Sunday Times Top-Ten Bestseller and Richard and Judy Book Club Choice. I´ll risk my life for you. On 24 November Yasmin and her ten-year-old daughter Ruby set off on a journey across Northern Alaska. They´re searching for Ruby´s father, missing in the arctic wilderness. More isolated with each frozen mile they cover, they travel deeper into an endless night. And Ruby, deaf since birth, must brave the darkness where sight cannot guide her. She won´t abandon her father. But winter has tightened its grip, and there is somebody out there who wants to stop them. Somebody tracking them through the dark. Praise for The Quality of Silence: ´There are many things to love about Lupton´s third novel, not least its stunning evocation of the stark, beautiful Alaskan wilds. An elegant and icily unique thriller: you won´t read anything like it this year´ Observer ´Scary, suspenseful and so exquisitely, evocatively written. I found myself shivering as if I were there in Alaska with Ruby and her mother. Everything you want in a wonderful novel´ Liane Moriarty, author of The Husband´s Secret ´Ambitious and imaginative. Narrated in part by Ruby (her deafness is treated with great sensitivity), the landscape, wildlife and bitter climate of Alaska are powerfully drawn. Chilling in every sense, you won´t want to step away from this story´ Sunday Mirror ´A sophisticated thriller which brilliantly evokes the sublime and terrifying landscape of Alaska, the culture of the Inupiat people and the fragility of our planet´ Sunday Telegraph ´Like a breath of icy air, this relentlessly tense thriller is also a child´s-eye family drama like none other. Not since Miss Smilla´s Feeling for Snow have I shivered like this´ Emma Donoghue, author of Room ´Will have you gripped form start to finish´ Cosmopolitan ´A taut psychological thriller, The Quality of Silence will have your heart thumping. Masterful pacing, riveting plotting. Absolutely gripping´ Louise Penny ´A literary slow burn, whose focus is as much on human endurance and a mother´s relationship with her deaf daughter as the mystery of her husband´s disappearance. This is Lupton at the height of her storytelling powers´ Daily Mail ´A beautifully written thriller, and the way in which Lupton used the tundra as a metaphor for grief and faith in stunning. The voice of Ruby and her compassionate exploration of a life without sound only adds to the richness of the book´ Press and Journal ´A wonderful writer . . . absolutely gripping´ Jane Garvey, BBC Radio 2 Women´s Hour ´The pressure is on to keep creating equally brilliant stores [and] Lupton has done that with The Quality of Silence´ Red Magazine ´An elegant, chilling read from a writer who continues to stretch the bounds of suspense´ William Landay, author of Defending Jacob
Nicolette Scott is an archaeologist whose knowledge of early airplanes has won her kudos as an expert, a reputation for ignoring authority, and a job at the Smithsonian. Shortly after she begins working there, she is thrilled to be included in the museum´s latest project. E-Group, a large pharmaceutical company, is equipping an expedition to a remote region of Alaska, where a Japanese ´´Val´´ bomber plane was shot down during World War II. It´s a gamble, but the money is being provided, and if the small group of experts can locate the plane and somehow bring it back to Washington, it will be a coup - and a boost for Nicolette´s career. Not long after the search begins, Nicolette is shocked to discover that there is a darker reason for E-Group´s generous sponsorship. The expedition´s real goal reaches all the way back to the great Spanish flu epidemic of 1918 - 1919, grimly nicknamed ´´the Spanish Lady,´´ which killed millions around the world. The virus of this flu still exists in those few victims who are preserved in frozen ground - and once the pharmaceutical company learns that three World War I veterans searching Alaska for gold had died of the disease near the Val, they will do everything in their power to get their hands on the bodies. Unless Nicolette risks her own life to defuse E-Group´s nefarious plan, the lives of hundreds of millions will be at stake. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Angela Brazil.

Zach had been searching for an adventure worthy of a vampire. In the harsh beauty of a Siberian lake, he found it. An ancient burial site brings mystery and danger to vampires who have walked this world for over 1,000 years. As he surveys the stunning, icy landscape and considers his next adventure, the woman he´d left two years ago, a magnificent older vampire, has finally decided that she loves him...hasn´t she? She shows up, aggressive, sexy, and jealous of the beautiful vampire he´s traveled to Siberia with, to stake her claim.

In a frozen land, she finally finds him to let him know that she´d lied. It´s just that it´s so hard to actually admit it, to give away her heart so that it can be stomped on.

He makes her laugh, he´s a spectacular lover, and most of all, she knows that he loves her, no matter how tough that is to do.

If you are reading this, then myself and my kind are long gone. And this book is most likely battered and torn and eroded from the dirt. I pray to Agodah (the creator of everything) that the words and meanings do not change because of translation and speculation or because this parchment is no longer whole or has been smudged in the sands of time. After discovering an ancient book that was frozen deep under the ice in Greenland, John and Sarah find themselves on a spectacular adventure. Bound together by fate, they are forced to solve a mystery that has been waiting for them for millennia. They soon find proof of an ancient civilization who lived here on Earth thousands of centuries before us. Searching for answers and finding only more questions, they realize that they just might be the only two people on the planet who can save mankind and the modern world from devastation and extinction. Throughout the Earth´s history, it has been on a grand cycle of growth, cleansing and renewal, each era bringing new life and new beginnings to a new civilization. This is a fast-paced adventure that will captivate and intrigue you. You won’t want to put it down. It invokes vivid imagery as well as emotional connection to the characters, and it takes the listener on a grand adventure to save mankind. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Geoff Metcalf.

Two little girls, frozen in black and white. One picture worth killing for.The Civil Rights Movement is less than a distant memory to Lisa Waldren - it is someone else’s memory altogether, passed on to her through the pages of history. Her life as a federal prosecutor in Boston feels utterly remote from the marches in the South that changed her father’s generation - and the entire nation - forever. But the truth is, she was there. When a photograph surfaces showing a blond, four-year-old Lisa playing with an African-American girl at a civil rights march in Fort Worth, Lisa is faced with a jarring revelation: the girls may have been the only witnesses who observed the real killer of civil rights leader Benjamin Gray...and therefore the only ones who can exonerate the death row inmate falsely accused of the murder. Soon, Lisa finds herself in the dangerous world her father had shielded her from as a child. After some searching, the Waldrens find the other little girl from the photo and, in the process, uncover conspiracy mere steps away from the likes of Bobby Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and J. Edgar Hoover. Based on real events and a photograph snapped by author Lis Wiehl’s own G-man father, Snapshot is a remarkably original marriage of mystery and history. 1. Language: English.

For Aloysius Tucker, taking his nine-year-old cousin Maria sledding is all about frozen toes and hot coffee in the warming house. It shouldn´t involve chasing after Maria as she´s led into a long black car by a stranger in a Bruins jacket. But by the end of the crisp December morning, Maria is gone, her mother is dead, and her father - Mafia don Sal - has been arrested for murder.Sensing blood in the water, would-be successors to Sal´s criminal empire square off, agreeing on nothing but the idea that Sal´s blood relative, Tucker, needs to be eliminated. Searching for Maria through subzero days and nights, Tucker persists even as his relentless efforts draw him into a deadly crossfire between every power-hungry crook in Boston.Praise:´´Daniel is more than generous with the violence, guilt, tweets, craft brews, and compassion.´´ (Kirkus Reviews)´´[An] enjoyable if complex third book of murder and mayhem with a...satisfying whirlwind of a resolution.´´ (Publishers Weekly)´´The third Tucker outing features a gripping plot and engaging characters who are sure to satisfy readers of Vincent Lardo, Joseph Finder, and John Hart.´´ (Library Journal) 1.
