SAT-OKS

SĀĻO KLINŠU ZEME

IZDEVNIECĪBA «LIESMA» RĪGA 1967

No krievu valodas tulkojusi A. OZOLA-SAKSE Vāku un titulu zīmējis Z. KAMPARS Ilustrējis V. ANDREJENKOVS

«Sāļo Klinšu zeme» ir autobiogrāfisks stāsts, ko uzrakstījis Sat-Oks, indiāņu ševanēzu cilts virsaiša un poļu revolucionāres dēls.

«Sat-Oks» ir indiāņu vārds un nozīmē «Garā Spalva». So vārdu mazais indiāņu zēns — uti — ieguvis niknā sadursmē ar varenu ērgli.

Aizraujoši un poētiski Sat-Oks stāsta par savu neparasto bērnību, ko pavadījis Kanādas mūža­mežos, par mednieku cilts dzīvi, tikumiem un pa­ražām, par lieliskiem indiāņu jaunekļiem karotā­jiem, drosmīgiem un vīrišķīgiem, kas ir lepni uz savu brīvību, pazīst skaudros meža likumus, ir hu­māni nepieciešamajā cīņā ar varenajiem biezokņu iemītniekiem. Bet biezoknis — tas ir ševanēzu cilts mājas, viņu tēvu un vectēvu mājas, viņu dzimtene.

 Автор: Curran Tim


An unspeakable evil is stalking the territory. Civil war veteran and bounty hunter Tyler Cabe, who is tracking a merciless murderer, must find a way to battle something beyond the imagination of living man.

“Tim Curran goes hell-bent for leather in this supernatural thriller set in the Wild West, and he scores a big, bloody bullseye. Writing in the rich language of a Dark Angel on hell brewed whiskey, Curran gives us the scariest beasts ever to fork legs over a horse. Skin Medicine is a wild ride into the Dark Frontier.”

They were called the Gang of Ten. Masked night riders that rustled cattle and imposed vigilante justice on any who stood in their way. They were powerful, above the law.

But then they lynched the son of a Blackfoot medicine man who threatened to tell their terrible secret.

Now something is hunting them. One by one they die in the most horrible ways, victims of an ancient evil straight out of Blackfeet folklore.

 Серия: Bolitho


In the spring of 1802 Richard Bolitho is summoned to the Admiralty in London and given his orders for a difficult and, to him, distasteful task. Even an advanced promotion to vice-admiral to make him one of the youngest ever appointed does not compensate for his sudden and thankless mission. Bolitho and his wife are expecting their first child, and for once he is loath to quit the land for the demands of duty. The Peace of Amiens, signed a few weeks earlier, is already showing signs of strain as the old enemies wrangle over the return of colonial possessions won and lost during the war. In the little sixty-four-gun Achates Bolitho sails West for Boston, and thence to the Caribbean where he must hand over the island of San Felipe to the French. Bolitho discovers that to be a man of diplomacy is not enough, and as threat and counter-threat weave a web of intrigue around his lonely command he balances success against the danger to the men who must follow him even to the cannon's mouth.

 Автор: Clavell James


Shogun is one of those rare books that you wish would go on forever. Indeed, I know people who re-read it every year. The story follows the adventures of marooned English sailor John Blackthorne in late medieval Japan during the tumultuous years when Tokugawa Ieyasu (here called Toranaga) was uniting all of Japan under his rule by any means necessary. It's truly an epic tale of war, honor, trechery, masterful manipulations, tragic heroism, and star-crossed love.

Обложка книги Steel Steel

 Автор: Vaughn Carrie


It was a slender length of rusted steel, tapered to a point at one end and jagged at the other, as if it had broken. A thousand people would step over it and think it trash, but not her.

This was the tip of a rapier.

Sixteen-year-old Jill has fought in dozens of fencing tournaments, but she has never held a sharpened blade. When she finds a corroded sword piece on a Caribbean beach, she is instantly intrigued and pockets it as her own personal treasure.

The broken tip holds secrets, though, and it transports Jill through time to the deck of a pirate ship. Stranded in the past and surrounded by strangers, she is forced to sign on as crew. But a pirate's life is bloody and brief, and as Jill learns about the dark magic that brought her there, she forms a desperate scheme to get home — one that risks everything in a duel to the death with a villainous pirate captain.

Time travel, swordplay, and romance combine in an original high-seas adventure from New York Times bestseller Carrie Vaughn.

