Tomorrow at The Ivy Bookshop: DAN FESPERMAN LAUNCH PARTY

Dan Fesperman Launch Party

Tuesday, August 12th 7pm

Click Here to RSVP

Dan Fesperman launches his new novel of suspense and intrigue.

Unmanned is a psychologically gripping descent into the eerie realm of drone warfare, led by one pilot’s risky quest to expose its darkest secrets.

As an F-16 fighter pilot, Darwin Cole was a family man on top of his world. Now he’s a washout – drunk and alone in a trailer in the Nevada desert, and haunted by what he saw on the display of the Predator drone he “piloted,” especially by the memory of an Afghan child running for her life. He reluctantly teams up with three journalists seeking to discover the identity of the anonymous – and possibly rogue – intelligence operative who called the shots in Cole’s ill-fated drone mission. But in a surveillance culture, even the well-intentioned must sometimes run for their lives, especially when what they’re tracking leads to the very heart of that culture – in intelligence, in the military, and among the unchecked private contractors who stand to profit richly from the advancing technology . . . technology not just for use “over there,” but for right here, right now.

Dan Fesperman‘s travels as a writer have taken him to thirty countries and three war zones. Lie in the Dark won the Crime Writers’ Association of Britain’s John Creasey Memorial Dagger Award for best first crime novel, The Small Boat of Great Sorrows won their Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award for best thriller, and The Prisoner of Guantanamo won the Dashiell Hammett Award from the International Association of Crime Writers. He lives in Baltimore.

The Haunting Of Hill House

By SHIRLEY JACKSON,LAURA MILLER

$15.00

The classic supernatural thriller by an author who helped define the genre.

First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a “haunting”; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

Tomorrow – The Ivy Bookshop Presents Alan Furst: Midnight In Europe

0 Written by: | Thursday, Jun 12, 2014 2:15pm

upcoming

Alan Furst presents his latest tour de force of historical espionage.

Friday, June 13, 2014– 7:00 pm

furst midnight europe

Description:

Alan Furst describes the premise of Midnight in Europe as: “Paris. 1938. Gangsters versus fascists.”

As the shadow of war darkens Europe, democratic forces on the continent struggle against fascism and communism, while in Spain the war has already begun. Cristian Ferrar, a brilliant and handsome Spanish emigre, is a lawyer in the Paris office of a prestigious international law firm. Ferrar is approached by the embassy of the Spanish Republic to help a clandestine agency trying desperately to supply weapons to the Republic’s beleaguered army – putting his life at risk in the battle against fascism. From shady Paris nightclubs to white-shoe New York law firms, from brothels in Istanbul to the dockyards of Poland, Ferrar and his allies battle the secret agents of Hitler and Franco.

Alan Furst is widely recognized as the master of the historical spy novel. He is the author of a dozen works of espionage fiction, most recently Mission to Paris, which have been translated into 18 languages. Born in New York, he lived for many years in Paris and now lives on Long Island.

Tomorrow at the Ivy Bookshop – Master of Modern Espionage Fiction, David Ignatius: The Director

0 Written by: | Wednesday, Jun 11, 2014 4:49pm

Master of modern espionage fiction, David Ignatius reads from his novel The Director

ignatius director


Click here
 to read Philip Kerr’s rave review of The Director, which he calls the best spy novel he’s read since Smiley’s People.

And click here to watch David Ignatius discussing his new novel – and its connection to the Edward Snowden affair – with Charlie Rose.

Graham Weber has been director of the CIA for less than a week when a Swiss kid in a dirty T-shirt walks into the American consulate in Hamburg and says the agency has been hacked, and he has a list of agents’ names to prove it. This is the moment a CIA director most dreads.

Weber isn’t sure where to turn until he meets a charismatic (and unstable) young man named James Morris who runs the Internet Operations Center. He’s the CIA’s in-house geek. Weber launches Morris on a mole hunt unlike anything in spy fiction, one that takes the reader into the hacker underground of Europe and America and ends up in a landscape of paranoia and betrayal. Like the new world of cyber-espionage from which it’s drawn, The Director is a maze of deception and double-dealing, about a world where everything is written in zeroes and ones and nothing can be trusted.

David Ignatius, the best-selling author of Body of Lies andThe Increment, among others, and prize-winning columnist for The Washington Post, has been covering the Middle East and the CIA for more than 25 years. He lives in Washington, DC.

Book Club Picks from The Ivy Bookshop – Third Tuesday Book Club

This week’s pick from the Third Tuesday Bookclub

TFC9781451616897he Time In Between (Paperback)

$16.00
Usually Ships in 1-5 days

The inspiring New York Times bestseller of a seemingly ordinary woman who uses her talent and courage to transform herself first into a prestigious couturier and then into an undercover agent for the Allies during World War II.

Between Youth and Adulthood . . .

At age twelve, Sira Quiroga sweeps the atelier floors where her single mother works as a seamstress. By her early twenties she has learned the ropes of the business and is engaged to a modest government clerk. But then everything changes.

Between War and Peace . . .

With the Spanish Civil War brewing in Madrid, Sira impetuously follows her handsome new lover to Morocco, but soon finds herself abandoned, penniless, and heartbroken. She reinvents herself by turning to the one skill that can save her: creating beautiful clothes.

Between Love and Duty . . .

As World War II begins, Sira is persuaded to return to Madrid, where she is the preeminent couturiere for an eager clientele of Nazi officers’ wives. She becomes embroiled in a half-lit world of espionage and political conspiracy rife with love, intrigue, and betrayal. A massive bestseller across Europe, The Time In Between is one of those rare, richly textured novels that enthrall down to the last page. María Dueñas reminds us how it feels to be swept away by a masterful storyteller.
