Available Now. Book Description: Samuel 'Sailor' Doyle has transferred from Vice to Homicide in the Virginia State Police. He has a mistress, an alcohol problem, a prescription drug dependency, and a burgeoning self-loathing that alienates his wife and family.: On Friday 3 July, the rookie investigator is assigned to a double homicide on a rural farm some 15 miles outside Richmond. One of the victims has been interred in a makeshift tomb, while the other is stuck half-in, half-out of a hope chest overflowing with cat litter. And the farm is covered with dead bodies: dozens of cats, sheep, goats, cows, and one dead horse. The mentally handicapped daughter of the victims, Carl and Claire Bruckner, is missing.: Doyle soon discovers that Bruckner was a Marine captain who lost his leg in Vietnam thanks to the incompetence of his commanding officer, Lieutenant Colonel Robert Lake - now retired General Robert Lake, and Republican Party presidential hopeful, who will be speaking in Richmond on July fourth - the following evening. What Doyle fails to realise as he follows the various clues is that wherever he goes, he is spreading disease - and not just any disease, but Yersinia pestis. The plague.: Is the dead Marine planning revenge, even from beyond the grave? : Review: ""An ingenious mix of American Gothic horror story and forensic investigation, with plot undertones of terrorism and weapons of mass destruction or at least the fear of them, which rattles along at a great pace.

Available Now. Book Description: Now a major TV series: Quirke starring Gabriel Byrne.: When newspaper magnate Richard Jewell is found dead at his country estate, clutching a shotgun in his lifeless hands, few see his demise as cause for sorrow. But before long Doctor Quirke and Inspector Hackett realise that, rather than the suspected suicide, 'Diamond Dick' has in fact been murdered.: Suspicion soon falls on one of Jewell's biggest rivals. But as Quirke and his assistant Sinclair get to know Jewell's beautiful, enigmatic wife Fran¨oise d'Aubigny, and his fragile sister Dannie, as well as those who work for the family, it gradually becomes clear that all is not as it seems . . .: Against the backdrop of 1950's Dublin, Benjamin Black conjures another atmospheric, beguiling mystery. : Amazon Review: The literary novelist John Banville (who writes his crime fiction under the alliterative moniker 'Benjamin Black') has built up a faithful following for his idiosyncratic historical outings (set in the 1950s) featuring his pathologist anti-hero Quirke. It's not difficult to see why. Just a couple of chapters of the new novel, A Death in Summer, is an object lesson in Banville/Black's highly individual skills; he is a writer whose grasp of period and locale is second to none.: The brutal death of newspaper tycoon Richard Jewell at his country property (the shotgun that killed him clutched in his dead hands) is not the suicide it initially appeared to be, and has propelled Quirke into the search for a ruthless murderer. The dead man's enemies are legion, and the immediate suspect is one of his most powerful rivals, but as Quirke, his assistant Sinclair and his colleague Inspector Hackett realise, there is a complex mystery behind the death. And just what is the involvement of the dead man's mysterious wife, the seductive Fran¨oise d'Aubigny?: As we are reminded here, Quirke himself is the author's ace-in-the-hole: badly coordinated, prone to drink and constantly dealing with his own demons, he's a highly individual protagonist in the over-crowded crime fiction field. Similarly, the Dublin which is the setting here is conjured with the customary skill, while the details of life in fifties Ireland are presented with acute precision, both these elements making up for the over-familiar plot revelations. A Death in Summer is as engrossing a piece of writing as anything in the current historical crime field; readers will be happy to visit vintage Dublin in the company of the badly-dressed but brilliant Quirke. --Barry Forshaw --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. : Review: 'A writer whose use of English can create an almost sensuous frisson.' --Independent Viewspaper: 'With Quirke, he has made a fascinating addition to the ranks of the defective detective in books that combine respectful reading of the genre with brightly original writing.' --Guardian Review : 'The horror at the heart of this bleak, brutal novel pierces deep into the soul of Ireland.': --Metro : 'Another sophisticated slice of Irish noir' --Irish Times: 'Black/Banville's prose has a radiant sorrowful clarity . . . However the great strength of the Quirke novels - their poetic expansiveness - remains, as the horror at the heart of this bleak, brutal novel pierces deep into the soul of Ireland' --Metro: 'Just a few pages of the latest outing (featuring his pathologist protagonist, Quirke) demonstrate just what a stylist he is; a writer whose use of English can create an almost sensuous frisson . . . the Dublin here has a richness reminiscent of the city's greatest chronicler, Joyce, while the 1950s are evoked with pinpoint precision. Raymond Chandler, too, spent little time on his plots; his genius was to reinvent the tropes of detective fiction so consummately that readers barely noticed the rickety narrative structure . . . a highly professional and engaging piece of work' --Independent: 'A detective novel has an emotionally insecure life insurance risk at its centre: the challenge is what can be achieved, linguistically and psychologically, around these fixed points. The answer, in the Quirke series, is a great deal . . . But the main point of Black, as it is with Banville, is the work the words do . . . his sentences are a regular pleasure . . . There are also frequent taut metaphors in the Chandler/Fleming style . . . with Quirke, he has made a fascinating addition to the ranks of the defective detective in books that combine respectful reading of the genre with brightly original writing' --Guardian: 'A swift, hopscotching murder mystery . . . A beach read for the brainy': --LA Times: 'My new favourite is "A Death in Summer." It is a quick read, building in intensity like the heat of a July day before tapering off to a cooler twilight of revelation and reconciliation. If it's mysteries you crave, and if shimmering sentences refresh you even more reliably than would a two-week vacation at the shore, then Quirke -- mournful, shambling, guilt-ridden, whiskey-soaked and irresistible -- is just the ticket': --Chicago Tribune: `It is, in essence, a timeless story of how flawed personalities can make efforts towards the greater good, while others spread a toxic and debilitating evil...It is all beautifully done...the Dublin characters are achingly authentic...Banville's lightness of touch merely emphasizes the darkness at the heart of A Death in Summer...[he] may be dabbling with another oeuvre...but he has retained his ability to captivate, intrigue and provoke.' --The Glasgow Herald : `The fourth in this wonderfully gloomy series centered on the Dublin pathologist Quirke...does not disappoint.' --Daily Mail : `In these dark days, it's a relief to go back in time to Dublin in the Fifties for my book of the year. This is the setting of the wonderfully evocative crime series by Benjamin Black (aka John Banville) featuring the excellent, sharp-tongued pathologist, Quirke, who has a sixth sense when things don't quite add up.' --Carla McKay, Daily Mail --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Facing death daily and far from his friends and family, Adam finds himself drawn to a maverick Irish soldier called Gerry Cunningham.: 'You're out of luck, brother,' are the first words Gerry says when they meet in the crush of men competing for the few women at a dance in a seaside hotel, but when Gerry betrays his lover Moira, Adam's fortunes seem to have changed. For the next four years, Adam's life and Gerry's are intertwined like good luck and bad, love and loss, life and death, their paths crossing at various points on Adam's perilous journey from the ruins of Poland to the rolling English countryside, from Egypt to Occupied France.: A hauntingly evocative picture of wartime Britain, a twisting drama of fighting behind enemy lines, a compelling, suspenseful love story, A GOOD WAR proves Patrick Bishop - already acclaimed as a great historian of the war in the air - to be a superbly gifted novelist. : Review: A measured, lyrical novel of remarkable scope and poise, A GOOD WAR is also replete with the realism and authenticity that are the author's hallmark...wonderfully evocative...A GOOD WAR confirms Patrick Bishop as a writer of fiction who has come of age (Damien Lewis, bestselling author of Cobra Gold): Superbly written and authoritative (Observer on Bomber Boys): One of the most profoundly moving books about the war to have emerged in recent memory (Sunday Telegraph on Bomber Boys): As one of the bravest and best war correspondents alive, Bishop has an instinctive sympathy for his subject (Standard on Bomber Boys): A terrific book, so riveting, exciting and moving...a true memorial (Spectator on Bomber Boys): Bishop writes an exciting aerial dogfight, rich in the telling detail that makes for authenticity. Yet this is a good deal more than a bloke's yarn, with well-drawn, convincing characters and plenty of what the movie-makers used to call love interest, too. One for the beach - but probably not for the plane there. (Daily Mail): Patrick Bishop turns novelist in this beautifully crafted love story. In its evocation of time and place it rings true at every turn.

