This case is too good to be true
Double the cases ... double the danger
The Litigators is a tremendously entertaining book, filled with the kind of courtroom strategies, theatrics and suspense that makes John Grisham such a mega-selling storyteller.
Michael Connelly, one of the world’s best crime writers, returns with another fast-paced thriller featuring celebrated LAPD detective Harry Bosch from The Reversal and Nine Dragons.
For more than 20 years, the partners at Finley & Figg – all two of them – have called themselves ‘a boutique law firm.’ ‘Boutique’ as in stylish, selective and prosperous. This is far from the truth. They are really a two-bit operation always in search of their big break.
Bosch has been put on the DROP – Deferred Retirement Option Plan – and given three years before his retirement is enforced. Now, he wants cases more fiercely than ever. Then, in one morning, he gets two.
After David Zinc, a young but already burned-out attorney, quits his prestigious legal job and goes on a serious bender, he ends up at Finley & Figg. With David’s help, they tackle a lucrative case, which seems too good to be true. Hardback •
First, a cold case gets a DNA hit for a rape and murder, which points the finger at a 29-year-old convicted rapist who was only eight at the time of the murder. Then a city councilman’s son is found dead – fallen or pushed from a hotel window – and he insists on Bosch taking the case despite past antagonism. Softcover •

The tale of the legendary Mawson
Speeches, pieces of journalism, obituaries and memorials from Paul Keating, Australia’s most quotable Prime Minister, come together to form the closest thing we’ll ever get to an autobiography of the man who was Prime Minister of Australia from 1991 to 1996.
In 1912, the great Australian polar explorer Douglas Mawson found himself all alone in Antarctica, 257 kilometres from safety, with next to no food. How on earth did he survive?
Fully annotated with specially written introductions, here are 13 years of material collected for the first time in book form. They offer a unique view of the man and his passions. Keating speaks on every subject under the sun – from John Howard and sworn enemies, to German architecture, friendship and privacy, to international financial systems and way beyond. It is full of the flair and turn of phrase you’d expect from the one and only Paul Keating. Hardback •
