WHEN ALIENS INVADE, ONLY A CON MAN CAN SAVE THE DAY...
Hollis Palmer is not a good man. An unapologetic thief and womanizer, Hollis has no time for anything that won't profit him directly.

But ET's arrival proves to be a bigger catastrophe than Hollis - or humanity - expected. Meanwhile, his would-be hostage, Mia Davies, the trophy wife of his criminal boss, is making the aliens look like a walk in the park.
As their plans crumble along with the rest of the world, Hollis and Mia find themselves on the run from a motley crew of aliens, criminals, and crackpots.

The city of Austin is under siege, and only a charming criminal has any hope of saving ...
The Wormwood Windby Raushan Burkitbayeva - Nukenova(Hertfordshire Press) Price verified 30 minutes ago
This candid poetry collection is clearly the literary outpouring of a planetary citizen. A woman equally at home on the Steppes of Central Asia as much as the Capital cities of Europe. To my mind, a far from trivial verity once we recognise the innate femininity of her versification. Similarly to Sappho (5th Century BC), Nukenova allows everyone access into a woman's world, wherein seductive complexities of thought becomes manifest through wit and rhetoric. Admittedly, her images are often sharp-carefully elaborated for their own jovial sake.
A unique and engaging international tale of spies, assassins, evil-doers, politicians, clerics, billionaires, and, most important, a hero, a heroine, and a martyred saint.In this action-packed story, ex-Marine sniper Frank Gurrieri strikes back at the killer of his first love.Accomplished novelist Michael Wright thrills readers with a journey through Iran, Dubai, and Paris, giving a taste of cultures and the excitement of danger. Assassin Frank Gurierri joins the lineup of thriller heroes like Gabriel Allon, Jason Bourne, and John Rain.
Justice for Layla pits one man against the Iranian government in this timely political hair-raiser.

"What do we gain if an operative manages to break through the defenses in a US airport?" Al-Aran asked. "A few hundred dead and perhaps one aircraft. What if we could clip the wings of seven thousand passenger planes indefinitely? If multiple planes mysteriously exploded in-flight? The Americans will have to close their skies."
While millions of Americans go about their daily lives, halfway around the world an al-Qaeda cell hatches a deadly new terror plot. It's unthinkable in its devastation.
