Description : The international bestselling godfather of Nordic Noir takes on one of the most horrific periods of modern history, in a stunning standalone thriller ... NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER ‘The Courier is a stylish stand-alone thriller from the godfather of Scandi noir ... Ola Dahl ratchets up the tension from the first pages and never lets go’ The Times ‘Cleverly braiding together past and present, the who and why of murder and betrayal are unpicked. The detail is impressive’ Daily Mail In 1942, Jewish courier Ester is betrayed, narrowly avoiding arrest by the Gestapo. In a great haste, she escapes to Sweden, saving herself. Her family in Oslo, however, is deported to Auschwitz. In Stockholm, Ester meets the resistance hero, Gerhard Falkum, who has left his little daughter and fled both the Germans and allegations that he murdered his wife, Åse, who helped Ester get to Sweden. Their burgeoning relationship ends abruptly when Falkum dies in a fire. And yet, twenty-five years later, Falkum shows up in Oslo. He wants to reconnect with his daughter. But where has he been, and what is the real reason for his return? Ester stumbles across information that forces her to look closely at her past, and to revisit her war-time training to stay alive... Written with Dahl's trademark characterization and elegant plotting, The Courier sees the hugely respected godfather of Nordic Noir at his best, as he takes on one of the most horrific periods of modern history, in an exceptional, shocking thriller. ‘Absorbing, heart-rending and perfectly plotted. Kjell Ola Dahl’s The Courier passes seamlessly from the present to the dark past of WWII. Fabulous!’ Denzil Meyrick ‘Skilfully juggling three Oslo timelines — in 1942, 1967 and 2015 — Dahl starts his story with Germany’s occupation of Norway and the work of those who tried to resist, then brings his characters forward to a post-war unravelling of what really happened in those dangerous days — and the traumatic rewriting of personal stories’ The Times Crime Club ‘The Courier is very good on the socio-political situation of the time, the relationship between Norway and neutral neighbour Sweden. This is a gritty but ultimately uplifting story. Superbly translated by Don Bartlett’ NB Magazine ‘A fascinating, intricate, provocative read, set in motion by events in 1942, and brilliantly highlighting human need and emotions ... ‘The Courier’ sent a shiver coursing through me, it is a truly eloquent and rewarding tale, and oh that ending!’ LoveReading ‘Written with Dahl’s trademark characterisation and clever plotting, The Courier sees one of Norway’s most critically acclaimed authors at his best ... This stunning and compelling wartime thriller is reminiscent of the writing of John Le Carré and William Boyd’ New Books Magazine ‘Utterly convincing’ Publishers Weekly ‘Kjell Ola Dahl’s novels are superb. If you haven’t read one, you need to – right now’ William Ryan ‘More than gripping’ European Literature Network ‘The perfect example of why Nordic Noir has become such a popular genre’ Reader’s Digest ‘It all comes together, of course, in the kind of masterful, detailed plotting that Dahl is known for ... the power of The Courier is how Dahl has given a complex, human face to such an inhuman tragedy’ Crime Fiction Lover ‘Atmospheric thriller with lots of great twists and loved the scandi wartime story in particular. Gripping will be recommending to readers’ Edgy Books

Description : In 2033 less than 1% of the population survived a devastating pandemic virus. Half of those who lived were immune while half of the survivors mutated into something disturbingly subhuman. Now decades later, the world has rebuilt in many ways but has become something else entirely. Strongholds of human survivors have been set up independently of one another across parts of what is formerly the United States. The rich live in highly guarded Utopias where technology and even an economy has been restored. However, the vast "wasteland" between strongholds is a very dangerous and unforgiving place where the poor are forced to live in areas where gangs, pirates and the mutated roam free. Couriers are key to the survival of the Strongholds and are paid handsomely to deliver valuables between them. Eve Harper is one of the best there is, but when she takes a job to find a missing shipment for an extremely dangerous drug dealer named Gillings, Eve is forced to use every trick she's ever learned in order to survive the riskiest job of her life.

Level 2 trash in a multi-level city that stretches from San Francisco to the Mexican border—a land where corporations make all the rules. A runaway since the age of fourteen, Kris struggled to set up her life, barely scraping by, working hard to make it without anyone's help. But a late day delivery changes everything when she walks in on the murder of one of her clients. Now she's stuck with a mysterious package that everyone wants. It looks like the corporations want Kris gone, and are willing to go to almost any length to make it happen. Hunted, scared, and alone, she retreats to the only place she knows she can hide: the Level 1 streets. Fleeing from people that seem to know her every move, she is rescued by Miller—a member of an underground resistance group—only to be pulled deeper into a world she doesn't understand. Together Kris and Miller barely manage to stay one step ahead of the corporate killers, but it's only a matter of time until Miller's resources and their luck run out....

Description : Reading about history can be boring at times but not when it is incorporated into a novel such as The Courier. The plot of this story is about the attempt to bring to the Americans information about the Nazis secret endeavors to produce an atomic bomb and the attempts of the Nazis to prevent the secret from falling into the hands of the Americans. This story is encompassed by actual historical events in which those events told in this story occurred prior to, during, and after the Second World War in Europe. The locales in this story are in Belgium, Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and the United States; however, the stories in those locales arent necessarily told in that order. The main fictional characters in this book are an American navy captain, a Dutch family, and a German gestapo agent. Aside from several minor fictional characters, the other people that are described in this book were real people. The events described with reference to the real people depicted in this book actually occurred. Think of this book as a promenade into the events of the last century, when one of the greatest wars in history was initiated by Adolf Hitler.

Description : In the long-awaited sequel to “Between Two Seas,” “The Courier” takes up the story with the shadowy, cloaked figure sailing from the island of Melitene, leaving behind a path of misery and destruction. But though the young man has escaped the island, can he escape himself? Fifteen-year-old Eletia, pregnant and new to the faith, is wondering how she will raise her child alone, with the father nowhere to be found. Though the fledgling church on Melitene is thriving under the leadership of Publius and his wife Amoenitas, sinister forces are at work on the island, determined to destroy both freedom and the church. The centurion Julius, a follower of Christ, is charged with conveying Paul to Rome. He longs to leave the army and to settle down to married life. A certain young lady has caught his eye, but duty comes first. Inspired from the book of Acts and within the historical context of the first century church and its surrounding culture, “The Courier” spins a tale of rousing action, romance, intrigue, persecution, heartbreak, redemption, and triumph. How the first century followers of Christ dealt with their hardships informs how we who dwell in the twenty-first ought to live in our time, as we face the same age-old struggle between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness.

Description : "May well give Tom Clancy a run for the money." –St. Louis Post-Dispatch "Breakneck Pacing." --Publishers Weekly on The Operative Ryan Kealey now knows he'll never really put the game behind him. He's seen too much, and the instinct is too deeply hardwired. But the game itself has changed. Between tense interagency "cooperation" that gums the works, and an overreliance on data-crunching and wiz-kid tech, today's US intelligence service has lost a step to its ever-bolder, viciously adaptable global enemies. And thanks to an incredible discovery in the Arctic, those enemies now have a nuke--capable of unleashing unthinkable terror. To hunt down the devastating package before it can be used, Kealey forms an unlikely partnership with the young Farsi-speaking nuclear physicist Rayhan Jafari. But once on the ground, with technology and their by-the-numbers command failing them, they're on their own--trusting only their guts and each other--to conduct the dirty business of combating horrific destruction. "No-holds-barred action and gripping suspense." --Library Journal on The Exile "The ‘best' of Tom Clancy, Michael Connelly, and Robert Ludlum all rolled into a single book." --armchairinterviews.com on The Assassin
