In the bestselling "Red Phoenix", Larry Bond showed, in a world of explosive uncertainty, what a new Korean War would be like. Now, in VORTEX, he takes his storytelling powers one astonishing step further in an epic novel set in one of the most emotionally charged global flashpoints today - South Africa. As the forces of white supremacy make their last ruthless stand, as chaos threatens an entire continent, and as the world is faced with Armageddon itself, America mobilizes Operation Brave Fortune, a full-scale war effort it will wage on land, at sea, in the air...

Rodeado de montañas salvajes, el Valle de los Leones es un lugar legendario de Afganistán donde las costumbres y las personas apenas han cambiado con el paso de los siglos. Un escenario muy apropiado para un relato de espionaje e intriga protagonizado por una joven inglesa, un médico francés y un trotamundos norteamericano, que transcurre en la etapa más terrible de la guerra contra los invasores soviéticos.
Rok 1982. Do Afganistanu okupowanego przez wojska sowieckie przybywa Jean-Pierre Debout, francuski lewicowy ideowiec, by pod przykrywką pracy lekarza na bieżąco informować KGB o dostawach broni i leków z terenu Pakistanu. Wskutek jego donosów dochodzi do masakry jednego z oddziałów partyzanckich. O pracę dla Rosjan nie podejrzewa go nikt oprócz żony – Angielki Jane. Sytuacja zmienia się, gdy w ten sam rejon trafia z misją szkolenia rebeliantów niegdysiejszy przyjaciel Jean-Pierre'a, kiedyś kochanek Jane, agent CIA Ellis Thaler. Dawna miłość wybucha z nową siłą, a rozgrywka polityczna między mężczyznami staje się również rywalizacją o uczucie pięknej kobiety.
Wars come to an end. But then new ones begin. Just weeks after Hitler's suicide, Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS find themselves up to their necks in battles every bit as fierce as the ones just ended. The first is political-the very survival of the OSS, with every department from Treasury to War to the FBI grabbing for its covert agents and assets. The second is on a much grander scale-the possible next world war, against Joe Stalin and his voracious ambitions. To get a jump on the latter, Frade has been conducting a secret operation, one of great daring-and great danger-but to conduct it and not be discovered, he and his men must walk a perilously dark line. One slip, and everyone becomes a casualty of war.
It began with a double murder: particularly vicious, particularly gruesome. There was only one witness: but little Melody Quinn can't or won't say a word. Which is where child psychologist Alex Delaware comes in - and takes the first step into a maelstrom of atrocities…A breathtaking novel about the sewer of perversion and corruption lying below the glittering surface of California cool.
"Yes", Smith said, "he's taken over the city. He has given an open invitation to organized crime to move its operations into Bay City. He's opening the piers so that contraband can move in and out easily, so drugs can flow freely. Mob interests are coming from all over the country..setting up cutting rooms and jewelry factories for stolen diamonds..printing facilities for counterfeit stock certificates and securities..major counting rooms for what may become the nation's biggest illegal gambling operations. It'll be the crime capital of the U.S. within a few months!"
"Well, there's capitalism at work again. Proving that our system works best," said Remo.
"..And we want you and Chiun to keep him alive. Of course, he won't know who you are or who you work for," said Smith.
"Or why. Which includes us, as usual. But that's O.K., if we can't kill him with kindness, then we'll CURE him," said Remo.
"Let's not get into that," gasped Smith.
Tulsa Torrent, America's biggest lumber company, is stumped when a couple of its key scientists are axed. Seems the deceased were part of a team developing an oil-producing tree, and a lot of interested parties have been looking to grease their palms.
Before anyone else is pulped, Remo and Chiun are planted to see the project out of the woods. But danger sprouts at every turn, and when the environmentalist High Sierra Society enters the picture, determined to make Tulsa Torrent take a hike, the project rests on pines and needles.
Somebody's barking up the wrong tree, and Remo and Chiun must get to the root of the matter before the unknown hatchet man mulches America's energy future into one big compost heap...

Сам слизеринский принц не смог противиться её очарованию и полюбил её, глубоко и искренне, несмотря на то, что она оказалась в Гриффиндоре. Спустя некоторое время она сообщает Малфою и Поттеру, что они — носители особой силы стихий, и что они должны пробудить эту силу в себе, ибо страшный враг надвигается на этот мир, грозя полностью уничтожить его. Смогут ли юноши примириться и сражаться рядом против общего неприятеля?
II часть: приехав в Ашкелон, Гарри и Драко узнают, что остальные Алас’сары — Дамблдор и сам Лорд Вольдеморт! Чтобы они не поубивали друг дружку, Пэнтекуин накладывает на Вольдеморта особое заклятье. Отношения Драко и Валькери переходят на новую ступень; Малфой овладевает Силой. После каникул все трое возвращаются в Хогвартс.

