Simon & Schuster Australia (simonschusteraustralia) | 29 comments Hey readers, happy spring! We're leaping into the warmer months with two gripping novels up for grabs.

The first heralds the return of Maja Lunde, the author of The History of Bees, with The End of the Ocean, a stunning cli-fi novel about water shortage seen through the eyes of a mother and father.

In 2019, seventy-year-old Signe sets out on a hazardous voyage to cross an entire ocean in only a sailboat. She is haunted by the loss of the love of her life, and is driven by a singular and all-consuming mission to make it back to him.

In 2041, David flees with his young daughter, Lou, from a war-torn Southern Europe plagued by drought. They have been separated from their rest of their family and are on a desperate search to reunite with them once again, when they find Signe’s abandoned sailboat in a parched French garden, miles away from the nearest shore. As David and Lou discover personal effects from Signe’s travels, their journey of survival and hope weaves together with Signe’s, forming a heartbreaking, inspiring story about the power of nature and the human spirit.


The second is The Siberian Dilemma, a gripping literary thriller from the revered author of crime classic Gorky Park featuring the iconic Arkady Renko - 'one of the most compelling figures in modern fiction' (USA Today) - as he travels deep into Siberia when a journalist vanishes.

Journalist Tatiana Petrovna has disappeared. Arkady Renko, Moscow investigator and Tatiana’s on-off lover, hasn’t seen her since she left on a case over a month ago. Tatiana is known to disappear during deep assignments – but he knows her enemies all too well and the criminal lengths they will go to keep her quiet. Given the opportunity to interrogate a suspected assassin in Irkutsk, Renko embarks on a dangerous journey to Siberia to find Tatiana. Renko discovers Siberia to be a land of shamans and brutally cold nights, oligarchs wealthy on northern oil and sea monsters that are said to prowl the deepest lake in the world. With these forces at work against him, Renko will need all his wits about him to get Tatiana out alive.
