Some people are naturally brilliant, others have to buy it. What would you pay, to be one in a million? Framed for murder and on the run, former Olympic biathlete Kyle Achilles is also in the crosshairs of assassins' guns. Why? He has no idea. He's fighting blind against two master strategists and one extraordinary invention -- known as Brillyanc. Achilles' only ally is the other prime suspect, a beautiful Russian mathematician who is either the best or worst person to ever enter his life. Katya was engaged to Achilles' brother -- before he died. Chasing clues while dodging bullets, Achilles and Katya race around the globe, uncovering a conspiracy conceived in Moscow, born in Silicon Valley, and destined to demolish both the White House and the Kremlin. Along the way a lost soul finds purpose, a broken heart confronts forbidden love, and America gains a new hero. Packed with heart-stopping surprises, paced by razor-sharp plotting, and populated with richly rendered characters, Pushing Brilliance will leave you breathless and longing for more.

"Journey beneath the diplomatic veneer of international politics and beyond the reach of conventional military operations into the epicenter of clandestine affairs-- where diplomats dance and spies collide in wars that never make the news. As the next step in its expansionist agenda, the Kremlin devises a covert coup far more devastating than Bin Laden's most dangerous dream. With the American economy in his crosshairs, Russian President Vladimir Korovin picks suitable pawns and pulls sizable levers, initiating the boldest gambit the world has ever seen. Halfway around the world, the White House develops a plan for derailing Russian aggression. A way-off-the-books, high-risk, high-reward plan. American President William Silver identifies the perfect person for his impossible mission: former CIA operative Kyle Achilles. With their plans in place and their spies undercover, each president is confident that he has outplayed the other-- until everything goes wrong.

Rumor has it there's a Russian you can turn to if you're very rich, and need dirty deeds done without a trace. The CIA calls him Ivan the Ghost because he's operated for years without leaving a trail or revealing his face. Until now. For the first time in history, Ivan appears to have slipped. The CIA's new director sets Agent Kyle Achilles on an intercept course, surveilling the daughter of a British politician. Then Ivan pulls off a masterful con, and Emily vanishes. With Emily's life, his career, and America's reputation at stake, Achilles partners with an unlikely new agent he meets in Monte Carlo. Together they attempt to get one step ahead of the legendary Russian, while rubbing elbows with the ultra-rich in a high-tech international chase.

A DEVIOUS DEVICE A NEFARIOUS PLOT AND THE DEADLY MISTAKE OF MESSING WITH THE WRONG GUY From the #1 Best Selling Author of COERCION and BETRAYAL, FLASH is the story of four lives changed by desperation and one devious invention. An international thriller where biotechnology crosses the law, it's The Bourne Identity meets The Firm. "This story is so fast paced that I was afraid to put it down for fear it would rush on without me!" -- Sue Inge Two blood-spattered strangers awake locked in the trunk of a car--with a murdered cop and the smoking gun. Aside from raging headaches and no idea what has happened they appear to have nothing in common. Troy thinks it's 2001 and he's still a combat surgeon fighting terrorists in Afghanistan. Emmy believes it's 2002 and she's still grifting a living from the streets of L.A. Are they archenemies or co-conspirators? Lovers or friends? What the hell are they doing in the Caribbean? And why is a Croatian assassin determined to kill them? The only thing they do know for certain is that they'll be spending the rest of their lives in prison if the police catch them before they uncover the truth. "Amazingly addicting with great wit and dry sense of humor." --Elizabeth Barbarick for Stuffed Shelves Every once in a while, a story comes along that captures a reader's imagination from the opening pages and refuses to let go until the very last scene plays out. Flash is just such a read! Tim Tigner has delivered an extraordinary thriller that has everything a reader could desire: a well laid plot, unexpected twists and turns, eventual answers to all the mini-mysteries that are set forth along the way, great character development, sincerely genuine and likeable protagonists, and fully believable and despicable villains. --Patricia Reding for Readers' Favorite "The mystery grabs you from the first chapter and zips through tricky twists and turns." - Michelle Williams Not a moment goes by till the end of the book when readers won't be shocked, surprised and delightfully entertained. Flash is fast-paced and mysterious and highly recommended. --BookPleasures.com "I like this author!! I enjoy his sense of humor, his characters and his style." -- Connie L. Scheible The opening scene of this thriller is one of the most memorable and intriguing that I have read in a while.... This really is a cracking story, and you will keep turning the pages to find out what is going to happen next. --Chrissi for BookLore Reviews "Excellent action. Easy to follow and believable." - Merle R. Franks

