On the eve of a vital CIA assignment, an agent's hesitation leads him to the brink of disasterHis grandfather was… a lawman too. That's how Charles O'Farrell rationalizes his work. He keeps a picture of his ancestor by his bed, a faded sepia portrait of a short, plain-looking man made remarkable only by the long-barreled Colt strapped to his hip. His grandfather killed to make the frontier safe--O'Farrell has the faded newspaper clippings to prove it. In the service of America, O'Farrell kills too. But his killings never make the front page. A trained CIA assassin, O'Farrell lives like a machine, operating according to a perfect routine because routine keeps him sharp. Routine keeps killers from getting killed. But now, as he readies his next hit, a terrible twist will disrupt his once meticulous process. Doubt has begun to creep into Charles O'Farrell's mind, and in a business where even the smallest hesitation can spell certain death, doubt is very dangerous indeed. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Brian Freemantle including rare photos from the author's personal collection.

Is another Hitler rising to power? Tom Jaeger’s war with the Nazis began the day World War II ended .… . . During those last days in the bunker, Hitler and Bormann created a plan that would perpetuate the cause of Nazism long after they were dead. A small band of highly trained agents were to be planted all over the world, someday to come together and bring final glory to the Fatherland. Rudolph Kessler was one of those sleeper agents. He was letter-perfect in English, incredibly smart, and highly resourceful.

And only one man stood in his way: Tom Jaeger. Only Tom understood the lethal, far-ranging depths of this daring plan. And he couldn’t get anyone to listen—except for one woman . . .

Further revelations follow. The deceased was a drus addict—until she saw the light via a relisious sect called the Meek Ones, whose suru is internationally shady, enismatic Father Valentine. Since the CIA is already investisatins Valentine, the Secret Service is assisned the case. Enter James Bond, who immediately makes several startling discoveries. Another Meek One is discovered in possession of the same mysterious credit card. Father Valentine himself is suspected of diverting cult funds to buy arms for radical sroups all over Europe. Most damning of all, he has links to the mesa-czar of slobal vice and terrorism, Vladimir Scorpius. From then on, the action and danser soar to an all-time hish. From darins escapes and diabolically clever techno- logical duplicities, throush red herrinss, ambushes, kidnappinss, and torture, Bond races—with the beautiful American Harriet Horner at his side—to the ultimate confrontation: a spectacular battle royal with the deadliest evil senius to ever threaten the future of Ensland and the world. With Scorpius both John Gardner and James Bond are at the top of their form. Here, indeed, is exhilarating adventure in the true Ian Fleming tradition.

As the son of a formidable secret intelligence director, Driscoll/Bellman is used to all kinds of existential ducking and weaving. The new Bellman is sent to England to find Sir Lewis Alfot, a missing former British intelligence chief. He hasn't even left the London airport, though, before assassins target him. They come courtesy of Leo Calvin, a terrorist Bellman's dealt with in the past--and Calvin has just kidnapped Alfot as bait. Can Bellman stop Calvin in his tracks, and is Alfot, for his part, as respectable and law-abiding as he seems?

An electric thriller where spies go to battle, and the free world is at stakeIn the final installment in William… DeAndrea's Clifford Driscoll series, master spy Driscoll is "going tame"--that is, recovering from a near-death accident and enjoying domestic peace. Driscoll, now known as Allan Trotter, hasn't killed anyone in more than a year. He still works for the Agency--a super-secret intelligence unit of the US government known only to the president and its founding congressman--but he's too full of pins and plates to be a field agent anymore. To top it off, he's so smitten with beautiful media mogul Regina Hudson that he's contemplating settling down. But Trotter's new life is rudely interrupted when he learns that Soviet spies are bent on taking charge of the upcoming US presidential election. Their instrument is an influential senator, Hank Van Horn, a womanizing bad seed who-- despite an upstanding reputation--once murdered one of his own staffers. And as if the election plot wasn't perilous enough, Van Horn's relentless son, Mark, soon gets involved in a very bloody way.
