Turning his passion for philosophy into a career was meant to be a defining moment for Julian. At a young age, he’d become a lecturer at a prestigious university.

But Julian’s life hasn’t worked out as planned, and soon he finds that the only reprieve from his humdrum existence is the intellectual debating that takes place in his lectures.

When Julian receives a mysterious email that promises change — something he has long desired — he finds the offer impossible to refuse. All he has to do is play The Game and play it by its rules.

Julian quickly learns that when the rules of The Game are broken, penalties apply. People around him are murdered and his own life is thrown into jeopardy.

He discovers that a secret organisation, The Philosophers’ Society, is behind it all. They’re experimenting with people’s lives and they’re after something powerful. Thrown together with one of his students, the alluring Isabella, Julian finds an unlikely ally in the deadly game.

Together they find themselves on the run from The Philosophers’ Society and its sadistic killer Isaiah.

Aazim is a young IT specialist working for a financial company in the heart of Melbourne.A new job and a new life seem to have finally put him back on track after a tragedy devastated his family six months before, but soon after starting his new job he finds himself taking risks to investigate the strange events he has witnessed. The information he uncovers is shocking.

Knowing it could have global repercussions for the financial market, Aazim is faced with a dilemma: Does he ignore what he’s seen and keep his head down?

Or does he try to stop the catastrophic events unfolding, even if it means stealing the data from the very organisation that hired him to protect it?

Aazim is scared. He knows that if he goes ahead there’ll be no turning back, and he’ll be risking his own life, and his father’s. He steals the data and runs.

Thrown into the mix is William McKane, an ex-ASIO agent turned private investigator who lives from moment to moment in a chaos of mounting debt and alcohol-fuelled days. He is hired to track down Aazim and recover the stolen data, but Bill knows an opportunity when he sees one and he’s a man who trusts his instincts.

Fast moving, compelling and charged with tension and unexpected twists, The Brotherhood peers deep into the world of Islamic fundamentalism, cyber fraud and Australia’s response to the threat of terrorism.

Engaging with issues of contemporary relevance, it is very much a novel of our times.

Dave and Linda have it all: a home, stable careers, and a loving marriage. All this is destroyed when Linda is taken from Dave by a devastating illness.

Dave spends the next three years of his life in a fog of depression. One day, he’s inspired to quit his mundane job and see what else life has to offer—so he books a one-way ticket to Hong Kong. Why?

He doesn’t know nor does he care, and adventure begins. Dave enters a glamorous world of nonstop parties and beautiful people, and is taken by one person in particular: the gorgeous American, Diana.

Her intriguing tattoo says ‘Chasing Life’ in Hebrew script, and after meeting her Dave decides to do just that. His chase takes him from the neon-lit chaotic streets of Hong Kong to the tranquil banks of the Seine in Paris.

Along the way, he learns the true meaning of ‘chasing life’.
