Dean R. Koontz 77 Shadow Street [Kindle Edition] Pbk published January 2012 by Harper at £10.99 ISBN: B005S9PNDW


Heart-stopping thriller from the master of suspense. Bad things are starting to happen at the Pendleton, an eerie building with a tragic past.
The Pendleton stands on the summit of Shadow Hill, a palace built in the late 19th century as a tycoon’s dream home. But its grandeur has been scarred by episodes of madness, suicide and mass murder. Since being converted into luxury apartments in the 70s, however, the Pendleton has been at peace. For its fortunate residents – among them ex-marine Bailey Hawk, songwriter Twyla Trahern and her young son Winny – the Pendleton is a sanctuary, its dark past all but forgotten.
But now inexplicable shadows caper across walls, security cameras relay impossible images, phantom voices mutter in strange tongues, not-quite-human figures lurk in the basement, elevators plunge into unknown depths. It seems that whatever drove past occupants to their unspeakable fates is at work again.
As nightmare visions become real, a group of extraordinary individuals hold the key to humanity’s destiny. Welcome to 77 Shadow Street.

Giles Kristian Raven: Odin's Wolves (Raven 3) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published January 2012 by Transworld Digital at £4.17 ISBN: B004TSW2YQ


We lusted for an even greater prize: one that can never be lost or stolen or burnt...
Raven and his fellow Vikings have suffered. Good men have died. Hard-won treasure has been lost. But for these Norsemen, there is something more precious than gold or silver, and that is fame - for this is what a warrior leaves behind when he has breathed his last.
And so the brotherhood sail for Constantinople, the city they call Miklagard. There, it is rumoured, both riches and glory are to be found, but the journey takes them through unknown and dangerous waters - from the wind-whipped marshes of the Camargue to the treachery and faded glory of a once-mighty Rome.
For Raven and the Wolfpack there is a high price to pay for the fame they seek. Miklagard's streets may seem paved with gold, but they also run with blood . . .

Having Viking ancestors himself, Giles Kristian believes that the story of Raven has always been in his blood. Inspired by both his family history and his storytelling heroes, Bernard Cornwell and Conn Iggulden, Giles began writing this thrilling tale of an English boy's coming of age amongst a band of marauding warriors from across the grey seas. Raven: Blood Eye was published to great acclaim and two further adventures have followed. Giles lives in Leicestershire where he writes full-time. To find out more, visit www.gileskristian.com

Stieg Larsson The Expo Files [Kindle Edition] Pbk published March 2012 by Maclehose Press at £8.40 ISBN: B0074VPI5A


With an introduction by Tariq Ali. Now almost exclusively known as the author of the bestselling Trilogy, as a professional journalist Stieg Larsson was an untiring crusader for democracy and equality. As a reporter and editor-in-chief on the journal Expo he researched the extreme right both in Sweden and at an international level. Collected here for the first time are essays and articles on right-wing extremism and racism, on violence against women and women's rights, on homophobia and honour killings. Included also is an account written for Vagabond magazine of his travels aboard the Trans-Siberian Express from Moscow to Beijing. His most important writings - perceptive, learned and committed texts - illustrate the breadth of his journalistic and political activities in connection with matters that were closest to his heart, and to which he devoted his life. Despite death threats and financial difficulties, Larsson never ceased to fight for and write about his most firmly held principles; it was his commitment to these which gave his best-selling novels their explosive force.

Stieg Larsson was the founder and editor-in-chief of the anti-racist magazine Expo and an acknowledged expert on right-wing extremist organisations. He died in 2004, soon after delivering the text of the novels that make up the Millennium Trilogy. Daniel Poohl succeeded Stieg Larsson as editor-in-chief of the journal Expo. He is also a member of the jury for the newly established Stieg Larsson Prize. Laurie Thompson is the distinguished translator of the novels of Henning Mankell and Håkan Nesser.

