Political Thriller
By James Barrington
Just released April 2014

There’s a mole in the British secret service.

A senior SIS officer is passing secrets to the Russians. With the security of Britain’s most secret computer system as stake, the intelligence agencies are racing against time to root out the traitor. But conventional detective work is too slow. An alternative strategy has to be formulated and a deception operation is set in motion to flush out the mole.

Paul Richter, an unemployed ex-Naval aviator, is the unwitting and ultimately expendable bait in the trap. But as the net closes around the traitor in France, a female Russian intelligence officer flees Moscow, seeking asylum from her British counterparts. The evidence she brings points the finger of suspicion in a very different direction. Richter soon finds himself battling against both the British security establishment and trained teams of Russian assassins with orders to kill both him and the woman he’s trying to protect. With time running out and nobody above suspicion in the 'wilderness of mirrors' that is the world of intelligence, can Richter get the most sought after asset in the spy world back to England in one piece…? Or will the 'Manhunt' end in his own death?

A beautiful, young district attorney tumbles to her death on Christmas Eve.

Police suspect suicide, but the DA’s sister, newspaper reporter Samantha Church, isn’t buying it.

Samantha discovers evidence linking her sister to a drug smuggling case and quickly learns she has stumbled onto a major news story. She must summon the courage to not only face a cartel of criminals, but her own fears and shortcomings when she is confronted by the inescapable specter of a far greater enemy—her addiction to alcohol. Samantha’s dependency has not only cost her job at a major metropolitan daily, but, worse, custody of her daughter, April.

Samantha pursues her sister’s killers, maneuvering through a minefield of intrigue deliberately set out to divert her from the truth. Despite being betrayed, physically beaten and facing the possibility of sharing her sister’s fate, Samantha refuses to stop her investigation. However, when the killers threaten to harm April, Samantha realizes that, for her daughter’s sake, she can no longer continue the investigation on her own. She knows she must swallow her pride and turn to her ex-husband and police detective, Jonathan Church, for help.

Can Samantha ultimately prevail—find her sister’s killer, write the story of her career, confront her drinking problem, and finally begin to change her life, or will she and April become the killer’s next victims?
