      In a first-time collaboration, "Queen of Suspense" Mary Higgins Clark partners with bestselling author Alafair Burke to deliver a brand new suspense series about a television program featuring cold case murders. Television producer Laurie Moran is delighted when the pilot for her reality drama, Under Suspicion, is a success. Even more, the program--a cold case series that revisits unsolved crimes by recreating them with those affected--is off to a fantastic start when it helps solve an infamous murder in the very first episode. Now Laurie has the ideal case to feature in the next episode of Under Suspicion: the Cinderella Murder. When Susan Dempsey, a beautiful and multi-talented UCLA student, was found dead, her murder raised numerous questions. Why was her car parked miles from her body? Had she ever shown up for the acting audition she was due to attend at the home of an up-and-coming director? Why does Susan's boyfriend want to avoid questions about their relationship? Was her disappearance connected to a controversial church that was active on campus? Was she close to her computer science professor because of her technological brilliance, or something more? And why was Susan missing one of her shoes when her body was discovered? With the help of lawyer and Under Suspicion host Alex Buckley, Laurie knows the case will attract great ratings, especially when the former suspects include Hollywood's elite and tech billionaires. The suspense and drama are perfect for the silver screen--but is Cinderella's murderer ready for a close-up?

I'd say there were fifteen shots in the first volley, evenly spaced, lasting about twenty-five seconds....

Wars never end. They go on loudly or they go on quietly. They grip you with bulldog teeth. The town of Wirrawee is emerging from war, slowly. School's back in, Juicy's open for coffee, farmers are bidding at the cattle sales. Ellie Linton at last gets what she longed for and what she fought for, to be back on the farm with her parents. But it's not the same. A new nation is on the other side of a border. Suddenly the war is about to explode into Ellie's life again. The effects are devastating. The consequences will change her forever.

      It is the driest, flattest, hottest, most desiccated, infertile and climatically aggressive of all the inhabited continents and still Australia teems with life - a large portion of it quite deadly. In fact, Australia has more things that can kill you in a very nasty way than anywhere else. Ignoring such dangers - and yet curiously obsessed by them - Bill Bryson journeyed to Australia and promptly fell in love with the country. And who can blame him? The people are cheerful, extrovert, quick-witted and unfailingly obliging: their cities are safe and clean and nearly always built on water; the food is excellent; the beer is cold and the sun nearly always shines. Life doesn't get much better than this...

      A groundbreaking guide to defeating diabetes without drugs--including a step-by-step diet plan, recipes, and the science behind why the program works--from #1 New York Times bestseller Dr.
      A groundbreaking guide to defeating diabetes without drugs--including a step-by-step diet plan, recipes, and the science behind why the program works--from #1 New York Times bestseller Dr. Michael Mosley whose life-changing FastDiet series brought on "a health revolution" (New York Times). Thirteen percent of the US population (thirty million Americans) has diabetes. Eighty-six million Americans have pre-diabetes, meaning their blood sugar levels are dangerously high, and they are teetering on the edge of full-blown diabetes. The CDC estimates that 40% of the current adult population (ninety million Americans) will at some point develop diabetes, a disease that, until recently, was considered irreversible. In this trailblazing book, Michael Mosley, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the FastDiet series, introduces revolutionary new research that indicates diabetes can be treated--and cured--without drugs and their harmful side effects. By following a simple diet of 800 calories a day for six weeks, patients have seen blood glucose levels decrease by a huge margin. With the same encouraging, practical demeanor and invaluable physician's mind of his FastDiet series, Mosley tackles the Type 2 diabetes epidemic with a completely approachable treatment program that can help you reverse the disease--or prevent its onset--in a matter of weeks.

      n 1978 Warren Fellows was convicted of heroin trafficking between Thailand and Australia, and sentenced to life imprisonment in the notorious Bang Kwang prison, better known as the Bangkok Hilton. It was the beginning of 12 years of hell in a place where sewer rats and cockroaches are the only nutritious food, where prison guards laugh as they deliver pulverising blows and where the worst punishment is the khun deo, solitary confinement, Thai style. This is not Warren Fellows' plea for forgiveness nor his denial of guilt, but a story of endurance and survival and the abuse of human rights during the decade of a life wasted in leg irons. It is an essential read: hearbreaking, fascinating and impossible to put down.
