The shocking story of a British girl forced into the sex trade

NEW

When Sophie Hayes met Bledi she knew he’d change her life – but she had no idea how much. At first, it was a typical whirlwind romance. But one day Bledi told her that love always comes at a price ... Bledi tricked Sophie into travelling to Italy, where he forced her to sell her body to help him pay off a debt. Terrified and ashamed, Sophie worked the dangerous Italian streets without rest, seeing as many as 30 clients in a night. She was completely at Bledi’s mercy for food, clothes and shelter. And without money, friends or family, she was trapped. But Sophie found the strength to keep going, clinging to life by a single thread of hope: that somehow she’d find a way to escape.

The ‘inland sea’ so many early explorers died trying to discover, Lake Eyre’s basin makes up one sixth of the Australian continent. But most of the time the lake is empty, a vast salty desert plain. Only when the great rains sweep in from Queensland, does the lake fill up. Journalist Paul Lockyer tells the story of the lake through words and images – from its ancient history as a lush home to megafauna, to the present day where it can change from a deeply inhospitable salt pan to a wetland teeming with birds and wildlife. He delves into the colourful stories of those who’ve been drawn to the place: explorers, adventurers, artists, settlers and cattle kings, and documents the dramatic impact of recent floods.

One of the greatest stories of mateship, courage and survival Bad Ground is the authorised story of the 14-day entombment and rescue of miners Brant Webb and Todd Russell, who were trapped by a rock fall one kilometre underground on 25 April 2006. Russell and Webb shared explicit details of their ordeal with Tony Wright, giving him an uncensored account of the darkest first five days during which little hope was held of ever finding them. Wright’s enthralling, often spine-chilling narrative begins with a portrait of the small Tasmanian mining township in which the drama unfolded. It reads like a psychological thriller as it follows the many intriguing developments surrounding its central characters and their families, above ground and deep down below. Paperback •