A DEVIOUS DEVICE AN INTERNATIONAL CONSPIRACY AND THE DEADLY MISTAKE OF MESSING WITH THE WRONG GUY The phone rings and the offer is made. Betray your country or your family dies--right then, right there. The promise sounds real but there's no threat in sight, and you only have thirty seconds to decide. That's the choice select Americans face at the mercy of a ruthless KGB general. After the Iron Curtain's collapse, Russia appears to be finished as a superpower. But Vasily Karpov has a plan to restore his nation's glory by forcing Americans to betray their own. With the KGB's new secret weapon, Karpov is coercing America's elite into traitorous acts of espionage and sabotage. But when he murders the brother of former US soldier and spy Alex Ferris, he creates an opponent whose courage and cunning may prove his equal. Now, racing from San Francisco to Siberia, Alex must elude ambushes, assassins, and death from exposure as he wages a one-man war against the resurgence of the Soviets. "I wish I could give a cluster of stars rather than five to one of the BEST books I've ever read." -- Gwen Norcross Written by a former Green Beret and counterintelligence specialist with a decade of experience on the ground in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, COERCION brings a chilling alternative history to life with what Kirkus Reviews calls "well-paced action, appealing characters and snappy writing." "A brilliant, must-read thriller--as good or better than Tom Clancy & Robert Ludlum." - John Mariotti Coercion is the second of Tim Tigner's works that I have read (in as many days). Just as with the first, I was spellbound from the outset.... Tim Tigner has delivered in Coercion, a tale that is sure to rank amongst the best of today's thrillers. --Patricia Reding for Readers' Favorite "Tim Tigner gives us a grand novel on a scale that has not been seen for a long time." - William D. Curnutt This plan is very well thought out, and is chilling in its simplicity... the story flowed beautifully. -- Chrissi for BookLore Reviews "Calling all Clancy and Patterson lovers- add Tigner to your list of loves." -Jay Mittener

A DEVIOUS DEVICE THE BETRAYAL OF TRUST AND THE DEADLY MISTAKE OF MESSING WITH THE WRONG GUY Presumed dead after an attack blamed on Al-Qaeda, FBI agent Odysseus Carr is running for his life with the missionary doctor who rescued him in Iran. As Odi unravels a devious plot of profound political manipulation and global consequence, the hunted becomes the hunter, and then the real terror begins.... "Well-paced action, appealing characters and snappy writing." --Kirkus Reviews. An Amazon #1 Best Seller written by a former Green Beret, BETRAYAL "delivers the thrill of Vince Flynn, and the craft of Daniel Silva." "Best book I've read in years." -- Matt Mattocks This really is a cracking story, and you will keep turning the pages to find out what is going to happen next. I was lucky enough to read it whilst not at work, otherwise this is the kind of book to stay awake for 'just a few more pages'. It will stop you from sleeping and you will be glad of it. -- Chrissi for BookLore Review "As good as anything I've read from other thriller legends such as Tom Clancy." -- Jan Hearton There is not a dull moment in the book. The story is intellectually stimulating and the writing is cogent. All the characters contribute in their own unique way to the pace, intensity, depth and complexity of a gripping story that is sure to pull you in. -- M. Madhavan for Readers' Favorite "A pulse-pounding thrill ride!" -- Frances Edge The book is a tantalizingly dangerous thriller and perhaps part of its danger lies in the fact that it seems a little too plausible for comfort in today's political and terrorist-themed world. It's no surprise that Tim Tigner was once a Green Beret and specialized in counterintelligence - his expertise drives the story onward through some complicated waters and makes it totally realistic. This is the second time I've read a Tim Tigner novel and it seems to me his works are begging to be made into action movies - they have all the elements to keep viewers in their seats, if only on the edge. --Valerie for ValerieTalksBooks "An edge of your seat thriller." - Leslie Obrien

Your business can take a lesson from the American military's fighter pilots. At Mach 2, the instrument panel of an F-15 is screaming out information, the horizon is a blur, the wingman is occupied, the jet is hanging on the edge -- and yet fighter pilots routinely handle the stress. It's not much different in today's unforgiving business world. One slipup and your company is bankrupt before your employees know what hit them. What works on the squadron level for F-15 pilots will also work for your marketing team, sales force, or research and development group. By analyzing the work environment and attacking its centers of gravity in parallel, you'll begin to utilize the Plan-Brief-Execute-Debrief-Win cycle that will rapidly impact your business's future success. U.S. fighter squadrons have been using this program for nearly fifty years to reduce their mistake rate, cut casualties and equipment losses, and rack up an envious victory record. Now, with Flawless Execution, your business can too.
