Nun hat auch Tscham, der Radscha von Bihar, die brutale Macht der Ostindischen Handelskompanie erfahren müssen. Gegen alles Recht schmachtet er im Kerker des Generalgouverneurs. Wieder greifen der Pfeifer und seine Freunde unerschrocken ein, getreu ihrem Grundsatz, Unfreiheit und Unrecht zu bekämpfen, wo immer sie es antreffen. So erfährt auch der geheimnisumwitterte Pirat Dieuxdonne, der einen privaten Rachekrieg gegen den Verderber seiner Familie führt, die gerechte Großmut des Pfeifers.
In October 1789, Captain Richard Bolitho, in command of the frigate Tempest, arrives at Sydney, capital of the infant colony of New South Wales. The ship has been in commission for two years and has been employed on isolated patrols, searching out pirates and protecting the great spread of trading concessions and their vulnerable supply routes. Instead of being ordered to England as he hopes, Bolitho is despatched to the outwardly idyllic islands of the Great South Sea where yet another trading concession has been claimed for the Crown. He hears of the Bounty mutiny in the same waters, and is aware of the many temptations to his own men, and to himself. Unknown to him, the uneasy peace across Europe is relentlessly drawing to an end, and when news of the French Revolution eventually reaches Bolitho's lonely command he finds danger and death among the islands, and an involvement which is both personal and tragic.
Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon return in the extraordinary new novel in the #1 New York Times—bestselling series by the grand master of adventure.
May 1902: a volcano erupts on the French island of Martinique with devastating force. But the local population are not its only victims. Also destroyed is a ship carrying a German scientist on the verge of an astonishing breakthrough. More than a century later, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon are about to confront that scientist's terrifying legacy.
Cabrillo and his crew are forced to meticulously fake the sinking of the Oregon during a covert operation. But when an unknown adversary tracks them down despite their best-laid plans, Cabrillo and his team struggle to fight back against this would-be assassin who seems able to anticipate their every move.
Meanwhile it appears that a traitorous American weapons designer has completed the long dead German's work, and now wields an extraordinary power. This discovery forces the Oregon out of the shadows to prevent an attack that would lead the largest one man empire the world has ever known…
Displaying all the shotgun pace and breathtaking plotting that are Clive Cussler's hallmarks, Piranha is a inspired new thriller from the World's No. 1 Adventure Writer.
A group of scientists and professional divers descend 4,500 feet into the Cayman Trench to research the hydrothermal vents which were recently discovered there.
An accident on the bottom leaves just three members of the crew struggling for survival.

DAŽI VARDI IEVADAM
Šī būs hronika par sešu mēnešu ilgo ceļojumu, kurā es kopā ar savu biedru devos uz Kamerūnas lielā lietus mežiem Rietumāfrikā. Šim ceļojumam bija divi mērķi: pirmkārt, gribējām sagūstīt un dzīvus aizvest uz mājām interesantos zvērus, putnus un rāpuļus, kas mīt šajā zemes malā; otrkārt, mēs abi sen bijām lolojuši sapni apskatīt Āfriku. Ne baltā cilvēka Āfriku ar autoceļiem, kokteiļu bāriem un ātrvilcieniem, kas dārdot traucas pa apvidiem, kuru floru un faunu noplicinājuši civilizācijas atnestie labumi. Gribējām redzēt vienu no tiem kontinenta apvidiem, kas paglābies no šāda likteņa un vairāk vai mazāk līdzinās Āfrikai, kad tā tikko bija atklāta.

Perfect for fans of Clive Cussler and Dan Brown, Pyramid is a thrilling new adventure starring fearless marine archaeologist Jack Howard, in a heart-stopping quest to uncover an ancient Egyptian secret — and make the most amazing discovery of our time.
EVERYONE KNEW THE STORY OF ANCIENT EGYPT.
For thousands of years, Egypt was a rich, ingenious civilization. Then it became a fertile hunting ground for archaeologists and explorers. Now the streets of Cairo teem with violence as a political awakening shakes the region. In the face of overwhelming danger, Jack Howard and his team of marine archaeologists have gathered pieces of a fantastic puzzle. But putting it together may cost them their lives.
Howard has connected a mystery hidden inside a great pyramid to a fossilized discovery in the Red Sea and a 150-year-old handwritten report of a man who claims to have escaped a labyrinth beneath Cairo. For that his team is stalked by a brutal extremist organization that will destroy any treasure they find.
As people fight and die for their rights aboveground, Jack fights for a discovery that will shed an astounding new light on the greatest story ever told: Moses’s exodus from Egypt and the true beginnings of a new chapter in human history.
America's most elite soldiers are about to uncover one of history's deadliest secrets…
When a raid on an insurgent safehouse leads to a clue to decoding one of the world's greatest mysteries — the Voynich manuscript — which may contain a recipe for creating the ultimate biological weapon of mass destruction, Delta operator Jack Sigler must forge a new black ops team to avert catastrophe. While bullets fly, he recruits a group of deadly warriors with dangerous secrets, assigning each member a chess piece callsign and dubbing them Chess Team.
But nothing is what it seems… and no one can be trusted. As the search for the truth about the manuscript moves across Asia and into the darkest reaches of human history, Chess Team must battle enemies beyond comprehension — nightmare creatures of myth and perverse creations of science — to preserve a secret as old as life itself.
In 2009, bestselling novelist Jeremy Robinson launched the adventures of Jack Sigler and Chess Team. Now, learn how it all began! Witness Chess Team's beginning as King, Queen, Bishop, Rook, Knight and the elusive Deep Blue come together to form the only military force smart enough and dangerous enough to face the world's most deadly, most high tech and most monstrous threats.
