|From The Publisher*||#1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER • Lisbeth Salander returns, in a trailblazing new installment to the bestselling Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series • Also known as the Millennium series|
"Lisbeth Salander is back-and maybe better than ever. Karin Smirnoff's take is both respectful of the past and ready for the future-altogether remarkable." -Lee Child, author of No Plan B
Change is coming to Sweden's far north: its untapped natural resources are sparking a gold rush with the criminal underworld leading the charge. But it's not the prospect of riches that brings Lisbeth Salander to the small town of Gasskas. She has been named guardian to her niece Svala, whose mother has disappeared. Two things soon become clear: Svala is a remarkably gifted teenager-and she's being watched.
Mikael Blomkvist is also heading north. He has seen better days. Millennium magazine is in its final print issue, and relations with his daughter are strained. Worse still, there are troubling rumors surrounding the man she's about to marry. When the truth behind the whispers explodes into violence, Salander emerges as Blomkvist's last hope.
A pulse-pounding thriller, The Girl in the Eagle's Talons sees Salander and Blomkvist navigating a world of conspiracy and betrayal, old enemies and new friends, ice-bound wilderness and the global corporations that threaten to tear it apart.
|Review Quote*||Praise for The Girl in the Eagle's Talons:|
"Lisbeth Salander is back-and maybe better than ever. Karin Smirnoff's take is both respectful of the past and ready for the future-altogether remarkable."
-Lee Child, author of the Jack Reacher series
"Propulsive . . . Smirnoff adds new maturity and depth to the two leads, offers several jaw-dropping plot twists . . . Fans will find it a worthy addition to the series."
"An absolute incident-packed thrill-ride from start to finish. Karin Smirnoff has taken on the legacy of a legend and done the series justice."
-Jo Spain, author of The Perfect Lie
"Smirnoff's writing is wonderfully vivid. If books were birds, this would be a raptor diving towards its prey with brutal agility."
-Anna Bailey, author of Where the Truth Lies
"Fresh, fearless, faithful and original. Karin Smirnoff takes on a heady challenge and makes a stylish, exciting and truly worthy statement. One of the great crime series of our time could not be in safer, more capable hands. I loved it."
-Chris Whitaker, author of We Begin at the End
"For my two kronor, Smirnoff's is the best of the Salander septet. A smart, crime trope-free tale with boundary-pushing prose (in Sarah Death's sprightly translation) that is still compulsively page-turning. There are genuine shock reveals and arguably the most horrific, and nuanced, villain of the series."
