Book Description: A Spellbinding Thriller about a Science History Professor on the Run for his Life and an Unpublished Einstein Theory that Could Change the World Debut novelist Mark Alpert brings one of the most explosive books of 2008, seamlessly weaving current issues of science, history, and politics with white-knuckle chases. David Swift, a professor at Columbia University, is called to the hospital to comfort his mentor, a physicist who's been brutally tortured. Before dying, the old man wheezes Einheitliche Feldtheorie. The Theory of Everything. The Destroyer of Worlds. Could this be Einstein's proposed Unified Theory--a set of equations that combines the physics of galaxies with the laws of atoms? Einstein never succeeded in discovering it. Or did he? Within hours of hearing his mentor's last words, David is running for his life. The FBI and a ruthless mercenary are vying to get their hands on the long-hidden theory. Teaming up with his old girlfriend, a brilliant Princeton scientist, David frantically works out Einstein's final theory to reveal the staggering scope of its consequences. With publishers around the world snapping up rights in twenty-two countries, the book has already become a global phenomenon, and the dynamic characters and gripping plot will keep readers compulsively turning the pages until the very end. : Review: Final Theory is a stupendous read!

034074880X ARNOTT, JAKE, He Kills Coppers
ARNOTT, JAKE
He Kills Coppers
Sceptre, UK. Softcover. Very Good Condition. 9780340748800 336 pages. Available Now. Book Description: August 1966, the long hot summer of World Cup euphoria is suddenly shattered by a brutal crime that shocks a nation seemingly at ease with itself. Three characters' fates are irrevocably bound up with this event and consequences that reverberate across three decades. An ambitious detective dragged into intrigues of corruption. A gutter press journalist with a nose for a nasty story. And a disaffected petty criminal pushed over the edge by a violent crime that haunts him. An epic story that looks at morality and corruption on both sides of the law and at the very heart of the state. : Amazon Review: Jake Arnott's He Kills Coppers opens in August 1966 when the feel-good factor is running high as England enjoys World Cup victory and a seemingly endless summer. But the sunshine brings some nasty creatures out, and the brutal slaying of three policemen in a west London street sends shockwaves right to the heart of the nation. For three men, the killing is more than a front-page outrage. For Billy Porter, a war-time hero turned petty thief, it's a plan that went fatally wrong. For Frank Taylor, a Detective Sergeant trying to climb the Met's career ladder without resorting to corruption, it's a bereavement--the loss of a loyal comrade which must be avenged. For Tony Meehan, cub reporter on the Sunday Illustrated, it's nothing more than a fortuitous scoop that assures him his job. But reporting the crime awakens sinister urges that he's unable to resist and soon Meehan is creating his own news. Three men who've never met; three lives inextricably linked, in a chain of events that changed history. : Those who raved about Arnott's debut novel The Long Firm will not be disappointed by its successor, a tale combining the tension of a hard-boiled crime thriller with a Dickensian eye for detail. The sounds and the spirit of 60s London are evoked with almost filmic precision, while the plot advances in that swift, inexorable fashion of the very best myths. A few of its peripheral characters, such as Jeannie, the whore with the conscience (I never want to rely on bad money again), and Mooney the Masonic vice-cop (Through the Mysteries of the Craft you can keep yourself clean), might be slightly clich?d, but the principal trio of narrators is vivid and utterly convincing. For a story that combines morality, the authentic whiff of Soho sleaze and a plot that goes straight for the jugular, readers need look no further. --Matthew Baylis -- : Review: [A] highly impressive thriller; a powerfully organized plot is matched by a steely narrative control that pays out just enough information to keep us on tenterhooks. The unfolding of the murder and cover-up is deftly handled, and there's a nice sideline in pithy historical detail: from the psychedelic 1960s to the uncaring Thatcherite '80s, the panorama is always authentic - and always at the service of the narrative. (Good Book Guide): Brilliant ... you won't be able to put it down. (Mark Sanderson, Sunday Telegraph Summer Reading): Mesmerizing. Brilliant. (New York Times Book Review): Many thought that Jake Arnott's debut, 'The Long Firm', was good but not quite as good as the hype tried to convince us it was. Frankly, Hemingway, Hammett and Greene together would have been hard pressed to come up with anything that good. His eagerly awaited follow-up, 'He Kills Coppers', has arrived - and it's better. (Time Out): Brilliant ... this bitter tour de force has a feeling of permanence. (Washington Post Book World): Compelling ... Arnott is a writer of many shades and, as in his debut, The Long Firm, shows his penchant for combining challenging storylines with strong storytelling. (Max Davidson, Sunday Telegraph): Arnott is a craftsman at what he does, a real cabinetmaker of pulp fiction, with everything nicely dovetailed (Sunday Times): Arnott nails every crunch and splatter of his dirty world ... A wicked delight. (People): Intoxicating (Scotland on Sunday): A British version of James Ellroy's L.A. Confidential. (Publishers Weekly): Propels Arnott further into a league of his own (Independent on Sunday): Brilliant (Literary Review): Easily as good, if not better, than the superb Long Firm ... A stylish tour-de-force (Big Issue) Size: 12.8 x 2.3 x 19.7 cm. 336 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Crime Fiction; Paperback; ISBN: 034074880X. ISBN/EAN: 9780340748800.

