Обложка книги Rebel Train: A Civil War Novel Rebel Train: A Civil War Novel

 Автор: Healey David


In a daring plan, the Confederate Secret Service sends a group of cavalrymen to kidnap, or kill, President Abraham Lincoln by seizing the train secretly carrying him to Gettysburg on the eve of his famous Address.

Colonel Arthur Percy leads the rebel raiders into enemy territory. His crew includes Tom Flynn, an assassin sent to make sure Percy follows orders-or dies trying.

Lincoln is not the only valuable cargo on the train. A fortune in Union payroll is the target of a Baltimore belle and a tough gambler.

The situation is further complicated when the original crew of the seized train finds another locomotive and gives chase.


Based on a true story, Rebel Train runs a mile a minute in a steam-driven race through the farmlands and mountains of Maryland and Virginia. The outcome will decide not only the fate of Lincoln and the Raiders, but of the Union and the Confederacy.

 Серия: Matthew Shardlake


It is spring, 1543 and King Henry VIII is wooing Lady Catherine Parr, whom he wants for his sixth wife — but this time the object of his affections is resisting. Archbishop Cranmer and the embattled Protestant faction at court are watching keenly, for Lady Catherine is known to have reformist sympathies.

Matthew Shardlake, meanwhile, is working on the case of a teenage boy, a religious maniac who has been placed by the King's council in the Bedlam hospital for the insane. Should he be released as his parents want, when his terrifying actions could lead to him being burned as a heretic?

Then, when an old friend is horrifically murdered, Shardlake promises his widow — for whom he has long had complicated feelings — to bring the killer to justice. His search leads him to connections not only with the boy in Bedlam, but with Archbishop Cranmer and Catherine Parr, and with the dark prophecies of the Book of Revelation.

As London's Bishop Bonner prepares a purge of Protestants, Shardlake, together with his assistant Jack Barak and his friend Guy Malton, follow the trail of a series of horrific murders that shake them to the core. Murders which are already bringing about frenzied talk of witchcraft and a demonic possession, for what else would the Tudor mind make of a serial killer?

 Серия: , John Shakespeare


1592. England and Spain are at war, yet there is peril at home, too. The death of her trusted spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham has left Queen Elizabeth vulnerable. Conspiracies multiply. The quiet life of John Shakespeare is shattered by a summons from Robert Cecil, the cold but deadly young statesman who dominated the last years of the Queen's long reign, insisting Shakespeare re-enter government service. His mission: to find vital papers, now in the possession of the Earl of Essex. Essex is the brightest star in the firmament, a man of ambition. He woos the Queen, thirty-three years his senior, as if she were a girl his age. She is flattered by him – despite her loathing for his mother, the beautiful, dangerous Lettice Knollys who presides over her own glittering court – a dazzling array of the mad, bad, dangerous and disaffected. When John Shakespeare infiltrates this dissolute world he discovers not only that the Queen herself is in danger – but that he and his family is also a target. With only his loyal footsoldier Boltfoot Cooper at his side, Shakespeare must face implacable forces who believe themselves above the law: men and women who kill without compunction. And in a world of shifting allegiances, just how far he can trust Robert Cecil, his devious new master?

Prawdziwym bohaterem tej epickiej sagi dwóch rodów, prowadzącej czytelnika przez tysiąc lat ich dziejów, jest Rzym miasto i jego mieszkańcy. Wplatając historię, legendę i najnowsze odkrycia archeologiczne w dynamiczną narrację, Steven Saylor tchnął nowe życie w dramat pierwszego tysiąclecia Wiecznego Miasta od chwili jego założenia poprzez meandry zadziwiającej drogi do roli stolicy najpotężniejszego w dziejach imperium. Rzym przypomina tragedię bohatera i zdrajcy Koriolana, zdobycie miasta przez Galów, najazd Hannibala, zacięte zmagania polityczne między patrycjuszami i plebejuszami, a wreszcie śmierć republiki z chwilą triumfu i wkrótce potem zabójstwa Juliusza Cezara. świadkami, uczestnikami, a czasem głównymi aktorami dramatu są potomkowie starych rodów Potycjuszów i Pinariuszów. Rolę łącznika między pokoleniami pełni tajemniczy talizman, odwieczny jak samo miasto. Steven Saylor, historyk, jest autorem uznanego przez krytyków i uwielbianego przez czytelników cyklu powieści Roma sub rosa, wydanego w osiemnastu językach, także w wersji polskiej przez REBIS, pojawiał się też w roli eksperta od polityki i realiów codzienności starożytnego Rzymu w telewizyjnych filmach dokumentalnych nadawanych w wielu krajach na kanale History Channel. Rzym historyczna panorama, ludzki dramat i porywająca opowieść jest jego największym literackim osiągnięciem.
