The Davina Graham Thrillers
British Intelligence Service agent Davina Graham falls in love with the KGB defector she has been ordered to debrief in this cold war thriller
British operative Davina Graham’s life is her work. Her latest assignment is her most daunting. For the past five months, she’s been trying to gain the confidence of Ivan Sasanov—and against her better judgment, she’s falling in love with him. Sasanov, a top KGB agent who defected to America, has an Achilles heel: He desperately misses the family he left behind in Russia. In exchange for information, his wife and daughter 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, Irina, in imminent danger, Davina knows there’s only one way to save the family of the man she loves.
Shifting between multiple viewpoints, this complex Cold War thriller will keep readers guessing as a diabolical chess game of espionage and intrigue plays out on a global stage. For Sasanov, it means returning to the country he betrayed. For Davina, a vulnerable woman in a place where she is now the hunted, it means risking everything for a future she may not live to see.

MI6 agent Davina Graham plunges into a hotbed of international intrigue when she penetrates the inner sanctum of one of the US president’s top aides, and tracks an elusive criminal from the White House to Moscow to Mexico City.
Still reeling from the murder of her husband, Ivan Sasanov, at the hands of the KGB, British Intelligence agent Davina Graham has been called back into active service to head off a potential international crisis. 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 that her husband tried to murder her because she found out he was passing information to the Russians. Fleming’s first wife died in a fire in their Mexico vacation home, but it was officially ruled an accident. Now the Secret Intelligence Service needs Davina to find out whether Elizabeth’s allegations are true. If so, Elizabeth’s life could be in grave danger. But it may already be too late.
Now a target herself, Davina follows a labyrinthine trail that takes her from the inner circles of Washington to Mexico City and a clinic in the mountains that will bring a fiendishly clever global conspiracy full circle. On the edge of uncovering the truth about two seemingly unrelated murders, she uses herself as bait to trap an elusive criminal known as the Plumed Serpent.

Can Davina Graham uncover the traitor in Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service before it’s too late?
Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service has been compromised: A mole high in their ranks has been feeding national secrets to the Soviets. Undercover at a prominent ad agency, SIS agent Davina Graham has been tasked with the unenviable job of uncovering the traitor, who goes by the code name Albatross. Could it be Davina’s 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 Davina’s beautiful, pampered sister?
Further complicating matters is the fact that, in Moscow, a longtime nemesis is pulling strings behind the scenes, setting up false trails as he vows to destroy Britain and make Russia the supreme super power—and only one woman stands in his way. Torn between two lovers—Scottish operative Colin Lomax and self-made advertising executive Tony Walden—Davina must move quickly before time runs out for them all.
Albatross is the 3rd book in the Davina Graham Thrillers, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
As the new head of the Secret Intelligence Service, Davina Graham faces her most daunting challenge: solving a series of seemingly random political murders in international waters
The first female head of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, Davina Graham is taking a well-deserved holiday with her lover, advertising executive Tony Walden. But her Venetian idyll is short-lived. On the Grand Canal, widowed US Secretary of the Defense Henry Franklyn and his daughter are killed when a bomb blows their gondola to smithereens. The local police believe it was the work of the rabid Red Brigade or the Palestine Liberation Organization because Franklyn was a Jew. But Davina is certain that Igor Borisov, the power-hungry head of the KGB who ordered the assassination of Davina’s Russian defector husband, is behind it.
Another murder soon makes international headlines: the massacre of France’s minister of the interior and her family. Then the Soviet prime minister is killed in Poland, followed by the death of a pacifist British priest in London. The assassinations bring Davina’s ex-lover out of retirement. Forced to once again join forces with Intelligence agent Colin Lomax, while coping with a sudden death in her own family, Davina is determined to find evidence linking Borosov to the executions. The hunt leads to a shadowy organization called the Company of Saints, a private brigade of hired killers whose chilling end game is just beginning.
The Company of Saints is the 4th book in the Davina Graham Thrillers, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
