Conclave: A novel | Lenin's Roller Coaster (A Jack McColl Novel) | Defectors: A Novel | The Spider Network: The Wild Story of a Math Genius, a Gang of Backstabbing Bankers, and One of the Greatest Scams in Financial History | Guilty Minds | An Honorable Man | The Travelers | The Jackal's Share | The Silent Oligarch
The acclaimed author of The Silent Oligarch and The Jackalâs Share, Christopher Morgan Jones returns to a murky world where corporate spies and government agents battle far from the public eye. Focusing on Georgia, a mountainous republic dominated and threatened by its neighbor Russia, Morgan Jones carries readers deep into an ancient land of chilling compromises and foolhardy valor.
Morgan Jonesâs novels center on a unique London corporate espionage firm, spearheaded by Ike Hammer and Ben Webster, which follows criminal money anywhere it leads: be it Moscow or Dubai, Monaco or Kazakhstan, a bureaucratâs pockets or a politicianâs bank account. While Webster was the star of the earlier novelsâinvestigating Russian businessmen and KGB operatives in The Silent Oligarch andÂ Persian billionaires and Tehran terrorists in The Jackalâs Shareâin The Searcher the focus shifts provocatively to Hammer, making this a perfect starting point for old fans and new readers alike.
Journeying to Georgia for the funeral of a friend, a journalist who inexplicably commits suicide after publishing the exposÃ© of a lifetime, Webster mysteriously disappears. As the country rumbles ominously with civil strife and Russian aggression, Hammer rushes to Tbilisi to track down his missing friend. There he is forced to confront the countryâs tragic chaos: civilians bombed either by cruel Russian spies or by deceitful Georgian soldiers; violent riots instigated by amoral oligarchs or government saboteurs; and double and even triple agents who are playing all sides against each other at once. Threatened by enemies he cannot name and âfriendsâ he cannot trust, Hammer hurries northâinto the lawless mountains bordering Russia itselfâto discover the true fate of his friend and Georgiaâs future.
