For 30 years, Robert Ludlum's novels have set the standard for the finest in international intrigue and suspense. With an unbroken string of bestsellers in almost every country in the world, Ludlum's books have been read by hundreds of millions of readers, and are acknowledged as classics in the field. Now, after the bestselling The Hades Factor and The Cassandra Compact comes the third thrilling novel in the Covert-One series - Robert Ludlum's The Paris Option.

An explosion in the middle of the night reduces part of Paris' esteemed Pasteur Institute to rubble. Among the missing is the world's top computer scientist, Emile Chambord. Even though a terrorist group claims responsibility for the bombing, many in the intelligence community suspect the scientist was actually kidnapped and the bomb set to divert attention. Chambord may have been close to devising a working molecular computer which, in the wrong hands, could be the most deadly weapon in the world. If he were now in the hands of hostile forces, the consequences would be unspeakably dire.

From Paris to London, Brussels, and Algiers, Covert-One agent Jon Smith searches for traces of the scientist and the ambitious forces behind the bombing and theft. With the help of MI5 agent Peter Howell, CIA agent Randi Russell, and cyber-wizard Marty Zellerbach, Smith uncovers a web of deception that threatens to reshape Europe and is one step away from destroying the United States.

James Penney's New Identity and Other Stories: James Penney's New Identity, Other Side of the Mirror, The Hunt for Dmitri, At the Drop of a Hat, and Diplomatic Constraints
James Penney’s New Identity by Lee Child Lee Child's debut novel was Killing Floor, a first- person narrative introducing his series character Jack Reacher. Child’s second book, Die Trying featured third-person narration and a classic high-stakes, multi-strand thriller structure. But, in its first draft, that structure went one strand too far. There was a character—James Penney—who had an appealing introduction and back story, but who clearly didn't have any valid place to go. So the strand wound up on the metaphorical cutting room floor—until now. Other Stories The Other Side of the Mirror by Eric Van Lustbader Lustbader wrote the story after one day re-discovering The Outsider, by philosopher/novelist Colin Wilson, in his library. The Outsider had been a seminal book for Lustbader, reading it again he found new meaning in his own work, which is reflected in The Other Side of the Mirror, a story about a spy— an outsider, if ever there was one—and the terrible toll secrecy and lies take on him. The Hunt for Dmitri by Gayle Lynds Gayle Lynds wrote her first novel, a modern espionage thriller, Masquerade, in the mid- 1990s. The heroine, Sarah Walker, was a magazine journalist who had the misfortune of having an uncle who was the notorious assassin called the Carnivore, although she did not know this at the time. The Coil, is novel about the Carnivore's only child, Liz Sansborough. A former CIA operative, Liz had played a pivotal role in Masquerade. At the Drop of a Hat by Denise Hamilton In 1993, Hamilton was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to teach journalism in Macedonia. Hamilton widely toured the South Balkans and fell in love with the small, quirky nation of Albania, which at that time was just emerging from fifty years of communist isolation. As Hamilton writes in At the Drop of a Hat, there were few ways in and out of Albania but she managed to hitchhike into Tirana with some Albanian journalists she met at a conference on beautiful Lake Ohrid, at the Macedonia-Albania border. Diplomatic Constraints by Raelynn Hillhouse While researching her second novel, Outsourced, Hillhouse came across a little-known event that kept nagging at her. She knew her main character, Stella, had somehow been involved in an incident that marked the first time the United States was targeted by fundamental Islamic terrorists. Two weeks after American hostages were seized in Iran in 1979, the U.S. embassy in Pakistan was over-run by Islamic extremists, razed, and two Americans and two foreign nationals lost their lives. This all-but-forgotten incident was actually a key event in the origins of modem terrorism, and was pivotal for Stella, whose life would become entangled in the complex struggle.

The Assassins (The Judd Ryder Books)

Six master assassins, each a legend in the dark corners of international espionage, banded together to steal a fortune in the midst of a war zone. But the mission went tragically wrong, and they retreated into the shadows―until now…

Former military spy Judd Ryder is walking in his own Washington, D.C. neighborhood when he spots someone coming out the front door of his home―who looks just like him, and is wearing his clothes. Just as Ryder starts to trail him, the imposter is killed in a hit-and-run that’s no accident. Was the man the intended victim, or Ryder himself?
Ryder learns that a link to his double’s murder is an infamous Cold War assassin: Code name, the Carnivore. Two of the last people to see the Carnivore were Ryder and CIA trainee Eva Blake, and someone is using them to lure him out. Now, from D.C. all the way to Baghdad, the league of assassins will wage a final battle―even against one another―in a death match for Saddam Hussein’s long-missing billion-dollar fortune. And Judd and Eva are caught in the crossfire...

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.

Watchlist: Two Serial Thrillers in One Killer Book
From International Thriller Writers comes Watchlist: two powerful novellas featuring the same thrill cast of characters in one major suspenseful package. The Chopin Manuscript and then The Copper Bracelet were a collaboration by some of the world’s greatest thriller writers, including Lee Child, Joseph Finder, Lisa Scottoline, and Jeffery Deaver, who conceived the characters and set the plot in motion. The other authors each wrote a chapter and Deaver then completed what he started, bringing both novellas to their startling conclusions.

In the first novella, The Chopin Manuscript, former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, locked within its handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. As he races from Poland to America to uncover the mystery of the manuscript, Middleton will be accused of murder, pursued by federal agents, and targeted by assassins. But the greatest threat will come from a shadowy figure from his past: the man known only as Faust.
 
Harold Middleton returns in The Copper Bracelet–the explosive sequel to The Chopin Manuscript–as he’s drawn into an international terror plot that threatens to send India and Pakistan into full-scale nuclear war. Careening from Nice to London and Moscow to Kashmir to prevent nuclear disaster, Middleton is unaware that his prey has changed and the act of terror is far more diabolical than he knows. Will he discover the identity of the Scorpion in time to halt an event that will pit the United States, China, and Russia against each other at the brink of World War III?
