Psychiatrist Natalie King is the expert witness in a vicious child custody battle, and the stakes are high. Getting it wrong means handing a child over to an abuser—or depriving that child of the only father she knows. Is Jenna gaming the system, or is her ex-husband Malik as dangerous as she suggests? How can Natalie best protect the child? And now that Natalie’s pregnant—and still unsure of the child’s paternity—how is a growing preoccupation with her own lost father affecting her judgment? Court dramas, cultural clashes and media backlash create an explosive mixture that forces Natalie to make life and death choices. How far will a parent go to keep—or save—their child? Anne Buist is the Chair of Women’s Mental Health at the University of Melbourne. She has over twenty-five years’ clinical and research experience in perinatal psychiatry, and works with protective services and the legal system in cases of abuse, kidnapping, infanticide and murder. Professor Buist is married to novelist Graeme Simsion and has two children. Her novels featuring forensic psychiatrist Natalie King are Medea’s Curse, Dangerous to Know and This I Would Kill For. ‘The strength of this crime novel by Professor Anne Buist, Chair of Women’s Mental Health at the University of Melbourne, lies in its exploration of the workings of the Family Court and its experts...This book should come with a warning: you may never be able to look at your own children’s drawings in the same way again.’ Age ‘Buist, chair of mental health at the University of Melbourne, is deeply versed in the institutional, legal and emotional implications of such a case. She has crafted a skilled and multi-layered procedural, one that is more about psychological than criminal matters, although their intersection is inevitable and crucial...Buist has given us a three-dimensional heroine and richly imagined scenes of conflict in public and private. Most of these disputes are managed within legal bounds. Buist’s insights into the enmities and frustrations of bodies bound to help children are sharp.’ Australian ‘Buist gives the reader a plot that is original and believable, with more than one twist to keep the reader guessing right up to a heart-stopping climax. Her expertise in the mental health field is apparent in every paragraph...Buist is certainly setting the bar high for her next literary foray: this one has to be her best yet.’ BookMooch ‘When psychiatrist Natalie King is asked to be an expert witness in a custody battle between Jenna and Malik for their daughter Chelsea, it’s the kind of low-key thing she’s interested in now that she’s pregnant...Anne Buist, Chair of Women’s Mental Health at the University of Melbourne, lays bare the emotional carnage of these battles in this harrowing thriller.’ Readings ‘Forensic psychiatrist Natalie King is not your average heroine nor is Medea’s Curse a predictable by-the-numbers thriller...An intelligent, thought-provoking tale.’ Courier Mail on Medea’s Curse ‘Buist brings her considerable experience as a perinatal psychiatrist to bear in this novel, giving it authenticity and gravitas.’ Daily Telegraph on Medea’s Curse ‘An intelligent thriller.’ Who Weekly on Medea’s Curse ‘A harrowing and thrilling read, this mystery will keep you on the edge of your seat.’ Buzzfeed, Best Australian Books of 2015 on Medea’s Curse

A newlywed couple has a murderous celebration the day after their wedding in this classic true-crime thriller by New York Times bestselling journalist M. William Phelps. “Phelps is the Harlan Coben of real-life thrillers.” —Allison Brennan A deadly obsession leads to a deadly wedding gift… On a hot Florida night in 2003, aspiring model Sandee Rozzo drove into her garage after a long shift at a local bar. Waiting in the shadows was a killer who fired eight bullets point-blank into her chest. The police immediately suspected Timothy Alvin “Tracey” Humphrey, the ex she had recently agreed to testify against for imprisoning and raping her. But Tracey wasn’t just a bodybuilder who knew how to shape his body. He was a cold-blooded psychopath who could manipulate 19-year-old Ashley Laney into falling in love with him. On their wedding night, he made a strange request—one that would end in a tragic and brutal murder. The police knew Humphrey was the likely suspect, but he had an alibi for the time of the shooting. How could they prove that, even if he didn’t pull the trigger, he was the psychopath behind Sandee’s murder? It would all come down to a bold prison escape, a manhunt for a killer, and an explosive trial . . . INCLUDES 16 PAGES OF SHOCKING PHOTOS “Phelps gets into the blood and guts of the story” —Gregg Olsen “Master of true crime.” —Real Crime magazine “Anything by Phelps is an eye-opening experience.” —Suspense Magazine “Phelps is one of America’s finest true-crime authors.” —Vincent Bugliosi “Phelps knows how to work it.” —Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