Portugal, 1809. Frankreich ist auf dem Vormarsch, die portugiesische Armee gnadenlos unterlegen.

This is Bernard Cornwell's first novel, written as a means of providing him with an income while living with his American fiancée in her home country where he could not get a work visa.

Cornwell’s plan "to write a series of tales about the adventures of a British rifleman in the Napoleonic Wars" and he had wanted to start with the Siege of Badajoz but on reflection, he felt that this was too ambitious for his first novel and so decided to start with a couple of easier books as a warm-up. Cornwell also wanted to find a task just as impossible as the taking of Badajoz for his first adventure, and so the capture of a Regimental Eagle from a French Regiment provided the challenge the author felt necessary to establish the reputation of both Sharpe and his close friend, Sergeant Patrick Harper.

But the rescue is the least of Sharpe's problems. He must face a far greater threat. With only the support of his own company and the new Rocket Troop — the last word in military incompetence — to back his gamble, Sharpe cannot afford even to recognize the prospect of defeat. For to surrender — or to fail — would mean the end of the war for the Allied armies…

Accused of stealing a consignment of Napoleon's treasure en route to Elba, Sharpe must elude his captors and track down the unknown enemy who has tried to incriminate him.

More concerned with cutting a dash at a grand society ball in Brussels, the Young Frog refuses to listen to Sharpe's scouting reports of an enormous army marching towards them with the lately returned Napoleon at its head. When the Battle of Waterloo commences, Sharpe has to stand by and watch military folly on a grand scale. But at the height of the conflict, just as victory seems impossible, he makes a momentous decision. With his usual skill, courage and determination he takes command and the most hard-fought and bloody battle of his career becomes Sharpe's own magnificent triumph.

Through the incompetence of a recklessly ambitious naval commander and the machinations of his old enemy, French spymaster Pierre Ducos, Sharpe finds himself abandoned in the heart of enemy territory, facing overwhelming forces and the very real prospect of defeat. He has no alternative but to trust his fortunes to an American privateer — a man who has no love for the British invaders.

When in 1798 Richard Bolitho hoists his broad pendant as commodore of a small squadron and prepares to re-enter the Mediterranean he is soon made aware of his responsibility. There are rumours of a massive French armada and of the latest type of artillery – and Bolitho's orders are to seek out the enemy and to discover the intentions of his growing force. Without any British bases in the Mediterranean, and unable to show favour to old friends, Bolitho is well aware that there are others within his ships who are no less dangerous than the enemy – and during the weeks and months in which the squadron faces the hazards of the weather and French broadsides alike, Bolitho knows that far more than his own future is at stake. A fleet, even a nation, could depend on his decisions and, when he places his squadron between the Nile and the power of France, he must accept the price of the challenge.

In March of 1814, Admiral Sir Richard Bolitho returns to England from several months' rigorous patrolling off the North American coast. The bitter and inconclusive war with the United States has not yet ended, but news of Napoleon's defeat and abdication has stunned a navy and a nation bled by years of European conflict. Victory has been the impossible dream and now, for Bolitho, a vision of the future and a personal peace seems attainable. He remains, however, an admiral of England, and an unsympathetic Admiralty dispatches him to Malta. Perhaps this appointment is a compliment, perhaps a malicious ploy to keep him from the woman he loves and the freedom for which he craves? He cannot know, but the voice of duty speaks more insistently even than the voice of the heart, and in this familiar sea where both glory and tragedy have touched his life, Bolitho must confront the future, the renaissance of a hated tyrant, and the fulfilment of destiny.

'Peace or war, the requirements for this squadron remained unchanged. To protect, to show the flag, and to fight if necessary, to maintain that mastery of the sea which had been won with so much blood.' On the eve of Waterloo, a sense of finality and cautious hope pervade a nation wearied by decades of war. But peace will present its own challenges to Adam Bolitho, captain of His Majesty's Ship Unrivalled, as many of his contemporaries face the prospect of discharge. The life of a frigate captain is always lonely, but for Adam, mourning the death of his uncle Admiral Sir Richard Bolitho, that solitude acquires a deeper poignancy. He is, more than ever, alone, at the dawning of a new age for the Royal Navy, where the only constants are the sea and those enemies, often masked in the guise of friendship, who conspire to destroy him.

