This tale opens with a Jack Reacher-esque set-up' SUNDAY TIMES CRIME CLUB (starred review) THE NEW ELVIS COLE AND JOE PIKE THRILLER Joe Pike didn't want to run into trouble that day - he was just going to the bank. But when Isabel, a young teller, is forced into a car by two men, he has no choice but to step in. After chasing them down, he retrieves the terrified woman and the men are arrested. Not long after they are released on bail, the men are found dead, each with a single gunshot wound to the head, and Isabel is missing. After his handling of the men, Pike is a prime suspect, along with Izzy - was this an abduction gone wrong, or did it go exactly how she planned? Pike, convinced that her life is in danger, involves Elvis Cole in a search for the truth, and for Izzy. But they're not the only ones desperate to find her - and desperate men are dangerous. * * * Praise for A Dangerous Man and Robert Crais * * *'Bob is like a Porsche when it comes to writing.

Darkest Truth: She refused to be silenced
_________________________ He'll do anything to protect his secrets. She'll stop at nothing to expose the truth. It only takes one person to break the silence. When solicitor Finn Fitzpatrick is approached by a man to investigate the death of his daughter, her first instinct is to refuse. The father is grieving, and unable to accept that his daughter committed suicide. And yet something about the man's story chimes with Finn. Why did a bright, confident, beautiful young girl suddenly drop out of school? Could the answer lie in her relationship with Ireland's most famous film director? The deeper Finn goes into the case, the more dark, twisted and dangerous the picture becomes. Because these are powerful people she is trying to expose. And they're willing to do anything to keep the truth hidden. _________________________ 'Just finished Darkest Truth by Catherine Kirwan. It's brilliant! A heroine flawed but not in the normal whisky-soaked-my-wife-has-left me way - that takes you on an evocative crime journey through the cut-throughs and cobbles of Cork City. A febulous sleep theif and great read.' - Owen McDonnell, of Killing Eve fame 'A clever twist on the genre.' ARAMINTA HALL, author of Our Kind of Cruelty 'A gripping, twisting novel of mounting suspense. It couldn't be more relevant.' AMY LLOYD, author of The Innocent Wife 'A fast-paced and twisty thriller, with a gutsy protagonist you can't help but root for. It left me breathless.' CLAIRE ASKEW, author of All The Hidden Truths 'The story is told at a propulsive rate, the legal details are persuasive and the dialogue is excellent.' Irish Times 'This is a wonderfully assured debut. While the plot of Darkest Truth may have been suggested by the recent worldwide #MeToo movement, there is little of the 'me too' in its writing because Kirwan delivers her cracking tale in her own distinctive voice. In Finn Fitzpatrick, she has created an immensely likeable, feisty and individual character, and the supporting cast in this intriguing mystery are equally well drawn.' Irish Independent 'Her quest to expose Gill is dark and twisted, but the believability of the characters is undeniable. Powerful writing' Woman

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.

It is 1985, South Africa is rapidly becoming ungovernable and a State of Emergency has been declared. Hope for a peaceful end to apartheid can still be found, but it has dwindled to a flickering candle flame in the encroaching darkness... A knock on the door at midnight; a student on the run from the Special Branch looking for a safe house and transport to the border; a bomb exploding outside the Supreme Court and killing an old man - all come together to confront Cameron Beaumont, a History lecturer under constant surveillance by the security police and subject to regular death threats, with a crisis. How should he respond - torn as he is between his desire to play his part in the struggle against the vicious oppression of apartheid and his need to protect his wife, Jules, and the children he adores? And the death threats turn out to be just the beginning.

From the author of Planetside, a Best Book of 2018 (Library Journal) A military legend is caught in the web between alien intrigue and human subterfuge... Following his mission on Cappa, Colonel Carl Butler returns to a mixed reception. To some he is a do-or-die war hero. To the other half of the galaxy he's a pariah. Forced into retirement, he has resettled on Talca Four where he's now Deputy VP of Corporate Security, protecting a high-tech military company on the corporate battlefield-at least, that's what the job description says. Really, he's just there to impress clients and investors. It's all relatively low risk-until he's entrusted with new orders. A breach of a competitor's computer network has Butler's superiors feeling every bit as vulnerable. They need Butler to find who did it, how, and why no one's taken credit for the ingenious attack. As accustomed as Butler is to the reality of wargames-virtual and otherwise-this one screams something louder than a simple hack. Because no sooner does he start digging when his first contact is murdered, the death somehow kept secret from the media. As a prime suspect, he can't shake the sensation he's being watched...or finally succumbing to the stress of his past. Paranoid delusion or dangerous reality, Butler might be onto something much deeper than anyone imagined. But that's where Butler thrives. If he hasn't signed his own death warrant.

