A killer who’s always one step ahead

One of the best heroines in crime fiction

Richard Montanari, author of The Rosary Girls and The Echo Man, returns with The Killing Room, a police thriller that is perfect for fans of crime on the dark side.

As the temperature in Sweden reaches a record-breaking 45°, all those who’ve failed to escape Linköping for the summer take shelter indoors, shocked and paralysed by the heat.

In the heart of Philadelphia’s badlands, Homicide Detectives Byrne and Balzano are called out to a particularly chilling crime scene. Once the pillar of the neighbourhood, an abandoned church has become a killing room. At first it looks like a random act of violence. But then a second body is found, and a third, and each crime scene is more disturbing than the last.

Then a teenage girl is discovered naked and bleeding in a local park, and soon a second girl is found dead. Alarmed by the fact that the victims are the same age as her daughter, Detective Malin Fors works around the clock to capture the perpetrator. But every lead comes to nothing, and time isn’t on Malin’s side ...

With very few leads, Byrne and Balzano are faced with challenges they could never have imagined as they race against time to hunt down the most brutal killer they’re ever encountered. Softcover • 2

England’s most scandalous mistress

NEW

When Elizabeth I arrives at Kenilworth Castle amid a wealth of lavish festivities, laid on by the Earl of Leicester, the hopeful Earl knows this is his last chance to persuade the Queen to marry him. But Leicester is unable to resist the seductive wiles of Lettice, wife of the Earl of Essex.

History paints Alice Perrers as a low-born and greedy woman, who used her position of power as the mistress of King Edward III purely for her own ends.

Taken from the gutter to serve as a lady-in-waiting to Philippa, queen of England, Alice was an object of jealousy from the outset. Like no other woman of the court, confident, bold and forthright, she became mistress to Philippa’s husband, Edward III, when she was 15 years of age. Her enemies wanted her banished, but after Philippa’s death, the King commanded that she be dressed in golden garments and paraded as “The Lady Of The Sun.” In The King’s Concubine, Anne O’Brien rewrites tradition, creating a dazzling vision of Alice Perrers like never seen before.

In the tradition of Lunch In Paris

A truly inspiring story

“What a ... delightful tasting menu of a book: the kids, the plump dog, the Italian husband. Reading this memoir was like wandering through a Parisian patisserie in a dream. I absolutely loved it” – Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love. In Paris In Love, Eloisa James tells of how she ran away to Paris, albeit with her husband and two children in tow. Eloisa soon falls under the spell of the nearby boulangeries, where “the smell of baking bread feels like a welcome.” Her Italian husband, Alessandro, attempts to perfect his French, her 15-year-old son, Luca, seeks out a local girlfriend, and Anna, aged 11, plots against a schoolyard nemesis while nursing a resentment for all things Parisian (barring chocolates and the macabre rat-catcher’s shop).

Part musical odyssey, part NEW dazzling love story

A Rothschild by birth and a Baroness by marriage, beautiful, spirited Pannonica – known as Nica – seemed to have it all: children, a handsome husband and a trust fund. But in the early 1950s she heard a piece by the jazz legend Thelonious Monk. The music overtook her like a magic spell, and she abandoned her marriage to go and find him. The Baroness traces Nica’s extraordinary, thrilling journey – from England’s stately homes to the battlefields of Africa, passing under the shadow of the Holocaust, and finally to the creative ferment of the New York jazz scene. Hannah Rothschild’s search to solve the mystery of her rebellious great-aunt draws on their long friendship and years of meticulous research and interviews. Softcover •

– Queen Sofia of Spain

Bob Katter Jr. is one of the country’s best known federal politicians. A complex man, he’s forthright, outspoken and has achieved extraordinary notoriety as a politician of real conviction across an astonishing breadth of issues that defy all attempts at easy categorisation.

A rich and evocative account of convict women

An Incredible Race Of People is a highly personal and, at times, challenging investigation of Australia’s politics and industry over many decades: heroes are applauded and pretenders dismissed, urgent issues are identified and solutions tabled.

From the crowded tenements of Edinburgh to the Female Factory in the shadow of Mt Wellington, dozens of Scottish women convicts were exiled to Van Diemen’s Land with their young children.

In the tradition of the greatest statesmen, Bob Katter Jr. urges readers to consider, discuss, and act to ensure Australia’s future in the 21st century remains bright.

Lucy Frost tells the stories of a boatload of women and their children who arrived in Hobart in 1838, bringing to life a long-forgotten but fascinating group of women at the bottom of society. Softcover • 288 pages •
