What if America had lost the Revolutionary War? And now lived in constant fear and oppression? From the bestselling author of Nightshade, this is the action-packed final chapter of The Inventor's Secret trilogy Charlotte has spent her whole life fighting the British Empire, following in the footsteps of her parents and their group of rebels. But when her reunion with her mother laid bare horrible truths about the rebellion, Charlotte knew she had to escape. Now she is on the run, with no idea who the enemy is--or which of her compatriots is truly on her side. In this action-packed conclusion to the Inventor's Secret trilogy, full of swashbuckling pirates and young ladies who can hold their own against them, Charlotte will need to fight for her life and for her beliefs -- whatever they might be. Praise for The Turncoat's Gambit: "As in the previous two volumes, there is plenty of fighting and chicanery, but one of the best things about this series is that the characters are never sacrificed on the altar of action. . . . Series readers will especially relish the last several chapters. Yes, there is fighting and death, but restoration and romance win the day."--Booklist Praise for The Conjurer's Riddle: "This is classic steampunk [with] exotic and picturesque locales, lots of interesting machinery, and the adrenaline rush of following the adventures of an honest and fearless heroine. A suitably swashbuckling sequel."--Kirkus Reviews Praise for The Inventor's Secret: * "Cremer...creates an inventive blend of steampunk and alternative history in this new series. She gives readers a fantastical world with mechanical wonders and an opulent vintage setting. The characters are interesting and well developed. Readers will be drawn to future installments."--VOYA, starred review "[A]n entertaining romp in a richly imaginative setting."--Kirkus Reviews From the Hardcover edition.

"Boris Akunin ist ein kriminell guter Schriftsteller neuen Typs. Die Liebhaber gebildeter Unterhaltung haben ihren Autor gefunden." FAZ 1877: Rußland steht mit der Türkei im Krieg. Alleinreisende Frauen leben gefährlich in dieser Zeit, noch dazu wenn sie in Männerkleidern unterwegs sind wie die hübsche Warja. Doch in höchster Not taucht ein Fremder auf, ein Gentleman, auch wenn er die Stirn hat, das Mädchen in einer Wette gegen einen Esel zu setzen: Erast Fandorin. Der schweigsame junge Mann ist im Auftrag des russischen Geheimdienstes nach Bulgarien zum Generalstab unterwegs. Warja wird zur unentbehrlichen Helferin Fandorins in diesem zweiten Abenteuer einer Kultserie um den James Bond des 19. Jahrhunderts - erdacht und aufgeschrieben von Boris Akunin, einem der meistgelesenen Autoren Rußlands. "Nein, Gogol hat nie am zweiten Teil der ,Toten Seelen' gearbeitet. Er hat Krimis um Erast Fandorin geschrieben, die erst jetzt unter dem Namen B. Akunin erscheinen. Wenn's wahr wäre - Fandorin wäre der russische Urahn von James Bond. Prekrasno - super!"

Ungewöhnliches geschieht da in der Titelerzählung dieses Bandes: Ein Vater versteckt seinen Sohn gegen dessen Willen in den letzten Kriegstagen in den Wäldern, um ihn vor dem Zugriff des nahenden Krieges zu retten, und der Sohn hasst deshalb seinen Vater. Gambit - das Figurenopfer im Schachspiel - wird zu einem Symbol für diese erregenden Tage, denn der Vater muss die Versäumnisse seines bisherigen Lebens mit dem Tod bezahlen. Aber das Opfer war nicht umsonst, denn der Sohn beginnt zu fragen, nach den Leuten, die ihnen das Essen herausstellten und damit nach seiner Zukunft. Diese Erzählung hat die DEFA 1978 unter dem Titel „Ich zwing dich zu leben“ verfilmt (Regisseur Ralf Kirsten). Auch in den beiden anderen Geschichten dieses Bandes geht es um das Problem der Erziehung und Selbsterziehung, freilich unter nunmehr neuen gesellschaftlichen Gegebenheiten. So gewinnt ein Heimkehrer Vertrauen zu sich und zu seiner Welt, weil es ihm gelingt, das Vertrauen eines Kindes zu gewinnen. Und das Kind befreit sich vom Albdruck böser Erfahrungen. Mitten in der DDR-Zeit spielt die dritte Erzählung, in der die Kündigung einer Lehrerin zum Anlass für Überlegungen und Handlungen wird, die die schwierige Aufgabe des Lehrers heute bestimmen. Das Fernsehen der DDR brachte hierzu 1983 den viel diskutierten Film „Die Kündigung“ heraus (Regisseur Edgar Kaufmann). Karl Sewart erweist sich in diesem Band als ein erstaunlich reifer, psychologisch eindringlicher Erzähler, der künstlerisch originelle und zwingende Lösungen zu finden weiß und vor allem: Er hat Geschichten zu erzählen, die uns bewegen und verändern können.

