A 'take no prisoners' approach to life has seen Paul Carter heading to some of the world's most remote, wild and dangerous places as a contractor in the oil business. Taking postings in some of the world's wildest and most remote regions, Paul has worked in locations as far-flung as the North Sea, Middle East, Borneo and Tunisia and as flat out dangerous as Columbia, Nigeria and Russia, with some of the maddest and strangest people you could ever hope not to meet.

This modern classic of military history has been called "one of the most important personal accounts of war that I have ever read" by distinguished historian John Keegan. Author E.B. Sledge served with the First Marine Division during World War II, and his first-hand narrative is unsurpassed in its sincerity. Sledge’s experience shows in this fascinating account of two of the most harrowing and pivotal island battles of the Pacific theater.

Following on from the bestselling Next, Michael Crichton's new novel will repeat the winning formula established with novels such as Jurassic Park: to identify future trends in science and imagine the most astonishing - and terrifying - possibilities that they hold for Mankind. Always interesting, often controversial, Next and State of Fear put him straight back in the headlines - and bestseller charts - and reaffirmed his position as the thriller master.
