Gideon. An identity shrouded in mystery - the anonymous source who holds the key to an explosive secret. In a clandestine meeting, writer Carl Granville is hired to take the pages of an old diary, articles, letters, documents in which all proper names and locations have been blacked out - and turn them into compelling fiction. He will be paid a quarter of a million dollars. But he can never tell a soul.

As he is fed information and his work progresses, Granville begins to realize that Gideon's book is more than just a potential bestseller. It is a revelation of chilling evil and a decades-long cover-up by someone with far-reaching power. He starts to have second thoughts. How will his book be used? Whose lives will be shattered? What is the truth behind the story - and who is the true storyteller?

Then someone close to Granville is bludgeoned to death. Another is savagely murdered. His apartment is ransacked, his computer destroyed, all his records stolen. Suspicion falls on Granville. He tries to explain the shadowy assignment. No one believes him. He has no proof, no alibis...

An intriguing, compulsive romantic thriller from the highly acclaimed author of A Good Woman and Memory and Desire. How well do you know the person you're married to? Cambridge. Tessa and Stephen's marriage is quietly foundering. She wants a baby, but seemingly cannot have one. Stephen, an introverted scientist, will not talk about it. Tessa can't talk about anything else. A mysterious French voice on the ansaphone leads her to suspect Stephen of infidelity. When he leaves for a conference in Paris, Tess — impulsively, uncharacteristically — decides to follow him. But once abroad, Stephen is no longer the quiet Englishman. He has a network of contacts, overt and covert, from Paris to Prague, through which information has been disseminated since Cold War days. But now the political barriers are down, free enterprise is sweeping the scientific community. Information is power, power is money. And Stephen has a uniquely valuable project stored on his laptop! As the frontiers change — geographic, scientific, personal — as the shifting balance between the sexes leads to expanding expectations, Stephen and Tessa must weigh their new knowledge of each other against the age-old desires for companionship, satisfaction and passion.

The world's most powerful newspaper barons - which of them will triumph? At first glance, Richard Armstrong and Keith Townsend seemed to have little in common. One was the son of an illiterate peasant, who emerged from the most backward corner of a Europe ravaged by a bitter war. The other was raised in a mansion on the far side of the world while the war was just another piece of news. Once was a hustler, a thief, ready to change even his identity, if it would gain him a momentary advantage. The other was the scion of a well-known family, groomed for a public role, a rebel who didn't care if anyone approved of what he got up to. One craved wealth, recognition, status. The other quickly discovered that real power comes from anonymity. But they did have one thing in common. Both of them were gamblers. Both were prepared to risk everything in their battle to control the biggest newspaper empire in the world.
