THE SPY WHO CAME FOR CHRISTMAS
A master of action-suspense, Morrell tells an electrifying yet simple tale of violence, conscience and the spirit of the season. It's a page-turning skid past a renowned tourist attraction into a murky world where life or death is the only guaranteed outcome.
They're surrounded by men who will stop at nothing to complete their mission and kill all who stand in their way. In the true spirit of the season, they stand together to save a baby and, if they're lucky, themselves. (Vanguard, Nov., 220 pp., $15.95)
