Inferno: (Robert Langdon Book 4)
*NOW A MAJOR FILM STARRING TOM HANKS AND FELICITY JONES* 'Seek and ye shall find.' With these words echoing in his head, eminent Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon awakes in a hospital bed with no recollection of where he is or how he got there. Nor can he explain the origin of the macabre object that is found hidden in his belongings. A threat to his life will propel him and a young doctor, Sienna Brooks, into a breakneck chase across the city of Florence. Only Langdon's knowledge of hidden passageways and ancient secrets that lie behind its historic facade can save them from the clutches of their unknown pursuers. With only a few lines from Dante's dark and epic masterpiece, The Inferno, to guide them, they must decipher a sequence of codes buried deep within some of the most celebrated artefacts of the Renaissance - sculptures, paintings, buildings - to find the answers to a puzzle which may, or may not, help them save the world from a terrifying threat... Set against an extraordinary landscape inspired by one of history's most ominous literary classics, Inferno is Dan Brown's most compelling and thought-provoking novel yet, a breathless race-against-time thriller that will grab you from page one and not let you go until you close the book.

To those who don't really know her, Kate Henderson's life must seem exceedingly ordinary. Civil servant, wife, parent of two teenagers, daughter of an Alzheimer's-stricken mother ... But she's also a senior MI6 officer, and right now she is nursing the political equivalent of a nuclear bomb. Kate's mission to bug an oligarch's super-yacht in Istanbul has yielded the startling intelligence that the British Prime Minister has prostate cancer - and that one of the leading candidates to replace him may be a Russian agent of influence. Is this 'intelligence' reliable - or is it an attempt to create chaos within the British hierarchy? Kate's bosses have their doubts. But when the PM suddenly announces his resignation, the hunt for the spy begins in earnest. It's a nightmarish task, made infinitely worse by the revelation that there may be another mole - codename Viper - at the heart of the Establishment. As the tension mounts, an operation that looked as if it might cost Kate her sanity appears poised to do much, much more than that ...

ONE OF THE BEST THRILLERS TO COME ALONG IN YEARS. -MICHAEL CONNELLY To save America from a catastrophic betrayal, an FBI agent must stop a Russian mole in the White House... No one is more surprised than FBI Agent Peter Sutherland when he's tapped to work in the White House Situation Room. When Peter was a boy, his father was suspected of selling secrets to the Russians-a breach that cost him his career, his reputation, and eventually his life. Now Peter's job is monitoring an emergency line for a call that has not-and might never-come. Until tonight. At 1:05 a.m. the phone rings. A terrified young woman named Rose tells Peter that two people have just been murdered and that the killer might still be in the house with her. One of the victims gave her this phone number with urgent instructions: Tell them OSPREY was right. It's happening... The call thrusts Peter into the heart of a conspiracy years in the making, involving a Russian mole at the highest levels of the U.S. government. Anyone in the White House could be the traitor. Anyone could be corrupted. To save the nation, Peter must take the rules into his own hands, question everything, and trust no one.

A Spy in Exile: A Thriller
From the author of the internationally bestselling supremely effective, cunningly crafted (The Providence Journal) thriller Traitor, a cerebral, suspenseful, and different kind of spy novel (Kirkus Reviews) filled with high-stakes intrigue in Israel's top intelligence agency. After Ya'ara Stein is forced out of her job at the Mossad--the secret intelligence service of Israel--the Prime Minister offers her a classified job. Known for her aptitude, beauty, and deadliness, Stein is asked to set up a secret unit that will act independently, answerable only to the Prime Minister. This deadly team, filled with bright young men and women recruited and trained by Stein, quickly faces threats both old and new. Descendants of the lethal militant Red Army Faction have returned to terrorize Europe and fears of a radical Islam splinter group force the unit to distinguish between facts and smoke screens. As Stein's cadets struggle to crush these threats, they soon discover how easily the hunter can become the hunted. A dazzling, tension-filled novel that sheds light on the world hidden just below the surface of our everyday lives, this multidimensional...authentic (San Francisco Review of Books) thriller offers a peek behind the curtain of today's deadliest conflicts. With breathless pacing and shocking twists and turns, it proves that Jonathan de Shalit has learned well from the likes of Mr. le Carre (The Wall Street Journal).

Agent Running in the Field
THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER 'No other writer has charted - pitilessly for politicians but thrillingly for readers - the public and secret histories of his times' Guardian ________________________________ Nat, a 47 year-old veteran of Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, believes his years as an agent runner are over. He is back in London with his wife, the long-suffering Prue. But with the growing threat from Moscow Centre, the office has one more job for him. Nat is to take over The Haven, a defunct substation of London General with a rag-tag band of spies. The only bright light on the team is young Florence, who has her eye on Russia Department and a Ukrainian oligarch with a finger in the Russia pie. Nat is not only a spy, he is a passionate badminton player. His regular Monday evening opponent is half his age: the introspective and solitary Ed. Ed hates Brexit, hates Trump and hates his job at some soulless media agency. And it is Ed, of all unlikely people, who will take Prue, Florence and Nat himself down the path of political anger that will ensnare them all. Agent Running in the Field is a chilling portrait of our time, now heartbreaking, now darkly humorous, told to us with unflagging tension by the greatest chronicler of our age. _______________________________ 'John le Carre is as recognisable a writer as Dickens or Austen' Financial Times 'No writer has ever been better at turning the act of two people talking politely to each other across a desk into a blood sport' Telegraph

The Only Woman in the Room
The New York Times and USA Today Bestseller Hedy Lamarr possessed a stunning beauty. She also possessed a stunning mind. Could the world handle both? Her beauty almost certainly saved her from the rising Nazi party and led to marriage with an Austrian arms dealer. Underestimated in everything else, she overheard the Third Reich's plans while at her husband's side, understanding more than anyone would guess. She devised a plan to flee in disguise from their castle, and the whirlwind escape landed her in Hollywood. She became Hedy Lamarr, screen star. But she kept a secret more shocking than her heritage or her marriage: she was a scientist. And she knew a few secrets about the enemy. She had an idea that might help the country fight the Nazis...if anyone would listen to her. A powerful novel based on the incredible true story of the glamour icon and scientist whose groundbreaking invention revolutionised modern communication, The Only Woman in the Room is a masterpiece.

A Small Town in Germany
West Germany in the 1960s is a simmering cauldron of radical protests. Amid the turmoil Leo Harting, a Second Secretary in the British Embassy, has gone missing - along with more than forty Confidential embassy files. Alan Turner of the Foreign Office must travel to Bonn to recover them. As he gets closer to the truth of Harting's disappearance, he will discover that the face of Cold War Europe - and the attentions of the British Ministry itself - are far uglier that he could possibly have imagined. Le Carre's searing Cold War novel creates a world where the lines between right and wrong, good and evil, are horribly blurred.

Sandra Eden's War
Sandra Eden's War tells the story of an SOE (Special Operations Executive) agent who is parachuted into France a few weeks before D-Day, in 1944, to co-ordinate French Resistance operations in disrupting German troop movements in and around Normandy. This is necessary in order to assist the Allied soldiers soon to be landing on the Normandy beaches. The tale is one of bravery and resourcefulness, and gives an insight into the actions of the SOE, which was set up by Winston Churchill in 1940 to 'set Europe ablaze'. There were a number of female SOE agents who served with honour and distinction during World War II. The author was inspired to write Sandra's story after reading a number of true stories regarding SOE agents during the war, including The White Mouse, an autobiography of Nancy Wake who served in the SOE with great merit. Nancy was one of the most highly decorated women of World War II. She died in 2011.
