The Hells Angels. The Bandidos. Asian triads. Russian mobsters and corrupt cops. Even the KKK. Just part of a day's work for Alex Caine, an undercover agent who has seen it all. After a tour in Vietnam and a stretch in prison on marijuana-possession charges, Caine fell into the cloak-and-dagger world of a contracted agent. Thanks to his quick-wittedness and tough but unthreatening demeanour, Caine could fit into whatever unsavoury situation he found himself. Over 25 years, his assignments ran the gamut from mean bikers to triad toughs. When a job was over, he'd slip away to a new part of the continent or world, where he would assume a new identity and then go back to work on another group of bad guys. Befriend and Betray offers an unflinching look at some familiar police operations and blows the lid off others that law enforcement would much prefer to keep hidden. It provides an unvarnished account of the toll such a life takes, one that often left Caine to wonder who he really was behind the myriad identities he had assumed and whether justice was ever truly served.

Once again, Alex Caine risks it all. In his latest book, Alex Caine rubs shoulders with the members of a Hong Kong triad who are deeply involved in the drug trade and a group of Ottawa skinheads that plans to detonate a bomb in the heart of the nation’s capital. Caine is blindsided when he learns that his girlfriend Shannon has been doing the same undercover work as him. When her cover is blown by members of the Russian mafia, Shannon is murdered by the mysterious Henry, who ends up in Caine’s crosshairs. The author also delves into the abuses committed on Canada’s Native communities, as shown by recent police scandals in Saskatoon. With the same intensity, he shines a light on the harassment of female officers in the RCMP. As he writes the closing chapters of his book, Caine gets a call from his former employers, who appoint him to a team of organized crime experts. Just a few days before the murderous attacks at Charlie Hebdo, Alex and his colleagues are called upon to prevent terrorist cells from activating on Canadian soil. The seasoned group of law enforcement veterans is given a list of eighteen suspects who must be neutralized at all costs. Befriend and Betray II gives readers an insider’s view of an elusive figure who knows how to walk the thin line between the good guys and the bad guys—between the missions he must carry out and the characters he must become.

This is a true account of an OSS spy, code name BILL, behind the German lines in Albania for most of 1944 during World War II. He lived in the mountains, trusting local peasants to supply most of the food and medicine. Those peasants helped him while knowing that, if caught, they and their families would be tortured and killed. They ran this risk even though turning Bill into the Gestapo would mean a handsome reward. How many would be willing to take that risk for a stranger? Bill was able to complete many missions safely. Finally, the Germans pulled out of Albania, and the Albanian partisans rushed down to take the capital of Tirana. The Communists quickly rounded up all they could find who had helped the Americans and killed them and their families. It was slaughter that took place while the Americans stood by without sending any troops to protect those who had helped them. Oh, there were legal reasons for the reluctance of the Americans to intervene, but when hundreds of lives were at stake, that was not a good enough reason to stand by and watch friends tortured and killed by their own so-called Alliesathe partisans of Enver Hoxha, the pawns of the USSR. What went wrong? Will it happen again? How can we prevent it? How can we restore the honor of America after a war? These answers may have a direct bearing on what is happening in Iraq and the world of terrorism today. Did OSS do a good job during WWII? Have they anything to offer before the veterans and their experience are all dead? Should their spirit be reconstituted as a voluntary force of civilians to bolster our Homeland Defense? In addition, is DEFENSE against terrorism enough? Should we go on the OFFENSIVE at home? How? Thisalarming book offers bold new answers in this war against terrorists at home and in Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea, and everywhere that we have troops. Will the American paradigm of pluralism and political correctness prevent us from acknowledging a religious war and prevent us from defending ourselves? Is there an answer that is politically acceptable? This book says BEYOND OSS or BOSS, is the answer.

“[A] smart and utterly diverting spy trade masterwork” from the acclaimed author of The Tears of Autumn (NPR). When two people collide on their bikes on an empty road, the meeting can hardly be by chance—especially when one of the people in question is working for the shadowy American espionage organization known as HQ, and the other seems to be involved in a similarly secretive Chinese operation. But when sparks fly, the two fall into a dangerous romance with international implications. The young American spy was sent to China simply to absorb what he could about the language and culture. But as his dalliance with the mysterious Mei blossoms into a full-blown affair, his bosses at HQ demand he use his connections to uncover the truth about a powerful CEO suspected to be a Chinese intelligence operative. Now he’s caught in a game of cat-and-mouse with lethal consequences—not only for him, but also for the global balance of power.

I collapsed on the floor, gasping for breath. “Are you her?” A voice asked. “She is.” Whirling around, I drew my knife, and saw two piercing blue eyes looking out at me from beneath a crop of dark brown hair. I took a deep breath to steady myself and fixed him with a cold glare. “I don’t know who you are or what you’re talking about, but you had better tell me where I am and what the hell I’m doing here.” Ripped from her life and brought five hundred years into the future, Amy Dove finds herself thrust into the middle of a 26th century power struggle between the mysterious Samuel and the captivating Sari. Citing a prophecy, Samuel ignores Amy’s furious protests, insisting she will bring about Sari’s downfall and refusing to return her to her time until she cooperates. Although Samuel slowly earns her trust, uncovered secrets soon shake her faith in him and, as the rebels move in on Sari, Amy faces a choice that could jeopardize the prophecy, their lives, her return home, and time itself.
