But any dreams Mac has of a cosy office job are shattered when he's dispatched to Singapore to oversee a covert mission. And when things go disastrously wrong, he not only has to defend his reputation in Australia but also stay out of jail in Vietnam. From the leafy suburbs of Singapore to the mean streets of Saigon, from the political infighting of Canberra to the old killing fields of Northern Cambodia, Mac has to use all his cunning - and a few unusual alliances - to get to the bottom of a conspiracy that could throw the world into a thermo-nuclear showdown. When nothing is what it seems, and death is only one mistake away, Mac finds himself both hunter and hunted as he pursues a truth that could save millions of lives.

Reclusive collector Cutter Merlin is seldom seen in Key West - lately, not at all. Officer Liam Beckett visits Merlin's curious house and discovers the gentleman in his study. In his death grip: a volume of occult lore and a reliquary. His eyes are wide with fright, his mouth a horrified rictus where spiders now dwell. Kelsey Donovan returns to the old house to catalogue her estranged grandfather's collection of artefacts and antiquities, vowing to see his treasures divested properly. But she cannot ignore the sense that she's being watched, the reports of malevolent black figures, the pervasive smell of death. Is the Merlin house haunted, even cursed? Liam knows well that some ghost stories are true and he swears to protect Kelsey. But there are forces at work for whom one more life is a pittance to pay for their deepest desire....

Out on the Rim

By Ross Thomas

In good condition - ex library - has markings from use - due to differing weights in books, postage maybe adjusted at checkout. Would you be wary if someone gave you the assignment of delivering five million dollars to a Philippine terrorist - never mind from whom or why? Booth Stallings, a terrorism expert just fired from his job at a bashful organization that never admitted its mount in the Washington merry-go-round, is wary. So wary that he cuts in con man "Otherguy" Overby, who in turn involves Artie Wu, pretender to the throne of China, and his partner, Quincy Durant. Obviously, good patriots don't want to hand over all that money to bad guys. Better they keep it for themselves. Which inevitably raises the question: Who among them will end up with the money?

The Fabric of Sin

By Phil Rickman

In good condition - ex library - has markings from use - due to differing weights in books, postage maybe adjusted at checkout. 'We must have offended somebody or something at Garway...Next time we shall know better.' Garway church was built by medieval Knights Templar, whose stone coffin lids can be seen in its altar steps and window sills. After seven centuries, the Welsh Border village is still shadowed by their mysteries. A few fields away, the Master House, abandoned and falling into ruin, has been sold to the Duchy of Cornwall, the private estate which provides an income for the Prince of Wales. But renovation plans stall when a specialist builder refuses to work there, insisting it's a place that doesn't want to be restored. Directed by the Bishop of Hereford to investigate, deliverance consultant Merrily Watkins is unconvinced, wary of being used, suspicious of the people she's supposed to be helping. But violent death changes everything, and Merrily uncovers hidden layers of sin and retribution in a secretive landscape where local inns have astrological names and a feud between two local families has its roots in medieval history. And what did happen in Garway to intimidate even the great Edwardian ghost-story writer M. R. James? Warned off when her inquiries stumble into forbidden areas, uncovering modern-day Masonic links, Merrily has no option but to conceal a major crime as she goes back to Garway to find fibres of fear stitched into history and insidiously twisted in the corridors - and the cloisters - of power.

Matthew Mercer and Harris Sandler are playing a game almost no one knows about - not their friends, not their coworkers, and certainly not their powerful bosses, who are some of the most influential senators and congressmen on Capitol Hill.

But behind this game is a secret so explosive it will shake Washington to its core. And when one player turns up dead, a dedicated young staffer will find himself relying on a tough, idealistic seventeen-year-old Senate page to help keep him alive...as he plays the Zero Game to its heart-pounding end.

The Tears of Autumn

By Charles McCarry

In good condition - ex library - has markings from use - due to differing weights in books, postage maybe adjusted at checkout. Spun with unsettling plausibility from the events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and featuring secret agent Paul Christopher , it's a tour de force of action and enigma. Christopher, at the height of his powers, believes he knows who arranged the assassination, and why. His theory is so destructive of the legend of the dead president, though, and so dangerous to the survival of foreign policy that he is ordered to desist from investigating. But he is a man who lives by, and for, the truth - and his internal compunctions force him to the heart of the matter. Christopher resigns from the Agency and embarks on a tour of investigation that takes him from Paris to Rome, Zurich, the Congo, and Saigon. Threatened by Kennedy's assassins and by his own government, Christopher follows the scent of his suspicion - one breath behind the truth, one step ahead of discovery and death. The Tears of Autumn is an incisive study of power and a brilliant commentary on the force of illusion, the grip of superstition, and the overwhelming strength of blood and family in the affairs of nations. It's also a superb political thriller, taut and unsentimental, whose brilliantly original and persuasive theory about who killed Kennedy will, once again, get minds racing.

After the shocking developments in Dry Ice, Colorado psychologist Alan Gregory is struggling to deal with his newly adopted son and repair his shaky, though generally improving, marriage. But then Alan's ex-wife, Merideth, reappears, seeking help she feels only Alan can give. Suddenly Alan is pulled into a mystery that reaches back years to a camping trip at the Grand Canyon involving Merideth's fiancé and five friends whose lives were changed forever when a young woman mysteriously vanished from the Canyon floor. Enlisting the help of friend and detective Sam Purdy, Alan finds himself pitted against new demons and unseen enemies as he tries to uncover the connection between the unexplained disappearance at the Grand Canyon and Merideth's missing surrogate. The clock is ticking, and as Alan's and Sam's investigation take them from New York City to Los Angeles to the cavernous reaches of the Canyon itself, Alan unearths a series of secrets and deceptions that someone wishes to keep buried at all costs. With his characteristically intelligent and relentlessly paced writing, White offers a thriller that not only builds upon recent revelations but stands alone as a compulsively readable introduction to one of fiction's most compelling heroes.

Humphrey Sweet murdered three schoolgirls before he was caught and locked away in the secure psychiatric unit of Kempton Hospital.

Dr Maurice Simnal is sent to assess Sweet. Together with his colleague Ruth Day, he sets about compiling a report. It's only when Sweet starts to hint at other murders, murders that don't match the profile of his previous crimes, that Simnal begins to suspect that Sweet may be something he hasn't encountered before. A trail of victims reveals a terrible network of manipulation and death - one that moves ever closer to home. Is Sweet an entirely new breed of madman? Or is he dangerously sane?

Milan, 1497: Father Agostino Leyre, a Dominican Inquisitor and expert on the interpretations of secret messages, is ordered to supervise Leonardo da Vinci's final touches to The Last Supper. He was sent by Pope Alexander VI who is determined to execute da Vinci after realizing that the painting contains clues to a baffling - and blasphemous - message, which he is driven to decode. The Holy Grail and the Eucharistic Bread are missing, there is no meat on the table, and the apostles, shockingly, are portraits of well-known heretics - and none of them are depicted with halos. And why has the artist painted himself into the scene with his back turned towards Jesus? Full of dark surprises, The Secret Supper depicts a deadly game of wits between the brilliant Leonardo da Vinci and the man intent on bringing him to trail for heresy. Revealing the truth behind da Vinci's best-known Christian piece, it will keep you guessing until the final page. After finishing this novel, you'll never see The Last Supper in the same way again.
