The Bachelors of Broken Hill - Arthur Upfield

When two elderly bachelors were poisoned with cyanide, a strange woman was on the scene each time - but now she has disappeared, leaving no trace. Tracking her down in a town of twenty-eight thousand people is a job to tax even Detective Inspector Bonaparte's powers.

Bony and the Black Virgin - Arthur Upfield

Inspector Napolean Bonaparte, the half-aborigine detective, arrives in the drought-stricken outback of New South Wales, where at Lake Jane, the desolate sheep station belonging to Old Man Downer and his son Eric, two men have been savagely beaten to death. 

Clues are difficult to unearth in this vast, sandblown country, but Bony's understanding of the bush and the people who live there - both black and white - leads him patiently and inexorably towards a solution of this deceptively simple crime. 

It is strange solution, and even Bony is horrified at the tragic outcome of his investigations.

The Mystery of Swordfish Reef - Arthur Upfield

One calm October day three men set out from Bermagui harbour in a fishing launch and disappeared into the rippleless Tasman sea. 
Then the head of one of them, riddled with bullets, is brought up in a ship's trawl - it belonged to Ericson, formerly one of the Big Five at Scotland. 
Why had he been shot and thrown overboard? Who had killed him? And where were the launchman and his mate?
The bush had never defeated Bony but there were no clues in the sepulchre of the sea...

Bony and the White Savage - Arthur Upfield

 

By a lonely roadside in the south-west corner of Western Australia, old timer Karl Mueller is roused from his drink-sodden sleep by approaching footsteps and the sound of whistling. What he sees on waking (or thinks he sees) is enough to make him stiffen with fear, and more than enough to worry the police into calling for Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte.

The disturber of Mueller's rest is Marvin Rhudder - once an upstanding theological student, now a convicted rapist and basher, a bloody savage whose recapture will put all of Bony's sleuthing and tracking skills to the test.

Death of a Swagman - Arthur Upfield

 

In an isolate hut bot far from the sleepy country town of Merino, stockman George Kendall is found dead - and it looks very much like murder.

Six weeks later, when the murderer is still at large, another stockman turns up in the township and, as a first move, provokes the local sergeant to lock him up. 

This particular stockman is Detective-Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte, and there's method in his seeming madness. While serving a semi-detention sentence and being made to paint the police station, he wears the best of all possible disguises for a policeman on the trail of a ruthless and single-minded killer.

The Casual Vacancy - J.K. Rowling

When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early forties, the town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war.

Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils... Pagford is not what it first seems.

And the empty seat left by Barry on the Parish Council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?

Seven Ancient Wonders - Matthew Reilly

IT IS THE BIGGEST TREASURE HUNT IN HISTORY

Nearly every nation is involved. A headlong race to locate the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

THE CAPSTONE

A magnificent golden capstone once sat atop the Great Pyramid at Giza. It was a source of immense power, capable of bestowing upon its holder absolute global rule for a thousand years... 

But then, in 323 BC, the capstone was broken into seven pieces and hidden within the greatest structures of the age: monuments that would become known as the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World.

Now, with the coming of a rare solar event, the time has come to locate the pieces and rebuild the capstone.

AN EPIC QUEST

Everyone wants it. From the most powerful countries on earth, to gangs of murderous terrorists... and one daring coalition of eight small nations who think no single country should possess such an awesome power source.

And so, led by the mysterious Captain Jack West Jr, this determined group enters the fray, a global battlefield filled with viciously bobby-trapped mines, stupendous Ancient Wonders, merciless evil forces, and an adventure beyond imagining.
