Written by an ex-FBI agent: Two breakneck thrillers “full of the kind of fascinating nuggets that can only be mined from actual experience” (Chicago Tribune). FBI Agent Puller Monk has never been one to do what he’s told. If he did, he wouldn’t be nearly as effective. Author Gene Riehl draws on his two-decade career as an undercover agent and counterintelligence expert to craft authentic tales of adventure and intrigue that pit his flawed hero against the forces of evil. “To his insider knowledge, [Riehl] adds the talent of a first-rate storyteller who keeps the action moving.” —San Diego Union-Tribune Quantico Rules: Monk and his Special Inquiries (SPIN) squad figure their latest assignment—a background check on the first African American Supreme Court nominee—will be a routine investigation. But soon Monk has a dead body on his hands, and he and Special Agent Lisa Sands are plunged into a maelstrom of deceit, corruption, and murder that reaches the highest levels of government. “A must-read, a suspense-packed cautionary tale of corruption told by an ex-FBI agent who isn’t afraid to show us the ugly stuff.” —Harlan Coben Sleeper: Monk is called in by the NSA to track down a Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece stolen from a private collector. But the culprit is no ordinary thief; she’s a sleeper terrorist—an American abducted as an infant by North Korean operatives and trained in the deadliest of arts. Working deep undercover, Monk plunges into a game of cat and mouse that could cost him his life—and the lives of many others. “Puller is no standard-issue flawed hero; he is a fresh, exciting, and dramatic creation. . . . An excellent series.” —Booklist

The FBI is on the hunt for a North Korean sleeper agent in this thriller by the author of Quantico Rules, called “a fresh new voice” by Harlan Coben. FBI agent Puller Monk has been called in to track down a Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece that was recently stolen from a private collector in Washington, DC. But the culprit isn’t an ordinary thief; she’s a sleeper terrorist—an American who was abducted as an infant, renamed Sung Kim by her North Korean captors, and trained in the deadliest of arts. The National Security Agency (NSA) wants Monk to catch her before she carries out her next diabolical mission. Working so deep undercover that even the FBI and Monk’s girlfriend are kept in the dark, the rogue agent plunges into a game of cat and mouse that could cost him his life—and the lives of many others. But Monk never backs off from a case, and he has his own unorthodox methods of getting the job done. As he moves within the shadows, Monk becomes both hunter and prey in an endgame more chilling than anyone could imagine. An ex-FBI agent himself, Gene Riehl debuted the Puller Monk series with Quantico Rules, acclaimed as “riveting” by the San Diego Union-Tribune and “good to the last page” by Michael Connelly. Booklist’s starred review said, “This is one of those thrillers you genuinely wish wouldn’t end. At its center is Puller Monk, FBI agent, compulsive gambler, and accomplished liar. . . . Monk is a strong lead, a believable character full of contradictions and obsessions we’ve only begun to explore. Further Monk adventures aren’t just welcome; they’re absolutely necessary.”

This thriller by an ex-FBI agent about a Supreme Court nominee and a high-level cover-up is “a must-read” (Harlan Coben). FBI agent Puller Monk and his Special Inquiries (SPIN) squad figure their latest assignment—a background check on the 1st African American female Supreme Court nominee—will be a routine investigation. But when verifying information about Federal Judge Brenda Thompson, it becomes clear that she’s lying about a 3-week gap in her past that occurred between college and law school. Her old roommate could provide answers, but she’s missing. Soon, Monk has a dead body on his hands, and he and Special Agent Lisa Sands are plunged into a maelstrom of deceit, corruption, and murder that reaches the highest levels of government. Monk is determined to blow the lid off a massive cover-up, but he may not be able to contain the fallout as the truth starts to emerge. Amid escalating violence, the FBI agent orchestrates a sting that will force a killer from the shadows—a cunning adversary who has his own plan for taking out Monk. With “engaging characters [and] a racing plot” (Houston Chronicle), this suspenseful read offers both an authentic portrayal of the world of national security and a high-tension story of corruption and murder. “The author, a former FBI agent, writes like a pro, and this is one of those thrillers you genuinely wish wouldn’t end” (Booklist, starred review).