Financial institutions across the world have collapsed, and most governments are now in debt to The Bank, a company created by the world's wealthiest men.: But Detective Inspector Cass Jones has enough on his plate without worrying about the world at large. His marriage is crumbling, he's haunted by the deeds of his past, and he's got the high-profile shooting of two schoolboys to solve - not to mention tracking down a serial killer who calls himself the Man of Flies. : Then Cass Jones' personal world is thrown into disarray when his brother shoots his own wife and child before committing suicide - leaving Cass implicated in their deaths. And when he starts seeing silent visions of his dead brother, it's time for the suspended DI to go on the hunt himself - only to discover that all three cases are linked . . . : As Jones is forced to examine his own family history, three questions keep reappearing: what disturbed his brother so badly in his final few weeks? Who are the shadowy people behind The Bank? And, most importantly, what do they want with DI Cass Jones? : Review: A gnarly, involving and atmospheric mystery that explores some very dark territory. It's uncomfortably timely, exceptionally well-written and shows that whatever genre she's working in, Pinborough is yet another author who's well worth keeping an eye on." (SFX Saxon Bullock): Crime-horror set in an all-too-credible near future. (Anthony Brown TOTAL SCI FI): A Matter of Blood is a cracking read, never less than thoroughly entertaining and genuinely creepy. (BOOK CHICK CITY): This is a realistic (sadly) and engrossing mystery, set in a future that's close enough to touch. A highly recommended new release, and an author to watch. (PORNOKITSCH): The book really is enjoyable, and the conclusion is both satisfying and a great teaser for the next volume in the trilogy. With some excellent ideas running through it, A Matter of Blood is definitely worth checking out for fans of both horror and crime fiction, and those who just enjoy a great story. (KAMVISION): "A Matter of Blood is one of the more successful blends of police procedural, horror and fantasy I've encountered, with an engaging and damaged main character I'd be pleased to follow further. If there's any justice [this] will be her breakout book. (LOCUS) : Book Description: On the hunt for a serial killer, vengeful DI Cass Jones uncovers a dark supernatural conspiracy!

