The #1 New York Times bestseller and the true story behind the film: A rugby team resorts to the unthinkable after a plane crash in the Andes. Spirits were high when the Fairchild F-227 took off from Mendoza, Argentina, and headed for Santiago, Chile. On board were forty-five people, including an amateur rugby team from Uruguay and their friends and family. The skies were clear that Friday, October 13, 1972, and at 3:30 p.m., the Fairchild’s pilot reported their altitude at 15,000 feet. But one minute later, the Santiago control tower lost all contact with the aircraft. For eight days, Chileans, Uruguayans, and Argentinians searched for it, but snowfall in the Andes had been heavy, and the odds of locating any wreckage were slim. Ten weeks later, a Chilean peasant in a remote valley noticed two haggard men desperately gesticulating to him from across a river. He threw them a pen and paper, and the note they tossed back read: “I come from a plane that fell in the mountains . . .” Sixteen of the original forty-five passengers on the F-227 survived its horrific crash. In the remote glacial wilderness, they camped in the plane’s fuselage, where they faced freezing temperatures, life-threatening injuries, an avalanche, and imminent starvation. As their meager food supplies ran out, and after they heard on a patched-together radio that the search parties had been called off, it seemed like all hope was lost. To save their own lives, these men and women not only had to keep their faith, they had to make an impossible decision: Should they eat the flesh of their dead friends? A remarkable story of endurance and determination, friendship and the human spirit, Alive is the dramatic bestselling account of one of the most harrowing quests for survival in modern times.

A Boston art historian in Russia becomes a pawn for a deadly KGB agent gone rogue in this thriller from a #1 New York Times–bestselling author. Shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, three strangers converge on the newly unified city and become entangled in conspiracy and murder. Francesca McDermott, an elegant young art historian from Boston, arrives to curate an exhibition of Russian revolutionary art censored and suppressed under Stalin. The mysterious Dr. Andrei Serotkin, an arrogant but seductive colleague from Moscow, comes to assist her. And Nikolai Gerasimov is sent by the newly constituted FSB to track down Andrei Orlov, a rogue agent of the former KGB. Then, in a villa in Germany, two émigré smugglers wanted in the theft of priceless Russian iconography are found dead—victims of a gruesome torture-murder. But they are only the first keys to unlocking the secrets of a conspiracy that has trapped Francesca as a pawn, drawing her deeper into a maze of betrayal and espionage of chaotic global impact. A Patriot in Berlin “builds irresistibly . . . [and is] a thoughtful thriller that once you have finished you actually want to read over again” from the Somerset Maugham Award–winning author of Alive (The New York Times).