Both top corners of the cover are a little scuffed. 1941: the height of the Luftwaffe's 'blitz' on Kingston-upon-Hull and the biggest mystery in Romano-British archaeology starts when mosaic floors from a Roman villa are found in nearby stone quarries. When archaeologists try and recover them in 1948 the very first disappears overnight. In the devastated streets of a blitzed city ex-combat flyer Michael Tryton (now a Detective Inspector in the Hull City Murder Squad) is soon on the case of American archaeologist Zuleika Mascen. Another love lies deeper, haunting his every step. Interleaved with Tryton's enquiry is Flavius Candidus; military pensioner and expendable civil servant. Arriving in 337 AD at Petuaria Civitas Parisii on a covert mission to check out local loyalites, his plans soon change on meeting the 'Tyche' - spiritual emblem to the tribe and wife of powerful villa-owner Marcus Januarius. Each man driven by duty, their careful investigations are derailed by fascinating women and recurring events as two strong-minded servants of declining Empire confront powerful vested interest in a climax all their undoing.

The Sixth Man
Macmillan, UK. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. 9780230749238 432 pages. Available Now. Book Description: After alleged serial killer Edgar Roy is apprehended and locked away in a psychiatric unit, private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy's lawyer--an old friend of Sean King-- to look into the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins: while en route to their first meeting with the lawyer, King and Maxwell discover his dead body.: A rash of terrifying events begins to unfold and it is up to King and Maxwell to uncover the truth: is Roy a killer or not? But the more they dig into his past, the more they are bombarded with obstacles, half-truths, and dead ends that make filtering the facts nearly impossible. As each new theory brings a new revelation, King and Maxwell will be pushed to the limit. Could this deadly case be the one that leaves the duo permanently parted? : Amazon Review: David Baldacci is one of the most effortlessly accomplished novelists in the crime and thriller field at work today, and his new book,The Sixth Man, is one of his most engaging outings, representing some of his best work. His long-term protagonists, private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell, are confronted with a considerable challenge when serial killer Edgar Roy is apprehended and incarcerated in a psychiatric unit. The King/Maxwell duo are called in by the supposed murderer's lawyer (who has known Sean King for years) to check the details of the case. But things take a nasty turn very early on - even as Sean and Michelle are en route to meet the lawyer, the latter is killed - and it the duo who discover his corpse. Multiple problems begin to present themselves: is Edgar Roy really the psychopathic monster he is supposed to be? But their investigation, far from unveiling the truth, begins to throw up ever more insurmountable obstacles, with every new lead turning into a dead end. And as things become ever more tricky, even the unshakable loyalty between Sean and Michelle is to be tested to the limit.: The Sixth Man represents Baldacci on cracking form, with all the customary elements firmly in place. He author has long produced some of the most assured and accomplished thrillers being written in the USA, and recent books have gleaned him a great many new readers. This latest book is perhaps less innovative in terms of plotting and character development than we are used to, but it is none the worse for that. --Barry Forshaw : Review: 'It is fast-paced and action-packed with lots of intrigue and his customary extensive detail...Anyone disappointed that Baldacci has taken a break from his popular Camel Club series will find plenty to enjoy here...The chicanery of this plot would test the best Formula 1 drivers' : --Sunday Express: 'Chemistry between characters is desirable for films but it is vital for novels too - and in Sean King and Michelle Maxwell it is delivered in spades by David Baldacci...You worry that it might all come unstuck as you reach the thrilling, twisting climax - but never fear, it just gets better' --The Sun: 'Baldacci admirers have come to expect an opening which takes you by the throat and that is what we get here...for pulse-racing excitement readers turn to Baldacci': --Daily Express and Scottish Daily Express: 'Researching intrigue, murder...and relaxing' --The Irish Examiner Size: 15.3 x 3.9 x 23.4 cm. 432 pages.