Available Now. Book Description: Ten years ago, journalist Ben Webster had his investigation into a corrupt Russian business in Kazakhstan crushed, the cost of his scrutiny a terrible tragedy . . .: Now employed by a private London intelligence agency, Webster's interest is piqued when a client asks him to expose the dealings of shadowy Russian oligarch Konstantin Malin. Before long Webster finds himself fixated by Malin and by his front man Richard Lock. But how far is he willing to risk the wellbeing of his family? And that of Lock himself?: Meanwhile Lock finds himself under pressure to explain to the world how he - a simple lawyer - came to be one of Russia's largest investors. And when one of Malin's former prot?g?es is found dead after meeting with Webster, Lock begins to realise that he too may be at risk. Desperate to seek a haven with the wife he lost years before, Lock realises that he must now take action - but his options are fast running out . . .: Against a background of Moscow, London and Berlin a journey of impossible decisions begins . . . : Review: 'The best debut spy adventure I've read in a long time. The two main characters ― a British investigator with a private intelligence agency and the key manipulator of a corrupt Russian oligarch's finances ― are vigorously portrayed, with satisfying twists and intrigues' The Times : 'Chris Morgan Jones's debut arrives with a weight of expectations on its shoulders. But it's clear right from the chilling, detached opening that these are going to be met . . . Like the icy eastern winter that seeps through the pages of his novel, Morgan Jones's prose is clean and cold, crisp and ominous . . . this is a world Morgan Jones knows, and it shows. In its intelligence, its crispness, its refusal to recognise anything other than shades of grey, there are undoubtedly resonances of Le Carr? here. But An Agent of Deceit is too good to need the publishing shorthand for "classy thriller": this is a debut that definitely stands on its own merits' Observer: 'So-called "new Le Carr?s" are 10 a penny, but Morgan Jones has a better claim to the title than most, having worked for 11 years at the world's largest business intelligence agency. On one level this intelligent, sophisticated spy thriller is about money laundering. But it's also about the willed innocence that makes such activities possible - the difference between not knowing and choosing not to know . . . dapper prose and stately pacing . . . Genuinely scary' Guardian: 'A well-paced, plausible thriller that brings a wealth of experience of corrupt modern business and flits between the City of London, the Cayman Islands, Moscow and Berlin faster than a liquidity crisis' The Times: 'Morgan Jones weaves an engaging narrative that, through Lock particularly, confronts the dilemma of the west's engagement with dubious characters and companies - and not just those from the former Soviet Union. It is an issue with which many institutions have been grappling lately in places such as Libya . . . An Agent of Deceit is a worthy entry to the long line of spy yarns, and a reminder of how little we still know of wealth and power in Russia, for all the public visibility of the 21st-century oligarchs' Financial Times: 'Brimful of insider knowledge, this debut novel heads into the world of corrupt Russian business dealings . . . an elegant, tense thriller' Grazia: 'Elegant, deep and powerful. An Agent of Deceit is a thinking man's thriller that reminded me of John Le Carre's classic spy novels - but set in a chilling contemporary world in which spies have gone private and corporations are more powerful than governments. A remarkably assured debut' Joe Finder, author of Buried Secrets and Paranoia: 'Accomplished and believable' Sunday Times : Book Description: A powerful man with a deadly secret.

Available Now. Film Tie In (Robert Langdon) Paperback Book Description: When a world renowned scientist is found brutally murdered in a Swiss research facility, a Harvard professor, Robert Langdon, is summoned to identify the mysterious symbol seared onto the dead man's chest. His baffling conclusion: that it is the work of the Illuminati, a secret brotherhood presumed extinct for nearly four hundred years - reborn to continue their bitter vendetta against their most hated enemy, the Catholic church.: In Rome, the college of cardinals assembles to elect a new pope. Yet somewhere within the walls of the Vatican, an unstoppable bomb of terrifying power relentlessly counts down to oblivion. While the minutes tick away, Langdon joins forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and mysterious Italian scientist, to decipher the labyrinthine trail of ancient symbols that snakes across Rome to the long-forgotten Illuminati lair - a secret refuge wherein lies the only hope for the Vatican.: But, with each revelation comes another twist, another turn in the plot, which leaves Langdom and Vetra reeling and at the mercy of a seemingly invisible enemy... : Amazon Review: It takes guts to write a novel that combines an ancient secret brotherhood, the Swiss Conseil Europ?en pour la Recherche Nucl?aire, a papal conclave, mysterious ambigrams, a plot against the Vatican, a mad scientist in a wheelchair, particles of antimatter, jets that can travel 15,000 miles per hour, crafty assassins, a beautiful Italian physicist, and a Harvard professor of religious iconology. It takes talent to make that novel anything but ridiculous. Kudos to Dan Brown (Digital Fortress) for achieving the nearly impossible. Angels & Demons is a no-holds-barred, pull-out-all-the-stops, breathless tangle of a thriller--think Katherine Neville's The Eight (but cleverer) or Umberto Eco's Foucault's Pendulum (but more accessible).: Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is shocked to find proof that the legendary secret society, the Illuminati--dedicated since the time of Galileo to promoting the interests of science and condemning the blind faith of Catholicism--is alive, well, and murderously active. Brilliant physicist Leonardo Vetra has been murdered, his eyes plucked out, and the society's ancient symbol branded upon his chest. His final discovery, antimatter, the most powerful and dangerous energy source known to man, has disappeared--only to be hidden somewhere beneath Vatican City on the eve of the election of a new pope. Langdon and Vittoria, Vetra's daughter and colleague, embark on a frantic hunt through the streets, churches, and catacombs of Rome, following a 400-year-old trail to the lair of the Illuminati, to prevent the incineration of civilization.: Brown seems as much juggler as author--there are lots and lots of balls in the air in this novel, yet Brown manages to hurl the reader headlong into an almost surreal suspension of disbelief. While the reader might wish for a little more sardonic humor from Langdon, and a little less bombastic philosophizing on the eternal conflict between religion and science, these are less fatal flaws than niggling annoyances--readers should have no trouble skimming past them and immersing themselves in a heck of a good read. "Brain candy" it may be, but my! It's tasty. --Kelly Flynn -- : Review: "Fascinating and absorbing - perfect for anyone who appreciates a great, riveting read...Dan Brown is my new must-read. I love this book" (Harlan Coben): "Intrigue and menace mingle in one of the finest mysteries I've ever read. An amazing tale with enigma piled on secrets stacked on riddles" (Clive Cussler): "Dan Brown has built a world that is rich in fascinating detail, and I could not get enough of it.

