Double action thrillers by the classic adventure writer set in New Zealand and the Pacific.
THE SNOW TIGER
Fifty-four people died in the avalanche that ripped apart a small New Zealand mining town. But the enquiry which follows unleashes more destructive power than the snowfall. As the survivors tell their stories, they reveal a community so divided that all warnings of danger went unheeded. At the centre of the storm is Ian Ballard, whose life depends upon being able to clear his name…
NIGHT OF ERROR
When Mark Trevelyan dies on a journey to a remote Pacific atoll, the verdict that it was natural causes doesn't convince his brother, Mike. The series of violent attacks that follows only adds to his suspicions. Just two clues - a notebook in code and a lump of rock - are enough to trigger off a hazardous expedition, and a violent confrontation far from civilization…
Includes a unique bonus - Desmond Bagley's personal account of the writing of Snow Tiger.
