Making your fortune could cost you your life! Set in 1980s London, The Hacker Chronicles is a tale of gangsters, crime, and the birth of the digital revolution. Computer whiz Peter has set up an online network which attracts the wrong crowd: criminals who embraced technology to hide their dirty dealings. Peter got rich, then got in too deep and ended up running for his life. The only way he could survive was to fake his own death. Now the ruthless American gangsters he was in partnership with have discovered he is still breathing; and they have put a price on his head. A Boy Soldier Adam is twelve. He's not like other children. He's been honed to be the ultimate weapon - a boy soldier who is ruthless, and will obey orders without question. When the sinister government program that created him is shut down, he becomes surplus to requirements; an embarrassment to the powers that be. Peter is persuaded to shelter Adam, and they form an unlikely partnership to help bring down the criminals who want to kill Peter. A Deadly Assassin Dee is a psychopath, a serial killer, and a paid assassin. This is a woman who really, really loves her work! Beautiful, sexy, and deadly, she lures men into her clutches and then butchers them. She's determined to fulfill her contract to kill Peter - but not before she messes with his head and lures him into her bed. How will Peter escape from the forces arrayed against him? 1.

COSTA BOOK AWARD WINNER: BOOK OF THE YEAR • #1 SUNDAY TIMES (UK) BESTSELLER "Superbly written and breathtakingly researched, The Volunteer smuggles us into Auschwitz and shows us—as if watching a movie—the story of a Polish agent who infiltrated the infamous camp, organized a rebellion, and then snuck back out. ... Fairweather has dug up a story of incalculable value and delivered it to us in the most compelling prose I have read in a long time.” —Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm and Tribe The incredible true story of a Polish resistance fighter's infiltration of Auschwitz to sabotage the camp from within, and his death-defying attempt to warn the Allies about the Nazis' plans for a "Final Solution” before it was too late. To uncover the fate of the thousands being interred at a mysterious Nazi camp on the border of the Reich, a thirty-nine-year-old Polish resistance fighter named Witold Pilecki volunteered for an audacious mission: assume a fake identity, intentionally get captured and sent to the new camp, and then report back to the underground on what had happened to his compatriots there. But gathering information was not his only task: he was to execute an attack from inside—where the Germans would least expect it. The name of the camp was Auschwitz. Over the next two and half years, Pilecki forged an underground army within Auschwitz that sabotaged facilities, assassinated Nazi informants and officers, and gathered evidence of terrifying abuse and mass murder. But as he pieced together the horrifying truth that the camp was to become the epicenter of Nazi plans to exterminate Europe's Jews, Pilecki realized he would have to risk his men, his life, and his family to warn the West before all was lost. To do so, meant attempting the impossible—an escape from Auschwitz itself. Completely erased from the historical record by Poland's post-war Communist government, Pilecki remains almost unknown to the world. Now, with exclusive access to previously hidden diaries, family and camp survivor accounts, and recently declassified files, Jack Fairweather offers an unflinching portrayal of survival, revenge and betrayal in mankind's darkest hour. And in uncovering the tragic outcome of Pilecki's mission, he reveals that its ultimate defeat originated not in Auschwitz or Berlin, but in London and Washington.
