After being imprisoned for the vehicular manslaughter of her husband, rare book expert Eva Blake gets a chance at early release if she helps find a cache of books believed to be lost, but when she sights her husband alive and well, she must join an ex-intelligence agent to seek the truth.

McMillan Palgrave

For centuries, emperors, historians, and even the Vatican have tried to locate Ivan the Terrible's lost collection of magnificent works, the real-life Library of Gold. Now one of the volumes, The Book of Spies, has surfaced, as have its clandestine owners—a cabal of the globe's most powerful, dangerous men.

When the CIA discovers a connection between the legendary library and a bank account linked to terrorists, they bring in rare-books curator Eva Blake. Soon an attempt is made on Eva's life—and she is on the run. Determined not only to survive but to uncover the truth, Eva turns to the only person she can trust: Judd Ryder, a former intelligence officer with a troubled past and an agenda of his own.

Racing from London to Rome, Istanbul to Athens, it's up to Judd and Eva to track down the gold-covered, bejeweled books in the fabulous library—and find a way to stay ahead of the men who will stop at nothing to protect their interests…and are dead-set on keeping their secrets hidden.
