Come and meet the acclaimed Australian-American suspense novelist, JAMES HOUSTON TURNER, author of Department Thirteen and The Identity Factor.

Department Thirteen -- hailed as "Ludlumesque" by The Dallas Morning News and "Unputdownable" by News Ltd -- chronicles a week in the life of retired KGB informant Aleksandr Talanov, who discovers he has broken the first rule of survival by unwittingly falling in love with the woman he must now fall OUT of love with if he is to save her from a mysterious team of assassins.

The Identity Factor scooped finalist awards in four US book competitions, including the Best Books Awards and The Eric Hoffer Award, and features headstrong rookie profiler Zoe Gustaves, who competes with a charming Texas journalist to unmask an international terrorist. Set in Austin, Cairo, Jerusalem, Washington DC, and San Francisco. Says famous TV bad guy, Adoni Maropis (who played the notorious Abu Fayed in the hit TV series, 24): "I love a great villain. Great villains demand great heroes and The Identity Factor has both."
