DISCUSS 2 TITLES - LAST MONTH & THIS

The Spy and the Traitor: The Greatest Espionage Story of the Cold War
by Ben MacIntyre

He took his first posting for Russian  intelligence in 1968 and eventually became the Soviet Union's top man in  London, but from 1973 on he was secretly working for MI6. Desperate to keep the  circle of trust close, MI6 never revealed Gordievsky's name to its  counterparts in the CIA, which in turn grew obsessed with figuring out  the identity of Britain's obviously top-level source.

AUTHOR TO VISIT IN JULY

Wings of Mayhem
by Sue Coletta


Shawnee Daniels - computer forensics specialist/hacker for RPD by day,  cat burglar by night - always believed her "fearlessness rules" mantra  would keep her on top and out of jail. When she hacks a confiscated hard  drive at the Revere P.D., she focuses on a white-collar criminal  accused of embezzlement. To teach him a lesson and recoup the funds she  breaks into his massive contemporary in Bear Clave Estates. Jack has  even more secrets, deadly secrets, secrets worth killing over.

The Measure of a Man: A Spiritual Autobiography  by Sidney Poitier


Poitier looks back on his celebrated life and career. His body of work is  arguably the most morally significant in cinematic history, and the  power and influence of that work are indicative of the character of the  man behind the many storied roles. Sidney Poitier here explores these  elements of character and personal values to take his own  measure—as a man, as a husband and a father, and as an actor.