BARLAY, NICK
Hooky Gear
Sceptre, UK, 2002. First Edition, Softcover. New. 9780340750056 320 pages. Available Now. Book Description: J is a successful burglar, with a house full of 'well-selected antique furnishins', a wife with an 'enhanced front', and a talent for acquiring hooky gear. But when a break-in goes badly wrong he finds himself betrayed and deserted by the people he trusted the most. Emerging from prison, J is torn between good intentions and the desire for revenge, but as the strands of his life continue to unravel before him, he becomes an unlikely, and ultimately tragic, hero.: This is an engaging novel, by a writer with a really strong voice. Read the first two pages and you will be hooked.: 'This is a fine literary novel with an ambition to be greater than a gangster-police thriller. Barlay has achieved his goal and more.' Telegraph : Review: 'Barlay's evocation of the grimy end of Notting Hill, west London, is wonderfully written, with a convincing cast of characters, from the villainous to the inane. Dominated by the brooding figure of the absent sibling, this is a low-key treat' : The Times: Rarely does one read writing so inventive, yet so tensed against habituation; so exuberant, but so obsessed with the business of conveying depression, hopelessness and failure. What elevates Barlay from the crowds of undistinguished caper-writers is an extraordinary facility for creating and sustaining individual voices - this is a brilliantly literary novel. (Guardian): A disturbing peek into London's real underworld . A brilliant, haunting snapshot of a subculture which is really quite sumfink. (Big Issue in the North): 'A nicely judged balance of insightful descriptions and world-weary sarcasm. It's full of colourful characters and the dialogue is fantastically rich ... Barlay's ear for slang and talent for getting it on the page is, like, the wickedest. Y'na mean?'': Independent on Sunday: 'An extremely well written and provocative novel which makes Nick Barlay the Zola of North West London' : Kilburn Times: Barlay recreates the inner city's cold, closed world of deprivation, crime, drugs and violence with an expertise which recalls Chandler's expeditions to the seedier side of Hollywood. There's black humour on every page. Highly recommended. (Time Out): 'It was very nice to pick this up and find a writer who is not only in command of his technique but seems to be have his finger on the city's pulse' : Guardian: Funny, poignant, oozing attitude and character, this is the final part of Barlay's urban trilogy. Hits the spot (Mirror): Barlay's controlled and energetic demotic fixes you to the page - and it is not just the language that sets this above all other 'Geezer Chic' writing; it is the superbly bitter-sweet desperation of J. This is a fine literary novel with an ambition to be greater than a gangster-police thriller. Barlay has achieved his goal and more. (Telegraph): Barlay is fast developing a reputation as the new Elmore Leonard. Unlike lesser urban chroniclers, Barlay refuses to romanticise the thug life. Instead his probing and flowing prose digs under the skin of nervy paranoia, self-loathing and misguided heroism. Deceptively intelligent, tragic but never sentimental, [Hooky Gear] is a welcome alternative to Guy Ritchie's slumming habits (Jockey Slut): Brilliant ... one of the Dons of British urban writing (Diran Adebayo, Observer): With stampeding pace, theatrical slanging matches and a murky landscape of docks and backstreets, 'Hooky Gear' injects fresh venom into the London crime thriller. (Big Issue) : Book Description: A quite brilliant novel that has drawn comparisons with Elmore Leonard and Raymond Chandler: dark, frenetic and utterly compelling. Size: 12.9 x 2 x 19.8 cm. 320 pages. Multiple copies available this title. Quantity Available: 49. Category: Crime Fiction; Paperback; ISBN: 0340750057. ISBN/EAN: 9780340750056.

BARR, EMILY
Backpack
Headline, UK, 2001. First Edition, Softcover. Very Good Condition. 9780747266761 384 pages. Available Now. Book Description: Tansy has to escape from her London life. She's desperate to get away from her media job, her coke habit, her dead mother and her selfish boyfriend. 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.

