BLOW is the unlikely story of George Jung's roller coaster ride from middle-class high school football hero to the heart of Pable Escobar's Medellin cartel-- the largest importer of the United States cocaine supply in the 1980s. Jung's early business of flying marijuana into the United States from the mountains of Mexico took a dramatic turn when he met Carlos Lehder, a young Colombian car thief with connections to the then newly born cocaine operation in his native land. Together they created anew model for selling cocaine, turning a drug used primarily by the entertainment elite into a massive and unimaginably lucrative enterprise-- one whose earnings, if legal, would have ranked the cocaine business as the sixth largest private enterprise in the Fortune 500. The ride came to a screeching halt when DEA agents and Florida police busted Jung with three hundred kilos of coke, effectively unraveling his fortune. But George wasn't about to go down alone. He planned to bring down with him one of the biggest cartel figures ever caught. With a riveting insider account of the lurid world of international drug smuggling and a super-charged drama of one man's meteoric rise and desperate fall, Bruce Porter chronicles Jung's life using unprecedented eyewitness sources in this critically acclaimed true crime classic.
A fictionalized account of the author's childhood experiences moving from the United States to London, England, and attending a boarding school.

The dead man left several clues in the study designed to reveal his killer's identity to his son, but ironically the son died soon after the father and never set eyes on the father's legacy. So begins the fourth of seven cold cases written up in a bestselling book by Parisian journalist Roger Raffin that Enzo rashly boasted he could solve. This case takes Enzo to a tiny island off the coast of Brittany in France, where he must confront the hostility of locals who have no desire to see the infamous murder back in the headlines.?An attractive widow, a man charged but acquitted of the murder (but still the viable suspect), a crime scene frozen in time, a dangerous hell hole by the cliffs, and a collection of impenetrable messages, make this one of Enzo's most difficult cases.
The true story of how US intelligence organizations employed Nazi war criminals in clandestine warfare and propaganda against the USSR, anticolonial revolutionaries, and progressive movements worldwide that were claimed to be Soviet pawns; includes a new, previously suppressed introduction by the author on the CIA's declassification of Nazi-related recordsEven before the final shots of World War II were fired, another war began--a cold war that pitted the United States against its former ally, the Soviet Union. As the Soviets consolidated power in Eastern Europe, the CIA scrambled to gain the upper hand against new enemies worldwide. To this end, senior officials at the CIA, National Security Council, and other elements of the emerging US national security state turned to thousands of former Nazis, Waffen Secret Service, and Nazi collaborators for propaganda, psychological warfare, and military operations. Many new recruits were clearly responsible for the deaths of countless innocents as part of Adolph Hitler's "Final Solution," yet were whitewashed and claimed to be valuable intelligence assets. Unrepentant mass murderers were secretly accepted into the American fold, their crimes forgotten and forgiven with the willing complicity of the US government.Blowback is the first thorough, scholarly study of the US government's extensive recruitment of Nazis and fascist collaborators right after the war. Although others have approached the topic since, Simpson's book remains the essential starting point. The author demonstrates how this secret policy of collaboration only served to intensify the Cold War and has had lasting detrimental effects on the American government and society that endure to this day.
Introducing Blowback, an exhilarating new espionage thriller by former CIA ops officer Valerie Plame and thriller writer Sarah Lovett. Covert CIA ops officer Vanessa Pierson is finally close to capturing the world's most dangerous international nuclear arms dealer: Bhoot, alias the ghost. One of her assets has information about Bhoot's upcoming visit to a secret underground nuclear weapons facility in Iran--in only a few days. But just as Pierson's informant is about to give her the location, they're ambushed by an expert sniper. Pierson narrowly escapes. Her asset: dead. Desperate to capture Bhoot and the sniper before they inflict more damage, Pierson enlists all of the Agency's resources to find them. But with each day, the pressure of the manhunt mounts, causing her to push her forbidden romance with a fellow ops officer to its limit when she asks him to do the impossible. Despite the risks, she refuses to halt her pursuit of the terrorists, and she puts her cover and her career--and her life--at risk. With rapid-cut shifts from European capitals to Washington to the Near East, and with insider detail that only a former spy could provide, Blowback marks the explosive beginning of the hunt for Bhoot, the villain whom Vanessa Pierson devotes her life to capturing, dead or alive.

Call me naïve, but when I was a girl-watching James Bond and devouring Harriet the Spy-all I wanted was to grow up to be a spy. Unlike most kids, I didn't lose my secret-agent aspirations. So as a bright-eyed, idealistic college grad, I sent my resume to the CIA. Getting in was a story in itself. I peed in more cups than you could imagine, and was nearly condemned as a sexual deviant by the staff psychologist. My roommates were getting freaked out by government investigators lurking around, asking questions about my past. Finally, the CIA was training me to crash cars into barriers at 60 mph. Jump out of airplanes with cargo attached to my body. Survive interrogation, travel in alias, lose a tail. One thing they didn't teach us was how to date a guy while lying to him about what you do for a living. That I had to figure out for myself. Then I was posted overseas. And that's when the real fun began.

