One man. One hour. One million people to save... Over the remote central Pacific, an airliner is rocked by a massive explosion and plummets into the ocean, leaving no survivors. Twelve hundred miles away in Hawaii, Kai Tanaka, the acting director of the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre in Honolulu, notes a minor seismic disturbance but doesn't make the connection with the lost airplane. He has no reason to worry about his wife, manager of a luxury hotel, or his daughter, who is enjoying the sunshine at Waikiki beach. But when all contact with neighbouring Christmas Island is lost, Kai is the first to realize that Hawaii faces an epic catastrophe: in one hour, a series of massive waves will wipe out Honolulu. He has just sixty minutes to save the lives of a million people, including his wife and daughter... Addictive and fast-paced, The Tsunami Countdown pitches an ordinary man against the odds in an electrifying and action-packed thriller. You won't be able to put it down.

American archaeologist Nina Wilde and her husband, ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie Chase, search for King Midas’s legacy in the latest thrilling adventure in Andy McDermott’s globe-spanning series. For Nina Wilde and her ex-SAS husband Eddie Chase, locating the legendary lost city of Atlantis was just the beginning of an even greater quest: to discover what mysterious treasure drew an ancient Atlantean explorer to the Himalayas. But they’re unaware of the risks they face, the secrets gathering around them, and the powerful forces desperate to possess history’s greatest prize. High in the snowbound peaks, Nina and Eddie uncover a cave guarded by Buddhist monks. There, a shadowy enemy awaits them. And after a vicious battle, Nina finds herself with a fragment of a millennia-old puzzle—and questions only one person can answer: her long-lost grandmother. Drawing on her family’s painful secrets, Nina gains knowledge that will lead her and Eddie from a remote Icelandic retreat to the Hermit Kingdom of North Korea—and expose the shocking truth about the mythical King Midas and a terrifying plot that could doom all humankind.
