A page-turning thriller of life and death in the moral maze of the post-9/11 world from the international bestselling author and "best spy novelist ever" (Philadelphia Inquirer) The rules are simple. Break up your shape. Hide your smell. Never show your silhouette. Check the surfaces of your kit. Space the movements of your team. Use the shadows. Danny "Badger" Baxter has a talent for surveillance. He's always followed the rules. Until now, they've kept him alive. But now Badger has a bigger job than photographing dissident Northern Irish Republicans in muddy Ulster fields, or Islamic extremists on rainswept Yorkshire moors. MI6 have a plan to assassinate the Engineer—a brilliant maker of Improvised Explosive Devices, the roadside bombs which account for 80% of Allied casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan. The spooks know he's planning to leave his home in Iran. They just need to find out when and where he's traveling. So Badger finds himself on the wrong side of the Iranian border, burdened with a partner he loathes, lying under a merciless sun in a mosquito-infested marsh, observing the house. If things go wrong, as far as Her Majesty's Government is concerned, his part in the plot is completely deniable. With A Deniable Death, Gerald Seymour expertly explores the moral compromises of the secret world upon which we rely for our everyday security - and the amazing reserves of courage which ordinary people can find in extraordinary circumstances.

Susan Whitcomb, a brilliant New York trial lawyer, has learned her craft from the best in the field—Professor Farlan Amory Adams, her Columbia law teacher, millionaire mentor, and eloquent would-be lover. She needs every shred of the rigorous mental training he has given her when, without warning, she is catapulted into the vicious world of international terrorism. Susan’s well-ordered Manhattan life comes to a sudden end with the news that her father, an army general based in Rome, has been assassinated. When she, too, becomes a target of the terrorists, a mysterious, driven young man called David Smith presents himself to her in Rome and tells her he has been assigned to protect her from the dangers that will follow her back to America. And this is only the beginning…. As the story develops, Susan becomes a pawn in a deadly game of escalating complexity, brutality, and suspense in which life, love, and loyalty all hang in the balance. The millions of readers who were riveted by Sol Stein’s previous best-sellers, The Magician and The Touch of Treason, will recognize the hand of a master storyteller in this psychologically dense and driving thriller. Not for nothing did the New York Times write of his work: “If you read a Sol Stein novel while walking, you will walk into a wall.”

As far as Colin Berry's family were concerned, he'd gone to Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban to market the low-cost modular housing that his engineering company manufactured. The truth was much more complicated. In fact, Berry, a former soldier, had been recruited by British intelligence to join an operation to secretly buy back weapons systems which had been delivered to the Mujahideen during their struggle against the Soviets. Berry spent months on a gruelling operation, organising local teams to track down weapons in an effort to prevent them from falling into the hands of al-Qaeda. But, in February 2003, it all went terribly wrong. Concerned for his own security, Berry made preparations to leave the country. He was packing his bags when he got a call: two Afghan intermediaries wanted to see him. He agreed to a final meeting in his hotel room but by the time it had finished both Afghans were dead and Berry himself was seriously wounded. In THE DENIABLE AGENT, Colin Berry finally reveals the truth about what happened in the Intercontinental Hotel that night and how he spent nearly a year in a stinking Afghan jail, being beaten and tortured. All the while, the British Embassy in Kabul, and his handlers back in London, barely lifted a finger to help him, despite the efforts of his wife Alison to mobilise support.

From Here to Diversity: Globalization and Intercultural Dialogues sees interculturalism as movement, transit, travel, and the dynamics between cultures. Contemporary intercultural travel is a global journey, a circumnavigation at the speed of light that underwrites all the comings and goings, the departures and arrivals, the transmissions and receptions that are implicit in this title. Hence, From Here to Diversity examines the motivations, characteristics and implications of cultural interactions in their perpetual movement, devoid of spatial or temporal borders, in a dangerous but stimulating indefinition of limits. In the contemporary intercultural dialogue, new voices are making themselves heard, as valuable sources of study: the voices of women; non-occidentals; the non-powerful; forgotten narratives of a past that was as intercultural as the present (after all, what is colonialism other than a perverse form of interculturality?); global entertainment; tourism; oral literature; diaries; mythical narratives; the cinema; ethnography; and new teachings, among so many others. Because this project is also intercultural at its source and subject, From Here to Diversity: Globalization and Intercultural Dialogues adds to the coherence of the project by including contributions from the most wide-ranging backgrounds and nationalities, without fear of the alterity that, after all, we propose to study.
