Political fixer Dev Conrad realizes there’s more at stake than a mere election when an assassination attempt is made on a US congresswoman. Political consultant Dev Conrad is doing his best to help secure a re-election victory for Congresswoman Jessica Bradshaw, who’s fighting a fierce battle against her far-right opponent, Michael Dorsey. But the campaign is thrown into chaos when an assassination attempt is made on Jessica’s life. She survives—and suddenly finds herself leading the race. But when the shotgun used in the shooting is found in the trunk of one of Jessica’s staffers, the “assassination attempt” suddenly looks staged to win votes. With Jessica’s campaign in ruins, Dev is determined to find out who wants Jessica dead . . . and someone else is just as determined to keep Dev from finding out. Book 5 in the Dev Conrad Political Thriller series. “Give this one to fans of the great Ross Thomas, whose political fixers were equally savvy and equally weary.” —Booklist “Readers of all political stripes will have as much fun following the maneuverings of Bradshaw’s and Dorsey’s respective campaigns as trying to figure out whodunit.” —Publishers Weekly

As a seasoned political consultant, Dev Conrad approaches working on the reelection campaign of Illinois Senator Warren Nichols with trepidation. The senator's best friend and adviser has just committed suicide. And though Conrad agrees with Nichols's political positions, he's leery of the senator's reputation for sleeping around. When a major televised debate proves to be a disaster for the senator, Dev is forced to look into the backgrounds of the senator's staff, which includes several people who have tangled and troubled relationships with their boss. Dev's investigation takes him through the highs and lows of the political system, the well-meaning people on both sides of the aisle, and the increasingly dark forces that work to destroy reputations and lives. It also leads him into the frightening murder of a sleazy political op who knows something about Senator Nichols that could completely destroy his career. Ed Gorman is the author of several political thrillers, including the acclaimed The Marilyn Tapes and The First Lady. In Sleeping Dogs, he looks at how money, power, and unchecked ambition have turned election campaigns into modern gladiatorial contests.

Chillingly plausible and terrifying. You'll never take another pill without thinking of Shadow of Eden. Peter Glassman MD, author of THE HELIOS RAIN. Eden, the miraculous new weight loss drug, rips through a society intoxicated by the allure of attainable physical perfection. It is at once more ubiquitous than Tylenol and more fabled than Viagra . . . yet it harbors a deadly secret, putting millions at risk. Faced with the puzzle of a crazed airline pilot and a young woman with horrifying delusions, Dr. Steve James discovers Eden's fatal flaw and suddenly finds himself, and his family, in the crosshairs of a determined assassin. In Washington, D.C., bewildered White House staffers and Cabinet members scramble to cover up President Dixon's alarmingly erratic behavior while managing an escalating confrontation with China. Dr. James, running from the relentless contract killer, realizes he alone may know what is wrong with the President-with less than twenty-four hours before war begins with China. Beginning with a terrifying dive in a 747, through state of the art medical sleuthing, high stakes political brinksmanship and calculating corporate treachery, Shadow of Eden takes the reader on a non-stop, rollercoaster of intrigue, murder, corruption and sabotage.

Conrad de Lancey has seen enough of evil: the shadow of fear on the faces of innocents; the roar of tanks through empty streets; the sudden lull before the slaughter begins. Franco's bloody insurrection taught this Englishman all about hell. Arriving in his mother's country, the now Nazi Germany, Conrad is sick at heart. Even Berlin – infamous haven of decadence and vice – salutes fascism. Himmler's black-shirted troops rule the city, and every German arm bears a Swastika. But does every German heart belong to Hitler? When Conrad is arrested by the Gestapo on suspicion of spying, he is rescued by Theo, an old friend from university, now a lieutenant of the Wehrmacht. Together they are drawn into a world of danger and deceit, of plots, paranoia and intrigue where the brave few are united by a single ambition: to free the fatherland from the Führer.

Political Consultant Devlin Conrad had the feeling that his very married client Senator Robert Logan was a lot more involved with the beautiful and mysterious Tracy Cabot than he wanted to admit. But he learned too late that the Cabot woman was a spy working for a shadowy right-wing organization – too late because by then she'd been found murdered in Senator Logan’s fishing cabin, and the police are certain that he killed her. But Conrad finds numerous suspects in the Senator's mansion and in the somewhat comic but dangerous figure of political saboteur Howie Ruskin. He must find the real killer if he is to win the election for a client whose vanity and arrogance make him right at home in the United States Senate.

Spies in the Congo is the untold story of one of the most tightly-guarded secrets of the Second World War: America’s desperate struggle to secure enough uranium to build its atomic bomb. The Shinkolobwe mine in the Belgian Congo was the most important deposit of uranium yet discovered anywhere on earth, vital to the success of the Manhattan Project. Given that Germany was also working on an atomic bomb, it was an urgent priority for the US to prevent uranium from the Congo being diverted to the enemy — a task entrusted to Washington’s elite secret intelligence agents. Sent undercover to colonial Africa to track the ore and to hunt Nazi collaborators, their assignment was made even tougher by the complex political reality and by tensions with Belgian and British officials. A gripping spy-thriller, Spies in the Congo is the true story of unsung heroism, of the handful of good men — and one woman — in Africa who were determined to deny Hitler his bomb.
