Four Fergusons will go on to lead four parallel and entirely different lives. Family fortunes diverge. Loves and friendships and passions contrast. Each version of Ferguson's story rushes across the fractured terrain of mid-twentieth century America, in this sweeping story of birthright and possibility, of love and the fullness of life itself.

  • Absolute Book
    Absolute Book
    Taryn Cornick believes that the past is behind her - her sister's death by violence, and her own ill-concieved revenge. She has chosen to live a life more professional than personal. She has written a book about the things that threaten libraries - insects, damp, light, fire, carelessness and uncaring. The book is a success, but not all of the attention it brings her is good.

    There are questions about a fire in the library at Princes Gate, her grandparents' house, and about an ancient scroll box known as the Firestarter. A policeman, Jacob Berger, has questions about a cold case. There are threatening phone calls. And a shadowy young man named Shift appears, bringing his shadows with him. Taryn, Jacob, Shift - three people are driven towards a reckoning felt in more than one world.

    The Absolute Book is an epic fantasy, intimate in tone. A book where hidden treasures are recovered; where wicked things people think they've shaken from their trails find their scent again. A book about beautiful societies founded on theft and treachery, and one in which dead sisters are a living force. It is a book of journeys and returns, set in London, Norfolk, and the Wye Valley; in Auckland, New Zealand; in the Island of Apples and Summer Road of the Sidhe; at Hell's Gate; in the Tacit with its tombs; and in the hospitals and train stations of Purgatory.

    The new novel from the internationally bestselling, prizewinning, queen of Icelandic crime

    The police find out about the crime the way everyone does: on Snapchat. The video shows the terrified victim begging for forgiveness. When her body is found, it is marked with a number 2...

    Detective Huldar joins the investigation, bringing child psychologist Freyja on board to help question the murdered teenager's friends. Soon, they uncover that Stella was far from the angel people claim - but even so, who could have hated her enough to kill?

  • After The Flood
    After The Flood
    Life is about more than just surviving...

    An unforgettable, inventive, and riveting epic saga about a mother, her daughter and their struggle to survive in a post-apocalyptic flooded world, which signals the arrival of an extraordinary new talent.

    It's 2031, and the world has been utterly transformed. After years of rising floodwaters, all that's left is an archipelago of mountaintop colonies surrounded by a deep expanse of open water. Civilization as it once was is gone. Bands of pirates roam the waters, in search of goods and women to breed. Some join together to create a new kind of society, while others sail alone, barely surviving.

    Myra and her young daughter, Pearl, survive by fishing from their small boat, visiting small hamlets and towns on dry land to trade for supplies and information. The sole purpose of Myra's existence is to protect Pearl, while mourning the loss of her oldest daughter, Row, who was kidnapped during the last terrifying storm surge.

    For eight years Myra has searched for the girl that she knows, in her bones and her heart, still lives. In a violent confrontation with a stranger, Myra hears that Row was last seen in a far-off encampment of raiders on the coast of what used to be Greenland. Throwing aside her usual caution, she and Pearl embark on a perilous voyage into the icy northern seas to rescue her.

    A compulsively readable novel of dark despair and soaring hope, After the Flood is a magnificent, exhilarating, action-packed, and sometimes frightening odyssey laced with wonder - an affecting and wholly original saga, both redemptive and astonishing.

  • Age of Anxiety
    Age of Anxiety
    THE AGE OF ANXIETY is a great rock novel, but that is one of the less important things about it. The narrator is a brilliant creation - cultured, witty and unreliable. The novel captures the craziness of the music business and displays Pete Townshend's sly sense of humour and sharp ear for dialogue. First conceived as an opera, THE AGE OF ANXIETY deals with mythic and operatic themes including a maze, divine madness and long-lost children. Hallucinations and soundscapes haunt this novel, which on one level is an extended meditation on manic genius and the dark art of creativity.

    Agent Running in the Field
    Nat, a 47 year-old veteran of Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, believes his years as an agent runner are over. He is back in London with his wife, the long-suffering Prue. But with the growing threat from Moscow Centre, the office has one more job for him. Nat is to take over The Haven, a defunct substation of London General with a rag-tag band of spies. The only bright light on the team is young Florence, who has her eye on Russia Department and a Ukrainian oligarch with a finger in the Russia pie.

