One man. An oil company. A decision that could cost his life. Claymore Straker is trying to forget a violent past. Working as an oil company engineer in the wilds of Yemen, he is hijacked at gunpoint by Islamic terrorists. Clay has a choice: help uncover the cause of a mysterious sickness afflicting the village of Al Urush, close to the company's oil-processing facility, or watch Abdulkader, his driver and close friend, die. As the country descends into civil war and village children start dying, Clay finds himself caught up in a ruthless struggle between opposing armies, controllers of the country's oil wealth, Yemen's shadowy secret service, and rival terrorist factions. As Clay scrambles to keep his friend alive, he meets Rania, a troubled journalist. Together, they try to uncover the truth about Al Urush. But nothing in this ancient, unforgiving place is as it seems. Accused of a murder he did not commit, put on the CIA's most-wanted list, Clay must come to terms with his past and confront the powerful forces that want him dead. A stunning debut eco-thriller, The Abrupt Physics of Dying will not only open your eyes, but keep them glued to the page until the final, stunning denouement is reached. ‘A stormer of a thriller - vividly written, utterly topical, totally gripping' Peter James ‘A page-turning adventure that grabs you from the first page and won't let go' Edward Wilson ‘An exceptional debut, beautifully written, blisteringly authentic, heartstoppingly tense and unusually moving. Definite award material' Paul Johnston ‘A thriller of the highest quality, with the potential to one day stand in the company of such luminaries as Bond and Bourne' Live Many Lives ‘A big, powerful, sophisticated and page-turning thriller – thought-provoking and prescient' Eve Seymour

Fresh from events in Yemen and Cyprus, vigilante justice-seeker Claymore Straker returns to South Africa, seeking absolution for the sins of his past. Over four days, he testifies to Desmond Tutu's newly established Truth and Reconciliation Commission, recounting the shattering events that led to his dishonourable discharge and exile, fifteen years earlier. It was 1980. The height of the Cold War. Clay is a young paratrooper in the South African Army, fighting in Angola against the Communist insurgency that threatens to topple the White Apartheid regime. On a patrol deep inside Angola, Clay, and his best friend, Eben Barstow, find themselves enmeshed in a tangled conspiracy that threatens everything they have been taught to believe about war, and the sacrifices that they, and their brothers in arms, are expected to make. Witness and unwitting accomplice to an act of shocking brutality, Clay changes allegiance and finds himself labelled a deserter and accused of high treason, setting him on a journey into the dark, twisted heart of institutionalised hatred, from which no one will emerge unscathed. Exploring true events from one of the most hateful chapters in South African history, Reconciliation for the Dead is a shocking, explosive and gripping thriller from one finest writers in contemporary crime fiction. 'This is a remarkably well-written, sophisticated novel in which the people and places, as well as frequent scenes of violent action, all come alive on the page...' Jessica Mann, Literary Review ‘A trenchant and engaging thriller that unravels this mysterious land in cool, precise sentences' Stav Sherez, Catholic Herald 'Smart, gripping, superbly crafted oil-industry thriller' Helen Giltrow, Crime Review ‘Reconciliation for the Dead is a gripping, page-turning thriller that is overflowing with substance to go along with Hardisty's atmospheric prose and strong narrative style' Craig Sisterson, Mystery Magazine ‘Laces the thrills and spills with enough moral indignation to give the book heft … excellent' Jake Kerridge, Telegraph 'The writing at times is poetic, at other times filled with tension in a narrative complete with well delineated characters and several shocks. Highly Recommended' Shots Mag ‘A solid, meaty thriller – Hardisty is a fine writer and Straker is a great lead character' Lee Child ‘A stormer of a thriller, vividly written, utterly tropical, totally gripping' Peter James ‘The author's deep knowledge of the settings never slows down the non-stop action, with distant echoes of a more moral-minded Jack Reacher or Jason Bourne' Maxim Jakubowski

It's 1997, and eight months since vigilante justice-seeker Claymore Straker fled South Africa after his explosive testimony to Desmond Tutu's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. In Paris, Rania LaTour, Claymore's former lover, comes home to find that her son and her husband, a celebrated human rights lawyer, have disappeared. On an isolated island off the coast of East Africa, the family that Clay has befriended is murdered as he watches. So begins the fourth instalment in the Claymore Straker series, a breakneck journey through the darkest reaches of the human soul, as Clay and Rain fight to uncover the mystery behind the disappearances and murders, and find those responsible. Relentlessly pursued by those who want them dead, they must work together to uncover the truth, and to find a way to survive in a world gone mad. At times brutal, often lyrical, but always gripping, Absolution is a thriller that will leave you breathless and questioning the very basis of how we live and why we love. ‘A trenchant and engaging thriller that unravels this mysterious land in cool, precise sentences' Stav Sherez, Catholic Herald ‘This is a remarkably well-written, sophisticated novel in which the people and places, as well as frequent scenes of violent action, all come alive on the page...'

