Larivière Espionage Thrillers: Spies and Geopolitical Action

Former French spy and award-winning thriller writer

Smart, modern spy thrillers by former top-level French intelligence officer and award-winning thriller writer Bernard Besson. A team of freelance operatives navigates in today's complex world of espionage and global economic warfare while trying to lead normal lives in Paris. They struggle to maintain their independence where the loyalties of official agencies are not so clear and corruption and political machinations are everywhere. These thrillers are "intelligent and literate," with storytelling reminiscent of Clive Cussler.
