“I did not know Judge Fogletree, but I know who killed him, and why. I am a lawyer, and I am in prison. It’s a long story.”
From the author of Matilda Is Missing, Sisters Of Mercy is the haunting story of two sisters – one has vanished, the other is behind bars ...

And Judge Raymond Fogletree has just became number five. When he fails to show up for a trial, his law clerks panic and call the FBI, and in due course the agents find the crime scene: the basement of a lakeside cabin. There’s no forced entry, no struggle, just two dead bodies – Judge Fogletree and his young secretary ...

Combining delightful photos with stories ranging from the hilarious to the poignant, Feline Friends captures all that is so fascinating, entertaining and endearing about our most independent of pets.

An Australian war horse who became a legend
In performance and character, Bill stood above all the other 200,000 Australian horses sent to the Middle East during the Great War. But there was a problem: only one man could ride him, Major Michael Shanahan, earning Bill the epithet of ‘Bill the Bastard’.
Each story and photo, over 60 in total, has been sent in by cat lovers to the Cat Protection Society of NSW, and royalties from the sale of the book will assist in supporting this charity. Over 60
Bill and Shanahan fought together and depended on each other for their survival. Bill’s heroic efforts and exceptional instincts in battle saved the lives of Shanahan and four of his men. By September, 1918, Bill had become a symbol of the courage and unbreakable spirit of the Light Horse regiment.
