Resurgence

In the heart of the majestic Himalayas lies Nepal, a nation at a crossroads between tradition and modernity. “Resurgence” is a captivating tale that weaves through the tumultuous journey of this nation as it grapples with political upheavals and the aspiration to restore its monarchy. Set against the backdrop of Nepal’s vibrant culture and geopolitical complexities, this novel intricately explores the intertwined destinies of its compelling characters. The story unfolds with Nepal influenced by external powers and internal strife, led by the Chinese-aligned Prime Minister Prem Karki, whose dubious dealings threaten the nation’s sovereignty. In stark contrast, the charismatic Maya Gurung emerges as the face of the pro-monarchy movement, advocating for the restoration of Nepal’s erstwhile Hindu monarchy. Their struggle is intertwined with Aarav Bhandari, a politician with a covert monarchist agenda, and Lakshmi Pradhan, an outspoken pro-monarchy leader. Central to this narrative is Beena Mishra, an Indian diplomat, who, through her assignment in Nepal, undergoes a transformative journey. Her journey is fraught with challenges, especially from her superior, Subodh Kumar, a covert Chinese ally, creating internal conflicts. “Resurgence” not only captures the essence of Nepal’s political saga but also delves into themes of cultural identity, the power of narratives, and the enduring impact of traditional values in the modern world. It’s a story of a nation’s struggle for its identity and sovereignty, a testament to the resilient spirit of the Nepalese people, and a reflection on the complex tapestry of South Asian geopolitics.

Terror’s Sword, A Kyle McEwan Novel

Terror’s Sword “definitely satisfies as the pace never falters, the cutting-edge timely plot never stumbles and the ending delivers. A romp of a read.”
—Steve Berry, New York Times and International #1 Bestselling Author


Two dangerous weapons barrel toward each other: an anonymous revenge-fueled terrorist determined to destroy America and the only man who can stop him.

An attacker known as Terror’s Sword is heading for the U.S. with an undetermined bioweapon. When intelligence agencies fail to identify the terrorist or his bioagent, the president taps elite counterterrorism operative Kyle McEwan to hunt down the terrorist and eliminate the threat.

Tracking the terrorist across multiple continents, McEwan and U.S. special operations forces execute raids yielding crucial evidence that unmasks the terror mastermind and identifies his bioagent. Despite these discoveries, scientists conclude the genetically altered virus cannot be defeated.

Embedded terror cells and obstructive deep state factions impede McEwan’s search, increasing the likelihood of an attack on America, leaving the world to face an unprecedented pandemic threatening untold millions. Global survival rests on McEwan’s shoulders with the mastermind on the loose and his bioweapon strike imminent. Who prevails?

Following in the footsteps of iconic characters such as Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Child’s Jack Reacher, Ludlum’s Jason Bourne, and Thor’s Scot Harvath, Kyle McEwan confronts the evil forces threatening his nation and the world.

“Kuhens provides edge-of-your-seat entertainment from beginning to end. Terror’s Sword is the consummate thriller packed full of psychological one-upmanship. The author paints an action-packed picture of the real world, real locations, and real military scenarios.”
—Military Writers Society of America

The History Teacher

RIVETING” — Midwest Book Review

2020 IPPY Award for Best Regional Fiction (Silver) 

It’s 1978. In the wake of a baffling double murder, a Columbia University professor is drawn into an intrigue that harks back to the beginnings of the Cold War — and forced to confront the truth about her family and history as we know it.

How do you know what you know is true? 

During the blizzard of 1978, a woman is discovered face down at the edge of her Delaware estate, a boxer, half-dead, by her side. Nearby, in a deep ravine, a CIA officer lies buried under two feet of snow. Their secret meeting–sabotaged.

