New series from the Amazon Bestselling author Willow Rose. Ben is supposed to be in school. It's Monday morning but his parents are still asleep after a night of heavy drinking. Ben Waits patiently, even though he knows he is missing out on today's field trip to the zoo. But, when his black Labrador suddenly runs upstairs and comes down with a finger in his mouth, Ben knows he's not making it to school today at all. Detective Jack Ryder is chaperoning his kids' field trip when he gets the call from the head of the Cocoa Beach Police Department. A body has been found and they need his help. Soon, Jack finds himself up against a killer, a predator who ruthlessly chases women and kills them so they can never leave him. The case soon causes serious consequences for him and his family once the truth is revealed. With her new hero, Jack Ryder, as a loving father and committed detective, a new location in tropical Florida, and a story that moves at an incredible pace, Hit the Road Jack is Willow Rose at the top of her game.

Newcastle is the second city of New South Wales, 200 km north of Sydney. This book records service stories of men from Newcastle: three generations from the one family.
The stories depict service in the Royal Australian Navy and Air Force, the Australian Army and the Australian Merchant Navy and demonstrate considerable diversity; from front-line fighters to cooks and aircraft mechanics.
Notable facts of these men from Newcastle:
Three served on the Western Front in the Great War.
William ‘Willy’ Thompson was at the tragic Great War battle of Fromelles and also at the magnificent feat at Amiens – Germany’s ‘Black Day’.
Robert Hughes was killed in the Great War at that most poignant of places – Hill 60.
George Anderson survived the sinking of the first merchant ship by Japanese submarines off the south-east coast of Australia in 1942.
Three crossed paths with the Japanese submarine I-21.
Arthur ‘Dukesy’ Forbes witnessed the sinking of SS Iron Knight and the loss of 36 merchant seamen, many from Newcastle.
Robert ‘Bobby’ Forbes served on HMAS Australia, the Royal Australian Navy’s premier warship in World War II.
Two were Called-up for National Service: one in the 1950s the other in the 1960s.
These are great stories about service life – at war and at home – that also tell the story of the contribution to Australia's military history of an extended family of Novocastrians.
