In "one of the best" political thrillers from two Washington insiders (Nelson DeMille, NYT bestselling author), America's leaders must hunt down a master terrorist in hiding and neutralize the threat of political betrayal. The greatest nightmare for the free world today would be an extremist in hiding, controlling and coordinating radical Islamic groups at the highest level around the globe. In Duplicity, two bestselling authors -- former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and Pulitzer Prize finalist Pete Earley -- weave a grim and gripping tale of this worst case scenario. From home front fears to an international crisis, this thriller is terrifyingly plausible, ripped straight from the headlines. When President Sally Allworth decides to reestablish America's Mogadishu embassy in Somalia weeks before Election Day, her challenger says she is playing politics with American lives. That turns out to be true when the embassy is attacked and hostages are taken. Station chief Gunter Conner and Marine captain Brooke Grant end up the unlikely survivors of this Benghazi-style strike. And suddenly, they are the only hope for saving their captured colleagues. With his in-depth political knowledge of friends and foes on the political stage, only Newt Gingrich could weave such a spellbinding tale of events and personalities, one that could actually happen . . . if America's leaders aren't wary of a world full of duplicity.

0900 hours, 11th September, 2012. Darkness cloaks the American Embassy in Libya. The flag is flying at half-mast, to commemorate the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks on America. Without warning one hundred heavily armed fighters emerge from the night and blast the Embassy gates asunder. The savage siege of the American Embassy in Libya has begun. The mass of Al Qaeda gunmen surge through the shattered gateway and open fire. Their aim is to kill all Americans based at the Embassy, and to capture their prize, Ambassador J Christopher Stevens, alive. This is a carefully-planned attack, using overwhelming firepower and numbers. The handful of lightly armed defenders stand little chance ... Unless ... On the streets outside the Embassy one man steps out of the shadows. British soldier Sgt Morgan Jones carries with him one Browning pistol, and thirty rounds of ammo - the only weaponry he can lay his hands on amidst the chaos of battle. But he also carries with him a total conviction to rescue his American brothers-in arms, or die trying. Jones knows there’s a US Navy SEAL force based at a secret CIA annex, a short drive away. But will they make it to the Embassy in time, through streets awash with enemy fighters? Only he knows the secret ways in to the complex, and he will never be able to live with himself if he leaves his American brothers hanging. So begins the rescue mission of a lifetime, an epic from which few will emerge unscathed. Lone Warrior is an edge of the seat rollercoaster ride of savagery and courage beyond measure. It is the Black Hawk Down of the 21st Century.

As an expansion Major League Soccer team, the Orlando City Soccer Club marked the return of professional soccer to Florida for the first time since 2001, selling out the sixty-thousand-seat Citrus Bowl for its home opener and going on to have the second‐highest home attendance for the 2015 and 2016 seasons. It was the successful culmination of a nine-year process orchestrated by the team’s owner, Phil Rawlins, who sold his successful sales consultancy company for a shot at sports ownership and a chance to tap into America’s growing interest in pro soccer. Rawlins was relentless in building a franchise from the ground up, overcoming crippling setbacks, devious politics, and near financial ruin. Underpinning his efforts was a deep commitment to re-creating the tribal passion and community spirit of his hometown team in the United Kingdom, Stoke City, for which he served as board member for fourteen years. The payoff was the Orlando City Soccer Club, an attractive new team that galvanized the region. The subsequent acquisition of international superstar Ricardo Kaká catapulted the club to celebrity status and ensured that its debut season defied expectations. Defying Expectations gives insight into the challenges faced on the road to success, challenges through which Rawlins has remained focused on the six core values that he and his wife formulated at their kitchen table years ago, continuing to foster a community institution that gives back as much as it receives.

