MI6 sends veteran operative Lorraine Broughton to recover the list. But she walks into a powder keg of social unrest, counter-espionage, defections gone bad, and secret assassinations...
The Coldest City is a brand new spy thriller from author Antony Johnston and artist Sam Hart that revitalizes classic espionage fiction and revels in the paranoia and mistrust boiling over at the epicenter of the Cold War.

Review of God’s Good Man: A Simple Love Story, by Marie Corelli
Anna Green Winslow November 29, — July 19, , a member of the prominent Winslow family of Boston , Massachusetts, United States, was a girl who wrote a series of letters to her mother between and that portray the daily life of the gentry in Boston at the first stirrings of the American Revolution. Anna was born in in Nova Scotia , where her father, Army officer Joshua Winslow , had moved to serve as commissary-general of the British forces there. Her mother, born Anna Green, was the daughter of a wealthy merchant and Joshua Winslow's cousin. On the Winslow side, Anna's great-great-great grandfather was John Winslow, the older brother of Pilgrim Edward Winslow , who arrived on the Mayflower ,  as did Anna's great-great-great grandmother, Mary Chilton. The Winslows, unable to find in Halifax the society or the advanced schooling that would "finish" their daughter Anna, sent the then year-old girl to Boston to live with Judge Winslow's older sister, Sarah Deming, and her husband. According to her diary, Anna moved in the highest social circles. Some of her companions went on to marry future generals, wealthy merchants, eminent clergymen, and other notable men.

IN the year , a bright little girl ten years of age, Anna Green Winslow, was sent from her far away home in Nova Scotia to Boston, the birthplace of her parents, to be "finished" at Boston schools by Boston teachers. She wrote, with evident eagerness and loving care, for the edification of her parents and her own practice in penmanship, this interesting and quaint diary, which forms a most sprightly record, not only of the life of a young girl at that time, but of the prim and narrow round of daily occurrences in provincial Boston. In no contemporary record or account, no matter who the writer, can be found such a vivacious and witty description of the modish hairdressing of that day as in the pages of this diary.
