Detail - An unidentified man is fished out of the sea with an anchor strapped to his waist. And for Detective Inspector Hal Challis, this sparks the beginning of a chilling series of shotgun killings. As Challis investigates, a farmer on the peninsula erupts into violence and is the target of a massive manhunt. Meanwhile Challis's own emotional life is strained, and some of his police colleagues have allowed their public and private responsibilities to blur. And then Challis finds some aerial photographs in the possession of his friend Kitty that link her to the murders. Garry Disher has published almost fifty titles—fiction, children's books, anthologies, textbooks, the Wyatt thrillers and the Peninsula Crimes series. He has won numerous awards, including the German Crime Prize (twice) and two Ned Kelly Best Crime novel awards, for Chain of Evidence (2007) and Wyatt (2010). Garry lives on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. 'Taut and terrific, Kittyhawk Down is crime fiction at its best.' Age 'Kittyhawk Down is a tough little thriller that never lets up and offers an all-too-convincing snapshot of the fraying at the margins of every modern city.' Hobart Mercury

Detail - Darwin was a battle Australia would rather forget, yet the Japanese attack on 16 February 1942 was the first foreign assault on Australian soil since 1788. The raid was bigger than the first wave that attacked Pearl Harbor. Hundreds of Australians were killed. The police station and police barracks were totally destroyed, the hospital wrecked, the administration building shattered. And the people of Darwin abandoned their town leaving it to looters and a few dogged defenders with single-shot .303 rifles and a few anti-aircraft batteries. Peter Grose tells the real story of the attack and takes us into the lives of the people who were there.

Detail - The John S. Williams plantation in Georgia was operated largely with the labor of slaves--and this was in 1921, 56 years after the Civil War. Williams was not alone in using "peons," but his reaction to a federal investigation was almost unbelievable: he decided to destroy the evidence. Enlisting the aid of his trusted black farm boss, Clyde Manning, he began methodically killing his slaves. As this true story unfolds, each detail seems more shocking, and surprises continue in the aftermath, with a sensational trial galvanizing the nation and marking a turning point in the treatment of black Americans.