Using her firsthand expertise of international espionage, Mathews offers another brilliantly realized suspense novel so intense, so authentic, it lethally blurs the line between fact and fiction. In Blown, Caroline Carmichael returns in a white-hot tale of terror on the streets of Washington, where one woman must gamble her life to save her country. As thousands of runners line up for the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C., no one suspects that in a matter of hours the event will become a race between life and death. CIA analyst Caroline Carmichael is about to tender her resignation, when the first reports of a terrorist attack pour in--and she instantly recognizes the hand of an enemy she's battled for years: the 30 April Organization. The neo-Nazi group is alive and well and operating in the United States, assassinating top officials and abducting a vulnerable child from the front ranks of a state funeral. When Caroline's husband, Eric, is arrested in Germany as a 30 April operative, Caroline has no choice but to take to the streets--and target the evil herself. Eric has worked as a "legend" for years--a false identity so perfect, the CIA believes he's dead--and gone deep undercover within the terrorist group Caroline is determined to destroy. Now his cover's been blown, and Eric's intimate knowledge of 30 April's plans makes him a target for both sides: the killers he's betrayed, and the American government he's sworn to protect. Torn between a desire to save her husband and her duty to save her country, Caroline is drawn back into a treacherous labyrinth where trusting others is as good as suicide. For the enemy this time wears a familiar face: that of an American patriot, waving his flag alongside his gun. To stem disaster, Caroline has only one choice: to betray everyone in which she believes--or everyone she loves. For an agent without cover--an agent who's blown--is worse than betrayed: she's as good as dead.
America is on the brink of crisis. Unless we can curb our dangerous appetite for foreign oil, petroleum-rich countries and speculators will bring our economy to its knees. . . long before CO2 emissions will devastate our ecosystem. The President has answered the call with the Dakota District Initiative, a top secret research team hidden deep in the Badlands of North Dakota. The Initiative is developing a way to produce clean energy from coal. But powerful enemies will stop at nothing to sabotage this revolutionary technology. A cadre of oil hedge fund managers hires a crew of mercenary fanatics to attack the Initiative's experimental power station. Despite the bloody assault, the research continues as war-hero sheriff Nate Osborne and brash journalist Ashley Borden search for the attackers. The stakes couldn't be higher: Unless the Initiative succeeds we could be faced with gasoline at twenty dollars per gallon or more, putting an impossible strain on an already fragile economy. If the project fails, we will continue to poison the very air we breathe. Either way, the Badlands will run red with blood.
In the early years of the twenty-first century, forced by a wave of terrorism to find an alternative to air travel, the United States government is building the world's longest tunnel to accommodate a high-speed bullet train. The crucial eastern leg of the tunnel is nearing completion in the dead of winter, under Lake Michigan. The men working below the icy waters don't know they are using phony geological data. Their bosses do. The bosses have gotten away with it before, at the cost of many lives. And, to maintain the contract for the most impressive construction project in history, they are willing to risk fines again. Dane Nordlund, chief engineer for the project, doesn't know about the phony data. He's also unaware that the brother of a victim of an earlier tunnel collapse is on his crew and bent on revenge. If that weren't enough, he's got an eager beaver assistant conniving to get his job, a bitter ex-wife conspiring for his downfall, and a political opportunist, an inspector from Washington, wreaking havoc with his ability to get the job completed on deadline. The hole-through turns into a political and media circus right before the maniac strikes. A huge explosion rocks the tunnel, killing hundreds and trapping Nordlund and seven others underground. The killer is down there with them, still determined to get even. Yard by yard, against insuperable odds, Nordlund leads the survivors through an underground maze. While Nordlund stays one step ahead of the avenger, he must place all hope for his escape in the hands of his assistant, a man who can only profit from Nordlund's loss. Slowly bleeding to death but refusing to die until he extracts total retribution, the madman stalks Nordlund's band, picking them off one by one. As poisonous gas rises behind them, Nordlund leads his charges to a rendezvous under the deteriorating escape hatch that might let them out...if his assistant has calculated right. And if they don't drown first. From its first shattering scene beneath New York's East River to the explosive finale under the freezing waters of Lake Michigan, Bfawout! is breakneck entertainment at its most compelling. Read it and you'll never take a tunnel for granted again.
A long weekend in the Poconos is interrupted by murder, and FBI agents Savich and Sherlock must look thirty years into the past to stop the killing.
