The lake lies in the middle of a jungle hardly changed since the age of the dinosaurs, while the jungle stands on the slope of an active volcano which has destroyed the only civilisation nearby.

              By Tonkin, Peter

              Mother Nature declares war on the West Coast in this"terrifying, suspenseful, and vividly told" action thriller: "A must for high-seas-adventure fans" (Booklist). Richard and Robin Mariner are in Long Beach, California, overseeing the arrival of their container ship, Sulu Queen. ...From there, the adventuresome couple plan to join their friend Nic aboard his fifty-million-dollar motor yacht as he races his daughter in an Olympic-standard Katapult multihull down the coast to Mexico. But when a catastrophic once-in-a-thousand-years megastorm known as an ARkStorm overwhelms them, Richard and Robin are forced to turn the Sulu Queen into a real Noah's ark. Richard must guide her into the deadliest weather the Pacific has ever seen as he fights to save those closest to him-as well as countless other lives. "Readers who batten down the hatches and keep the Dramamine handy should enjoy the rough but rewarding ride." -Publishers Weekly on Thunder Bay "Tense, action-packed and authentic-feeling, especially in its welcome attention to maritime detail." -Kirkus Reviews on Deadly Impact

              By Tonkin, Peter

              A couple's quest to rescue a kidnapped girl leads them into the perilous heart of the Sinai desert: "A sure bet for adventure fans" (Booklist). Nautical entrepreneurs Richard and Robin Mariner are relaxing off the coast of Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt when their boat flounders on Sha...ab Ruhr Siyoul-known as the Blind Reef-and they suddenly find themselves saving the lives of several refugees. One of the survivors, Nahom, tells them that his twin sister Tsibekti has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom by smugglers. Shocked by Nahom's story, Richard and Robin travel into the heart of the Sinai in a quest to find the lost girl. Now they must evade Egyptian police, Bedouin smugglers and militant Islamists in order to rescue Tsibekti and get out of the desert alive... Blind Reef is a ripped-from-the-headlines installment in a seafaring thriller series that "resembles a mixture of Ian Fleming and Hammond Innes" (Publishers Weekly).

              Peter Tonkin delivers again. The personalities and plots of the Elizabethan age sparkle in this fast-paced thriller. Steven Veerapen, author of The Abbey Close Saturday, 13 January 1599. Poet and politician Edmund Spenser is found dead in his lodgings on King Street, London. Summ...oned to the corpse's bedside, Tom Musgrave - Spenser's friend and fencing tutor - suspects murder. Musgrave begins an investigation, only to find himself fighting to untangle a web of political backstabbing, black magic, poisoning and treason. There are initially more questions than answers, but the trail leads Musgrave to study the poet's early work, including the notorious satire Mother Hubberd's Tale - which even now threatens to destroy some of the most powerful men in England. As the Earl of Essex arranges the most famously extravagant funeral of the age, only three days after the poet's death, Musgrave races to unmask the man who has been so outraged by Spenser's verse that he has had the poet murdered. And he must do so, before his own name is added to the death list. Recommended for fans of Rory Clements, CJ Samson and SJ Parris. Praise for Peter Tonkin: The Ides is a testosterone-fuelled battle roar in a world of double-dealing and betrayal, where wits must be sharp and recovery time between violent encounters is brief. Peter Tonkin has infused a familiar narrative with excitement, energy and a delicious twist right at the very end. - Mystery People Riveting tale full of fast action - Publishers Weekly Edge-of-the-seat terror - Daily Post Good technical detail, plus an exciting climax, makes this entertaining reading - Publishing News A welcome aura of old-fashioned expertise - Publishers Weekly A good thriller, recommended - Library Journal Tonkin is a superb storyteller who creates big, brash, swashbuckling adventures with taut suspense, fast-paced action and tough, resourceful characters. -Booklist Equals the best of James Clavell - Daily Telegraph A master of sea-going adventure

              Superb ... For fans of steven saylor and conn iggulden. Richard Foreman ROME. 42 BC. Rome and its empire are in turmoil. Severed heads fill the Forum. Cicero's remains among them, more than two months after his death. Power lies with Antony and Caesar's adopted son and heir Octav...ianus. Their reign of terror continues but too many of their proscribed enemies are escaping their clutches. And Brutus and Cassius still oppose them. Their fleets are blockading the Triumvirate's ports as they build their armies in the East. Antony turns to his most trusted secret agent, Artemidorus. He is tasked with delivering a message to the only person with a navy powerful enough to help - Cleopatra. But the road to Alexandria is a dangerous one. Artemidorus and his companions must journey through treacherous countryside and past cities ravaged by Brutus' rapacious legions and tax collectors. Before the Queen can help Antony, Cleopatra must rely on Artemidorus to find a way to stop Cassius from invading Egypt - and to bring grain to her starving people before they rise in revolt against her. Artemidorus' mission becomes ever more dangerous and desperate as friends turn into enemies and lovers into traitors.Recommended for fans of Steven Saylor, Robert Harris and Ben Kane. Peter Tonkin was born in Ulster, Northern Ireland and was raised in the UK, Holland, Germany, and the Persian Gulf. The son of an RAF officer, Tonkin spent much of his youth travelling the world from one posting to another.
