    At the height of the Cold War, a cashiered SEAL officer living in Japan is retained by a world-famous Russian dissident to rescue a friend from the Siberian Gulag. The SEAL officer recruits and trains a group to undertake the cold weather operation and even finagles an off-the-books diesel submarine . . . for a price. The rescue is grueling and the withdrawal harrowing.  Red Ice takes place in Japan’s Honshu and Hokkaido Islands, South Korea, Russia’s Kuril Islands, the Sea of Okhotsk, and Siberia.   It is a relentless tale of cross-cultural naval intrique as it is practiced in rubber boats and kayaks, in pup tents and snow caves, on skis, and aboard submarines. Red Ice is savagely authentic in its description of this brand of unconventional warfare and of the individual tensions that haunt the men who practice it.

    When more than a dozen people die at a retirement home, the official story is carbon monoxide poisoning. Cèsar Hawke is convinced the reason is less mundane and more infernal. But that’s his job. As an agent working for the Office of Preternatural Affairs, he’s always looking for supernatural answers to deadly questions.
    
     
    Isobel Stonecrow agrees to help him find the truth. With her powers of necrocognition, she can speak to the dead and get the real story.
    
     
    But when they return to the crime scene, they find a lot more than cadavers. They find a nightmare that they can’t escape—a nightmare from Isobel’s past, which even she can’t completely remember thanks to the contract that signed away her soul.
    
     
    Cèsar will have to disinter Isobel’s secrets to save her. He’ll learn who Isobel used to be, what she’s done, and the price she paid…no matter how deadly the knowledge might be.

    The
    Savages (A
    Murder Thriller)
    
     
     
    
     
    ‘This is a taut, handsome job, beautifully written, full of
    real characters and acute observations.’
    
     
    The New York Times
    
     
     
    
     
     
    
     
    When Colonel Bannister-Coates, an experienced Intelligence
    officer, fails to return to his Oxfordshire village home and his immaculate
    clothes are discovered dressing a scarecrow in a roadside field, there is a
    flurry of anxious activity in Whitehall.
    
     
     
    
     
    Detective Superintendent Staunton and his urbane Detective
    Inspector, Leo Wyndsor, are under pressure to discover if this is defection or
    assassination, or if there is some other, less obvious, answer.
    
     
     
    
     
    Despite local obstruction and sparse, enigmatic clues, and
    without the benefit of the more sophisticated aids to detection that are
    available now, a pattern gradually emerges, leading the detectives to a climax
    as intriguing and hazardous as any found in the earlier highly praised Staunton
    and Wyndsor novels.
    
     
     
    
     
     
    
     
    The
    Savages is the fourth in a series of classic police procedural
    murder mysteries set in the 1970s.
    
     
     
    
     
    These books were previously published worldwide, by major
    publishing houses, in hard and paperback editions and are now available as
    eBooks. 
    
     
    The Hunters is the first in The Staunton and Wyndsor Series
    which introduced the two memorable detectives, followed by The Liars and The
    Enthusiast. They are set in various locations in Britain. 
     
    
     
    Each novel is a stand-alone story, with the same two detectives
    as the major protagonists.

    These tales range from the merely odd to the fantastic, from the tragic to the magical. In one story you'll accompany a Cajun on a single-minded mission into the backwoods of Louisiana on a deep, humid night. In another, you'll witness the life or death struggle between a fifteen year old boy and the mean drunk who's been his oppressor for years. There's also a story about writing and the writer stalking his mentor; a job that very few could do but for which many would apply (wanna be a Mind Cleaner?); and a child's tale of a favorite pasttime: crushing bugs. Eric also offers up the ground rules for getting by when your shadow is doing odd things, writes of the passion between Giacomo Casanova and the one woman he has loved down through the ages, and wonders aloud what might happen if the characters in a story grew tired of a hack writer and banded together against him. Finally he takes the reader on a hectic road trip in "Interference," and ends with "A Natural Study of the Scream." All in all, this collection provides a very satisfying, if extremely unusual, reading experience. The reader will remember these stories.

    The past returns to haunt Chief Inspector Alan Banks in this harrowing novel of suspense from New York Times bestselling author Peter Robinson. 
    There are human bones, buried in an open field, the remains of a lost teenaged boy whose disappearance devastated a community more than thirty-five-years ago…and scarred a guilt-ridden friend forever… 
    A long-hidden horror has been unearthed, dragging a tormented policeman into a past he could never truly forget no matter how desperately he tried. A heinous crime that occurred too close to home still has its grip on Chief Inspector Alan Banks—and it’s leading him into a dark place where evil still dwells. Because the secrets that doomed young Graham Marshall back in 1965 remain alive and lethal, and disturbing them could cost Banks much more than he ever imagined.  
    Master of suspense Peter Robinson once again delves into the human psyche to reveal what leads some to commit murder in this compelling, unforgettable thriller.