Some legends are true.
It is a myth out of history, spawned by Native American lore and the stories of Spanish Explorers. But what if the legends are true? Former Navy SEAL turned treasure hunter Uriah "Bones" Bonebrake sets off on his first solo adventure in this action-packed novella.
When television host Joanna Slater hires bones to help investigate one of Florida's oldest and best-known legends, their crew gets more than they bargained for. Mystery and thrills abound in PRIMITIVE!
Unstoppable husband and wife team Sam and Remi Fargo face a challenge even they may not be able to beat in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series
Going on a treasure hunt. X marks the spot. It’s children’s rhyme for a reason. While wealth can be lost or stolen, and even found again — if husband-and wife treasure-hunters Sam and Remi Fargo are on the case — a long-forgotten map is just the stuff of bedtime stories. Like Long John Silver and Robin Hood. But when Sam and Remi try the unthinkable, a relaxing vacation and a visit to a rare bookstore, a very real dead body suggests what they hold in their hands is an actual, ink on paper guide to a historic fortune.
When the Fargos take up the challenge, they find themselves flying from California to Arizona, from Jamaica to England. Racing against a vicious corporate raider with an unhealthy obsession for this particular treasure, Sam and Remi are slowed by a new betrayal at every turn. It can only mean one thing: someone on their team cannot be trusted.
Buzzing with the chemistry and wit of Sam and Remi Fargo’s chemistry and wit, Pirate reinvents the classic treasure hunt as only a Clive Cussler adventure can.
Ben Cartwright, former soldier, home to mourn the loss of his father stumbles upon cryptic letters from the past between the author, Arthur Conan Doyle and his great, great grandfather who vanished while exploring the Amazon jungle in 1908.
Amazingly, these letters lead Ben to believe that his ancestor’s expedition was the basis for Doyle’s fantastical tale of a lost world inhabited by long extinct creatures. As Ben digs some more he finds clues to the whereabouts of a lost notebook that might contain a map to a place that is home to creatures that would rewrite everything known about history, biology and evolution.
But other parties now know about the notebook, and will do anything to obtain it. For Ben and his friends, it becomes a race against time and against ruthless rivals.
In the remotest corners of Venezuela, along winding river trails known only to lost tribes, and through near impenetrable jungle, Ben and his novice team find a forbidden place more terrifying and dangerous than anything they could ever have imagined.
HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD YOU KILL TO LIVE FOREVER?
Imagine a world where soldiers regenerate and continue fighting without pause, where suicide bombers live to strike again and again. This is the dream of Richard Ridley, founder of Manifold Genetics, and he has just discovered the key to eternal life: an ancient artifact buried beneath a Greek-inscribed stone in the Peruvian desert.
When Manifold steals the artifact and abducts archeologist Dr. George Pierce, United States Special Forces Delta operator Jack Sigler, call sign King, and his “Chess Team” — Queen, Knight, Rook, Bishop, and their handler, Deep Blue — give chase. Formed under special order from President Duncan, they are the best of America’s Special Forces, tasked with antiterrorism missions that take them around the world against any threat, ancient, modern, and at times, inhuman. With cutting-edge weapons, tough-as-nails tactics, and keen intellects, they stand alone on the brink, facing the world’s most dangerous threats.
Ridley’s plan to create unstoppable soldiers has just made him threat number one. Tension soars along with the body count as the team faces high-tech security forces, hordes of “regens,” the horrific results of Manifold’s experiments, and a resurrected mythological predator complete with regenerative abilities, seven heads, and a savage appetite. The Chess Team races to save Pierce and stop Manifold before they change the face of genetics — and human history — forever.
Heart-pounding action combines with adrenaline-charged suspense in the first of Jeremy Robinson’s smart, sharp series featuring the Chess Team.
It was true — it was all true — and we were never meant to be there.
In December 2018, Ben Cartwright, former Special Forces soldier, and a team of naive explorers, followed the clues left by his ancestor to a hidden plateau in the middle of the Amazon jungle. It was said that once every 10 years, a secret pathway was revealed to a world long since gone.
They went, and what they found was a place of wonders and of horrors. Only Ben and his childhood love, Emma, survived. But when the doorway to the hidden world closed, Ben was trapped on the wrong side.
Now, Emma has waited 10 long years for the doorway to open again. This time she’d be ready. This time she had everything she needed to go back to that hellish place and survive. All she needed was for Ben to be alive when she got there.
PRIMORDIA II explores a prehistoric world and travels over mountains, through swamps, strange jungles, and dives below a primordial ocean, in the stunning sequel to the blockbusting PRIMORDIA.
“A small change today can change our tomorrow. A small change 100 million years ago can change everything.”
No one really noticed when things started to change. Some animals vanished. Some new ones appeared. Then some things appeared that were monstrous.
No one seemed to notice except Ben Cartwright and the other survivors of the hidden plateau in the depths of the Amazon Jungle. Only they were aware of the growing threat to the human race.
While Andy Martin lived out his dreams by venturing north to witness the birth of the American continent and navigate a prehistoric inland sea of the Late Cretaceous, whatever he was doing was rippling forward to change our world.
Every day brought new threats in the form of creatures that should have long been extinct, or newly evolved monstrosities that were from mankind’s worst nightmares.
The comet, Primordia, was returning and time was up. They had to go back and find Andy and stop him before mankind vanished from the face of the Earth.
In the thrilling 3rd installment of the blockbusting PRIMORDIA series, Greig Beck explores a frightening world where evolution has gone wild, while also taking us further into the prehistoric Cretaceous jungle and oceans, to a time in which mankind was never meant to exist.
