On the eve of a vital CIA assignment, an agent’s hesitation leads him to the brink of disaster

His grandfather was a lawman too. That’s how Charles O’Farrell rationalizes his work. He keeps a picture of his ancestor by his bed, a faded sepia portrait of a short, plain-looking man made remarkable only by the long-barreled Colt strapped to his hip. His grandfather killed to make the frontier safe—O’Farrell has the faded newspaper clippings to prove it. In the service of America, O’Farrell kills too. But his killings never make the front page. A trained CIA assassin, O’Farrell lives like a machine, operating according to a perfect routine because routine keeps him sharp. Routine keeps killers from getting killed. But now, as he readies his next hit, a terrible twist will disrupt his once meticulous process. Doubt has begun to creep into Charles O’Farrell’s mind, and in a business where even the smallest hesitation can spell certain death, doubt is very dangerous indeed. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Brian Freemantle including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

The complete series starring the British female operative—from the international bestselling author and “powerful plotter of spy stories” (The Daily Telegraph).
 
The Defector: MI6 agent Davina Graham knows better. But she’s fallen hopelessly in love with the married KGB defector she’s been ordered to debrief. In exchange for information, Ivan Sasanov insists his wife and daughter back in the USSR must be brought to England and given asylum. But the KGB is already on to him—he barely escapes an assassination attempt. And now his wife has been arrested. With Sasanov’s daughter in imminent danger, Graham knows there’s only one way to save the family of the man she loves.
 
“Veteran romance-suspenser Anthony continues to sharpen her talents—and this East/West espionage . . . is one of her best.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
The Avenue of the Dead: The British-born wife of Edward Fleming, the US president’s assistant under-secretary of state and close friend, has appealed to the British ambassador for sanctuary. Elizabeth Fleming claims her husband tried to murder her because she found out he was passing information to the Russians. Though it was ruled an accident, his first wife died in a fire in their Mexico vacation home. To find out the truth, Davina Graham follows a labyrinthine trail from the inner circles of Washington, DC, to Mexico, where she will use herself as bait to trap an elusive criminal known as the Plumed Serpent.
 
“Solid and classy entertainment.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
Albatross: A mole high in the ranks of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service has been feeding national secrets to the Soviets. Davina Graham goes undercover to root out the traitor, code named Albatross. Could it be her 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 Graham’s beautiful, pampered sister? The MI6 agent must move quickly before time runs out for them all.
 
“If you like your spy stories to have a touch of class, you will enjoy Evelyn Anthony’s Albatross.” —The Sunday Times
 
The Company of Saints: Now the first female head of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, Davina Graham is taking a well-deserved holiday in Venice, when on the Grand Canal, the US Secretary of Defense and his daughter are blown up in a gondola. When more assassinations follow, Graham is convinced that Igor Borisov, the power-hungry head of the KGB, is behind the executions. Working with Intelligence agent Colin Lomax, her ex-lover, they uncover a shadowy organization called the Company of Saints, a private brigade of hired killers whose chilling end game is just beginning.
 
“Written and plotted with all the skill one associates with Ms. Anthony and readable as ever.” —The Irish Times
After failing a critical assignment overseas, Will Robie must investigate a murder accusation against his father--but to save him, he'll have to face a violent and deadly fallout in this New York Times bestselling thriller.

Will Robie escaped his small Gulf Coast hometown of Cantrell, Mississippi after high school, severing all personal ties, and never looked back. Not until the unimaginable occurs. His father, Dan Robie, has been arrested and charged with murder.

Father and son haven't spoken or seen each other since the day Robie left town. In that time, Dan Robie--a local attorney and pillar of the community--has been elected town judge. Despite this, most of Cantrell is aligned against Dan. His guilt is assumed.

To make matters worse, Dan has refused to do anything to defend himself. When Robie tries to help, his father responds only with anger and defiance. Could Dan really be guilty?

With the equally formidable Jessica Reel at his side, Robie ignores his father's wishes and begins his own desperate investigation into the case. But Robie is now a stranger to his hometown, an outsider, a man who has forsaken his past and his family. His attempts to save his father are met with distrust and skepticism...and violence.

Unlike the missions Robie undertook in the service of his country, where his target was clearly defined, digging into his father's case only reveals more questions. Robie is drawn into the hidden underside of Cantrell, where he must face the unexpected and possibly deadly consequences of the long-ago choices made by father and son. And this time, there may be no escape for either of them.