Giulio Leoni The Third Heaven Conspiracy [Kindle Edition] Pbk published March 2012 by Vintage Digital at £5.00 ISBN: B0077D8OTW


It was Italy, June, 1300. In a disused church on the outskirts of Florence, the master craftsman, Ambrogio, is found murdered at the foot of an unfinished mosaic. A young Dante Alighieri, (future author of "The Divine Comedy") the recently elected Prior to the City of Florence, is called upon to investigate. He discovers that the church was in the process of being renovated as a university, at the behest of the new Pope, Bonifacius VIII. Closer inspection reveals catacombs beneath the floor, populated with beggars and thieves who speak of witchcraft and satanic practices held above. Meanwhile, the Church, on learning of Dante's involvement, begins to show an unusual interest in Ambrogio's fate. But, Dante has one further lead; Ambrogio belonged to a society of learned men, The Third Heaven. Dante learns they are in Florence for the founding of the new university, and believes that if he can infiltrate this group he may learn the significance of Ambrogio's work; maybe the key to the murder is the mosaic itself. Leoni sets this clever dark-ages thriller in a city on edge, nervously recovering from civil war. Medieval Florence is portrayed with stunning clarity; a city on the cusp of the Renaissance, in which new learning - in the guise of Dante - takes on the dark forces of old. "The Third Heaven Conspiracy" is a breathtaking and authentic whodunit from a country re-known for religious intrigue and mystery.

Here, in his first and most baffling case, the eighteen year old reporter astounds readers with his audacity and ingenuity. Who could have tried to murder Mademoiselle Stangerson, beautiful daughter of a famous radium scientist ? And how could they have entered and escaped from a completely locked and watched room ? With the Surete s top sleuth vying against him, Rouletabille is determined to prove only he can solve the case. This classic work of French detective fiction was much admired by Agatha Christie. As a connoisseur of the detective story she said this was one of the best . Others would praise it even more highly than that.

The Mystery of the Yellow Room is one of the classics of early 20th century detective fiction. At the heart of the novel is the enigma: how could a murder take place in a locked room, which shows no sign of being entered?

Robert Low The Kingdom Series - The Lion at Bay (Kingdom 2) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published February 2012 by HarperCollins at £8.99 ISBN: B0061RRMTS


A NATION WILL FIGHT FOR ITS FREEDOM.
Scotland in turmoil. Robert Low at his best.
William Wallace fled to France after his defeat at the Battle of Falkirk, which ended his rebellion against the English King. He would have been slain at Falkirk but for the courage of Hal of Herdmanston, whose home was razed in reprisal by King Edward – but who has become a follower of the Earl of Carrick, known as the Bruce, now a friend of the English.
The Bruce is playing a dangerous game in submitting to Edward since his own ambition, fostered by his auld reprobate grandfather, is to be the King of Scotland. But bitter rivalry amongst the Scots nobility is as grave an obstacle to its independence as the forces of the English Edward Longshanks, and the Bruce has powerful rivals.
Wallace has returned home, though he still faces betrayal from his own. His loyalty is to the previous king, John Baliol, a prisoner of the Pope. Knights Templar, Cathar heretics, and a Curse laid on the Bruce’s family all conspire against Robert, as well as Edward’s forces. Murder and treachery will be crucial weapons in the long and bloody rise of the Bruce to his coronation.

Robert Low has been a journalist and writer since the age of 17. He covered the wars in Vietnam, Sarajevo, Romania and Kosovo until common-sense and the concerns of his wife and daughter prevailed.
To satisfy his craving for action, having moved to an area rich in Viking tradition, he took up re-enactment, joining The Vikings. He now spends summers fighting furiously in helmet and mail in shieldwalls all over Britain and winters training hard.
He lives in Scotland with his wife.

William Luhr Film Noir (New Approaches to Film Genre) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published March 2012 by WileyBlackwell at £17.95 ISBN: B006VIG572


Film Noir is the first book to survey this delightfully depraved—and highly popular—cinematic world, populated by shady characters flawed by moral imperfections. The volume provides a valuable overview of the historical evolution of this genre; it teases out the critical debates over generic and stylistic elements, and charts film noir from its inception in the post–War period through to contemporary times. From Double Indemnity to Devil With a Blue Dress, Murder, My Sweet to Mulholland Falls and Woman at the Window to Usual Suspects, Film Noir enables readers to move chronologically through a cinematic world at once shadowy and seductive.
Luhr brings together a range of perspectives on a topic that has been widely discussed but remains notoriously vague. He explores the relationship between the films of the 1940s and 1950s that established the "noir" universe and the more recent films in which it has been frequently revived. The result is a text that brings a thorough and engaging analysis of this popular area of film studies for both for students and scholars.

