 Cyprus. 1979. One island, divided by the notorious Green Line. Greeks on one side, Turks on the other. To cross the Green Line means death and 342 men have found that out. John Reid, who grew up in Cyprus, is the first to cross the Green Line, and not once but several times. Certain Greek millionaires make him an offer he can’t refuse, and this leads him into the clutches of The Professor, the head of the Turkish Cypriot Secret Service. Reid’s desperate attempt at escape is threatened by Burt Zoffel, a CIA operative from his past, and by Zoffel’s beautiful daughter, playing her own game. With the scent of the old Ottoman world wafting about, Reid moves fast over the sun-baked soil and through the Aleppo pines, along the golden beaches with kebabs and ouzo, up perilous mountain roads beneath ancient monasteries on craggy cliffs, and Crusader castles aloof above the world of killers and spies.

“Wealth Matters” columnist for The New York Times reveals the decisions, behaviors, and worldviews that lead to true wealth. For the better part of the past decade, Paul Sullivan has written about and lived among some of the wealthiest people in America. He has learned how they save, spend, and invest their money; how they work and rest; how they use their wealth to give their children educational advantages, but not strip them of motivation. He has also seen how they make horrendous mistakes. Firsthand, Sullivan knows why some people, even “rich” people, never find true wealth, and why other people, even those who have far less, are far better off financially. This book shows how others can make better financial decisions—and come to terms with what money means to them. It lays out how to avoid the pitfalls around saving, spending, and giving money away and think differently about wealth to lead a more secure and less stressful life. An essential complement to all of the financial advice available, this “timely…smart” (Publishers Weekly) guide is a welcome antidote to the idea that wealth is a number on a bank statement.

In his sixth book, the author stays closer to home with a major piece on a massive undercover sting operation that netted more than one hundred arrests for poaching and illegal wild game crimes. These arrests led to the conviction of almost all those caught and at least temporarily halted the vast slaughter of wildlife in Colorado's San Juan Valley. Other stories are more personal and complete a portrait of this dedicated conservation veteran. Original.