BILLINGHAM, MARK
Lifeless (Tom Thorne Novels)
Little, Brown, UK, 2005. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. 9780316727525 384 pages. Available Now. Book Description: To his friends, his foes and even to himself it looks as though Tom Thorne's career is on the skids. On his last case he had seriously over-stepped the mark, and now gardening leave has been suggested and all he has to tend is a window box. So when it appears someone is targeting London's homeless community it seems pefectly natural for Thorne to take a step nearer to the gutter and go undercover amongst them. He blends into the sometimes invisble community easily - too easily perhaps - but the information he gleans quickly proves that this is no random killer, it is someone with a very distinct purpose and a very specific list of victims, only the team supporting Thorne from the outside don't have the key to motive or identity. Then somehow the fact that a policeman is working under cover becomes public knowledge ... With acute observation of character and place, combined with his acknowledged mastery of plotting, LIFELESS raises the Thorne series to an even higher level. : Amazon Review: In Lifeless, Mark Billingham's Tom Thorne reaches something like the nadir of his police career, broken by the death--possibly the murder--of his demented father and shuffled off to a desk job of infinite tedium. When someone starts kicking the London homeless to death, he suggests going undercover, and those of his friends who care about him worry that he is looking for his own destruction as much as for the killer. Certainly Thorne finds compensations on the street for danger, cold, hunger and squalor--his friendship with two young addicts is nonetheless real for his deceit and their pragmatic ruthlessness. Yet the secret of the deaths he is investigating lies only partly in London's dark alleys and corners; it lies as well fourteen years in the past on the road to Baghdad... This is probably Billingham's best thriller yet--inventive and passionate and full of commitment and dark humour. In his vulnerability and shrewdness, Tom Thorne is gradually shaping up into a classic detective whose habit of breaking the rules is not so much a strength as part of a pattern of self-destructive behaviour. Billingham's writing gets better with each book, too--the rough tenderness for each other of Spike and Caz, Thorne's mildly deranged guides to the street, is delicate and moving. ---Roz Kaveney : Review: Complex, thought-provoking and, in parts, very funny ... a tour de force (OBSERVER): Murder and mystery do not come better than this. (WHAT'S ON IN LONDON): Assured and shocking thriller. (GUARDIAN): A cunning variation on the serial-murder theme. (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH) Size: 16.1 x 3.4 x 24.1 cm. 384 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Book Description: Adam Tomaszewski is a Polish airman, flying Hurricanes alongside British pilots as the Battle of Britain rages in the summer skies over Kent and Sussex. 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.

Book Description: A metaphor for the decline of a social class, a country and the resentment that spreads like a plague penetrating to the core of its people, Rage is a tale of love and suspense that raises the tension with every successive page. Humour, misfortune, shrewd social commentary and thrilling erotic fantasy come together, offering the reader an inside vision of contemporary Argentina. Soon to be made into a film by acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro. : Review: AExcellent films and wonderful novels have arrived in recent years from Argentina. Bizzio is a new discovery with his novel RAGE, soon to be a film noir by Guillermo del Toro, the director of Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy and a tale that blends social fable with dreamlike fantasy. It is a portrait etched in acid of a Buenos Aires society menaced by economic and political crisis. Without value judgement but with light irony, Bizzio reveals the ugly secrets of a family, seen through the eyes of his naive squatter. The imagery is often blinding and the dialogue pitch-perfect.A Le Temps : About the Author: Novelist, playwright, poet, and screenwriter, the Argentinian writer Sergio Bizzio has already made his own debut as a film director with Animals, which received the Opera Prima award for Best Screenplay from the National Institute of Cinematography in Argentina. His short story Cinismo was made into a film (XXY) by his girl friend Lucia Puenzo and won four prizes at the Cannes Film Festival in 2007. RAGE is his sixth novel.

BLACK, BENJAMIN
A Death in Summer (Quirke 4)
Picador, UK, 2012. First Edition, Softcover. Very Good Condition. 9780330509152 336 pages. 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.

