A lawyer gets caught in the crossfire of a deadly civil war in Africa Richard Deaken has lost his nerve. Once a globally renowned trial lawyer, he has suffered a string of bad results that have sapped his confidence and dulled the edge necessary for success in the high-stakes world of international law. Resigned to life in obscurity, he has retreated to an unimpressive office in Geneva, where the trickle of low-paying clients doesn & rsquo;t come close to supporting the lifestyle that he & mdash;and his wife & mdash;are used to. But a big case is right around the corner. Deaken & rsquo;s new employers are soldiers in a vicious African civil war on the brink of erupting into unprecedented bloodshed. An order of $50 million worth of arms is on its way to his client & rsquo;s opponents, and to stop it they have kidnapped the arms dealer & rsquo;s son. They ask Deaken to negotiate the ransom & mdash;the guns in exchange for the child & mdash;and he cannot say no, because the guerillas have also kidnapped his wife. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Brian Freemantle including rare photos from the author & rsquo;s personal collection
To save a son by Jack Winchester( )

Desperate for worldwide success, a businessman places himself in the hands of the unforgiving mafia Born a refugee, Eddie Franks intends to live like a Rockefeller. He wants wealth, not for its own sake but because it means never having to be like his father, who fled Nazi Germany only to spend the rest of his life looking over his shoulder. For most of his childhood, Eddie was raised by the Scargos, an American family whose patriarch kept his real son, Nicky, in constant competition with Eddie. Their battle has never ended. Though now an internationally successful hotel magnate, Eddie still feels the need to outdo Nicky. At his stepbrother & rsquo;s suggestion, he goes into business in the Americas, opening a cruise company in the Caribbean. Expansion is the name of the game, and Nicky offers financing, with strings attached. The money is an investment from organized crime, and Eddie is unaware that the interest will be paid in blood.
