About the author

 Mike Wells is an American bestselling author of over 20 "unputdownable" thriller and suspense novels, including Lust, Money & Murder and Passion, Power & Sin. He is also known for his young adult books, such as The Mysterious Disappearance of Kurt Kramer, The Wrong Side of the Tracks, and Wild Child, which are used by English teachers in high schools and colleges worldwide. Formerly a screenwriter, Wells has a fast-paced, cinematic writing style. His work is often compared to that of the late Sidney Sheldon, with strong and inspiring female heroes, tightly-written scenes, engaging action/dialogue, and numerous plot twists. He currently lives in Europe and has taught in the Creative Writing program at the University of Oxford.

Almost as soon as Devika Fernando could write, she imagined stories and poems. After finishing her education in Germany and returning to her roots in Sri Lanka, she got a chance to turn her passion into her profession. Having lived in Germany and in Sri Lanka with her husband has made her experience the best (and the worst) of two totally different worlds – something that influences her writing. Her trademark is writing sweet, yet deeply emotional romance stories where the characters actually fall in love instead of merely falling in lust. What she loves most about being an author is the chance to create new worlds and send her protagonists on a journey full of ups and downs that will leave them changed. She draws inspiration from everyone and everything in life. Besides being a romance novelist, she works as a self-employed German web content writer, as a translator, and as a faithful servant to all the cats, dogs, fish and birds in her home. When she’s not writing, she’s reading or thinking about writing.

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
