After a turbulent couple of years, private investigator Adam Park may have finally discovered a place to settle down and pursue his desire to help those less fortunate than himself: New Zealand, the Land of the Long White Cloud. A big part of his choice to quit traveling is his new partner: long-time friend Jess, who helps tame the dark impulses that have driven him in the past. But when a client dies just days after engaging the pair, both are curious. When it starts to look a lot like suicide, the client’s estranged widow begs them to delve deeper into the man’s past. And it is a past filled with desperate actions, fake identities, and paranoia. And that paranoia brought the dead man into conflict with a major corporation. When Adam and Jess latch onto the corporation’s activities in the small mountain town of Shelly Hill, they start to ask the same questions their client did: why is a subsidiary buying up land so quickly? Why are corporate executives working closely with a brutal drugs gang? And how far will they go to protect their interests? Under the Long White Cloud takes a man trying to change and puts his resolve to the test, pushing him to the very limits of his willpower, both emotionally and physically. For a fast paced international thriller in the beautiful setting of New Zealand, pick up the sixth Adam Park novel today. ____________________________________________________________ The full Adam Park private investigator series: 1.

An acclaimed scientist is chosen to travel through alternate futures to find safe haven - and instead, finds a totalitarian world of dictators and concentration camps . . . Christian Queghan is a Myth Technologist, a highly respected scientist on Earth IVN. Like so many other worlds colonised generations ago, the planet was created to be as much like Old Earth as possible - even though Old Earth itself is now pretty much a myth, the stuff of legend. But Earth IVN has its problems too. Now a machine has been developed to project a researcher into one of the infinite number of possible futures of Earth IVN, and Christian Queghan is the ideal subject. He can't resist the idea of going where no man has gone before, but there are an infinite number of possible futures, and no guarantee of a safe return. On a parallel world, a strange, translucent figure is found floating in the blood-red ocean on a craft of scorched metal. Could the alien's claim to come from the future be true? Or is this totalitarian world of dictators and concentration camps a dream projection from another dimension? Seeking the Mythical Future is Book One of the Q Series, an epic science fiction adventure through parallel worlds.

In this beautifully written account, John Thomas details an intimate portrait of the intellectual friendship between two commanding figures of western letters and the early environmental movement--Wallace Stegner and Bernard DeVoto.. The authors of enormously popular works--Stegner most well known for his novels The Big Rock Candy Mountain and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Angle of Repose and DeVoto for his classic history of western exploration, The Course of Empire--they also played important roles in the efforts to stop government and private interests from carving up the vanishing West. Part of the fractious group of public intellectuals at Harvard that included Edmund Wilson, Mary McCarthy, and Arthur Schlesinger, Sr., they saw no contradiction between their literary and political selves and entered the public debate with conviction and passion. Drawing on their writings, personal correspondence, and dozens of articles from the pages of Harper's, where DeVoto was a columnist for years, this illuminating account demonstrates how their concerns for the western environment continue to resonate today.

"Our world has fallen still. One half lies drenched in eternal daylight, the other cloaked in endless night. All is light or darkness. All is the sun or the moon. All but me..." The Moth Saga, a bestselling fantasy series, tells the story of Moth, a world torn in two--its one half always in sunlight, the other cloaked in endless night. This bundle includes books four, five, and six in the series: Daughter of Moth, Shadows of Moth, and Legacy of Moth. Many eras ago, the world of Moth fell still, leaving one side in perpetual daylight, the other in darkness. Madori might be unique in Moth: her father is a son of sunlight, her mother a daughter of darkness. As war rages between Moth's two halves, Madori must find a way to heal this broken world . . . and to heal her own torn soul.
