Обложка книги Appaloosa Appaloosa

 Автор: Parker Robert B

 Серия: Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch


A richly imagined novel of the Old West, as spare and vivid as a high plains sunset, from one of the world's most talented performers.

It was a long time ago, now, and there were many gunfights to follow, but I remember as well as I remember anything the first time I saw Virgil Cole shoot. Time slowed down for him. Always steady, and never fast...

When it comes to writing, Robert B. Parker knows no boundaries. From the iconic Spenser detective series and the novels featuring Sunny Randall and Jesse Stone, to the groundbreaking historical novel Double Play, Parker's imagination has taken readers from Boston to Brooklyn and back again. In Appaloosa, fans are taken on another trip, to the untamed territories of the West during the 1800s.

When Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch arrive in Appaloosa, they find a small, dusty town suffering at the hands of renegade rancher Randall Bragg, a man who has so little regard for the law that he has taken supplies, horses, and women for his own and left the city marshal and one of his deputies for dead. Cole and Hitch, itinerant lawmen, are used to cleaning up after opportunistic thieves, but in Bragg they find an unusually wily adversary-one who raises the stakes by playing not with the rules, but with emotions.

This is Robert B. Parker at his storytelling best.

Обложка книги After the Fall After the Fall

 Автор: Sparkman Darrel


Only the Strong Survive.

They called it “The Fall”—the total collapse of the United States and the American way of life. Within twelve months, eighty percent of the population is gone. After a time, even the military stops trying to cope and pulls back to the coasts, leaving the interior, from the Alleghenies to the Rockies, on its own. Now, the remnant of Americans left in the depopulated cities and the wilderness that used to be the breadbasket of the world are becoming increasingly desperate, doing anything it takes to survive.

In this new America, though, death is always just a heartbeat away. John Trent has survived because he is better at killing than those around him, but he’s getting tired of constantly living on the edge of his wits. As a courier for the army, he’s alway on the move, dodging raiders… and he doesn’t know how much longer he can go on. Then he meets a girl who gives him a reason.

But the discovery of a serial killer stalking the forests, killing young women in a horrific and brutal fashion, makes John realize he can’t abandon his skill at the hunt quite yet. Beyond that, a particularly vicious band of raiders is set to descend on a new settlement John has been ordered to protect ahead of a new repopulation effort. Caught in the middle, will he live long enough to enjoy his newfound love, or simply become the latest victim of the anarchy and chaos of the New American Frontier?

Обложка книги Agincourt Agincourt

 Автор: Cornwell Bernard


“The greatest writer of historical adventures today” (Washington Post) tackles his richest, most thrilling subject yet—the heroic tale of Agincourt.

Young Nicholas Hook is dogged by a cursed past—haunted by what he has failed to do and banished for what he has done. A wanted man in England, he is driven to fight as a mercenary archer in France, where he finds two things he can love: his instincts as a fighting man, and a girl in trouble. Together they survive the notorious massacre at Soissons, an event that shocks all Christendom. With no options left, Hook heads home to England, where his capture means certain death. Instead he is discovered by the young King of England—Henry V himself—and by royal command he takes up the longbow again and dons the cross of Saint George. Hook returns to France as part of the superb army Henry leads in his quest to claim the French crown. But after the English campaign suffers devastating early losses, it becomes clear that Hook and his fellow archers are their king’s last resort in a desperate fight against an enemy more daunting than they could ever have imagined.

One of the most dramatic victories in British history, the battle of Agincourt—immortalized by Shakespeare in Henry V—pitted undermanned and overwhelmed English forces against a French army determined to keep their crown out of Henry’s hands. Here Bernard Cornwell resurrects the legend of the battle and the “band of brothers” who fought it on October 25, 1415. An epic of redemption, Agincourt follows a commoner, a king, and a nation’s entire army on an improbable mission to test the will of God and reclaim what is rightfully theirs. From the disasters at the siege of Harfleur to the horrors of the field of Agincourt, this exhilarating story of survival and slaughter is at once a brilliant work of history and a triumph of imagination—Bernard Cornwell at his best.

