The Mandala of Sherlock Holmes

In 1891, the British public was horrified to learn that Sherlock Holmes had perished in a deadly struggle with the archcriminal Professor Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls. Then, to its amazement, he reappeared two years later, informing a stunned Watson, ‘I traveled for two years in Tibet, therefore, and amused myself by visiting Lhasa.’ Nothing has been known of those missing years until Jamyang Norbu’s discovery, in a rusting tin dispatch box in Darjeeling, of a flat packet carefully wrapped in waxed paper and neatly tied with stout twine. When opened the packet revealed Huree Chunder Mookerjee’s (Kipling’s Bengali spy and scholar) own account of his travels with Sherlock Holmes. Now for the first time, we learn of Holmes’s brush with the Great Game and the world of Kim. We follow him north across the hot and duty plains of India to Simla, summer capital of the British Raj, and over the high passes to the vast emptiness of the Tibetan plateau. In the medieval splendor that is Lhasa, intrigue and black treachery stalk the shadows, and Sherlock Holmes confronts his greatest challenge.

Man-Kzin Wars VI

**JUMP *QUICK*, MONKEY BOY**
After two unpleasant defeats at the hands of the humans from Earth – those rotten no good, *sneaky* monkeys with tools – the Kzin Third Fleet has decided a change of strategy is in order. Not *scream and leap,* but the more subtle and ultimately more satisfying (because it might work!) *feint and pounce.* The man-killing cats from Kzin are baaack.
Only luck or the Outsiders can save us now…
Cover illustration: Stephen Hickman

Man-Kzin Wars II

Born and bred to hunting, they had never encountered a species they couldn’t treat as prey – until they met the canny pseudo-pacifists from Planet Earth. They nearly overwhelmed humanity on first contact, but fast as you can say “Ghengis Khan” or “Alexander the Great” the seemingly harmless monkey boys were all over the pussycats like ugly on an ape, with space fleets and strategic thinking that left the Warrior Race quite dazzled.
But that was then and this is now.
The pain of lost battles has faded and the Kzinti are back, spoiling for a fight, Larry Niven’s Known Space is again aflame with war.

A Man Lay Dead

A Man Lay Dead (Roderick Alleyn Series #1) by Ngaio Marsh
**It’s All Fun and Games Until Someone Gets Murdered.**
At Sir Hubert Handesley’s country house party, five guests have gathered for the uproarious parlor game of “Murder.” Yet no one is laughing when the lights come up on an actual corpse, the good-looking and mysterious Charles Rankin.

Man in the Moon

CAPTAIN VAN SAKS IS A DEAD MAN.
The horror of the Butterfields Massacre rocked the entire world. Now, more then a decade after that fateful event, notorious mass-murderer and terrorist John Van Saks has finally been apprehended and sentenced to await out his execution on Heavenly Haven’s infamous Death Row. The citizens of the world may now rest easy, knowing that the most wanted man in the galaxy has at last been brought to justice.
OR CAN THEY?
In his shocking autobiography, Van Saks paints a tale of lies, greed and corruption within the United Planetary Government. Was the Butterfields Massacre the product of senseless butchery, as they claim, or the necessary action of desperate men? What really happened to the *Spartacus*, during those first, fateful moments of the Interplanetary War? And, most important of all, have the citizens of Earth finally laid to rest the last painful memory of a bloody civil war – or sentenced to death one of their greatest heroes?

Man in the Middle

For newly promoted Army lieutenant colonel Sean Drummond, his latest assignment starts off simply enough: find out if the death of one of D.C.’s most influential defense officials was murder or suicide. Most investigators would call it a cut-and-dried case, but nothing is ever that simple.

Teamed with Bian Tran, the attractive Army Military Police officer investigating the case, Drummond is about to embark on a journey that takes him from the labyrinthine channels of American intelligence to the killing rooms of Iraq. None of it will be more difficult than navigating the shadowy minds and motivations of his enemies and so-called colleagues.

