NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES—THE MASTERPIECE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON
 
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
 
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
 
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.

#1 New York Times Bestseller

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.

For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

From the author of the international mega-bestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck comes a counterintuitive guide to the problems of hope.

We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it’s ever been—we are freer, healthier and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked—the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history, when we have access to technology, education and communication our ancestors couldn’t even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness.

What’s going on? If anyone can put a name to our current malaise and help fix it, it’s Mark Manson. In 2016, Manson published The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck, a book that brilliantly gave shape to the ever-present, low-level hum of anxiety that permeates modern living. He showed us that technology had made it too easy to care about the wrong things, that our culture had convinced us that the world owed us something when it didn’t—and worst of all, that our modern and maddening urge to always find happiness only served to make us unhappier. Instead, the “subtle art” of that title turned out to be a bold challenge: to choose your struggle; to narrow and focus and find the pain you want to sustain. The result was a book that became an international phenomenon, selling millions of copies worldwide while becoming the #1 bestseller in 13 different countries.

Now, in Everthing Is F*cked, Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits, he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He openly defies our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom—and even of hope itself.

With his usual mix of erudition and where-the-f*ck-did-that-come-from humor, Manson takes us by the collar and challenges us to be more honest with ourselves and connected with the world in ways we probably haven’t considered before. It’s another counterintuitive romp through the pain in our hearts and the stress of our soul. One of the great modern writers has produced another book that will set the agenda for years to come.

--Publishers Weekly (Kahramanların Görevi hakkında)

KARDEŞLERİN YEMİNİ’nde Thorgrin ve kardeşleri Guwayne’i bulmaya daha da büyük bir kararlılıkla ölüler diyarından çıkarlar ve düşmancıl ve onları akıllarına hayallerine gelmeyecek yerlere götüren bir denize açılırlar. Guwayne’i bulmaya yaklaştıkça, zorluklar onları son güçlerine kadar sınavdan geçirecek, tüm eğitimlerini sergilemelerini gerektirecek ve kardeşler olarak tek bir beden gibi bir arda durmaya zorlayacak sınavlardan geçerler.

Darius İmparatorluğa karşı gelir ve bir ordu kurarak cesurca bir köle şehrinin ardından diğerini serbest bırakır. Korunaklı şehirlere ve kendisininkinden bir kat daha büyük bir orduya karşı savaşırken, içgüdülerinin ve cesaretinin tamamını kullanarak kararlılıkla hayatta kalmaya, kazanmaya, bedeli ne olursa olsun, hayatı pahasına bile özgür kalmaya çalışır.

Başka bir seçeneği kalmayan Gwendolyn halkını İmparatorluğun kimsenin gitmediği kadar derinliklerine götürür ve efsanevi İkinci Halka’yı bulmaya çalışır… Orası halkının hayatta kalması için son şansı olmasının yanı sıra Darius için de son şanstır. Ancak oraya giderken, yolda dehşet verici canavarlarla, zorlu topraklarla ve halkının arasında kendisinin bile durdurması mümkün olmayabilecek bir isyanla karşı karşıya kalır.

Erec ve Alistair halklarını kurtarmak için İmparatorluğa gitmek üzere denize açılırlar ve yolda bir ordu kurma kararlılığıyla ufak adalarda dururlar… Şaibeli oldukları bilinen paralı askerlerle bile uğraşma pahasına bunu yapmaya kararlıdırlar.

Godfrey kendisini Volusia şehrinin göbeğinde bulur, ancak planı gitgide kötüye giderken başı büyük bir derde girer. Yakalanıp tutsak edilir, infaz edilmesi kararlaştırılır ve kendisi bile bu durumdan bir çıkış yolu bulamaz.

Volusia en karanlık büyücülerle bir anlaşma yapar ve daha da güçlü olma hırsıyla yükselmeye ve karşısına çıkar her yeri istila etmeye devam eder. Her zamankinden daha güçlü hale gelince, savaşını İmparatorluk Başkenti’nin basamaklarına kadar götürür… Ta ki kendi ordusunu bile gölgede bırakan tüm İmparatorluk ordusunu karşısına alıp, destansı bir savaş için zemini hazırlayana dek.

