  • The Hidden Oasis
    by Sussman, Paul

    2152 BC, Egypt: as the Old Kingdom disintegrates and anarchy slowly engulfs the
    Nile valley, fifty priests set out under cover of darkness into the Western
    Desert, dragging with them a sled on which rests a mysterious object swathed in
    cloth. Weeks later, having reached their destination, they calmly commit mass
    ritual suicide... 1988, Georgia USSR: a plane takes off from an airfield near
    the recently decommissioned nuclear facility of Mtskheta. Its cargo will
    fundamentally alter the balance of power in the Gulf. Bound for the Sudan, it
    disappears somewhere over Egypt's western desert... The present day, Egypt: a
    group of Bedouin travelling near the edge of the Great Sand Sea stumble across a
    desiccated corpse, half buried in the dunes. With it are a compass, a camera and
    a notebook, its pages covered in an indecipherable jumble of jottings and
    figures. A short time later, Dr Freya Hannan will land at Luxor airport. She's
    coming to Egypt to attend the funeral of her estranged sister, Alex - an
    explorer who'd spent the past 15 years in the Middle East, and who'd seemingly
    taken her own life. For Freya, this marks the beginning of an extraordinary
    adventure - as she is swept up in the search - sometimes violent, often
    dangerous, always thrilling - for the answer to one of archaeology's greatest
    mysteries: the location of the legendary lost oasis of Zerzura, and the key to
    the astonishing, terrifying secret that lies at its heart...

  • Signal to Noise : Neil Gaiman Bibliothek 4
    by Gaiman, NEil

    ' Signal to Noise does not entertain. It scratches, it provokes, it frightens.
    It tells you things you don't want to know but then twists you inside out by
    saying, look harder and see the poignance, the beauty of light dancing on life's
    edge, truth that is as simple and direct as death' - Jonathan Carroll, from his
    introduction.....Originally commissioned and serialised in The Face , the comic
    strip Signal to Noise was then expanded and revised for its launch on the VG
    Graphics list in 1992 with an introduction by Jonathan Caroll. It tells the
    story of a film director, somewhere in London, dying of cancer. His life's
    crowning achievement, his greatest film, would have told the story of a European
    village as the last hour of 999 AD approached - the midnight which the villagers
    were convinced would bring with it Armageddon. Now that story will never be
    told. But he still pointlessly works it out in his head, making a film that no
    one will ever see. No one but the reader.....This Bloomsbury 2007 edition
    features specially commissioned new cover artwork.

  • The Strange Case of the Composer and His Judge
    by Duncker, Patricia

    The bodies are discovered on New Year's Day, sixteen dead in the freshly fallen
    snow. The adults lie stiff in a semicircle; the children, in pajamas and
    overcoats, are curled at their feet. When he hears the news, Commissaire André
    Schweigen knows who to call: Dominique Carpentier, the Judge, also known as the
    "sect hunter." Carpentier sweeps into the investigation in thick glasses and red
    gloves, and together the Commissaire and the Judge begin searching for clues in
    a nearby chalet. Among the decorations and unwrapped presents of a seemingly
    ordinary holiday, they find a leather-bound book, filled with mysterious code,
    containing maps of the stars. The book of the Faith leads them to the Composer,
    Friedrich Grosz, who is connected in some way to every one of the dead.
    Following his trail, Carpentier, Schweigen, and the Judge's assistant, Gaëlle,
    are drawn into a world of complex family ties, seductive music, and ancient
    cosmic beliefs. Hurtling breathlessly through the vineyards of Southern France
    to the gabled houses of Lübeck, Germany, through cathedrals, opera houses,
    museums, and the cobbled streets of an Alpine village, this ferocious new novel
    is a metaphysical mystery of astonishing verve and power.
