Big and fast.' - Michael Connelly, author of the Harry Bosch series 'Yes, The President is Missing is fiction - it's a thriller - but James Patterson and I have come up with three of the most frightening days in the history of the presidency. And it could really happen... These days, the seemingly impossible can happen. And it happens so fast. I believe that readers will not soon forget President Jonathan Duncan and his story.' - Bill Clinton 'Needless to say, we had some great conversations about the presidency, what life in Washington is really like, and about the state of America and the rest of the world.' - James Patterson 'I felt like I was right along with the characters for the shocking twists and turns you'll never guess are coming.

The Night Agent: A Novel

Author: Matthew Quirk Narrator: Chris Andrew Ciulla Release Date: January 2019

To find a Russian mole in the White House, an FBI agent must question everything. . . and trust no one. To save America from a catastrophic betrayal, an idealistic young FBI agent must stop a Russian mole in the White House in this exhilarating political thriller reminiscent of the early novels of John Grisham and David Baldacci. No one was more surprised than FBI Agent Peter Sutherland when he’s tapped to work in the White House Situation Room. From his earliest days as a surveillance specialist, Peter has scrupulously done everything by the book, hoping his record will help him escape the taint of his past. When Peter was a boy, his father, a section chief in FBI counterintelligence, was suspected of selling secrets to the Russians—a catastrophic breach that had cost him his career, his reputation, and eventually his life. Peter knows intimately how one broken rule can cost lives. Nowhere is he more vigilant than in this room, the sanctum of America’s secrets. Staffing the night action desk, his job is monitoring an emergency line for a call that has not—and might never—come. Until tonight. At 1:05 a.m. the phone rings. A terrified young woman named Rose tells Peter that her aunt and uncle have just been murdered and that the killer is still in the house with her. Before their deaths, they gave her this phone number with urgent instructions: “Tell them OSPREY was right. It’s happening. . . “ The call thrusts Peter into the heart of a conspiracy years in the making, involving a Russian mole at the highest levels of the government. Anyone in the White House could be the traitor. Anyone could be corrupted. To save the nation, Peter must take the rules into his own hands and do the right thing, no matter the cost. He plunges into a desperate hunt for the traitor—a treacherous odyssey that pits him and Rose against some of Russia’s most skilled and ruthless operatives and the full force of the FBI itself. Peter knows that the wider a secret is broadcast, the more dangerous it gets for the people at the center. With the fate of the country on the line, he and Rose must evade seasoned assassins and maneuver past jolting betrayals to find the shocking truth—and stop the threat from inside before it’s too late.

Author: Olen Steinhauer Narrator: Ari Fliakos Release Date: August 2018

'a thought-provoking political thriller, a dark story for dark times.' - Washington Post In The Middleman, Olen Steinhauer, New York Times bestselling author of ten titles, including The Tourist and The Cairo Affair, delivers a compelling portrait of a nation on the edge of revolution, and the deepest motives of the men and women on the opposite sides of the divide. One day in the early summer of 2017, about four hundred people disappear from their lives. They leave behind cell phones, credit cards, jobs, houses, families--everything--all on the same day. Where have they gone? Why? The only answer, for weeks, is silence. Kevin Moore is one of them. Former military, disaffected, restless, Kevin leaves behind his retail job in San Francisco, sends a good-bye text to his mother, dumps his phone and wallet into a trash can, and disappears. The movement calls itself the Massive Brigade, and they believe change isn't coming fast enough to America. But are they a protest organization, a political movement, or a terrorist group? What do they want? The FBI isn't taking any chances. Special Agent Rachel Proulx has been following the growth of left-wing political groups in the U.S. since the fall of 2016, and is very familiar with Martin Bishop, the charismatic leader of the Massive Brigade. But she needs her colleagues to take her seriously in order to find these people before they put their plan--whatever it is--into action. What Rachel uncovers will shock the entire nation, and the aftermath of her investigation will reverberate through the FBI to the highest levels of government. More praise for The Middleman: 'The Middleman is smart and entertaining and consistently intriguing' - New York Times Book Review 'The Middleman, with its abundance of multidimensional characters and political viewpoints, is a thought-provoking novel that never ceases to excite as a thriller.' - Wall Street Journal

The Means: A Novel

Author: Douglas Brunt Narrator: Cassandra Campbell, George Newbern Release Date: September 2014

Tom Pauley is a well-liked attorney in Durham, North Carolina, with all the right opinions but no political ambitions. He's the perfect vessel for the limping GOP in that state, who have their sights set on using Pauley to retake the Governor's mansion, and maybe one day, the presidency. Mitchell Mason is the president-elect of the United States, a blue-blooded son of a senator who has finally surpassed his father's achievements, and done it without compromising his own morals. He runs the White House with a personal touch, desperate to set himself apart from his predecessor John Hammermill, and duplicate none of the missteps of the previous administration. Samantha Davis is a lawyer-turned-reporter, once again working her way up from the bottom in a cutthroat industry. She's determined and brilliant, and her dogged pursuit of a decade-old story could tip off a huge political scandal. During the fervor of a campaign, all three are on a collision course that leads to the White House. And when the prize is the United States presidency, the ends justify . . . THE MEANS.

The Man From Beijing Audiobook

The Man From Beijing

Author: Henning Mankell Narrator: Sean Barrett Release Date: February 2011

One cold January day the police are called to a sleepy little hamlet in the north of Sweden where they discover a savagely murdered man lying in the snow. As they begin their investigation they notice that the village seems eerily quiet and deserted. Going from house to house, looking for witnesses, they uncover a crime unprecedented in Swedish history. When Judge Birgitta Roslin reads about the massacre, she realises that she has a family connection to one of the couples involved and decides to investigate. A nineteenth-century diary and a red silk ribbon found in the forest nearby are the only clues. What Birgitta eventually uncovers leads her into an international web of corruption and a story of vengeance that stretches back over a hundred years, linking China and the USA of the 1860s with modern-day Beijing, Zimbabwe and Mozambique, and coming to a shocking climax in London's Chinatown. The Man from Beijing is both a gripping and perceptive political thriller and a compelling detective story. It shows Henning Mankell at the height of his powers, handling a broad historical canvas and pressing international issues with his exceptional gifts for insight and chilling suspense.
