Will Cochrane is a seasoned, battle-scarred agent who will go all out to finish a job - to hell with convention or loyalty. His MI6 and CIA controllers know that Will is a wild card, but he may be the perfect weapon to bring down the worldÂs most wanted international terrorist mastermind, code named Megiddo. And Will has his own reasons for catching this madman: Megiddo may be responsible for his fatherÂs death. When Will finds a connection that might lure Megiddo out, he sets up an elaborate and dangerous trap, but the wily terrorist is still one step ahead of his hunter, and Will finds himself racing to find his prey and avoid an attack the likes of which the world has never seen.

Inspired by the author's widely acclaimed New York Times article, New American High is immersion reporting at its most compelling. Brooke Hauser takes us deep inside a unique New York City high school over the course of a year as she follows diverse newcomers whose lives are at once ordinary and extraordinary, international headlines brought to life. No native English-speaking students attend the International High School, and more than twenty-eight languages fill the halls. The students in this modern-day Babel apply to college, fall in love, and rebel against their families like normal teenagers, but many deal with enormous obstacles - traumas and wars in their countries of origin that haunt them and pressures from their cultures to marry or drop out and go to work.
