    SMALL TOWN. BIG SECRET.

    An unforgettable literary crime debut that brings the darkness in an Australian country town vividly to life, as it slowly reveals its devastating secrets.


    In the long, hot summer of 1989, Ben and Fab are best friends.

    Growing up in a small country town, they spend their days playing cricket, yabbying in local dams, wanting a pair of Nike Air Maxes and not talking about how Fab's dad hits him, or how the sudden death of Ben's next-door neighbour unsettled him. Almost teenagers, they already know some things are better left unsaid.

    Then a newcomer arrived in the Wimmera. Fab reckoned he was a secret agent and he and Ben staked him out. Up close, the man's shoulders were wide and the veins in his arms stuck out, blue and green. His hands were enormous, red and knotty. He looked strong. Maybe even stronger than Fab's dad. Neither realised the shadow this man would cast over both their lives.

    Twenty years later, Fab is still stuck in town, going nowhere but hoping for somewhere better. Then a body is found in the river, and Fab can't ignore the past any more.

    January, 1944. A bitter winter grips occupied France, where Marc Reece leads an SOE circuit facing deadly risks, operating in secret to sabotage the German war effort.

    But Marc has a second mission, secret from even his fellow agents - including Charlotte, the woman with whom he has ill-advisedly fallen in love. Everyone knows that D-Day is coming, and that the hours following the Allied landings will decide the war - and every last scrap of information he can provide might make all the difference in the fate of the western world.

    But when the circuit is ambushed - with deadly consequences - Marc realises there may be a spy in their ranks, putting at risk everything they've been fighting for.

    Then Charlotte goes missing. Marc faces an awful question - is she in peril, or has he been betrayed by the only woman he was sure he could trust? And if he risks everything in order to find her, what will become of his mission, and of the lives that depend on it?

    Gripping and atmospheric, this is the story of a man operating in the darkest of circumstances, and the unimaginable sacrifices war demands of those who fight it.

    Wyatt's been away. Now he's back.

    That's as much as anyone really knows about him. The rest is rumour, the kind that makes people wary. And that's fine with Wyatt.

    Eddie Oberin thinks he knows enough about Wyatt to make him an offer. A jewel heist- inside information courtesy of Lydia Stark, Eddie's much smarter ex-wife. The target is an international courier of stolen items- Alain Le Page.

    Wyatt doesn't know the name Le Page and he doesn't know Lydia.

    He will.

    He's guarding a deep secret ... But so is she. A stunning new thriller about the burden of shame from blockbuster author Sara Foster

    Lizzie Burdett was eighteen when she vanished, and Noah Carruso has never forgotten her. She was his first crush, his unrequited love. She was also his brother's girlfriend. Tom Carruso hasn't been home in over a decade. He left soon after Lizzie disappeared under a darkening cloud of suspicion, and now he's back for the inquest into Lizzie's death - intent on telling his side of the story. As the inquest looms, Noah meets Alice Pryce on holiday. They fall for each other fast and hard, but Noah can't bear to tell Alice his deepest fears. And Alice is equally stricken - she carries a terrible secret of her own. Is the truth worth telling if it will destroy everything?
