The Arab Spring has swept through the Middle East and Liz Carlyle and her compatriots in the Thames House's counter-espionage division are racing to investigate arms deals in Yemen. There's a UN embargo forbidding any member country from supplying arms to either side in the uprisings, but Andy Bokus, head of the CIA's London Station, has evidence that the weapons being smuggled into Yemen are not only being sold to both sides, but are coming from a connection in the UK-a highly embarrassing black mark on the government and, if true, full of disastrous consequences. British-American cooperation widens as Liz teams up with her old rival Bruno McKay, MI6's Head of Station in Paris, and Isobel Florian of the French domestic service, the DCRI, to trail and trap the elusive weapons dealer. The evidence points to a former French intelligence officer, Antoine Milraud, who leads them all on a mad chase across Europe until investigators witness him passing something to an elegantly dressed, very mysterious man. When Milraud is caught and informs on his fellow conspirators, Liz finds herself embroiled in a larger, potentially explosive situation that twists all the way back to what she feared most-that the arms are being sold through the UK, and the mysterious man is closer and more capable of brutal violence than she ever could have imagined.

Toomey Spooner hasn't achieved much in his thirty-nine years, and now he seems to recognize a final chance to turn his useless life around. He ascertains a need, some signal accomplishment, something his survivors can chisel into a tombstone. So he resolves not to leave the world as he entered it (fat and bald and blank) but as mayor of Oceana, Kentucky. After a long ghost-haunted night fueled with whisky, and vivid intimations of his own mortality, he realizes that he has reached that pivotal crossroads where everything in his life is at stake. With his pitiful patrimony as his political war chest, this feckless scion of a long line of Oceanans embarks on his race. But politics becomes much trickier and messier than Toomey ever figured. His girlfriend Wilhelmina Rains is sure he has lost his mind. Early on, his cousin Jerry Toller joins in puffing Toomey's campaign but then masterminds a renegade program of his own. Panthrex, a gargantuan multinational corporation that schemes to locate a toxin-spewing medical waste incinerator in Oceana, puts its bulk and bankroll behind Toomey's lifelong opponent, the villianous Dickey Fitzgerald. These and other hateful forces strive to crush him.

However, she is under pressure from her co-heir and cousin, Niall Hanratty, to close the track and sell the valuable property to real estate developers.

There’s nothing like a murder to shake up a quiet neighborhood in this twisting whodunit featuring Britain’s intrepid detective duo, Lambert and Hook. Gurney Close is a small, recently-built cul-de-sac in Gloucestershire. Three nice houses and bungalow overlooking the river Wye. What better way for everyone—three married couples and a divorcee—to get acquainted than a block party? But on the morning after, the charming, utterly ordinary Robin Durkin is found garroted. Apart from his devastated wife, he was surrounded on all sides by perfect strangers. Superintendent John Lambert and Detective Sergeant Bert Hook beg to differ. Each neighbor had ties with the victim. And they’re far from perfect. Including Durkin himself. Unearthing Durkin’s past exposes a dirty little enclave of blackmail, vengeance, and adultery. But who, among these seemingly friendly faces, knew Durkin’s darkest secret—and was driven to murder to keep it hidden?

“America had a secret weapon,” writes Steve Call of the period immediately following September 11, 2001, as planners contemplated the invasion of Afghanistan. This weapon consisted of small teams of Special Forces operatives trained in close air support (CAS) who, in cooperation with the loose federation of Afghan rebels opposed to the Taliban regime, soon began achieving impressive—and unexpected—military victories over Taliban forces and the al-Qaeda terrorists they had sponsored. The astounding success of CAS tactics coupled with ground operations in Afghanistan soon drew the attention of military decision makers and would eventually factor into the planning for another campaign: Operation Iraqi Freedom. But who, exactly, are these air power experts and what is the function of the TACPs (Tactical Air Control Parties) in which they operate? Danger Close provides a fascinating look at a dedicated, courageous, innovative, and often misunderstood and misused group of military professionals. Drawing on the gripping first-hand accounts of their battlefield experiences, Steve Call allows the TACPs to speak for themselves. He accompanies their narratives with informed analysis of the development of CAS strategy, including potentially controversial aspects of the interservice rivalries between the air force and the army which have at times complicated and even obstructed the optimal employment of TACP assets. Danger Close makes clear, however, that the systematic coordination of air power and ground forces played an invaluable supporting role in the initial military victories in both Afghanistan and Iraq. This first-ever examination of the intense, life-and-death world of the close air support specialist will introduce readers to a crucial but little-known aspect of contemporary warfare and add a needed chapter in American military history studies.
