The first in a gripping, fantasy mystery series, The Invisible Library is the astounding debut from Genevieve Cogman. Irene must be at the top of her game or she’ll be off the case - permanently... Irene is a professional spy for the mysterious Library, which harvests fiction from different realities. And along with her enigmatic assistant Kai, she’s posted to an alternative London. Their mission - to retrieve a dangerous book. But when they arrive, it’s already been stolen. London’s underground factions seem prepared to fight to the very death to find her book. Adding to the jeopardy, this world is chaos-infested - the laws of nature bent to allow supernatural creatures and unpredictable magic. Irene’s new assistant is also hiding secrets of his own. Soon, she’s up to her eyebrows in a heady mix of danger, clues and secret societies. Yet failure is not an option - the nature of reality itself is at stake. The Invisible Library is followed by the second adventurous title in the The Invisible Library series, The Masked City.

A man on the road and on the run, he is hiding in a small Northern California town when his room is broken into by a desperate young man on the trail of the state's most prolific serial killer. Isaiah's former sidekick Dodson has also had to change life, in an attempt to keep his wife and child. His devil's bargain is an internship at an LA advertising agency, where it turns out the rules of the street have simply been dressed in business casual. The ageing company's fortunes may well rest on their ability to attract a younger demographic and Dodson - 'the hustler's hustler' - just may be the right man for the job.
