Fingest Yachts, based in the south of England, is a leading small boat company. It’s founder, Frank Fingest, has recently died, leaving his son’s wife, Debbi, to run the business. Debbi’s husband Harry is Frank’s son by his first marriage, a likeable man in his twenties, who is not really into business, so he has set off on a round-the-world in a Fingest yacht with his best mate Gerry. Before leaving the Galapagos islands on the long haul across the Pacific to the French Marquesas, he sends a routine letter to his wife. All’s well, nothing to report. Then silence. They have disappeared in the vastness of the Pacific. Tom Wells happened to be the man who delivered the Letter from Galapagos to Debbi and when her husband became seriously overdue she asked Tom to travel to the Pacific to see if he could find out what had happened to husband Harry. To say any more would reveal the plot!

Across the world, three officers must battle a hidden evil enemy as well as their own governments to unravel a dangerous mystery. What is the Silk Fist conspiracy, and will they expose the true culprits before it is too late? Sergeant Christopher Wyatt of the British Royal Protection Squad has been framed by a powerful source from the Russian media, linking him with Silk Fist, a mysterious conspiracy that threatens world peace. Mistrusted and branded a renegade traitor by the British authorities, he must clear his name by finding the true origin of these dangerous attacks. Linda Marquez is a sergeant of the United States Secret Service and trusted special assistant to the First Lady, until she is betrayed by a member of the US intelligence services or someone within the White House. No longer able to trust her own government, she puts aside her initial deep distrust of Wyatt to protect herself from these new enemies and prove her innocence. At the Indian Intelligence Service, Premendra Dhawan risks his own career to gather intelligence about the Silk Fist attacks. Together with Marquez and Wyatt, he must decipher a hard won series of clues that point to the upper echelons of the British and American governments, and a devastating attack on a gathering of world leaders... Can the three officers put their mistrust and suspicion of each other aside in order to expose the deadly plot? Will they ever discover the reasons behind the attacks? And will the ultimate secret of who is behind the Silk Fist conspiracy be revealed? Designed to be an entertaining and commercial thriller, The Silk Fist Conspiracy is set in many exotic and fascinating parts of the world. It is an ideal read for those who have an appreciation for facts, recent history and a gripping thriller. Featuring several red herring characters and a collection of puzzling clues, the book will keep readers guessing, chapter after chapter. With an equal balance of tough action and deepening relationships, this is a story that keeps the reader enthralled and surprised until the very end.
A NEW YORK TIMES 100 NOTABLE BOOKS OF 2019 SELECTION

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It.

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.
