Don’t Be­lieve It by Char­lie Don­lea

Char­lie Don­lea’s sec­ond thriller is just as tense with big twists. Grace, im­pris­oned for 10 years in St Lu­cia for the mur­der of her boyfriend de­spite her con­tin­ued pleas of in­no­cence, en­lists the help of old school friend, Sid­ney. Sid­ney, now an in­flu­en­tial TV pro­ducer of true crime sto­ries, has the case re­opened and broad­cast live across Amer­ica. The sus­pense builds and builds – this is a grip­ping thriller.

Aus­tralia Reimag­ined by Hugh Mackay

Es­sen­tial read­ing for any­one who loves Aus­tralia and wants to make it a bet­ter place for all. Tak­ing an un­flinch­ing look at our na­tion, so­cial re­searcher Hugh Mackay of­fers some com­pelling pro­pos­als for a more com­pas­sion­ate and so­cially co­he­sive Aus­tralia. De­spite sta­tis­tics show­ing Pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion be­ing un­der-re­sourced, our lack of trust in ma­jor in­sti­tu­tions and po­lit­i­cal lead­ers, and the fact that we are more so­cially frag­mented, anx­ious, over­weight and de­pressed, Hugh re­mains op­ti­mistic, and his ideas will be hard to get out of your head.
