Because sometimes, insanity and genius are indistinguishable... Agatha Witchley used to be a spy in the Cold War, but now she's locked up in the UK's premier maximum-security mental institution. She believes that the ghosts of the celebrity dead visit her padded cell and whisper the world's secrets in her ears. Which is a big problem for the British government, because she's the only one who can help them when an American billionaire is murdered in London in one of the strangest killings yet. The Home Secretary needs the case locked down and solved before the entrepreneur’s death becomes public knowledge and economic chaos ensures. The woman he has in mind for the job might be paranoid, she might be lethal, she might half-insane and drawing a pension, but it's amazing how you can forgive that in a genius when it's a genius's help you need. Yes, the security forces need Agatha Witchley again. It's just the ghosts of Churchill, Elvis and Groucho Marx they could do without.

The Agatha Witchley Mysteries >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Part 3 of The Agatha Witchley Mysteries: THE MOON MAN'S TALE Retired spy Agatha Witchley and her fellow agents from the Office are drawing very close to solving the mystery of the faked autoerotic asphyxiation of billionaire Simon Werks. But, the nearer the group get to the secret reasons behind the murder, the more bizarre, shocking and deadly is the conspiracy they stumble across. Soon, Agatha and her companions may regret coming so close to the truth . . . as the final truth could demand a lot more than assistance from the ghosts of Churchill, Elvis and Groucho Marx to survive. Because when the world needs saving, you don't send for Bourne, Bond or Kuryakin - you better call upon a psychopathic pensioner who doesn't just see dead people.

As the self-proclaimed biggest coward in the galaxy, Horatio has it easy on what passes for 40th century America. A much-favoured sycophant in the court of the King of Earth, Horatio lives in a genetically engineered paradise where there's a vat-grown slave waiting around every marble column with a bunch of grapes to drop into his oh-so-perfectly designed mouth. Unfortunately for Horatio, the artificial intelligence that rules the great mass of humanity spread across the stars has other plans for this feckless seducer. So, if you ever wonder how the galaxy's biggest coward finds himself actually trying to save it, you're not alone... but then, unfortunately, neither is our hero! His misadventures are abetted by a psychotic Martian warrior, a robot who thinks it's related to Sherlock Holmes, a beautiful genetically enhanced assassin, a scientist with a computer for a brain, and a millennia-old clone who was alive when the last U.S. President was executed by a firing squad. It's six against the galaxy. Six against the stars. They'll save the universe... but they might damage it first.

It is the final years of the 18th century, but a world which few would recognise. The people of Europe shelter in small islands of safety, havens from the enchanted wilderness - the strange boundless forests people call the Tumble. It is across this demon-haunted landscape that the low-born officer Taliesin must lead his men, caught up in the deadliest of intrigues while fighting wars for a noble class which despises him. With vicious murderers from the worst gutters in the Realm marching behind him, and the forces of the most powerful nations of the mainland arrayed against him, the odds are stacked against Taliesin. Heavily. Yet he will fight on, battling armies, sorcerers, assassins, beastmen and cross into the face of hell itself. Not for loyalty, or grudging respect for his scheming monarch - not even for the small mountain of silver the Island Queen has promised him if he succeeds. But because fighting is all he and his pressed band of cut-throats and thieves have ever known.

THE DARKNESS OF THE VIGIL (Book 1 of The Vigil series) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> DESCRIPTION When Eleanor Lythe was invited to attend a charity art ball with the rest of her children’s home, she wasn’t sure what to expect – but being fed on by semi-immortal vampires, bitten and turned into a slave of their evil race, certainly wasn’t it. Luckily, for Eleanor, the Vigil – the covert branch of the U.S. Secret Service formed to fight the forces of the supernatural – is on hand to cure her and protect her. But save her for just what sort of life? As Eleanor struggles to master her new powers, she comes to realise that in humanity’s struggle against the darkness, the wrong side could have saved her. Some of her fellow agents might be ripped hot – but does that actually matter if they are also willing to feed her to an ancient evil to achieve their mission? Because when your race is fighting a secret war for survival against vampires, zombies, werewolves, dark spirits, rogue angels and almost immortal Nazis, the worrying truth is . . . there might not be any safe side to trust! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> REVIEWS Praise for Stephen Hunt's novels: ‘Mr. Hunt takes off at racing speed.’ — THE WALL STREET JOURNAL ‘Hunt's imagination is probably visible from space.

RED SUN BLEEDING (Book three in the 'Sliding Void' series) DESCRIPTION It should have all been so easy for Captain Lana Fiveworlds, owner of Fiveworlds Shipping and master of the free trader starship ‘Gravity Rose’. A simple supply run to a mining operation in deep space on a world called Abracadabra. Alright, so the mining operation was illegal and the world unclaimed… that’s why the job paid so damn well. But now she’s stuck on a hothouse jungle planet, sweltering under the light of a dying red sun with not only oddly missing miners, but vanished crewmen too. The exiled barbarian prince Calder Durk had disappeared, presumed dragged over the mining camp’s laser fence by one of the not-so-pleasant local predators. The skipper may or may not be in love with him, but you can never leave one of your own behind. Lana’s android has a bad feeling about the place, and she also has to contend with an arrogant mission leader who is part of humanity’s near immortal super-rich ruling class. Things are looking bad, and that was before the space pirates her rivals have paid to put her out of business jumped in-system looking to hijack her ship. Sadly for the crew of the Gravity Rose, matters can get even worse when they discover why nobody’s ever survived Abracadabra long enough to put it on the charts. For this is one world with a terrible secret. And it just might be the last one for everyone trapped down on the planet. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ABOUT THE AUTHOR Stephen Hunt is the creator of the much-loved 'Far-called' fantasy series (Gollancz/Hachette), as well as the 'Jackelian' series, published across the world via HarperCollins alongside their other best-selling fantasy authors, George R.R.