It is a far step from midshipman's berth to wardroom – and at a time when most of the fleet is laid up Bolitho is considered fortunate. Bolitho's promotion is tinged by personal sadness, but his new captain soon points out that Bolitho's loyalty is to him, the ship and His Britannic Majesty – in that order. Despatched on a secret mission far south to Rio and then to the Caribbean, Destiny and her company face the hazards of conspiracy, treason and piracy – and, as the little ship sails on, Bolitho has to learn amid broadside battles at sea and the clash of swords in hand-to-hand actions how to accept his new responsibilities as a King's officer.

The year is 1778, the ship is the 18-gun HMS Sparrow, England's finest sloop of war, and the Captain is Richard Bolitho, sailing his command into the fury of battle. The American Revolution has turned the Atlantic coast into a refuge for privateers and marauding French warships, and it is up to young Bolitho to fight the colonial rebels, to stave off the treachery of a beautiful woman, and to overcome the dangerous incompetence of a senior officer before it is too late.

Captain Alan Lewrie returns for his tenth roaring adventure on the high seas. This time, it's off to a failing British intervention on the ultra-rich French colony of Saint Domingue, wracked by an utterly cruel and bloodthirsty slave rebellion led by Toussaint L'Ouverture, the future father of Haitian independence. Beset and distracted though he might be, it will take all of Lewrie's pluck, daring, skill, and his usual tongue-in-cheek deviousness, to navigate all the perils in a sea of grey.

Обложка книги Steel Steel

 Автор: Vaughn Carrie


It was a slender length of rusted steel, tapered to a point at one end and jagged at the other, as if it had broken. A thousand people would step over it and think it trash, but not her.

This was the tip of a rapier.

Sixteen-year-old Jill has fought in dozens of fencing tournaments, but she has never held a sharpened blade. When she finds a corroded sword piece on a Caribbean beach, she is instantly intrigued and pockets it as her own personal treasure.

The broken tip holds secrets, though, and it transports Jill through time to the deck of a pirate ship. Stranded in the past and surrounded by strangers, she is forced to sign on as crew. But a pirate's life is bloody and brief, and as Jill learns about the dark magic that brought her there, she forms a desperate scheme to get home — one that risks everything in a duel to the death with a villainous pirate captain.

Time travel, swordplay, and romance combine in an original high-seas adventure from New York Times bestseller Carrie Vaughn.

Tim Blackburn, a famous round-the-world yachtsman, must discover the fate of his impulsive, brilliant but wayward daughter, Nicole. Nicole disappeared in the company of Caspar von Rellsteb, an environmental activist and leader of the Genesis Community. He and his followers believe that the planet can only be saved by ruthless force. Blackburn's boat, STORMCHILD, will carry him halfway around the world to the harshest land and the fiercest seas on earth. There, in a tumult of weather and emotion, Blackburn the hunter becomes the hunted as he precipitates a terrifying confrontation with the evil he finds; with men and women whose motives have been eroded by exhaustion and perverted by fanaticism; with the daughter he had once known, and now has to find again.

 Серия: Bolitho


In the spring of 1802 Richard Bolitho is summoned to the Admiralty in London and given his orders for a difficult and, to him, distasteful task. Even an advanced promotion to vice-admiral to make him one of the youngest ever appointed does not compensate for his sudden and thankless mission. Bolitho and his wife are expecting their first child, and for once he is loath to quit the land for the demands of duty. The Peace of Amiens, signed a few weeks earlier, is already showing signs of strain as the old enemies wrangle over the return of colonial possessions won and lost during the war. In the little sixty-four-gun Achates Bolitho sails West for Boston, and thence to the Caribbean where he must hand over the island of San Felipe to the French. Bolitho discovers that to be a man of diplomacy is not enough, and as threat and counter-threat weave a web of intrigue around his lonely command he balances success against the danger to the men who must follow him even to the cannon's mouth.

The summer of 1917.

Britain is losing the war against the deadly German U-boats.

After a close fought action, Commander David Smith uncovers what he believes is a deadly plot against Britain from a dying German sailor. Code-named SchwerttrZiger — or Swordbearer — it could turn the tide of the war in Germany's favour. But nobody will listen to him. He is under suspicion, and ignored. With just one one ancient destroyer, a turtle-back ‘thirty-knotter’ known as ‘Bloody Mary’, under his command, he must wage this battle on his own. Smith has to take on shore batteries and bigger, faster enemy destroyers. He has to fight the hostility of his commanding officer and is plunged into a world of espionage behind enemy lines. Through it all the mystery behind ‘Schwerttriiger’ lures him on — until he stakes his career and his life in a desperate attempt to solve it.

