WHAT'S IN THE BOX? EVERYONE'S DYING TO KNOW. An international crisis threatens to plunge the world into war at the dawn of the Twentieth Century, but the British Foreign Office finds itself blinded by the bizarre deaths of crucial agents and informants as it struggles to stave off the coming conflagration. For help, they turn to an unconventional outsider, Inspector Jenkins of Scotland Yard, who soon finds himself on the trail of a mysterious man with a deadly black box and a host of devoted accomplices. Innocents transform into monsters. Men of God become agents of destruction. Good men rise from the flames of damnation to become soldiers in the coming apocalypse. The Man with the Black Box is a terrifying examination of the corruptibility of mankind, a riveting twist on the classic battle of good versus evil, and a fantasy thriller of historic proportions.
Olivia Calabrese struggles to deal with the fact that her boyfriend Brice turns into a berserker—rage-filled monster—every night at midnight, and that if she ever has sex with him, she’ll turn into one too. When she’s not busy looking for a cure (that everyone claims doesn’t exist) for the berserker virus, she’s trying to deal with the threats her mob boss father Lucio levels against her newly formed jettatori “family.” If that weren’t enough, it’s becoming clear that Tommy, her mentor and friend, is a double-agent for Lucio, feeding information to Lucio so that he can try to kill her with armies of berserkers. And to make matters even worse, her right-hand man Josh seems to be developing a crush on her, something that Brice is not particularly happy about.
As an 18-year-old, John Urwin was posted to Cyprus, where he was recruited into a top-secret unit called the Sixteen, whose task was to assassinate key figures throughout the Middle East. Now he breaks his silence to tell their story. Their training was said to have surpassed that of the SAS in unarmed combat and weaponry. His description of their four key missions is explosive and a riveting account of the turbulent 1950s in the Middle East. The Cold War was approaching its height and when there was a mission to be undertaken that no government could be seen to endorse, the Sixteen would do the job. No previous depiction of a military group, in book or movie, has remotely compared to the secrecy, skills, and sheer professionalism of the Sixteen.
A RIP-ROARING, PULSE-POUNDING FLORIDA PUZZLER... “A ripping good yarn … an exciting tale.” —Publishers Weekly “...
an imaginative plot, some rousing action, a black-hearted villain, a cute kid, some gently ironic humor, and a heroine who's appealing without being perfect.” —Booklist As intricate as a fisherman’s net, Riptide fairly writhes with sinister delights—family secrets, family feuds, lost family fortunes, betrayals, puzzles, sunken treasure… and murder, of course. With a bit of illicit romance and treachery thrown in for seasoning. This rife atmosphere swirls around New york artist Isabel Anders, who’s summoned home to tiny St. Elmo, Florida to deal with an emergency: the aunt who raised her has been brutally—and mysteriously—injured. Isabel arrives to find the family mansion in ruins, her aunt living in a trailer, and, dangerous as a cottonmouth, the lover she left at sixteen just where he used to be. Waiting for her. Except now he’s got a grudge against her, a secret of his own, and some unsavory companions. Just when Isabel’s aunt seems to be getting better (but before she’s able to talk again) she dies just as mysteriously as she was injured. Suspecting murder, Isabel quickly ties her aunt’s death to another. But to find the killer, she has to hack her way through a small-town jungle of intrigue and several generations of interrelated secrets, producing hours of pulse-pounding delight for the confirmed puzzle fan. WHO WILL LIKE IT: Fans of Laura Lippman, Kate Atkinson, intelligent cozies like those by G.M. Malliett, Elizabeth Zelvin, and Gillian Roberts, British puzzlemeisters like the great Dorothy L. Sayers herself, all BBC mysteries, and of course, Michaela Thompson’s own Hurricane Season.

El diplomático Enric Mantey aparece muerto en su despacho. La herida de su costado recuerda, para desconcierto de policía y médicos, a la dentellada de un tiburón. Sólo el biólogo y erudito John Baldinger parece capaz de encontrar una respuesta, aunque ello signifique traspasar la frontera de lo creíble y adentrarse en un mundo colmado de misterios extraordinarios, personajes sorprendentes y lugares ocultos entre las sombras de la capital. La Costilla de Caín transporta al lector a las calles del Madrid de principios del s.XX, donde los estrechos callejones y los quinqués a media luz envuelven un misterio tan antiguo como la propia existencia. Una aventura más asombrosa a cada capítulo; una historia fuera de lo corriente.
