#1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci returns with his most breathtaking thriller yet! Will Robie and Jessica Reel are two of the most lethal people alive. They're the ones the government calls in when the utmost secrecy is required to take out those who plot violence and mass destruction against the United States. And through every mission, one man has always had their backs: their handler, code-named Blue Man. But now, Blue Man is missing. Last seen in rural Colorado, Blue Man had taken a rare vacation to go fly fishing in his hometown when he disappeared off the grid. With no communications since, the team can't help but fear the worst. Sent to investigate, Robie and Reel arrive in the small town of Grand to discover that it has its own share of problems. A stagnant local economy and a woefully understaffed police force have made this small community a magnet for crime, drugs, and a growing number of militant fringe groups. But lying in wait in Grand is an even more insidious and sweeping threat, one that may shake the very foundations of America. And when Robie and Reel find themselves up against an adversary with superior firepower and a home-court advantage, they'll be lucky if they make it out alive, with or without Blue Man . . .

Description :


"Professional athletes are pillars of their respective communities. They are heroes in the eyes of boys and girls and are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that positively represents their community." The public loves a good scandal. Seeing someone fall from the pinnacle of success makes a great headline. No one knows that better than I do. What started out as a promising career in college football, spiralled into scandal and shame. But being a hero is easier said than done. Especially when there are those who expected to see the great Brody Madden fail. I craved nothing except being the best-willing to do anything to prove them wrong. But I went too far, and I tried too hard, and it broke me. "At the time of going to print, Jordan Elliott was unavailable for comment." I met Brody Madden in my senior year of college. An Australian native on an international scholarship, I was the female soccer sensation with stars in her eyes and no room for a hotshot wide receiver with a chip on his shoulder. But a heart bursting with ambition and a driving fire to succeed isn't made of stone. I became his strength, his obsession, and the greatest love of his life. Only I wasn't there when he needed me most. This is a story about love and a game that takes everything. Where the path to glory is paved with sacrifice. Where pressure makes you, or breaks you, and triumph is born in the ashes of failure. Where two people's end game will change everything. *** 18+ recommended. Contains adult language and adult themes.

Description :


NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Who was Bobby Fischer? In this “nuanced perspective of the chess genius” (Los Angeles Times), an acclaimed biographer chronicles his meteoric rise and confounding fall, with an afterword containing newly discovered details about Fischer’s life. Possessing an IQ of 181 and remarkable powers of concentration, Bobby Fischer memorized hundreds of chess books in several languages, and he was only thirteen when he became the youngest chess master in U.S. history. But his strange behavior started early. In 1972, at the historic Cold War showdown in Reykjavik, Iceland, where he faced Soviet champion Boris Spassky, Fischer made headlines with hundreds of petty demands that nearly ended the competition. It was merely a prelude to what was to come. Arriving back in the United States to a hero’s welcome, Bobby was mobbed wherever he went—a figure as exotic and improbable as any American pop culture had yet produced. Commercial sponsorship offers poured in, ultimately topping $10 million—but Bobby demurred. Instead, he began tithing his limited money to an apocalyptic religion and devouring anti-Semitic literature. Bobby reemerged in 1992 to play Spassky in a multi-million dollar rematch—but when the dust settled, he was a wanted man, transformed into an international fugitive because of his decision to play in Montenegro despite U.S. sanctions. Fearing for his life, traveling with bodyguards, Bobby lived the life of a celebrity fugitive—one drawn increasingly to the bizarre. Drawing from Fischer family archives, recently released FBI files, and Bobby’s own emails, Endgame is unique in that it limns Bobby Fischer’s entire life—an odyssey that took the chess champion from an impoverished childhood to the covers of Time, Life and Newsweek to recognition as “the most famous man in the world” to notorious recluse.

Description :


"[I]t is the juxtaposition of factual and imaginary detail, real and fictitious characters, each underscored by footnotes or website research, that gives Theodore Cohen's work a "signature style" [that is] quite unique, enjoyable and thoroughly ingenious." Gary Sorkin for "Pacific Book Review" "End Game: Irrational Acts, Tragic Consequences," is Book III of the Antarctic Murders Trilogy. In many ways, it brings to an end three things: the sagas of Captain Roberto Munoz of the "Lientur," the hunt for the millions of dollars in U.S. and British cash, negotiable securities, gold coins, and jewelry stolen from the Banco Central de Chile following the Chilean Earthquake of May, 1960, and the murders that followed the robbery. Book I: "Frozen in Time: Murder at the Bottom of the World," introduced American scientists Ted Stone and Grant Morris, who, while performing geological and geophysical field work with the assistance of Captain Roberto Munoz of the Chilean auxiliary tug "Lientur," were caught up in the hunt for the robbers and the spoils from the robbery, and murder. "Unfinished Business: Pursuit of an Antarctic Killer," introduced Captain Mateo Valderas and Lieutenant-Commander Antonio Del Rio of the Chilean Navy's Office of Internal Affairs. Initially assigned to solve a murder in Arica, they soon found themselves facing perhaps the most vicious, cunning thief and murderer they ever encountered. The return of American scientists Ted Stone and Grant Morris to Santiago for the purpose of helping personnel of the University of Chile prepare for the 20th Chilean Expedition to the Antarctic, beginning in December 1965, jeopardizes the lives of both scientists. What irrational acts will elicit the tragic consequences that finally bring everything to an end? For the answer, read Book III: "End Game: Irrational Acts, Tragic Consequences." "Cutting-edge drama and suspense, revealing characters through convincing dialog, provides the Antarctic Murders Trilogy with all the elements of award-winning, best-selling novels." Richard Blake for "Readers Views"

With the Japanese withdrawing, Slim's 14 Army, compromising the IV and XXXIII Corps, risked a perilous and punishing crossing of the mighty Irrawaddy at Mandalay opposed by the main Japanese army. To avoid this, Slim boldly decided to split his Army and send IV Corps on an arduous 300 mile march to seize the vital rail and road hub and the main Japanese administrative base of Meiktila, 85 miles south ... In this detailed analysis of this masterly manoeuvre, the author describes the plan, the risks, the actions, the seemingly insuperable logistic problems, and the efforts to retain US air support"--Jacket.