 Серия: Nathaniel Drinkwater


In the aftermath of a typhoon, Captain Nathaniel Drinkwater brings His Britannic Majesty's frigate Patrician into the shelter of the Pearl River on the China coast. Seeking the means to refit, he is unwittingly entangled in bizarre events following the British occupation of Macao and Admiral Drury's attack on Canton.

Initially relieved to be assigned the straightforward duty of a convoy escort to Penang, Captain Drinkwater quickly discovers that the convoy's cargo con­tains a mysterious quantity of silver and a single passenger. An apparently routine task is suddenly complicated by the resurrection of an old, embittered hatred, and Captain Drinkwater finds himself drawn inexorably by treachery, greed, perversity, and cruelty towards a climactic rendezvous in the remote tropical rain forest of Borneo.

 Серия: Hornblower, Horatio Hornblower Series


May 1810, seventeen years deep into the Napoleonic Wars. Captain Horatio Hornblower is newly in command of his first ship of the line, the seventy-four-gun HMS Sutherland, which he deems “the ugliest and least desirable two-decker in the Navy List.” Moreover, she is 250 men short of a full crew, so Hornblower must enlist and train “poachers, bigamists, sheepstealers,” and other landlubbers. By the time the Sutherland reaches the blockaded Catalonian coast of Spain, the crew is capable of staging five astonishing solo raids against the French. But the grisly prospect of defeat and capture looms for both captain and crew as the Sutherland single-handedly takes on four French ships.

In A Brig of War, Nathaniel Drinkwater is promoted lieutenant of the brig HELLEBORE. He finds routine convoy escort duties end abruptly when Admiral Nelson, pursuing the French fleet to Egypt, sends HELLEBORE to the Red Sea with an urgent warning to the British squadron there. However, Nelson's apprehensions over French ambitions in the East are more than justified. Edouard Santhonax, Drinkwater's old enemy, is already preparing for a French descent on India. The hunt for this elusive Frenchman and his frigate is combined with British naval operations on the flank of Napoleon's Egyptian campaign. It is during the attack on Kosseir that Drinkwater is left for dead. His escape and the subsequent desperate attack on Santhonax leads to a still more dangerous situation under Augustus Morris, former tyrant of the midshipmen's berth on HMS CYCLOPS.

Обложка книги A Lady’s Life in the Rocky Mountains A Lady’s Life in the Rocky Mountains

 Автор: Bird Isabella L


A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains" by Isabella L Bird (1831 — 1904) represents a series of the author’s letters to her sister, written during her journey to Colorado. In a six-month period of time she covered over a thousand miles alone, riding a horse, often without any appointed destination. The book is actually a detailed record of this fascinating experience filled with beautiful, vivid descriptions of the scenery, the people she met, their way of life. Among others was "Rocky Mountain Jim" Nugent, a rough man, whom she portrayed as an "awful looking a ruffian as one could see”, but who became her guide and companion, and appears in the book in a romantic outlook. A well brought-up young lady, she rode through the American West, wearing Hawaiian riding dress, climbed mountains and helped with grazing.

Обложка книги A Regimental Affair A Regimental Affair

 Автор: Mallinson Allan

 Серия: Matthew Hervey


ALLAN MALLINSON’S A Close Run Thing and Honorable Company stirred readers and critics with the military adventures of young Captain Matthew Hervey at the Battle of Waterloo and amid the harsh terrain and treacherous intrigues of India. Now, in 1817, Hervey returns to an England whose hard-won peace is shaken by the distress and discord of its people. And even as he is caught up in the turbulent dawn of a new era, he must combat a deliberate attempt to orchestrate his own ruin.


The honors he won in India fell short of Captain Matthew Hervey’s deepest desire — to return to his beloved 6th Light Dragoons. But now circumstances allow him to resume command of the unit — and to marry the beautiful Lady Henrietta Lindsay, whom he has loved since childhood. Meanwhile, however, his soldier’s heart is pierced by the sight of men in British scarlet crippled in the service of king and country, now forgotten and cast off, reduced to begging and petty crime. It is no wonder that rabble-rousers clamor for reform and that lawlessness is erupting everywhere, from the cities to the countryside.


