Mission Critical: A Gray Man Novel

Court Gentry's flight on a CIA transport plane is interrupted when a security team brings a hooded man aboard. The mystery man is being transported to England, where a joint CIA/MI6 team will interrogate him about a mole in Langley. When they land in an isolated airbase in the U.K., they are attacked by a hostile force who kidnaps the prisoner. His handlers send him after the attackers, but what can one operative do against a trained team of assassins? A lot, when that operative is the Gray Man.

Mr. Townsend and the Polish Prince: An American Story of Race, Redemption, and Football

In November of 1980, Delaware State College lost a football game to Portland State University by the outrageous score of 105 to 0. In the aftermath, school administration turned to an unlikely new coach – Joe Purzycki. This is a story about two men who took a huge chance together. It’s a story of intolerance becoming tolerant. It’s a story of something unacceptable becoming accepted. It’s a story about losing that became a story about a winning. It’s a story of how sometimes something that begins at rock bottom can end up on the mountain top.

Early Riser

Every Winter, the human population hibernates. During those bitterly cold four months, the nation is a snow-draped landscape of desolate loneliness, devoid of human activity. Well, not quite. Your name is Charlie Worthing and it's your first season with the Winter Consuls, the committed but mildly unhinged group of misfits who are responsible for ensuring the hibernatory safe passage of the sleeping masses. You are investigating an outbreak of viral dreams which you dismiss as nonsense; nothing more than a quirky artefact borne of the sleeping mind. But teasing truth from the Winter is never easy: You have to avoid the Villains and their penchant for murder, kidnapping, and stamp collecting, ensure you aren't eaten by Nightwalkers, whose thirst for human flesh can only be satisfied by comfort food, and sidestep the increasingly less-than-mythical WinterVolk. 

Presentation free; Signing Line Tickets available with Pre-Purchase of Early Riser from Third Place Books. (206) 366-3333.