Ship of Force’ is an edge-of-the-seat WWI naval adventure that combines thrilling story-telling with meticulous research.

 Серия: The Oregon Files


Only Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon stand between two warring moguls and global havoc in this thrilling suspense novel in Clive Cussler's #1 New York Times bestselling series.


Nearly two thousand years ago, an Eastern emperor charged a small group with safeguarding secrets powerful enough to change the history of mankind. They went down in legend as the Nine Unknown Men — and now two rival factions of their descendants are fighting a mighty battle. Both sides think they are saving the world, but their tactics could very well bring about the end of humankind. Soon, Juan Cabrillo and his team of expert operatives aboard the Oregon find themselves trapped between two power-hungry adversaries, both of whom are willing to use shocking means to accomplish their goals.

Cabrillo and the team must divide and conquer as they fight dual threats, which include a supercomputer at sea and satellites that can wipe out technology across the globe — including the high-tech weapons on board the Oregon. The crew must rely on their unique skills to stop the tyrants in their tracks and save the earth from a dynasty of terror.

Über den Autor

Karl May wurde am 25.2.1842 in Hohenstein-Ernstthal als Sohn eines armen Webers geboren und war bis zum 5. Lebensjahr blind. Als Volksschullehrer wurde May wegen Diebstahls entlassen und verbrachte insgesamt 7 1/2 Jahre wegen Eigentumsvergehen und Betrügereien aus finanzieller Notlage im Gefängnis. Zunächst schrieb er erzgebirgische Dorfgeschichten und Humoresken für Zeitschriften in Dresden, später Kolportageromane. Mit seinen Reiseerzählungen, die in Nordamerika oder im Orient spielten, wurde May berühmt. Karl May starb am 30.3.1912 in Radebeul bei Dresden.


Entstehungsgeschichte

Ab 1892 brachte der Freiburger Verleger Friedrich Ernst Fehsenfeld eine Buchreihe mit Mays Reiseerzählungen heraus. Nach dem großen Erfolg des Orientzyklus (Band 1 bis 6) kamen weitere Bände hinzu. »Satan und Ischariot« erschien zunächst ohne Obertitel in der Wochenzeitschrift »Deutscher Hausschatz in Wort und Bild« und wurde später als Band 20 bis 21 veröffentlicht. Ein gestrichener Manuskriptteil wurde sehr viel später vom Karl-May-Verlag in Band 79 aufgenommen. Der vorliegende Text wurde nach den jeweiligen Buch-Erstauflagen von 1896/1897 und 1897 erfaßt.

This heartfelt and revealing account of Paul Theroux's thirty-year friendship with the legendary V. S. Naipaul is an intimate record of a literary mentorship that traces the growth of both writers' careers and explores the unique effect each had on the other. Built around exotic landscapes, anecdotes that are revealing, humorous, and melancholy, and three decades of mutual history, this is a personal account of how one develops as a writer and how a friendship waxes and wanes between two men who have set themselves on the perilous journey of a writing life.

 Автор: Durrell Lawrence


Although Durrell spent much of his life beside the Mediterranean, he wrote relatively little about Italy; it was always somewhere that he was passing through on the way to somewhere else. Sicilian Carousel is his only piece of extended writing on the country and, naturally enough for the islomaniac Durrell, it focuses on one of Italy's islands. Sicilian Carousel came relatively late in Durrell's career, and is based around a slightly fictionalized bus tour of the island.

Обложка книги Sunbathing in Siberia Sunbathing in Siberia

 Автор: Oliver-Semenov Michael A


Without aiming to be a survival guide, romance or autobiography, Sunbathing in Siberia manages to be all of them and none. Told completely from the Trans-Siberian and a series of Russian jets, this is the story of a young British poet, who, after becoming engaged to his translator over 3500 miles east, embarks on a journey into the very heart of Siberia to marry his fiancée. However, in place of the desolate wasteland he expected to find, Michael discovers the side of Siberia little known outside of Russia. After 30 years of British rain, Michael has finally to learn the art of sunbathing, in the last place on Earth anyone would think to take a pair of flip-flops.

With little knowledge of post-Soviet Russia, or its language; and without any survival skills, Michael has to adapt to the Siberian way of life. As Russia struggles to find its new identity, Michael too is forced to recreate himself, while finding the tools needed to live with parading nuclear missiles, wild bears, and a host of extreme dangers.

