Melina Marchetta's gripping new novel Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil is a cracking fusion of suspense and heart-rending drama. Chief Inspector Bish Ortley of the London Met, divorced and still grieving the death of his son, has been drowning his anger in Scotch. Something has to give, and he's no sooner suspended from the force than a busload of British students is subject to a deadly bomb attack across the Channel. Bish's daughter is one of those on board. Also on the bus is Violette LeBrac. Raised in Australia, Violette has a troubled background. Thirteen years ago her grandfather bombed a London supermarket, killing dozens of people. Her mother, Noor, is serving a life sentence in connection with the incident. But before Violette's part in the French tragedy can be established she disappears. Bish, who was involved in Noor LeBrac's arrest, is now compelled to question everything that happened back then. And the more he delves into the lives of the family he helped put away, the more he realises that truth wears many colours. With its cast of unforgettable characters, social insight and wry wit, Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil is an irresistible novel about human identity, lost children and the nature of real love. 'The complex, fast-moving plot, Marchetta's vivid evocation of her characters, and her perfect ear for dialogue are seductive . . . An immersive reading experience.' Australian Book Review 'Marchetta . . . seems to have inside knowledge of the mysterious processes of the teenage brain. A busload of quarrelsome, immature adolescents doesn't daunt her in the least . . . all stand out as individuals.' Marilyn Stasio, New York Times 'A novel of great scope, of past and present, and above all, the Marchetta trademark of a fierce and loving heart.' Marcus Zusak 'Emotionally complex characters complement an intricate plot rife with dizzying twists and devastating reveals. This visceral read manages to capture the emotional aftermath of a mass tragedy while sustaining tension and delivering a scathing indictment of racial profiling, vigilante justice, and the 24-hour news cycle.' Publishers Weekly 'This is a cracking read that's also timely and intelligent . . . Everything works together in this book . . . It's a big, juicy story filled with many characters and Marchetta is a master storyteller. On occasion, even cynical reviewers stay up long past bedtime, nodding and turning pages. Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil deserves to be on the bedside table of every crime fan.' The Saturday Paper 'An electrifying contemporary detective thriller.' Fiona Hardy, Books & Publishing 'Marchetta is a wonderful storyteller, with every interaction important, thrilling, enjoyable, or all of the above, and every character gifted with such an honest, gloriously vivid life of their own that reading the whole thing in a searing rush of pages in one sitting is irresistible.' Readings Monthly 'A stunning marriage of global anguish and personal pain . . . often heartbreaking, sometimes heart-stopping, and definitely unforgettable.' Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street 'Heart-pounding (and heartbreaking) . . . Tell the Truth, Shame the Devil grabbed me by the throat and didn't let go until I'd read the last word - and shed the last tear.' Gayle Forman, author of If I Stay and Leave Me 'A good, long, engrossing leisure read is assured.' Weekend Australian 'This fast-paced novel has a great balance of humanity, thriller and hidden pasts.' Manly Daily '[A] slick combination of crime thriller and family drama . . . The vibrant characters leap from the pages as Marchetta builds up the suspense to a superb crescendo.' Women's Weekly

An explosive, headline-making portrait of Allen Dulles, the man who transformed the CIA into the most powerful—and secretive—colossus in Washington, from the founder of Salon.com and author of the New York Times bestseller Brothers. America’s greatest untold story: the United States’ rise to world dominance under the guile of Allen Welsh Dulles, the longest-serving director of the CIA. Drawing on revelatory new materials—including newly discovered U.S. government documents, U.S. and European intelligence sources, the personal correspondence and journals of Allen Dulles’s wife and mistress, and exclusive interviews with the children of prominent CIA officials—Talbot reveals the underside of one of America’s most powerful and influential figures. Dulles’s decade as the director of the CIA—which he used to further his public and private agendas—were dark times in American politics. Calling himself “the secretary of state of unfriendly countries,” Dulles saw himself as above the elected law, manipulating and subverting American presidents in the pursuit of his personal interests and those of the wealthy elite he counted as his friends and clients—colluding with Nazi-controlled cartels, German war criminals, and Mafiosi in the process. Targeting foreign leaders for assassination and overthrowing nationalist governments not in line with his political aims, Dulles employed those same tactics to further his goals at home, Talbot charges, offering shocking new evidence in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. An exposé of American power that is as disturbing as it is timely, The Devil’s Chessboard is a provocative and gripping story of the rise of the national security state—and the battle for America’s soul.

Charlie was sick and tired of cooking at his Uncle Sam's diner because all Sam had on the menu was the same bland stuff that had been cooked over twenty years. Charlie knew he could do better than his uncle ever could. Charlie decided he had enough money saved up to open his own little diner in town. The following morning he was going to tell his Uncle Sam today would be his last day to work at the diner. Charlie broke the news to his Uncle Sam but Sam was hurt that Charlie wanted to leave the family business. Sam said "Charlie, why do you want to leave? Haven't we paid you well and gave you all the free meals and a nice place to stay." Charlie answered "Please don't make this difficult for us both. I'm not happy here anymore. I just feel that it's time for me to move on besides I'm a man now and I need to take care of my own self and start my own diner. I hope you understand Uncle." Sam replied "Yes, I do understand I just wanted to believe you would just work here the rest of your life like I have, but sometimes leaving the family business is for the best. When you open your new diner, Charlie could I please come by and see what wonderful things you have done." "Sure, Uncle Sam, you'll be the first person I call. Now Uncle come over and give me a big hug, wish me luck." “Ok, Charlie! You take good care of yourself and don't forget to call me when the diner is finished, said Uncle Sam." "Don't worry Uncle Sam you'll love my new diner. Now tell everyone it's been a pleasure working here. Now I've got to get to the bank and take out a small loan to cover some of the construction costs for the new diner, said Charlie." "Charlie, why don't you let me give you the money you need to cover the remaining construction costs, said uncle Sam." "No, I appreciate your kindness but I need to do this all alone just like you did when you started your diner, said Charlie." "Well alright, we'll be talking soon Charlie, said Uncle Sam. Charlie's diner was up and running ready to give his Uncle Sam's diner a run for their money. In reality Charlie's was a flop compared to his Uncle Sam's diner, but that was to be expected since Uncle's diner had been there for over twenty years now. Charlie was working longer hours than he expected to make a profit. Charlie started getting depressed and drinking more than he should. Then one night when all of his customers were gone, Charlie sat down at one of the tables eating a ham sandwich because that's all he could afford since his diner was losing so much money. Charlie could barely pay his rent on time and there was no extra money to spend on himself. Charlie went back in the kitchen to make a fresh batch of chili for the next day since that was one of his best dishes but that wasn't saying much. As Charlie was stirring his chili, he paused for a moment thinking as hard as he could to think of some way to drum up more business and bring Uncle Sam's diner customers to his place instead. Then entered a man dressed in a black trench coat with a black hat and dark glasses. Charlie said to the stranger "can't you see the place is closed for the night." The stranger responded "that's not why I'm here. I am here because I want to make a deal with you." Charlie said "Is this some kind of a joke or something." "This is no joke said the stranger." "Ok, what kind of a deal could you possibly want to make with me because I'm not selling the diner. I just need a way to bring in more customers that's all, said Charlie." "If you will just be quiet for a moment I'll tell you what I'm offering. Number one I don't want to buy you out. What I have to offer you will bring in more customers than you could dream about said the stranger."
