Sam McCready has served with distinction for seven years as chief of the covert operations desk of Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, a post that is the culmination of a brilliant career as an inventive and intrepid field agent. But times have changed. A high-level policy decision demands that the SIS strip away its old-style operatives and the first to be targeted for retirement is the freewheeling McCready. No one is more eager to be rid of the Deceiver than Timothy Edwards, a ruthless careerist who sees in McCready's demise a stepping-stone for his own ambitions. Offered his choice of two positions-an obscure administrative job or early retirement-McCready has only one further option: the hearing to which Foreign Office regulations entitle him. Sharp-minded, somewhat cynical, McCready is a maverick whose independent style has often driven him beyond the rules. He has not been afraid to press the CIA to the explosion point in an effort to convince them their prize defector is a double agent. Once, he hired a low-level German agent as a courier to deliver a priceless Soviet document to the West-a man he subsequently had to race the KGB to find. He sent an Ulster veteran deep into Libya to subvert a Qaddafi plot to ship a lethal cargo of arms to the IRA and terrorize Britain and the U.S. And most recently there was the notorious instance when he acted far beyond his brief, taking over a remote Caribbean island torn between Fidel Castro and the Colombian drug trade. Presented to a panel of his peers, McCready's exploits may be dazzling evidence of his value-or damning proof that he must be put aside. Presiding over this long-shot effort by a great spy master to save his career will be Timothy Edwards, McCready's most determined foe-and in the balance hangs the future of Britain's secret intelligence operations. Here, in the skillfully constructed history of a seasoned agent, is a provocative study of the changing face of espionage from the Cold War to the Gulf War, rich in the deft detail and unparalleled insight only Frederick Forsyth, master of the novel of intrigue, can deliver.

Had a perfect opportunity not presented itself, perhaps nothing would have happened. But suddenly it is the right time. The right place. And there's no room left for pretense. In a moment, even as Cindy and Carl hate themselves for what they are about to do, all innocence drains out of their lives . . . and two regular people become creatures of passion--and astonishing guilt. Features a new Introduction by Dean Koontz Praise for John D. MacDonald "The great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller."--Stephen King "My favorite novelist of all time."--Dean Koontz "To diggers a thousand years from now, the works of John D. MacDonald would be a treasure on the order of the tomb of Tutankhamen."--Kurt Vonnegut "A master storyteller, a masterful suspense writer . . . John D. MacDonald is a shining example for all of us in the field. Talk about the best."--Mary Higgins Clark

Among the more sensational espionage cases of the Cold War were those of Moscow's three British spies--Kim Philby, Donald Maclean, and Guy Burgess. In this riveting book, S. J. Hamrick draws on documentary evidence concealed for almost half a century in reconstructing the complex series of 1947-1951 events that led British intelligence to identify all three as Soviet agents. Basing his argument primarily on the Venona archive of broken Soviet codes released in 1995-1996 as well as on complementary Moscow and London sources, Hamrick refutes the myth of MI5's identification of Maclean as a Soviet agent in the spring of 1951. British intelligence knew far earlier that Maclean was Moscow's agent and concealed that knowledge in a 1949-1951 counterespionage operation that deceived Philby and Burgess. Hamrick also introduces compelling evidence of a 1949-1950 British disinformation initiative using Philby to mislead Moscow on Anglo-American retaliatory military capability in the event of Soviet aggression in Western Europe. Engagingly written and impressively documented,Deceiving the Deceiversbreaksnew ground in reinterpreting the final espionage years of three infamous spies and in clarifying fifty years of conjecture, confusion, and error in Anglo-American intelligence history.
From Martin Cruz Smith, author of Gorky Park and Havana Bay, comes another audacious novel of exotic locales, intimate intrigues and the mysteries of the human heart: December 6. Set in the crazed, nationalistic Tokyo of late 1941, December 6 explores the coming world war through the other end of history's prism -- a prism held here by an unforgettable rogue and lover, Harry Niles. In many ways, Niles should be as American as apple pie: raised by missionary parents, taught to respect his elders and be an honorable and upright Christian citizen dreaming of the good life on the sun-blessed shores of California. But Niles is also Japanese: reared in the aesthetics of Shinto and educated in the dance halls and backroom poker gatherings of Tokyo's shady underworld to steal, trick and run for his life. As a gaijin, a foreigner -- especially one with a gift for the artful scam -- he draws suspicion and disfavor from Japanese police. This potent mixture of stiff tradition and intrigue -- not to mention his brazen love affair with a Japanese mistress who would rather kill Harry than lose him -- fills Harry's final days in Tokyo with suspense and fear. Who is he really working for? Is he a spy? For America? For the emperor? Now, on the eve of Pearl Harbor, Harry himself must decide where his true allegiances lie. Suspenseful, exciting and replete with the detailed research Martin Cruz Smith brings to all his novels, December 6 is a triumph of imagination, history and storytelling melded into a magnificent whole.
