Summary

A “tour-de-force” espionage thriller and the New York Times–bestselling debut novel from an international bestselling master of suspense (Chicago Tribune).
 
Bestselling British novelist Clare Francis has proven again and again that she “has serious crime writing talent” (The Mail on Sunday). Collected here: a Cold War spy thriller and her debut—a military thriller set in World War II, both a New York Times and international bestseller.
 
Wolf Winter: In this “classically structured spy thriller,” two Norwegians are murdered in the Soviet wilderness (The New York Times). On a seemingly routine intelligence operation, Jan Johansen and his companion head to Finland, but when they wander over the Russian border, they are gunned down in cold blood. Halvard Starheim, an experienced explorer and Jan’s friend, is determined to find out what went wrong. Halvard is joined by Jan’s beautiful widow and a journalist who is hiding his own dangerous secret. Their journey will slowly uncover an international conspiracy—and lead to a terrifying showdown in the freezing Arctic winter.
 
“Stephen King horror and Ingmar Bergman darkness . . . A galloping good read.” —The Washington Post Book World
 
Night Sky: Three lives, caught in the turbulence of World War II, converge one fateful night on the same beach. Julie Lescaux, a young English mother, has moved to France and become perilously involved in the French Resistance. David Freyman, a German-Jewish scientist, has made a discovery that could free war-torn Europe. But Nazi spies threaten at every turn, including Paul Vasson, a former-pimp-turned-collaborator, in this “thoroughly professional wartime adventure” (The Sunday Times).
 
“A terrific thriller.” —Time Out London
