SECRET AGENT IN A STETSON Texas native Quint Crawford was more than just a cowboy with a big ol' black hat and a lazy drawl. He was an undercover agent on loan to the newly formed Chicago Confidential branch. His mission: Pose as an oil tycoon in order to safeguard the ultraprickly PR princess, Natalie Van Buren. His top priority: Not to lose his heart to the sassy city girl. What started as threats had escalated into a kidnapping attempt—and Natalie was scared. But she refused to be smooth-talked into having a bodyguard cramp her style. Little did she know that Quint was assigned her protector. But would she be more shocked by his secret, or that she had done the unthinkable and fallen in love with…a cowboy?

I vowed, those many, many years ago, that one day I would see his bloodline cease to exist and now, finally, today, right here, right now, I will see my vow fulfilled. Sergeant First Class Eric O'Dea's routine and somewhat uneventful life quickly becomes anything but routine when he finds himself as a deep undercover operative for a U.S. Army counterintelligence unit. O'Dea's mission is to locate and expose an international espionage ring that is targeting the U.S. Army counterintelligence community and threatening national security. What he doesn't know is that his entire family-his sister, two brothers, wife, children, brother-in-law, and sister-in-law-have been gathered in Saudi Arabia. They are now the enemy's "insurance policy"-and they are expendable. The complex plan of ex-KGB agent Herr Hohen, a man with many names and ties to Middle Eastern countries, and his sexy and competent accomplice leads Eric to the sands of Saudi Arabia. Will Herr Hohen finally put an end to the close-knit, hot-tempered O'Dea family? Eric now faces a life-or-death decision: to breach national security himself and risk the charge of treason-or to attempt to take on the enemy alone.

The USS Memphis, a dilapidated submarine that that should have been mothballed decades ago, has been given one last mission by the newly elected president. The task: To sneak illegally into Russia's coastal waters and recon the leaking nuclear fuel containers hidden on the floor of the Arctic Ocean. More than just an environmental nightmare, this radioactive burial ground houses enough nuclear capability to destroy most of America's major cities. The Memphis's commander, Lowell Hardy, had been looking forward to flag rank and pleasant duty upon the sub's decommissioning. Now he is trapped in an inconceivably dangerous and illegal mission which could easily end his career, if not his life and the lives of his crew. But it's the crew who feel Hardy's tension as he tyrannizes everyone on board to ensure they'll be ready for anything: Jerry Mitchell: a former naval pilot with political connections, he is a novice submariner, unprepared for his demanding job as a weapons officer. Central to the Memphis's mission, Mitchell may be its greatest liability . . . or its ultimate salvation. Dr. Joanna Patterson: The senior civilian scientist, appointed by and reporting to the president, she is a world-class expert on nuclear fuel contamination--and every bit as demanding as Hardy. Patterson and her partner, Dr. Emily Davis, soon find themselves battling flaring tempers, faulty machinery, lethal radioactivity, and the raging arctic seas. The submariners: Seething with rage at their Captain Bligh-like commander and the equally domineering Joanna Patterson, they are also at war with Jerry Mitchell, and one another. Like the captain, they feel they deserve better, not this antiquated relic, not this hostile scientist, not this novice weapons officer, and definitely not this disastrously dangerous mission. Nor is the mission what it seems. Lurking beneath the frigid, black, radioactive waters is a secret far more deadly than anything naval command could imagine--a secret so menacing the Russian Fleet is hell-bent on destroying the Memphis and all who sail in her.

Set in the ancient Upper Egyptian village of Karnak against the backdrop of the British campaigns in Sudan, the Second World War, and the war in Palestine, The Collar and the Bracelet is the stunning saga of the Bishari family-a family ripped apart by the violence of history, the dark conduits of human desire, and the rigid social conventions of village life. In a series of masterful narrative circles and repetitions, the novella traces the grim intrigues of Hazina al-Bishari and the inexorable destinies of her son, the exile and notorious bandit Mustafa, her daughter Fahima, tortured by guilt and secret passion, and the tragic doom of her beautiful granddaughter Nabawiya. Yahya Taher Abdullah's haunting prose distills the rhythmic lyricism of the folk story and weaves it into a uniquely modernist narrative tapestry of love and revenge that beautifully captures the timeless pharaonic landscapes of Upper Egypt and the blind struggles of its inhabitants against poverty, exploitation, and time-themes that are echoed and amplified in the short stories included in this volume, which span the breadth of Abdullah's tragically short career as one of Egypt's most brilliant writers of modern fiction.
