biography

The healing power of love

Little Prisoners is a harrowing, yet moving memoir about two innocent and frightened ‘unfosterable’ children who do not know what it means to be loved. The shock that strikes Casey and her family when Ashton and Olivia arrive is immeasurable. Two frightened little waifs stand before them, hair running wild with head lice, filthy nails and skin covered in scabs. Ashton, aged nine, and Olivia, aged six, are the eldest of five siblings, taken away from their family because they were considered at risk.

Originally an temporary, emergency placement, the weeks turn into months. And gradually the children start to feel like they truly belong to a family and to reveal the horror of what happened to them. Paperback • $

Michael Chamberlain tells his side of the story NEW In 1980, Michael and Lindy Chamberlain’s daughter, Azaria, disappeared whilst the family was camping near Uluru. When Lindy was found guilty of the baby’s murder in 1982, Michael was convicted of being an accessory after the fact. The findings of a 1987 Royal Commission ultimately exonerated the couple, but not before they were subjected to sensationalist reporting and intense public scrutiny. Now, after 30 years and on the eve of the verdict of a fourth inquest, Michael Chamberlain gives his own account of the death of Azaria. This is the first time he’s spoken about this tragic event in the public sphere, and his book also includes exclusive never-before-published family photos. Colour photos •

true crime & biography

A real-life tale more chilling NEW than fiction

One of the most shocking episodes in Australia’s history The Milperra massacre on Father’s Day, 1984, during which seven people, including a 15-year-old girl, were killed in a clash between two heavily-armed bikie gangs, the Comancheros and the Bandidos, has become part of Australian folklore.

Vendetta tells the story of the Mafia murders that stunned Italy and how the killers were brought to justice. On 23 May 1992, the Mafia murdered its ‘Number One Enemy’, prosecutor Judge Falcone, with a motorway bomb that also killed his wife and three bodyguards. Fifty-seven days later, the Mafia also murdered Falcone’s friend and colleague, Judge Borsellino, with a car bomb outside his mother’s home that also killed five bodyguards. These murders changed forever the way that Italy views the Mafia. Based on interviews and the testimony of investigators, Mafia super grasses, survivors, relatives and friends, Vendetta recounts how the Mafiosi planned and carried out the murders and the police hunted them down.

Brothers In Arms tells the extraordinary story of this murderous outbreak, and has been adapted by Channel Ten into a prime time mini-series. Paperback • 271 pages •

10 An Australian classic To write the history of The Ghan, Basil Fuller made the journey in a brake van from Port Augusta to the Alice, along the way speaking with old-timers who remembered those epic days.

“I’ll fight but not surrender’, cried the Wild Colonial Boy” Wild Colonial Boys takes the reader on a chronological journey, from the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788, to the tormented years of Port Arthur and Norfolk Island, and on to the saga of the last defiant Irishman, Ned Kelly.

Fascinating glimpses of the past – public and political opinion at the time, tales of itinerant doctors, cameleers and navvies – are interwoven into Fuller’s account of the vital train service that has become an Australian legend.

With more than 200 photographs, engravings and items of ephemera, as well as a brand new chapter on the bushranger myth in the 21st century, this is Australian history writing at its finest. 200+ illustrations • Paperback • 320 pages •

An alternative view of the dog’s world This book will lead you through the key stages of a dog’s development, from the buoyant energy of the Puppy, through the troublesome teens that are the ages of the Playboy and the Protégé, the difficult middle years of the Pretender and the Protector, to the twilight years of the Pensioner. It also addresses the issues that crop up during a dog’s development – from toilet training and vaccinations, to puberty and parenthood.

In this fascinating book, Nigel Allsop lifts the lid on the world of police dogs, examining the vital role they play both in Australia and around the world. Despite the high-tech devices now available to law enforcement officials, ‘K9s’ – as they’re known in the trade – remain an indispensable part of police work in a range of fields, most notably terrorism and border protection. K9s may sometimes be sent into difficult and dangerous sitations, but this is never done without care and concern, for at the heart of their role is the relationship between dog and handler.

An informative and heart-warming account, perfect for dog lovers, K9 Cops explores the history, training and employment of police dogs. Softcover • 288 pages •
