In the long hot summer of 1939 Britain is preparing for war. But on a riverside farm in Suffolk there is excitement of another kind: Mrs Petty, the widowed farmer, has had her hunch proved correct that the strange mounds on her land hold buried treasure. As the dig proceeds against a background of mounting national anxiety, it becomes clear though that this is no ordinary find ... And pretty soon the discovery leads to all kinds of jealousies and tensions. John Preston's recreation of the Sutton Hoo dig - the greatest Anglo-Saxon discovery ever in Britain - brilliantly and comically dramatizes three months of intense activity when locals fought outsiders, professionals thwarted amateurs, and love and rivaly flourished in equal measure

In retired Delta Force officer Brad Taylor’s latest exhilarating short story, Pike Logan’s personal mission to get Jennifer Cahill into the Taskforce becomes tied to an archaeological dig in Roswell, New Mexico, where exposing a conspiracy leads to something much more treacherous than alien cover-ups. Includes an excerpt of Brad Taylor's latest Pike Logan novel, The Forgotten Soldier, on sale 12/29/2015. After finding the ruins of a Mayan temple—and saving the world from a terrorist attack—in One Rough Man, Pike Logan has been given the chance to rejoin the Taskforce, a top secret counterterrorist organization that operates outside the bounds of US law. But before he becomes an operator again, he’s determined to get Jennifer Cahill into the Taskforce as well, though no one else seems willing to give a female civilian a shot. Jennifer herself would rather focus on setting up their new company, Grolier Recovery Services, an archaeological research agency that Pike hopes will also serve as a sophisticated cover for future Taskforce missions. When Grolier receives its first job offer to check out a site in Roswell, New Mexico, Jennifer convinces Pike to go. But once they arrive it’s clear that there’s a lot more going on than a simple search for Indian artifacts, and uncovering the secrets carefully guarded out in the desert could not only cost them their future with the Taskforce, but their very lives.

Die größte Verschwörung der Moderne – der neue große Politthriller des Bestsellerautors Am 22. Dezember 1894 wird der französische Hauptmann Alfred Dreyfus wegen Landesverrat zu lebenslanger Haft verurteilt und verbannt. Ein Justizirrtum, wie er beteuert und wovon auch der neue Geheimdienstchef Picquart zunehmend überzeugt ist. In den Wirren der Dreyfus-Affäre, die ganz Europa erschüttert, rollt er den Fall neu auf. Weshalb er bald selbst zwischen die Mühlräder der Macht gerät und das Ziel dunkler Machenschaften wird ... Der elsässische Offizier Alfred Dreyfus, einziger Jude im französischen Generalstab, soll Militärgeheimnisse verraten haben. Von einem geheimen Militärgericht wird er zu Unrecht verurteilt, und die Degradierung wird mit viel Pomp und Getöse öffentlich zelebriert. Nur wenige wittern den Skandal, während die Massen von der Presse aufgehetzt werden. Krawalle, Intrigen, Fälschungen, Ministerstürze, Attentate, versuchte Staatsstreiche sind die Folgen. Die Französische Republik stürzt in eine tiefe Krise. Der offene Antisemitismus bricht sich Bahn. Zu den wenigen, die von Dreyfus’ Unschuld überzeugt sind, gehört der neue Geheimdienstchef Picquart. Mit dem Kampf für die Rehabilitierung von Dreyfus setzt er allerdings das eigene Leben aufs Spiel. Es wäre kein Roman von Robert Harris, ginge er nicht sehr aktuellen Fragen nach: Was passiert, wenn Geheimdienste außer Kontrolle geraten, wenn der Staat geheime Gerichte zulässt, wenn Minderheiten zum Sündenbock gemacht werden, wenn Politiker ihre Verbrechen zu vertuschen suchen?

Life couldn’t be worse for archaeology grad student Jim Hunt. Having lost his funding at a major midwestern university, and his partner, he desperately needs a breakthrough to revitalize his work and his life. Could a summer dig in map-dot Lyons, Kansas, jumpstart his fledgling career? Out of options, he packs his bags. Five hundred years earlier, Spanish conquistador Francisco Vásquez de Coronado faces a desperate journey of his own through New World terrain. He must find the legendary golden city of Quivira. But can he trust the mysterious “Turk,” his Indian guide? Jim and Coronado’s stories interweave in The Dig, intersecting at a fateful point. Things don’t improve for Jim with his first steps in Lyons—and his trespass upon an ancient mausoleum. His curiosity angers the locals—including Eva, a striking but no-nonsense museum worker Jim is instantly drawn to. A local tough, Mitch Keeper—enforcer for a reclusive, wealthy landowner—seems to go out of his way to harass Jim. The sheriff thinks nothing of throwing him in jail. And then the seemingly innocuous dig turns deadly. It’s not much better for the conquistador. After days of wandering through dusty lands with no food or water, Coronado and his men are dying. Still, the Turk beckons them on. To continue means death. But to return empty-handed is equally unbearable . . . Sheldon Russell ratchets the tension and mystery in both narratives as Jim and Coronado close in on—or are eluded by—what they seek. Along the way, the author’s research and craftsmanship shine through. Coronado’s carefully rendered, formal speech contrasts with the casual dialogue authentic to the plains today. Even minor characters, from Stufflebaum, Lyons’s prankster taxidermist, to the inscrutable Turk leap from the page. A historical fiction thrill ride that builds to an Indiana Jones–style standoff, The Dig forces its characters—and readers—to grapple with an age-old proverb: all that glitters is not gold.
