Fifty years after the events of ALTERED CARBON, Takeshi Kovacs is serving as a mercenary in the Procterate-sponsored war to put down Joshuah Kemp's revolution on the planet Sanction IV. He is offered the chance to join a covert team chasing a prize whose value is limitless -- and whose dangers are endless. Here is a novel that takes mankind to the brink. A breakneck-paced crime thriller, ALTERED CARBON took its readers deep into the universe Morgan had so compellingly realised without ever letting them escape the onward rush of the plot. BROKEN ANGELS melds SF, the war novel and the spy thriller to take the reader below the surface of this future and lay bare the treacheries, betrayals and follies that leave man so ill-prepared for the legacy he has been given: the stars. This is SF at its dizzying best: superb, yet subtle, world-building; strong yet sensitive characterisation; awesome yet believable technology, thilling yet profound writing. Richard Morgan is set to join the genre's world-wide elite.

As they came nearer, the black-clad body came into view, lying on its side in the shallows... One cold spring morning in County Cork, two fishermen find a body floating in the Blackwater River: the mutilated corpse of a retired music teacher. His hands and feet are bound, and his neck bears the mark of a garrotting wire. The Garda want to wrap this case up before the press get hold of it. But when a second man is found murdered, the body bears all the same marks as the first. And Detective Superintendent Katie Maguire fears this case carries the hallmark of a serial murderer...
Opal grabbed the largest of the angels, who was grasping a rather intimidating spear, and smashed her against the edge of the table. “What is sweet about three people killed?” Opal cried. But the angel's shattered body just reminded her ...

In rural western New York, three-year-old Layla Babcock disappears from her parents' mobile home. Her father, Jon Babcock, insists she is lost in the hundreds of acres of state forest land behind their home. But many residents in the nearby village of Welton suspect she has been kidnapped or murdered. Layla's mother, Abby, is deeply despondent and of little help. As the months pass by with no resolution, Abby disappears with her threadbare suitcase and a few belongings, leaving her husband and two teenage sons, Zach and Kyle, behind. Still more questions go unanswered. Did Abby run away from her abusive husband, or was she murdered? The townsfolk of Welton-everyone from the bikers at the Hotel Welton, the local watering hole, to the patrons of the Friday-evening fish fry at Shelly's Café-get caught up in the mystery and the family's misery. In the end, the long-awaited answers spring from rather unexpected sources, including angel visions of a café cook and the vandalized sculpture of an ex-New York City artist.

Evil preys upon the fallen. The third thriller in the Byrne and Balzano series by the Sunday Times bestselling author. When the first body is found, mutilated and strangled on the riverbanks, Philadelphia homicide detectives Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balzano suspect yet another case of random urban violence. Then it happens again. And again. Carefully dressed and posed, each victim seems to tell a story so gruesome that Byrne and Balzano struggle at first to make sense of the killer's dark and twisted imagination. But when they stumble upon a collection of old fairy tales, the fragile link between the murders suddenly becomes clear - and with it the terrifying conclusion of the killer's plan. Desperately, they try to anticipate the madman's next move, but as the body count rises, the killing spree spirals out of control ...

"Brilliant . . . Exceptional . . . The House of Broken Angels hums with joy." --NPR "A big, messy, warmhearted epic . . . Generous to the last breath." --Entertainment Weekly "Filled with intelligence and wickedly funny cultural commentary, the story builds to an electrifying finale." -- People Magazine Book of the Week "Humane and often laugh-out-loud hilarious." --O: The Oprah Magazine From a Pulitzer Prize finalist comes a powerful and unforgettable portrait of one Mexican American family and the American dream "One of the most vivid and engrossing family epics of the last twenty years."--Dave Eggers "All we do, mija, is love. Love is the answer. Nothing stops it. Not borders. Not death." In his final days, beloved and ailing patriarch Miguel Angel de La Cruz, affectionately called Big Angel, has summoned his entire clan for one last legendary birthday party. But as the party approaches, his mother, nearly one hundred, dies herself, leading to a farewell doubleheader in a single weekend. Among the guests is Big Angel's half brother, known as Little Angel, who must reckon with the truth that although he shares a father with his siblings, he has not, as a half gringo, shared a life. Across two bittersweet days in their San Diego neighborhood, the revelers mingle among the palm trees and cacti, celebrating the lives of Big Angel and his mother, and recounting the many inspiring tales that have passed into family lore, the acts both ordinary and heroic that brought these citizens to a fraught and sublime country and allowed them to flourish in the land they have come to call home. The story of the de La Cruzes is the quintessential American story. This indelible portrait of a complex family reminds us of what it means to be the first generation and to live two lives across one border. It takes us into a world we have not known, while reflecting back the hopes and dreams of our own families. Teeming with brilliance and humor, authentic at every turn, The House of Broken Angels is Luis Alberto Urrea at his best, and cements his reputation as a storyteller of the first rank.

The collective stories in this deeply moving and powerful book represent the thoughts and experiences of some of the most courageous women I know. They strive to come to grips with the unexplained tolerance and silence of others during their suffering as little girls. Much they have forgotten or their minds repressed in order to keep their sanity; to make a life for themselves in this sometimes hostile world. These wonderful women have tried to go on living as normal a life as they can; suppressing the rage bottled up inside them; repressing the horrible memories which haunt them. Many keep quiet about their suffering; not because they have nothing to say; but because they are supremely better in character and virtue than those men who abused them. Some of these men probably gloat in their seeming success in molesting these girls-now-women; thinking they got away scot-free, but they are so very long. These women will have their great character highlighted in Heaven's Hall of Fame; while these molesters will end up in the Hall of Shame. We salute these survivors; hope and pray that your stories will encourage and empower others. You have suffered in silence, now we hope that your stories will speak volumes to all decent men and women; that they may know the plight of millions of little girls, some already being abused, while others are targets for abuse by other molesters who deal in the inferior and dark world of incest and child sexual abuse. We pray that your lives will be changed and healed. Robert McElroy, D.Min., is a pastor in Terrell, Tx., a Pharmacist in Dallas, Tx. He received his BS (Fla. A&M Univ.); MA (Dallas Theological Seminary) and D.Min. (Southern Methodist Univ.). He is an author, lecturer, and friend.
