Head of Zeus
Robert Ludlum's™ The Blackbriar Deceit by Simon Gervais
 Blackbriar, 2

The thrilling new adventure from the world of Robert Ludlum, creator of Jason Bourne.

The agents of Blackbriar are used to dealing with deceit, but this time the treachery is homegrown in this explosive new series from the world of Robert Ludlum.

When three legendary retired American ambassadors are murdered within twenty-four hours of each other, Blackbriar operatives Donovan Wade and Helen Jouvert are tasked with finding the assassins. As Wade and Jouvert dig into each of the ambassadors' pasts, they discover that the three well-liked diplomats weren't as loyal to the United States as they had claimed to be. Contrary to popular belief, they had something else in common, something so shocking that it could tear the United Nations apart.

Furthermore, powerful figures both in the United States and in Europe are fearful that Wade and Jouvert's operation might jeopardize their own agenda. Caught overseas with no support but each other and trapped between entities that want to reshape the face of Europe and a Russian general bent on revenge, Wade and Jouvert will soon realize that they are the only ones who can stop the world from tilting into total chaos.