As for Hervey’s own cavalry, guarding Regency Brighton and ambushing French smugglers in midnight coves, he finds them, too, vastly changed. Their new lieutenant colonel, Lord Towcester, is a cold-eyed martinet — vain, inept, and bigoted — who cares less for the welfare of his men than for keeping the shine on their gleaming brass buttons. Moreover, it soon becomes clear that he will stop at nothing to bring about Hervey’s disgrace and downfall. For in this young officer, a war hero and former aide-de-camp to the Duke of Wellington, Towcester sees all that he himself once forfeited through cowardice.


But the scandal that haunts Towcester is an old and secret one and to expose it would cost Hervey his rank, the command of his beloved Sixth — and the means to support his radiant, passionate bride. Even the charming and determined Henrietta, not above a little politicking in high places to right wrongs, is unable to diplomatically put a stop to Towcester’s vendetta.


As the Industrial Revolution builds and food riots give way to rioting Luddite mobs, Hervey’s troop is posted to counter the threat of a general insurrection. But his field tactics and peacekeeping vision are jeopardized by enemies both within and without. And then fate calls his regiment to the dark frozen wastes of a distant frontier, where another people’s way of life is being destroyed by the march of change, and where tragedy and bloodshed will force a showdown between Hervey and his nemesis.


A Regimental Affair is a stunning tapestry of vivid characters, rousing action, and authentic historical detail that re-creates a world of polite English drawing rooms, poverty-stricken London streets, and frozen battlefields, where human passion and blind fate give birth to the destiny of a nation — and a hero.

1817 and 1818 have not been good years for Matthew Hervey. His beloved wife Henrietta is dead and he is no longer in the Sixth regiment. Now he is kicking his heels in a corrupt and unruly England far removed from its once glorious past. 1819 sees Hervey in Rome with his sister Elizabeth where a chance meeting with man of letters Percy Bysshe Shelley leads him to rethink his future. Realizing just how much he misses the excitement of military action and the camaraderie of his regiment, Hervey hurriedly purchases a new commission and is refitted for the uniform of the 6th Light Dragoons. Hervey’s most immediate task is to raise a new troop and to organize transport, for his men and horses are to set sail for India with immediate effect.

What Hervey and his greenhorn soldiers cannot know is that in India they will face one of their toughest trials. A large number of Burmese warboats are being assembled near the headwaters of the river leading to Chittagong, and the only way to thwart their advance involves an arduous and hazardous march through jungle territory. What begins as a relatively simple operation becomes a journey into the heart of darkness, as Hervey and his troop find themselves in the midst of hot and bloody action once more.

3-volume novel traces the fortunes of its hero, Anthony Adverse, from his illegitimate birth through his struggle to claim his rightful inheritance. Many ocean sequences.

Anthony Adverse was a love-child begotten in France, born in the Alps and reared in Italy, then launched upon a life of adventure. This is his story.

Anthony was the name the nuns gave the naked and squalling newborn child they found abandoned at their convent gate. They knew nothing of his past, of the star-crossed lovers who were his parents nor of the violent events which made him an orphan.

Playing his solitary games at the fountain in the convent courtyard, the child grew. He did not know enough of the outside world even to dream of the voyages and adventures that would be his nor of the women who would love him.

To obtain the best terms the French muster a show of strength from Biscay to the Channel ports. At the British Admiralty there are some who see a daring opportunity to even the score at any negotiation table – and who better to undertake it than the young Rear Admiral Bolitho! In June 1801 Bolitho's small squadron is still repairing the scars of battle earned at Copenhagen – and as he receives his orders from London Bolitho is, for the first time in his life, torn between the demands of duty and his real desire to marry. When the squadron sails it is joined by an additional ship, a frigate with many memories from the past. But where Bolitho's flag leads so his captains must follow, if necessary to the brink of disaster – for theirs is a tradition of victory.

ATLANTIS GOLD


Egypt, 1938


A leading archaeologist vanishes while exploring a newly discovered chamber inside the Great Pyramid of Giza.


