Burma, 1852. Arthur Bowman, a sergeant in the East India Company, is sent on a secret mission during the Second Anglo-Burmese War. But the expedition is foiled - his men are captured and tortured. Throughout their ordeal, a single word becomes Bowman's mantra, a word that will stiffen their powers of endurance in the face of unimaginable suffering: Survival . But for all that, only a handful escape with their lives. Some years later in London, battling his ghosts through a haze of alcohol and opium, Bowman discovers a mutilated corpse in a sewer. The victim appears to have been subjected to the same torments as Bowman endured in the Burmese jungle. And the word Survival has been daubed in blood by the body's side. Persuaded that the culprit is one of the men who shared his captivity, Bowman resolves to hunt him down.

From the Burmese jungle to the slums of London to the conquest of the Wild West, Antonin Varenne takes us on a thrilling journey full of sound and unabated fury, reviving the lapsed tradition of the great writers of boundless adventure.

Dva rata. Prvi, koji buntovnog mladica Pascala Verinija 1957. godine odvodi u Alzir, na Farmu na kojoj se ne uzgaja nista, samo se unistavaju ljudi.I drugi, koji isluzeni policajac i boksac na kraju karijere George Crozat, zvan Beton, u Parizu 2009. vodi protiv svoje sjene, za vlastitu dusu.IzmeA u njih su pola stoljeca, bjegovi i bitke, razocaranja i tajne. I ljudi. Zivi i oni drugi.No koliko god ih vrijeme i prostor razdvajali - pokazuje uzbudljivi hit-triler Antonina Varennea - ratovi i muskarci ne mogu pobjeci jedni od drugih. Cak ni kada to pokusaju, od Alzira do Pariza, kao Pascal i George.Dezerteri su roman o ljudima koji su pokusali ne biti dijelom copora, i koji su za to morali platiti cijenu. Nadahnuta sudbinom autorova oca, ovo je prica o mrznji i osveti, o oprostu i onoj fatalnoj posljednjoj rundi, u kojoj se borimo za vlastitu ljudskost.

It's as if he's being mocked from beyond the grave...When John Nichols arrives to identify the body of an old friend, he is instantly caught up in the wreckage of Alan Mustgrave's life.

Now there's a maverick police lieutenant on the prowl who thinks that Mustgrave was murdered. As the horrific extent of police abuse is revealed, the race is on to find the link between a slew of apparent suicides - and the key to it is buried deep in Nichols' past.
