He thought he'd escaped. But peace is hard to find - and harder still to keep . . . The third in Peter Liney's Detainee series.

Over a year has passed since Clancy escaped the hell that was the City. Pursued by the ruthless leader of Infinity - the corporation behind the mass murders of thousands of 'lower class' citizens - he has been on the run ever since, constantly looking over his shoulder.

Despite this, he has forged a new life working the land on an abandoned smallholding on the other side of the mountains. Hidden there, he is as close to happy as he can be.

Until strange things start to happen in the valley: too many unlucky coincidences convince him that another power is rising, and there are questions to be answered: what is the shadow maker?

And who - or what - has begun to howl in the night?

Winds of the Night

Joan Sales
Authors:
Joan Sales

"Perhaps the worst thing about war is the peace that follows . . ."Winds of the Night is the follow-up, published almost thirty years later, to Joan Sales' acclaimed masterwork of the Spanish Civil War, Uncertain Glory.It describes the shell-shocked wasteland that was post-war Catalonia through the eyes of Cruells, a Republican chaplain who survives the war, and completes his theological studies only to lose his faith in a world where it seems all hope has been extinguished.As he struggles to function as a rural priest, his steps are dogged by a ghostly figures from his past, such as Lamoneda, a fascist agent provocateur who now hobnobs with Himmler and misses few opportunities to turn the febrile post-war atmosphere to his financial advantage. Against his wishes, Creulls is drawn into obsessive dialogues about the war in which only lunacy prevails, for Lamoneda seems to hold the key to the whereabouts of an old friend - the mercurial Juli Soleràs, whose charisma, for all his betrayals, still holds Cruells in thrall.An essential coda to the modern classic that is Uncertain Glory, Winds of the Night is a Beckettian vision of the traumas of combatants and country hidden beneath the rhetoric of the victors.Translated from the Catalan by Peter Bush

The Wave Trilogy

Aidan Harte
Authors:
Aidan Harte

Set in a darkly original alternative Renaissance Italy, The Wave Trilogy is a gripping adventure, a tragic love story and a very modern tale of redemption. This omnibus edition includes Irenicon, The Warring States and Spira Mirabilis.Both weapon and mystery, The Wave created the artificial river Irenicon overnight, ripping the city of Rasenna in two - but not even the Concordian engineers who wielded it know how the river became conscious, and hostile.Now Captain Giovanni has been ordered to bridge the Irenicon, not to reunite the sundered city, but to aid Concord's mighty armies. The engineers have their sights set firmly on world domination and Rasenna is in their way.Sofia Scaglieri will soon be seventeen, when she will become Contessa of Rasenna, but her inheritance is tainted: she can see no way of stopping the ancient culture of vendetta which divides her city. Times are changing. And only the young Contessa and the enemy engineer Giovanni understand they have to change too, if they are to survive the coming devastation - for Concord is about to unleash the Wave again . . .'Harte is a brilliant new voice in historical fantasy, and this is quite simply the best piece of fantasy that I have read so far this year' Inter Zone
