"Wonderfully imagined and wonderfully written . . . Superb!" -- Lee Child Part Wolf Hall, part The Name of the Rose, a riveting new literary thriller set in Restoration London, with a cast of real historic figures, set against the actual historic events and intrigues of the returned king and his court … The City of London, 1678. New Year’s Day. Twelve years have passed since the Great Fire ripped through the City. Eighteen since the fall of Oliver Cromwell and the restoration of a King. London is gripped by hysteria, and rumors of Catholic plots and sinister foreign assassins abound. When the body of a young boy drained of his blood is discovered on the snowy bank of the Fleet River, Robert Hooke, the Curator of Experiments at the just-formed Royal Society for Improving Natural Knowledge, and his assistant Harry Hunt, are called in to explain such a ghastly finding—and whether it's part of a plot against the king. They soon learn it is not the first bloodless boy to have been discovered. Meanwhile, that same morning Henry Oldenburg, the Secretary of the Royal Society, blows his brains out, and a disgraced Earl is released from the Tower of London, bent on revenge against the King, Charles II. Wary of the political hornet’s nest they are walking into – and using scientific evidence rather than paranoia in their pursuit of truth – Hooke and Hunt must discover why the boy was murdered, and why his blood was taken. The Bloodless Boy is an absorbing literary thriller that introduces two new indelible heroes to historical crime fiction. It is also a powerfully atmospheric recreation of the darkest corners of Restoration London, where the Court and the underworld seem to merge, even as the light of scientific inquiry is starting to emerge …

Harry Hunt of the Royal Society is called to investigate, for the dead man is Sir Jeffrey Hudson, the Queen's dwarf, a fierce warrior for the Royalist cause, who once killed a man in a duel. But no one knew of Hudson's death...except the murderer. For years, an imposter has lived in Hudson's place, working as a spy. Now this man, too, has disappeared, taking with him knowledge of a plot to kill the Queen. Harry's search takes him to Paris, ruled by Louis XIV and the sinister Chief of Police, La Reynie. There, he becomes ensnared in a city obsessed with poisoning. With the help of a cross-dressing aristocratic swordswoman, who has schemes of her own, Harry embarks on a desperate race to return to London. He must save the Queen and all who gather for her Catholic Consult. He must save them from the Clockwork Assassins. The CLOCKWORK ASSASSINS is Harry Hunt's second adventure, the sequel to The BLOODLESS BOY.

When US Marshal Frannie Mullen gets one of her best friends shot during a routine apprehension, her career is over. Still reeling from the loss, Frannie is trying to sort out her feelings for Wyatt, the reformed outlaw who loves her, and to support her newly-sober sister, Mae, as she struggles with the fallout of their unstable, violent childhood. Their father Patrick Mullen is a thug, a vicious enforcer for a corrupt Philadelphia union, and when he escapes from prison, bodies of ex-rivals and witnesses begin piling up. Now Frannie is suspected as an accomplice in his escape and targeted by shadowy killers from the Philadelphia underworld. Unsure who to trust, drawing on the skills she's learned as a Marshal and her training as a boxer, Frannie is forced to fight to protect her shattered sister and Patrick's pregnant girlfriend from the most dangerous criminal she's ever faced—her own father. The Poor Boy's Game is the most propulsive, riveting novel yet from crime fiction master Dennis Tafoya.

Novels five through eight of the Gabriel Allon series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva. Prince of Fire Gabriel Allon is back in Venice, when a terrible explosion in Rome leads to a disturbing personal revelation: the existence of a dossier in terrorist hands that strips away his secrets and lays bare his history… The Messenger Gabriel Allon is about to face the greatest challenge of his life. An al-Qaeda suspect is killed in London, and photographs are found on his computer—photographs that lead Israeli intelligence to suspect that al-Qaeda is planning an attack aimed straight at the heart of the Vatican. The Secret Servant A terrorist plot in London leads Israeli spy Gabriel Allon on a desperate search for a kidnapped woman, in a race against time that will compromise Allon’s own conscience—and life... Moscow Rules The death of a journalist leads Israeli spy Gabriel Allon to Russia, where he finds that, in terms of spycraft, even he has something to learn if he wants to prevent a former KGB colonel from delivering Russia's most sophisticated weapons to al-Qaeda. Praise for the #1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva and the Gabriel Allon series “Those in the know are calling him the new John Le Carré. Those who are reading him can't put him down."—Chicago Sun-Times "The enigmatic Gabriel Allon remains one of the most intriguing heroes of any thriller series."—The Philadelphia Inquirer "A writer who brings new life to the international thriller."—Newsday "Allon is Israel’s Jack Bauer…Thrill factor:*****."—USA Today "Nobody handles this kind of intrigue as well Silva. He gives Gabriel and the rest of his team the kind of depth seen only in spy novels by Robert Ludlum and Tom Clancy."—Richmond Times Dispatch "A terrific thriller…one of the best-drawn fictional assassins since The Day of the Jackal."—The San Francisco Examiner “Silva builds tension with breathtaking double and triple turns of plot.”—People
