Duet in Beirut: A Thriller

by Evan Fallenberg Mishka Ben-David

In this riveting thriller by an ex-Mossad agent, an Israeli spy risks his life to save a Hezbollah leader For over a decade, Mishka Ben-David was a profes­sional spy, taking part in secret operations on be­half of the Mossad, Israel's legendary intelligence agency. But after twelve years of service, Ben-David quit the Mossad and became an acclaimed novelist, describing life as a spy from within. A major best­seller in Israel, Duet in Beirut is Ben-David's first book to appear in English. Ronen, an expelled Mossad agent, has disap­peared following a failed assassination attempt against the Hezbollah operative responsible for suicide bombings in Israel. Feared to be on an un­authorized mission, it is up to his former command­er, Gadi, to track Ronen down and stop him from causing harm both to himself and to his country. The physical and intellectual scuffle between the two men becomes one of deeper, moral inquiry. Written with a master novelist's terse convic­tion, Duet in Beirut takes us inside a much-dis­cussed but little understood world. As revealing in its psychological acuity as it is in its portrait of life in the Mossad, Duet in Beirut is an essential thriller of espionage and political intrigue.

Duke City Desperado

by Max Austin

For fans of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul comes Max Austin's latest fast-paced, rollicking Lawbreakers Thriller of criminals and lovers, malcontents and madmen--all within the treacherous city limits of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

A murderous Mafia prince wants to kill him. Two FBI agents want to cuff him. A Goth girl wants to make love to him. And a fierce, sexy Chicana just wants to clean up the mess Dylan made. The trouble started with a drug-addled career criminal named Doc and a bank robbery staged with a garage door opener. Then it all goes off the rails after a little misunderstanding with Dylan's ex-girlfriend and her jealous, gun-toting new beau. When the sun comes up, this sleepy, scrawny desperado is going to show the world what he's made of--all for a one-in-a-million shot at walking out of Duke City alive.Advance praise for Duke City Desperado "Duke City Desperado is more fun than a barrel of heavily medicated monkeys. The crime caper novel is not dead, but in the capable hands of Max Austin it takes on a whole new twist. Two inept criminals equal one good time for the reader."--Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Day Shift and the novels that inspired True Blood"Duke City Desperado is a page-burner of tart dialogue and breakneck pacing. In lesser hands, this twisty plot could have gone off the rails, but it works because author Max Austin knows it's all about simple, human relationships, especially the off-kilter relationship at the core of the story."--Bill Fitzhugh, Lefty Award-winning author of The Exterminators "With Duke City Desperado, Max Austin again proves to be grand master of the laugh-out-loud noir crime novel. Doc Burnett ("Bank robbery ain't a matter of brains.") and his hapless disciple, Dylan, lead readers on a madcap spree that transforms ineptitude into a survival skill."--Charlie Price, Edgar Award-winning author of Dead Girl Moon

by Rebecca Jenkins

Raif Jarrett has returned from battle, and is seeking a quiet life as agent to the Duke of Penrith. So when he is sent to the Durham town of Woolbridge to settle the affairs of one of the Duke's tenants following his sudden death, the dangers of the Yorkshire countryside could not be more unexpected. Jarrett begins to uncover a network of crime and corruption but is thwarted at every turn by the town's powerful and much-feared magistrate, Mr. Justice Raistrick. When a young woman dies in tragic and mysterious circumstances, Jarrett is accused of her murder and has to fight for his life as he desperately seeks to uncover the truth. While he unravels one mystery, Raif Jarrett keeps the lid firmly closed on another. As a stranger in Woolbridge, Jarrett sets tongues wagging, but he refuses to talk about his family, especially his connection to the Duke. And why did he flee to the army - seeking almost certain death - some years previously? Even the elegant and charming Henrietta, in whom Jarrett longs to confide, cannot work out this enigmatic newcomer. Rebecca Jenkins writes with the skill of a natural-born storyteller. The Duke's Agent is full of richly evocative descriptions, audacious plot twists and a cast of unforgettable characters: vivacious black-eyed Sal who falls prey to the sinister Tallyman; sharp-minded old Lady Catharine who is cared for by her poised and proper niece; and of course, the gallant Jarrett himself, who may yet have more in common with his amoral nemesis Raistrick than he would ever care to admit.