Available Now. Book Description: When historian Fluke Kelso learns of the existence of a secret notebook belonging to Josef Stalin he is determined to track it down, whatever the consequences. From the violent political intrigue and decadence of modern Moscow he heads north - to the vast forests surrounding the White Sea port of Archangel, and a terrifying encounter with Russia's unburied past. : Amazon Review: Before political journalist Robert Harris turned to fiction and resurrected Hitler for his best selling novel Fatherland, he also wrote a hugely entertaining account of the farce surrounding the publication of the hoax Hitler diaries. Archangel, with the obvious exception of substituting Hitler for that other 20th-century ogre Josef Stalin, can be seen as something of a combination of these previous projects. The novel opens in present-day Russia where a louche Oxford academic, Christopher "Fluke" Kelso, is attending a conference on the newly available Stalin archives. Kelso quickly becomes embroiled in a quest for some of Uncle Joe's still secret papers--and also a quest to make his own academic reputation--but soon uncovers more than he bargains for. The ghosts of the old authoritarian past exert a peculiar and all too powerful tug on Yeltsin's fragile capitalist democracy and as Kelso is drawn ever nearer to the secret that lies in the remote White Sea port of Archangel so the tragedies of the past become hideously more plausible in the present. Harris is historically sound, politically astute and his acute insight into the apparatus of state repression and minds of despots is unnerving. But most of all he tells a terrific yarn and Archangel sees him on top form. This is his best yet.--Nick Wroe -- : Review: "The best thriller for years" (Sunday Telegraph): "His best yet: a fast paced thriller, pulsing with suspense, that surpasses even the expertly handled tensions and twists of Fatherland" (Peter Kemp Sunday Times): "Robert Harris confirms his position as Britain's pre-eminent literary thriller writer with Archangel" (Brian MacArthur The Times): "A really gripping narrative, full of suspense and unexpected turns, which will keep you hooked until the climax on its final page... I have never read a thriller based in Russia which has such an authentic feel" (Orlando Figes Evening Standard): "Archangel is Harris's strongest book yet, confirming him as the leading current exponent of the intelligent literary thriller" (Peter Millar The Times) Size: 11.1 x 3 x 17.7 cm. 432 pages.

Book Description: A potential breakthrough discovery to reverse global warming…a series of unexplained sudden deaths in British Colombia…a rash of international incidents between the United States and one of its closest allies that threatens to erupt into an actual shooting war….: NUMA director Dirk Pitt and his children, Dirk. Jr. and Summer, have reason to believe there's a connection here somewhere, but they also know they have very little time to find it before events escalate out of control. Their only real clue might just be a mysterious silvery mineral traced to a long-ago expedition to find the fabled Northwest Passage. But no one survived from that doomed mission; captain and crew perished to a man - and if Pitt and his colleague Al Giordino aren't careful, the very same fate may await them.: Filled with the breathtaking suspense and audacious imagination that have become his hallmarks, this is a tour de force, further proof that when it comes to adventure writing, nobody beats Clive Cussler. : Review: Impossible to put down... a compelling sense of adventure that can rival any cinematic blockbuster (Big Issue ) : About the Author: Clive Cussler is the author or coauthor of thirty-five previous books, including nineteen Dirk Pitt novels, seven NUMA Files adventures, five Oregon Files books, three works of nonfiction, and his historical adventure, The Chase.

Book Description: Around the world ancient artefacts are suddenly appearing, hinting at a catastrophe that will soon visit Earth ...: Dirk Pitt is on hand at a Colorado archaeological site where an ancient and mysterious artefact has been found - one that is perhaps linked to other strange objects turning up across the globe. And soon Pitt's skills and ingenuity are desperately needed to rescue the team after a suspicious explosion seals them deep underground. : It quickly becomes clear that the artefacts carry a message: a warning of global Armageddon. Yet a shadowy organisation called the Fourth Empire not only wants to stop others from heeding that warning, but is also actively seeking to accelerate the end it foretells. Now Pitt and NUMA must face this diabolical foe, who will stop at nothing to wipe out all life on earth ... : Amazon Review: Dirk Pitt, indestructible hero of 14 previous Clive Cussler novels and special projects director of the National Underwater and Marine Agency (which is something like the CIA of the ocean depths), makes James Bond look like a tuxedoed, martini-swilling poser. Pitt has raised the Titanic, escaped massive volcanic eruptions, ducked nuclear explosions, foiled criminal plans for world domination, saved everyone on Earth from germ warfare and mastered the ins and outs of various electronic gizmos and futuristic vehicles while evading every imaginable form of almost certain death. (Of course, he's also wildly successful with brilliant, beautiful women, but in an admirably circumspect, sensitive-guy way.) It stands to reason Pitt's the right man to handle a crisis of millennial proportions.: When mysterious black obsidian skulls and other artefacts of an exceedingly ancient culture begin to turn up in odd places, Pitt jumps in with both feet. It soon becomes dangerously apparent that a powerful, amoral group of fanatics calling itself the Fourth Empire wants the strange discoveries to remain underground. Pitt teams up with a beautiful red-haired expert in ancient languages to decipher the meaning of the artefacts. They were made 10 millennia ago in a then-temperate Antarctica by a seafaring civilization advanced enough to predict its own destruction by a comet impact. Now the Fourth Empire (whose literal and figurative progenitor comes as no surprise) is predicting a similar disaster in only a matter of months and preparing to take control of the Earth. : Cussler's known for hands-on research--his hobbies are the backbone of Pitt's adventures: Flying, climbing, diving, racing. His scientific and historical riffs that fill in the background of Atlantis Found are the weakest parts of the book--they're Pitt-less, and give every discovery in the book away early. But what the heck--Cussler's not the king of suspense, he's the emperor of non-stop action. Atlantis Found bounces along on a good-humoured techno-joyride and for Cussler's legion of fans, that will be more than enough. --Barrie Trinkle -- : About the Author: Clive Cussler is the author or co-author of thirty-eight previous books, including nineteen Dirk Pitt novels, eight NUMA Files adventures, six Oregon Files books, three works of non-fiction, and his historical adventures, The Chase and The Wrecker.

