SAS 195 Panique à Bamako
Author: Gérard de Villiers
Publisher: Gérard de Villiers - SAS
Lorsque Malko arrive au Mali, appelé par la CIA afin de reprendre une manip tortueuse visant à découvrir les intentions des groupes islamistes qui viennent de s’emparer de tout le nord du pays, la situation est désespérée. Désormais, à Tombouctou et à Gao, les « Fous de Dieu » d’AQMI, de NASAR-DINE ou du MUJAO sont seulement à quinze heures de piste de la capitale du Mali, Bamako. Quand et comment vont-ils frapper ? Problème : il n’y a plus aucune force militaire pour les stopper, l’armée malienne s’étant évaporée. Seule solution : découvrir leurs intentions et un moyen de les contrer qui n’existe apparemment pas. Tout va reposer sur les épaules de Malko qui a en face de lui des adversaires féroces et rusés. Lorsque sa source revient de GAO transformé en bombe humaine, destinée à les transformer tous les deux en chaleur et lumière, tout semble perdu. C’est un concours de circonstances extraordinaire qui va lui permettre, in extremis, de renverser la situation.

A high-tension, sexy, political thriller in which freelance CIA agent Malko Linge brings a project to his bosses that could blow open a ring of Russian spies operating in the United States. First English-language publication. At a benefit dinner, Austrian playboy and CIA freelancer Malko Linge meets an intriguing woman, Zhanna Khrenkov, who has an unusual proposal. She will disclose everything she knows about her husband Alexei's business if Malko will get rid of Alexei's younger, British mistress. Appalled, Malko refuses--until Zhanna reveals her husband's real job: head of a ring of Russian spies operating undercover inside the U.S. For Malko's CIA contacts, this is a highly necessary job; for Malko, it is a highly sensitive one. He will move cautiously from Vienna to London to Moscow, trying to find the right balance of winning Zhanna's trust without compromising his moral integrity. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A Kingdom in Crisis
Author: Andrew MacGregor Marshall
Publisher: Zed Books Ltd.
‘Perhaps the best introduction yet to the roots of Thailand’s present political impasse. A brilliant book.’ Simon Long, The Economist Struggling to emerge from a despotic past, and convulsed by an intractable conflict that will determine its future, Thailand stands at a defining moment in its history. Scores have been killed on the streets of Bangkok. Freedom of speech is routinely denied. Democracy appears increasingly distant. And many Thais fear that the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej is expected to unleash even greater instability. Yet in spite of the impact of the crisis, and the extraordinary importance of the royal succession, they have never been comprehensively analysed – until now. Breaking Thailand's draconian lèse majesté law, Andrew MacGregor Marshall is one of the only journalists covering contemporary Thailand to tell the whole story. Marshall provides a comprehensive explanation that for the first time makes sense of the crisis, revealing the unacknowledged succession conflict that has become entangled with the struggle for democracy in Thailand.

Jamais les dix-sept membres du parti revolutionnaire ne s'etaient vus a pareille fete et ils entretenaient, avec une habilete diabolique, cette agitation que le maire, M. Dubenoit, combattait avec l'energie du desespere. Le Reveil de Nord-et-Cher avait publie, vers midi, une seconde edition plus incendiaire encore que celle du matin. Et illustree! Grace a un vieux cliche, trouve dans les caves de l'imprimerie, Blaireau etait represente charge de chaines, accroupi dans un hideux cachot qu'eclairait un soupirail etroit mais outrageusement grillage. Des betes de toutes sortes grouillaient sur le sol humide de cet in-pace. Comme legende, ces simples mots: Un innocent, a Montpaillard, a la fin du dixneuvieme siecle.. Un exemplaire de ce journal avait ete apporte a Blaireau par son ami Victor, le gardien.--Tiens, regarde ca, mon vieux! Ils t'en ont fait une tete!--Je ne suis pas de ton avis, repond Blaireau avec conviction. Moi, je me trouve bien ressemblant.--Mon pauvre Blaireau!--Attends un peu, Victor, je vais leur en fiche, moi, du pauvre Blaireau!--Comment tu vas sortir bientot et tu n'es pas content!--Ah! fichtre non, je ne suis pas content! Et je vais leur montrer de quel bois il se chauffe, le pauvre Blaireau!--A qui donc en veux-tu si fort?--A qui j'en veux? Mais aux gens du Parquet, a ce vieux serin de Dubenoit, a tous ces mauvais gars dela gendarmerie. Attends un petit peu que je sois sorti!--Tu ne les mangeras pas...

Publisher: Open Road Media
An Apollo 11 astronaut and the Nebula Award–nominated author of Directive 51 present a novel that “conveys the wonder and promise of space” (Publishers Weekly). Born the year of the Moon landing, Chris Terence spends his life fighting to return humanity to that pinnacle. An engineering student with dreams of spaceflight, he finds upon graduation that the United States no longer has need for astronauts. Years of bureaucratic meddling have reduced the space program to a shell of itself, and it will take the greatest scientific find in history to send humanity skyward once more. After years battling budget hawks, Chris finally gets his chance to walk on the Moon. While there, he finds evidence of an ancient alien civilization, the Tiberians, who visited Earth’s satellite eight thousand years before. Understanding what happened to those long-forgotten travelers will define the lives of Chris and his son, as they fight against all odds to unlock the secrets of the universe. “The collaboration of the first man to pilot a moon lander (Aldrin) with a major voice in contemporary science fiction (Barnes) has produced a fascinating chronicle of man’s first encounter with alien intelligence” (Booklist).
