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

Tom Clancy's Enemy Contact
The gripping new thriller in Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan Jr series - the inspiration for the Amazon Prime hit-series Jack Ryan. On a remote island off the coast of Argentina, a team of elite counter-terror commandos prepare to assault a newly-discovered Hezbollah hideout. What they don't expect is to be brutally ambushed themselves - slaughtered with no survivors. And what they don't realise is that, on screens around the world, the enemies of the West are watching. Back in Washington DC, the growing obstruction in the Senate has reached crippling levels, as a crucial treaty to strength NATO in Eastern Europe is inexplicably blocked. Suspecting that key politicians may have been compromised - but aware of the explosive consequences of making such accusations in public - the President dispatches Jack Ryan Jr to Poland to investigate. In Warsaw, Jack partners with beautiful and brilliant Polish agent Liliana Zaleski, and it's not long before they find evidence of a tangled web of corruption. But what Jack and Liliana don't realise is that this conspiracy stretches further than they could ever have imagined, and the danger has already crept terrifyingly close to home... Praise for Tom Clancy: 'Constantly taps the current world situation for its imminent dangers and spins them into an engrossing tale' New York Times 'Heart-stopping action . . . entertaining and eminently topical' Washington Post 'A virtuoso display of page-turning talent' Sunday Express

Locked On: INSPIRATION FOR THE THRILLING AMAZON PRIME SERIES JACK RYAN
Jack Ryan Jr. returns in Locked On, the gripping thriller from Tom Clancy. **** The Ryans - father and son - are fighting on two fronts . . . When a deadly terrorist alliance creates the potential to blackmail any world power into submission, it's got to be stopped before it is too late. That's just the trigger Jack Ryan Jr needs to take his work for shadowy intelligence agency The Campus from the back room to the sharp end: black ops. Meanwhile, his father, Jack Ryan Sr, campaigning for re-election as US President, is up against a privately funded vendetta to discredit him. Caught at the heart of the conspiracy is former Navy SEAL, John Clark. And Ryan Sr soon discovers that being his friends could have deadly consequences. With the breakneck speed and military action scenes that have made him the premier thriller writer of our time, Tom Clancy delivers a novel of high-tech warfare in which the enemy within may be even more devastating than the enemy without. Locked On follows the gripping Dead or Alive and The Teeth of the Tiger as the explosive third novel in Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan Jr. series.

Henrietta 'Harry' Martinez lost her investment banker father, Sal, at a young age. He taught her everything he knew - about taking risks and calculating odds.

A tense and powerful police procedural set in the city of Durham where a murdered preacher may be more monstrous than his own killer. There's the lost. There's the missing. And there's the taken. She asked me once if we had any secrets, and I shook my head. 'No secrets between us,' she said. 'No,' I answered. 'Never ever.' In a Durham hotel at dawn, celebrated preacher Tristan Snow is murdered as he prays. None of the other guests - not even his daughter, his wife, or her sister - saw or heard anything. But then again, they all had a motive for murder. Detective Inspector Erica Martin is confronted by secrets and lies, lost in a case where nothing is what it seems. With no answers, DI Martin is consumed by questions: Is anyone in this family innocent? When the victim might have been a monster - is there such a thing as justice? And does anyone deserve to die?

The thrilling and powerful psychological trilogy, reissued to coincide with a major 3 part TV adaptation, Fallen Angel, starring Charles Dance and Emilia Fox, from the bestelling author of `The American Boy'. `Nobody's perfect,' says a little girl in a walled garden. Certainly not the child stolen from a shabby London street. Or the sexually frustrated suburban vicar. Or least of all, perhaps, the woman who runs out of good times and comes to perch like a cuckoo in the bosom of a perfect family. Fallen Angel uncovers the secret history of a murderer, tracing the full damage and horror of an unforgiving killer over forty years. A chilling account of one family's self-destruction, the story slowly strips away the past, like an archaeological dig into the very nature of evil.

The Essence of the Thing
An exciting new talent, shortlisted for the 1997 Booker Prize, hailed as `a triumph' by The Times, and a poignant observer of human hearts, foibles and follies. `'There isn't a false note in the book, nothing but ravishing grace, wit and tender feelings.' Mail on Sunday Nicola's problems began when she is finally told by her partner, Jonathan, `that we should part...'. She nips out to the off-licence to buy cigarettes and returns to find a stranger in her living room. The stranger looks like Jonathan, talks like Jonathan, yet Nicola did not recognise him as the man he was before. Jonathan had always been predictable, but now Nicola wondered where was the man she loved? How did he become such a mystery all of a sudden? Since when did a solicitor have hidden depths? Friends gather round, always ready to offer encouragement or insult her ex-husband, yet Nicola must face up to the adjustments of Life After Jonathan. It is not the experience of liberation, empowerment and excitement it is meant to be. Madeleine St John's third novel is haunting and hilarious. St John is at her bittersweet best writing of the things women will do to hold on to love and the things men will do to escape it .

With Melissa's appeal date looming, time is running out. And, as Jon gets drawn deeper into a case he'd wanted to forget, he starts to question Melissa's guilt. Is Melissa manipulating Jon or telling him the truth? Is she a murderer, or the victim of a miscarriage of justice? And if Melissa Slade is innocent, what really happened to Ellie and Amber Slade? READERS LOVE THE GUILTY MOTHER: 'Gripping, thought-provoking and scarily believable... just when you think you know where the story is going, another twist comes round the corner' TM Logan, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Holiday 'A mind blowing storyline... AND THAT LAST CHAPTER TOOK MY BREATH AWAY...

Agent Running in the Field
Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Agent Running in the Field written and read by John le Carre. 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. ________________________________ 'No other writer has charted - pitilessly for politicians but thrillingly for readers - the public and secret histories of his times' Guardian '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

Two murders. One Town. And a lifetime of secrets. `Pure reading pleasure' Stephen King The No.1 New York Times bestselling author of the Natchez Burning trilogy returns with an electrifying standalone. A tale of friendship, betrayal, and shattering secrets that threaten to destroy a small Mississippi town. Some things should never be uncovered... When successful journalist Marshall McEwan discovers that his father is terminally ill, he returns to his childhood home in Bienville, Mississippi - a place he vowed to leave behind forever. His family's newspaper is failing; and Jet Turner, the love of his youth, has married into the family of Max Matheson, one of the powerful patriarchs who rule the town through the exclusive Poker Club. Bienville is on the brink of economic salvation, in the form of a billion-dollar Chinese paper mill. But as the deal nears completion, two murders rock the town to its core, threatening far more than the city's economic future. Marshall and Jet soon discover a minefield of explosive secrets beneath the soil of Mississippi. And by the time Marshall grasps the long-buried truth about his own history - and the woman he loves - he would give almost anything not to face it.