But she finds travelling through Asia more smelly than romantic and, besides, she's missing her boyfriend. However, she is determined not to give in, give up or go home. As she travels further east she begins to enjoy her journey - until murder starts to follow her and the trip becomes much more adventurous than she had anticipated. : Amazon Review: It's New Year's Day and the year isn't kicking off well for Tansy: her mother's dead, she's a cocaine addict and her boyfriend has just left her. A trip around the world seems like the only option except that she's not interested in seeing the world, just escaping from it, and the last people she wants to hang out with are backpackers. : Like a lot of travellers on the Lonely-Planet-led Asian Grand Tour, Tansy is intensely irritating at first. Always on the look out for the "real" Vietnam--the one in which she can walk around "like a model, fanning myself gently, strolling into ancient temples and learning about inner peace"--she is opinionated, narrow-minded and remarkably naive (for a supposed media luvvy). Once she has shrugged off her addiction to lines of coke, skinny lattes and Nicole Fahri jumpers, she becomes more appealing. So by the time she's fallen for Max, a fellow traveller, she'll have won you over and you'll be just as worried as she is about the serial killer who appears to be on her trail.: Emily Barr is a former Westminster researcher who now writes for the Guardian and the Observer. Backpack is her first novel and, like Tansy, takes a while to find itself. City-girl pretensions jostle with shoestring-style travelogue and it is only when it hits full-throttle thriller mode that Barr's strength as a novelist becomes apparent. Be prepared for echoes of The Beach--hardly surprising given that Barr was an extra in the film. Also be prepared to get itchy feet--if nothing else, you'll be tempted to reach for that backpack and slap on the insect repellent.--Jane Honey : Review: 'Barr's debut comes as a blast of fresh air' Sunday Express -- Size: 13.1 x 2.3 x 19.7 cm. 384 pages.

Available Now. Book Description: It was a junket, a freebie. A 'team-building' weekend in the highlands for lawyers, advertising execs, businessmen, even the head of a charity. Oh, and a journalist, specially solicited for his renowned and voluble scepticism - Jack Parlabane. Amid the flying paintballs and flowing Shiraz even the most cynical admit the organisers have pulled some surprises - stalkers in the forest, power cuts in the night, mass mobile phone thefts, disappearing staff, disappearing guests: there's nothing can bring out people's hidden strengths or break down inter-personal barriers quite like not having a clue what's going on and being scared out of your wits. However, when the only vehicular access for thirty miles is cut off it seems that events are being orchestrated not just for pleasure ... And that's before they find the first body. Thereafter, 'finding out who your colleagues really are' is not so much an end product as the key to reaching Monday morning alive. : Amazon Review: By now, readers know what to expect from the remarkable Mr Brookmyre, and Be My Enemy has all the hallmarks of his caustic wit. The protagonist of his earlier books, the wry Jack Parlabane, makes a welcome reappearance, faced with an intriguing professional problem: he is to take part in a weekend of "corporate teambuilding" in the comfortable surroundings of a secluded estate. But quite what sort of course is this? Jack's instincts as a no-holds-barred hack, skilled at uncovering unpalatable truths, warn him that something unusual is in the offing--but he's not quite prepared for the extremely dangerous sideshow that is to accompany the corporate makeovers.: This is wonderfully abrasive stuff, full of the scabrous insights that we read Brookmyre for, and it's good to see ideas shoehorned into the satirically biting prose; while never neglecting the crucial task of keeping us turning those pages, Brookmyre makes some sharp points here; one of them being that we all harbour certain fascist tendencies, stifling a desire to put paid to those who go against us. The Highland country house in Be My Enemy functions as a hot house in which certain ideas along these lines can be explored--and Brookmyre's conclusions are just as likely to upset politically correct leftwingers as they are to ruffle the feathers of staunch conservatives. But don't get the idea that this is any kind of a tract: Brookmyre is a man who knows that ideas in novels must always be at the service of the narrative and that's very much the case here. Jack Parlabane's one-liners are as spot-on as ever, and the juggling of violence and black humour is as precisely judged as we expect from this writer. --Barry Forshaw : Review: 'The most mischievous white-knuckle writer on the bookshelf' -- Daily Express: '[Brookmyre] is at his best... shrewd and pitch-black humour' -- Telegraph Size: 12.6 x 2.8 x 19.7 cm. 416 pages.

Available Now. Book Description: A Swedish crime writer as thrilling as Mankell, a detective as compelling as Wallander. . . : Borkmann's Point by Håkan Nesser is the second gripping novel in the Van Veeteren series.: 'Borkmann's rule was hardly a rule; in fact, it was more of a comment, a landmark for tricky cases . . . In every investigation, he maintained, there comes a point beyond which we don't really need any more information. When we reach that point, we already know enough to solve the case by means of nothing more than some decent thinking.' : Two men are brutally murdered with an axe in the quiet coastal town of Kaalbringen and Chief Inspector Van Veeteren, bored on holiday nearby, is summoned to assist the local authorities. The local police chief, just days away from retirement, is determined to wrap things up before he goes.: But there is no clear link between the victims. Then one of Van Veeteren's colleagues, a brilliant young female detective, goes missing - perhaps she has reached Borkmann's Point before anyone else . . .: Borkmann's Point is followed by the third title in the series, The Return. : Review: `Nesser spends as much time with his characters as with the mystery, and the police officers soon become familiar, creating an absorbing tale with an unexpected ending.' --Sunday Telegraph : `The plot is sound and fast-moving, there is a tense climax, and Chief inspector Van Veeteren of the Dutch police is an amiably dour investigator.' --The Times: `Hakan Nesser is one of the masters of the genre...The wonderful sense of place and vivid descriptions transport the reader to the Swedish woods and mountains, to bleak stretches of beach and rain-swept sea-side towns, enhancing the sense of menace.' --South China Morning Post: `Murder most Swedish...The reader is well and truly hooked form the word go.' --The Oldie: `The novel's prime asset is the mordant clarity of Nesser's voice. Its understatement is a pleasure in itself...At times resembling a deadpan comedy of provincial life, the novel delivers enough peppery asides on the ageing process and the passage of time to demonstrate a bleakly perceptive intelligence...Early on, plot points are gracefully distributed...The novel's dour charm is such that it remains engaging.' --Times Literary Supplement : Book Description: The second novel in the internationally acclaimed Inspector Van Veeteren series Size: 13 x 2.6 x 19.7 cm. 336 pages.

