Description:

It is 1941, and the German High Command has sent General Irwin Rommel and the Afrika Korps to bolster the faltering Italian ground forces in North Africa and take over the beleaguered fortress of Tobruk. The defenders hang on grimly, but prisoners are taken on both sides in the ebb and flow of battle.
In Greece and Crete, the reverse occurs; Commonwealth forces are overwhelmed by the might of the Wermacht, and many fall into the hands of the Germans. Many of the Australian and New Zealand prisoners eventually find themselves incarcerated in Campo 57, Gruppignano in north east Italy, under the iron fist of the notorious Colonel Calcaterra of the Caribinieri.
Unbroken is the true story of Australian POWs, their capture, their attempted escapes and their ultimate liberation.

Description:

Alexander Otto has it all - eminence as a surgeon, admiring colleagues, a loving family. Yet from the opening lines of this modern tragedy, he is a man on the run. What secrets lie beneath the successful veneer of Alexander Otto's life? Edwina Frye is Otto's biographer, she is also having an affair with him. As she writes the official biography, she writes a parallel life of Alexander which develops into a disturbing fiction of betrayal and revenge. UNDER THE KNIFE does not take comfortable sides as it swings between the slippery poles of truth and fiction, love and obsession, resplendent public achievements and unpardonable private transgressions.

Description:

By the firelight, a mysterious storyteller weaves a captivating tale of sea journeys, vampire women, and Aboriginal Dreaming. Around the campfire the gold diggers listen and journey with George as he plunges underground to rescue his ship's captain from the horrific and mesmerising vampire woman.
Jangamuttuk, the Master of the Ghost Dreaming, sends his son, George, to rescue Wadawaka from the 'ghost' vampire woman who has taken him as her 'Dark Lord' and imprisoned him in her underground kingdom. Will George, in either his human form or as his Dreaming animal-self Dingo, be able to withstand Amelia's powers; will he survive the underground caverns; can he tear Wadawaka and himself from the violent but seductive power of the vampire woman? And who is the strange but familiar ghost woman accompanying the new colonial governor?
Underground is the 3rd in the Master of The Ghost Dreaming quartet, beautifully and insistently portrays the enduring reality of Aboriginal Dreaming in a fascinating story of initiation, maternal longing, and colonial violence.

Description:

It's 1988 and Germany is a country still at war with its own recent history.
Australian expat journalist Caroline James, sexually entranced by her German lover, goes to live with him near Stuttgart.
But Caroline soon misses the job and London life she gave up to be with Karl, and discovers the darker side of romance with an obsessive man.
It also doesn't take long to realise they have little in common beyond mutual sexual passion.
So why doesn't she leave?
Is there more to her decision to stay, than the lead on a potential news story?
A local woman accused of killing her own child seems to be the victim of simmering prejudices until Caroline's research unearths dark secrets from Germany's recent history.
Caroline's professional curiosity turns personal as every investigative step she takes drags her deeper into the horrors of the past.

Venom House

Description:

The Answerth family's mansion seems to deserve its nickname of Venom House - perhaps because of its forbidding setting, an island in the centre of a man-made lake, its treacherous waters studded by the skeletons of long-dead trees. Perhaps it's because of the unquiet ghosts of the Aboriginals slaughtered by the Answerth ancestors. Whatever the reason, most people are content to give Venom House and its occupants a wide berth... until a couple of corpses turn up in the lake...
 
The strength of Upfield's accomplishment in this book is so overwhelming it makes the reader cower. The characters are well-developed, the conversation vernacular for the Australian outback, and the development compelling. The story is the nearest Upfield comes to a story that would have made Edgar Allen Poe envious, Upfield maintains a kind of corpse-like humour which is very amusing... The whole book is first-class Upfield and first-class crime fiction. - from The Spirit of Australia by Ray Browne.

ETT Imprint

Description:

Millions of years in the making, sustaining human voyagers and societies for millennia, a couple of centuries of that by Europeans - the Great Barrier Reef - in maybe five or six decades the largest living structure visible from space will have become the largest dead one.
 
Vicarious Dreaming documents a series of personal voyages between Cooktown and the Torres Strait that are interwoven with accounts of exploration, exploitation and escape. The travels and tales coalesce around the works of Ion Idriess and the lives of solitary men at the edge of the world, drawn to the wild by folly and obsession, and to an island in the Howick Group that Idriess knew well and which was the site of his first book - Madman's Island. And as with the slow-motion ecological catastrophe that is the Reef's agonal decline there are players - and bystanders; stories of people and places, of life and death, of arrivals and departures, and of journeys that involve even the most remote, uninhabited spaces - the necklace of islands scattered along more than two thousand kilometres of Queensland's Coral Sea coast.
 
At once a journey into the far north of Australia and into the furthest depths of the human mind. A tale of Cape York's past and a new chapter in the exploration of its present. A dream narrative - maybe; a case study - perhaps; literary art, yes, absolutely, in its purest and most ambitious form. - Nicholas Rothwell
