Undercover enforcer Sean Dillon tackles a new crisis as Presidential skeletons threaten to burst from the closet – in the dramatic new thriller from the master of suspense, the author of the international bestsellers Day of Reckoning, Edge of Danger and Midnight Runner. In the waning days of World War II, Hitler gave his diary to a young aide for safekeeping. Now it’s threatening to resurface, with explosive contents: the details of a meeting between emissaries of Hitler and Roosevelt to reach an armistice and turn their collective efforts against the Soviet Union. The American representative: a close relative of none other than the current US President, Jake Cazalet. Powerful enemies of Cazalet will do anything to get their hands on that diary – and it is up to White House operative Blake Johnson, together with his colleague in British intelligence, Sean Dillon, to make sure they don’t… Filled with hairpin twists and high-tension action, with characters as dark and surprising as any he has created, this is Jack Higgins working at the peak of his powers.

White House operative Blake Johnson and his opposite number in British Intelligence, Sean Dillon, set out to trace the source of the havoc, but behind the first man lies another, and behind him another still. And that man is not pleased by the interference. Soon he will target them all: Johnson, Dillon, Dillon’s colleagues. And one of them will fall…

A death in Brooklyn sends reverberations around the world in Jack Higgins's thrilling new adventure.



Higgins's novels of honor, bravery, and irresistible intrigue delight millions of readers every year, but few of his books pack the sheer narrative power of Day of Reckoning.



"Katherine Johnson was a couple of feet under dark green water. Her arms floated to each side, her legs were open, the eyes stared into eternity. There was a look of surprise on her face and she was achingly beautiful in death."



Journalist Katherine Johnson made the mistake of getting too close to the secrets of international crime boss Jack Fox -- but Fox made the mistake of killing her. Katherine's ex-husband is Blake Johnson, head of the clandestine White House department known as The Basement, and with the President's permission, the former FBI agent is about to take revenge. Wherever the money trail leads -- New York, England, Ireland, the Middle East -- Johnson and his Irish colleague, Sean Dillon, plan to hit Fox where it hurts the most, by cutting his illegal businesses to shreds, until Fox stands defenseless before his enemies.

But Fox did not become powerful by letting his enemies get that close. If Johnson and Dillon want to take him on, they will have to face his own brand of revenge. And it is a revenge every bit as deadly as their own.

обложка книги El Ojo Del Huracan El Ojo Del Huracan

Una feroz guerra subterránea… y el más audaz de los atentados. Sean Dillon es un asesino. Quizá su atracción por la violencia surgiera de la convicción política cuando formó parte del IRA. Pero ya ha perdido las referencias y los escrúpulos. Dillon es un sicario, un carísimo sicario. Tan caro que sólo un magnate iraquí del petróleo puede pagarle. Son los tiempos de la guerra del Golfo, y un magnicidio puede afectar el equilibrio de los aliados. Se trata de un extraordinario desafío, que sólo Dillon puede abordar. Y él mismo fijará el blanco: el primer ministro británico, John Major.

La minuciosa preparación del golpe, los ciegos esfuerzos del servicio secreto por evitarlo, forman el nudo de una obra tan inteligente como trepidante. La maestría de Jack Higgins -de quien Grijalbo ha publicado Ha llegado el águila y El águila emprende el vuelo- alcanza en esta obra la máxima sutileza, energía y verosimilitud.

  •  Sleeping Beauties
     King Stephen, King Owen
     Фантастика, Ужасы и Мистика, Детективы и Триллеры, Триллер, Мистика

    In this spectacular father/son collaboration, Stephen King and Owen King tell the highest of high-stakes stories: what might happen if women disappeared from the world of men?

    In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep: they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent. And while they sleep they go to another place, a better place, where harmony prevails and conflict is rare.

    One woman, the mysterious “Eve Black,” is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Eve a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain? Abandoned, left to their increasingly primal urges, the men divide into warring factions, some wanting to kill Eve, some to save her. Others exploit the chaos to wreak their own vengeance on new enemies. All turn to violence in a suddenly all-male world.

    Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison, Sleeping Beauties is a wildly provocative, gloriously dramatic father-son collaboration that feels particularly urgent and relevant today.

    Review

    “This delicious first collaboration between Stephen King and his son Owen is a horror-tinged realistic fantasy that imagines what could happen if most of the women of the world fall asleep, leaving men on their own. The authors’ writing is seamless and naturally flowing. Once the action begins, [SLEEPING BEAUTIES] barrels along like a freight train.” (Publishers Weekly)

    “Another horror blockbuster, Mercedes and all, from maestro King and his heir apparent… In a kind of untold Greek tragedy meets Deliverance meets—well, bits of Mr. Mercedes and The Shawshank Redemption, perhaps—King and King, father and son, take their time putting all the pieces into play: brutish men, resourceful women who've had quite enough, alcohol, and always a subtle sociological subtext, in this case of rural poverty and dreams sure to be dashed… A blood-splattered pleasure.” (Kirkus (starred review))

    “Following the renewed interest in Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and an increasing climate of wolf-whistle politics, this examination of gender stereotypes, systems of oppression, and pervasive misogyny within American culture feels especially timely… The large cast of characters allows for a multitude of narrative perspectives—from both the affected women and the men they’ve left behind. Violent, subversive, and compulsively readable. The true horror of this father-son-penned novel derives more from its unflinchingly realistic depiction of hatred and violence against women than from the supernatural elements.” (Library Journal)

Она своя в мире столичного шоу-бизнеса, подруга и конкурентка завтрашних жертв. Достаточно ли силен ее дар, чтобы опередить того, кто ей снится и кого обычные люди считают серийным маньяком? Сможет ли она избавить мир от темных сущностей и спасти красоту, украденную безумцем? И может ли она доверять тому единственному, кто вызвался ей помочь?

    «Если бы она только могла их как-то предупредить! Тех, кого видит во сне…

    Но во сне Сандугаш никогда не была собой. Она была жертвами. Ими всеми. И бесполезно, наверняка бесполезно искать в Интернете эту рыжую Анну. В рыжий она выкрасилась в день смерти. Какого цвета волосы у нее были до того – Сандугаш не знает. А главное – о пропавших взрослых редко пишут. Вот про детей – да. А про взрослых – только если родственники поднимают переполох. Но чтобы искать, надо хотя бы знать, какой это город… Где знаменитый кремль? Кроме Москвы?»
