Inferno: (Robert Langdon Book 4)
*NOW A MAJOR FILM STARRING TOM HANKS AND FELICITY JONES* `Seek and ye shall find.' With these words echoing in his head, eminent Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon awakes in a hospital bed with no recollection of where he is or how he got there. Nor can he explain the origin of the macabre object that is found hidden in his belongings. A threat to his life will propel him and a young doctor, Sienna Brooks, into a breakneck chase across the city of Florence. Only Langdon's knowledge of hidden passageways and ancient secrets that lie behind its historic facade can save them from the clutches of their unknown pursuers. With only a few lines from Dante's dark and epic masterpiece, The Inferno, to guide them, they must decipher a sequence of codes buried deep within some of the most celebrated artefacts of the Renaissance - sculptures, paintings, buildings - to find the answers to a puzzle which may, or may not, help them save the world from a terrifying threat... Set against an extraordinary landscape inspired by one of history's most ominous literary classics, Inferno is Dan Brown's most compelling and thought-provoking novel yet, a breathless race-against-time thriller that will grab you from page one and not let you go until you close the book.

Jack Reacher walks alone. Once a go-to hard man in the US military police, now he's a drifter of no fixed abode. But the army tracks him down.

This new heartstopping, nailbiting book in Lee Child's number-one bestselling series takes Reacher across the Atlantic to Paris - and then to London.

Make Me

Jack Reacher has no place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, so a remote railroad stop on the prairie with the curious name of Mother's Rest seems perfect for an aimless one-day stopover. He expects to find a lonely pioneer tombstone in a sea of nearly-ripe wheat...but instead there is a woman waiting for a missing colleague, a cryptic note about two hundred deaths, and a small town full of silent, watchful people. Reacher's one-day stopover turns into an open-ended quest leading to the most hidden reaches of the internet, and right into the nightmare heart of darkness. Child's best for some time...with detective-story and romcom elements (even sly humour) on top of the psychological duels and set-piece violence. (Sunday Times).

'A literary masterpiece . . . at once erudite and intimate, reflective and funny . . . it has the grit and pace of a thriller' Daily Telegraph A novel of high adventure, great storytelling and moral purpose, based on an extraordinary true story of eight years in the Bombay underworld. 'In the early 80s, Gregory David Roberts, an armed robber and heroin addict, escaped from an Australian prison to India, where he lived in a Bombay slum. There, he established a free health clinic and also joined the mafia, working as a money launderer, forger and street soldier. He found time to learn Hindi and Marathi, fall in love, and spend time being worked over in an Indian jail. Then, in case anyone thought he was slacking, he acted in Bollywood and fought with the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan . . . Amazingly, Roberts wrote Shantaram three times after prison guards trashed the first two versions. It's a profound tribute to his willpower . . . At once a high-kicking, eye-gouging adventure, a love saga and a savage yet tenderly lyrical fugitive vision.' Time Out

An imposter in MI6, murder, embezzlement, and terrorism, are just four of the hazards that he has to face, as he struggles with the bizarre, in the form of an almost identical twin to himself. When Margaret, Larry's adopted daughter, fails to return from assignment, Larry fears the worst, and thus begins a race against time to ensure that those fears are not realised.

Cometh Evil
The year is 1942. America has, finally, entered the war on the side of beleaguered Britain, bringing to bear its manpower and resources. Winston Churchill has long fought for American involvement, and his dream has been fulfilled. But now comes something to imperil that dream, something with the potential to turn British public opinion against the friendly invaders. American crime, American justice would seem to be straightforward, but the jurisdictional boundaries are crossed, reversed, lost in the maze of murder. An American MP, a Scotland Yard detective and a British officer with close ties to the world of spies and military intelligence together try to unravel the threads, bring murderers to justice. Nothing is straightforward. Neither justice nor retribution. Neither innocence or guilt. The quest takes the three investigators all the way from the British Prime Minister and the American commander, General Eisenhower, to the lowest rungs of the British underworld.

The Hidden Things
A hair-raising, atmospheric thriller from the acclaimed author of the ripping good (The New York Times) novel Three Graves Full, inspired by the real-life unsolved theft of a seventeenth-century painting. Twenty-eight seconds. In less than half a minute, a home-security camera captures the hidden resolve in fourteen-year-old Carly Liddell as she fends off a vicious attack just inside her own front door. The video of her heroic escape appears online and goes viral. As the view count climbs, the lives of four desperate people will be forever changed by what's just barely visible in the corner of the shot. Carly's stepfather is spurred to protect his darkest secret: how a stolen painting--four hundred years old, by a master of the Dutch Golden Age--has come to hang in his suburban foyer. The art dealer, left for dead when the painting vanished, sees a chance to buy back her life. And the double-crossed enforcer renews the hunt to deliver the treasure to his billionaire patrons--even if he has to kill to succeed. But it's Carly herself, hailed as a social-media hero, whose new perspective gives her the courage to uncover the truth as the secrets and lies tear her family apart.

The Seventh Tower
Larry agrees to find the sister of a fifteen year old boy who turns up at his office. Having run away from parents that he claims are abusive, he and his sister had been living rough until she disappeared. Larry visits the boy's parents, in Cromwell's Seat, a village some ten miles outside of London, only to hear that MI6 are investigating suspected espionage centred on the local police station. Dragged reluctantly into that investigation, while trying to solve the disappearance, he is suddenly arrested when the boy's mother is found hanged from the seventh tower of a series of fifteen carrying new power lines. The murder of a constable in an unusual manner, a face seen, and vaguely remembered, an MI6 agent who is not quite as he appears to be, a reluctant traitor, the almost fatal shooting of Penny and the death of someone who had come to be his friend, finally brings everything to a head at the foot of the tower.
