Skinner

Written By: Huston, Charlie

Skinner founded his career in "asset protection" on fear. To touch anyone under his protection was to invite destruction. A savagely effective methodology, until Skinner's CIA handlers began to fear him as much as his enemies did and banished him to the hinterlands of the intelligence community. Now, an ornate and evolving cyber-terrorist attack is about to end that long exile. His asset is Jae, a roboticist with a gift for seeing the underlying systems violently shaping a new era of global guerrilla warfare. At the root of it all is a young boy, the innocent seed of a plot grown in the slums of Mumbai. Brought to flower, that plot will tip the balance of world power in a perilous new direction. A combination of Le Carre spycraft with Stephenson techno-philosophy from the novelist hailed by the Washington Post as "the voice of twenty-first century crime fiction," SKINNER is Charlie Huston's masterpiece--a new kind of thriller for a new kind of world.

In the heart of south-central Africa lies an ancient and ruined civilization comprising several thousand stone structures - many as large as modern towns - all surrounded by thousands of abandoned gold mines. The monuments, temples, forts and sculptures of the Zimbabwe culture are reminiscent of the classic civilizations of the Egyptians and Phoenicians. Yet, when the Royal Geographical Society sent teams to investigate in 1893, the resident natives who were living beneath the walls in thatched clay huts denied any knowledge of the vast civilization that had evidently preceded them and were ignorant of the value of gold. Robin Brown-Lowe uses incontrovertible DNA evidence to demonstrate strong links to the mighty civilizations of ancient North Africa and to propose that the Zimbabwe's gold sustained the gold-hungry pharoahs of Egypt and the famolusly gold-loving King Solomon and his lover, the Queen of Sheba. Brown-Lowe also reveals how the truth about the Zimbabwe culture has been radically influenced and even suppressed by white and black political interests. This is a gripping story of discovery and detection set in one of the most mysterious ancient civilizations. It will appeal to all those interested in African history and archaeology and to anyone fascinated by lost cities, ruined temples, or abandoned gold mines.

Queen Victoria is crowned; she receives the orb, the sceptre, and an arsenal of blood-stained weaponry. Because if Britain is about to become the greatest power of the age, there's the small matter of the demons to take care of first... But rather than dreaming of demon hunting, it is Prince Albert who occupies her thoughts. Can she dedicate her life to saving her country when her heart belongs elsewhere? With lashings of glistening entrails, decapitations, and foul demons, this masterly new portrait will give a fresh understanding of a remarkable woman, a legendary monarch, and quite possibly the best Demon Hunter the world has ever seen . . . A E Moorat weaves a seamlessly lurid tapestry of royal biography, gothic horror and fist-gnawing comedy as he lifts the veil on what really took place on the dark and cobbled streets of 19th-century England