Karna Small Bodman's first thriller, Checkmate, was praised for its compelling authenticity and page-turning plot. Now Bodman, a former director of the National Security Council, returns with another gripping thriller that reads like tomorrow's headlines. American planes are being shot out of the sky, and no one knows how or why. Three commercial jets have gone up in flames. In each crash, nobody reported seeing anything in the sky and nothing showed up on the radar. No planes. No missiles. Dr. Cameron Talbot, a world-famous expert on missile-defense systems, believes that a new stealth technology is being used in these attacks. With the country in a panic and the economy taking a nosedive, the White House orders the beautiful young scientist to protect America's endangered airways. The assignment places Cammy in mortal jeopardy as she finds herself stalked by nameless assassins. Who is behind the threat? Islamic jihadists? The big drug cartels? None of the usual suspects have claimed responsibility for the crashes. As Cammy races against time to develop a defense against the mystery weapon, she comes to suspect that the downed planes are only the opening gambit in an ambitious campaign of conquest that could change the world's balance of power forever.

The melodious thrill of the calvary charge is absent here. Only the cold impersonal movement of human chess pieces guided by ignorance and error creates scenes of devastation. And through it all anonymous heroism as men struggle to serve their respective nations and loyally do their duty. Men go to sea because they are poor and not because they are dreamers. During the Great Depression young workers thought it heaven to have a job that provided food and shelter and enabled them to save a little money. It was the foundation of the author’s engineering career. His youthful vigor found him a wife, and a college education after he left the sea.

Within days, Varvara's fiancé has been accused of treason, a Turkish victory looms on the horizon, and there are rumours of a Turkish spy hiding within their own camp.

In this biography, the acclaimed author of Sons of Providence, winner of the 2007 George Wash- ington Book Prize, recovers an immensely important part of the founding drama of the country in the story of Robert Morris, the man who financed Washington’s armies and the American Revolution. Morris started life in the colonies as an apprentice in a counting house. By the time of the Revolution he was a rich man, a commercial and social leader in Philadelphia. He organized a clandestine trading network to arm the American rebels, joined the Second Continental Congress, and financed George Washington’s two crucial victories—Valley Forge and the culminating battle at Yorktown that defeated Cornwallis and ended the war. The leader of a faction that included Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and Washington, Morris ran the executive branches of the revolutionary government for years. He was a man of prodigious energy and adroit management skills and was the most successful businessman on the continent. He laid the foundation for public credit and free capital markets that helped make America a global economic leader. But he incurred powerful enemies who considered his wealth and influence a danger to public "virtue" in a democratic society. After public service, he gambled on land speculations that went bad, and landed in debtors prison, where George Washington, his loyal friend, visited him. This once wealthy and powerful man ended his life in modest circumstances, but Rappleye restores his place as a patriot and an immensely important founding father.

The assembled crew from Napoleon's Gold is called to an encore performance. While the fragile Peace of Amiens still holds, it is become clear that the French and Dutch in the East Indies are using the great Dutch base at Batavia to supply and encourage pirates and privateers to molest and sink British shipping in the North Java Sea and Straits of Singapore. Once again Sir Phillip Hollis is entreated to embark his private warships on a covert mission to accomplish what the Government fears to do using the Royal Navy, lest Napoleon exploit it as a cause to resume the war. Phillip, engaged in preparations for his wedding, is at first less than enthused, yet the lure of an epic adventure, along with the prospect of financial advantage, is hard to resist. Accosted from the start by assassins, vandals, French frigates and pirates on the high seas, not to mention the Burmese navy, and most pressing of all, a determined young wife, Phillip is beset on all sides in trying to satisfy both military, political, financial, and domestic agendas. Adventure, humour, and romance mingle to the sound of naval cannon and whispered intrigue.

Centuries after the ecological collapse of Earth, humanity has spread among the stars. Under the governance of the League, our endless need for resources has driven us to colonize hundreds of planets, all of them devoid of other sentient life. Humanity is apparently alone in the universe. Then comes the sudden, brutal decimation of Kassa, a small farming planet, by a mysterious attacker. The few survivors send out a desperate plea for aid, which is answered by two unlikely rescuers. Prudence Falling is the young captain of a tramp freighter. She and her ragtag crew have been on the run and living job to job for years, eking out a living by making cargo runs that aren't always entirely legal. Lt. Kyle Daspar is a police officer from the wealthy planet of Altair Prime, working undercover as a double agent against the League. He's been undercover so long he can't be trusted by anyone-even himself. While flying rescue missions to extract survivors from the surface of devastated Kassa, they discover what could be the most important artifact in the history of man: an alien spaceship, crashed and abandoned during the attack. But in The Kassa Gambit by M.C. Planck, there is more to the story. Together, they discover the cruel truth about the destruction of Kassa, and that an imminent alien invasion is the least of humanity's concerns.