LEARN HOW TO SPOT TALENT, BUILD A GREAT TEAM, AND WIN IN BUSINESS! Ted Sundquist was educated at the U.S. Air Force Academy. He played and coached football for the Academy, served as a flight commander in Germany, and went on to become General Manager of the Denver Broncos. In other words, Sundquist has spent his entire adult life building powerful, effective teams that get things done. In Taking Your Team to the Top, Sundquist gives you the knowledge, skills, and motivation to replicate his remarkable success. Whether you run a global corporation or small business, you'll learn how to accurately evaluate new hires from enormous talent pools, quickly implement them into your organization's existing team culture, and create a dedicated mission statement to maximize team success. In this groundbreaking guide, Sundquist combines the sum total of his vast and diverse leadership experience with lessons and insights from some of today's top leadership experts, including: DANA PERINO, White House Press Secretary for President George W. Bush DR. TOM OSBORNE, Head Coach of the University of Nebraska football team and U.S. Congressman DR. HARVEY SCHILLER, Commissioner of the SEC and Secretary General of the U.S. Olympic Committee ED ROSKI, one of the Forbes 200 richest people in America JEFF PASH, Executive VP and General Counsel of the NFL CHAD HENNINGS, three-time Super Bowl Champion and defensive tackle for the Dallas Cowboys You can have the best business strategy available. But without the best and brightest people collaborating in a healthy way to execute that strategy, it's only worth the paper it's printed on. Taking Your Team to the Top offers the fundamentals you need to unlock individuals' abilities and talents while adding to team synergy to accomplish any business objective, in any business--large or small. PRAISE FOR TAKING YOUR TEAM TO THE TOP: "Ted Sundquist outlines in detail how to organize and lead a corporation to real success. He provides a plan to reach this success while always emphasizing the importance of personal involvement, compassion, and caring for your people (employees). I highly recommend Taking Your Team to the Top for all CEOs of every level." -- Lt. General Winfield W. Scott, Jr., United States Air Force "Having had the opportunity to play under Ted's leadership on the Denver Broncos, I came to highly respect him not only as a person but for his managerial skills that lead us to two Super Bowl championships.... If you are seeking insight into how to best build, manage, and lead your team to success, this book is an absolute must-have." -- Jason Elam, All-Pro Placekicker, NFL 1993-2009 "In a world quick to measure short-term performance, we often get fleeting temporary results. I love how Ted challenges some of these norms and embraces a leadership style that is others-focused: built around compassion, chemistry and ultimately a long-term lasting impact. This book is a great read for the leader who is looking to leverage his or her position for real impact and influence on others." -- Jeff Nolde, Vice President, Values Based Wealth Management, Morgan Stanley "Ted has drawn on his experience as an athlete, military officer, and NFL club executive to create a valuable and practical guide for anyone in a position of leadership, whether it be business or sports executive, a head coach or entrepreneur." -- Jack Mills, President, Ascent Sports

Who really looks after British interests abroad? Behind the pomp of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, another powerful force is busily but discreetly propping up the image of UK Plc. For 28 years, Julia was a 'diplomatic spouse', juggling a growing family while supporting the demands of one of the great Offices of State. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes terrifying, she reveals the truth of the realities of life as an Ambassador's wife, ranging from food shortages to terrorist incidents to rubbing shoulders with the Queen, Mrs Thatcher and George Best - and rubbing knees with Mikhail Gorbachev. Light-hearted in style, The Ambassador's Wife Tale has a serious core message: that the diplomatic wife stands centre stage as the drama of world affairs unfolds.

A helicopter ride to visit troops in the Afghanistan war zone, a tense meeting with the newly elected Prime Minister, and…a wild boar hunt! Eleni Kounalakis was forty-three and a land developer in Sacramento, California, when she was tapped by President Barack Obama to serve as the U.S. ambassador to Hungary under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. During her tenure, from 2010 to 2013, Hungary was a key ally in the U.S. military surge, held elections in which a center-right candidate gained a two-thirds supermajority and rewrote the country’s constitution, and grappled with the rise of Hungarian nationalism and anti-semitism. The first Greek-American woman ever to serve as a U.S. ambassador, Kounalakis recounts her training at the State Department’s “charm school” and her three years of diplomatic life in Budapest—from protocols about seating, salutations, and embassy security to what to do when the deposed King of Greece hands you a small chocolate crown (eat it, of course!). A cross between a foreign policy memoir and an inspiring personal family story—her immigrant Greek father went from agricultural day laborer to land developer and major Democratic party activist—Madam Ambassador draws back the curtain on what it is like to represent the U.S. government abroad as well as how American embassies around the world function.

This book is simultaneously a scientific study, a practical guide and diplomatic memoir about the new era in China’s development, which began in 2013 with Xi Jinping coming to power. It explores the modern Chinese experience of the political centralization of power, the fight against corruption, strengthening the country’s defense system, reinforcing the country’s diplomacy, the political rapprochement between China and Russia, and exacerbation of relations with the United States. It also considers issues of China’s adjusting its policy of reforms and its openness to a new era, transforming inefficient state-owned enterprises, building an IT-focused country, and overcoming phobias in the construction of the “Belt and Road” initiative related to the “debt trap” and the “trade deficit”, as well as the role of the Huawei Corporation. A separate section of the book is devoted to Belarus-China relations, exploring the reasons for the political rapprochement between these two very different countries.
