Moscow X by David McCluskey

Moscow X by David McCluskey

A daring CIA operation threatens chaos in the Kremlin. But can Langley trust the Russian at its center? CIA operatives Sia and Max enter Russia to recruit Vladimir Putin's moneyman. Sia works for a London firm that conceals the wealth of the super-rich. Max's family business in Mexico - a CIA front since the 1960s - is a farm that breeds high-end racehorses. They pose as a couple, and their targets are Vadim, Putin's private banker, and his wife Anna, who is both a banker and an intelligence officer herself.

Dark Brilliance by Paul Strathern

Dark Brilliance by Paul Strathern

During the Age of Reason, spanning the post-Renaissance to pre-Enlightenment era, Europe experienced notable advancements in art, science, philosophy, politics, and economics. Amid internal conflicts and wars, the 'land of liberty' paradoxically imported slaves from Africa. "Dark Brilliance" delves into this period, examining key figures like Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Newton, Descartes, Spinoza, Louis XIV, and Charles I, offering a compelling exploration of the human toll of advancing progress and modernity.

Quint by Robert Lautner

Quint by Robert Lautner

So much more than a fisherman, Quint is a survivor, a fighter, a man who has left three wives in his wake. From his time as a young sailor facing the horrors of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis, to a deadly night-long showdown with a frenzy of sharks years later, before he finally settles on the island of Amity: this extraordinary act of literary ventriloquism is a vivid and utterly compelling reimagining of the life of a truly iconic character.