Thorgrin Guwayne’i bulabilecek mi? Gwendolyn ve halkı hayatta kalak mı? Godfrey kaçabilecek mi? Erec ve Alistair imparatorluğa ulaşabilecek mi? Volusia bir sonraki İmparatoriçe olabilecek mi? Darius halkını zafere ulaştırabilecek mi?

KADŞEŞLERİN YEMİNİ sofistike dünya oluşumuyla ve özellikleriyle arkadaşlara ve aşıklara, rakiplere ve kur yapanlara, şövalyelere ve ejderhalara, entrikalara ve politik entrikalara, reşit olmaya, kırılan kalplere, aldatmacaya, hırsa ve ihanete dair destansı bir öykü. Şeref ve cesaretle, kaderle ve yazgıyla, büyücülükle ilgili bir öykü. Bizleri asla unutmayacağımız ve her yaşa ve cinsiyete hitap eden bir dünyaya götüren bir fantezi.
“Morgan Rice’ın önceki romanlarının hayranları ve Christopher Paolini’nin The Inheritance Cycle (Miras) serisi gibi işlerin hayranlarını memnun edecek macera dolu bir fantezi… Genç Yetişkin Edebiyatının hayranları Rice’ın bu son kitabını çok sevecek ve daha fazlası için yalvaracaktır.”

--The Wanderer, A Literary Journal (Ejderhaların Yükselişi ile ilgili olarak)

CESURUN GECESİ’nde, Marda’dan kaçıp Hakikat Asası’yla birlikte Escalon’a dönmenin bir yolunu bulmak zorundadır. Eğer başarabilirse, onu, Ra’nın orduları, bir trol ulusu ve bir ejderha sürüsünün karşılayacağı, hayatının en destansı savaşı beklemektedir. Güçleri ve silah yeteri kadar güçlüyse, annesi ona, kaderinin sırları ve doğumu hakkındaki tüm gerçekleri açıklamak üzere onu bekleyecektir.

Duncan tek ve son kez Ra’nın ordularına karşı destansı bir direniş göstermek zorundadır. Fakat Duncan hayatının en büyük savaşı ve son direniş için Şeytan Deresi’ne doğru ilerlerken, Ra’nın ona hazırladığı tuzaktan habersizdir.

Ölüm Körfezi’nde Merk ve Kral Tarnis’in kızı ejderhalarla savaşmak için Alec ve Kayıp Adalar halkıyla güçlerini birleştirecektir. Duncan’ı bulmalı ve Escalon’u kurtarmak için birlik olmalıdırlar. Fakat Vesuvius tekrar ortaya çıkmıştır ve onları bekleyen tehlikeden haberleri yoktur.

Krallar ve Büyücüler’in destansı finali, en dramatik çatışmalar, silahlar ve büyü sizi, yürek parçalayıcı bir trajedi ve ilham verici bir yeniden doğuşla dolu, nefes kesici ve beklenmedik bir sona götürecek.

Güçlü atmosferi ve komplike karakterleriyle GÖLGELER DİYARI, şövalyeler ve savaşçılar, krallar ve lortlar, onur ve mertlik, büyü, kader, canavarlar ve ejderhaların sürükleyici bir efsanesi.

“Felsefe Yüzüğü serisinden sonra yaşamak için bir neden kalmadığını düşünüyorsanız yanılıyorsunuz.

ŞÖVALYELERİN MIZRAK DÖVÜŞÜ’nde Thorgrin ve kardeşleri denizde Guwayne’in izini sürerler ve onu Işık Adası’na kadar izlerler. Ancak yerle bir olmuş adaya ve ölmek üzere olan Ragon’a vardıklarında çok geç kalmış olabilirler.

Darius kendisini İmparatorluk başkentine ve gelmişi geçmiş en büyük arenaya getirilmiş halde bulur. Onu bir savaşçıya dönüştürecek ve imkânsızı başarmasını sağlayıp hayatta kalmasına yardım edecek gizemli bir adam tarafından eğitilir. Ancak başkent arenası Darius’un görmediği hiçbir şeye benzememektedir ve zorlu rakipleri onun bile yenemeyeceği kadar güçlü olabilir.

Gwendolyn Yamacın kraliyet sarayının ailevi ilişkilerine gömülür, çünkü Kral ve Kraliçe ondan bir iyilik isterler. Yamacın geleceğini değiştirebilecek sırları ortaya çıkarmak ve Thorgrin’le Guwayne’i kurtarabilecek bir göreve çıkan Gwen derinlere indikçe öğrendikleriyle şok geçirir.

