Charles Hayden returns in the thrilling new naval adventure from bestselling author S. Thomas Russell, today’s “Patrick O’Brian for a new generation” (Kirkus Reviews). Master and Commander Charles Hayden has received fresh orders that take him and the HMS Themis to the Caribbean, with instructions to meddle with French shipping to the colonies. While en route, they rescue two Spanish castaways who beg for help fleeing from a vengeful family situation—Hayden agrees to do what he can, though it’s soon clear his two new guests aren’t exactly what they seem. Arriving in the lawless Caribbean seas, Hayden and Themis find themselves torn between the forces of reckless English captains, conflicts between royalist and revolutionary Frenchmen, and Spanish ships that are enemies to both England and France. And when someone very dear to him is kidnapped, Hayden may sacrifice everything in a reckless pursuit to save her. . . .

WHEN THE SEA SHALL GIVE UP HER DEAD The year is 2012 and Tod Johnson, a senior CIA officer, receives a call from a man with whom he has not spoken in some twenty years. This man is Ari Arad, a semi-retired officer of the Aman, the security arm of the Israeli Army. In an atypically urgent voice, Ari urges Tod to come to meet with him in Israel the next day. There, Tod is told a shocking secret which could have disastrous consequences for both Israel and America. Exactly what consequences, when they will occur, and where, are completely unknown. After several days of fruitless speculation, Tod is attempting to return to Boston when his El Al plane is turned around in mid-flight and heads back to Tel Aviv. As Tod suspects, the person behind this in-flight maneuver is Ari himself, who, in a city in the Negev Desert, has discovered a cryptic note: 17, 9, 12 Lituya Bay 100,000,000 dead This note was found beside the body of a man who had access to one of Israels greatest secrets; a secret that Tod and Ari must now assume has been give to someone bent on mass murder. The two quickly come to the conclusion that the numbers on the first line of the note represent a dateSeptember 17, 2012, but the critical questions of who, where and how these terrorists intend to kill 100 million people remain unanswered. Through a tortuous process of elimination Ari concludes that a 100 year-old man living in Beirut, the last living senior member of the Nazi holocaust machine, may be the individual behind the plot. However, an elaborate attempt to infiltrate this mans organization fails, and the pair are left to continue their speculations. They ultimately conclude that the only way the number of deaths indicated in the note could be achieved is through the cataclysmic employment of a vast amount of water, billions of tons of water. The second half of the book is devoted to the events of the 8 days remaining until the disaster is scheduled to occur. The story travels back and forth from Washington to North Africa, to Israel, to Boston, to Spain, to the Mediterranean, to Beirut, to the Canary Islands and back again. The cast of characters includes: the female President of the United States, the Prime Minister of Spain, a beautiful and brainy CIA analyst, various North African Arabs, the Special Forces officer who recently captured Bin Laden, former Mossad agents, and even Tods wife. Eventually, Tod and Ari discover the nature and location of the plot, but are they too late to prevent it?

Life in Hawaii is a brief overview of the life and times of Titus Coan (1801-1882), an extraordinary man who lived during the early days of the colonization of Hawaii. He was born and raised in rural Connecticut, graduated from Auburn Theological Seminary and was ordained in 1833. In 1834 he sailed with his new wife, Fidelia Church, to Hilo, where he was to remain and make his life’s work for the next 48 years. After learning and mastering the Hawaiian language, he won the confidence of the Hawaiians and converted thousands to Christianity. He set up schools, as did his wife, and provided medical assistance and comfort to a rapidly changing culture. He later established churches and trained native converts to act as missionaries among their own people. He traveled extensively, and at times with great peril, throughout his island home and later to the Marquesas Islands. His adventures and descriptions of first-time encounters with both the environment and the people are quite remarkable. This was a time of great excitement and great despair. Foreign interests in Hawaii, military engagements, visitors of renown, and Hawaiian Kings all provide a rather colorful backdrop against which his story is told. In addition to his missionary labors, Titus Coan added a great deal to our knowledge of volcanic eruptions. He corresponded and worked with geologist James Dwight Dana, performed many observations, and published with the American Journal of Science. For decades he explored and recorded the volcanic activity on the island of Hawaii.

Mrs Duberly's journal is one of the most vivid eye-witness accounts we have of the Crimean War. Fanny Duberly, then aged 25, accompanied her husband to the Crimea in 1854, and remained there until the end of the fighting, the only officer's wife to remain throughout the entire campaign. She survived the severe winter of 1854-55, witnessed the battle of Balaklava and the charge of the Light Brigade, and rode through the ruins of Sebastopol. Spirited and courageous, she was known by sight to British and French soldiers across the battlefields, regarded often with enthusiasm and sometimes with disapproval. Witty and beautiful, she enjoyed flirtatious friendships with many of the most important men of the campaign. Her Journal kept during the Russian War was published in 1855 and caused a sensation. Although widely praised as the 'new heroine for the Crimea', Fanny was also censured, ridiculed, and even parodied in Punch. She had stepped into a man's world, and written about it in a way that seemed to some at the front an invasion of privacy and to others at home an abandonment of gentility. A best-seller at the time, the Journal was not reprinted after its second edition of 1856, and this is the first edition since that time.

Tracing an awe-inspiring oceanic route from Boston, around Cape Horn, to the California coast, Two Years Before the Mast is both a riveting story of adventure and the most eloquent, insightful account we have of life at sea in the early nineteenth century. Richard Henry Dana is only nineteen when he abandons the patrician world of Boston and Harvard for an arduous voyage among real sailors, amid genuine danger. The result is an astonishing read, replete with vivid descriptions of storms, whales, and the ship's mad captain, terrible hardship and magical beauty, and fascinating historical detail, including an intriguing portrait of California before the gold rush. As D. H. Lawrence proclaimed, "Dana's small book is a very great book."
