The Royal Star, the most exclusive cruise ship in the world, has just set sail from Miami on its inaugural voyage. For the hundred or so notable and well-heeled passengers, including Zack Chasteen, and his wife, Barbara, the itinerary is a secret and the week ahead promises to be an ultra-indulgent tropical sojourn. But just an hour out of port, gunmen take over the Royal Star, killing most of the officers and sequestering passengers throughout the ship. Not only is Zack separated from Barbara, he has another worry —Barbara is eight months pregnant with their first child and could go into labor at any moment. As Zack and his fellow captives struggle to get an upper hand, the ship's hijackers offer few clues to their motives. Maybe it's a simple kidnap/extortion plot. Or maybe the hijackers are bent on more devious ends – using the Royal Star as a giant torpedo to blow up another cruise ship. Either way, Zack must figure out a way to stop them--while keeping himself and his wife alive.

I enjoyed the character of Rachel Markham very much. A delightful and cozy read. Did it again! July 4, 2014 By Stayce Einnyen Once again P.B. has given us a lovely book. All I can say that is negative about the story, is I wish they were longer. I hope we get to see loads more of Rachel and Jeremy. Thank you for giving us these delightful books. By Ellen Grosson February 27, 2015 A little mystery filled with English characters and foibles. Light easy reading, something good for a long cold night. A book reminiscent of Agatha Christie, cozy and comfortable like a warm fire and a cup of coffee.

I highly recommend it to lovers of all things British. 5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!, August 20, 2013 By Jessica Strong This is such a well written story. It truly is a wonderful book and I am sure that it is more than comparable to Agatha Christie. The time period is well researched and is informative of the time just after the war in England. I look forward to the next in the series. Good story! February 20, 2015 By E. Donahue Good story, also just finished "Murder at Ravenrock" and it is equally as good.

It’s 1965, and London’s Kings Road is Swinging. Red coated Chelsea Pensioners are shuffling along the pavements proudly brandishing their three, WW1 medals known affectionately as Pip, Squeak and Wilfred, next to plastic coated André Courrèges clad models and bell-bottomed hairdressers. Life for the young, beautiful model, Charlotte Trubshaw is spoilt and hedonistic. Although her parents were killed when she was a child, in a mysterious accident on La Turbie overlooking Monaco, she and her sister Pippa, have passed through high society schools and led comfortable, sheltered lives, brought up by their wealthy grandparents on secluded Duck’s Island, near London’s Richmond Bridge. Charlotte regularly puffs on a spliff, forgets to ring her agent and steals the latest frock from Biba on Saturday afternoons. She naïvely believes everyone, including her agent Gavin Robinson and the lecherous Count Sergei Belevsky-Zhukovsky, a Russian playboy, KGB agent and freelance informer, who has plans to sell the green-eyed beauty in Barcelona. The grandparents love their girls and have never told them about their colourful and dangerous past or their work as professional assassins for the British government. Sam fell in love the moment he saw Phaedra through his rifle site, splashing in the Aegean Sea during the Nazi occupation of Greece. Phaedra’s love for him grew from the funeral pyres of her entire family at the Kalavryta massacre, when Sam saved her and the village from a burning church where the Nazis had trapped them. They have been together everyday since, even when Sam goes to work. Back in the 60’s, when the experienced assassins execute a Mafia Godfather in Paris’ magnificent Marais, they have no idea that the repercussions will involve them with the escaped Nazi, Fräulein Ilse Klup, the grotesquely deformed Marco Sotori and their secret society, the Fondazione Nazionale di Cristo, which steals and sells babies with the help of the Spanish Catholic Church. In 1907, the famous Grimaldi Circo travelled constantly like Gnus searching for rich pastures, from snow-white Russia to the azure Mediterranean, and pitched their enormous tent in Piombino, Italy. A headstrong mother, Jullietta Fratellini, Europe’s greatest trapeze artist, has dumped young Zamo in the circus like a cuckoo. Her philosophy is simple: ‘Like a female leopard, make you babies with the best man you can find, keep your heart locked up tightly, then move on, and when the kids could fend for themselves, chase them off as well. One day, even they would try to take your place at the top.’ After all, for Jullietta, nothing was more important than being the best flyer in the world. After an accident, young Zamo is sent away from the circus to work as a stable boy at the lavish, Somerleyton Manor in Kent, where he meets two women who also risk their lives, not in the canvas sky of the circus, but on the streets of London, fighting for women’s rights. The gentile Lady Margaret Henrietta Trubshaw of Somerleyton Manor and the abused schoolteacher Megan Wodehouse are unlikely friends. Although when the self-reliant Megan, who has rejected the unrequited love of Doctor John Gale for the past two years, plans to sink a battleship under Tower Bridge, bringing London to a standstill, Lady Margaret, Zamo and the Doctor in ignorance of the plan have no choice, but to stand with the Suffragist campaigner in the largest women’s demonstration the British authorities have ever seen. As the disparate lives of the central protagonists unfold and blend together, on the final night in Franco’s fascist controlled Barcelona, Sam and Phaedra discover that the contract they had feared, not only puts their own lives at risk, but also that of their kidnapped granddaughter Charlotte. The only way Sam can save his family and innocent bystanders is to fulfil the fatal prophecy he was told by the soothsayer when he was a child in the Grimaldi Circo, fifty-seven-years earlier.

After ten years in New Zealand, Joe Bennett asked himself what on earth he was doing there. Other than his dogs, what was it about these two small islands on the edge of the world that had kept him - an otherwise restless traveller - for really much longer than they seemed to deserve? Bennett thought he'd better pack his bag and find out. Hitching around both the intriguingly named North and South Islands, with an eye for oddity and a taste for conversation, Bennett began to remind himself of the reasons New Zealand is quietly seducing the rest of the world.

By the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Killers of the Flower Moon, a powerful true story of adventure and obsession in the Antarctic, lavishly illustrated with color photographs Henry Worsley was a devoted husband and father and a decorated British special forces officer who believed in honor and sacrifice. He was also a man obsessed. He spent his life idolizing Ernest Shackleton, the nineteenth-century polar explorer, who tried to become the first person to reach the South Pole, and later sought to cross Antarctica on foot. Shackleton never completed his journeys, but he repeatedly rescued his men from certain death, and emerged as one of the greatest leaders in history. Worsley felt an overpowering connection to those expeditions. He was related to one of Shackleton's men, Frank Worsley, and spent a fortune collecting artifacts from their epic treks across the continent. He modeled his military command on Shackleton's legendary skills and was determined to measure his own powers of endurance against them. He would succeed where Shackleton had failed, in the most brutal landscape in the world. In 2008, Worsley set out across Antarctica with two other descendants of Shackleton's crew, battling the freezing, desolate landscape, life-threatening physical exhaustion, and hidden crevasses. Yet when he returned home he felt compelled to go back. On November 13, 2015, at age 55, Worsley bid farewell to his family and embarked on his most perilous quest: to walk across Antarctica alone. David Grann tells Worsley's remarkable story with the intensity and power that have led him to be called "simply the best narrative nonfiction writer working today." Illustrated with more than fifty stunning photographs from Worsley's and Shackleton's journeys, The White Darkness is both a gorgeous keepsake volume and a spellbinding story of courage, love, and a man pushing himself to the extremes of human capacity.
