Out on the ice, polar bears aren't the only natural born killers. Nick Stone is suffering. The two people he cared for most are gone. Thousands of miles away five ex-servicemen, badly wounded in Afghanistan, are preparing for a trek to the North Pole in an attempt to begin to rebuild their shattered bodies and minds. When Stone is summoned as close protection for the trek by an old SAS officer, he accepts unthinkingly, desperate for the chance to escape his own misery. They meet at the world’s most northerly airport, where the locals are as hard as nails and the polar bear threat makes it against the law not to carry a gun. But it doesn’t take long for Stone and his team to discover that neither the bears nor the locals are the most dangerous predators in this part of the world.

Ноябрь 2009 года. В одиночной, промозглой камере московского изолятора, было обнаружено истерзанное побоями восьми охранников, бездыханное тело, тяжело больного юриста - Сергея Магнитского. В чем было его преступление? - Разоблачение коррумпированных должностных лиц МВД, причастных к хищению из российского бюджета 230 миллионов долларов налогов, уплаченных ранее одним из самых успешных в мире инвестиционных фондов. И по сей день виновные в этом жестоком убийстве остаются безнаказанными. Последующий постыдный посмертный судебный процесс над юристом воспринят международным сообществом как акт средневекового мракобесия путинского режима. Красный циркуляр – книга разоблачение масштабного сокрытия правды и следов совершенных преступлений российской властью в отношении Сергея Магнитского – его незаконный арест и убийство - проникает глубоко в Кремль, вскрывая неприглядную правду о режиме. Билл Браудер – инвестиционный управляющий и клиент Магнитского – погружает нас в головокружительный мир финансов Нью-Йорка и Лондона 90-х годов, его схватку с российскими олигархами в постсоветской Москве и последующее выдворение из России по указанию Путина (Кремля). Автору удается на фактах показать сращивание российской власти с криминалом, где грани настолько размыты, что уже невозможно отличить одного от другого. Под влиянием произошедшего мы наблюдает трансформацию человека (автора) из финансиста в правозащитника, ведущего кампанию за установление справедливости в отношении своего покойного адвоката и друга. Красный циркуляр – нещадно оголяет то, от чего страдает сегодняшняя Россия - взяточничество, коррупция, мошенничество, пытки и убийство каждого, кто оказался на пути развратной власти. Книга шокирует нас откровениями о политических механизмах работы в высших эшелонах власти на Западе.

Former Special Forces Officer and New York Times bestselling author Brad Taylor delivers a heart-pounding thriller where Pike Logan's search for a Mossad agent and ally puts him on a collision course with a ruthless military coup in Africa—and tests his loyalties to the Taskforce. It was to be a simple mission. Nothing more than assessing whether a merchant in the fabled Israeli Diamond Exchange was involved in a scheme that could potentially embarrass the state of Israel. But nothing is ever simple in the world of intelligence, as Aaron Bergman—a former leader of an elite direct action team under the Mossad—should have known. Executing the operation as a contractor, a cutout that gave the State of Israel plausible deniability, he disappears without a trace. Pike Logan and his team know none of this, but he’s tracking an American arms dealer in Tel Aviv who may—or may not—be attempting to sell sensitive nuclear weapons components to the highest bidder. When Pike’s team breaks up an attempt at killing Shoshana, Aaron’s partner, they stumble upon much more than they expected—a concerted conspiracy to topple a democratic African country. Beginning to untangle a web that extends through both the American and Israeli intelligence community, Pike is forced to choose between his Israeli friends and his Taskforce mission, even as the execution of the coup begins to form. At the heart of it is Aaron, and his disappearance is the one mistake the plotters made. Because Shoshana is the greatest killing machine the Mossad has ever produced, and she will stop at nothing to help Aaron, even if it means killing Pike Logan.

The hair-raising follow-up to Remote Control and Crisis Four by former SAS member Andy McNab. If he hadn't needed the cash so badly, Nick Stone would never have messed with the Russian mafia. The job seemed simple enough for a man of his particular talents: kidnap a heartless, money-laundering mob boss from his fortified Helsinki hotel room and deliver him to St. Petersburg. But as the plan begins to unfold, Stone soon realizes that by no means has he been told the whole story. Catapulted into the bleak underworld of the former Soviet republic of Estonia, where unknown aggressors stalk the Arctic landscape, Stone finds that the mob may now turn out to be the least of his problems. Russia has embarked on a new Cold War offensive -- hacking into the West's computer systems and stealing their most coveted military secrets. As one bloody double-cross leads to another, Stone finds himself caught between the suicidal schemes of the British and American intelligence agencies and the ruthless Russians who want to silence him.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “High-powered, intricately wrought suspense.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times “Hold on tight. . . . This novel will give you whiplash as you rabidly turn pages. . . . May be [Lee Child’s] best.”—USA Today New York City. Two in the morning. A subway car heading uptown. Jack Reacher, plus five other passengers. Four are okay. The fifth isn’t. And if you think Reacher isn’t going to get involved . . . then you don’t know Jack. Susan Mark, the fifth passenger, had a big secret, and her plain little life was being watched in Washington, and California, and Afghanistan—by dozens of people with one thing in common: They’re all lying to Reacher. A little. A lot. Or just enough to get him killed. A race has begun through the streets of Manhattan, a maze crowded with violent, skilled soldiers on all sides of a shadow war. For Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, the finish line comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye. “Propulsive . . . [Child is] an expert at ratcheting up tension.”—Los Angeles Times “A top-notch thriller.”—Booklist (starred review) “Edgy . . . thoroughly engrossing.”—The Miami Herald