Erec ve Alistair’in bağları nehirden yukarı yelek açıp, İmparatorluğun kalbine doğru gittikçe derinleşir;  Volusia’yı bulup Gwendolyn’i kurtarmaya kararlıdırlar… Bu arada, Godfrey ve ekibi arkadaşlarının intikamını almaya niyetli bir biçimde Volusia’da karmaşa yaratırlar. Volusia ise istikrarsız banket dört bir yandan saldırıya uğradığında, İmparatorluğu yönetmenin ne anlama geldiğini anlar.

ŞÖVALYELERİN MIZRAK DÖVÜŞÜ sofistike dünya oluşumuyla ve özellikleriyle arkadaşlara ve aşıklara, rakiplere ve kur yapanlara, şövalyelere ve ejderhalara, entrikalara ve politik entrikalara, reşit olmaya, kırılan kalplere, aldatmacaya, hırsa ve ihanete dair destansı bir öykü.

ÖLÜMLÜLERİN RÜYASI 'nde, Thorgrin ve kardeşleri korsanların esaretinden kurtulup denizde mahsur kalan Guwayne'i arayışlarına devam ediyorlar. Beklenmedik arkadaş ve düşmanlarla, sihir ve silahla, ejderhalar ve adamlarla karşılaşıyorlar. Acaba tüm bunlar kader yolculuklarının yönünü değiştirecek mi? Guwayne'i nihayet bulabilecekler mi?

Darius ve arkadaşları halkın katliamından kurtulurken kendilerini İmparatorluk Arenası'na tutsak olarak atılırken buluyorlar. Birbirlerine zincirlenmiş halde, en akla gelmeyecek rakiplerle karşılaşırken hayatta kalmak için tek umutları ayakta kalıp birlikte savaş vermeleri olacak.

Godfrey ve ekibi bir kez daha tutsak alınıp idama götürülürken kaçışı denemek için son bir şansa erişiyorlar. İhanete uğradıktan sonra istedikleri şey sadece kaçmak değil artık, intikam.

Volusia, İmparatorluk başkentini alıp zaptetmeye uğraşırken dört bir yandan kuşatılıyor. Kendini bir Tanrıça olarak ispatlayıp İmparatorluk'un Üstün Hükümdarı olmak istiyorsa daha önce haberi bile olmadığı daha güçlü bir sihri çağırması gerekecek.

NOW THE ACCLAIMED HBO SERIES GAME OF THRONES—THE MASTERPIECE THAT BECAME A CULTURAL PHENOMENON
 
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King’s Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert’s name. There his family dwells in peace and comfort: his proud wife, Catelyn; his sons Robb, Brandon, and Rickon; his daughters Sansa and Arya; and his bastard son, Jon Snow. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse—unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season.
 
Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances. Now Robert is riding north to Winterfell, bringing his queen, the lovely but cold Cersei, his son, the cruel, vainglorious Prince Joffrey, and the queen’s brothers Jaime and Tyrion of the powerful and wealthy House Lannister—the first a swordsman without equal, the second a dwarf whose stunted stature belies a brilliant mind. All are heading for Winterfell and a fateful encounter that will change the course of kingdoms.
 
Meanwhile, across the Narrow Sea, Prince Viserys, heir of the fallen House Targaryen, which once ruled all of Westeros, schemes to reclaim the throne with an army of barbarian Dothraki—whose loyalty he will purchase in the only coin left to him: his beautiful yet innocent sister, Daenerys.
Rock stars and rap gods. Comedy legends and A-list actors. Supermodels and centerfolds. Moguls and mobsters. A president.

Over his unrivaled four-decade career in radio, Howard Stern has interviewed thousands of personalities—discussing sex, relationships, money, fame, spirituality, and success with the boldest of bold-faced names. But which interviews are his favorites? It’s one of the questions he gets asked most frequently. Howard Stern Comes Again delivers his answer.

This book is a feast of conversation and more, as between the lines Stern offers his definitive autobiography—a magnum opus of confession and personal exploration. Tracy Morgan opens up about his near-fatal car crash. Lady Gaga divulges her history with cocaine. Madonna reminisces on her relationship with Tupac Shakur. Bill Murray waxes philosophical on the purpose of life. Jerry Seinfeld offers a master class on comedy. Harvey Weinstein denies the existence of the so-called casting couch. An impressive array of creative visionaries weigh in on what Stern calls “the climb”—the stories of how they struggled and eventually prevailed. As he writes in the introduction, “If you’re having trouble finding motivation in life and you’re looking for that extra kick in the ass, you will find it in these pages.”

