Portrait of a Spy
by Daniel Silva
While enjoying a day in London with his wife, antiterrorist expert Gabriel Allon spots a man he believes to be a suicide bomber and follows him into Covent Garden. Alas, undercover police knock him down before he can intervene, and carnage ensues. Afterward, the CIA asks Gabriel to track down an American-born cleric now setting himself up as a rival to Osama bin Laden.
Finding Everett Ruess
by David Roberts
In this exhaustive biography, Roberts retraces the life and disappearance of Everett Ruess in 1934. A young artist and adventurer, Ruess left home in Los Angeles at 16 and spent most of the following four years traveling alone through the remotest regions of the American West. He chronicled his adventures in letters, journals, and watercolors, and soon after he vanished in the backcountry of southern Utah, a legend grew around the handsome and troubled wanderer.

In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom's protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.
Available now at Prince Books are autographed copies of The Big Roads: The Untold Story of the Engineers, Visionaries, and Trailblazers Who Created the American Superhighways by local author Earl Swift.
Earl Swift is a Virginia-based journalist and has been a Fulbright fellow, PEN finalist and five-time Pulitzer Prize nominee, and has earned a reputation for powerful narrative and scrupulous reporting. His previous books include The Tangierman's Lament, Journey on the James, and Where They Lay. Swift writes for the Virginia-Pilot and lives in Norfolk.
A man-made wonder, a connective network, an economic force, a bringer of blight and sprawl and the possibility of escape--the U.S. interstate highway system changed the face of a continent. The Big Roads charts the creation of these landmark American roads. From the millionaire speed demon who organized the first primitive network of cross-country motor roads, to the cadre of largely forgotten engineers who conceived of the interstates and how they'd work--years before Dwight Eisenhower knew the plans existed--to the protests that erupted when the concrete juggernaut reached the cities--and thousands of people unwilling to be uprooted in the name of progress--The Big Roads follows a winding, fascinating route through twentieth-century American life.