Предупреждение: ну, в первой части ничего особенного, а вот во второй будет гораздо круче, так что впечатлительным, нервным и стыдливым просьба удалиться!
Remo and Chiun must focus on the dizzy series of events connecting the banana republic of Hispania, the Peaches of Mecca, and a luscious blonde named Gloria X. The missing like lies in the tequila-soaked brain of Barney Daniels, an ex-CIA agent who is spirited away to a mental hospital when he tips a few wild stories to the press.
Under the influence of an intoxicating woman, the groggy sot becomes a hired assassin and gets into some tight situations. Every cutthroat in New York City is plying his with drinks to find out what he knows, and Daniels is having a high time...until someone slips him a mickey.
It all comes back to his staggering memory in a dream: it's not the U.S. but the Russkies who are pouring missiles into the lush jungles of Hispania. Unless Remo and Chiun act fast, Washington, D.C. is likely to get blasted.
A Gross Business.
Wesley Pruiss was just a misunderstood and misled publishing entrepreneur. The dirtier his little magazine got the more money he made. There seemed to be no limit to the dirt or the money. His full-color monthly, called Gross, soon spawned a chain of raunchy nightclubs ("Grossouts") and now a spectacular motion picture was being planned. Disgusting un-American, even.
Enter Remo and Chiun. Not to destroy, but to protect! Disgusting, but very American.
Who'd want to kill a dirty publisher? Why worry about the rottenest, most depraved publication in history?
Because of the oil industry and their concern over the growth of solar energy, obviously. Oil makes the world go round. It'd be perverse to think otherwise.
..as you'll quickly learn in this thirty-sixth volume in the violent chronicle of the Destroyer, the invincible shatterer of worlds from Sinanju.
The Russians want Afghanistan.
But not its people.
And a soviet cannibal has found a weapon to annihilate the populace — a chemical called Devils Rain.
With intell supplied by a CIA spook, Mack Bolan leads a unit of the feared mujahedeen, the holy warriors of Islam, in a campaign to stop an atrocity that will kill millions!
A police chief betrays his code of honor to the Mafia and tries to persuade fellow officers to accept money from the Mob. Those who refuse are killed.
Through all his miles along the hellfire trail, the Executioner has always looked on the police as soldiers on the same side.
But Mack Bolan sees this lawman as a traitor, both to his badge and to Bolans cause. Will the warrior break his own rules to stop the corrupt cop?
Mack Bolan learns that archenemy Greb Strakhov is in Lebanon. The Executioner has a personal vendetta with the KGB terror merchant.
Bolans mission is twofold: to settle the score with Strakhov, and to avenge the 240 U.S. Marines who lie dead in the wake of a suicide-bomber attack. A single life lost is unacceptable to Bolan.
But not even the combat-hardened Executioner is prepared for the utter carnage he finds in Beirut. There, Death respects no barriers.
In a conflict in which none of the warrior factions seem to want peace, Bolan knows what he has to do. Make sure that the savages instigating the strife are silenced — forever!
Rumors and rumbles of a Cuban exile connection with the Mafia crime machine in Miami have come to Bolans ears.
The Executioner enters an old battleground, only to find hordes of Cuban outcasts crowding the city center, and the teeming core of Miami pulsing to a new Latin death song.
Grim specters and faithful friends of a former life weave a deja vu tapestry as Bolan hits both the Mob and an exile splinter movement.
Clouds of terror hang low over Americas southern ocean playground. The rumbles are turning to thunder. Unless Bolan can stop the Havana hurricane, Miami and its beaches will be awash in blood!
Mack Bolan, exhausted by the firestorm that is his life, decides to take a well-deserved R and R. But instead of some tropical resort, the Executioner plans to challenge natures whims in the depths of an Icelandic glacier.
On a perilous trip beneath the polar ice cap, he makes a discovery to startling it is tantamount to an act of war.
And the innocent vacation becomes a hunt — with Bolan as the prey.
Mack was back in an undercover role. Posing as a U.S. Army sergeant selling guns to terrorists, Bolan struck deep into the ranks of Europes most brutal group of Kidnappers.
A team of world-class athletes had been taken hostage. The captors — the Zwilling Horde. The aim— pirating of a deadly chemical weapon. The answer — Mack Bolan!
The Executioner was up against fearsome adversaries — the vicious Tania, who liked to scorch the flesh of friends, and the hideous Rudi, a giant hulk whose battle with Bolan added a new dimension to savagery.
But they didnt have a chance in hell. When Bolan is reduced to bare fists, only the dead are safe!
