About the author

Trained as a physicist, philosopher and economist in a nearish galaxy quite a long time ago, Stewart Hotston now works in high finance fiddling around with weapons of financial destruction. When he’s not doing that, he’s probably writing or hitting people with medieval European swords. His writing spans genres including sci‑fi, horror, fantasy and just plain weird with more than a dozen short stories published and two novels.

A trio of heart-stopping thrillers from the New York Times–bestselling author—including the “vibrant and cerebral” #1 international bestseller, The Eight (Los Angeles Times).
 
People magazine said of Katherine Neville’s debut novel and #1 international bestseller, The Eight: “With alchemical skill, Neville blends modern romance, historical fiction, and medieval mystery . . . and comes up with gold.” Mining a fertile territory of international intrigue, complex conspiracies, history-spanning storylines, and unstoppable female heroines, Neville has arguably struck gold with all three of these thrillers.
 
A Calculated Risk: In this New York Times Notable Book, computer expert Verity Banks is the one of the most powerful women in finance and has a shot at becoming director of security at the Federal Reserve. When her boss sabotages her career ambitions, Verity decides to get revenge by targeting the company’s balance sheet. Her old mentor, Zoltan Tor, will help her, but only if Verity agrees to an outlandish and dangerous wager. To beat both Zoltan and her boss, Verity must risk her professional reputation—and her very life.
 
The Eight: In sweeping parallel stories set in the 1970s and the 1790s, Catherine Velis, a computer expert, and Mireille and Valentine, novices in an abbey during the French Revolution, must prevent a legendary chess set containing secret powers from falling into the wrong hands. With its “combination of historical references, conspiracy theory and action/thriller format,” this #1 international bestseller “may have paved the way for books like The Da Vinci Code” (Publishers Weekly).
 
The Magic Circle: Suddenly in possession of a mysterious cache of medieval manuscripts that have the power to alter the destiny of humankind, nuclear scientist Ariel Behn is swept into the deadly center of international intrigue—and a mystery that dates back to the time of Christ—as she races to prevent a worldwide catastrophe in this USA Today bestseller.
Some men are so blind, only Evil can make them see. Chip Adams may be nearing his forties, but the world looks the same as it did when he was a kid. He lives in a sheltered neighborhood in a San Francisco suburb in the house where he was born, a museum of childhood memories he shares with his adoring family. An amateur magician, he still has every toy he’s ever owned. Why grow up? But time is working against Chip and clinging to childhood comes with a price: His little boy is recovering from a serious illness. With his toy and magic shop failing, Chip has mortgaged his house to keep it afloat. His little church is also going under. His wife, Ruth, offers to work. But even that small compromise would signal the end of the values that Chip clings to. All you need is magic, he fervently believes. All you need is prayer to stay forever young. Then, one night, comes an answer to his prayers: Two million dollars in cash appears in his garbage can. A gift from God? Or something else? Something worse . . . . Like a gift from the Devil, in the guise of Thornton, legendary underworld troubleshooter, enforcer and assassin of blazing malice, reptilian cunning and piercing eye for human frailty. He’s a man who loves his job, a villain among villains. As Thornton mounts a campaign of duplicity and ruthless terror against the Adams family, Chip is forced out of his silo into hiring a pair of rough n’ worldly bodyguards. But when they bring more help than he’s willing to accept, Chip forcibly resists, exposing both his family and community to even greater danger. Because Thornton is out there. Thornton will stop at nothing. In a spectacular final confrontation with Thornton, set against the backdrop of a huge amusement park, Chip realizes he must come to grip with the changes in his life and world if he’s to have any hope of saving both. An exhilarating blend of Alfred Hitchcock’s impish wit with the steely gaze of Richard Stark and the strutting villainy of a Sergio Leone movie, Now Speaks the Devil is a comic noir suspense tale that will pull you to the edge of your seat. With the third in his series of original screenplays, Thomas Burchfield, the author of Dragon’s Ark and The Uglies: A Crime Saga, has conjured another fast-paced wicked thriller.