William Luhr is Professor of English at St. Peter's College, Co–Chair of the Columbia University Seminar on Cinema and Interdisciplinary Interpretation, and Standing Editor of the Oxford University Press Online Bibliography on Cinema and Media Studies. He is the editor of The Coen Brothers’ Fargo (2004) and The Maltese Falcon: John Huston, Director (1995) and the author of, amongst others, Screening Genders (with Krin Gabbard, 2008), Thinking About Movies: Watching, Questioning, Enjoying, third edition (co–author with Peter Lehman, 2008) and Raymond Chandler and Film, second edition (1991).

James Quinn McDonagh Knuckle [Kindle Edition] Pbk published February 2012 by Collins at £8.99 ISBN: B0061RRQ9E


Irish travellers live in a closed community. What we think we know about them is based on hearsay, rumour and stereotype. But not any more. >BR> Knuckle is the true story of James Quinn McDonagh – clan head and champion bare-knuckle fighter. It’s a journey from his grandfather’s horse-drawn caravan at the side of the road to the country lanes of Ireland where he stood, fists bloodied and bandaged, fighting a clan war that he never asked for.
Two men, two neutral referees, a country lane. No gloves, no biting, no rests. The last man standing wins, takes home the money, and more importantly, the bragging rights.
Caught in a brutal cycle of violence that has left men dead, houses burned and lives destroyed, James tells a story that opens up a hidden world – revealing why history repeats itself, and why he can never go home…

James Quinn McDonagh was born in Ireland in 1967. He spent the early years of his life living the traditional way of Irish Travellers, in a horse-drawn barrel-top wagon, sleeping in a tent by the side of the road. To combat bullying both inside and outside the travelling community, he took up boxing. The traveller’s life took priority though and at the age of sixteen he left Dublin for England with his family, interrupting a promising career in the ring before it had taken off. Forced to flee London after a confrontation that led to a man’s death, the family returned to Ireland but the feud followed. The feud has left James himself shot, men dead, houses burned out and lives destroyed. James no longer lives in Ireland, and has moved abroad to escape the violence. He is married, with two sons and a grandchild.

Jill McGown's latest brain-teasing novel featuring DCI Lloyd and DI Hill

When Andrew Cope and his ex-policewoman wife Kathy - proprietors of an unsuccessful detective agency, up to their necks in debt and on the verge of losing their home - are found dead in their fume-filled car, there are few who doubt that they have simply taken the easy way out, and DCI Lloyd has to go out on a very insubstantial limb when he treats the death as suspicious.
The murder that follows hot on the heels of that apparent suicide vindicates his
obstinacy - or does it! As the body count rises Lloyd finds himself still out on that limb looking for a murderer that everyone else believes is dead.

'Satisfying, tightly knit whodunit with exophthalmic final twist.' Guardian

Christine McGuire Perfect Victim [Kindle Edition] Pbk published February 2012 by Virgin Digital at £4.99 ISBN: B0063HBMC4


The true story of 'the girl in the box'

This is as compelling a slice of sleazy Americana as you’re likely to come across. It’s the true story of how Colleen Stan was picked up by Cameron and Janice Hooker while hitchhiking and made their sex slave, her submission to her captors finally so total that she never tried to escape, even when she was allowed out to work. The story’s similar to although far less gruesome than that of Fred and Rose West – an apparently normal couple whose escalating sexual obsessions led them to commit heinous crimes. But while Fred and Rose were quintessentially English, Cameron and Janice Hooker couldn’t be anything but American. Perfect Victim is their story, a disturbing look at what lies under the surface of small-town America. From the Back Cover Kidnapping was only the beginning...
Colleen Stan was a sweet-natured, lively twenty-year-old when she set out to hitchhike from her home in Washington to Southern California. Seven years later she emerged from hell, the victim of a bizarre and chilling crime. Cameron and Janice Hooker had literally made her their slave - and forced her to endure all of Cameron's twisted sexual perversions.
During these seven years the Hookers had two children, entertained their friends at home and held down jobs - while Colleen was held captive in a coffin-like box under their bed.
This is also the story of Christine McGuire, a young, inexperienced deputy district attorney who prosecuted Cameron Hooker for kidnapping and successfully explained why Colleen - who had numerous chances to escape - stayed captive for so many years.

