New York Times bestseller Gayle Lynds is the award-winning author of ten international thrillers, including The Assassins, The Book of Spies, and The Last Spymaster. Her fiction has won numerous awards. Publishers Weekly lists Masquerade among the top ten spy novels of all time. Library Journal hails her as “the reigning queen of espionage fiction.” With Robert Ludlum, she created the Covert-One series. The first—The Hades Factor—was a CBS miniseries. She recently appeared on CBS Sunday Morning, and in the deep dark past, she shattered the glass ceiling of Bouchercon’s infamous all-boys poker games. She’s co-founder (with David Morrell) of International Thriller Writers and lives in Maine with her husband, John C Sheldon, a retired judge who’s now writing fiction, poor man, and one very bossy geriatric cat. www.gaylelynds.com
