The Lost Kingdom
by David Leadbeater

Matt Drake Book 10

The Lost Kingdom is the latest in the breathtaking Matt Drake series, packed with enough action to keep you reading long into the night. These books should be read in the correct order.

In 1945 China’s greatest treasure, the ancient fossilised remains of the Peking Man, disappeared, last known location: Singapore. At the same time a US submarine torpedoed and destroyed a Japanese sub, the Awa Maru, even though it was sailing as a hospital ship and carrying billions of dollars of gold and other strategic valuables.

Now, a secret mountain vault and the Smithsonian archives are being raided by a crazy Irish gang known as the 27 Club, working for a powerful global secret enemy. Ancient treasures are stolen, including the indecipherable Niven Tablets, once thought to show the way to a lost kingdom even greater than Atlantis.

Matt Drake and his team are beset on two fronts. Desperate, he races with Torsten Dahl and Alicia Myles to Japan as the deadly Yakuza organisation is hours away from executing Mai Kitano—a heroic, last-ditch rescue attempt their only chance.

With the quest for the Lost Kingdom underway, and the Chinese government being blackmailed for a cutting edge, all-empowering hacking device that could bring the civilised world to its knees, the entire SPEAR team, the Yakuza and the 27 Club finally stand ready to meet on the top floor of a wealthy hotel in Hong Kong in a battle that could bring the world to its knees. The latest Matt Drake adventure and its overpowering finale guarantees you will lose sleep!

CSI East Coast Episode III
by
Roger Grubbs

DescriptionThe beautiful and brilliant CSI Agent Samantha Powers (Sam) along with her partner Jonathan West, a best selling novelist, are at it again. This time the stakes are higher than ever with bodies showing up daily. The only problem, law enforcement has a suspect but no way to prove it.

What begins as an apparent homicide turns out to be something totally unexpected. Before long bodies are showing up, and Sam is convinced they are all connected. While there are witnesses, something strange happens to each and every one of them.

Certain the city will panic if the killer isn’t stopped immediately, the mayor places the job of solving this crime squarely on Sam’s shoulders. Now under pressure and with the help of dedicated police officers, she and her partner work around the clock.

Before long they realize this serial killer is always one step ahead of the law. The only DNA evidence left at the scene matches the victim—until they finally get a big break. Minute amounts of skin found under the fingernail of a young woman reveal another source, a male. Now with a suspect in their sights, they set a trap; but what happens next will totally blow them away. See if you can follow the leads, but be prepared for a few surprises as you join us in this search for the elusive killer in CSI East Coast Episode III.


Sabre City
by
James Paddock

DescriptionAfter 8 years Zechariah Price assumes it is all behind him. Nightmares filled with huge sabre-toothed cats and women screaming still leave him in cold sweats, though less often. He had lost an eye the first time around; Tanya had fractured her back; their marriage had petered on the brink. There was no way he or any of his family was going to set foot in that Montana wilderness again. His 16-year-old daughter, however, decides otherwise and, in hopes of finding out what all the fuss was about when she was just a child, runs off to visit a Montana woman she found in a chat room. She discovers a lot more than she could have imagined, including who her father really was and how much she had inherited from him.

Deceived
by
L.A. Starkey

DescriptionThey say a soul is the immaterial essence, the animating principle, the actuating cause of an individual life. But what if you had to share yours with the one person you hated the most? The soul mate principle states that for every one soul there is another that will recognize its match, hence creating the perfect union. But what if you had two soul mates, which would you choose? What if your choices had eternal ramification?

The Briton and the Dane
by
Mary Ann Bernal

DescriptionKing Alfred the Great has thwarted the Viking threat against his kingdom of Wessex. Signing a treaty with the formidable Danish King Guthrum, he succeeds in pushing the heathen army back to the rolling fens of East Anglia. An uneasy peace holds sway: The King establishes a standing army under Lord Richard, who takes command of the citadel at Wareham. Richard and his army are accompanied by his daughter, Gwyneth, an impetuous and reckless young woman – at once striking, intellectually gifted, but dangerously vain and imprudent.

Slow Falling
by
George Wier

DescriptionWhen the old man who is covered in dirt walks into the country honky-tonk and says "The Falling", right before dropping dead, Bill Travis has to penetrate the gathering dark cloak of secrecy surrounding his death and get to the truth before a team of nuclear regulators can rake the entire incident under the carpet. Bill, with his former partner, Hank Sterling, who has now been "recalled to life", must make a mad dash across the desolate West Texas landscape to save the life of Moe Keithley, a Harley-riding bankruptcy lawyer who is in over his head and may very well be the most radioactive man in the Northern Hemisphere.

by
Penny Childs