Mediterranean Sea, Present Day


Ex-U.S. Navy specialists Carter Hunt and Jayden Takada are working one of their first jobs in civilian life — repairing a subsea data cable for an international telecom company — when their mini-sub is attacked by persons unknown wishing to stem the flow of information in and out of Egypt. They survive the encounter only to receive a call from Hunt's ex-girlfriend, Dr. Madison Chambers, an archaeologist currently on an excavation at the Great Pyramid of Giza.

She has a most unusual request — she needs someone to scuba dive inside the pyramid. Hunt agrees to help, but soon finds out that the same people behind his close call on the data cable are also interested in what has been found in the pyramid.

Before long, Hunt and Takada find themselves on the run from a shadowy criminal enterprise that will stop at nothing to obtain artifacts that appear to lead to nothing less than the lost city of Atlantis.

A trail of clues looks like it will lead the accidental explorers to legendary riches of unfathomable worth, but will they be able to safeguard them from those who would do anything to control ancient secrets?

Anthony was the name the nuns gave the naked and squalling newborn child they found abandoned at their convent gate. They knew nothing of his past, of the star-crossed lovers who were his parents nor of the violent events which made him an orphan.

Playing his solitary games at the fountain in the convent courtyard, the child grew. He did not know enough of the outside world even to dream of the voyages and adventures that would be his nor of the women who would love him.

Les Aventures de trois Russes et de trois Anglais (1872) mettent en scène six astronomes dont la tâche est de mesurer une portion de méridien terrestre. Il s'agit donc plus de géodésie que d'astronomie, mais historiquement, ce genre de travail a toujours échu aux astronomes. Les héros utilisent la méthode de triangulation exposée en détail dans l'Astronomie Populaire d'Arago. On retrouve le thème des grandes expéditions scientifiques des Picard, Lacaille, Maupertuis, Bouguer, Godin, La Condamine, Méchain, Delambre, Arago… commanditées par l'Académie des sciences, aux époques où le métier d'astronome était un métier dangereux.

 Серия: Hornblower, Horatio Hornblower Series


May 1810, seventeen years deep into the Napoleonic Wars. Captain Horatio Hornblower is newly in command of his first ship of the line, the seventy-four-gun HMS Sutherland, which he deems “the ugliest and least desirable two-decker in the Navy List.” Moreover, she is 250 men short of a full crew, so Hornblower must enlist and train “poachers, bigamists, sheepstealers,” and other landlubbers. By the time the Sutherland reaches the blockaded Catalonian coast of Spain, the crew is capable of staging five astonishing solo raids against the French. But the grisly prospect of defeat and capture looms for both captain and crew as the Sutherland single-handedly takes on four French ships.

Обложка книги A Brief Guide to Islamic State (2015) A Brief Guide to Islamic State (2015)

 Автор: Abu Rumaysah al Britani Abu Rumaysah


An English language ‘tourist guide’ to life in the ‘caliphate’.

The online book reads like a travel brochure, focussing on life “under the just shade of Islamic law in the Caliphate”. Al Britani describes the street food available and speculates that “in the near future we will be eating curries and chow meins on the streets of Raqqah and Mosul,” in reference to the worldwide recruitment that has been undertaken by Islamic State (IS).

He describes the weather as “Mediterranean”, and writes approvingly of the “bright fluffy snow” in the winters. Although the guide doesn’t contain instructions on terrorism, or how to join IS, it meanders around topics such as global domination while explaining the transport system.

The publication is peppered with British colloquialisms, with al-Britani claiming that IS is “dead serious about state building.” In a chapter regarding technology, the creation of anti-aircraft weaponry is raised, acknowledging that such a thing would be a “game changer”. The “real movers and shakers” are on the battlefield.

It concludes with the threat, “When we descend on the streets of London, Paris and Washington the taste will be far bitterer [sic], because not only will we spill your blood, but we will also demolish your statues, erase your history and most painfully, convert your children who will then go on to champion our name and curse their forefathers.”