There's no filler, no exposition, just action, dialogue and layering of tension that'll hold you breathless until the very end' Helen Fields Blair Charlston swapped the stock market for salvation - and now he's making a killing. Once a controversial venture capitalist, Charlston reinvented himself as a personal and business development guru after surviving an attempt to take his own life when a business deal went disastrously wrong. So when he decides to host a weekend retreat on the outskirts of Stirling for more than 300 people, Connor Fraser is drafted in to cover the security for a man who is at once idolised as a saviour and hated as a ruthless asset stripper. For Connor, it's an unwelcome assignment. He's never had much time for salvation by soundbite, and Charlston's notoriety is attracting the attention of reporter Donna Blake, who's asking more questions than Connor has answers for. But when an old colleague of Donna's is found brutally bludgeoned to death, and the start of Charleston's weekend of salvation becomes a literal trial by fire, Connor must race to unmask a killer whose savagery is only matched by their cunning. Praise for Neil Broadfoot 'Broadfoot is here, and he's ready to sit at the table with some of the finest crime writers Scottish fiction has to offer' Russel D.

Three-Fifths is the launch title for Agora, the new imprint from Polis Books focused on diverse voices in crime fiction. To date, Agora has received fantastic publicity, including features in Publisher's Weekly, New York Post, BookRiot and Entertainment Weekly. Commensurate to this we expect Three-Fifths to receive review and publicity attention upon publication. Given the extensive coverage, we expect endorsements from major voices in both the crime fiction and literary fields. The theme of a bi-racial man dealing with issues not only of his own racial identity, but white supremacy, touches a cultural nerve we expect to garner off-the-book-page coverage. John Vercher has a strong literary background, and his essays on race have been featured on NPR, and also has an extensive community in the Philadelphia area, where the book is also based. The author will do events in his local area, and other appropriate markets. We will be extensively promoting the Agora launch list in Fall 2019 and Three-Fifths will be promoted heavily as the launch title for the list.

The Order of the Day
'A thoroughly gripping and mesmerising work of black comedy and political disaster' - Guardian Winner of the 2017 Prix Goncourt Eric Vuillard's gripping novel The Order of the Day tells the story of the pivotal meetings which took place between the European powers in the run-up to World War Two. What emerges is a fascinating and incredibly moving account of failed diplomacy, broken relationships, and the catastrophic momentum which led to conflict. The titans of German industry - set to prosper under the Nazi government - gather to lend their support to Adolf Hitler. The Austrian Chancellor realizes too late that he has wandered into a trap, as Hitler delivers the ultimatum that will lay the groundwork for Germany's annexation of Austria. Winston Churchill joins Neville Chamberlain for a farewell luncheon held in honour of Joachim von Ribbentrop: German Ambassador to England, soon to be Foreign Minister in the Nazi government, and future defendant at the Nuremberg trials. Suffused with dramatic tension, this unforgettable novel tells the tragic story of how the actions of a few powerful men brought the world to the brink of war.

American Magic: A Thriller
In this fast-paced, international thriller, chaos erupts after a shadowy figure with ties to an elite and ancient society posts incantations on the dark web that allow people to perform real magic. When an enigmatic message uploaded to the dark web turns out to contain an ancient secret giving regular people the power to do impossible things, like levitate cars or make themselves invisible, American government officials panic. They know the demo videos on YouTube and instructions for incantations could turn from fantastical amusement to dangerous weapon at the drop of the hat, and they scramble to keep the information out of the wrong hands. They tap Ben Zolstra, an ex-CIA field operative whose history with the Agency is conflicted at best, to lead the team that's racing to contain the dangerous knowledge--and track down the mysterious figure behind the leak who threatens that even more dangerous spells will be released one by one until the world as we know it no longer exists. This sweeping, globe-spanning thriller explores the dark consequences of a question mankind has been asking for centuries: What if magic were real?

Bloody Genius: Virgil Flowers 12
Virgil Flowers will have to watch his back--and his mouth--as he investigates a college culture war turned deadly in the latest thriller from #1 New York Times-bestseller John Sandford. At the local state university, two feuding departments have faced off on the battleground of PC culture. Each carries their views to extremes that may seem absurd, but highly educated people of sound mind and good intentions can reasonably disagree, right? Then someone winds up dead, and Virgil Flowers is brought in to investigate . . . and he soon comes to realise he's dealing with people who, on this one particular issue, are functionally crazy. Among this group of wildly impassioned, diametrically opposed zealots lurks a killer, and it will be up to Virgil to sort the murderer from the mere maniacs. * * * Praise for John Sandford and the Virgil Flower novels * * * 'John Sandford knows all there is to know about detonating the gut-level shocks of a good thriller' The New York Times Book Review 'Sandford has always been at the top of any list of great mystery writers. His writing and the appeal of his lead character are as fresh as ever' The Huffington Post 'Sandford is consistently brilliant' Cleveland Plain Dealer 'Along the way to the satisfying ending, Virgil displays the rough humor and rough justice that make him such an appealing character' Publishers Weekly on Deep Freeze 'A knowing portrait of small-town life layered into a very well plotted mystery. Virgil understands that, in small towns, no one ever outgrows high school... One of the very best novels in a superior series' Booklist (starred review) on Deep Freeze 'Add a gripping storyline, a generous helping of exquisitely conceived characters and laugh-out-loud humor that produce explosive guffaws, not muted chuckles, and you're in for the usual late-night, don't-even-think-of-stopping treat when Flowers hits town' Richmond Times-Dispatch on Deep Freeze 'An outstanding novel' Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Escape Clause 'Perfect entertainment' Kirkus Reviews on Escape Clause
