Summary

A young woman on holiday to Mykonos, the most famous of Greece’s Aegean Cycladic islands, simply disappears off the face of the earth. And no one notices. That is, until a body turns up on a pile of bones under the floor of a remote mountain church. Then the island’s new police chief–the young, politically incorrect, former Athens homicide detective Andreas Kaldis–starts finding bodies, bones, and suspects almost everywhere he looks. Teamed with the canny, nearly-retired local homicide chief, Andreas tries to find the killer before the media can destroy the island’s fabled reputation with a barrage of world-wide attention on a mystery that’s haunted Mykonos undetected for decades. Just when it seems things can’t get any worse, another young woman disappears and political niceties no longer matter. With the investigation now a rescue operation, Andreas finds himself plunging into ancient myths and forgotten island places, racing against a killer intent on claiming a new victim who is herself determined to outstep him.

    Imperial Russia’s Czar Alexander I battles Napoleon for control of Europe   After declaring himself Emperor of France following a sweeping victory in Europe, General Napoleon Bonaparte, the son of a poor Corsican lawyer, is ready for his next conquest. He has no doubt that he can defeat Austria, and is confident that Russia will soon follow. After all, he triumphed in revolution and recast an empire. What has he to fear from the twenty-nine-year-old czar of a barbaric country?   The grandson of Catherine the Great, Alexander I is tall, irresistibly handsome, and known for his liberal leanings and winning ways with women who are not his wife. He ascended to the throne by murdering his father and is now determined to vanquish the French emperor. Napoleon will soon learn that he has a formidable adversary in Alexander.   Sweeping from St. Petersburg to Paris, from the Kremlin to the battlefield, and filled with historic authenticity, Far Flies the Eagle offers a fascinating glimpse into the Romanov family, including the controversy surrounding Alexander’s relationship with his beautiful, power-hungry sister, the Grand Duchess Catherine, whom Napoleon considers marrying if he can rid himself of his years-older wife Josephine.  Far Flies the Eagle is the 3rd book in the Romanov Trilogy, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

Undercover at a prominent ad agency, SIS agent Davina Graham has been tasked with the unenviable job of uncovering the traitor, who goes by the code name Albatross. Could it be Davina’s boss, Brigadier Sir James White, a twenty-year SIS veteran, months away from retirement? Humphrey Grant, White’s second-in-command, whose public persona conceals damning sexual secrets? Or John Kidson, the technocrat married to Davina’s beautiful, pampered sister?   Further complicating matters is the fact that, in Moscow, a longtime nemesis is pulling strings behind the scenes, setting up false trails as he vows to destroy Britain and make Russia the supreme super power—and only one woman stands in his way. Torn between two lovers—Scottish operative Colin Lomax and self-made advertising executive Tony Walden—Davina must move quickly before time runs out for them all.  Albatross is the 3rd book in the Davina Graham Thrillers, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    As the new head of the Secret Intelligence Service, Davina Graham faces her most daunting challenge: solving a series of seemingly random political murders in international waters  The first female head of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, Davina Graham is taking a well-deserved holiday with her lover, advertising executive Tony Walden. But her Venetian idyll is short-lived. On the Grand Canal, widowed US Secretary of the Defense Henry Franklyn and his daughter are killed when a bomb blows their gondola to smithereens. The local police believe it was the work of the rabid Red Brigade or the Palestine Liberation Organization because Franklyn was a Jew. But Davina is certain that Igor Borisov, the power-hungry head of the KGB who ordered the assassination of Davina’s Russian defector husband, is behind it.  Another murder soon makes international headlines: the massacre of France’s minister of the interior and her family. Then the Soviet prime minister is killed in Poland, followed by the death of a pacifist British priest in London. The assassinations bring Davina’s ex-lover out of retirement. Forced to once again join forces with Intelligence agent Colin Lomax, while coping with a sudden death in her own family, Davina is determined to find evidence linking Borosov to the executions. The hunt leads to a shadowy organization called the Company of Saints, a private brigade of hired killers whose chilling end game is just beginning.  The Company of Saints is the 4th book in the Davina Graham Thrillers, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