Available Now. Book Description: Love and need make unexpected bedfellows, and both are blind. As the grip of a long hard winter tightens on Lydmouth, a dead woman calls the dying in a seance behind net curtains. Two provincial newspapers are in the throes of a bitter circulation war. A lorry-driver broods, and an office boy loses his heart. : Britain is basking in the warm glow of post-war tranquillity, but in the quiet town of Lydmouth, darker forces are at play. The rats are fed on bread and milk, a gentleman's yellow kid glove is mislaid on a train, and something disgusting is happening at Mr Prout's toyshop.: Returning to a town shrouded in intrigue and suspicion, Jill Francis becomes acting editor of the Gazette. Meanwhile, there's no pleasure left in the life of Detective Chief Inspector Richard Thornhill. Only a corpse, a television set and the promise of trouble to come. : Review: 'Andrew Taylor's latest addition to his "Lydmouth" murder series perfectly evokes that innocent world of the 1950s. The book is wonderfully redolent of that era, except that it has psychological depth instead of Christie-type cliches. Taylor builds a gripping story, as redolent of the period as brown linoleum. His subtle exploration of provincial society, with its gruesome underbelly, makes this a powerful extension to the series.' - Independent: How skilfully he recreates the atmosphere of the time through innuendo, attitude and detail rather than dogged description . . . Taylor is the master of small lives writ large (Frances Fyfield, Express on The Suffocating Night): 'This is top of the class. Taylor's re-creation of the 1950s is absolutely convincing.' - Sue Baker's Top 10 crime & thriller titles, Publishing News: The most underrated crime writer in Britain today (Val McDermid): Andrew Taylor is one of the most interesting, if not THE most interesting novelist writing on crime in England today (Harriet Waugh, Spectator): Taylor is an excellent writer (The Times): The people depicted here are real and believable and the drabness and genteel facade of Fifties England is skilfully brought to life. Taylor is, as always, adept at showing the reality beneath the surface (Sunday Telegraph): CALL THE DYING is expert, ingenious and absorbing, with its eye trained on horizons lying in wait (Spectator): Full of nostalgic detail, this is old-fashion crime at its best (The Times) : Book Description: From the prize-winning author of Richard and Judy Book Club novel, The American Boy, this is the seventh in the acclaimed Lydmouth crime series, set on the Welsh/English border in the confusing years after the Second World War.

Available Now. Book Description: Emily Gibson has come to Japan as a missionary, to start a new life. In America her beauty drove men wild. In Japan she possesses no beauty at all. Matthew Stark speaks like a missionary but wears a pistol like a gunslinger. Emily has come to Japan to bury her past, Stark has come to kill his. It is 1861 and after two centuries of isolation Japan has been forced to open its doors. A whole way of life is about to die. Lord Genji of the Akoaka Clan knows this. Blessed with his family's power of prophecy he has foreseen that his and Japan's fate lie in the hands of outsiders. But this knowledge is dangerous to many powerful men, and deadly for Genji. As intrigue mounts and the city of Edo and the Shogun's palace are smashed by foreign ships, Genji plans his escape to his ancestral home, the Cloud of Sparrows. With him travel Emily and Stark, and Heiko, his beautiful geisha and a deadly spy. However, the road is long and there are many places along the way for a samurai to attack and for Genji to die. : Amazon Review: Cloud of Sparrows slings an impressive amount of full-blooded plot material at us along with an intelligent weighing out of historical fact. Young Lord Genji is a samurai whose blood feuds with the Shogun go back centuries--his family have predictive powers that have shown him that his future lies in forming alliances with the incoming Americans. Emily is a young missionary who considers Japan to be a place where her looks will be considered hideous and she will be free of male attention; Heiko is the most beautiful geisha of her generation, and also a ninja assassin who has fallen in love with her prospective victim, Genji. And Stark is a gunslinger posing as missionary who has come to Japan to find a man he has sworn to kill. : The strength of all this lies, in part, in the fact that both sets of characters are as exotic to us as they are to each other--Takashi Matsuoka is wittily smart about how much things change in a century and a half. He also writes brilliantly and excitingly when describing a scene of battle, a gun or sword duel. This is a startlingly good debut. --Roz Kaveney : Review: A splendid new novel set in Japan and the 19th century world of samurai, geishas, ninjas and Zen masters. Emily Gibson is a missionary, who together with her fianc Zephaniah Cromwell, is here to start a new life and make as many converts as possible. With them is Matthew Stark, nominally a missionary, but a man who always carries a pistol. Zephaniah is wounded by a bullet meant for Lord Genji of the Akoaka Clan. Blessed with the power of prophecy, Genji foresees that Japan's future will lie in the hands of foreigners, so he plans to escape to his ancestral home, the Cloud of Sparrows, and with him travel Emily, Stark and his beautiful geisha, a spy. It is redolent of the feel of Japan at that time, and has already been sold for $1m as a film. Hugely readable. Size: 23.6 x 15.6 x 3.8 cm. 400 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Available Now. Book Description: An imprisoned paedophile and child murderer unexpectedly appeals his conviction. In return for a reduced sentence, he offers to implicate those involved in the crimes who were never caught; to provide evidence of Police corruption at the time of the original investigation; and, most importantly, to reveal where the corpses of several long-sought, but never found teenage girls are buried.: Unhappy at what may be about to happen, but at the same time desperate to locate the body of his own missing daughter, the father of one of these girls approaches Private Investigator Leo Rivers with a plea for help.: Rivers' enquiries stir cold and bitter memories. Long-dead enmities flare suddenly into violence and a succession of new killings. Everyone involved, then and now, and on both sides of the law, is unprepared for the suddenness and ferocity with which these old embers are fanned back into life. As the investigation progresses, it gathers momentum, and now must speed inexorably to the even greater violence and sadness of its conclusion.: The first of a trilogy of contemporary crime novels set in the city of Hull, Robert Edric's new novel is reminiscent of Chandler and Mosley, and yet remains uniquely British. Against the backdrop of Internet pornography, Police corruption and child murder, this dark and intense novel reads like a game of chess where each piece is invested with a deceptive significance. : Review: "'Highly accomplished... Fans can look forward to his usual sharply realised characters operating in a tense, pressured environment'" (Independent): "'A rewarding experience...This is murder at its most foul, crime at the deep end'" (Spectator): "'His novel is something substantial and distinctive...Edric has a clear, almost rain-washed style, eminently suitable for his Hull setting...Cradle Song is a strong and serious novel, soberly entertaining and well worth your while'" (Literary Review): "'Cradle Song is a superbly paced book... This is classic crime noir... Edric can also produce beautiful prose and arresting images as well as incisive social satire... Magnificently achieved'" (Giles Foden): "'Deeply intelligent...Vertiginously devious...Twists like a fist around the throat of the reader'" (The Times) : Book Description: Stunning literary crime novel, from the acclaimed author of Booker-longlisted PEACETIME, and THE BOOK OF THE HEATHEN.

