Galactic war rages. The human race continues to aid Kalaran in his battle against Qorall, but hope is fading. Humanity is still struggling to survive on Esperia, pitted against the treacherous Alicians. The ruthless invader Qorall has unleashed a devastating new weapon that is ravaging the galaxy. In a desperate attempt to combat this new horror, a dormant race is awakened. But could this race prove to be an even worse threat?
Through economics, our politicians have the power to transform people's lives for better or worse. Think Deng Xiaoping who lifted millions out of poverty by opening up China; Franklin D Roosevelt whose 'New Deal' helped the USA break free of the Great Depression; or Peron and his successors in Argentina who brought the country to the brink of ruin. In this magisterial history, economist and politician Vince Cable examines the legacy of 16 world leaders who transformed their countries' economic fortunes and who also challenged economic convention.
The heart-stopping third episode in the Eden Paradox series. After 18 years, the quarantine that has protected humanity’s survivors on the planet Esperia is about to end. Mankind won't stand a chance without external help. Yet in the middle of a galactic war, who is concerned about one small planet when worlds fall every day?
DI Jack Dawes is called into investigating the death of a woman found with her throat slit on a snowy London street, 12 days before Christmas. A man, seen standing over the body, has yet to be discovered. Then Jack is sent away to shed light on a grisly death on the Shetland Islands. The corpse of another young woman lies sprawled underneath the tower of secluded Doomdochry Castle. It looks like suicide, but DI Dawes suspects foul play. The sinister MacAlister family will do everything it can to bar Jack from uncovering the truth.
Instantly acquire all the knowledge you need to pass as an expert in the world of football. Never again be found wanting when asked what Albert Camus said about the ‘beautiful’ game, why a surprising number of other famous writers and thinkers opted to play ‘between the sticks’, why a rotation system is not to be confused with a revolving door management policy and why an impressive collection of trophies is no way to describe the perma-tanned WAGs in the directors’ box.
Rosemary and Dick Brown move into a beautiful, secluded house on Gallows Green in the idyllic Somerset village of Lullington Barrow. It seems like a dream come true. But is it too good to be true? The tight-knit community closes ranks when asked about the previous residents. The charming village takes on an even more sinister hue when Rosemary’s sister, Corrie, and her husband, DI Jack Dawes, come to visit and a local man is found dead at the bottom of a slurry pit, his body wrapped in a feed sack.
Detective Inspector Jack Dawes and his bride, Corrie, join eight other holidaymakers bound for a tiny Greek island, ready for a bit of sun, sea and sand. Mayhem ensues when a storm destroys the island’s primitive communications, cutting it off from civilisation. It’s a perfect opportunity for murder. First one victim is poisoned, followed swiftly by another. Then a woman is found badly beaten in a quiet cove and a body is found in a grotto to St. Sophia, the island’s patron saint. The island’s visitors are being picked off one by one.
In 2063, Earth's overheated climate and war-ravaged cities are near breaking point. A new habitable planet is discovered within reach, but the first two missions have failed to return. This is the story of the third mission to Eden. What really awaits the crew of four as they make the long journey to this supposedly uninhabited virgin planet, and what is the link to the secret 900-year-old sect known as Alicians back on Earth? While Blake leads the Eden mission, a young researcher named Micah discovers a terrible truth that threatens the very existence of humanity.
Survivors are fleeing Earth, into a hostile galaxy where alien intelligence and weaponry rule. Can a deserted planet offer refuge? Or will the genetically engineered Alicians finish the job started on Eden? While Blake fends off attacks, Micah seeks allies, but his plan backfires, and humanity finds itself on trial for its very right to exist.

They band together to keep such savage goings-on out of the headlines and demand a discreet police cover-up. Detective Inspector Jack Dawes is on the case, but his investigation keeps hitting dead-ends. Jack is left scrambling to find a crack in the town’s facade. Then another body is found in a skip, a bullet lodged between the eyes.
The time has come. The Creator is the most powerful entity in the known universe. Protected by the walls of its dark sphere, it constructs vast machines designed to wipe out entire species. So far, it has not encountered significant resistance. Times change. Keller and Nation are given their most dangerous mission yet. Sent into the depths of the dark sphere, they must do whatever it takes to wipe out this deadly alien entity. It’s never easy and the stakes have never been higher. In the Creator’s realm, there are no guarantees.
Humanity’s first engagements with the invading Trivar have not gone to plan and the aliens have shown no mercy in destroying several Confederation worlds and killing billions of people. Surrender is not an option. One of the Space Corps’ monitoring stations finds hints of a Trivar world, countless galaxies away, and a mission is formed to search for a way to counter the enemy space fleet’s seemingly impregnable defences.
A huge fleet of spacecraft emerges close to one of the Confederation’s worlds. The aliens on board - known as Trivar - claim to be peaceful. After countless wars, the Space Corps’ high command isn’t ready to believe, and with good reason. The Trivar have many demands. It doesn’t take long for two of the Corps’ most decorated officers to become embroiled in a war which appears impossible to win. While Nation hunts for a weakness, two huge space fleets clash. Nothing is easy in this universe, and the key to victory lies with humanity’s once-greatest enemy.
Lieutenant Becky Keller’s brain is fitted with a processing core which can outthink and outfly the most advanced battle computers in the Space Corps. Joe Nation is packed with so many augmentations, he can’t remember which parts of his body are real anymore. All he knows is covert ops, and there’s no one better than Nation. The pair of them are given a mission - infiltrate the Isob-2 processing facility of a semi-hostile alien species known as Estral and find out if they’re breaking the terms of a peace treaty.
The mysterious Creator has been the instigator of chaos for thousands of years. Now, its spaceships are converging on human territory. The Confederation is worn down by endless conflict, its warfleet depleted and its armies stretched. Two of the Space Corps’ top officers - Joe Nation and Becky Keller - are determined to fight for as long as it takes. The coming conflict will offer them a fleeting glimpse into the designs of an entity so powerful it might as well be a god. For Nation and Keller, the things they learn ensure nothing will ever be the same again.
Bold action from Captain Becky Keller and Lieutenant Joe Nation in the Bael-6 solar system has sent a hammerblow response to the murderous Scions. The enemy are down but not defeated. The detonation of the galaxy bomb has brought something new into the fight. The Scions are not a natural living species, and now their mysterious creator has taken an interest in the human Confederation.
The human Confederation is on the verge of total defeat. The Trivar and the life draining Antaron have taken turns and now, their cruel overlords, the Scions, have joined the fight. As if the odds weren’t bad enough already. The Scions are savage, brutal and arrogant. They have brought with them a weapon beyond comprehension. If the Scions are not stopped, everyone will die. Captain Becky Keller is flying the refitted ES Devastator. It’s the only spaceship with the firepower to match the Scions in a one-on-one.
