A deadly web of deceit ensnares two spies with a complicated personal history in this electrifying tale of World War II

Eva Bernhardt was a naive twenty-year-old when the rakish spymaster William Hobbs seduced her into working for the British secret service. Now, a year later, she is a tough and cynical operative stationed in Berlin, her hatred of the Nazis matched only by her distrust of the man who abandoned her to the whims of MI6.

Tasked with discovering Hitler’s plans for invading France, Eva unearths what appears to be a vital piece of information. What she doesn’t realize is that the Germans know she is a spy and are using her to mislead the Allies. It is up to Hobbs to rescue Eva and prevent a military disaster. Standing in his way are her seething resentment and two of the Gestapo’s most sinister agents.

From one astonishing plot twist to the next, A Game of Spies is a riveting story of cloak-and-dagger intrigue in the tradition of Eric Ambler and John le Carré.

The five ace intelligence agents gathered at the secret St. John Institute are the best of the best. The best at tradecraft. The best at weapons handling. The best at analyzing a volatile situation, getting in, getting what they came for, and getting out alive.

They are all dead-their old identities perished when they were kidnapped by the secret masters of the institute. Now they have new names and new personal histories. More important, each has received a life-saving organ transplant. And something else-twice a day, each is given an injection of a mysterious golden serum. They are no longer ordinary human beings. Their minds are linked in a bond that grows stronger with time.

Their leader is known as Denny Monroe. He doesn't trust anyone associated with the St. John Institute-especially not Charlotte Willson, who oversees the transplant project. Since the five agents are already dead, Monroe figures they're seen as expendable-and he's going to do whatever is necessary to protect himself and his four colleagues.

Half a world away, a Russian general, desperate to escape his country's failing economy and crumbling military, sells five small atomic bombs-suitcase nukes-to an international terrorist. He's paid a staggering sum that allows him to ignore the death and destruction the bombs will inevitably cause.

But General Temkov can't quite sleep peacefully at night. His best spy has vanished in the U.S. under suspicious circumstances. Kidnapping an Americana diplomat in Moscow, Temkov pressures the CIA to reveal the whereabouts of his missing man. But the CIA knows nothing.

The first suitcase nuke destroys a small African city-a test of the equipment. Three more bombs are on their way to London, Jerusalem, and Washington, D.C. The CIA is convinced that the missing spy and the missing bombs are somehow connected. But to find out exactly what is going on, they need Denny Monroe and his band of extraordinary telepaths. Monroe has needs of his own-to determine the identity of the mysterious "Kelly's People." Are they his team, or does the St. John Institute guard even more secrets?

The next in New York Times top 5 bestseller Steve Berry's Cotton Malone series involves the Knights of Malta, papal conclave, and lost documents that could change history.

A deadly race for the Vatican’s oldest secret fuels New York Times bestseller Steve Berry’s latest international Cotton Malone thriller.


The pope is dead. A conclave to select his replacement is about to begin. Cardinals are beginning to arrive at the Vatican, but one has fled Rome for Malta in search of a document that dates back to the 4th century and Constantine the Great.

Former Justice Department operative, Cotton Malone, is at Lake Como, Italy, on the trail of legendary letters between Winston Churchill and Benito Mussolini that disappeared in 1945 and could re-write history. But someone else seems to be after the same letters and, when Malone obtains then loses them, he’s plunged into a hunt that draws the attention of the legendary Knights of Malta.

The knights have existed for over nine hundred years, the only warrior-monks to survive into modern times. Now they are a global humanitarian organization, but within their ranks lurks trouble — the Secreti — an ancient sect intent on affecting the coming papal conclave. With the help of Magellan Billet agent Luke Daniels, Malone races the rogue cardinal, the knights, the Secreti, and the clock to find what has been lost for centuries. The final confrontation culminates behind the walls of the Vatican where the election of the next pope hangs in the balance.