Review

‘Mao’s seemingly ceaseless ability for honest and frank prose is one of this book’s real strengths – Sunbathing in Siberia situates itself between two cultures at a time in which it is most necessary to do so, interrogating and exploring national identities. Insightful and hilarious, the memoir prompts the reader to re-evaluate their approach to the East.’

New Welsh Review

 Автор: Melchiorri Anthony J


Shukshin may be an ordinary truck driver, but his delivery route demands all the poise and determination of a ship’s captain in the vice-grip of a storm. He travels a highway buried in the depths of the Siberian taiga to bring vital supplies to towns before winter swallows the roads and makes them impassable. His task is one of dire necessity and certain peril, confronting the thorny side of both men and nature.

Fortunately, Shukshin is not alone. In his copilot’s seat, Dusha, his faithful dog, joins Shukshin in his adventures through the taiga. But, when a blizzard rages through Siberia, Shukshin finds himself in a desperate scramble for survival. Even Dusha may not be able to save him from the dangers that lie in wait behind ice and darkness.

Shipwrecked in Siberia is a 7,100 word, 29-page story of survival, following a man and his dog as they struggle, side by side, for a chance at life in the unforgiving ocean of the Siberian taiga.

Das Jahr des Herrn 1863 ist eine düstere, hoffnungslose Zeit in Deutschland. Das einfache Volk ist verarmt. Wer Arbeit hat, schuftet für Groschen. Menschen sterben an Hunger und Epidemien.

In dieser Zeit ist »Amerika« ein Wort der Hoffnung und Sehnsucht - ein Land, wo jeder sein Glück machen und zu Wohlstand kommen kann. Ein magisches Wort auch für den jungen Handwerksgesellen Jacob Adler, der zu Unrecht des Mordversuchs beschuldigt wird und aus Deutschland fliehen muss.

Doch sein Leben in Amerika wird härter und gefahrvoller sein, als er es sich in seinen ärgsten Träumen vorzustellen vermag. Ein Abenteuer wartet auf Jacob Adler, wie es kaum ein zweiter je erlebt hat...

 Автор: Haggard Henry Rider

 Серия: Fantasy Roman 1. Band der Haggard-Ausgabe


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.

Der Racheauftrag einer zweitausend Jahre zurückliegenden Bluttat führt Leo Vincey, den letzten Sproß eines alten griechischen Geschlechts, zusammen mit Horace Holly, seinem väterlichen Freund und Erzieher, nach einer gefahrvollen Reise in die geheimnisvolle Totenstadt Kor, wo ein uralter Kampf überirdischer Mächte seinen Höhepunkt erreicht und wo SIE herrscht: SIE, die wiedergeborene Göttin, vom Reichtum des alten Ägypten, von der Weisheit des antiken Griechenlands und von der Macht des imperialen Roms. SIE - von ewiger Jugend und tödlicher Schönheit ...

A novelization version of the upcoming film, "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" is set in 1939 New York City. The story follows Lois Lane — like reporter Polly Perkins, who's always looking for the latest scoop, as she covers the disappearances of many famed German scientists. After an interesting meeting with a stranger, who claims he's "the only one left" and leaves Polly with just a name (Totenkopf — German for "Death's Head") and a blueprint, the city falls under attack by giant trampling robots, but the day is saved when Sky Captain and the Flying Legion enter the scene and ward them off. Polly, naturally determined to find out what's going on, teams up with Sky Captain as they both fly around the world to search for Totenkopf, aided along the way by Sky Captain's right-hand man Dex and old-time friend Captain Francesca "Franky" Cook.

Обложка книги Satan und Ischariot III Satan und Ischariot III

 Автор: Май Карл


Über den Autor

Karl May wurde am 25.2.1842 in Hohenstein-Ernstthal als Sohn eines armen Webers geboren und war bis zum 5. Lebensjahr blind. Als Volksschullehrer wurde May wegen Diebstahls entlassen und verbrachte insgesamt 7 1/2 Jahre wegen Eigentumsvergehen und Betrügereien aus finanzieller Notlage im Gefängnis. Zunächst schrieb er erzgebirgische Dorfgeschichten und Humoresken für Zeitschriften in Dresden, später Kolportageromane. Mit seinen Reiseerzählungen, die in Nordamerika oder im Orient spielten, wurde May berühmt. Karl May starb am 30.3.1912 in Radebeul bei Dresden.


