On 7 December 2003 Daniel Morcombe disappeared on the Sunshine Coast, while waiting for a bus. For Bruce and Denise Morcombe - the parents of Daniel - and his brothers, Bradley and Dean, it was apparent within hours that something was very wrong. In the first few days following Daniel's disappearance, Bruce and Denise made a promise to their son that they would never ever stop looking for him, and bring who was responsible to justice. 'We will never give up.' As the nightmare of hours became days then weeks, and months and years, the family mobilised to become the moral force behind the longest criminal investigation in Australia's history. Where is Daniel? covers the decade-long investigation into the disappearance of Daniel and the extraordinary courage, dignity, persistence and fortitude Bruce and Denise displayed under unbearable circumstances. This determination also applied to Bruce and Denise's desire to mine something positive from the darkest of experiences. They started the Daniel Morcombe Foundation in 2005, to teach children about safety, and have since visited hundreds of schools around Australia. They've established Australia's largest annual child safety day-of-action, 'Day for Daniel', and utilised the funds raised to support other children who have been the victims of abuse. Over a decade later, with Daniel's killer brought to justice thanks to an amazing covert police sting, this is the family's story. Where is Daniel? is a testament to the enduring power of love between parents and their child, and the strength and bonds of family to survive.

The 1950s and 1960s saw a changing of the guard in Londons gangland. A new and even more ruthless breed of criminal emerged to replace the aging generation of likes of Sabini, Mullins and Hayes. Protection rackets on bookies, club owners and shops were commonplace. Prostitution and drugs offered rich pickings. Police corruption was all too commonplace. Thanks to media interest the names of Charlie Richardson, Mad Frankie Fraser, Scarface Smithson and the Nichols became as widely known as they were feared. And then there were the Kray Twins, whose notoriety and brutality became watchwords. But as this insider book reveals they did not have it all their own way. For a thrilling and shocking story London's Gangs at War is in a class of its own. What makes it so chilling is that the murders, torture and mayhem actually happened.

How did a father with no criminal history come to be on trial for the brutal murder of his wife? It began with a phone call to Brisbane police on 20 April 2012. Allison, wife of real estate agent Gerard Baden-Clay, was missing. When investigating officers arrived at the family home, in one of the city's wealthiest suburbs, a neatly dressed Gerard was about to send the couple's three daughters off to school. Scratches on his face were shaving cuts, he told them. Police weren't so sure and opened one of Australia's most high-profile investigations. Ten days after Gerard reported Allison's disappearance, the body of the former beauty queen was discovered on a creek bank 14 kilometres from home. The Murder of Allison Baden-Clay is written by the investigative journalist who covered the case from the start. It weaves together exclusive interviews and police and court records to explain how an upstanding family man with no criminal history received a life sentence for murder. It's a story of love, lust, image, ambition and marriage. It's also a story about everyday choices and their consequences.

He was a 'crooked hat', a bent copper, and he was working with a notorious Dutch crime cartel to flood Australia with millions of dollars' worth of drugs. To those who knew him, Mark Standen was a stand-up guy, a top cop who was never one to mince his words. As an assistant director for the NSW Crime Commission, he led some of Australia's most high-profile criminal investigations and, as a 30-year veteran in law enforcement, there was little he didn't know about the underworld. He had been privy to every top secret police operation into organised crime and international drug running in Australia except one - Operation Octans, which saw him arrested as the mastermind behind one of the country's biggest-ever drug-smuggling plots. Standen's breach of security was breath-taking, prompting a review of every major police operation he had knowledge of. The fallout from discovering this rat in the ranks - a man driven by sex, greed and an insatiable gambling habit - reaches around the world. Charles Miranda was given world exclusive access to go inside the joint Dutch-Australian operation that was one of the most extensive and covert ever mounted. He follows the twists and turns in the plot that made front page news across Australia. Engrossing, frightening and action packed, this is truly a story that everybody will be talking about.
