Stormbreaker

Read by Nathaniel ParkerApprox. 4.5 hours3 cassettesThey told him his uncle died in an accident. He wasn’t wearing his seatbelt, they said. But when fourteen year old Alex finds his uncle’s windshield riddled with bullet holes, he knows it was no accident. What he doesn’t know yet is that his uncle was killed while on a top secret mission. But he is about to, and once he does there is no turning back. Finding himself in the middle of terrorists, Alex must outsmart the people who want him dead. The government has given him the technology, but only he can provide the courage. Should he fail, every child in England will be murdered in cold blood. This first in a thrilling new series by British writer Anthony Horowitz will have pulses racing from start to finish.

Point Blank

They look like they’re supposed to. They talk like they’re supposed to. But they sure don’t act like they’re supposed to. Sixteen boys in a remote boarding school, children of some of the wealthiest and most powerful families in the world. Juvenile delinquents, all: drugs, shoplifting, vandalism. Yet suddenly they’re perfect, well behaved and studious. Identical in every way or almost every way. Something is wrong. Very wrong. And only fourteen year old secret agent Alex Rider can save these boys from themselves. Should he fail, one man’s sinister plan to conquer the world will become reality. Full of heart pounding adventure, technological wizardry, tongue in cheek humor, and a James Bond like spirit, this sequel to Stormbreaker is a thrill ride you won’t want to let up.

Skeleton Key

Alex Rider has been through a lot for his fourteen years. He’s been shot at by international terrorists, chased down a mountainside, and stood face to face with evil. Twice, young Alex has saved the world. And twice, he has almost been killed doing it. But now Alex faces something even more dangerous. The desperation of a man who has lost everything he cared for: his country and his only son. A man who just happens to have a nuclear weapon and a serious grudge against the free world. To see his beloved Russia once again be a dominant power, he will stop at nothing. Unless Alex can stop him first. The phenomenon that is the Alex Rider series returns with pulse quickening action as, for the first time, Britain’s MI6 and America’s CIA unite forces. Be glad Alex is on our side.

Eagle Strike

R When Dismas Hardy agrees to clean up the caseload of recently disappeared attorney Charlie Bowen, he thinks it will be easy. But one of the cases is far from small timethe sensational clash between National Guard reservist Evan Scholler and an ex Navy SEAL and private contractor named Ron Nolan. Two rapid fire events in Iraq conspired to bring the men into fatal conflict: Nolans relationship with Evans girlfriend, Tara, a beautiful school teacher back home in the states, followed by a deadly incident in which Nolans apparent mistake results in the death of an innocent Iraqi family as well as seven men in Evans platoon. As the murky relationship between the US government and its private contractors plays out in the personal drama of these two men, and the consequences become a desperate matter of life and death, Dismas Hardy begins to uncover a terrible and perilous truth that takes him far beyond the case and into the realm of assassination and treason.

unless Alex can stop them.

Snakehead

What goes up must come down, and when we last saw Alex Rider, he was as up as can be in outer space. When he crash lands off the coast of Australia, the Australian Secret Service recruits him to infiltrate one of the ruthless gangs operating across South East Asia. Known as Snakeheads, the gangs smuggle drugs, weapons, and worst of all, people. Alex accepts the assignment, in part for the chance to work with his godfather and learn more about his parents.

Often imitated, never equaled, the series that triggered a reading phenomenon is back, exhilarating and addictive as ever.

Devil May Care (By:Sebastian Faulks)