Interspersed throughout are rare selections from the Howard Stern Show archives with Donald Trump that depict his own climb: transforming from Manhattan tabloid fixture to reality TV star to president of the United States. Stern also tells of his Moby Dick-like quest to land an interview with Hillary Clinton in the run-up to the 2016 election—one of many newly written revelations from the author. He speaks with extraordinary candor about a variety of subjects, including his overwhelming insecurity early in his career, his revolutionary move from terrestrial radio to SiriusXM, and his belief in the power of psychotherapy.

As Stern insightfully notes in the introduction: “The interviews collected here represent my best work and show my personal evolution. But they don’t just show my evolution. Gathered together like this, they show the evolution of popular culture over the past quarter century.”
Jane Hawk’s one-woman war comes to an explosive climax as the rogue FBI agent gambles everything against a terrifying conspiracy, for vengeance, for justice, and for humanity’s freedom—from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Silent Corner.
 
“Jane Hawk is arguably the best character Koontz has created. . . . Simply put, wow.”—Associated Press
 
A visionary young filmmaker hunted for sport across a vast Colorado ranch by the celebrated billionaire at the heart of a monstrous cabal . . .
 
A brilliant computer hacker slipping through top-secret databases a whisper ahead of security trackers, gathering the facts to fight the all-powerful perpetrators of mass murder . . .
 
A pair of brutal operators, methodically shadowing their targets with every cutting-edge tool in the arsenal of today’s surveillance state . . .
 
A sequence of quiet heroes—everyday citizens—stepping up, stepping forward, intent on countering the advancing darkness . . .
 
A Vegas mob boss teamed with a homicidal sociopath, circling a beloved boy and his protectors, aiming to secure him as leverage against his fugitive mother . . .
 
And that fugitive mother herself, ex-agent Jane Hawk, closing in on the malevolent architects of ruin she has stalked as they stalk her, prepared to sacrifice herself to finally bring them down.
 
These are the people and circumstances of The Night Window, the thrilling new novel in Dean Koontz’s acclaimed Jane Hawk series. Replete—and then some—with the ingenious twists, the spellbinding action, the resonant themes, the sheer heart that have characterized Jane’s journey from the start, The Night Window follows its extraordinary heroine to her long-sought objective, in a stunning, unforgettable finale. 
 
Don’t miss any of Dean Koontz’s gripping Jane Hawk thrillers:
THE SILENT CORNER • THE WHISPERING ROOM • THE CROOKED STAIRCASE • THE FORBIDDEN DOOR • THE NIGHT WINDOW
 
“The spectacular finale to Jane’s story . . . will hit series fans with all the impact of a carefully calibrated hammer blow.”—Booklist (starred review)
 
“The best installment in the series since the first . . . [Koontz] revs it up with entertaining encounters and offbeat humor.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
From the author of the international mega-bestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck comes a counterintuitive guide to the problems of hope.

We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it’s ever been—we are freer, healthier and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked—the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history, when we have access to technology, education and communication our ancestors couldn’t even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness.

What’s going on? If anyone can put a name to our current malaise and help fix it, it’s Mark Manson. In 2016, Manson published The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck, a book that brilliantly gave shape to the ever-present, low-level hum of anxiety that permeates modern living. He showed us that technology had made it too easy to care about the wrong things, that our culture had convinced us that the world owed us something when it didn’t—and worst of all, that our modern and maddening urge to always find happiness only served to make us unhappier. Instead, the “subtle art” of that title turned out to be a bold challenge: to choose your struggle; to narrow and focus and find the pain you want to sustain. The result was a book that became an international phenomenon, selling millions of copies worldwide while becoming the #1 bestseller in 13 different countries.

Now, in Everthing Is F*cked, Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits, he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He openly defies our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom—and even of hope itself.

With his usual mix of erudition and where-the-f*ck-did-that-come-from humor, Manson takes us by the collar and challenges us to be more honest with ourselves and connected with the world in ways we probably haven’t considered before.

