Europe in Autumn

Europe in Autumn

Author: Dave Hutchinson Format: Paperback Release Date: 14/02/2014

Rudi is a cook in a Krakow restaurant, but when his boss asks Rudi to help a cousin escape from the country he s trapped in, a new career - part spy, part people-smuggler - begins. Following multiple economic crises and a devastating flu pandemic, Europe has fractured into countless tiny nations, duchies, polities and republics. Recruited by the shadowy organisation Les Coureurs des Bois, Rudi is schooled in espionage, but when a training mission to The Line, a sovereign nation consisting of a trans-Europe railway line, goes wrong, he is arrested, beaten and Coureur Central must attempt a rescue. With so many nations to work in, and identities to assume, Rudi is kept busy travelling across Europe. But when he is sent to smuggle someone out of Berlin and finds a severed head inside a locker instead, a conspiracy begins to wind itself around him. With kidnapping, double-crosses and a map that constantly re-draws, Rudi begins to realise that underneath his daily round of plot and counter plot, behind the conflicting territories, another entirely different reality might be pulling the strings...

The Return of the Incredible Exploding Man

Author: Dave Hutchinson Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/09/2019

A thrilling science fiction masterwork of experimental disaster from the bestselling author of the Fractured Europe series The Guardian labelled `Magnificent'. When journalist Alex Dolan is hired by multibillionaire Stanislaw Clayton to write a book about the Sioux Crossing Supercollider, the world's first privately funded high-energy physics facility, this is a dream job. Clayton wants to use the collider to research the nature of gravity - with an eye on using the results in space exploration - and his thirteen-billion-dollar pet project has run into a series of high-profile snags and delays. There's talk of the American government pulling its support of the collider, and Clayton needs someone to put a good spin on it. For Wendy, Dolan's wife, it's less of a dream. She's been uprooted from her home and job in New England and dumped in this shabby little town in the middle of nowhere, and eventually she begins an affair with one of the scientists. Then something goes wrong at the site. Very wrong. After the accident, Dolan finds himself changed, and the only one who can stop the disaster from destroying us all.
