Lawyer X by Anthony Dowsley and Patrick Carlyon
Lawyer X is the true crime investigation that rewrote the story of Melbourne's infamous gangland war and triggered a royal commission. Written by the two Herald Sun journalists who broke the story, this thrilling book is a scandalous true story of how a promising defence barrister from a privileged background broke all the rules.
Nicola Gobbo became both a police informer and her client's lover - sharing secrets and shaping the gangland war that led to sensational arrests and convictions. The story of how, and why, she became ‘Lawyer X’ is a compelling study in desperation and determination.
The Grand Tour by Olivia Wearne
This vivid story of campervans, stowaways and mischief at any age is essentially about families: the ones you have and the ones you make.
When Ruby and Angela embark on a Grey Nomads road trip, the last thing they expect is a tiny stowaway; one who will turn them from unsuspecting tourists into wanted kidnappers and land them in a world of trouble. As their leisurely retirement plans unravel, Angela's relationship with her brother Bernard goes from bad to worse as he has his own problems to contend with.
As Angela and Ruby set about repairing burnt bridges and helping their unexpected guest, and Bernard attempts to patch together his broken life, they discover that even after a lifetime of experience, you're never too old to know better.
The Grand Tour is the debut novel from Olivia Wearne and is a warm, funny, sharply observed story about aging disgracefully and loving the one you're with.
Gangland by Jared Savage
New Zealand is now one of the most lucrative illicit drug markets in the world, and organised crime is about making money. But over the past 20 years, the dealers have graduated from motorcycle gangs to Asian crime syndicates and now the most dangerous drug lords in the world - the Mexican cartels.
In Gangland, award-winning investigative reporter Jared Savage shines a light into New Zealand's rising underworld of organised crime and violent gangs.
A true-crime recount of the brutal execution of a husband-and-wife, the midnight fishing trip which led to the country's biggest cocaine bust and the gangster who shot his best friend in a motorcycle shop. These stories, plus more, go behind the headlines and open the door to an invisible world - a world where millions of dollars are made, life is cheap, and allegiances change like the flick of a switch.