    Nat is not only a spy, he is a passionate badminton player. His regular Monday evening opponent is half his age- the introspective and solitary Ed. Ed hates Brexit, hates Trump and hates his job at some soulless media agency. And it is Ed, of all unlikely people, who will take Prue, Florence and Nat himself down the path of political anger that will ensnare them all. Agent Running in the Field is a chilling portrait of our time, now heartbreaking, now darkly humorous, told to us with unflagging tension by the greatest chronicler of our age.

  • Ahabs Return or The Last Voyage
    Ahabs Return or The Last Voyage
    A bold and intriguing fabulist novel that reimagines one of the most legendary characters in American literature-Captain Ahab of Herman Melville's Moby Dick-from the critically acclaimed Edgar and World Fantasy Award-winning author of The Girl in the Glass and The Shadow Year

    At the end of a long journey, Captain Ahab returns to the mainland to discover that he is a dead man-a walking ghost, whose tragic demise was detailed in a notorious fiction called Moby Dick. The consternated captain is eager to confront the true author of the novel, his former shipmate Ishmael. For Ahab was not pulled into the ocean's depths by a harpoon line, and the greatly exaggerated rumors of his untimely death have caused him grievous harm-after receiving news of Ahab's fate, his wife and son, Gabriel, left Nantucket for New York, and now Ahab is on a desperate quest to reunite with them.

    Ahab's pursuit leads him to the Gorgon's Mirror, the sensationalist tabloid that employed Ishmael as a copy editor while he wrote the haunting tale of the ill-fated Pequod. In the penny press's office, Ahab meets George Harrow, a clever and inspired opportunist and a master of hokum. Eager to exploit Ahab's misadventures, he strikes a deal with the captain: the newspaperman will help him navigate the city to find his lost family in exchange for the exclusive story of his salvation from the mouth of the great white whale.

    Their investigation-like Ahab's own story-takes unexpected, dangerous, and ultimately tragic turns, and leads Ahab and Harrow on a wondrous odyssey from the docks of lower Manhattan to the treacherous Five Points and subterranean opium dens, to the free black settlement of Seneca Village and the magnificent New York Crystal Palace, and to the Indian Caves and the wilds of northern Manhattan. For Ahab, Harrow, and the diverse cohort of allies they enlist in their quest, the trail ends in an epic battle with a mysterious, seemingly magical, entity who thrives in the shadows and feasts on the nativist sentiments roiling New York-the grotesque Malbaster, who directs his horde of violent street urchins, the Jolly Host, to prey on the innocent, most notably the city's new immigrants and blacks. But his most powerful weapon is a terrifying creature whose existence may be entwined with the captain's own past.

    Told with wisdom, suspense, a modicum of dry humor and horror, and a vigorous stretching of the truth, Ahab's Return charts an enthralling and intriguing voyage involving one of the most memorable characters in classic literature, and pays homage to one of the greatest novels ever written. It is a love letter to a dangerous, thrilling, and colorful New York long past as well as an exploration of the art of literature and the imaginative power of stories to illuminate the truths of life and reveal who we are.

    Akin
    Noah Selvaggio is a retired chemistry professor and widower living on the Upper West Side, but born in the South of France. He is days away from his long-awaited first trip back to Nice, but he receives a call from social services: Noah is the closest available relative of his eleven-year-old great-nephew and he urgently needs someone to take him in.

    Plagued by guilt and a feeling of duty to his dead sister, Noah agrees to foster the kid 'just for couple of weeks' and takes him along on his visit to Nice. This unlikely duo, both feeling adrift in their lives and suffering from culture shock, argue about everything from steak frites to Snapchat.

    Noah is disappointed by how much Nice has changed since he left. When sharp-eyed Michael identifies the historic Hotel Excelsior in one of Noah's photographs, they decide to check in - but once inside their luxury suite, Noah's perception of his ancestral heritage starts to crack.

    Shocking stories of the Nazi occupation surface: a hotel re-purposed for torture, a secret resistance movement, and Noah's mysterious mother on the front lines of history. As dark truths about this famous tourist mecca come to light, Noah learns to appreciate Michael's street-smart wit and ease with technology. He finally grasps the great risks people in all ages have taken for their kin.
