"Bulgaria, 1934. A young man is murdered by the local fascists. His brother, Khristo Stoianev, is recruited into the NKVD, the Soviet secret intelligence service, and sent to Spain to serve in its civil war. Warned that he is about to become a victim of Stalinís purges, Khristo flees to Paris. Night Soldiers masterfully re-creates the European world of 1934 -- 45: the struggle between Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia for Eastern Europe, the last desperate gaiety of the beau monde in 1937 Paris, and guerrilla operations with the French underground in 1944. Night Soldiers is a scrupulously researched panoramic novel, a work on a grand scale."

"In June of 1977 the CIA dismissed 820 Clandestine Service officers in a single day -- this is the factual basis for 'Shadow Trade', one of the most sophisticated and detailed treatments of that covert community ever realized in American fiction. It is a novel about the reality of contemporary intelligence: computers, mail drops, anonymous fund transfers, honey traps, and, first and foremost, duplicity -- the ability to falsify endlessly, allowing operatives to move so far into the shadows that they disappear."

(1981). Near Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Black boards quarterbound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in metallic red. Octavo. 342pps. Stated First printing. The closed page edges are slightly dingy, otherwise Fine: clean, bright, square, and soundly bound. All tips are sharp. No previous ownership markings.

"Roger Levin is an unlikely private detective -- an ex-marijuana dealer who lives over a Chinese restaurant he acquired from pot proceeds, then loses in a bar bet. Levin makes his living doing deeds for lawyers that they would rather not do themselves. In 'The Caribbean Account,' he's hired to deliver 500,000 to an unknown individual in Miami; a little matter of an heiress in thrall to a bizarre cult -- nothing that unusual. But the drop, which is to take place in a dressing room below the Orange Bowl, does not go off as planned. Somebody dies and the money disappears. The lawyers scury to protect their interests, and the De Scodellaire family, wealthy and eccentric to begin with, leans on everybody in sight."
