Chanel Munro has landed her dream job as a junior resident doctor at the prestigious Sydney Harbour Hospital. Only two years out from medical school, she can’t believe she’s been chosen by the highly respected Doctor Leo Baker to be part of his elite team. 

But an esteemed position on Doctor Baker’s team doesn’t come without sacrifice. It soon becomes clear her boss expects her to provide him with certain favors and he’s not talking about volunteering for the coffee run. 

Scared, angry and confused, Chanel is at a loss what to do. She refuses to give in to blackmail, but if she takes her complaint to the medical board and they don’t believe her, her career will be in ruins. The years of study and sacrifice will be for nothing. Vowing to steer clear of him until she can come up with a viable plan, she keeps a low profile and puts all of her energies into the job that she loves.

But patients are dying strange and unpredictable deaths under Doctor Baker’s care and she can’t help but wonder why. It’s ludicrous to suggest he’s at fault. Notwithstanding his personal failings, he’s an exceptional doctor. As the death toll continues to climb, Chanel takes her concerns to the police.

Detective Sergeant Bryce Sutcliffe of the City of Sydney Police Station is sceptical of Chanel’s claims. Despite the fact he’s drawn to her earthly beauty, he can’t help but wonder if there isn’t more behind her complaint.  When the wife of a New South Wales senator dies under Doctor Baker’s care, Bryce is forced to pay attention.

Could the girl with the compelling eyes have been telling the truth? Could the Sydney Harbour Hospital’s most highly respected doctor be a murderer?

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.

But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable.

Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows.

Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.

From bestselling author B. A. Paris comes the gripping thriller and international phenomenon Behind Closed Doors.

 

Trey Walker is living the high life. A successful advertising executive at the impressive Baker & Saddler advertising firm, he’s dangerously good looking, drives a vintage red Mustang and has his pick of women. Life couldn’t get any sweeter. Then Trey receives an urgent call from his identical twin brother and in an instant, his life changes…

 

Wade Walker’s life has never been easy. He might have been born with looks to die for, but so far things haven’t worked out. In and out of dead end jobs, Wade is resentful of his brother’s success. Even so, he’s always been able to rely on Trey and the night of Saturday, September fifth is no different. Only this time, things don’t quite go as planned. A woman has been raped and the police are asking a whole bunch of difficult questions. Trey is taken away in handcuffs…

 

Kiesha Munro has a reputation at the prestigious Sydney Legal law firm for being their best defense attorney, but her rise to the top has been far from easy. She’s an aboriginal woman working in a white male-dominated world and even in the twenty-first century, it’s taken a whole lot of hard work, courage and determination to get there. When Trey seeks her out to represent him against rape charges, she’s initially reluctant to take him on.

 

But then she hears Trey’s story and she’s convinced he’s been wrongly accused. She’s determined to do all she can to prove his innocence and at the same time, protect her heart. With killer looks and a body that would get any woman’s pulse racing, Trey Walker is dangerous, but not in the way the police think. Of that she has no doubt…

MOC SILNA W CHRISIE TAYLORZE I W KSIĄŻCE TEJ JEST!

W 1973 roku George Lucas nabazgrał w swoim notatniku pierwsze zdania o walce galaktycznego Imperium z rebeliantami. Cztery dekady i ponad 40 miliardów dolarów później gadżetów związanych z uniwersum Gwiezdnych Wojen było więcej niż mieszkańców Ziemi, a wiara rycerzy Jedi stała się oficjalnie uznawaną religią.

Dzieło Lucasa wyrwało się z ram kina. Dziś jest jedną z najbardziej lukratywnych i wpływowych marek. Kompletna historia fenomenu Gwiezdnych Wojen nie została jednak nigdy opowiedziana. Aż do dziś. Trzymasz ją w ręku.

Chris Taylor – dziennikarz tygodnika „Time” i redaktor portalu Mashable – podąża śladami gwiezdnej sagi: od jej trudnych narodzin, poprzez burzliwe losy marki, aż po kontrowersje wokół najnowszego filmu. Dociera do ludzi, którzy pomogli przekuć pomysł Lucasa w legendę. Spotyka fanów i ludzi od marketingu, dla których Gwiezdne Wojny stały się sposobem na życie. Stacza walki ze współczesnymi rycerzami Jedi i majsterkuje z konstruktorami droidów.

Taylor szuka odpowiedzi na pytania, jak to się stało, że Gwiezdne Wojny przyciągnęły i zainspirowały miliony, i dlaczego będą rozpalać naszą wyobraźnię i zarabiać gigantyczne pieniądze przez kolejne pokolenia.


„Nie sposób wyobrazić sobie fana Gwiezdnych Wojen, który nie pokocha tej książki...” — Booklist

„Niezwykle zabawna opowieść. Taylor śledzi fenomen Gwiezdnych Wojen od narodzin pomysłu do szczytu popularności i mówi nam: «Spójrz tylko, jakie to ogromne!»” — Simon Pegg, aktor i fan GW


 Ben Fitzgerald knows all about battling demons. He was an alcoholic at the age of seventeen…

Through sheer hard work and determination, he’s managed to put his past behind him and is now a successful lawyer at Sydney Legal. The law firm has an enviable reputation and Ben prides himself for being willing to fight for people the world has given up on. When he discovers nursing students are graduating from Richmond University without the ability to properly read English, he doesn’t think twice about taking action, despite the enormity of the claim.

When Ben runs into an old flame who is now employed at his law firm, his world is turned on its end. Ben hasn’t seen Abby Brown since they were teenagers. She’s one of the few people who know about his past. They were young lovers with a dependence upon drugs and alcohol, living on the streets.

Concerned she might reveal his secret and struggling with an attraction to Abby he doesn’t seem able to control, Ben is determined to avoid her at all costs. He’s worked hard to secure his comfortable position at Sydney Legal. He refuses to allow anyone to jeopardize it.

In an effort to distract himself, Ben files a lawsuit against Richmond University. As far as he’s concerned, the college bigwigs are failing in their duty of care – to their nursing students who have paid handsomely for the privilege of their degree and to the patients who will ultimately receive their attention. An error made while reading a medication chart could prove fatal – in fact, it already has.

Then Ben discovers Abby’s brother is the head of the nursing department at Richmond University. Jeff Brown is directly in the path of Ben’s missile. Will he listen to Abby’s pleas for mercy on behalf of her brother, or will Ben do what he must and destroy the man’s career?

Will Abby ever forgive him if he does? Will he forgive himself if he doesn’t…?
