Flying the Storm by C. S. Arnot

“It’s only bravery if there’s a chance you’ll lose.”

The Gilgamesh: a colossal airborne warship and relic of the Thirty-Year War. Once the glorious flagship of the North Atlantic Union, it has become a hive of renegades and pirates, unchallenged in the skies over Eurasia. Like an angry god, it dominates wherever and whomever it chooses.

Now it has chosen the Crimea, the most lucrative trade hub on the Black Sea.

In Sevastopol, two Gilgamesh marines are dead, and in seconds the merchant airman Aiden has become a wanted man. It didn’t matter that it was his pilot, Fredrick, who got them into the fight in the first place – Aiden had finished it. Now they must run, taking their aircraft deep into the Caucasus Mountains to evade capture and execution.

Through dogfights, shootouts and cock-ups the pair must make their escape, hounded by bounty hunters and slavers, driven to discover a secret that might – just might – change the balance of power forever…

The Assassin The Grey Man And The Surgeon by D C Stansfield and Adam Sklar

OVERVIEW2nd editionShortlisted for 2015 January’s IPR Agent’s Pick competition with the Andrew Lownie Literary Agency, Book1 in The Assassin The Surgeon and The Grey man seriesIt was all going so well for Peter Lee’s drug empire. He had a hold on the producers in Afghanistan and Pakistan. His receiver network was increasing and the distribution was now being handled by four of the biggest gangs in London. With business so good, he was starting to expand. He was becoming very, very rich.The only small annoyance had come from a little old lady who owned of all things a corner shop. She had refused to accept any of his little parcels and wanted to go to the police, so she’d been given two bullets, the ‘double tap’, both to shut her up and to send a message to everyone else in the network.Unknown to Lee she was married to a specialist, a man who, in a former life killed men for a living. He had two friends, one a gatherer of information, the master in his field, one a breaker of men, who was so vicious that it was rumoured that each time he hit a man he cut him. Each of these three men had spent thirty years and more playing the ‘great game’. Inside the security company called ‘The Firm’ they were legends known only as The Assassin, The Grey Man and The Surgeon. Now living at the edge of the secret world and about to disappear into history, this atrocity had brought them back centre stage but the question is, do they still have what it takes to go up against today’s hard men?

Rafferty’s Rules: A Rafferty P.I. Mystery (Rafferty : Hardboiled P.I. Book 1) by W. Glenn Duncan

Rafferty’s Rule 23: You show me a man who always fights fair and I’ll show you a man who loses too often.Fifteen years ago, Rafferty saved Vivian Mollison from a crazed junkie who tried to blow her head off. A lot has changed since then. Rafferty’s no longer a cop, and Vivian’s now twenty-five, studying sociology at SMU, with a father who made a fortune in computers.So when Rafferty gets summoned to the Mollison estate and told to chase down the five outlaw bikers who kidnapped Vivian and put her into a drug-induced twilight zone, it’s mixed emotions.The payday will be big, but he’ll have to earn every penny of it. The bikers aren’t likely to come quietly and who knows how many people could get hurt in the crossfire.But behind all that fun and excitement, there’s still a girl who needs his help.Rafferty saved Vivian once. Can he do it again?If you’re a fan of Spenser, Mike Hammer or Matt Scudder, then this hardboiled pulp thriller, from Shamus Award Winner W. Glenn Duncan, will keep you reading late into the dark night.RAFFERTY’S RULES is a hardboiled P.I. mystery in the tradition of the best pulp thrillers.Rafferty’s a Dallas P.I. and an ex-cop who spent enough time on the streets to understand how things work. And when they don’t, Rafferty’s the guy you’ll want on your side. He may quote Latin occasionally, smoke too much and be a cynical sonofabitch, but when it all hits the fan and you need someone you can trust, you’ll be glad you called Rafferty.Originally published by Ballantine, this 30th Anniversary release of RAFFERTY’S RULES marks the first time that W. Glenn Duncan’s work has been available in digital format. We doubt that Rafferty would quietly accept the ongoing march of technology that provides this opportunity, but even a grizzled P.I. has to grow up sometime.This hardboiled PI series will continue with the first new Rafferty story in nearly three decades. FALSE GODS, written by W. Glenn Duncan Jr. (son of the original author) sees Rafferty looking for a missing girl, up to his ass in religious fundamentalists and needing all the help he can get from his old pals Cowboy and Mimi—and a few new ones—to make sure he gets out alive.Join the Rafferty Readers’ Group at RaffertyPI.com to get the latest news on the upcoming release of FALSE GODS.Praise for W. Glenn Duncan:“Sometimes it seemed W. Glenn Duncan’s Texas P.I. Rafferty had a rule for everything, but the fact remains that most of them were a hoot. And, of course, a further irony is that “Rafferty’s Rules” is, in fact, an Australian football term for “no rules at all.” – Thrilling Detective Website“I have all of the Rafferty titles in my collection. I’ve gotten rid of a lot of stuff over the years, but the Rafferty books are a mainstay. I think they’re terrific!” – Paul Bishop“Duncan truly captured the pure essence of the definitive smart-ass private eye in his character Rafferty. Take part Sam Spade with a little Mike Hammer, mix in some Spenser and you have an awesome character.” – Cliff Fausset“At first sniff, it may smell like Spenser with a cowboy hat, but take a good whiff: W. Glenn Duncan’s Dallas, Texas private eye RAFFERTY was actually a blast of fresh air in what was rapidly becoming a glut of sensitive, soul-searching, overly politically-correct cookie cutter P.I.s in the late eighties. Of course, it helps that Dallas ain’t Boston.” – Kevin Burton Smith