Entstehungsgeschichte

Ab 1892 brachte der Freiburger Verleger Friedrich Ernst Fehsenfeld eine Buchreihe mit Mays Reiseerzählungen heraus. Nach dem großen Erfolg des Orientzyklus (Band 1 bis 6) kamen weitere Bände hinzu. »Satan und Ischariot« erschien zunächst ohne Obertitel in der Wochenzeitschrift »Deutscher Hausschatz in Wort und Bild« und wurde später als Band 20 bis 21 veröffentlicht. Ein gestrichener Manuskriptteil wurde sehr viel später vom Karl-May-Verlag in Band 79 aufgenommen. Der vorliegende Text wurde nach den jeweiligen Buch-Erstauflagen von 1896/1897 und 1897 erfaßt.

 Серия: Jake Dillon Adventure


The Partners at Ferran & Cardini employ Dillon to tackle a simple problem in the big picture of international field operations. An innocent student has had the opportunity of adoring, in a private collection, what she considers to be ‘The Concert’, a classic painting by Vermeer dating back to 1665-66. This masterpiece was stolen in 1990 from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, and has never been seen since and is classed as priceless!

Dillon is set the task of determining whether the piece is the original or a superb forgery and embarks on an investigation into the Sandbanks-based owner and millionaire, the enigma that is Charlie Hart.

Simple is far from reality — on closer examination the owner of the painting seems to have more to hide than just the provenance of the classic work of art and takes disproportionate and deadly action to keep Dillon off his case.

No one close to Dillon is safe, his partner is targeted in what seems a purely innocent manner through her law firm but Dillon sees through this and sends her into hiding after he is tailed, stalked and explosive attempts on his life are foiled.

Dillon starts to put together a picture of a group of individuals who come from all walks of life — and who have several things in common — greed, international networks and no way back!

Their wealth is rooted in Asian drug cartels, gold bullion, arms trading, global hospitality chains, political espionage and underworld criminal activity.

As Dillon follows leads across London and the South West of England he leaves a trail of destruction and death — those involved that do not heed his warnings pay the ultimate price.

The chain of deceit stretches into the Houses of Parliament and deep within the corridors of power cowardly bravado breaks into the first chink in the armour — giving Dillon what he needs to prize deeper into his investigation. Although powers from above are keen for the enquiry to end. Why?

To add to the confusion is the discovery of gold bullion — could this be the haul from the 1983 Brinks Mat robbery that shocked the UK? This amongst more priceless Middle Eastern art and cocaine!

Now undercover Dillon puts to work all the experience he has gained in the field and uses many guises to outwit the security services and those that consider themselves beyond the law and want him dead! Could there be a price on his head? If so who wants him out of the picture that badly?

With his Glock by his side and Vince Sharp at the cutting edge of today’s technology can Dillon get through this one? Racing from Dorset to Delhi — has Dillon really learned any more and who is the mystery lady that is the focus of Hart’s attentions?

Shroud of Concealment is Dillon at his most raw — fists, street fights, breaking and entering and a multitude of disguises punctuated with breath taking shoot outs and death — he did warn them! Conscience is not something Dillon will entertain.

From M15 to MI6 and the back streets of Delhi Dillon fights to find the answers — and they are not necessarily the ones he wanted to hear!

 Серия: Chess Team Adventure


For more than a hundred million years, the Dark Continent has kept a savage secret.


While on the trail of a stolen tactical nuclear weapon, Jack Sigler, callsign: King, and his black ops Chess Team, answer a cry for help. The Democratic Republic of the Congo is on the verge of exploding into another bloody civil war that will engulf all of Africa and put millions at risk, a crisis too politically volatile for any outside nation to touch. As the team, unfettered by political constraints, deploys across the globe, the threats spin out of control.

A search for the Congo's missing president becomes a quest to solve a century old mystery, and uncover a secret that powerful men will kill to protect. A mission to rescue a team of scientists from violent revolutionaries devolves into a desperate run through the jungle, pursued by both modern man and ancient beast. And the effort to stop a revolution becomes a brutal contest, pitting King against the most cunning and sadistic foe he has ever faced-a deadly mercenary known as the Red Queen.

King has traveled around the globe and across time to protect the people he loves. Now, he must face a harsh truth: he cannot save everyone.


The Jack Sigler Thrillers, starting with PULSE, are now in development as a feature film series with director Jabbar Raisani, whose work on Game of Thrones earned him an Emmy Award.
