Reading Ahead: July 2016, part 1

Need a thrill this summer? These thrillers will take you all over the globe, but still have you home in time for supper!

The Black Widow, by Daniel Silva.
Gabriel Allon, the art restorer, spy, and assassin last seen in 2015's The English Spy,  is poised to become the chief of Israel’s secret intelligence service. But on the eve of his promotion, events conspire to lure him into the field for one final operation. ISIS has detonated a massive bomb in the Marais district of Paris, and a desperate French government wants Gabriel to eliminate the man responsible before he can strike again.

White Bone, by Ridley Pearson. New in Pearson's Risk Agent series after 2014's The Red Room. When ex–military contractor John Knox receives a text from partner Grace Chu warning that she fears her cover may have been blown while on assignment, he jumps into action. Knox must locate her overseas handlers, convince them of the threat, and then attempt to retrace the well-hidden steps of a woman who had been attempting to determine how one million euros’ worth of AIDS vaccine disappeared, all while eluding angry poachers on a parallel trail.

Killer Look, by Linda Fairstein. New York is among the fashion capitals of the world, but with high fashion come high stakes, as Alex Cooper quickly discovers when businessman and designer Wolf Savage is found dead in an apparent suicide, mere days before the biggest show of his career. When the man's daughter insists Savage’s death was murder, the case becomes more than a media sensation: It is a race to find a killer in a world created entirely out of fantasy and illusion.
