Assignment in Amsterdam
It looks like a plum job for architect Kate Benedict—she’s been sent to Amsterdam to repurpose an ancient mansion, happily assigned to work with an old friend. Should have been a lark! But it’s a catastrophe—her old friend’s going to die. And so is the caretaker. And the owner. Not to mention the owner’s personal assistant. Kate’s the only one who knows. Because she has a secret. She’s just a normal Londoner except for one tiny thing—she sees auras that predict death. This is a first, though— never has she seen so many in such a small area. Based on past experience, everyone in the house—or even attached to it—is about to die.

They re-write Egypt’s history and reveal the bizarre circumstances of Tiye’s last days.
A young girl detonates her suicide vest on a crowded London bus. Ex-SAS covert agent Gabriel Wolfe hunts the man who gave the order. His target is a psychopathic cult leader with a taste for classical music, fine wine and extreme violence. Gabriel must also face a sadistic Colombian cartel boss nicknamed “The Baptist”. Lost and alone in the cult’s compound in the Brazilian rainforest, Gabriel is tortured and brainwashed by “Père Christophe” and fitted with his own suicide bomb.
Working undercover, Wolfe travels to the US with Maitland. His brief, discover Maitland’s plan and then stop him. As he gathers intel, he teams up with an ex-Delta Force operator, Shaun Cunningham.

With the British Prime Minister due to overfly Maitland’s estate en route to a military conference, and a paramilitary force gathered in preparation for a coup, time is running out for Wolfe and Cunningham.
