    The Large Hadron Collider is the biggest, and by far the most powerful, machine ever built. A project of CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, its audacious purpose is to re-create, in a 16.5-mile-long circular tunnel under the French-Swiss countryside, the immensely hot and dense conditions that existed some 13.7 billion years ago within the first trillionth of a second after the fiery birth of our universe.

    Story

    Present at the creation is a highly accessible introduction to particle physics, quantum mechanics and the history of CERN. Very enjoyable, with enough physics background to explain latest research without getting lost in technical detail.

    Story

    MI6 plan to assassinate the leading maker of IEDs - roadside bombs- as he leaves his house in Iran. But first, they need to know when he is leaving. So it is that Danny 'Badger' Baxter finds himself in Iran, lumbered with a partner he loathes, lying next to a mosquito-infested marsh, observing the house. And knowing that if they are caught, Her Majesty's Government will deny all knowledge of them.

    Story

    Very much recommend. Seymour's characters feel real and are inbuilt with the complexities, vices, emotion and doubts that drive and cripple us. It's not that the story has twists and turns that makes it so interesting. You feel with the characters at every step and just have to keep listening.

    Story
    (1902)

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    Story

    Demille grabs you from the opening sequence and hold you for the remainder of the book. Interestingly this pre 911 story has many insights into middle eastern culture, politics and terrorism that are very relevant today. Looking forward to the sequel.
