New Internationalist books and publications


The novel No Killing Sky is an eco- thriller for our times. Published by New Internationalist, the novel clearly has a critical message about the imminent dangers and possibilities brought about by the unmitigated ravages of climate change. Non-fiction writers such as Naomi Klein, Clive Hamilton, and Arundhati Roy give us analyses of the interrelationships between politics, environmental justice, climate science and a myriad of social concerns; McCourt has taken up the serious issue of climate change and delivered a compelling story. - Customer review by Jacqueline Widin.

When young Irish/American climber, Liam Doyle, sets out to locate the body of his father, high in the death zone of the ‘savage mountain’ K2, he is confronted by a series of inexplicable events.

Deeply troubled, he enlists the help of two friends, an ex-special forces buddy and a Washington editor. Their investigations take them into the heart of a conspiracy with the potential to wreak atmospheric havoc on a planetary scale.

A critical US election race, excalating violence across Asia and increasingly hostile media create a toxic climate in which they must risk their lives to expose the truth.

No Killing Sky is the ultimate global thriller for our times –12 countries, from the Himalayas to the Arctic, Washington to Kazakhstan – and a race against time to prevent a catastrophe that could soon claim the lives of more than a billion people.
