le Carré, John  
A Delicate Truth
2008: Wildlife, a counter-terrorist operation, is being mounted on the British crown colony of Gibraltar to abduct a high-value jihadist arms-buyer. So delicate is the operation that even the Foreign Office Minister's personal private secretary Toby Bell is not cleared for it. 2011: A disgraced Special Forces soldier delivers a message from the dead. Was Operation Wildlife the success it was cracked up to be, or a human tragedy that was ruthlessly covered up? Toby must choose between his conscience and duty to his Service. If the only thing necessary to the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing, how can he keep silent?

Lee, Sharon / Miller, Steve  
Liaden: Necessity's Child
The kompani sees none as enemy, and yet few as friend, existing in many places, living quietly in the shadows, thriving off the bounty that others have no wit to secure, nor skill to defend. Their private history is unwritten; their recall rooted in dance and dream. Clan Korval is in many ways the opposite: wealthy in enemies, fortunate in friends, protecting itself with vigor, and teaching even its youngest children the art of war. When representatives of Clan Korval arrive on the planet Surebleak where the kompani has lived secret and aloof, it seems to the kompani that they are borne by the very winds of change, and their plans may bring catastrophe, changing the culture, and the kompani, forever. There, the lives of three people intersect: Kezzi, apprentice to the kompani's grandmother; Syl Vor, Clan Korval's youngest warrior; and Rys, a man without a world, or a past.

Guido Brunetti #23: By Its Cover
Publisher's signed edition with custom signature page tipped in. Someone has stolen pages out of several rare books at a prestigious Venetian library.

The suspects multiply, and when a seemingly harmless theologian, who had spent years reading at the library, turns up murdered, Commissario Brunetti must question his expectations about what makes a person innocent or guilty.

Mankell, Henning  
A Treacherous Paradise
1905: At nineteen, Hanna Renstrom leaves Sweden to seek a better life. But none of her hopes - or fears - prepares her for the life she will lead. Before long, she finds herself a widow twice over, and the owner of a bordello in Portuguese East Africa, where colonialism and white supremacy rule. She is isolated within society by her profession and her sex, and, among the bordello's black prostitutes, by her color. Over the next several years, she wrestles with loneliness, and with the racism she's meant to adopt unthinkingly. As her life becomes increasingly intertwined with the prostitutes, she will make a decision that defies every expectation society has of her, as well as those she has of herself.