This book is primarily about the methodological questions involved in attempts to understand two of the most peculiar phenomena in physics, both occurring at the lowest of temperatures. Superconductivity (the disappearance of electrical resistance) and superfluidity (the total absence of viscosity in liquid helium) are not merely peculiar in their own right. Being the only macroscopic quantum phenomena they also manifest a sudden and dramatic change even in those properties which have been amply used within the classical framework and which were thought to be fully understood after the advent of quantum theory. A few years ago we set ourselves the task of carrying out a methodological study of the "most peculiar" phenomena in physics and trying to understand the process by which an observed (rather than predicted) new phenomenon gets "translated" into a physical problem. We thought the best way of deciding which phenomena to choose was to rely on our intuitive notion about the "degrees of peculiarity" developed, no doubt, during the past ten years of active research in theoretical atomic and elementary particle physics. While the merits of the different candidates were compared, we were amazed to realize that neither the phenomena of the very small nor those of the very large could compete with the phenomena of the very cold. These were truly remarkable phenomena if for no other reason than for the difficulties encountered in merely describing them.

A stark, eye-opening and exquisitely poignant new novel spanning the globe and probing the issues that define our times. As a young man comes to terms with his father’s death, he is forced to face his own demons, and confront the possibility of change... ‘This is a remarkably well-written, sophisticated novel in which the people and places all come alive on the page...’ Literary Review ‘Searing ... at times achieves the level of genuine poetry’ Publishers Weekly Ethan Scofield returns to the place of his birth to bury his father. Hidden in one of the upstairs rooms of the old man’s house he finds a strange manuscript, a collection of stories that seems to cover the whole of his father’s turbulent life. As his own life starts to unravel, Ethan works his way through the manuscript, trying to find answers to the mysteries that have plagued him since he was a child. What happened to his little brother? Why was his mother taken from him? And why, in the end, when there was no one else left, did his own father push him away? Swinging from the coral cays of the Caribbean to the dangerous deserts of Yemen and the wild rivers of Africa, Turbulent Wake is a bewitching, powerful and deeply moving story of love and loss ... of the indelible damage we do to those closest to us and, ultimately, of the power of redemption in a time of change. ‘The quality of Hardisty’s writing and the underlying truth of his plots sets this above many other thrillers’ West Australia ‘Turbulent Wake is moving, it caused me to ache deep inside, oh, and it is also a rather beautiful read too’ LoveReading ‘The writing is sublime! SO different from the Claymore Straker series but just as compelling - a round-the-world journey through a lifetime of regrets. Wow!’ Off-the-Shelf Books ‘If you like literary fiction with heart then you MUST read the stunning Turbulent Wake – powerful, evocative, profound; I savoured every word’ Karen Cole ‘Turbulent Wake is a truly beautiful story ... what a special book this is’ Jen Meds Book Reviews ‘Evocative, compelling, a pull-at-your-heartstrings page turning read! A book that you will absorb into your very soul! Go and get a copy today!’ Crime Book Junkie ‘Turbulent Wake is a beautifully written and atmospheric read that will stay with me for a long time ... The author’s vivid descriptions are wonderful and I felt like I had a fly on the wall view of everything that was happening’ Over the Rainbow Book Blog ‘Powerful, evocative, profound; I savoured every word’ Hair Past a Freckle ‘Compelling and inspiring, it is an adventure, a journey, a exploration of life, a fascinating novel’ Swirl & Thread ‘Heartbreaking, honest, wonderful. This novel needs to be read by many, so they can see what damage they cause’ Steph’s Book Blog

Kim Slade has many admirers, but only one wants her dead. Kim Slade is a clinical psychologist specializing in young women with eating disorders. She also has someone who specializes in her: an anonymous stalker. When Kyle Stannard, a former model with a facial disfigurement, steps suddenly into her life, Kim assumes he’s her stalker. Partially scarred after a childhood accident, Kim believes this is the reason for Stannard’s obsession and reports him to the police. But smart-mouthed Stannard denies the accusation and has a plausible explanation for every twisted move he makes. Can Kim nail him? Or is the person who wants to destroy her closer to home . . . Praise: "Beautiful Losers is a dark and disturbing read that grabs from the off. Eve Seymour doesn't put a step out of place with her writing. I loved it."—Amanda Jennings, author of Sworn Secret, The Judas Scar and In Her Wake "A chilling descent into paranoia and self-obsession. Seymour invites us to look into the mirror, and judge."—Paul Hardisty, author of The Abrupt Physics of Dying and The Evolution of Fear
