Trojan Odyssey (Dirk Pitt Adventures)

By Cussler, Clive

Berkley Books, 2004. Long hailed as the grand master of adventure fiction, Clive Cussler has continued to astound with the intricate plotting and astonishing set pieces of his novels. Now, with a surprising twist, he gives us his most audacious work yet. In the final pages of Valhalla Rising, Dirk Pitt discovered, to his shock, that he had two grown children he had never known-twenty-three-year-old fraternal twins born to a woman he thought had died in an underwater earthquake. Both have inherited his love of the sea: the girl, Summer, is a marine biologist; the boy, himself named Dirk, is a marine engineer. And now they are about to help their father in the adventure of a lifetime. There is a brown tide infesting the ocean off the shore of Nicaragua. The twins are working in a NUMA(r) underwater enclosure, trying to determine its origin, when two startling things happen: Summer discovers an artifact, something strange and beautiful and ancient; and the worst storm in years boils up out of the sky, heading straight not only for them but also for a luxurious floating resort hotel square in its path. The peril for everybody concerned is incalculable, and, desperately, Pitt, Al Giordino, and the rest of the NUMA(r) crew rush to the rescue, but what they find in the storm's wake makes the furies of nature pale in comparison. For there is an all-too-human evil at work in that part of the world, and the brown tide is only a by-product of its plan. Soon, its work will be complete-and the world will be a very different place. Though if Summer's discovery is to be believed, the world is already a very different place... Filled with breathtaking action and suspense, Trojan Odyssey is Cussler at the height of his storytelling powers.. Paperback. Very Good/No Jacket. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

Island of the Day Before

By Eco, Umberto

Harcourt, Inc., 2006. After a violent storm in the South Pacific in the year 1643, Roberto della Griva finds himself shipwrecked-on a ship. Swept from the Amaryllis, he has managed to pull himself aboard the Daphne, anchored in the bay of a beautiful island. The ship is fully provisioned, he discovers, but the crew is missing. As Roberto explores the different cabinets in the hold, he remembers chapters from his youth: Ferrante, his imaginary evil brother; the siege of Casale, that meaningless chess move in the Thirty Years' War in which he lost his father and his illusions; and the lessons given him on Reasons of State, fencing, the writing of love letters, and blasphemy. In this fascinating, lyrical tale, Umberto Eco tells of a young dreamer searching for love and meaning; and of a most amazing old Jesuit who, with his clocks and maps, has plumbed the secrets of longitudes, the four moons of Jupiter, and the Flood.. Paperback. As New/None. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

My novel, Pure Fusion, portrays the next generation of terrorists, a new generation more frightening than any we have known. Completed nine months before the devastating attacks on New York, Pure Fusion was intended to sound an alarm against complacency, a reminder that we must be vigilant for state-sponsored terrorism will not go away.

Additional pictures of condition are always available. BOOK DESCRIPTION: In the employ of Britain's Secret Office, Jerrold is sent to America on a simple mission. With serious rumors of a threatening conspiracy brewing, the government is in desperate need of help and Jerrold is their man. His task is simple: infiltrate the conspirators and stop them at all costs. Leaving the shores of England, his journey will take him across pirate-infested seas, through the American wilderness, and down the mighty Mississippi River. Enemies are ranged against him---agents of Spain and America are trying to kill him, and the plotters are growing suspicious of his intentions. Then there is the lovely Miss Lyell, who seems to have her own plans for Lieutenant Jerrold. His instructions ring in his ears: find out what the conspirators intend and stop it. But as each bumbling step takes Jerrold further into danger, he slowly realizes that his very presence within the conspiracy could be the spark that ignites a disastrous war between England and America. The stakes are high---the entire future of Britain's war against Napoleon rests in his not-so-capable hands. One wrong move and the consequences would be catastrophic, even by Jerrold's own lamentable standards. British naval officer Martin Jerrold missed the Battle of Trafalgar (drunk in his ship's hold in The Blighted Cliffs) and let a prisoner escape during his command of a prison ship (in Chains of Albion). For his third outing, Jerrold, who narrates with speed and humor, is pressed into service by British spies. From a courier, the spies have stolen a letter they suspect concerns conspiracy-one that could draw Britain and the newly birthed U.S. into war. Jerrold agrees to deliver the letter, infiltrate the conspiracy and find a way to frustrate the scheme. Joined by an enigmatic and beautiful young woman he meets on the transatlantic crossing, Jerrold plunges "headlong into the American wilderness" in September of 1806. The purloined letter leads Jerrold to an island in the Ohio River and former American vice president Aaron Burr, who hopes to revive his fortunes by invading Mexico and forging "a new empire on America's border" with the help of English benefactors. As Burr's expedition floats down the Mississippi toward New Orleans, Jerrold races to stop Burr's delusional scheme and prevent a devastating conflict between England and the U.S.. First Edition. Hard Cover. New/As New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

