When two five-year-old twins are abducted from a campsite in the Lake District, their grandfather, Major Stanley Timms, distrustful of the floundering police investigation, decides to bring in his own Special Forces unit to investigate the case. Headed by the unconventional and irrepressible John Tankersley, members of this force are beyond police jurisdiction and play by their own rules – but even these may not be enough, as the chilling case seems to implicate both a sophisticated international people-trafficking ring and the family itself… An intense thriller full of twists and turns.

Peopled by larger-than-life heroes and villains, charged with towering questions of good and evil, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand’s magnum opus: a philosophical revolution told in the form of an action thriller. Who is John Galt? When he says that he will stop the motor of the world, is he a destroyer or a liberator? Why does he have to fight his battles not against his enemies but against those who need him most? Why does he fight his hardest battle against the woman he loves? You will know the answer to these questions when you discover the reason behind the baffling events that play havoc with the lives of the amazing men and women in this book. You will discover why a productive genius becomes a worthless playboy...why a great steel industrialist is working for his own destruction...why a composer gives up his career on the night of his triumph...why a beautiful woman who runs a transcontinental railroad falls in love with the man she has sworn to kill. Atlas Shrugged, a modern classic and Rand’s most extensive statement of Objectivism—her groundbreaking philosophy—offers the reader the spectacle of human greatness, depicted with all the poetry and power of one of the twentieth century’s leading artists.

This concise guide tells you how to write a novel by using a systematic approach to writing. This guide is written by an author not a 'guru'. A simple step by step breakdown of how to plan each day. No fillers and no theory, just the hard facts in a concise guide. There are many guides about writing novels on the market but how many of them are written by prolific published authors? The answer is ‘not many’. How can anyone write a guide unless they have been through the writing process many times before? The simple answer to this question is they can’t because they cannot feed on their own actual experiences to help another writer to avoid the mistakes and pitfalls. Most guides regurgitate information which they have picked up from creative writing books or sites. How can they give you advice when they have never sat down and focused on creating a novel which will sell, many times over? Writing a novel is the same as any other task we undertake as individuals. We have to learn how to do it in order to do it well. When you first learn to drive, you need lessons. No one walks into the kitchen and creates a gourmet dish on their first attempt. If you want a system to apply to writing a book, then you need to take advice from an ‘author’ who has taken years to develop the process via experience.

This book offers a fresh perspective on the popular and acclaimed Amsterdam-based design/art collective Metahaven. Densely illustrated, and very recognizably designed by Metahaven, it is the only survey of its work currently available. Led by Vinca Kruk and Daniel van der Velden, Metahaven works between filmmaking, art, research and design; it has produced documentary-based works, music videos, books (such as Can Jokes Bring Down Governments? and Black Transparency) and lectures that investigate matters of propaganda, truth and identity, especially with regard to the structuring of our symbolic realm. The book offers a variety of critical takes on the collective's work and examines its recent shift to moving-image work, thinking through the various ways in which its sprawling oeuvre is embedded in the sociopolitical challenges of the present.
