Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro are tough private investigators who know the blue-collar neighbourhoods and ghettos of Boston's Dorchester section as only natives can. Working out of an old church belfry, Kenzie and Gennaro take on a seemingly simple assignment for a prominent politician: to uncover the whereabouts of Jenna Angeline, a black cleaning woman who has allegedly stolen confidential Statehouse documents. But finding Jenna proves easy compared to staying alive. The investigation escalates, uncovering a web of corruption extending from bombed-out ghetto streets to the highest levels of state government. With slick, hip dialogue and a lyrical narrative pocked by explosions of violence, A Drink Before the War confronts a city in which institutionalized bigotry and corruption are often the norm, and the true nature of 'racial incidents' is rarely clear. Dennis Lehane's remarkable debut is at once a pulsating crime thriller and a mirror of our world, one in which the worst human horrors are found closest to home, and the most vicious obscenities are committed in the name of love.

'A dark, humane masterpiece' The Times When the renowned aviation hero and rabid isolationist Charles A. Lindbergh defeats Franklin Roosevelt by a landslide in the 1940 presidential election, fear invades every Jewish household in America. Not only has Lindbergh publicly blamed the Jews for pushing America towards a pointless war with Nazi Germany, but, upon taking office as the 33rd president of the United States, he negotiates a cordial 'understanding' with Adolf Hitler, guaranteeing peaceful relations between the two nations. What then follows is the alternative America of this startling counterfactual novel by Philip Roth, who recounts what it was like for his Newark family during the menacingly anti-Semitic years of the Lindbergh presidency. Jewish families are shaken violently apart, whilst America is oblivious to its own dark metamorphosis.

Spain is on the brink of economic collapse and European banks demand that any bailout be linked to harsh domestic changes. An alliance of Islamic bankers counters this with a rescue package containing no conditions at all. But behind this simple solution is an underlying goal: to break the unity of Europe and put Madrid on the path back to Islamic rule. When the US stridently opposes the deal, terrorists storm the American consulate in Barcelona and slaughter an entire six-man US Marine security guard. In response, Washington unleashes black ops team Task Force Trident to take down those responsible for the attack, and Gunnery Sergeant Kyle Swanson, one of the world's best snipers, is called in. Meanwhile, Algerian mastermind Yanis Rebiane puts pressure on Spain to make a decision, while his killing-machine son, Djahid, roams the US, murdering anyone his father deems a threat to the radical takeover scheme . . . Once Swanson's name is unearthed from secret files, Kyle and Djahid become mortal enemies. One shot will decide the future of Spain, NATO and the EU.
