A Gideon Crew Collection

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2532914&fc=US&cjsku=2532914...
Now, available for the first time together in a single volume: a digital-only, value-priced bundle edition of the first three books in the Gideon Crew series: Gideon's Sword, Gideon's Corpse, and The Lost Island, by #1 New York Times bestselling authors Preston & Child. GIDEON'S SWORD: At twelve, Gideon Crew witnessed his father, a world-class mathematician, accused of treason and gunned down. At twenty-four, summoned to his dying mother's bedside, Gideon learned the truth: His father was framed and deliberately slaughtered. With her last breath, she begged her son to avenge him. Now, with a new purpose in his life, Gideon crafts a one-time mission of vengeance, aimed at the perpetrator of his father's destruction. His plan is meticulous, spectacular, and successful. But from the shadows, someone is watching. A very powerful someone, who is impressed by Gideon's special skills. Someone who has need of just such a renegade. For Gideon, this operation may be only the beginning... GIDEON'S CORPSE: A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff. A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before. Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: in ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack. Ten days. And Gideon Crew, tracking the mysterious terrorist cell from the suburbs of New York to the mountains of New Mexico, learns the end may be something worse--far worse--than mere Armageddon. THE LOST ISLAND: Brilliant scientist and master thief Gideon Crew is living on borrowed time when he is tasked by his mysterious employer, Eli Glinn, to steal a page from the priceless Book of Kells, now on display in New York City and protected by unbreakable security. Gideon gets the parchment-only to learn that hidden beneath the illuminated image is a treasure map dating back to the ancient Greeks. As they ponder the strange map, they realize that the treasure it leads to is no ordinary fortune. It is something far more precious: an amazing discovery that could perhaps even save Gideon's life. Together with his new partner, Amy, Gideon follows a trail of cryptic clues to an unknown island in a remote corner of the Caribbean Sea. There, off the hostile and desolate Mosquito Coast, the pair discover the extraordinary treasure they are hunting conceals an even greater shock-a revelation so profound that it may benefit the entire human race . . . if Gideon and Amy can survive.

Gideon Smith and the Mechanical Girl

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=1187941&fc=US&cjsku=1187941...
Nineteenth century London is the center of a vast British Empire. Airships ply the skies and Queen Victoria presides over three-quarters of the known world—including the East Coast of America, following the failed revolution of 1775. London might as well be a world away from Sandsend, a tiny village on the Yorkshire coast. Gideon Smith dreams of the adventure promised him by the lurid tales of Captain Lucian Trigger, the Hero of the Empire, told in Gideon's favorite "penny dreadful." When Gideon's father is lost at sea in highly mysterious circumstances Gideon is convinced that supernatural forces are at work. Deciding only Captain Lucian Trigger himself can aid him, Gideon sets off for London. On the way he rescues the mysterious mechanical girl Maria from a tumbledown house of shadows and iniquities. Together they make for London, where Gideon finally meets Captain Trigger. But Trigger is little more than an aging fraud, providing cover for the covert activities of his lover, Dr. John Reed, a privateer and sometime agent of the British Crown. Looking for heroes but finding only frauds and crooks, it falls to Gideon to step up to the plate and attempt to save the day...but can a humble fisherman really become the true Hero of the Empire? David Barnett's Gideon Smith and the Mechanical Girl is a fantastical steampunk fable set against an alternate historical backdrop: the ultimate Victoriana/steampunk mash-up! At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

The Dr. Gideon Fell Mysteries Volume One

https://www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=138605826&fc=US&cjsku=138605826...
Three Golden Age British-style whodunits from the Edgar Award–winning writer Agatha Christie called “a master magician . . . the king of the art of misdirection.” One of the most popular Golden Age mystery authors, John Dickson Carr was also lauded by his peers. Agatha Christie offered him the highest praise from one mystery writer to another: “Very few detective stories baffle me, but Mr. Carr’s always do.” And Dorothy Sayers enthused: “Mr. Carr can lead us away from the small, artificial world of the ordinary detective plot into the menace of outer darkness. . . . Every sentence gives a thrill of positive pleasure.” Featured in Carr’s widely acknowledged masterpiece, The Hollow Man, Dr. Gideon Fell is a portly sleuth whose formidable intellect is the terror of every criminal in London and the envy of every detective in Scotland Yard. The Blind Barber: Aboard the majestic ocean liner Queen Victoria, the theft of a reel of top-secret government film sets off a chase involving stolen jewels, massive marionettes, and a corpse that won’t stay put. It will take the timely intervention of Dr. Fell to cut through the shipboard shenanigans and unmask a killer. “A good mystery and lots of fun in the bargain.” —The New York Times Death-Watch: A clockmaker is puzzled by the theft of the hands from a monumental new timepiece he is preparing for a member of the nobility. When one of the stolen hands is found buried between a policeman’s shoulder blades, stopping his clock for all time, Dr. Fell comes to the aid of Scotland Yard, putting him squarely in the path of a madman with nothing but time on his hands. “There has probably never been, either in real life or in fiction, a more elaborately planned crime than this one.” —The New York Times To Wake the Dead: On a wager, mystery novelist Christopher Kent travels from Johannesburg to London with only the cash in his wallet and the clothes on his back. He arrives with twenty-four hours to spare, his wallet and stomach both empty. But while having breakfast at a luxurious hotel, he is implicated in the murder of a guest. Fleeing the scene, Kent takes refuge with Dr. Fell. For Kent, getting to London was easy. The trick will be avoiding the hangman. “An excellent novel of crime and puzzlement.” —The New York Times
