Summary

Jack Ranger is a young journalist ready to set the world on fire.  

As a freshly-minted college graduate he follows an enigmatic mentor on a quest to expose the corrupt governor of Massachusetts. But society’s institutions have a way of keeping themselves in power and Jack finds himself enveloped in conspiracy and sabotage that threatens to silence both the truth and his future.  

In his attempt to re-write the rules, Jack creates Flint Media to breathe new life into the tired industry of truth-telling and to bring out the story that the world so desperately needs to hear. Flint Media takes Jack from the streets of Boston to the high stakes world of New York City, where his venture-backed startups risks flying too close to the sun. As Jack’s purpose bleeds from righteousness to vindication he struggles to reconcile his dreams with the reality of who he has become.  

In a blend of “House of Cards” and “Silicon Valley,” Jack & Coke explores the relationship between our ability to preserve transparency and this generation’s struggle to “make it” in a world of stratifying inequality.

    International bestselling author Campbell Armstrong sweeps readers back to the psychedelic sixties in an atmospheric, page-turning thriller about a fugitive ex-hippie who must run for his life when he is caught up in a political conspiracy  Many years ago, Harry Tennant managed to escape San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury hippie scene relatively intact, although his memory of that time is largely wiped out. Now Harry’s peaceful life is overturned when his upstate–New York marijuana farm is raided by the police and he’s thrown in jail.   Released on bail, Harry is contacted by Alison Seagrove, a reporter investigating a conspiracy connected to Harry’s hazy past. When she shows him an old photo of himself and four others, Harry barely recognizes himself and can’t remember his friends’ names—or why the photograph has global political implications. To avoid prison and stay one step ahead of the killers pursuing him, Harry undertakes a chilling journey back to Haight-Ashbury to unlock the mystery behind his shattered memory.

    For forensic psychologist Kate Hanson, the evidence reveals careful planning but also loss of control. It makes no sense. Nor can she and her team agree as to motive. Is it drugs? Money? Sex? The only thing that’s clear is that Matthew Flynn had been keeping secrets from his family and friends.

    Did Inspector Green put the wrong man behind bars?  
     
     
    Twenty years ago, a raw and impressionable Detective Michael Green helped convict a young professor for the murder of an attractive co-ed. From behind bars, the man continued to hound Green with letters protesting his innocence. Shortly after being paroled, he is found dead. Is it suicide? Revenge? Or had Green made the biggest mistake of his career — a mistake which cost an innocent man his liberty and ultimately his life? To determine the truth, Green is forced to re-examine old evidence and open up old wounds to stare down a far greater evil hiding in plain sight.

    A new cold war is coming, and Liz Carlyle is about to find herself on very thin ice. Still reeling from the loss of the man she loved in a botched antiterrorist operation in Paris, Carlyle has been posted to MI5's counter-espionage desk, where her bosses hope the relative quiet might give her the chance to find her feet again.  
     
    However, they hadn't counted on the aftershocks of Russia's incursions into Crimea and President Putin's determination to silence those who would oppose him, wherever they may be living in the world. As a result, Liz soon finds herself on the hunt for a Russian spy on British soil--a spy whose intentions are unknown, and whose presence is a threat not only to Russian dissidents living in England but also to the security of the nation itself. And with MI5 and MI6 coming under painful public scrutiny in the post-Edward Snowden world, for Liz and her team, security is something that is beginning to feel increasingly remote. 
     
    Pacy, gripping and drawn from her own experience, Stella Rimington's latest Liz Carlyle thriller brings the new cold war compellingly to life.