They spend their off time at Galveston Island, fishing at night on the jetties, the future kept safely at bay, the past drifting off somewhere behind them. : But on the Fourth of July, change approaches in the form of Ida Durbin, a sweet-faced young woman with a lovely voice and a mandolin. Jimmie falls instantly in love with her. But Ida's not free to love - she's a prostitute, in hock to a brutal man called Kale, who won't let her go. Jimmie agrees to meet Ida at the bus depot, ready for the road to Mexico. But Ida never shows. Dave and Jimmie want to believe she skipped town, but they know, deep down, that Ida Durbin never got to leave. : That was many years ago - before Dave Robicheaux began his long odyssey through bars and drunk tanks and skin joints of every stripe. Before the Philippines and Vietnam. Now, an older, well-worn Dave walks into Baptist Hospital to visit a man called Troy Bordelon, who wants to free himself of a dark secret before he dies. A bully and a sadist, he has a lot to confess to - but he chooses to talk about a young girl, a prostitute who he glimpsed briefly as a kid, bloodied and beaten, tied to a chair in his uncle's house. Dave realises he can't let the past go. Ida's killers are still out there. So he begins his journey into the past - back to the summer of 1958 and a girl called Ida Durbin. : Review: '...the pace, the plotting and the scene-setting are, as always, marvellously evocative and sustained.' (Philp Oakes LITERARY REVIEW): 'Nobody evokes the steamy bayous that surround New Orleans and the seedy low-life that dwells there more eloquently than James Lee Burke, one of America's most elegaic writers in any genre.' (Myles McWeeney IRISH INDEPENDENT): There's not much left to add to the praise already heaped on Burke. He is simply one of the best crime writers in the world. (Susanna Yager SUNDAY TELEGRAPH): Robicheaux's complex character elevates Burke's work above the usual crrime fiction genre ... he keeps it up there with his elegaic descriptions of the Louisiana landscape, a place where, in the marshland of the bayou, the past is an integral part of the present. (SUNDAY EXPRESS): [James Lee Burke] has a shelf-full of awards and a shedful of sales. Everyone who knows the genre grasps that his series of books about the Louisiana detective Dave Robicheaux has grown into one fo the crowning achievements in current US fiction. Together, they compose a matchless portrait of the ragged America we saw dissolve into chaos and cruelty. (Boyd Tonkin THE INDEPENDENT): As ever with Burke, the novel is beautifully written, prefectly structured and peppered with some wonderfully flawed characters. But, more than that, he tells a great story, making some pretty profound oservations along the way. (Allan Laing HERALD): Crusader's Cross is further confirmation of why [Burke's] the best in the business.

Book Description: When Terry Pugh's headless body is found floating in the canal, DCI Woodend at first believes that Pugh had merely miscalculated the amount of rope he needed to hang himself. But why would Pugh commit suicide when he had a loving wife who was expecting their first baby, and was just about to start an exciting new job? Other disturbing questions soon follow in the first body's wake. Who was the mysterious stranger Pugh was seen with, just before he died? What is the connection between him and the down-and-out who suffers a similar fate to his only twenty-four hours later? And how many more men are intended to die?

The Roman Empire is up for the taking. The Year of the Four Emperors will change everything - especially the lives of two sisters with a very personal stake in the outcome. Elegant and ambitious, Cornelia embodies the essence of the perfect Roman wife. She lives to one day see her loyal husband as Emperor. Her sister Marcella is more aloof, content to witness history rather than make it. But when a bloody coup turns their world upside down, both women must manoeuvre carefully just to stay alive. As Cornelia tries to pick up the pieces of her shattered dreams, Marcella discovers a hidden talent for influencing the most powerful men in Rome. In the end, though, there can only be one Emperor...and one Empress.: Book Description: The violent Roman world brought to life for a female audience.

She wrote her first book during her freshman year in college, retreating from a Boston winter into ancient Rome, and it was later published as "Mistress of Rome." A prequel followed, titled "Daughters of Rome," and then a sequel written while her husband was deployed to the Middle East.: "I realized that my Roman legionary hero in `Empress of the Seven Hills' was fighting in the same part of the world where my US Navy husband was deployed. Life imitating art, or art imitating life? I have no idea!": Kate is currently working on her fourth novel, set in the Italian Renaissance.

Available Now. Book Description: Now retired from the Metropolitan Police, disabled Jimmy Jenner tries his hand as a private eye, but it all starts to go wrong when the woman he is minding is killed. As he attempts to atone for his lapse, Jenner finds himself plunged into a world of international crime. From the author of TYRO, LONDON FIELDS and OUT OF THE BLUE. --: Amazon Review: Jimmy Jenner is a private detective with a limp in his foot and a chip on his shoulder. Injured in a bomb attack while on duty, he was forced to take early retirement from his beloved police force and now scrapes together a living by finding the odd missing person and serving the occasional writ for solicitors. Like all private dicks his ambition is to work on a murder case, and as luck would have it one soon comes his way in the shape of the dead body of Alison Duncan, wife of East End boxer George Duncan. The gruesome facial disfigurement of the body leads Jenner to suspect that the body is not that of Alison at all, and suddenly he's in the middle of a dodgy East End racket, tough-talking his way through the shady underside of society in his quest to find the truth. Its all very Philip Marlowe, but without the wit, and for die-hard detective-fiction fans Milne has clumsily borrowed too much from Chandler for this novel to be anything more than a pale imitation. It is still a good read however, even if the prose sometimes struggles too hard to express the cynicsm of Jenner's world view, and at least the plot will keep you genuinely guessing until nearly the last page.

