Bone Fire: A Novel

Ishawooa, Wyoming, is far from bucolic nowadays. The sheriff, Crane Carlson, needs no reminder of this but gets one anyway when he finds a kid not yet twenty murdered in a meth lab. His other troubles include a wife who’s going off the rails with bourbon and pot, and his own symptoms of the disease that killed his grandfather.

Einar Gilkyson, taking stock at eighty, counts among his dead a lifelong friend, a wife and—far too young—their only child; and his long-absent sister has lately returned home from Chicago after watching her soul mate die. His granddaughter, Griff, has dropped out of college to look after him, though Einar would rather she continue with her studies and her boyfriend, Paul. Completing this extended family are Barnum McEban and his ward, Kenneth, a ten-year-old whose mother—Paul’s sister—is off marketing spiritual enlightenment.

What these characters have to contend with on a daily basis is bracing enough, involving car accidents, runaway children, strokes and Lou Gehrig’s disease, not to mention the motorcycle rallies and rodeos that flood the tiny local jail. But as their lives become even more strained, hardship foments exceptional compassion and generosity, and those caught in their own sorrow alleviate the same in others, changing themselves as they do so. In this gripping story, along with harsh truths and difficult consolation come moments of hilarity and surprise and beauty. No one writes more compellingly about the modern West than Mark Spragg, and in Bone Fire he is at the very height of his powers.

A pulse-pounding thrill ride, where a teen girl must participate in a breathtaking race to save her brother's life--and her own. Time is slipping away. Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can't determine what's wrong, her parents decide to move to the middle of nowhere for the fresh air. She's lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother is dying--and she's helpless to change anything. Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It's an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother's illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there's no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.

Flood is a 2002 disaster thriller novel by Richard Doyle. Set in present day London, the novel depicts a disastrous flood and fire of London, caused by a storm, and the consequential accident at an oil refinery, and failure of the Thames Barrier .

In 1953 the East coast of England was stuck by one of the worst storms of the century. In response to this, the Thames Flood Barrier was opened in 1984, to protect London from the danger. However global warming has resulted in raising sea levels, higher waves and more frequent extreme weather. Londoners have become complacent, thinking that the flood barrier will protect them. The events of December 19 will prove them wrong.

The Prime Minister is out of the country, leaving deputy Prime Minister. and Home Secretary Venita Maitland in charge. As the danger signs mount up, officials at all levels of the government are reluctant to take the necessary precautions, relying on margins of error, earlier missed predictions and fearing the consequences of an unnecessary evacuation.

With the water levels rising, an accident at a refinery releases vast quantities of fuels. The Thames Barrier is raised, but it proves inadequate to prevent all flooding. As the flood levels rise and the fire grows larger, more and more of London is threatened. A burning ship crashes into the Flood Barrier, and wreaks one of the flood gates, unleashing a tidal wave into central London.

Firefighters and other first responders from all around the country, supplanted by German, French and American military bravely fight against the disaster, but they can only save a fraction of those threatened.

Eventually the savior of London proves to be the same thing that threatened it, with rain from the storm extinguishing the fire.

Due to the vignette style, many characters are unnamed, and only appear in single vignettes. However, many characters are recurring throughout the book.

Flood of Fire

Flood of Fire Review

“A new age is dawning, you know --- the age of Free Trade --- and it’s men like you and I, self-made Free-Traders, who will be its heroes. If there’s been an exciting time for a venturesome white youth to seek his destiny in the East, then this is it.”

Acclaimed Indian writer Amitav Ghosh completes his magnum opus Ibis Trilogy with the recent publication of the final novel, FLOOD OF FIRE, a remarkable saga that depicts key historical events leading up to the first Opium War (1839-1842) --- from China’s attempts to block British India’s import of the drug to the British expeditionary forces’ planned military attacks of South China’s ports.

"Intricately plotted and tonally rich, FLOOD OF FIRE is an exceptional historical novel that invites close reading. Ghosh’s masterwork is a solemn meditation on colonial history, power, duty and sacrifice."