What Drummond uncovers will make him question everything he believes in. Because the more he digs, the more he learns about the key players-American and Middle Eastern-in a war that rages bloodier every day. A war where betrayal is a daily occurrence and makes him ask: Are my loyalties to my superiors or to the American soldiers battling for their lives?

The Man in the High Castle

An official tie-in edition of Philip K. Dick’s dazzling speculative novel to accompany the new TV series, executive produced by Ridley Scott. Philip K. Dick’s acclaimed cult novel gives us a horrifying glimpse of an alternative world – one where the Allies have lost the Second World War. In this nightmare dystopia the Nazis have taken over New York, the Japanese control California and the African continent is virtually wiped out. In a neutral buffer zone in America that divides the world’s new rival superpowers, lives the author of an underground bestseller. His book offers a new vision of reality – an alternative theory of world history in which the Axis powers were defeated – giving hope to the disenchanted. Does ‘reality’ lie with him, or is his world just one among many others? ‘The most brilliant science fiction mind on any planet’ Rolling Stone ‘Dick’s finest book, and one of the very best science fiction novels ever published’ Eric Brown

The Man from St. Petersburg

The Man from St. Petersburg by Ken Follett
**”Ken Follett has done it once more . . . goes down with the ease and impact of a well-prepared martini.” —*New York Times Book Review***
His name was Feliks. He came to London to commit a murder that would change history. A master manipulator, he had many weapons at his command, but against him were ranged the whole of the English police, a brilliant and powerful lord, and the young Winston Churchill himself. These odds would have stopped any man in the world—except the man from St. Petersburg.
**Look out for Ken Follett’s newest book, *A Column of Fire*, available now.**

Man From Mundania

For a bored, young princess of Xanth, there’s nothing more exciting than a Quest. Especially when all you do is sit around Castle Roogna. But when Ivy uses the Heaven Cent, it takes her not to the top of Mount Rushmost, where the winged monsters gather, not to the sea where the merfolk swim–but to Mundania, a world much like our own (that is, boring). It is here that she meets a young college student so dull that he doesn’t even believe in magic, or princesses, or Xanth!
Does he have a lot to learn.
The thrilling climax to the trilogy started in *Vale of the Vole* and continued in *Heaven Cent*.

Man Card

Man Card (Man Hands, #2) by Sarina Bowen, Tanya Eby
**Nothing ventured, nothing banged.**
**Ash**
I still don’t know how it happened. One minute I was arguing with my arrogant competitor—our usual trash-talk over who deserves the larger commission. But somehow I went from throwing down to kneeling down… 
It can never happen again. I don’t even like Braht. He’s too slick. He’s a manipulating mansplaining party boy in preppy clothes.
So why can’t I get him out of my head? 
**Braht**
There are two things I know without question. One: Ash and I are destined for each other. Two: never trust a man with a unibrow.
Ash is my missing my piece. She’s the sweet cream to my gourmet espresso. And nothing gets me going faster than her contempt for me. They don’t call her the Ashkicker for nothing. 
Eventually I’ll win her over…if my past doesn’t ruin everything first.

A Man Called Ove

The word-of-mouth bestseller causing a sensation across Europe, Fredrik Backman’s heartwarming debut is a funny, moving, uplifting tale of love and community that will leave you with a spring in your step. ‘Warm, funny, and almost unbearably moving’ Daily Mail ‘Rescued all those men who constantly mean to read novels but never get round to it’ Spectator Books of the Year At first sight, Ove is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. He thinks himself surrounded by idiots – neighbours who can’t reverse a trailer properly, joggers, shop assistants who talk in code, and the perpetrators of the vicious coup d’etat that ousted him as Chairman of the Residents’ Association. He will persist in making his daily inspection rounds of the local streets. But isn’t it rare, these days, to find such old-fashioned clarity of belief and deed? Such unswerving conviction about what the world should be, and a lifelong dedication to making it just so? In the end, you will see, there is something about Ove that is quite irresistible…
