Somewhere along the cobbled streets of Paris, an apartment lies thick with dust and secrets: full of priceless artworks hidden away for decades. High-flying fine art agent Flora from London, more comfortable with the tension of a million-pound auction than a cosy candlelit dinner for two, is called in to assess these suddenly discovered treasures. As an expert in her field, she must trace the history of each painting and discover who has concealed them for so long. Thrown in amongst the glamorous Vermeil family as they move between Paris and Antibes, Flora begins to discover that things aren't all that they seem, while back at home her own family is recoiling from a seismic shock. The terse and brooding Xavier Vermeil seems intent on forcing Flora out of his family's affairs – but just what is he hiding?

" Paris, dans ses permanentes métamorphoses, accumule les secrets les plus dépareillés, les invraisemblances les mieux déguisées par l'histoire, les légendes bétonnées dans la réalité et toute la palette des possibles. " Michel Dansel, enfant de Belleville et de Ménilmontant, définit ainsi, dans une préface savoureuse, sa vision de notre capitale, " véritable kaléidoscope " dont il dévoile les multiples facettes, souvent baroques et extravagantes, avec la curiosité passionnée d'un promeneur " pathologiquement " amoureux de sa ville. Il n'est pas d'avenue, pas de coin de rue qui, pour l'auteur, ne comporte une part d'énigme, de trouble et de merveilleux. Historien et archéologue à sa manière, cet arpenteur d'un Paris insolite et clandestin est prodigue en trouvailles originales et singulières, parfois invérifiables mais toujours vraisemblables. Ainsi évoque-t-il la présence possible d'une cité souterraine dans le quartier du Marais où quatre enfants auraient découvert en 1965 une grotte préhistorique vieille de dix-sept mille ans, dont les peintures seraient comparables à celles retrouvées à Lascaux ; les " trésors cachés " qui se trouveraient dans la statue équestre d'Henri IV, sur le Pont-Neuf ; l'histoire d'une célèbre maison close située au 12, rue Chabanais, dans le 2e arrondissement ; l'existence d'un cimetière des bossus dans celui de Saint-Côme ; d'un club des divorcés qui se réunissait avenue Bosquet ; d'une clinique spécialisée dans la réparation des poussettes et landaus de collection, 16, rue du Chalet, dans le 10e ; d'un pont des suicidés dans le parc des Buttes-Chaumont... Chaque lieu emblématique ou endroit méconnu de Paris est ainsi raconté et révélé sous son aspect légendaire et anecdotique, loin des vérités de l'histoire officielle. La manière à la fois la plus instructive et la plus divertissante qui soit de nous faire découvrir les secrets d'une cité aux trésors inépuisables.

In a tale of friendship, self-discovery and love, three women running away from their lives become unlikely friends in a beautiful house in the heart of Paris. Lost in France, a country she mistrusts, among French people she hardly understands, Annie has trouble venturing away from home since the death of her husband. And since home happens to be a small jewel of a house nestled in the heart of Paris, why would she ever want to? But when bankruptcy threatens her beloved house, her one anchor in life, Annie has no choice but to find renters, and quick. Leave it to someone socially phobic to phrase a want ad in all the wrong ways. With shimmering promises of ‘Starting over in Paris’ –– a concept she has no intention of applying to her own life–– Annie attracts tenants with the kind of baggage that doesn’t fit in suitcases. A long-legged, cool-headed ex model (everything Annie is definitely not) on the run from her abusive husband, a frail young woman harboring a possible death wish, a mysterious French artist, and an infuriating blue-blooded French man soon threaten Annie’s way of life in ways she never anticipated. But when Annie finds herself reluctantly yet actively engaged in the rescue of her tenants, she discovers that she might just save herself in the process.

'The most comprehensive narrative of intelligence compiled ... unrivalled' Max Hastings, Sunday Times 'Captivating, insightful and masterly' Edward Lucas, The Times The history of espionage is far older than any of today's intelligence agencies, yet the long history of intelligence operations has been largely forgotten. The first mention of espionage in world literature is in the Book of Exodus.'God sent out spies into the land of Canaan'. From there, Christopher Andrew traces the shift in the ancient world from divination to what we would recognize as attempts to gather real intelligence in the conduct of military operations, and considers how far ahead of the West - at that time - China and India were. He charts the development of intelligence and security operations and capacity through, amongst others, Renaissance Venice, Elizabethan England, Revolutionary America, Napoleonic France, right up to sophisticated modern activities of which he is the world's best-informed interpreter. What difference have security and intelligence operations made to course of history? Why have they so often forgotten by later practitioners? This fascinating book provides the answers.