The Bricklayer
Harper, UK, 2010. First Edition, Softcover. Very Good Condition. 9780007312146 448 pages. Available Now. Book Description: A blockbusting new thriller introducing maverick FBI agent Steve Vail.: Move over Jack Reacher, here comes The Bricklayer. James Patterson: STEVE VAIL IS A MAVERICK.: A trained killer and former agent, Vail despises authority and he's never met a rule he didn't break. These days he's working as a bricklayer.: Now, Deputy Kate Bannon of the FBI desperately wants his help.: Because someone is killing their operatives - in complex, subtle, twisted ways - and the body count is rising fast. Someone holds a fatal grudge against the agency; someone who knows how it works, and wants a bloody revenge.: And it might be an inside job.: To stem the tide of murders, Vail must re-enter a world he hoped he left behind long ago - his own past. : Review: 'Noah Boyd brings his FBI experience to this dazzling thriller. The pace is frenetic, the action is unique, and the drama intense. We have a new American hero in Steve Vail' Patricia Cornwell: 'The Bricklayer has terrific pace, surprises galore, and snappy dialogue in the appropriate places. Even better, it has a real hero. Move over Jack Reacher, here comes The Bricklayer' James Patterson: 'Non-stop action and non-stop authenticity make this a real winner' Lee Child: 'The Bricklayer is lots of fun, plenty smart, and great escapist reading. And Steve Vail is a magical agent. If I had my way, I'd read stuff like this every minute I'm not on deadline.' Seymour Hersh : From the Author: You were an FBI agent for twenty years and your intimate knowledge of the Bureau lends unusual authenticity to Steve Vail's characters and the novel's investigative details. Have your former colleagues read The Bricklayer and did they recognize their world in it? : Agents who have read my books tend to thank me for my vengeful mistreatment of Bureau managers, who are the ever-present obstacles for my heroes. Just like real life. Vail's strength is his disregard for authority and ability to think outside of the box. : Do you see yourself in Steve Vail? : I see myself as a very average person who was raised by a very pragmatic British-born grandmother. Her common sense helped me develop my ability to solve problems creatively. : Were any of the other characters in The Bricklayer based on your former colleagues? : Vail's partner, Deputy Assistant Director Kate Bannon, is rather sexy... Kate is a composite of a number of women agents and policewomen who I have known. Most of characters are amalgams of people I have encountered in my life. : Did you plot out every twist and turn in the novel, and there are quite a few of those, before you began to write and did your characters ever surprise you? : No, I more or less let the plot unravel as I go along. I'm always surprised when I hear a writer say that the characters surprise them. I have had the advantage of knowing the best and worst in the human race and pretty much know what my characters strengths and weaknesses are as soon as their name hits the page. The mysterious organization that is blackmailing the FBI, the Rubaco Pentad, comes up with some ingenious and potentially lethal instructions for Vail to follow. : Are you a fan of cryptic puzzles yourself? : I've always liked puzzles. I think that's why I always like math--not that I was very good at it--I just liked the challenge. Figuring out a puzzle has always been a small accomplishment for me. : Had you always wanted to be a writer? What made you start writing The Bricklayer? : I never gave any thought to being a writer until I was retiring from the FBI. In fact, at one point in college, I failed English. I started writing to let the public know what was happening inside the Bureau. : Which authors have inspired your work? : My favorite writer has always been John Steinbeck. However, I don't really read much in my genre. My favorite thriller of all time is The Day of the Jackal. Besides the realistic and overwhelming plot, it is still the best-written thriller I have read. I usually reread it before starting a new book. The Bricklayer is, I hope, the first of many books featuring Steve Vail. : Without spoiling the plot too much, please could we have a sneak preview of what he gets up to next? : Vail flies to Washington, D.C. to spend New Year's Eve with Kate. However there's been a kidnapping of a seven-year-old boy that has to be resolved first. (And that's just the first chapter.) Then the director of the FBI summons the two of them to work on an extremely complex spy case, one in which Vail cleverly finds all the answers, which unfortunately results in Kate being arrested for treason.

The China scenes are fast paced and strikingly atmospheric, and Ellie's backstory--her and Trey's return from combat is tough, sad, and endearing--is given in doses that perfectly complement the central action ... The book's exotic setting and tough heroine will definitely appeal to fans of Stieg Larsson' Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review : 'A remarkable debut by Lisa Brackman' Seattle Times : 'Lisa Brackman's debut novel is as slick and smart as an alley cat ... The result is a wildly original read ... Even more remarkable is her enfant terrible protagonist: 26-year-old Ellie is tough, snarky and immensely likeable. Through her voice Brackman never falls into the trite and tired trap of so many foreigners who write about an 'exotic' China. Beijing in Year of the Tiger is as it is in real life' Time Out: Beijing : 'A gripping ex-pat nightmare that unfolds with superb pacing ... it makes you damned glad your life is boring' Miami Herald : 'Brackman's experience in the motion picture industry is evident. A gritty and intriguing tale of terror that draws in the reader with each page; Brackman is a new writer to watch' Library Journal : About the Author: Lisa Brackman has worked as an executive at a major motion picture studio, an issues researcher in a presidential campaign, and as the singer-songwriter & bassist in an LA rock band.

BROOKMYRE, CHRISTOPHER
Be My Enemy
Abacus, UK. First Edition, Softcover. Very Good Condition. 9780349116815 416 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.
