The Kremlin's Candidate: A Novel

The Kremlin's Candidate: A Novel
Matthews, Jason, 1951-

Russian counterintelligence chief Colonel Dominika Egorova has been a recruited asset of the CIA, stealing Kremlin secrets for her CIA handler Nate Nash for over seven years. Their forbidden and tumultuous love affair continues, mortally dangerous for them both, but irresistible. In Washington, a newly-installed US administration is selecting its Cabinet members. Dominika hears a whisper of a closely-held Kremlin operation to place a mole inside a high intelligence position. But it's worse than that: One of the three candidates under consideration has been a paid Russian spy for a decade, selling precious US secrets. If the Kremlin's candidate for the position is confirmed, the Russians will have access to all the names of assets spying for CIA in Moscow, including Dominika's. But which of the three individuals is the mole? Dominika's report triggers a desperate mole hunt before she's exposed and arrested. Resisting all suggestions to defect and save herself, Dominika recklessly immerses herself in the palace intrigues of the Kremlin, searching for the mole's name, and stealing as many of President Putin's secrets for her CIA handlers before her time runs out--even as Putin's dangerous interest in her grows. The treasure trove of her intelligence reporting sends Nate Nash and colleagues on desperate missions to Sevastopol, Istanbul, Khartoum, and Hong Kong.

Badenheim 1939

Badenheim 1939
Apelfeld, Aharon

It is spring 1939 in the age of anxiety. In months Europe will be Hitler's. And Badenheim, a resort town vaguely in the orbit of Vienna, is preparing for its summer season. The vacationers arrive as they always have, a sampling of Jewish middle-class life: the impresario Dr. Pappenheim, his musicians, and their conductor; the gay Frau Tsauberblit; the historian, Dr. Fussholdt, and his much younger wife; the "readers," twins whose passion for Rilke is featured on their program; a child prodigy; a commercial traveler; a rabbi. The list waxes as the summer wanes. To receive them in the town are the pharmacist and his worried wife, the hotelier and his large staff, the pastry shop owner and his irritable baker, Sally and Gertie (two quite respectable prostitutes), and, mysteriously, the bland inspectors from the "Sanitation Department."

The American Café
Hoklotubbe, Sara Sue, 1952-

Sadie Walela follows in the footsteps of her great-aunt Vera and discovers life as an entrepreneur is not easy. On her first day she is threatened by Pearl Mobley, the town's resident crazy woman and then Goldie Ray--the former owner of the American Cafe--turns up dead and Pearl confesses to the crime before killing herself, leaving too many unanswered questions. Depending on the intuition and perseverance drawn from her Cherokee ancestry, Sadie sets out to get the answers. She reunites with an old friend, Lance Smith, who has just been hired as second in command on a two-man police force. Sadie and Lance--together with an unlikely cast of characters, including a mysterious Creek Indian named Red who seems to always be underfoot, the police chief whose radio handle is Deputy Dawg, Pearl's angry Marine son just home from Iraq, and Goldie's grieving sister and alcoholic niece--all come together to create a multilayered story of denial and deceit. Uncovering motives like stories of rape, a stolen baby, and under-the-table adoption, Sadie strives to untangle old relationships and family secrets, eventually discovering she is untangling far more than a murder.
