Con men and killers, aliens and zombies, priests and soldiers – just some of the characters that kill and thrill in this compelling collection of gun-toting, double-crossing, back-stabbing, pulse-pounding stories.

Jeffery Deaver investigates the suspicious death of a crime-writer in ‘The Plot’; Karin Slaughter’s grieving widow takes revenge on her dying ex-husband in ‘Cold, Cold Heart’; Stephen Coonts discovers a flying saucer in the depths of the ocean in ‘Savage Planet’ and John Lescroat’s secret field agent finds himself caught up in a complex game of cat-and-mouse in ‘The Gate Conundrum’.

Handpicked by world number one Lee Child, celebrity authors and stars of the future are brought together, writing brand-new stories, especially commissioned for this must-have collection. Whether you’re reading today’s bestseller or tomorrow’s phenomenon, grisly horror or paranoia thriller, historical suspense or supernatural crime, one thing’s for certain. You’ll be thrilled to the core.
