    In 1999, thirty-year-old Nada Bakos moved from her lifelong home in Montana to Washington, DC, to join the CIA. Quickly realizing her affinity for intelligence work, Nada was determined to rise through the ranks of the agency first as an analyst and then as a targeting officer, eventually finding herself on the frontline of America’s war against Islamic extremists. In this role, Nada was charged with finding the godfather of ISIS and mastermind of Al Qaeda in Iraq: Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.In a tight, tension-packed narrative that takes the listener from Langley deep into Iraq, Bakos reveals the inner workings of the agency and the largely hidden world of intelligence gathering post 9/11. Entrenched in the predominantly male world of the CIA, Bakos belonged to a small yet dedicated sisterhood leading US Special Operations Forces to the doorstep of one of the world’s most wanted terrorists.Filled with on-the-ground insights and poignant personal anecdotes, The Targeter shows us the great personal sacrifice that comes with intelligence work. This is Nada’s story, but it is also an intimate chronicle of how a group of determined, ambitious men and women worked tirelessly in the heart of the CIA to ensure our nation’s safety at home and abroad.

    Istanbul has always been a place where stories and histories collide.From the Koran to Shakespeare, this city with three names—Byzantium, Constantinople, Istanbul—resonates as an idea and a place, real and imagined. Standing as the gateway between East and West, it has been the capital city of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman Empires. For much of its history it was the very center of the world, known simply as “The City,” but, as Bettany Hughes reveals, Istanbul is not just a city, but a story.In this epic new biography, Hughes takes us on a dazzling historical journey through the many incarnations of one of the world’s greatest cities. As the longest-lived political entity in Europe, over the last 6,000 years Istanbul has absorbed a mosaic of micro-cities and cultures all gathering around its core. At the latest count, archaeologists have measured forty-two human habitation layers. Phoenicians, Genoese, Venetians, Jews, Vikings, and Azeris all called a patch of this earth their home.Based on meticulous research and new archaeological evidence, this captivating portrait of the momentous life of Istanbul is visceral, immediate, and scholarly—narrative history at its finest.

    Recounted here is the harrowing life of the most successful confidential informant in the history of US law enforcement. A onetime mastermind narcotics distributor, C.S. 96 first saw the tragedies caused by the drug trade with his own eyes as he got to know the women involved with his business partner and the children that they raised. By the time C.S. 96 was arrested in a drug bust, he had made up his mind to get out of the business for good. Rather than beat the charges as his lawyer advised him to, he would confess, flip sides, and work for the federal government. He has spent the two decades since working for a web of federal agencies, leveraging inside information and connections gained while living his own criminal past to launch audacious operations that no other undercover agent would dream of. While projecting the swagger of a drug lord, C.S. 96 get inside the minds of the gang and cartel leaders he goes toe to toe with. He becomes an actor risking everything to perform every night—one minor slip in his character and C.S. 96 and his family may disappear forever. And when leaders of Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel that he was trying to ensnare tracked down C.S. 96’s home and visited his wife and children there unannounced, he was forced to uproot them and confront the unthinkable dangers that he brought into their lives.Unfolding in Southern California mansions, makeshift DEA trailers set up in the middle of the Redwoods, and the anonymous fast food parking lots where kilograms of cocaine and heroin changed hands, Confidential Source Ninety-Six is the epic saga of one man’s quest to redeem himself in the eyes of his family and a thrilling, intimate look at the law enforcement battle that rages on beneath our noses.

    From the New York Times bestselling author of Brady vs. Manning and dean of football writers—a book that explores the many interesting facets to NFL quarterbacks and their relationships with their fathers.Tom Brady’s father is an estate planner. Aaron Rodgers’ father is a chiropractor. Cam Newton’s father tried to sell his son to Mississippi State when he was leaving junior college. Archie Manning played fourteen years in the NFL and never made the playoffs, but his sons Peyton and Eli won a combined four Super Bowls. Joe Montana is considered by many to be the greatest quarterback of all time, but his two sons bounced around college football with limited success. My First Coach goes behind the scenes to explore the unique relationship between these and other quarterbacks and their fathers, as well as investigate various approaches to parenting through their stories. Can young athletes overcome helicopter parents? How did the kids with NFL aspirations deal with their fathers who’d already made it? What kind of pressure did they have to overcome? What kind of pressure did the father who succeeded put on his son to be an athlete? Would the expectations be lower and the results greater if the father was an attorney or doctor? Was it better for the fathers to be overbearing or borderline disinterested?My First Coach tells the compelling, real-life stories of some of the country’s most famous quarterbacks and how they took advantage of or overcame their relationships with their fathers.

    Memoir of a year in the author’s own existential book club as she grapples with huge familial lossAnne Gisleson’s adult life was gouged with crises, from the suicide of two twin sisters within two years, to the devastating wake of Hurricane Katrina, when her friend Chris proposed a philosophical exploration. Bound by the limits of adulthood responsibilities and time, Anne agreed on the condition of it being a group social venture. With no shortage of friends in need of some existential guidance and reassurance, Anne and Chris launched the Existential Crisis Reading Group. From Epicurus to Cheever to Tolstoy to Lispector, each chapter in The Futilitarians represents the text chosen for the month in a year of discussion. When Anne’s dad dies within weeks of the group’s first meeting, the gatherings take on an added importance, and Anne credits the monthly meeting for shaping the way she experiences her father’s death, and all the issues that spiraled out of it: identity, mortality, parenting, growing up and living in New Orleans, a “walled city” of its own, and especially her finally grappling with the deaths of her sisters. The Futilitarians is a memoir by a woman deeply committed to exploring questions of human existence, not alone, but with her adult friends. It is a guide to living curiously and fully, and ultimately asks us “How do we keep moving forward amid all this loss and threat?” Anne tells us: “One answer is, we do it together.”
