Greetings to our readers,

We are excited to tell you that our new novel, THE LOST ISLAND, is published tomorrow, August 5. We feel this may well be our best Gideon Crew novel to date. In this story Gideon really comes into his own. But you, our readers, are always the final judge!

Important: Unfortunately, midnight August 5 is the latest you can order a personalized first-edition copy autographed by both of us, and have us write a personal message in your book. (As you are checking out, write your message in the "instructions" box.) We’re sorry we didn’t bring this to your attention earlier. You can still get a double-signed book after that date, but it won’t be personalized.

While we try not to blow our own horn in these newsletters, we hope you will forgive us for excerpting the Publisher’s Weekly review of THE LOST ISLAND:

"In Preston and Child’s sparkling third Gideon Crew Novel, Eli Glinn of Effective Engineering Solutions orders Crew to steal the Book of Kells, "The finest illuminated book in existence," from New York’s Morgan Library… When the success of this nearly impossible mission reveals a treasure map with links to ancient Greek history, Glinn sends Gideon and Amy, another operative in his employ, on a jaunt to the Caribbean. There Gideon and Amy, who briefly poses as his wife, face dangers from treasure hunters, nature, and an erosion of trust in each other. Gideon refreshingly doesn’t fit the superhero mold, and the enigmatic Amy is more than his equal in daring and intelligence. Fans of H. Ridger Haggard and Edgar Rice Burroughs will find a lot to like."

Thank you again for being a loyal reader, and we hope you like THE LOST ISLAND.

Warm regards,

Doug & Linc
