Summary

One man is caught up in a lethal global conspiracy in this explosive spy thriller.
“I need your support. There is no one else I can trust. Please help her. Please help our daughter.”
When ex-Delta Force operator Jack Ford receives a letter containing news of a daughter he never knew he had, he feels compelled to return to China, a country he hasn’t visited since 1989 when, as a young American spy, he fell in love with a beautiful student activist and found himself caught up in the horrors of the Tiananmen Square massacre. But why has Xia got in touch now, after a thirty-year silence?
On arrival in Beijing, Jack finds himself accidentally in possession of an explosive piece of information both the Chinese and American governments are desperate to get their hands on.  Alone in a strange city, suspected of being a traitor by his own side, not knowing whom to trust, Jack is faced with an impossible dilemma: should he save his new-found daughter or prevent a new world war from breaking out?

    An opera singer is terrified by an obsessive fan in this “stunning” mystery in the New York Times–bestselling series set in Venice, Italy (Library Journal, starred review).   Years ago, Guido Brunetti cleared the opera star Flavia Petrelli in the murder of a renowned conductor. Now the soprano is returning to Venice—and its celebrated opera house, La Fenice—to sing the lead in Tosca.   Brunetti and his wife, Paola, attend an early performance, and Flavia receives a standing ovation. Back in her dressing room, she finds bouquets of yellow roses—too many roses. Every surface of the room is covered with them. An anonymous fan has been showering Flavia with these beautiful gifts in London, St. Petersburg, Amsterdam, and now Venice, but she no longer feels flattered, only frightened.   When she confesses her alarm—and then a singer who has caught Flavia’s attention is savagely attacked—Brunetti begins to think that Flavia’s fears are justified in ways neither of them imagined, and he must enter into the psyche of an obsessive fan . . .   From a New York Times–bestselling and Silver Dagger Award–winning author, this is “one of the most exquisite and subtle detective series ever” (The Washington Post).   “Another provocative addition to a fine series, certain to appeal to aficionados of profound literary mysteries such as Louise Penny’s How the Light Gets In.” —Library Journal, starred review

    Carter can be bought. He has been working as a mercenary for years and knows that you do not ask too many questions - assuming the price is right. His newest contract brings him to New York, where a wealthy client relies on his professional services.
    The job does not seem to be extraordinary; he is one of many. But soon, Carter realizes that it's about more than just the investigation of a bank robbery, which was too much for the police to handle, according to the client. And indeed, the mercenary learns a short time later what it means to follow a really hot trail. Carter chases clues all over New York, encountering gangs, the mafia and much more dangerous situations. The professional gets caught up in a web of deceptions, lies and the greed of unscrupulous people.
    He puts his own life at risk – and in the end he has to ask himself if you can really buy morality.
    "Carter is not my real name, by the way."