 Автор: ściński Ryszard


In 1975, Angola was tumbling into pandemonium; everyone who could was packing crates, desperate to abandon the beleaguered colony. With his trademark bravura, Ryszard Kapuscinski went the other way, begging his was from Lisbon and comfort to Luanda — once famed as Africa's Rio de Janeiro — and chaos.

Angola, a slave colony later given over to mining and plantations, was a promised land for generations of poor Portuguese. It had belonged to Portugal since before there were English-speakers in North America. After the collapse of the fascist dictatorship in Portugal in 1974, Angola was brusquely cut loose, spurring the catastrophe of a still-ongoing civil war. Kapuscinski plunged right into the middle of the drama, driving past thousands of haphazardly placed check-points, where using the wrong shibboleth was a matter of life and death; recording his imporessions of the young soldiers — from Cuba, Angola, South Africa, Portugal — fighting a nebulous war with global repercussions; and examining the peculiar brutality of a country surprised and divided by its newfound freedom.

Durrell’s remarkable memoir of his spiritual journey with famed Taoist philosopher Jolan Chang.

Beginning with their first meeting over lunch at Lawrence Durrell’s Provencal home, Durrell and Jolan Chang — renowned Taoist philosopher and expert on Eastern sexuality — developed an enduring relationship based on mutual spiritual exploration. Durrell’s autobiographical rumination on their friendship and on Taoism recounts the author’s existential ponderings, starting with his introduction to the mystical and enigmatic “smile in the mind’s eye.” From parsimony, cooking, and yoga to poetry, Petrarch, and Nietzche, A Smile in the Mind’s Eye is a charming tale of a writer’s spiritual and philosophical awakening.

Traveling from India to the Himalayas, and on to China and Japan, Michaux voices his vivid impressions, cutting opinions, and curious insights: he has no trouble speaking his mind. Part fanciful travelogue and part exploration of culture, A Barbarian in Asia is presented here in its original translation by Sylvia Beach, the famous American-born bookseller in Paris.

Обложка книги A Lady’s Life in the Rocky Mountains A Lady’s Life in the Rocky Mountains

 Автор: Bird Isabella L


A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains" by Isabella L Bird (1831 — 1904) represents a series of the author’s letters to her sister, written during her journey to Colorado. In a six-month period of time she covered over a thousand miles alone, riding a horse, often without any appointed destination. The book is actually a detailed record of this fascinating experience filled with beautiful, vivid descriptions of the scenery, the people she met, their way of life. Among others was "Rocky Mountain Jim" Nugent, a rough man, whom she portrayed as an "awful looking a ruffian as one could see”, but who became her guide and companion, and appears in the book in a romantic outlook. A well brought-up young lady, she rode through the American West, wearing Hawaiian riding dress, climbed mountains and helped with grazing.

Обложка книги Allan Quatermain Allan Quatermain

 Автор: Haggard Henry Rider


Sir Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925), einer der bedeutendsten englischen Erzähler der Jahrhundertwende, gehört zu den Klassikern des phantastischen Abenteuerromans. Seine exotischen und farbenprächtigen Fantasy-Epen spielen vornehmlich im dunklen Herzen Afrikas, das zu jener Zeit noch weitgehend unerforscht und von wilden Völkerschaften bewohnt war und Raum bot für Spekulationen über geheimnisvolle unentdeckte Reiche und legendäre uralte Zivilisationen.

Allan Quatermain, ein erfahrener Afrikaforscher, der einst König Salomons Diamantenminen entdeckte, ist der Zivilisation müde. Er beschließt, nach Afrika zurückzukehren und in die unbekannten Gebiete westlich von Sansibar vorzustoßen, in denen Gerüchten zufolge eine weiße Rasse leben soll.

Gemeinsam mit dem Großwildjäger Sir Henry Curtis, dem Navy-Offizier John Good und dem ZuluHäuptling Umslopogaas bricht er in die Wildnis auf.

Nach blutigen Kämpfen mit den wilden Massai und mannigfachen Abenteuern finden sie die ersten Spuren dieser legendären Rasse, die - seit Jahrhunderten völlig von der Umwelt abgeschlossen - in einem unzugänglichen Hochtal im Herzen Afrikas lebt.

