More in political fiction

James Church, a former Western intelligence officer, returns to the secret world of North Korean intelligence with another “crackling good” (The Washington Post) story in his critically acclaimed Inspector O series.

Under the guise of machinery for making dumplings, a Spanish factory near Barcelona is secretly producing a key component in the production of nuclear weapons. When information finds its way to the inboxes of Western intelligence agencies that this “dumpling maker” is meant for North Korea, orders go out that the shipment must be stopped. Either the machine must be disabled while still in the factory, or the transportation route must be discovered so the equipment can be intercepted before it reaches its destination. An old friend recruits Inspector O to assist in the complex operation designed to disrupt the plans for shipping the machine.

Carefully planted bits of information and bizarre events have led both the Spanish factory and those trying to intercept the machine to conclude that Japanese criminal organizations are involved in buying and transporting the “dumpling” machine in order to hide the involvement of North Korea. A flurry of murders puts the focus on the northeast Chinese city of Yanji, near the border with North Korea, where O’s nephew Major Bing is the Chief of State Security. Bing has his own problems dealing with a corrupt local mayor who is out for his head, coping with a new deputy who cannot be trusted, and figuring out why a Chinese gangster he’s worked for years to chase away has suddenly returned.

Church— hailed as “the equal of le Carré” by Publishers Weekly — takes O deep into a maze of cracked mirrors that hide the exits from an elaborate, deadly double blind in his most elaborate mystery yet, The Gentleman from Japan.

In a rip-roaring plot that could be torn from tomorrow’s headlines, bestselling author T. Davis Bunn weaves political intrigues and disturbing moral dilemmas into a chillingly credible portrait of the cutthroat world of international finance.
Jackie Havilland is working in an Orlando detective agency when she is approached with an unusual request: Esther Hutchings, wife of Congressman Graham Hutchings, wants Jackie to find out who is behind a smear campaign to destroy her husband, who has recently suffered a debilitating stroke. Congressman Hutchings was investigating a secret project called Tsunami, the biggest currency scam in history. Jackie is instructed to unearth all she can and to leave no paper trail.

Wynn Bryant, a successful, wealthy businessman, is the brother-in-law of the governor of Florida. Wynn has never liked politics and is surprised when his brother-in-law contrives to have him take Hutchings’s place in Congress. The reason soon becomes clear: Legislation to relieve Third World countries of their debt–dubbed the Jubilee Amendment–is in the offing, and the governor is determined to have it quashed at any cost. Just as Wynn is about to decline the position, he is told that refusing isn’t an option.

As Jackie and Wynn get more deeply involved in their new assignments, they begin to feel ripples of a conspiracy carrying a destructive power far more dangerous than the notorious Tsunami scam. It is a killer wave that threatens to crush them both–and permanently reshape the world economy.

In his previous Doubleday novel, The Great Divide, T. Davis Bunn spun a legal thriller that wowed critics and readers alike. In Drummer in the Dark, he captures contemporary political and financial maneuverings with the same dazzling artistry. Climaxing in a highly charged showdown between the demands of morality and the driving forces of economic globalization in our increasingly interdependent world, Drummer in the Dark brings the suspense novel to a whole new level of excitement.
America's influence wanes around the world as political turmoil in the U.S. fuels the growth of the brutal Islamic Caliphate. Over-extended intelligence assets tracking the global Islamist movement struggle to piece together random bits of information about a mysterious place in the Afghan mountains called the Valley of Stars. The Valley is a treasure trove of precious metals and gem stones that could fund global Islamic extremism for generations and ignites a race to secure it.

The crisis forces Secretary of Defense Madeline Coltrain to fight a political war with her nemesis at State, and a shooting war with a drastically eroded military capability. Coltrain must walk a fine line between what's needed to meet the threat and what's constitutional as she stretches the boundaries of the President's directives. The race to the Valley of Stars violently erupts when Pakistani forces, led by a rogue General aligned with the Caliphate, collide with the severely outnumbered allied forces in the rugged Afghan mountains.

As the battle for the Valley rages, a new set of leaders emerges from unlikely places. The allies, led by Lieutenant Colonel Abdul Qadir, a Shia, unique among Afghan officers, who commands unwavering loyalty from his mostly Sunni troops. Lieutenant Colonel DB Watkins, a highly decorated American commander with a reputation of building relations with local leaders. And Staff Sergeant Shirin Kirkorian, nicknamed "The Lioness," an intelligence asset and first female to complete Ranger training who balances deference to Islamic customs and culture with deadly efficient combat skills. They form a lethal triad to counter the savagery of the Islamist forces aligned against them.
A plan to destroy America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed . . . can it be stopped?

There is a powerful technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our laws, and our future. It works by manipulating public perception so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable over time. Move the Window and you change the debate. Change the debate and you change the country.

For Noah Gardner, a twentysomething public relations executive, it’s safe to say that political theory is the furthest thing from his mind. Smart, single, handsome, and insulated from the world’s problems by the wealth and power of his father, Noah is far more concerned about the future of his social life than the future of his country.

But all of that changes when Noah meets Molly Ross, a woman who is consumed by the knowledge that the America we know is about to be lost forever. She and her group of patriots have vowed to remember the past and fight for the future—but Noah, convinced they’re just misguided conspiracy-theorists, isn’t interested in lending his considerable skills to their cause.

And then the world changes.

An unprecedented attack on U.S. soil shakes the country to the core and puts into motion a frightening plan, decades in the making, to transform America and demonize all those who stand in the way. Amidst the chaos, many don’t know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact—or, more important, which side to fight for.

But for Noah, the choice is clear: Exposing the plan, and revealing the conspirators behind it, is the only way to save both the woman he loves and the individual freedoms he once took for granted.

After five back-to-back #1 New York Times bestsellers, national radio and Fox News television host Glenn Beck has delivered a ripped-from-the-headlines thriller that seamlessly weaves together American history, frightening facts about our present condition, and a heart-stopping plot. The Overton Window will educate, enlighten, and, most important, entertain—with twists and revelations
no one will see coming.
"A captivating second addition to the Simon Trilogy.

The modern political thriller has a strong advocate in Fernandez." Maestro Debra Cheverino, Internationally Recognized Conductor, Fulbright Scholar, Florence, Italy.


Fresh on the heels of her acclaimed first novel Brotherhood Beyond the Yard, Sally Fernandez has penned the sequel Noble’s Quest, adding more sparkling thrills to “The Simon Tetralogy” she is authoring.Major earth shaking events in Europe and the USA converge to fuel Interpol and the States Intelligence Agency to join forces.

Leading edge technology is used to unravel the labyrinth of connections. The events are not coincidental. The enormous risks facing the USA and the world eventually draw the newly-elected president into the picture. 


Land grabs, political manipulation, and a terrorist camp, along with sea changes in the American psyche are skillfully woven to form a tapestry of intrigue. The widely sought mastermind of the global terrorist threat adds a breathtaking twist that lends even more intrigue to the narrative.


Written in the author’s patent style, readers will be beguiled by the artistic marriage of established facts with a storyline that lifts creativity to new heights. Readers will be challenged to separate fact from fiction, in the true Fernandez style.