Andrew Miller Pure [Kindle Edition] Pbk published January 2012 by Hodder at £9.99 ISBN: B0052RMN1U


A year of bones, of grave-dirt, relentless work. Of mummified corpses and chanting priests.
A year of rape, suicide, sudden death. Of friendship too. Of desire. Of love...
A year unlike any other he has lived.
Deep in the heart of Paris, its oldest cemetery is, by 1785, overflowing, tainting the very breath of those who live nearby. Into their midst comes Jean-Baptiste Baratte, a young, provincial engineer charged by the king with demolishing it.
At first Baratte sees this as a chance to clear the burden of history, a fitting task for a modern man of reason. But before long, he begins to suspect that the destruction of the cemetery might be a prelude to his own.

Andrew Miller was born in Bristol in 1960. He has lived in Spain, Japan, Ireland and France, and currently lives in Somerset.

It is Glasgow in 1990. Paddy Meehan is home alone when there's a knock at the door. It's the police and they have bad news. Former boyfriend Terry Patterson's naked body has been found in a ditch. He's been tortured, hooded, then shot through the head: all hallmarks of an IRA assassination. Paddy is devastated: Terry was her first lover; the sort of journalist she's always aspired to be. But why have the police come to her? Although she and Terry have had an on/off affair since they first worked together in the 1980s, she hasn't seen him for over a year. She is therefore horrified to find that not only has Terry named her next of kin, but he has left her a huge Georgian house in Ayrshire and several suitcases full of notes. What was Terry trying to tell her? As Paddy begins her investigation into his death, she realises that if the secret he was about to expose was worth killing for, she is next in line...

Denise Mina is the author of the Garnethill trilogy, the first of which, Garnethill, won the John Creasy Dagger for best first novel.

Denise Mina The Dead Hour (Paddy Meehan 2) [Kindle Edition] Pbk published March 2012 by Orion at £4.99 ISBN: B0074AM2WI


Paddy Meehan, Glasgow's youngest aspiring journalist, cruises the dark city on a perpetual night shift, chasing police calls for a story to promote her out of a twilight existence that makes Mars bars and coffee a medical necessity. With her father and brothers unemployed, and her upright Roman Catholic family perilously short of money, she needs the work.
The domestic dispute at a house in a wealthy suburb seems like nothing unusual - at first. The blonde in the shadows bleeding from a head injury doesn't want any help; and the well-dressed man at the front door tells Paddy everything's fine, and that she should leave.
And then he slips her a crisp £50 note to keep the story out of the paper.
By the next morning the woman is dead; she's been tortured first, beaten, and left to die.The untraceable man was neither her boyfriend nor her husband, and Paddy can't understand why the woman passed up the chance to walk through the door and live.
Paddy's found the story she's dreamed about, but she'll lose all credibility if the word gets out about her bribe. The police who attended the call are twisting the evidence for reasons of their own. Only Paddy cares enough to pursue a dark and brutal truth that could make her career - or kill her.

Denise Mina was an academic before she came to crime writing: she taught criminology while studying for a PhD. Her début novel, Garnethill, won the John Creasy Dagger and a stand alone novel, Sanctum, followed before she began the Paddy Meehan series. In between novels she has babies, writes articles and short stories, a play (Ida Tamson) and has recently finished a run as the writer of 'Hellblazer' for DC Comics. Her first graphic novel A Sickness in the Family is due out in 2007. To fit it all in she has given up changing out of her pyjamas, eating cooked food and depilitation.

Unless Harriot can come up with grounds for an appeal in two weeks' time, Susie will be given a life sentence, depriving her of her home, her family and her two-year-old daughter. Harriot is convinced that his wife, a respected forensic psychiatrist, is innocent, and each night climbs the stairs to Susie's study where he goes through her papers, laboriously transcribing onto his computer her case notes, her interviews with Gow and his new wife Donna, and the press cuttings from the trial. But his search for the truth soon raises more questions than answers. Why had Susie stolen a set of prison files and then lied about it? What was the precise nature of her relationship with Gow? And, most importantly, what is it in her study that she doesn't want her husband to find? As the documents on Harriot's computer begin to multiply, his perception of what really happened between Gow and Susie becomes ever more complex. But first he must decide what he's to do with a discovery that involves violence, sexual obsession, lust and ultimate betrayal.