Mit den Stichen der Originalausgabe und einem Nachwort von Dr. Franz Rottensteiner.

Обложка книги A borotva éle A borotva éle

 Автор: Jefremov Ivan


A “borotva éle” — szimbólum: azt a szinte érzékelhetetlen határt jelenti, amely a tudat és a tudatalatti között húzódik, vagyis amely a teljesen egészséges én pszichikai tengelye. Így magyarázza meg regényének címét maga a szerző, a szovjet tudományos-fantasztikus irodalom klasszikusa, aki ezúttal a legújabb biológiai kutatások és felfedezések fényében boncolgatja az ember pszichofiziológiájának időszerű kérdéseit. Csodával határos, de megtörtént esetek, valóságos jelenségek hiteles leírásával igyekszik feltárni az emberi test és lélek rejtett tartalékait, energiaforrásait.

A történések középpontjában egy titokzatos fekete korona, annak különös kisugárzása áll. Több csoport is meg akarja szerezni, hajszákat rendeznek érte. E kalandok leírásával válik a mű térben és időben több dimenziójúvá. Visszanyúl a régmúltba is, például Nagy Sándor korába, vagy az óindiai művészet kezdeteihez, hogy pontosabban megvilágítsa a tegnap, a ma, sót a holnap eseményeit. Oroszországból kiindulva, Itálián, Dél-Afrikán át a forró Indiáig és a jeges Tibetig húzódik a cselekmény fonala.

A bőven áradó események egzotikus környezetben, titokzatos templomokban, lámakolostorokban, tengerfenéken stb. játszódnak le. Szemünk előtt zajlik le egy kalandos nőszöktetés; látjuk, hogyan verekszenek meg erőművészek túlerőben lévő fogdmegekkel; megismerjük a különleges, bénító folyadékot kilövő pisztolyt.

A mű hősei sarkított jellemű, különleges képességű férfiak, hősnői egzotikus szépségű és rendkívüli sorsú nők. Tanúi vagyunk hipnózissal való csodálatos gyógyításnak, az önszuggesztió nem mindennapi eseteinek. Csak egy példa a sok közül: a tibeti önsanyargató reszpáknak melegük lesz, amikor a fagyos szélben meztelenül állva locsolgatják magukat — a vizes törülköző megszárad rajtuk!

Jefremov a tudománynak és a valóságban gyökerező fantasztikumnak olyan tájaira vezet el bennünket, amelyeken szovjet írók még nemigen jártak.

Throughout most of history this part of the planet has remained closed to Western travelers. During the spring and summer of 1994 only a few short portions of my 3300-mile bicycle trip crossed sections of Tibet and China that were officially open to foreigners.

Über das Buch

San Francisco, O'Hara und seine Zeitschrift, für die er Erzählungen in wöchentlichen Fortsetzungen schrieb, die Redaktion, die Klubs, in denen er verkehrte, all die Nichtigkeiten jener tatenlosen Tage scheinen einer unbeschreiblich fernen Vergangenheit anzugehören. Nur mit Schaudern denkt Kid Bellew daran, wie er einst Zeit und Kraft in dem Bohèmeleben der großen Stadt vergeudet hat, ohne zu wissen, was Nahrung, Schlaf und Gesundheit in Wirklichkeit bedeuten. Aus einer Laune heraus hat er sich Goldgräbern auf dem Wege nach Alaska angeschlossen, hat ungeheure körperliche Strapazen auf sich genommen und schließlich Gefallen am harten Leben in den endlosen Wäldern, den unnahbaren, zerklüfteten Gebirgen und den wild schäumenden Wassern gefunden. Gemeinsam mit Jack Kurz, einem prächtigen Kameraden, schlägt er sich quer durch Alaska, zu Fuß, im Boot, auf Schneeschuhen und mit dem Hundeschlitten. Aus dem ehemaligen Chechaquo, dem Grünschnabel, wird der erfahrene Waldläufer, Hundeführer und Goldsucher Alaska-Kid.


