No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Daniel Silva delivers another spellbinding international thriller -- one that finds the legendary Gabriel Allon grappling with an ISIS mastermind. Legendary spy and art restorer Gabriel Allon is poised to become the chief of Israel's secret intelligence service. But on the eve of his promotion, events conspire to lure him into the field for one final operation. ISIS has detonated a massive bomb in the Marais district of Paris, and a desperate French government wants Gabriel to eliminate the man responsible before he can strike again. They call him Saladin ... He is a terrorist mastermind whose ambition is as grandiose as his nom de guerre, a man so elusive that even his nationality is not known. Shielded by sophisticated encryption software, his network communicates in total secrecy, leaving the West blind to his planning -- and leaving Gabriel no choice but to insert an agent into the most dangerous terrorist group the world has ever known. Natalie Mizrahi is an extraordinary young doctor as brave as she is beautiful. At Gabriel's behest, she will pose as an ISIS recruit in waiting, a ticking time bomb, a black widow out for blood. 'Literate, top-notch action' Kirkus Reviews 'If you like Jason Bourne and Jack Reacher, get to know Gabriel Allon' Australian Women's Weekly 'Allon is a great political operative, but Silva is an even greater writer' Huffington Post

Number One Bestseller The incredible story of the murder which gripped the nation. When Tom Nevin was brutally murdered in Jack White's Inn on the morning of 19 March 1996 there was widespread mourning for the man known as a 'gentle giant'. And none seemed as grief-stricken as his widow, Catherine. She stood by the graveside holding a single red rose, the classic symbol of a lost love. But even as that picture occupied the front page of the nation's newspapers, the rumours had started. Four years later Catherine Nevin stood in the dock and listened impassively as a jury found her guilty of murdering her husband, and guilty on three counts of soliciting others to murder. The trial had kept the entire country enthralled, as every day more bizarre stories emerged: contract killers, money laundering, the IRA, sexual affairs, plastic surgery, contacts in high places. It had all the ingredients of a bestselling thriller, but this was real life, and with a real victim. The Black Widow is the story of a woman who wanted it all and didn't care how she got it. Niamh O'Connor, a journalist who sat through every day of the record-breaking trial, explores the personality behind the glamorous mask, the real motives for the murder, and, in a series of revealing interviews, unravels the web of intrigue, deception and violence that brought the woman who once gave deportment classes to schoolchildren to the cells of Mountjoy.

The Black Widow almost got away with murder. But then her sister-in-law became suspicious... The infamous Black Widow case shocked the nation. An average-looking suburban housewife carefully staged her husband's 'suicide'. At first it looked like she might get away with murder, but then her sister-in-law, Lee-Anne Cartier, became suspicious and started gathering evidence and presenting it to the police. Unfortunately they didn't believe it was enough to get a conviction and signed the death off as suicide. Lee-Anne then drove the case at the inquest and a finding of 'No proof of suicide' was pivotal in getting the police to reopen the case. Helen Milner, who became known as the Black Widow, was eventually convicted of murder and is now serving out her sentence in Arohata Prison. This book tells how Lee-Anne persevered and put together many strands of information to crack the case wide open.

Readers truly don't want to miss this twist-and-turn mystery sure to be a best seller. Delia is greedy, insane, genius, jealous of Celeste, the oldest of her three sisters, and the apple of her father's eye. Different than most who desire the American dream of family, career, long life, love, and happiness, Delia seeks each opportunity to achieve wealth—no matter who it destroys. She will proceed with her evil plans without guilt. At her own father's memorial service, a former well known contractor, she corners a client who owes debt. 'Hello Mrs. Champion, glad you could attend the memorial service. Did you remember to bring the money you owe Dad's account?' The look on her face I will never forget. Shocked. Why was she shocked that I asked her that question? Mrs. Champion responded with a quirky voice. 'One of our three children has been sick, Miss Delia. The bills have been very high, but if you will ask your mother, she will tell you I cleaned all her windows along with many other chores and errands she needed. She said the bill was covered.' I responded, 'Don't make a scene. Surely you don't think I would ask my mother a question concerning prior bills today of all days? The gold locket around your neck will compensate for the time being. What I am saying, Mrs. Champion, is reach around your neck and unfastened the pendant. It will drop to the floor. We will both reach for it. Only I will pick it up. Understand?' Mrs. Champion groaned. 'But please, Miss Delia, it contains a small but sentimental picture of my children.' Gentle statements compared to what lies ahead at the hands of Delia. 'Karen Paulette's writing is vivid and takes the reader right to the scene.' Noel Thrasher, Tate Publishing