Available Now. Book Description: Re-inventing the spy story for the 21st Century.: John Le Carre meets Jason Bourne!: Daniel Marchant, a suspended MI6 officer, is running the London Marathon. He is also running out of time. A competitor is strapped with explosives. If he drops his pace, everyone around him will be killed, including the US ambassador to London. Marchant tries to thwart the attack, but is he secretly working for the terrorists?: There are those in America who already suspect Marchant of treachery. Just like they suspected his late father, the former head of MI6, who was removed from his job by the CIA. Marchant is treated like an enemy combatant - rendition, waterboarding - but he has friends who are disillusioned with America's war on terror. Friends like Leila, his beautiful MI6 colleague and lover, and Sir Marcus Fielding, the new Chief who resents the White House's growing influence in Whitehall.: On the run from the CIA, Marchant is determined to prove his father's innocence in a personal journey that takes him from Wiltshire, via Poland, to India. It was here that the former MI6 chief once met with one of the world's most wanted terrorists, and where the new President of America is shortly to visit. But was that meeting proof of a mole within MI6 or the best penetration of Al Qaeda the West has ever had? And was Marchant's father the keeper of another, darker secret?: In a compelling thriller that updates the spy novel for the 21st century - think John Le Carre meets Jason Bourne - Marchant discovers the shocking realities of personal betrayal and national loyalty, and that love can be the biggest risk of all. : Amazon Review: A relatively new publishing imprint can always use a few winners to achieve lift-off; new publishing kid on the block Blue Door must be rubbing their hands, as the auguries are very promising for Jon Stock's highly impressive Dead Spy Running. The book arrives emblazoned with raves from the likes of Lee Child and Robert Goddard - hinting to the reader that both action and storytelling will push all the requisite buttons.: Daniel Marchant is an inactive MI9 operative. Rather than languishing in torpor, he has decided to run the London Marathon. But the dangers of his ex-day job are not far away - one of the other competitors is lethally strapped with explosives, and if he reduces his pace, all around him will die bloodily. Marchant does his best to avert the slaughter, but there are those who think that he is compromised in his professional life. The CIA ensured that Marchant's father was removed from his position as head of MI6, and they are convinced that the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree. Marchant finds himself treated like a suspected terrorist (extraordinary rendition, waterboarding), and things look very black for him. But there are people who are not against him: Marchant's colleague (and inamorata) Leila. And, more importantly, new Intelligence chief Sir Marcus Fielding, who is suspicious of America's apparently unshakeable grip over UK foreign policy.: The opening premise (don't drop below a certain pace or risk detonation) may be borrowed from the movie Speed, but that's the only element here that doesn't come up as fresh as paint; Jon Stock has taken the accoutrements of the espionage thriller and given them a bracing wash and rinse. The real achieve, however, is to marry the kinetic energy of the Jason Bourne franchise (that's the films, rather than Ludlum's books) with the political sophistication and dyspeptic view of international relations of John le Carr? and Gerald Seymour. The publisher Blue Door has a potential bestseller in Dead Spy Running. --Barry Forshaw : Review: "Dead Spy Running is a rip-roaring race of a read that never lets up until the finishing tape - and a bit beyond." Robert Goddard: "As elegant as le Carre and as cynical as the twenty-first century ... exactly what we need from a spy novel now." Lee Child: "Smart, classy, and relentlessly gripping, DEAD SPY RUNNING grabs the reader and doesn't let go. I couldn't quit turning the pages - like Daniel Marchant running the London marathon, I couldn't stop." Meg Gardiner: "A Jason Bourne sweat-fest with George Smiley's brain" - Daily Telegraph: "An elegant, unstoppable front runner of a spy thriller" - The Observer: "Picks up more or less where Le Carr? left off" - The Guardian: "A compelling thriller" - Sunday Times: "Its deliciously John Buchan-like hero could: be chasing the 39 steps" - Daily Mail: "As strong as Bourne, as clever as Bond, but with a voice set for Generation Next, Jon Stock has done the impossible in Daniel Marchant and created THE new spy, a living, breathing human, whose own unpredictability suits perfectly our unpredictable world."

Book Description: Detective Harry Mason has rejoined the South African Police Service after a two-year leave of absence, and moved over to the specialised Serious and Violent Crimes unit, headed by the tough and fiery veteran commander Superintendent Carl 'Blackie' Swarts. Soon afterwards, Harry is assigned to investigate the slaying of a minor politician and his family, in a township west of Johannesburg. The case, at first seemingly unsolvable, is abruptly saved by an enigmatic grassroots anarchist whom Harry befriended during the apartheid riots of the '80s, and soon the SVC is hot on the heels of one of the country's most secretive and violent vigilante groups, known as 'The Guardians', headed up by two brothers whose brutality is legendary amongst the poor inhabitants of Johannesburg's squatter camps.: As the investigation slices away at the layers of secrecy surrounding this group, other secrets surface - truths that ultimately pose a threat to Harry's unit, and to the city at large. When Harry is abruptly gunned down by unseen assassins during a dawn raid on a remote village, and a bomb is detonated in the judicial heartland of Johannesburg, his former police partner and long-time friend, Detective Jacob Tshabalala, is forced to take matters into his own hands, and expose a splinter faction of vigilantes operating within the police service itself - a faction whose connections stretch all the way into parliament itself. : About the Author: Richard Kunzmann is a native South African who majored in criminology. While working as bookseller in London, he commenced writing his first novel Bloody Harvests (shortlisted for the Crime Writers Association 'John Creasey Award for Best First Crime Novel'), which was followed by Salamander Cotton.