A virulent disease rips across the face of the planet, killing billions of people in less than twenty-four hours. A small group of survivors cower in fear in the desolate remains of a silent city. As the full extent of the devastation caused by the disease is revealed the desperate people fight to keep thousands upon thousands of plague victims at bay and to continue to survive from day to day. They fight to stay alive.
The unexpected appearance of a company of soldiers again threatens the survivor's fragile existence. Do they trust this sudden military presence? Will the military bring them hope and answers, or just more fear, pain and destruction?
Far more than an ordinary sequel, AUTUMN: THE CITY expands on the nightmare of the first novel and takes the reader closer to discovering what caused the death of billions of people on a single inauspicious September day.

David Moody was born in 1970 and grew up in Birmingham on a diet of trashy horror and pulp science fiction books and movies. He worked as a bank manager and as operations manager for a number of financial institutions before giving up the day job to write about the end of the world for a living.

Film rights to HATER have been bought by Guillermo del Toro (HELLBOY, PAN'S LABYRINTH) and Mark Johnson (producer of the CHRONICLES OF NARNIA films). Moody lives in the Midlands with his wife and a houseful of daughters and stepdaughters, which may explain his pre-occupation with Armageddon.

Gary Mulgrew Gang of One [Kindle Edition] Pbk published February 2012 by Hodder at £8.99 ISBN: B006UF6SPK


GANG OF ONE is the remarkable true story of one man's journey from a Glasgow orphanage to a notorious gang-infested prison in Texas. Driven by his desire to return to his son in England and haunted by the increasingly frustrating search for his missing daughter, Gary Mulgrew attempts the impossible task of surviving the prison's gang culture.
Told with wit and humanity, GANG OF ONE shows a man constantly confronted by the moral and physical challenges of prison life, where everyone is encouraged to turn their back and 'see nuthin''.
Gary's choice - to walk away and let a man die, or intervene and lose the chance to get home - makes GANG OF ONE a book as unforgettable as it is enthralling.

Gary Mulgrew was born in Glasgow in 1962 and lived there until he graduated from the University of Strathclyde. He joined NatWest Bank in 1983 and worked for them in Manchester, London, Tokyo and New York before joining the Royal Bank of Canada in 2000. His banking career ended in June 2002 when, he was indicted by the US authorities for allegedly defrauding NatWest. After years of court battles and a high profile public campaign, he and two other members of the 'NatWest Three' were eventually extradited to America. Two years of detention in Houston, Texas were followed by two years in seven different prisons in the United States and England until his full release in early 2010. He now runs a number of successful businesses in the south of England, supported by his bankers, NatWest.

Manuel Munoz What You See in the Dark [Kindle Edition] Pbk published January 2012 by Duckworth at £11.49 ISBN: B006OK9FCE


A tense literary thriller set against the backdrop of Hitchcock's 'Psycho'. Bakersfield, California in the late 1950s is a dusty, quiet town too far from Los Angeles to share that city's energy yet close enough to Hollywood to fill its citizens with the kind of dreams they discover in the darkness of the movie theatre. For Teresa, an aspiring singer working at a shoe store, dreams lie in the music of love and longing her mother shared with her. In Dan Watson, the most desirable young man in town, she thinks she has found someone to help realize her dreams. When a famous actress arrives from Hollywood with a great and already legendary director, local gossip about Teresa and Dan gives way to speculation about the celebrated visitors, there to work on what will become an iconic, groundbreaking film of madness and murder at a roadside motel. No one anticipates how the ill-fated love affair between Dan and Teresa will soon rival anything the director could ever put on the screen. This is a thoroughly original work within the great tradition of noir, captivating in its juxtapositions of tenderness and menace, violence and regret, played out in a town on the brink of change.

Manuel Munoz was born in 1972 and went to Harvard University. He has published two short story collections, and received a National Endowment for the Arts literature fellowship, and the prestigious Whiting Writers' Award. Find him online at www.manuel-munoz.com.