From five-time #1 New York Times bestselling author, FOX News star, and radio host Mark R. Levin comes a groundbreaking and enlightening book that shows how the great tradition of the American free press has degenerated into a standardless profession that has squandered the faith and trust of the American public, not through actions of government officials, but through its own abandonment of reportorial integrity and objective journalism.

Unfreedom of the Press is not just another book about the press. Levin shows how those entrusted with news reporting today are destroying freedom of the press from within: “not government oppression or suppression,” he writes, but self-censorship, group-think, bias by omission, and passing off opinion, propaganda, pseudo-events, and outright lies as news.

With the depth of historical background for which his books are renowned, Levin takes the reader on a journey through the early American patriot press, which proudly promoted the principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, followed by the early decades of the Republic during which newspapers around the young country were open and transparent about their fierce allegiance to one political party or the other.

It was only at the start of the Progressive Era and the twentieth century that the supposed “objectivity of the press” first surfaced, leaving us where we are today: with a partisan party-press overwhelmingly aligned with a political ideology but hypocritically engaged in a massive untruth as to its real nature.
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER that is a *MUST-READ BOOK* for US WEEKLY, VOGUE, NPR, OPRAHMAG.COM, BUZZFEED, and more!

What happens when America's First Son falls in love with the Prince of Wales?

When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius—his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There's only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse.

Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations and begs the question: Can love save the world after all? Where do we find the courage, and the power, to be the people we are meant to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through? Casey McQuiston's Red, White & Royal Blue proves: true love isn't always diplomatic.

"I took this with me wherever I went and stole every second I had to read! Absorbing, hilarious, tender, sexy—this book had everything I crave. I’m jealous of all the readers out there who still get to experience Red, White & Royal Blue for the first time!" - Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author of The Unhoneymooners

"Red, White & Royal Blue is outrageously fun. It is romantic, sexy, witty, and thrilling. I loved every second." - Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & The Six

Surprise... your target.

Kill... your enemy.

Vanish... without a trace.

From Pulitzer Prize finalist Annie Jacobsen, the untold story of the CIA's secret paramilitary units.
When diplomacy fails, and war is unwise, the president calls on the CIA's Special Activities Division, a highly-classified branch of the CIA and the most effective, black operations force in the world. Originally known as the president's guerrilla warfare corps, SAD conducts risky and ruthless operations that have evolved over time to defend America from its enemies. Almost every American president since World War II has asked the CIA to conduct sabotage, subversion and, yes, assassination.

With unprecedented access to forty-two men and women who proudly and secretly worked on CIA covert operations from the dawn of the Cold War to the present day, along with declassified documents and deep historical research, Pulitzer Prize finalist Annie Jacobsen unveils-like never before-a complex world of individuals working in treacherous environments populated with killers, connivers and saboteurs. Despite Hollywood notions of off-book operations and external secret hires, covert action is actually one piece in a colossal foreign policy machine.

Written with the pacing of a thriller, SURPRISE, KILL, VANISH brings to vivid life the sheer pandemonium and chaos, as well as the unforgettable human will to survive and the intellectual challenge of not giving up hope that define paramilitary and intelligence work. Jacobsen's exclusive interviews-with members of the CIA's Senior Intelligence Service (equivalent to the Pentagon's generals), its counterterrorism chiefs, targeting officers, and Special Activities Division's Ground Branch operators who conduct today's close-quarters killing operations around the world-reveal,for the first time, the enormity of this shocking, controversial and morally complex terrain. Is the CIA's paramilitary army America's weaponized strength, or a liability to its principled standing in the world? Every operation reported in this book, however unsettling, is legal.

Cherry seems to resent Laura, driving a wedge between mother and son-until one day Daniel is injured in a terrible accident. Six months later, with Daniel still in a coma and facing death, Laura makes a fateful decision-and carries out an astonishing deceit. A handsome doctor for a husband, with a trust fund and a family villa in Saint-Tropez-it was all supposed to be Cherry's. Now, instead of living with Daniel in his impeccable home, she's jobless and broke. And then Cherry discovers Laura's stunning deception. But Cherry is too clever, too ambitious to let her get away with it. She has already transformed herself into Daniel's dream woman. Now she'll become Laura's worst nightmare.Author Michelle Frances masterfully weaves both women's perspectives into this gripping, artfully plotted psychological thriller, propelling the reader through one dark twist after another toward a shocking, unforgettable finale.
