Sean Duffy knows there's no such thing as a perfect crime. But a torso in a suitcase is pretty close. Still, one tiny clue is all it takes, and there it is. A tattoo. So Duffy, fully fit and back at work after the severe trauma of his last case, is ready to follow the trail of blood-however faint-that always, always connects a body to its killer. A legendarily stubborn man, Duffy becomes obsessed with this mystery as a distraction from the ruins of his love life, and to push down the seed of self-doubt that he seems to have traded for his youthful arrogance. So from country lanes to city streets, Duffy works every angle. And wherever he goes, he smells a rat... 334 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Warner Books 225737 London 2000 0751525499 / 9780751525496 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket "Everyone remembers exactly what they were doing the day President Kennedy tried to kill them." * * * In 1962, the Cuban Missile Crisis brought the United States and the Soviet Union to the brink of the nuclear war. The crisis was averted, but what would have happened if war had broken out? In "Resurrection Day," award-winning author Brendan DuBois brings this horrific concept to life... * * * New York Times bestselling author Lee Child: "'Resurrection Day' is the best 'what if' novel in years --- more clever and resonant than Robert Harris's 'Fatherland' --- and all the more scary because disaster was minutes away from happening for real. A book you'll read three times and keep on your shelves forever." New York Times bestselling author William Martin: "What if the Russians had not blinked in October 1962? Brendan DuBois gives us the answer in this smart, suspenseful thriller, a frighteningly believable piece of alternative history. You'll be shocked on every page by a world so familiar in its details that the terrible changes seem commonplace. Brendan DuBois is a fine writer, at the top of his game." Edgar-award winning author S.J. Rozan: "A convincing and terrifying look at an alternative history that could easily have been ours. DuBois's careful research and dark imagination weave together a story that you won't be able to put down --- and that you will be grateful is only fiction." REVIEWS Publisher's Weekly (starred review): "In his first novel outside of his acclaimed Lewis Cole mystery series DuBois delivers an alternate-history thriller that deserves to be as popular as Robert Harris's 'Fatherland.' DuBois postulates an America that has been politically devastated by a nuclear exchange arising from the Cuban missile crisis... Cohesively plotted and smoothly written, steadily exciting and rife with clever conceits, this is what-if thriller fiction at its finest." Booklist (starred review): "Like the best alternate-history fiction (Robert Harris' 'Fatherland' or the novels of Harry Turtledove), DuBois' tale is a feast for the mind, a what-if story that's so plausible it reads, at times, like nonfiction. In every way, this is a first-rate novel and one that is sure to appeal to a wide variety of readers." Rocky Mountain News: "DuBois has done an extraordinary job of envisioning a world that might have been." * * * Winner of the Sidewise Award for Best Alternative History Novel of the Year. * * * With new Author's Afterward for the this edition. * * * Cover art by Jeroen ten Berge.

Bantam Press 242711 Great Britain 2004 0593054253 / 9780593054253 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Harvard professor Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call while on business in Paris: the elderly curator of the Louvre, Jacques Sauniere, has been brutally murdered inside the museum. Alongside the body, police have found a series of baffling codes. As Langdon and a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, begin to sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to find a trail that leads to the works of Leonardo Da Vinci - and suggests the answer to a mystery that stretches deep into the vault of history. Langdon suspects the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion - a centuries old secret society - and has sacrificed his life to protect the Priory's most sacred trust: the location of a vastly important religious relic hidden for centuries. But it now appears that Opus Dei, a clandestine sect that has long plotted to seize the Prirory's secret, has now made its move. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine code and quickly assemble the pieces of the puzzle, the Priory's secret - and a stunning historical truth - will be lost forever...Breaking the mould of traditional suspense novels, The Da Vinci Code is simultaneously lightning-paced, intelligent and intricately layered with remarkable research and detail. And in this exclusive edition Dan Brown allows the reader behind the scenes of the novel which now incorporates over 150 photographs and illustrations throughout the text showing the rich historical tapestry from which he drew his inspiration. The visual sources which provide both the backdrop and the stimulus for the novel's action are revealed for the first time and uniquely complement the reading experience. 467 pages.