200 copies sold out in 2 hoursOnly 100 copies left, available only in USA at RandomHouse. comIt is with the greatest delight that we present the Bentley Special Series edition of Devil May Care. The ultimate in luxury editions this beautifully crafted book represents a unique alliance between two of the world’s most iconic brands: James Bond and Bentley Motors. Cars and James Bond have always had a special association our favourite spy is suitably famed for his fast cars and even faster driving. Whether it s in pursuit of an arch nemesis or a beautiful woman, Bond is always at home behind the wheel of a luxury sports car. Contrary to popular belief however, Bond s preference has historically been firmly with Bentley Motors. In the course of the fourteen original Bond novels, Fleming wrote of Bond owning three Bentleys the last of which was a Bentley R type, which Bond lovingly referred to as the locomotive . These were Bond s personal cars the cars that Fleming thought most epitomized the discernment and style of his hero. In Devil May Care, written by Sebastian Faulks to celebrate the centenary of Ian Fleming s birth, it is fitting that Bond is found once again in the driving seat of his favorite motor the Bentley. To mark this momentous occasion, the publishers approached the famous Crewe firm to produce a Bentley edition of the book. This beautifully crafted luxury edition is the result. Bringing together the design and materials that epitomise the quality and craftsmanship of Bentley Motors, this is the perfect celebration of the centenary of Ian Fleming s birth. Only 300 copies of the Special Series edition will be produced worldwide, with only 100 available in the US, costing $1500 each. A HISTORY OF BOND AND BENTLEY In Casino Royale we first hear of Bond s fascination with Bentleys he drives: One of the last of the 4 ? litre Bentleys with the supercharger by Amherst Villiers, he had bought it almost new in 1933 and had kept it in careful storage through the war. It was still serviced every year and, in London, a former Bentley mechanic, who worked in a garage near Bond s Chelsea flat, tended it with jealous care. Bond drove it hard and well and with an almost sensual pleasure. It was a battleship grey convertible coup , which really did convert, and it was capable of touring at ninety with thirty miles an hour in reserve. Bond writes off his first Bentley in Moonraker after which he takes delivery of a Mark VI. The 1953 Mark VI, had an open touring body. It was battleship grey like the old 4 ? litre that had gone to its grave in a Maidstone garage, and the dark blue leather upholstery gave a luxurious hiss as he climbed awkwardly in beside the test driver. The Mark VI however is quickly surpassed by Bond s third and final Bentley the Continental, which Fleming describes as the most selfish car in England. This is the car that Bond drives in Thunderball and subsequently in On Her Majesty s Secret Service. It was a MK V I Continental Bentley that some rich idiot had married to a telegraph pole on the Great West Road. Bond had bought the bits for 1,500 and Rolls had straightened the bend in the chassis and fitted new clockwork the Mark VI engine with 9.5 compression. This is the car that most seems to have captured Fleming s imagination he researched the specification carefully, going into meticulous detail as to the car s modifications. Writing to his friend Whitney Straight he states: In connection with James Bond’s new car, I would like it to be a cross between a Continental Bentley and a Ford Thunderbird i.e. a smallish cockpit with a long bonnet line and a large boot behind. He is thought to have based the car on a custom modified Bentley Continental designed by French coachbuilder Henri Chapron http://www. continental. org. uk/index. htm?http://www. continental. org. uk/bond. htm. Fleming goes on to describe the novel in greater detail in the novels: Bond had gone to Mulliners with 3,000 which was half his total capital, and they had sawn off the old cramped sports saloon body and had fitted a trim, rather square convertible two seater affair, power operated, with only two large armed bucket seats in black leather. The rest of the blunt end was all knife edged rather ugly, trunk Bond clearly shares Fleming s passion for this particular car, so much so that he names it the locomotive It s his personal car the Aston Martin was the pool car of the service and as such his real automotive passion stays with the Bentley. The car was painted in rough, not gloss, battleship grey and the upholstery was black morocco She went like a bird and a bomb and Bond loved her more than all the women at present in his life rolled, if that were feasible, together. And so in Devil May Care Sebastian Faulks once more treats us to Bond happily behind the wheel of the locomotive you ll have to wait until May 28th to read more. THE DESIGN STORYThe publishers approached Bentley soon after they signed Sebastian Faulks to write the new James Bond novel. We had, from the very beginning, wanted to produce a special edition and Bentley was the first and immediate choice. And so they went to Crewe, to Bentley HQ, to meet their design team. Dirk van Braekel is Chief Designer at Bentley. He studied at the Royal College of Art, one of the first schools to specialize in car design. He then joined Volkswagen unit Audi in 1984, and was drafted in to head up Bentley s design team when the VW group acquired the company in 1998. There, he created the groundbreaking design for the Bentley Continental GT, launched in 2004 and one of the most successful sports coupes of our times. Under Dirk s guidance, the Bentley Design team have produced the phenomenal design for the Special Series edition. What struck me with the Bond story is that throughout the novels there has always been the connection to Bentley which unfortunately has never really surfaced in the films, so unless you are an absolute Bond fan, hardly anybody knows this. Now we were offered an opportunity to get that link a bit more in the open. Fresh recruit to the team, Kate Whatmore, was instrumental in conceiving the wonderful combination of design elements which reflect the craftsmanship of Bentley and the Bentley of Bond s era. As well as the time in which the story is set, the treatment for the design that Kate came up with captures in a subtle way the values that Bentley brand stands for: the leatherwork and bright metal parts; even the layout and the typefaces find their inspiration from the older car handbooks together with some references to what confidential and personal documents looked like in those days. The end result speaks for itself. THE SPECIAL SERIES EDITIONThe Special Series edition takes it s inspiration from the original hard cover cloth casing used by Jonathan Cape publishers when they first published Fleming s books back in the 1950s and 60s. This is combined with the slick and stylish designs of the 1950 s and 60 s Bentley owner s manuals and handbooks. The result is a beautiful and striking edition which immediately captures the suave sophistication of the James Bond novels. Bound in Bodoniana style cases finished in Burnt Oak leather sourced from the Pasubia tannery, which provides the hides for Bentley. The leather casing is then stitched in the iconic Bentley diamond pattern, as found on the radiator grille and the upholstery of modern Bentleys. The stitching is hand applied by the same craftsmen who produce the Vatican s leather bound volumes. The Bentley Flying B the radiator cap of the Bentleys of Bond s time adorns the front cover and spine. The inside of the casing is trimmed in deep red Hotspur leather with the striking fluting used on 50 s and 60 s Bentley interior upholstery. Inside the front cover, each edition is individually identified by its unique edition number on a black lacquer machined steel engine plate as found on every Bentley engine. The book is printed by Graphicom in Italy who have used a Munken Print Cream 150gsm paper stock the highest grade of paper appropriate for such an edition. The typography reflects exactly the styling of the Bentley owner s manua
ls. Each book block is then die cut with a car shaped silhouette. Then the pi ce de resistance into this die cut hole is inserted a cast and polished 1:43 scale model of the modified R type which Fleming is thought to have had Bond driving the Locomotive. The model has been crafted by hand by Bentley s current design team, and reflects all the details Fleming includes in his novels. Compulsion Gallery have produced just 300 of these models each one is individually numbered to match each Special Series book. Finally each book is protected by a custom made plexiglass slip case, which itself will be sealed in protective and numbered wrapping to ensure that this exclusive luxury edition reaches you in perfect condition.