By O'Brian, Patrick

Harper Collins, 2002. Paperback book is in like new condition. Soft cover shows very minor signs of shelf wear on edges. Inside of book pages are crisp and clean; no stains. Approx: 6 1/2 by 4 1/2. Pictorial cover on front. Publisher: Harper Collins. 403 pages long. 2002 edition. Additional pictures of condition are always available. BOOK DESCRIPTION FROM BACK COVER: Master and Commander is the first of Patrick O'Brian's now famous Aubrey-Maturin novels, regarded by many as the finest historical novels ever written. It establishes the friendship between Captain jack Aubrey RN and Stephen Maturin, who becomes his ship's surgeon and a scret agent. It contains all the action and excitement which could possibly be hoped for in a historical novel, but it also displays the qualities that have made Patrick O'Brian a literary legend: his description of the detail of life aboard a Nelsonic man of war, of weapons, food, conversation and ambiance, of the landscape and of the sea. O'Brian's portrayal of each of these is faultless and the sense of period throughout is acute. His power of charactisaton, now brought to life in a major picture directed by Peter Weir, and starring Russell Crowe and Paul Bettany, above all, is masterly.. Paperback. New/None. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

BOOK DESCRIPTION: In 1883, Treasure Island established Robert Louis Steven's literary reputation and brought him instant fame. Its characters gained a permanent place in popular culture, especially the memorable one-legged racal Long John Silver and his parrot, Captain Flint, squawking, "Piece of Eight" Now Francis Bryan gives due homage to the immortal original with this thrilling sequel. It is then years since the Hispaniola sailed with its hoard of gold from Treasure Island. Now twenty-four, Jim Hawking is doing well asa boastful local hero. Life is comfortable, if not too exciting--until a beautiful young woman in distress appears. Smitten, Jim is soon led into some very rough waters. With no alternative, he returns to "that accursed island," where his comrades marooned three mutinous pirates a decade earlier, and learns the fate of Joseph Tait--the most murderous buccaneer of them all... Treasure Island, under the title The Sea Cook, was first published as a magazine scrial throughout the winter of 1881-82. When it appeared in book form in 1883, it established Stevenson's reputation. He had written it during a rainy holiday in Scotland, partly for the amusement of his American stepson, Lloyd Osbourne. His characters became instantly famous and passed forever into popular culture, especially Long John Silver with his wooden crutch, his greeting. "Jim, lad," and his parrot, Cap'n Flint, who cackled "pieces of eight!" Never out of print, Treasure Island sells thousands of copies worldwide every year. Among Stevenson's contemporaries it received wide acclaim for its memorable characterization, clear language, realistic atmosphere and rattling good narrative. The Curse of Treasure Island is the spellbinding sequel to the greatest adventure story ever written. At the End of Treasure Island, Robert Louis Stevenson's gripping adventure story, the Hispaniola sailed away with "great heaps of coin ... bars of gold ... doubloons and double guineas." But some treasure had to be left behind -- as were three surviving pirates, deliberately marooned. Their leader, Long John Silver, had changed sides in time to save his skin, and on the voyage home to Bristol slipped ashore, helping himself to some of the hoard as he vanished. Jim Hawkins, the cabin-boy who narrated the story, returned to live in the English countryside near his friends Dr. Livesey and Squire Trelawney, and grew up to become landlord of the family inn. He swore that "oxen and wain-ropes would not bring me back again to that accursed island." But one day, ten years after his return, a beautiful stranger and her young son come looking for Jim Hawkins, and he is led back to the South Seas, to even greater danger than before, to violence and a mystery ...This thrilling sequel to one of the greatest adventure stories ever told is written in the same spirit and with due homage to the wonderful original.. Paperback. Fine/None. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
