            The follow-up to the ABIA award-winning, international bestselling sensation Penguin Bloom The heart-warming Australian story Penguin Bloom - the miraculous tale of a baby magpie that helped save a young mother and her family - is a homegrown and international bestseller; soon to... be a major Hollywood movie, starring Naomi Watts and Andrew Lincoln. Sam's personal message at the end of the book has resonated powerfully with readers - where, pulling no punches, she writes about what it is really like to face life in a wheelchair. In Sam Bloom, Sam tells her own story for the first time - how a shy but determined Australian girl became a nurse and travelled across Africa. How she fell in love with a like-minded free spirit, raised three boys and built a life together on Sydney's Northern Beaches. And then, in a single horrific moment, how everything changed. Sam's journey back from the edge of death and the depths of despair is so much more than an account of overcoming adversity. Sam's captivating true story - written by close friend, New York Times bestselling author Bradley Trevor Greive, and featuring extraordinary photographs taken by Sam's husband, Cameron Bloom - is humbling, heartbreaking and uplifting in equal measure. A triumph of raw emotion and incredible beauty, Sam Bloom: Heartache & Birdsong is a truly unforgettable book. Penguin Bloom is soon to be a major motion picture starring Naomi Watts, Andrew Lincoln, Jacki Weaver and Rachel House. PRAISE FOR PENGUIN BLOOM: 'A unique and remarkable insight into a family dealing with tragedy and finding their way through it with love, courage and hope' - Naomi Watts 'a coffee-table book that will make hearts soar' - Daily Telegraph

            The Virgin Suicides meets Little Fires Everywhere: inspired by a true story, this haunting novel pieces together a chorus of voices to explore the aftermath of a college student's death On a cold day in 1997, student Sara Morgan was killed in the woods surrounding her liberal art...s college in upstate New York. Her boyfriend, Blake Campbell, confessed, his plea of temporary insanity raising more questions than it answered. In the aftermath of his acquittal, the case comes to haunt a strange and surprising network of community members, from the young woman who discovers Sara's body to the junior reporter who senses its connection to convicted local serial killer John Logan. Others are looking for retribution or explanation: Sara's half-sister, stifled by her family's bereft silence about Blake, poses as a babysitter and seeks out her own form of justice, while the teenager Sara used to babysit starts writing to Logan in prison. A propulsive, taut tale of voyeurism and obsession, Nothing Can Hurt You dares to examine gendered violence not as an anomaly, but as the very core of everyday life. Tracing the concentric circles of violence rippling out from Sara's murder, Nicole Maye Goldberg masterfully conducts an unforgettable chorus of disparate voices.

            Hate Mail (EPUB ebook)

            By Morri, Mark

            Sydney, 1998. Personal trainer Brett Boyd arrives home to find a package waiting in the driveway. It's addressed to his girlfriend, model and part-time escort Simone Farrow. Hours later, Boyd is in hospital, fighting for his life. The parcel was a bomb that had exploded in his fa...ce, leaving him badly disfigured and lucky to be alive. Who was behind such a violent and calculated attack? What did they want? And why was the parcel addressed to his girlfriend? Suspicion immediately falls onto Boyd's former business partner, a rising TV star named Roberto de Heredia. But it turns out that there was much more to their 'business' than anyone had imagined, and the investigation leads straight to Kings Cross, the beating heart of Sydney's organised crime scene that has just descended into chaos in the wake of a royal commission into police corruption. De Heredia is soon arrested for the bombing, but while out on bail, he fakes his death and flees the country using a false passport. It's not until years later, long after he thinks he is safe living under a different name on the sunny coast of Spain, that two Aussie cops unearth the cold case file and decide that it's not over. And so ensues an international manhunt to see de Heredia extradited to Australia and brought to justice. Veteran crime reporter and bestselling author Mark Morri has followed these extraordinary events since the very beginning, and this book is filled with extensive interviews with detectives, crooks and the star witnesses. HATE MAIL is a gripping account of one of Sydney's most unbelievable and notorious cases, a story twenty years in the making.

            The Pretty Girl Killer (EPUB ebook)

            By Byrne, Andrew

            This is the story of Christopher Wilder: the surf-loving son of a decorated naval war hero born in the suburbs of Sydney, who became the most wanted man in America - a psychopathic serial killer who slaughtered more than sixteen young women in the USA and is the prime suspect in ...the infamous Australian Wanda Beach murders. Wilder was handsome and charming, and time and time again he managed to convince beautiful young women that he was a fashion photographer looking to help them start a career in modelling. What followed were some of the most brutal, sadistic crimes the world has ever seen - as well as a years-long police operation, dogged by missed opportunities and bad decisions, to track the killer down. Featuring new evidence unearthed from case files and interviews with FBI agents, witnesses and survivors, some of whom have spoken for the first time since the horrendous crimes were committed, The Pretty Girl Killer takes us right into the mind and moment of one of Australia's most heinous exports.
