Product Description
Customer Reviews
<b>Winner of the Crime Writers Association Gold Dagger Award, this chilling police procedural is a masterpiece of<b> psychological suspense. </b></b><br><br>Italian Police Commissioner Aurelio Zen is dispatched to investigate the kidnapping of Ruggiero Miletti, a powerful Perugian industrialist. But nobody much wants Zen to succeed: not the local authorities, who view him as an interloper, and certainly not Miletti's children, who seem content to let the head of the family languish in the hands of his abductors--if he's still alive. Was Miletti truly the victim of professionals?  Or might his kidnapper be someone closer to home: his preening son Daniele, with his million-lire wardrobe and his profitable drug business?  His daughter, Cinzia, whose vapid beauty conceals a devastating secret? The perverse Silvio, or the eldest son Pietro, the unscrupulous fixer who manipulates the plots of others for his own ends? As Zen tries to unravel this rat's nest of family intrigue and official complicity, Michael Dibdin gives us one of his most accomplished thrillers.

<b><i>Red Sparrow </i>is now a major motion picture starring Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton!</b><BR> <BR>The thrilling sequel to <i>Red Sparrow</i>—CIA insider Jason Matthews’s compulsively readable <i>New York Times </i>bestseller and Edgar Award winner—featuring Russian spy Dominika Egorova and CIA agent Nate Nash “shimmers with authenticity. The villains are richly drawn...the scenes of them on the job are beyond chilling” (<i>The New York Times Book Review</i>).<BR><BR>Captain Dominika Egorova of the Russian Intelligence Service despises the oligarchs, crooks, and thugs of Putin’s Russia—but what no one knows is that she is also working for the CIA. Her “sparrow” training in the art of sexual espionage further complicates the mortal risks she must take, as does her love for her handler Nate Nash—a shared lust that is as dangerous as treason.<BR> <BR> As Dominika expertly dodges exposure, she deals with a murderously psychotic boss, survives an Iranian assassination attempt and attempts to rescue an arrested double agent—and thwart Putin’s threatening flirtations. A grand, wildly entertaining ride through the steel-trap mind of a CIA insider, <i>Palace of Treason </i>is a story “as suspenseful and cinematic as the best spy movies” (<i>The Philadelphia Inquirer</i>)—one that feels fresh and so possible, in fact, that it’s doubtful this novel can ever be published in Russia.
