A quick-witted, genre-bending, and wildly imaginative thriller about the secret organization keeping England--and the world--safe from supernatural threats (one staff meeting at a time). "The body you are wearing used to be mine." So begins the letter Myfanwy Thomas is holding when she awakes in a London park surrounded by bodies all wearing latex gloves. With no recollection of who she is, Myfanwy must follow the instructions her former self left behind to discover her identity and track down the agents who want to destroy her. She soon learns that she is a Rook, a high-ranking member of a secret organization called the Chequy that battles the many supernatural forces at work in Britain. She also discovers that she possesses a rare, potentially deadly supernatural ability of her own. In her quest to uncover which member of the Chequy betrayed her and why, Myfanwy encounters a person with four bodies, an aristocratic woman who can enter her dreams, a secret training facility where children are transformed into deadly fighters, and a conspiracy more vast than she ever could have imagined. Filled with characters both fascinating and fantastical, THE ROOK is a richly inventive, suspenseful, and often wry thriller that marks an ambitious debut from a promising young writer.

Vous êtes fan de X-Men, de Watchmen et de Fringe ? Vous allez adorer The Rook. Victime d'une agression, Myfanwy Thomas reprend conscience dans un parc de Londres. Autour d'elle, des hommes en costume portant des gants de latex. Tous sont morts. Situation peu réjouissante, certes, mais il y a pire : Myfanwy ne se souvient plus de rien. Le plus surprenant, c'est qu'elle semble avoir prévu cette amnésie. Elle a sur elle une lettre écrite de sa main lui expliquant qui elle est et ce qu'elle doit faire pour découvrir qui veut l'éliminer. C'est ainsi que Myfawny rejoint le siège de l'Échiquier, une organisation secrète chargée de combattre les forces surnaturelles qui menacent la Couronne. Au sein de cette version paranormale du MI5 anglais où elle occupe un poste élevé, entourée de surdoués aux pouvoirs plus que spéciaux, la jeune femme va rapidement se retrouver seule, cherchant son chemin dans un univers d'ombres et de menaces. À présent, il va lui falloir lever le voile sur une conspiration aux proportions inimaginables. À mi-chemin entre l'univers de J. J. Abrams et celui de Chris Carter, The Rook est un roman à l'inventivité délirante et aux rebondissements incessants, qui ne vous laissera pas reprendre votre souffle avant la dernière page.

In this spirited sequel to the acclaimed The Rook, Myfanwy Thomas returns to clinch an alliance between deadly rivals and avert epic -- and slimy -- supernatural war. When secret organizations are forced to merge after years of enmity and bloodshed, only one person has the fearsome powers---and the bureaucratic finesse---to get the job done. Facing her greatest challenge yet, Rook Myfanwy Thomas must broker a deal between two bitter adversaries: The Checquy---the centuries-old covert British organization that protects society from supernatural threats, and... The Grafters---a centuries-old supernatural threat. But as bizarre attacks sweep London, threatening to sabotage negotiations, old hatreds flare. Surrounded by spies, only the Rook and two women who absolutely hate each other, can seek out the culprits before they trigger a devastating otherworldly war. Stiletto is a novel of preternatural diplomacy, paranoia, and snide remarks, from an author who "adroitly straddles the thin line between fantasy, thriller, and spoof " (Booklist).

“A post-psychedelic coming-of-age fable that’s part Thomas Pynchon, part Tolkien, part Richard Brautigan. . . .” (Michele Slung, The New York Times Book Review) By the author of Not Fade Away and Fup, Stone Junction is a bravura act of storytelling, both a high adventure that spans the decades from Haight-Ashbury to 1980s New York, and a parable about the powers within us all. Annalee Pearce is a pregnant sixteen-year-old who has been placed in a corrective center run by nuns for refusing to cooperate with authorities. Once in there, she soon rebels, breaks a sister’s jaw with a “roundhouse right” and, when her son Daniel is born, she steals away into the rain. “Here is American storytelling as tall as it is broadly imagined and deeply felt, exuberant with outlaw humor and honest magic. Reading Stone Junction is like being at a nonstop party in celebration of everything that matters.” —Thomas Pynchon

The ancient order of the Knights Templar possessed untold wealth and absolute power over kings and popes . . . until the Inquisition, when they were wiped from the face of the earth, their hidden riches lost. But now two forces vying for the treasure have learned that it is not at all what they thought it was–and its true nature could change the modern world. Cotton Malone, one-time top operative for the U.S. Justice Department, is enjoying his quiet new life as an antiquarian book dealer in Copenhagen when an unexpected call to action reawakens his hair-trigger instincts–and plunges him back into the cloak-and-dagger world he thought he’d left behind. It begins with a violent robbery attempt on Cotton’s former supervisor, Stephanie Nelle, who’ s far from home on a mission that has nothing to do with national security. Armed with vital clues to a series of centuries-old puzzles scattered across Europe, she means to crack a mystery that has tantalized scholars and fortune-hunters through the ages by finding the legendary cache of wealth and forbidden knowledge thought to have been lost forever when the order of the Knights Templar was exterminated in the fourteenth century. But she’s not alone. Competing for the historic prize– and desperate for the crucial information Stephanie possesses–is Raymond de Roquefort, a shadowy zealot with an army of assassins at his command. Welcome or not, Cotton seeks to even the odds in the perilous race. But the more he learns about the ancient conspiracy surrounding the Knights Templar, the more he realizes that even more than lives are at stake. At the end of a lethal game of conquest, rife with intrigue, treachery, and craven lust for power, lies a shattering discovery that could rock the civilized world–and, in the wrong hands, bring it to its knees. BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Steve Berry’s The King's Deception and a Cotton Malone dossier.
