Raymond Khoury Steve Berry


From New York Times bestselling authors Raymond Khoury and Steve Berry comes a unique and wildly original short story, published exclusively as a Kindle ebook.

It’s been ten years since FBI agent Sean Reilly and retired Justice Department operative Cotton Malone got dragged around the globe on their separate Templar adventures. They’d never worked on a case together—until now.

Something’s afoot in London, England. American specialists have gone missing. Intel chatter points to a major terrorist plot in the works. And a familiar keyword links to both Reilly and Malone.

The two agents are urgently despatched to London where they discover a plot that’s more personal, and more surprising, than they could have possibly imagined (and that involves an author or two that you might recognise).

It's like nothing you've read before.

Includes exclusive sneak peeks at Raymond Khoury’s next Reilly novel, THE END GAME, and Steve Berry’s next Cotton Malone novel, THE 14th COLONY.

Ketchum and Cobb

Ketchum and Cobb


For nine days in October of 1990, two Boston homicide detectives, Ketchum and Cobb, investigate the brutal murder of a South Boston man in his living room. For each, the case knifes through the middle of their lives. With Cobb, it’s heavy weather and high seas because he’s grieving over his son’s suicide from four years ago. With Ketchum, it’s a chance at some sunshine – he thinks he’s found the love of his life, but his heart hesitates. Will she really be attracted to a guy like me, he wonders?

As they encounter characters in a South Boston bar who have tenuous connections to the dark side of Boston, they lighten the demands of the job through banter and philosophically posit important questions such as why, with three million people, you can’t get a decent pizza in Chicago? Or more importantly, why are there no cheerleaders in baseball?

In trying to bring the murderer or murderers to justice and make the city safe, Ketchum and Cobb navigate through an urban thicket planted with connivance, loneliness, Alzheimer’s Disease, and selflessness. Join the journey in this debut novel.

Loose Cannon

Loose Cannon


An angry man with nothing to lose is a deadly combination. His oldest friends are afraid of what he may do to political and corporate leaders. Just what is the eccentric Chris Hastings plotting from his base in Malta? Will it disrupt the 2012 Olympics? Will his friends become suspects and their guilty secrets exposed?

In 1984, with the miners’ strike at its height, eight friends formed ‘The Lord Chamberlain’s Men’. The group pledged to take ‘below the radar’ action against hypocrisy – hypocrisy they’d seen in government, in large corporations and in the mainstream media. The leader and prime activist in the group is Chris Hastings who is dying of cancer. From the autumn of 2011 through to the summer of 2012 he embarks on leaving a legacy of disruption to the world order.

This tense, psychological thriller explores the murky borderlines between activism and desperation and between fact and propaganda. There is plenty of humour too as the men and women closest to Chris Hastings spar with each other to determine how much each knows about his intent. The explosive ending justifies all the concerns the Lord Chamberlain’s Men had about their leader and loose cannon.

Tony Robinson OBE is best known for the fictional satire ‘Freedom from Bosses Forever’.

No Stranger To Death


Some secrets can be deadly . . .

The featureless corpse lay like a grotesque department-store mannequin, elbows and knees flexed, fists clenched. Wisps of smoke rose from its still-burning torso.

Recently-widowed GP Zoe Moreland really wishes she’d chosen another route to walk her dog on November 6th. Had they gone away from the village, Mac could not have led her to the body lying in the remains of a Guy Fawkes bonfire.

Zoe’s move from an English city to the Scottish Borders was meant to be a fresh start among strangers unaware of her past. Instead, she is thrust into the limelight by her grisly discovery and gets caught up in the resulting murder investigation. Then someone else dies unexpectedly and Zoe herself narrowly escapes death.

Determined not to become the killer’s next victim, she digs beneath the tranquil surface of the close knit community to find out who is committing these horrible acts. But uncovering other people’s secrets puts Zoe in even more danger . . .

Money, murder and love on the high seas

In the world of international shipping, the rules are blurred and the oceans lawless.

Facing down terrifying childhood memories, torn between two very different women and doubting old friends, McKinnon must navigate a precarious path between secretive government agencies, shady syndicates and avaricious crime lords towards an unpredictable endgame.

Gambling everything on his faith in one man, can McKinnon beat the odds and come out on top?

A gripping page-turner, Sea of Gold draws the reader into a world of extremes, the casual affluence of the super-rich contrasting with the dignified poverty of the desperate. Meanwhile, McKinnon’s two loves – the enigmatic Claire and his devoted, long-term lover, Eleni, vie for his attention.

This debut thriller from Nick Elliott is packed with intrigue – if you love your action spiced with suspense, make Sea of Gold your next read.