Bustling with activity, this sprawling novel illustrates grand swathes of physical territories --- from Calcutta and Singapore to the meandering tributaries of the Ganga and Pearl Rivers, from strategic maneuvers in naval battlefields to bedroom boudoirs. All of Ghosh’s protagonists are fully developed and wide-ranging, including the proud, sympathetic Kesri Singh, a 35-year-old veteran sepoy of the East India Company who worries about faltering staff morale; the renowned British merchant Benjamin Burnham (who passionately advocates for Free Trade) and his wife, Catherine Burnham, one of Calcutta’s leading hostesses and a prominent supporter of a number of “improving causes” (On the topic of poor whites in India, she remarks, “It is incumbent upon us to do what we can to prevent these unfortunate creatures from becoming a blight on the prestige of the ruling race”); Zachary Reid, the amorous and ambitious 21-year-old sailor craftsman from Baltimore; and the brave widow Shireen Modi, who boldly leaves India for Canton to recover her husband’s lost funds and locate his illegitimate son.

Throughout his novel, Ghosh sheds light on the impact of opium --- the substance that poured into the market “like a monsoon flood” and had a “magical power to turn human frailty into gold” --- on world history, countries and peoples. Following the drug’s production in the Indian town of Ghazipur, the fever-pitch auctions in Calcutta, the lives of individual British opium traders and Chinese-Indian addicts, Ghosh reminds us that opium is a “monopoly of British government. Opium pays for everything --- hotel, church, governor’s mansion, all are built on opium.”

Intricately plotted and tonally rich, FLOOD OF FIRE is an exceptional historical novel that invites close reading. Ghosh’s masterwork is a solemn meditation on colonial history, power, duty and sacrifice. Pointing to the potent legacies of death and destruction left in the wake of war, Ghosh asks, “What was the meaning of it? What was it for?”

Flood of Fire: A Novel (The Ibis Trilogy)

The stunningly vibrant final novel in the bestselling Ibis Trilogy. It is 1839 and China has embargoed the trade of opium, yet too much is at stake in the lucrative business and the British Foreign Secretary has ordered the colonial government in India to assemble an expeditionary force for an attack to reinstate the trade.

Among those consigned is Kesri Singh, a soldier in the army of the East India Company. He makes his way eastward on the Hind. a transport ship that will carry him from Bengal to Hong Kong.
Along the way, many characters from the Ibis Trilogy come aboard, including Zachary Reid, a young American speculator in opium futures, and Shireen, the widow of an opium merchant whose mysterious death in China has compelled her to seek out his lost son.

The Hind docks in Hong Kong just as war breaks out and opium "pours into the market like monsoon flood." From Bombay to Calcutta, from naval engagements to the decks of a hospital ship, among embezzlement, profiteering, and espionage, Amitav Ghosh charts a breathless course through the culminating moment of the British opium trade and vexed colonial history.
With all the verve of the first two novels in the trilogy, Flood of Fire completes Ghosh's unprecedented reenvisioning of the nineteenth-century war on drugs. With remarkable historic vision and a vibrant cast of characters, Ghosh brings the Opium Wars to bear on the contemporary moment with the storytelling that has charmed readers around the world.

Flood of Fire

_ Reading _ : "The thrilling climax to the Ibis trilogy that began with the phenomenal Booker-shortlisted Sea of Poppies. It is 1839 and tension has been rapidly mounting between China and British India following the crackdown on opium smuggling by Beijing. With no resolution in sight, the colonial government declares war. One of the vessels requisitioned for the attack, the Hind, travels eastwards from Bengal to China, sailing into the midst of the First Opium War. The turbulent voyage brings together a diverse group of travellers, each with their own agenda to pursue. Among them is Kesri Singh, a sepoy in the East India Company who leads a company of Indian sepoys; Zachary Reid, an impoverished young sailor searching for his lost love, and Shireen Modi, a determined widow en route to China to reclaim her opium-trader husband's wealth and reputation. Flood of Fire follows a varied cast of characters from India to China, through the outbreak of the First Opium War and China's devastating defeat, to Britain's seizure of Hong Kong. Flood of Fire is a thrillingly realised and richly populated novel, imbued with a wealth of historical detail, suffused with the magic of place and plotted with verve. It is a beautiful novel in its own right, and a compelling conclusion to an epic and sweeping story - it is nothing short of a masterpiece."
