The Shadows

By J. R. Ward
The 13th book in JR Ward's Sunday Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood seriesTwo brothers bound by more than blood fight to change a brutal destiny in the heart-wrenching new novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood by Sunday Times bestselling author J. R. Ward.

Trez "Latimer" doesn't really exist. And not just because the identity was created so that a Shadow could function in the underbelly of the human world. Sold by his parents to the Queen of the S'Hsibe as a child, Trez escaped the Territory and has been a pimp and an enforcer in Caldwell, NY for years- all the while on the run from a destiny of sexual servitude. He's never had anyone he could totally rely on . . . except for his brother, iAm.

iAm's sole goal has always been to keep his brother from self-destructing- and he knows he's failed. It's not until the Chosen Serena enters Trez's life that the male begins to turn things around... but by then it's too late. The pledge to mate the Queen's daughter comes due and there is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, and no negotiating.

Trapped between his heart and a fate he never volunteered for, Trez must decide whether to endanger himself and others- or forever leave behind the female he's in love with. But then an unimaginable tragedy strikes and changes everything. Staring out over an emotional abyss, Trez must find a reason to go on or risk losing himself and his soul forever. And iAm, in the name of brotherly love, is faced with making the ultimate sacrifice . . .After graduating from law school J.R. Ward began working in health care in Boston and spent many years as chief of staff for one of the premier academic medical centres in the US.

A Place Called Winter

By Patrick Gale
From the author of the bestselling NOTES FROM AN EXHIBITION comes an irresistible, searching and poignant historical novel of love, relationships, secrets and escape.Picked for the BBC Radio 2 Simon Mayo Book Club

To find yourself, sometimes you must lose everything.

A privileged elder son, and stammeringly shy, Harry Cane has followed convention at every step. Even the beginnings of an illicit, dangerous affair do little to shake the foundations of his muted existence - until the shock of discovery and the threat of arrest cost him everything.

Forced to abandon his wife and child, Harry signs up for emigration to the newly colonised Canadian prairies. Remote and unforgiving, his allotted homestead in a place called Winter is a world away from the golden suburbs of turn-of-the-century Edwardian England. And yet it is here, isolated in a seemingly harsh landscape, under the threat of war, madness and an evil man of undeniable magnetism that the fight for survival will reveal in Harry an inner strength and capacity for love beyond anything he has ever known before.

In this exquisite journey of self-discovery, loosely based on a real life family mystery, Patrick Gale has created an epic, intimate human drama, both brutal and breathtaking. It is a novel of secrets, sexuality and, ultimately, of great love.A writer with heart, soul, and a dark and naughty wit, one whose company you relish and trust - ObserverWhat Gale does so well is to delineate the unpremeditated consequences of actions...The final chapter left me with a lump in my throat - GuardianLate at night on the day a new Patrick Gale arrives I am always to be found crouching on the icy bathroom floor, banished from the bedroom for keeping my husband awake, feverishly turning the pages - SpectatorA master storyteller.

Operation Rimau

By Peter Thompson, Robert Macklin
Australia's heroic and daring commando raid on Singapore.In the last months of 1944, a group of elite Australian and British commandos was selected for the biggest Allied behind-the-scenes operation of the Pacific War. Their mission: to devastate the enemy's shipping by destroying the Japanese ships at anchor in Singapore Harbour.

Operation Rimau, Britain's last throw of the colonial dice in South-East Asia, was intended as a body blow to the Japanese and a signal to the world that she would reclaim her Eastern Empire. Britain was trying to reclaim past glory - while Australia's wartime prime minister, John Curtin, had turned to America. In this atmosphere, Operation Rimau was planned ...

OPERATION RIMAU takes us inside the fierce conflict, and tells what really happened to these brave commandos - from the very beginnings of the operation through to their intense and courageous fighting in the South China Seas, and its aftermath. It exposes the sloppy planning behind the raid, and names the officers who betrayed and abandoned them in their hour of need, and details the political double-dealing which for so many years hid the real story behind red tape and bureaucratic lies.

Previously published as KILL THE TIGER, new material has been added to this edition of OPERATION RIMAU.Hachette Australia2015Peter Thompson (Author)

Peter Thompson is a London-based Australian writer and the author of a number of books, including Pacific Fury, Shanghai Fury and (with Robert Macklin) the author of The Big Fella: The Rise and Rise of BHP Billiton.

By Nina George

Headscarves and Hymens

By Mona Eltahawy
A passionate manifesto decrying misogyny in the Arab world by award-winning journalist Mona Eltahawy.In November 2011, Mona Eltahawy came to worldwide attention when she was assaulted by police during the Egyptian Revolution. She responded by writing a groundbreaking piece in Foreign Policy entitled 'Why Do They Hate Us'; 'They' being Muslim men, 'Us' being women. It sparked huge controversy.

In HEADSCARVES AND HYMENS, Eltahawy takes her argument further. Drawing on her years as a campaigner and commentator on women's issues in the Middle East, she explains that since the Arab Spring began, women in the Arab world have had two revolutions to undertake: one fought with men against oppressive regimes, and another fought against an entire political and economic system that treats women as second-class citizens in countries from Yemen and Saudi Arabia to Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya.

Eltahawy has travelled across the Middle East and North Africa, meeting with women and listening to their stories. Her book is a plea for outrage and action on their behalf, confronting the 'toxic mix of culture and religion that few seem willing or able to disentangle lest they blaspheme or offend.' A manifesto motivated by hope and fury in equal measure, HEADSCARVES AND HYMENS is as illuminating as it is incendiary.Mona Eltahawy is an award-winning journalist and commentator on Arab and Muslim issues. She has appeared as a guest speaker on CNN, the BBC and Al Jazeera, and her essays have been published by the Washington Post, the Guardian and the New York Times. She has won numerous awards for her writing, including the European Union's Samir Kasis Prize for Freedom of the Press in 2009. Newsweek magazine named Mona as one of its 150 Fearless Women of 2012. She lives in Cairo and New York.A passionate manifesto decrying misogyny in the Arab world by award-winning journalist Mona Eltahawy.Eltahawy has a powerful media presence: she has a Twitter feed with 192,000 followers, she frequently gives TedX talks and performs speaking engagements around the world.This is a hugely timely, utterly fearless book. Its content is explosive and publication is sure to generate an enormous amount of coverage across the globe.'Why Do They Hate Us?' brought Mona Eltahawy to global attention and went truly viral, spawning an extraordinary number of columns, comments on the web, opinion pieces and stories from those who had undergone similar experiences. Mona did dozens of follow-up interviews on radio and television. It is clear that misogyny in the Arab world is something that enrages the public.The book tackles the practice of FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), which is currently very high on the political agenda in the UK and around the world.
