    The bestselling series, a former Richard and Judy bookclub pick, returns with another chilling case.Munch and Kruger.

    An unexpected pairing. A brilliant team.

    Winter 1999. An old man is driving home. It is dark and cold, and his is the only car on the road. Suddenly his headlights catch an animal up ahead. He hits the breaks furiously. Just in front of his bonnet he finds a young boy with a set of deer antlers on his head.

    Fourteen years later, a woman is found brutally murdered. Her body hidden in the boot of a car. She is the first but she won't be the last.

    Holger Munch is glad for the work; his personal life is anything but simple and escape is sweet. Mia Kruger is a woman on a mission. For the first time in a long time, she is clean.

    As more victims are reported, each crime scene is a little different to the last. There's an uncanny resemblance to cases from Mia's past. And then one day she sees a familiar face on the bus. It is her sister Sigrid, but she knows that's not possible, she's got the death certificate to prove it.

    When the luxury cruiser, hastily renamed Great Britain, berths in Kinloch harbour, the pressure is on D.C.I. Jim Daley. The UK Government are taking a high-powered group of businessmen and women on a tour of the British isles, golfing and seeing the sights, as part of a push for global trade. But when one of the crew goes missing , and an elderly local ornithologist disappears, will the pressure become too great?

    The arrival of a face from the past, sends Daley's world into a tailspin. And the lives of the passengers and crew of SS Great Britain, as well as the country's economic future are in jeopardy. D.S. Brian Scott comes to the fore, and replete with a temporary promotion, is once more — most reluctantly, in his case — back at sea.

    Daley faces a life and death struggle, but is this his last throw of the dice?

    Before Rai Sarris, Cashin was different. He moved more quickly then, he was less thoughtful, less easily spooked. But there are consequences when you've come that close to dying.
    For Cashin, they include a posting away from the world of murderers, of Homicide, to the quiet place on the coast where he grew up. Here all he has to do is play the country cop and walk the dogs. And sometimes think about how he was before Sarris.

    Then rich Charles Bourgoyne, the local benefactor, is bashed and everything seems to point to three boys from the nearby Aboriginal community. Cashin is unconvinced and as tragedy unfolds relentlessly into tragedy, he finds himself holding onto something that might be better let go.

    Cocaine. Construction. Corruption.

    The unholy trinity of Sydney


    Self-made property mogul Tina Leonard has already lost her business, her home and custody of her children because South East Banking Corporation left her bankrupt. Now it appears she is being framed for the murder of her banker Oliver Randall, a senior executive of the corporation. Her motive? Revenge for ruining her life and her business.

    When maverick lawyer Peter Tanner is brought in to represent Tina, he bends the law to learn the truth. Was the real killer employed by the bank to silence Randall, who knew too much about their corrupt clientele and business dealings?

    As Tanner digs deeper the truth is harder and harder to find. Drug dealers and dodgy cops are a breed apart from corrupt corporate bankers, who’ll do anything to keep their names in the clear.

    Who really silenced Randall? Tanner gets more than he bargained for as he tangles with craven bent banks and a client who can't talk, and danger lurks far too close to home.

    Richard Beasley's latest sharp-edged, gritty Peter Tanner thriller

    In this prequel to 'The Bookseller', former FBI profiler Hugo Marston has just become head of security at the US Embassy in London. He's asked to protect a famous movie-star couple, Dayton Harper and Ginny Ferro, who, while filming a movie in rural England, killed a local man in a hit and run. The task turns from routine to disastrous almost immediately.

    Before Hugo even meets them, he finds out that Ferro has disappeared, and her body has been found hanging from an oak tree in a London cemetery. Hours later a distraught Harper gives Hugo the slip, and Hugo has no idea where he's run off to.
    Taking cues from a secretive young lady named Merlyn, and with a Member of Parliament along for the chase, Hugo's search leads to a quaint English village. There, instead of finding Harper, more bodies turn up.

    NOBODY ASKED US TO LOOK. EVERY DAY, EVER SINCE, I STILL WISH WE HADN'T...

    Jaded reporter Andrew and his photographer boyfriend, Carlos, are sick of sifting the dregs of Mexico's drug war: from cartel massacres to corrupt politicians, they think they've seen it all.

    But when they find a body even the police are too scared to look at, what started out as just another reportage becomes the sort of story all reporters dream of...

    ...until Carlos pushes for answers too fast, and winds up murdered, leaving Andrew grief-stricken and flailing for answers, justice, and revenge.

    Caught in a web of dirty money that stretches from the boardrooms of the United States to the death squads of El Salvador, Andrew must decide whether to save himself - or find out who killed the man he loves, and destroyed the only home he's ever known.

    When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman's severed leg.

    From the internationally best-selling author of the acclaimed novel The Power Of The Dog comes The Cartel, a gripping true-to-life epic, ripped from the headlines, of power, corruption, revenge and justice spanning the past decade of the Mexican-American drug wars.

    It's 2004. DEA agent Art Keller has been fighting the war on drugs for thirty years in a blood feud against Adan Barrera, the head of El Federación, the world's most powerful cartel, and the man who brutally murdered Keller's partner. Finally putting Barrera away costs Keller dearly – the woman he loves, the beliefs he cherishes, the life he wants to lead.

    Then Barrera gets out, determined to rebuild the empire that Keller shattered. Unwilling to live in a world with Barrera in it, Keller goes on a ten-year odyssey to take him down. His obsession with justice – or is it revenge – becomes a ruthless struggle that stretches from the cities, mountains and deserts of Mexico, to Washington's corridors of power, to the streets of Berlin and Barcelona.

    Keller fights his personal battle against the devastated backdrop of Mexico's drug war, a conflict of unprecedented scale and viciousness, as cartels vie for power and he comes to the final reckoning with Barrera – and himself - that he always knew must happen.

    The Cartel is true-to-life story of power, corruption, revenge, honour and sacrifice, as one man tries to face down the devil without losing his soul. It is the story of the war on drugs and the men – and women – who wage it.

    THE ONLY WAY TO GET YOUR CHILD BACK IS TO KIDNAP ANOTHER.

    Listen carefully ...

    Your child has been kidnapped.

    You must abduct someone else's child to save your own.

    Disobey. Break the rules. Go to the cops. Your child will die.

    Your victim's parents must kidnap another child before yours is released.

    You are now part of the chain.

    The morning starts like any other. Rachel Klein drops her daughter, Kylie, at the bus stop and heads into her day. But then a phone call changes everything. A woman has Kylie bound and gagged in her back seat, and the only way Rachel will ever see her again is if she pays a ransom - and kidnaps another child. The caller is a mother herself, whose son has also been abducted, and if Rachel doesn't do exactly as she's told, both children will die. Rachel is now part of a terrifying scheme - The Chain.

    The rules are simple: find the money, find your victim, and then commit a horrible act you'd have thought yourself incapable of just 24 hours ago. Rachel is an ordinary woman, but over the coming days she will be pushed beyond ordinary limits to save her daughter. What the anonymous masterminds behind The Chain know is that parents will do anything for their children. But what they don't know is that they may have met their match.
