A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

A welcome return for one of spy writing's most captivating characters, British traitor Paul Dark. Now living incognito in 1975 Stockholm, with a wife and child, believed dead by both the British Intelligence Service he betrayed and his prior Russian paymasters who wanted him silenced, he is reluctantly drawn back into the dangerous fray by political events in Rhodesia. The principal historical crux of the novel is inspired by real events involving the renegade Rhodesian white regime and its South African allies to consolidate white rule in Africa at a staged peace conference. Unwittingly assisted by a young female analyst at MI5 herself fighting against class prejudice in the ranks, Dark pursues a dangerous journey to save his family from Scandinavia to Africa while negotiating a spider's web of mixed loyalties and intrigue. Meticulously researched with shades of le Carré-level intrigue and fantastic action scenes Jack Reacher would be proud of. A thriller of the top order. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