When Emma Quinn gets a call in her Manhattan apartment–your grandmother, out walking her dog, found dead in the snow–she has no reason to suspect foul play. A history professor at Columbia and the sole heir to the Quinn fortune, she heads down to Delaware, where her grandmother’s death has triggered a series of unsettling events–a break-in at the estate, an unexpected visit from the CIA and the discovery of a disturbing collection of news clippings in an upstairs study–about hijackings, bombings and acts of terror. Back in Manhattan, Emma is being followed by a mysterious stranger. Her distress grows when she meets a well-known historian, a Scotsman and Sovietologist named Angus McLearan, who accuses her late grandfather of wrongdoing during the 1930s and ’40s.

Determined to clear her grandfather’s name and to understand her grandmother’s fate, Emma forms an uneasy alliance with McLearan. Together, they head deeper into an intrigue that harks back to the beginnings of the Cold War and the early days of the intelligence community. As Emma’s research and the CIA’s investigation into the death of their agent begin to intersect, she no longer knows who or what to believe. And it soon becomes apparent that this isn’t just about something that happened in the 1940s. It’s about an operation that is still in play in 1978, one that puts Emma–and the broader world–at risk. When a discovery leads her to her family’s remote Adirondack cabin, the stranger follows. There, Emma is forced to confront the truth–about her family and about history as we know it.

Praise for THE HISTORY TEACHER 

“Susan Bacon’s THE HISTORY TEACHER is a rare thriller . . . scrupulously researched, cagily and compellingly plotted and eminently credible. . . . thought-provoking as both history and fiction. And oh yeah, a pleasure to read, written, sentence by sentence, with the eye of a shrewd observer and the ear of a writer who knows language is music.”
— BRUCE WEBER, journalist and author of Life Is a Wheel: Memoirs of a Bike-Riding Obituarist

“Starting with a baffling double murder in a snowstorm in Delaware . . . THE HISTORY TEACHER rushes the reader through a perilous intersection of chateau country wealth, the academic world in Manhattan and Cold War intrigue . . . an excellent, well-crafted debut novel.”
— CURTIS WILKIE, journalist and author of The Fall of the House of Zeus

“THE HISTORY TEACHER is . . . a lively, classic page-turner–full of spying, murder and double dealing. Emma Quinn and her grandmother Margaret are 20th century heroines who would have to wait for a 21st century writer as skilled and clever as Bacon . . . to imagine their brave and savvy pursuit of the truth.”
–EMILY YELLIN, journalist and author of Our Mothers’ War

The Killing of the Cherrywood MP

The Killing of the Cherrywood MP is the brilliant second book in the lauded Karen Andersen political thriller series by Louise Burfitt-Dons. In this fast-paced and gripping novel P I Andersen is once again immersed in the world of radical extremism in Britain and about to learn it’s as complicated as it’s deadly. 

“‘Taut, hardboiled, detailed and funny. This is thriller excellence!’ “Charlie Flowers

Jihadi brides return from Syria and deradicalised terrorists are released from prison. In reaction extremist right-wing groups proliferate across Europe. The Labour MP for Cherrywood is found murdered and police look for a lone wolf with a personal vendetta against ISIS.

P I Karen Andersen believes it’s not that simple. From the roulette tables of the Ritz to the respectable suburbs of Mainz, she searches for the truth. Does the home to one of Germany’s violent neo-Fascist cells hold the vital clue, or does it lie hidden in the leafy English countryside?

The Missing Activist

“Intense and teasing”Vine Voice
“Authentic and gripping political thriller”The Conservative Woman

Post-Referendum Britain and a country on high alert for terrorist attacks.
When a young political activist disappears in London, an off-the-wall PI Karen Andersen is put on the case. She uncovers secrets of a party system which prizes loyalty above truth, a serial killer and a female Jihadi plotting deadly revenge on the British Government.

“A behind-the-scenes twisty political thriller and bullying story of poignancy and compassion. The author has had experience of both having been a national candidate during the 2015 General Election as well as the founder of an anti-bullying charity during the scandal which rocked the Tories after the tragic death of a young activist later that year.” LBC

If you were a fan of Lisbeth Salander, you will love her British counterpart Karen Andersen.