In the 1920s, revolution, war, and imperialist aggression brought chaos to China. Many of the dramatic events associated with this upheaval took place in or near China's cities. Bound together by rail, telegraph, and a shared urban mentality, cities like Guangzhou, Shanghai, and Beijing formed an arena in which the great issues of the day--the quest for social and civil peace, the defense of popular and national sovereignty, and the search for a distinctively modern Chinese society--were debated and fought over. People were drawn into this conflicts because they knew that the passage of armies, the marching of protesters, the pontificating of intellectual, and the opening and closing of factories could change their lives. David Strand offers a penetrating view of the old walled capital of Beijing during these years by examining how the residents coped with the changes wrought by itinerant soldiers and politicians and by the accelerating movement of ideas, capital, and technology. By looking at the political experiences of ordinary citizens, including rickshaw pullers, policemen, trade unionists, and Buddhist monks, Strand provides fascinating insights into how deeply these forces were felt. The resulting portrait of early twentieth-century Chinese urban society stresses the growing political sophistication of ordinary people educated by mass movements, group politics, and participation in a shared, urban culture that mixed opera and demonstrations, newspaper reading and teahouse socializing. Surprisingly, in the course of absorbing new ways of living, working, and doing politics, much of the old society was preserved--everything seemed to change and yet little of value was discarded. Through tumultuous times, Beijing rose from a base of local and popular politics to form a bridge linking a traditional world of guilds and gentry elites with the contemporary world of corporatism and cadres.

Hailed by The New York Times Book Review as "a gifted observer, able to discern the exact details that bring whole worlds into being" and "a storyteller who could keep a sultan on the edge of his throne for a thousand and one nights," A. S. Byatt writes some of the most engaging and skillful novels of our time. Time magazine calls her "a novelist of dazzling inventiveness." Possession, for which Byatt won England's prestigious Booker Prize, was praised by critics on both sides of the Atlantic when it was first published in 1990. "On academic rivalry and obsession, Byatt is delicious. On the nature of possession—the lover by the beloved, the biographer by his subject—she is profound," said The Sunday Times (London). The New Yorker dubbed it "more fun to read than The Name of the Rose . . . Its prankish verve [and] monstrous richness of detail [make for] a one-woman variety show of literary styles and types." The novel traces a pair of young academics—Roland Michell and Maud Bailey—as they uncover a clandestine love affair between two long-dead Victorian poets. Interwoven in a mesmerizing pastiche are love letters and fairytales, extracts from biographies and scholarly accounts, creating a sensuous and utterly delightful novel of ideas and passions. With an Introduction by the author that describes the novel's origins and its twenty-year gestation, this Modern Library edition is a handsome keepsake for fans of Possession—new and old alike.

Increasing investment in interdisciplinary somnology and sleep medicine research training and mentoring activities. Validating and developing new and existing technologies for diagnosis and treatment.

In Cory Doctorow's wildly successful Little Brother, young Marcus Yallow was arbitrarily detained and brutalized by the government in the wake of a terrorist attack on San Francisco—an experience that led him to become a leader of the whole movement of technologically clued-in teenagers, fighting back against the tyrannical security state. A few years later, California's economy collapses, but Marcus's hacktivist past lands him a job as webmaster for a crusading politician who promises reform. Soon his former nemesis Masha emerges from the political underground to gift him with a thumbdrive containing a Wikileaks-style cable-dump of hard evidence of corporate and governmental perfidy. It's incendiary stuff—and if Masha goes missing, Marcus is supposed to release it to the world. Then Marcus sees Masha being kidnapped by the same government agents who detained and tortured Marcus years earlier. Marcus can leak the archive Masha gave him—but he can't admit to being the leaker, because that will cost his employer the election. He's surrounded by friends who remember what he did a few years ago and regard him as a hacker hero. He can't even attend a demonstration without being dragged onstage and handed a mike. He's not at all sure that just dumping the archive onto the Internet, before he's gone through its millions of words, is the right thing to do. Meanwhile, people are beginning to shadow him, people who look like they're used to inflicting pain until they get the answers they want. Fast-moving, passionate, and as current as next week, Homeland is every bit the equal of Little Brother—a paean to activism, to courage, to the drive to make the world a better place.
