Caleb Mitchell and his friends return in the sequel to the thrilling cyberpunk space opera Birthright! Former military super-commando Cal Mitchell is enjoying the pastoral life on his remote star colony home of Canaan, having put the fight against the Corporate Council behind him. But his past comes back to haunt him when a hired assassin makes an attempt on his life. On the heels of this threat, his old friend and former partner Deke Conner and DSI agent Kara McIntire arrive to warn him of a new conspiracy by old enemies, and this time the stakes are no lower than the fate of the galaxy. The hunt is on for the fabled Northwest Passage, the extra-dimensional pathway that will give its discoverer access to the rest of the universe…and perhaps to the magical technology of the long-lost Predecessors, an ancient race of aliens who left behind an incredible legacy of terraformed worlds and wormhole passages. The quest for the Northwest Passage will take Caleb and his friends and family to the farthest reaches of the Commonwealth and beyond into the unknown, where the prize for success may be an even darker fate than the price of failure. 1.

Wrapped in the Flag chronicles the radical right-wing world of the 1960s, when conspiracy ruled and the John Birch Society made national headlines. The daughter of a John Birch Society leader, Claire Conner introduces us to the extreme ideas of a powerful political fringe group dispensing radical solutions to America´s problems. Following in the footsteps of its hero, Senator Joseph McCarthy, the John Birch Society believed that an international Communist conspiracy was on the verge of taking over the government of the United States. Top politicians, including President Dwight Eisenhower, were labeled as Communist operatives. John F. Kennedy was deemed a Socialist traitor. Birchers fought civil rights, labor unions, environmental protections, Medicare, welfare programs, the United Nations, and even water fluoridation. Today, the society continues many of those same campaigns from its national headquarters in Appleton, Wisconsin. Claire Conner´s intimate account - based on records, documents and her firsthand knowledge - takes us deep inside one of the most radical right-wing movements in U.S. history. Moving seamlessly between memoir and history, humor and pain, past and present, Wrapped in the Flag serves up keen insight into the impact of extremism on one woman, her family and, if unchecked, on our country. 1.

´One hell of a good book´ - Conn Iggulden The Greatcoats - legendary heroes, arbiters of justice . . . or notorious traitors? The Greatcoats are travelling magistrates bringing justice to all . . . or at least they were, before they watched the Dukes impale their King´s head on a spike. Now the land´s heroes are reviled as traitors, their Greatcoats in tatters. Facio, Kest and Brasti have been reduced to working as mercenaries, but when they find their employer dead - and are forced to watch as the killer plants evidence framing them for the murder - they realise things are about to get even worse. For the royal conspiracy that began with overthrowing an idealistic young king is spreading to Rijou, the most corrupt city in the land, and the life of a young girl hangs in the balance. When every noble is a tyrant and every knight is a thug, the only thing you can really trust is a traitor´s blade.
David Churchill´s The Leopards of Normandy trilogy continues with Duke, as William of Normandy inherits his father´s title and assumes command of his lands. Churchill´s style brings to mind the vibrancy of Conn Iggulden and will enthrall fans of Bernard Cornwell and Ben Kane. William the Bastard, boy Duke of Normandy, is alone in a world filled with enemies. His father, Robert, is dead, and the men chosen to protect William are falling prey, one by one, to a conspiracy controlled and manipulated by a man who has spent a lifetime being mocked and ridiculed but now burns with the need to be feared and obeyed. In England two women, equally matched in their beauty, strength and limitless ambition, seek power through their sons. They wield no swords and command no armies, but their struggles for the crown are as bitter as any war. And between them stands Godwin, Earl of Wessex, seeking to build a dynasty that will outlast them all. One day William will join the struggle for dominion over England. But for now he must fight just to survive, to reach manhood and then to impose his will on those who would oppose him. Including the young woman he wants for his wife. 1. Language: English.
