SAS was one of the biggest series of spy thriller on the french market with 200 books and 120 millions sold.Between 2014 and 2016, Vintage Books published posthumously five Malko Linge novels

Just before his death the NYT made an article about him : https://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/03/magazine/gerard-de-villiers-the-spy-novelist-who-knows-too-much.html#commentsContainer

THE MADMEN OF BENGHAZI, available for the first time in the U.S., is a gripping, racy, ripped-from-the-headlines espionage thriller set in volatile post-Qaddafi Libya.

Gérard de Villiers (1929–2013) spent his five-decade career cultivating connections in the world of international intelligence, which allowed him to anticipate geopolitical events before they occurred—and to masterfully blend fiction with an insider’s knowledge of international affairs. Published from 1964 until his death in 2013, his bestselling SAS series of 200 spy novels, starring Malko Linge, was long considered France’s answer to Ian Fleming, with Malko as his James Bond.

Its hero, Malko Linge, an Austrian aristocrat, spends his time freelancing for the CIA in order to support his playboy lifestyle.

When terrorists try to shoot down a plane carrying Libyan prince Ibrahim al-Senussi, it is clear that someone wants him dead. But the CIA has its own plot for the prince: Now that Qaddafi has been overthrown, al-Senussi is their best bet to set up a constitutional monarchy and stem the Islamist tide in Libya. The CIA, which needs Malko as much as he needs them, sends the Austrian aristocrat to Cairo to learn more about al-Senussi’s plans by seducing his companion, a ravishing British model. This mission is enormously appealing, but also proves enormously dangerous, as the same madman of God who is trying to kill al-Senussi also takes aim at Malko.

‘Donald is a writer not only at the top of his game, but of the game’ Giles Kristian, author of the Raven series
‘Donald delivers a masterclass’ Theodore Brun, author of A Burning Sea
‘A gory, gleeful treat’ The Times

The greatest warriors are forged in the flames

Two pagan fighters

771AD, Northern Europe. Bjarki Bloodhand and Tor Hildarsdottir are journeying south into Saxony. Their destination is the Irminsul, the One Tree that links the Nine Worlds of the Middle-Realm. In this most holy place, they hope to learn how to summon their animal spirits so they can enter the ranks of the legendary berserkir: the elite frenzied fighters of the North.

One Christian king

Karolus, newly crowned King of the Franks, has a thorn in his side: the warlike Saxon tribes on his northern borders who shun the teachings of the Church, blasphemously continuing to worship their pagan gods.

An epic battle for the soul of the North

The West’s greatest warlord vows to stamp out his neighbours’ superstitions and bring the light of the True Faith to the Northmen – at the point of a sword. It will fall to Bjarki, Tor and the men and women of Saxony to resist him in a struggle for the fate of all Europe.

Praise for The Last Berserker

‘Donald has taken the legendary berserkers, those frothing-at-the-mouth shield-biters, and made them human, which once again proves that Donald is a writer not only at the top of his game, but of the game … It is a wonderful, rich and violent brew. I welcome Angus Donald to the shield wall of Viking fiction like a thirsty man welcomes a mead-brother to the feast … A tale worthy of the skalds’ Giles Kristian, author of the Raven series

‘With The Last Berserker, Donald has given us the first cut of some serious Dark Age beef. By turns heart-racing, intriguing, and touching, this is not a book for the faint-hearted – I can’t wait for more’ Theodore Brun, author of A Burning Sea

The Last Berserker strikes with the thundering power of Thor’s hammer… rich with the earthy depth, historical detail, intrigue, violence and adventure that we expect from Donald. But it is Bjarki and Tor that make The Last Berserker stand out… Donald’s masterful creations will live on in the imagination long after the final page’ Matthew Harffy, author of the Bernicia Chronicles

‘A wonderful, blood-soaked tale of redemption and revenge, set amidst the eighth century clash of civilisations between Pagan Vikings and Christian Franks, by a master of the genre’ Saul David, author of Zulu Hart

‘Loved this tale of a berserker facing up against the tidal wave of Charlemagne’s expansion. Great characters, brilliantly paced and explosive, gritty battle-scenes. Highly recommended’ John Gwynne, author of Malice

The Wormkind Chronicles will be delivered in episodic form, with a new episode dropping every few months. The first novel The Broken Kingdom will contain four or five episodes, each of about 20,000 words, or 70 pages. The Wormkind Chronicles is expected to be a trilogy.

He was the mob’s deadliest weapon…until he became their most lethal enemy!

Meet John Frenzi, a tough-as-nails Mafia enforcer in Los Angeles, a man without conscience, a human weapon. He knew one thing and one thing only: The cruel art of violence. His nickname among the Mafia was the Killfrenzy, for his very gruesome abilities. He was trained to do the Family’s bidding, murdering anyone who stood in their way. But that was before a brash young capo targeted his innocent neighbor.

Her blood is on Don Giovanni’s hands, and when the aging patriarch of the most powerful crime family on the West Coast refuses to do the right thing, John Frenzi turns his very deadly skills against the underworld Family who had given him everything.

They thought they could handle the rage of one man. They were wrong. The Killfrenzy is about to be unleashed on the very men who created him. And the Mafia will never be the same.

Inspired by the men’s adventure novels of yesteryear, Frenzi is a wild ride through a hip, blood-soaked Los Angeles underworld circa 1970. Hard-hitting, startlingly violent, and loaded with action-packed chapter after chapter, R.J. Calder has crafted a fast-reading adventure that will make your head spin.
