Melbourne, 1944. The ruthless George Starling seeks revenge and has a plan to kill Detective Joe Sable. Knowing his superiors can’t help, Joe sets his own trap, but when the trap is sprung, who will be caught in it? The Autumn Murders is the latest stylish, historical whodunit from Robert Gott.
Never Enough is both a gripping memoir and a work of science by Judith Grisel, a renowned behavioural neuroscientist and recovering addict. It is a page-turning account that draws on personal insights to reveal how drugs work, the dangerous hold they can take on the brain, and the surprising way to combat today’s epidemic of addiction.
The Angina Monologues is full of heart-stopping stories of transplants, coronary artery bypasses, and cardiac arrest. Pioneering surgeon Samer Nashef tells stories of bringing cardiac surgery to the West Bank, split-second life-or-death decisions, and delivers humane advice about medical realities.
A re-release of a classic. Drawing on deep scientific research and Dr Gabor Maté’s acclaimed clinical work, When the Body Says No provides the answers to critical questions about the mind-body link – and the role that stress and our emotional makeup play in an array of common diseases such as arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, irritable bowel syndrome and multiple sclerosis.
Honourable Exit revisits the last days of the Vietnam War to uncover the previously untold story of a life-saving mass evacuation. Thurston Clarke chronicles how during those final days diplomats, businessmen, soldiers, missionaries, contractors, and spies risked their lives and disobeyed orders to help their translators, drivers, colleagues, neighbours, friends, and even perfect strangers to escape.
Reinventing Your Life is an internationally bestselling psychology and self-help classic. Two of America’s leading psychologists, Jeffrey E. Young, PhD, and Janet S. Klosko, PhD, draw on the breakthrough principles of cognitive therapy to help you recognise and change negative thought patterns, without the aid of drugs or long-term traditional therapy.
