“Fans of Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers will eat this up.” --Stephen King For fans of THE MARTIAN, an extraordinary new thriller of the future from #1 New York Times–bestselling and Pulitzer Prize–winning author John Sandford and internationally known photo-artist and science fiction aficionado Ctein. Over the course of thirty-seven books, John Sandford has proven time and again his unmatchable talents for electrifying plots, rich characters, sly wit, and razor-sharp dialogue. Now, in collaboration with Ctein, he proves it all once more, in a stunning new thriller, a story as audacious as it is deeply satisfying. The year is 2066. A Caltech intern inadvertently notices an anomaly from a space telescope—something is approaching Saturn, and decelerating. Space objects don’t decelerate. Spaceships do. A flurry of top-level government meetings produces the inescapable conclusion: Whatever built that ship is at least one hundred years ahead in hard and soft technology, and whoever can get their hands on it exclusively and bring it back will have an advantage so large, no other nation can compete. A conclusion the Chinese definitely agree with when they find out. The race is on, and an remarkable adventure begins—an epic tale of courage, treachery, resourcefulness, secrets, surprises, and astonishing human and technological discovery, as the members of a hastily thrown-together crew find their strength and wits tested against adversaries both of this earth and beyond. What happens is nothing like you expect—and everything you could want from one of the world’s greatest masters of suspense. From the Hardcover edition.

Ten thousand men and women, exiled by the restrictive governments of Earth, are riding a man-made habitat to the planet Saturn. They form a volatile community.

Malcolm Eberly, has been placed aboard the Saturn-bound habitat to take over its government. As the mammoth spacecraft nears its destination Eberly manoeuvres to take control of the habitat.

Someday in the future, when terrorism, pollution, and global warming (with horrendous weather changes) force earthbound man to the precipice of existence, mankind will have to find sanctity from destruction. The answer may lie in adapting to living in space, or on man-made islands in the middle of the ocean. After living shoulder to shoulder in cramped quarters for years on end, survivors soon discover that all forms of religion and politics must be banned; otherwise, mankind is doomed. Laid off from Boeing, Don Ringo keeps trying to establish a business, but fails miserably. Only when he teams up with a retired con man does he succeed, by buying a bankrupt space shuttle manufacturer. The space shuttle he calls Earth Hopper is a resounding success, reducing launch costs to a fraction of his competitors. He decides to open a "Spaceshop" in Earth orbit that provides supplies and repair services to NASA, the International Space Station, International Moon Base, and to others. Teaming up with Zili Pedog in Sitnalta, their fortunes multiply, and space is conquered. The future of mankind is at stake. The assault comes from the failures of religion, the politics of capitalism, socialism, communism, autocracy, dictatorship, and democracy in not addressing global recession, and man-made ecological disaster. The Armageddon of tomorrow may well come long before earthlings take the precautions needed to survive as an intelligent species.

A riveting tale of river piracy, gang wars, and the worst catastrophe to hit New York City before September 11, 2001 In 1904 the Hudson and East Rivers were vital to the people of Manhattan. They offered families an escape from the squalor of the tenements, politicians a means of catering to their constituents, and criminals a means to make a fortune in black-market goods. When Detective Mike Braddock foils a midnight heist led by the gangland thug Smiling Jack, the city honors him as a hero. But Mike can't forget Jack's final revelation: the identity of a new mobster jockeying for position in the cutthroat world of New York's gangs. Mike is committed to bringing down this new criminal powerhouse before he takes power, no matter where his investigation takes him. He finds out quickly that he's not the only one who wants to take down this new gangster. A host of other mob heavies have their eyes on the same target, and they're more than willing to knock Mike out of the way to get there first. Full of action, double-crossing, and high-stakes mob warfare, Richard E. Crabbe's Hell's Gate brings readers to the rough-and-tumble streets of historic Manhattan, all set against the vivid backdrop of the greatest tragedy to strike New York until 9/11: the General Slocum disaster.