Über den Autor

Jack London (eig. John Griffith, später J. G. London nach seinem Stiefvater) wurde am 12.01.1876 in San Francisco geboren und wuchs in ärmlichen Verhältnissen auf. Er schlägt sich als Fabrikarbeiter, Austernpirat, Landstreicher und Seemann durch, holt das Abitur nach, beginnt zu studieren, geht dann als Goldsucher nach Alaska, lebt monatelang im Elendsviertel von London, gerät als Korrespondent im russisch-japanischen Krieg in Gefangenschaft und bereist die ganze Welt. Am 22.11.1916 setzt der berühmte Schriftsteller auf seiner Farm in Kalifornien seinem zuletzt von Alkohol, Erfolg und Extravaganz geprägten Leben ein Ende.

Meryam and Adam take risks for a living. But neither is prepared for what lies in the legendary heights of Mount Ararat, Turkey.

First to reach a massive cave revealed by an avalanche, they discover the hole in the mountain’s heart is really an ancient ship, buried in time. A relic that some fervently believe is Noah’s Ark.

Deep in its recesses stands a coffin inscribed with mysterious symbols that no one in their team of scholars, archaeologists and filmmakers can identify. Inside is a twisted, horned cadaver. Outside a storm threatens to break.

As terror begins to infiltrate their every thought, is it the raging blizzard that chases them down the mountain – or something far worse?

A Wall Street Journal and Booklist Best Mystery of 2012

From the acclaimed author of The Gone-Away World, blistering gangster noir meets howling absurdist comedy as the forces of good square off against the forces of evil, and only an unassuming clockwork repairman and an octogenarian former superspy can save the world from total destruction.

Joe Spork spends his days fixing antique clocks. The son of infamous London criminal Mathew “Tommy Gun” Spork, he has turned his back on his family’s mobster history and aims to live a quiet life. That orderly existence is suddenly upended when Joe activates a particularly unusual clockwork mechanism. His client, Edie Banister, is more than the kindly old lady she appears to be—she’s a retired international secret agent. And the device? It’s a 1950s doomsday machine. Having triggered it, Joe now faces the wrath of both the British government and a diabolical South Asian dictator who is also Edie’s old arch-nemesis. On the upside, Joe’s got a girl: a bold receptionist named Polly whose smarts, savvy and sex appeal may be just what he needs. With Joe’s once-quiet world suddenly overrun by mad monks, psychopathic serial killers, scientific geniuses and threats to the future of conscious life in the universe, he realizes that the only way to survive is to muster the courage to fight, help Edie complete a mission she abandoned years ago and pick up his father’s old gun…

ATLANTIS GOLD


Egypt, 1938


A leading archaeologist vanishes while exploring a newly discovered chamber inside the Great Pyramid of Giza.


Mediterranean Sea, Present Day


Ex-U.S. Navy specialists Carter Hunt and Jayden Takada are working one of their first jobs in civilian life — repairing a subsea data cable for an international telecom company — when their mini-sub is attacked by persons unknown wishing to stem the flow of information in and out of Egypt. They survive the encounter only to receive a call from Hunt's ex-girlfriend, Dr. Madison Chambers, an archaeologist currently on an excavation at the Great Pyramid of Giza.

She has a most unusual request — she needs someone to scuba dive inside the pyramid. Hunt agrees to help, but soon finds out that the same people behind his close call on the data cable are also interested in what has been found in the pyramid.

Before long, Hunt and Takada find themselves on the run from a shadowy criminal enterprise that will stop at nothing to obtain artifacts that appear to lead to nothing less than the lost city of Atlantis.

A trail of clues looks like it will lead the accidental explorers to legendary riches of unfathomable worth, but will they be able to safeguard them from those who would do anything to control ancient secrets?

A young archaeologist travelling to New York City aboard the liner’s maiden voyage has brought along an intriguing find he hopes to sell to an antiquities collector. When the ship sinks, his artifact is still inside a safe.

But their troubles are only beginning as they are forced to do battle with a shadowy cabal that will stop at nothing to control the planet’s most sought-after hallmarks of humanity.
