Poised to stand among the great war novels, the harrowing chronicle of a sniper during the Chechen War.“The saboteurs? Holy Christ, what happened? What did you do to deserve that?” a fellow soldier responds when he hears that Nicolai Lilin has been assigned to an unconventional, ultra-high-risk paramilitary unit of the Russian army. Also nicknamed the “para-bats” for the black parachutes that dropped them behind enemy lines at night, Lilin and his fellow “saboteurs” soon find themselves fighting Islamic insurgents armed with American weaponry in the breakaway province of Chechnya.In vivid, harrowing detail, Lilin relays how, under the mind-bending dangers of heavy fire, on unknown terrain, in unpredictable small villages, the only goal is survival. Under the leadership of corrupt generals profiting from the war, his unit develops a camaraderie that is their best hope for staying alive—and staying human. Ultimately, the return to the bland normality of an impersonal society at “peace” might be the hardest struggle of all.Writing with unhindered directness and power, Lilin combines his own experiences as a sniper in Chechnya together with the stories of those he fought beside to forge an autobiographical novel unique in the literature of war. A bestseller in Europe, this novel will remain an unforgettable account of one of the ugliest conflicts of our time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Whitten.

William and Hester become wrapped up in two separate cases - but are they as unconnected as they first seem? Staggering revelations and a shocking murder propel the Monks into fresh dangers in Anne Perry's gripping mystery Death of a Stranger. Perfect for fans of C. J. Sansom and Arthur Conan Doyle.'Few mystery writers this side of Arthur Conan Doyle can evoke Victorian London with such relish for detail and mood' - San Francisco Chronicle Hester Monk's voluntary work in Coldbath Square is increasingly demanding. Every night she tends to a stream of women of the streets who have been injured or become ill as a result of their trade. But the injuries are becoming more serious, and now a body has been discovered in one of the area's brothels. The dead man is none other than the wealthy and respectable Nolan Baltimore, head of Baltimore and Sons, a successful railway company. With calls for the police to clean up the streets, Hester decides she must intervene to protect these women who stand to lose everything. Meanwhile her husband, William Monk, has been approached by Katrina Harcus, who suspects that the company her fiancé works for may be guilty of fraud. That company is Baltimore and Sons. As Monk endeavours to prevent a serious crime, possibly even a tragedy, taking place, he faces some staggering revelations. And with the link between the two cases becoming ever clearer, Monk finds that the time has come to confront his own demons - even if it means losing all that he now holds dear... What readers are saying about Death of a Stranger: 'Anne Perry's 13th addition to the Monk series is fast paced, exciting and as dark as you'd expect''I cannot fault this latest offering from the "Queen of Crime"... I literally couldn't put it down!''A riveting mystery wrapped up in the dark and seamy side of Victorian London'

John Lescroart's latest spectacular New York Times bestseller explores the unexpected and shattering consequences of a one-night stand on a seemingly happily married couple—a 'dark, disturbing, satisfying read' (San Francisco Chronicle) that asks us to consider how much we really know about the lives of our closest friends. Fatal is John Lescroart's most highly acclaimed and biggest selling book in recent years. As the Huffington Post raves, 'Lescroart is a master storyteller as he knows how to craft a plot and how to create fully developed characters. In both of these departments, this book comes across as one of his best works.' When Kate Jameson confesses to her oldest friend, Beth Tully, that she's obsessing about a married man she just met, Beth is alarmed. As a San Francisco police detective, Beth has seen time and again the destructive repercussions of infidelity. But Kate, despite her happy marriage and two wonderful children, can't get Peter Ash out of her head and initiates one intense sexual encounter. Confident that her life can now return to normal, Kate never considers that Peter may not be so willing to move on. Six months later, Peter Ash's body washes up on a beach, and Beth is assigned the case. As the pool of suspects narrows and the mystery of who Peter Ash became during the final months of his life deepens, Beth is forced to see that the prime suspect might have been right in front of her the entire time. Fatal is fresh proof that John Lescroart is 'a true master of the craft' (Associated Press) whose picture should be 'printed beside the definition of 'spellbinding' in the dictionary' (Suspense Magazine).
