Summary

Hundreds of years after civilisation has been destroyed by nuclear war, the Earth is divided between the Trackers of the Amtrak Federation – a community living in vast subterranean cities – and the Mutes, who have evolved to withstand the radiation that has driven their foes underground. A long war for possession of the overground has killed and enslaved many of the Mutes, leaving only the Plainfolk to resist the Federation. And now the Iron Masters – a powerful people living in the traditions of the Samurai – have joined the struggle for dominance. 
    
  Steve Brickman, a Tracker wingman who has formed a bond with the Plainfolk Mute clan M'Call, has become embroiled in a web of deceit, double bluffing, and lies. Now an agent of AMEXICO, a secret intelligence force of the Amtrak Federation, he has had to walk a fine line between his divided loyalties. Struggling to be true to his own people, Brickman strives to protect his one-time mentor Mr Snow, clan M'Call's magically gifted wordsmith, his Mute friend Cadillac, and the object of his desire, the beautiful Clearwater. Together, they all have a part to play in the Mute prophesy of Talisman, the one who will bring peace to the Earth, and turn the red world green once more. 
    
  But now Cadillac and Clearwater have been kidnapped by the Iron Masters, a new threat in the power wars of the blue-sky world, and Brickman is determined to save them. With the psychic aid of his kin-sister Roz, and the help of the covert network of AMEXICO spies, he must infiltrate their closed and secretive society. Disguised as a Mute, travelling into the treacherous unknown, he must decide into whose hands to deliver his friends if he manages to save them; his AMEXICO handlers, who believe he is working for them? Or to Mr Snow, anxiously awaiting the return of his two disciples, the hope of the clan M'Call?  
    
  Iron Master, first published in 1987, is the third instalment of Patrick Tilley's internationally best selling science fiction epic, The Amtrak Wars Saga.

    Private investigator Jake Cardigan must race against time to save the life of his son and get the deadliest weapons in the world out of the hands of the most dangerous criminals in the universe In the seventh book of the TekWar Series by bestselling author and Star Trek icon William Shatner, terror hits too close to home for protagonist Jake Cardigan, private eye of the future.   Homicide is as common in the twenty-second century as it was one hundred years earlier, thanks in large part to the ruthless TekLords, criminals who traffic in the popular electronic fantasy-enabling drug Tek. When a Tek user who was once a family friend is brutally murdered just outside the door of Dan Cardigan, son of private eye Jake Cardigan, the young man is shocked to discover that the police consider him a prime suspect. Worse still, Dan has become a disposable pawn in a very deadly game. With his son’s life on the line, Jake and his loyal partner, Sid Gomez, must somehow get to the bottom of the disappearance of terrifying new weaponry from a California research facility and a related rash of murders—a mission that will put them at odds not only with a formidable criminal conspiracy, but with the police and the most lethal factions of the US government itself. This ebook features an illustrated biography of William Shatner including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

    The last thing Leofred Toustain ever wanted was to be tied in marriage to the daughter of an enemy lord. Yet, when a peace treaty is forged in an attempt to mend the war-torn realm of Alemere that is precisely what he is faced with. To add insult to injury, the bride chosen for him is a sullen, silent shell of a woman who recoils from his every attempt at intimacy. Resigned to his fate, he strives to at least form a friendship of sorts with her. In the process, he will discover that there is far more to the woman he married than meets the eye. 
     
    After a harrowing incident left her broken and hideously scarred, Lady Emery Calliot fully intended to avoid marriage. However, when her only living male relative and guardian signs her life away in a peace treaty, she is left with no other choice. Determined to keep her scars—both physical and internal—a secret, she seeks to place as much distance between herself and Leofred as possible. Yet, the more time she spends with her new husband, the harder hiding from him becomes. Emery will face a daunting decision: reveal her scars and the dark secret accompanying them to her husband and risk his disgust and scorn, or bare her secrets and find acceptance, love, and perhaps, the strength she needs to become whole again.
