Milo
Marchetti, an unstoppable but damaged Canadian hero of the Afghanistan
War, pursues the love of the unattainable, feisty Adara Nasim, the
daughter of Mohammed, the patriarch of the criminal Nasim family of
Trieste, Italy. While Milo fights for the woman he comes to love, Adara
has to struggle with her deepening need for Milo and the obligation to
her father to marry a man of his choice.








Can
Milo overcome Adara's degenerate brother's attempt to have him arrested
by the police for prostitute murders and protect Adara from being
killed by the rival Mazzola family? Can he escape the death threat of
his former boss in military intelligence, and eliminate Adara's intended
husband, a radical, criminal Muslim? Will religious differences be too
big a hurdle for Adara and Milo to overcome and will the powerful sexual
distraction of another love interest for Milo end his interest in
Adara?

Worst
of all, will Milo's shocking discovery about Adara's relationship with
her brother prevent Milo from marrying her and becoming head of the
Nasim family?

About the author

 George is a well-travelled educator who loves the thrill of visiting foreign countries (about forty so far) and experiencing their cultures. Besides history, cuisine and architecture, he is particularly fascinated by language and religion. (Nowhere will he not try to speak the language with the locals, whether they like it or not.) These are facets of human civilisation he likes to bring to his fast-paced thrillers, with a dash of the romance that is at the core of our existence thrown in. George was born in England and after university moved to Los Angeles, California, USA, and to Toronto, Canada. He ended up living and working for almost thirty years as a college instructor in the biological sciences on Vancouver Island, British Columbia before he was put out to pasture—and had the freedom to travel. He is currently completing a second thriller-romance novel, tentatively titled Recycled Love, based upon a trip with his wife and fellow author, Serena Janes, across the fabulous mayhem of India to the calm of the sherpas in Nepal. Love and Death in Trieste is his first novel and was written after an exciting trip through Slovenia, Croatia, Italy and Bosnia. Visit the author at http://georgehenryauthor.com/

From Daniel Silva, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author, comes a modern masterpiece of espionage, love, and betrayal

She was his best-kept secret …

In an isolated village in the mountains of Andalusia, a mysterious Frenchwoman begins work on a dangerous memoir. It is the story of a man she once loved in the Beirut of old, and a child taken from her in treason’s name. The woman is the keeper of the Kremlin’s most closely guarded secret. Long ago, the KGB inserted a mole into the heart of the West—a mole who stands on the doorstep of ultimate power.

Only one man can unravel the conspiracy: Gabriel Allon, the legendary art restorer and assassin who serves as the chief of Israel’s vaunted secret intelligence service. Gabriel has battled the dark forces of the new Russia before, at great personal cost. Now he and the Russians will engage in a final epic showdown, with the fate of the postwar global order hanging in the balance.

Gabriel is lured into the hunt for the traitor after his most important asset inside Russian intelligence is brutally assassinated while trying to defect in Vienna. His quest for the truth will lead him backward in time, to the twentieth century’s greatest act of treason, and, finally, to a spellbinding climax along the banks of the Potomac River outside Washington that will leave readers breathless.

Fast as a bullet, hauntingly beautiful, and filled with stunning double-crosses and twists of plot, The Other Woman is a tour de force that proves once again that “of all those writing spy novels today, Daniel Silva is quite simply the best” (Kansas City Star).
