The trap is laid. Now, Nick Everard must wait for the U-boats to arrive... Autumn 1942. Sir Nicholas Everard, Captain of the HMS Harbinger, has a convoy to escort: big and slow, with just one destroyer, two corvettes and a few trawlers to protect it. This will not be an easy mission. Meanwhile, U-boat pack commander Max Looff can hardly believe his luck. His nerve is going and he knows it: but now he has a one-in-a-million chance to annihilate an entire convoy... Little does Looff know, however, that Everard and his ships are bait: designed to distract the Germans from the real ‘Torch’ invasion forces. The game is on. For readers of Alexander Kent, Julian Stockwin and C S Forester, this is a thrilling tale of gallantry and determination in the face of enormous danger.

A covert submarine raid where everything is at risk The final days of the First World War, and the menacing bulk of the German battlecruiser Goeben lurks in the Golden Horn at Constantinople. It is vital that she is destroyed, or at least immobilised, and the favoured method is to send an E-class submarine in through the Dardanelles to the sea of Marmara. However, it is two years since an Allied submarine has passed through the Dardanelles successfully – the narrow straits are littered with minefields and nets, and are continually patrolled by gunboats. To send a submarine through now seems suicidal, but the alternative of sparing the Goeben is unthinkable. Aided by a Marine explosives expert and a taciturn intelligence specialist, Nick Everard is on board and in control, ready to run the gauntlet in his most dangerous mission yet...

The extraordinary, breathless final volume in the Nicholas Everard Naval Thrillers Six midget submarines are about to be towed underwater from Scotland to Norway. Their targets: the giant German warships Tirpitz, Scharnhorst and Lutzow. The odds seem stacked against the smaller craft. But if they can survive the nightmarish 2,000-mile tow, Commander Paul Everard will have a chance to gatecrash the fjords and cripple the ship Churchill calls ‘the Beast’. Whether or not he succeeds, the chances of getting out alive are slim. If he fails, his father Nick Everard, escort commander for Arctic convoy PQ19, is in trouble: none of his ships can stand up to Tirpitz’s broadsides. As The Gatecrashers draws to its thunderous climax, father and son face their final and most searching test... Based on the thrilling true story of Operation Source, The Gatecrashers is the blistering culmination of the bestselling Nicholas Everard Naval Thrillers.

England, 1718. Eliza lebt mit ihrer Mutter, einer Kräuterheilerin, in einem kleinen Dorf im ländlichen England. Als sie unverheiratet schwanger wird, ist sie verzweifelt. Ein Skandal scheint vorprogrammiert. Doch ihre Mutter schickt sie nach London, wo ein Apotheker namens Black sie als Hausmädchen aufnimmt. Eliza erhofft sich von Black eine Lösung für ihr "kleines Problem". Sie ahnt nicht, dass der geheimnisvolle, stets mit einem Schleier verhüllte Hausherr ganz andere Pläne mit ihr hat. Er betreibt unheimliche Studien und Eliza kommt ihm sehr gelegen für seine Experimente, die ihm, so hofft er, endlich Anerkennung als Wissenschaftler verschaffen. Was geht in dem Haus vor sich, und welche Rolle soll Eliza dabei spielen? Als sie schließlich erkennt, welches Geheimnis der Apotheker wirklich hütet, ist es für sie schon fast zu spät.

"Beim Spiel von Leben und Evolution sitzen drei Spieler am Tisch: Menschen, die Natur und Maschinen. Ich bin entschieden auf der Seite der Natur. Die Natur, vermute ich, ist aber auf der Seite der Maschinen." George Dyson führt vor, dass das Leben, nachdem es sich zunächst durch die biologische Evolution entwickelte, nun noch einmal entsteht, diesmal durch die spontane Evolution der Intelligenz innerhalb unseres rasch expandierenden Informationsnetzes. Das Ergebnis ist eine digitale Wildnis, in der bisher unbekannte Geschöpfe entstehen – Geschöpfe, die uns in Hinblick auf Geschwindigkeit, Intelligenz und Langlebigkeit bald überlegen sein werden. Dieses originelle Buch zeigt, wie die Entstehung der Maschinen mit ihrem Eigenleben – und möglicherweise einem eigenen Geist – schon lange in der Literatur und Wissenschaft vorausgesehen wurde, nachweisbar in den Werken von Hobbes, Samuel Butler, Erasmus Darwin und anderen. Dyson beschreibt diese alternative intellektuelle Geschichte und erzählt, wie frühere Denker das durchgespielt haben, was dann zu den Entdeckungen der wissenschaftlichen Abenteurer des 20. Jahrhunderts, unter ihnen Alan Turing, Norbert Wiener und John von Neumann, wurde. Wie Dyson schreibt, handelt dieses Buch nicht von der Zukunft. Es geht darum, wo wir jetzt stehen und wie wir hierher kamen; was aufregend genug ist.
