Holmes Factor by Brian Freemantle

Book Description

It's just weeks from the outbreak of the First World War, a conflict few expect to erupt. If it does, Russia is pivotal. But Russia, having survived one abortive revolution, seeths with unrest. Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin plot a second. The hypnotic monk, Rasputin, has ingratiated himself sufficiently with the Tsar and Tsarina to dictate government policy. Will Russia fight? Will the Romanov dynasty be overthrown? If they are, will Britain accept them in exile? To answer such questions - upon which British war policy depends - Sebastian Holmes, son of the legendary Sherlock Holmes, is despatched to St Petersburg, where he infiltrates the revolutionaries and the imperial court. There, the unpredictable chief of the Tsar's secret police tries to manipulate Sebastian for personal reasons. As does his contact in the British embassy - in which Sebastian discovers spies for both Russia and Germany - and by whom he is betrayed into giving a false assurance that threatens his own life.

Cloud Collector by Brian Freemantle Cloud Collector, Hardback (November 2015)

When Western intelligence services recognize a global jihadist attack has been mounted, the United States and the UK lead the counter-offensive. Attack after attack is foiled but the Al Qaeda mastermind eludes MI5 and the CIA. As they prepare for the final attack, they realize that the plot is more sinister than they had ever thought possible.

Red Star Burning by Brian Freemantle Red Star Burning, Hardback (June 2012)

MI5 tolerates Charlie because he's their best field agent. What no one knows is that he is married to Natalia Fedova, a colonel in the FSB, the Russian intelligence successor to the KGB. It's a secret that could land her in front of a firing squad, and land him in jail for life.
