The Janitor and the Spy
As the plane touches down in Amsterdam, Thomas Thornhill puts on his suit jacket and with it his best impression of composure—his first mission as a spy has truly begun. But what was supposed to be a simple information-gathering errand quickly escalates into a dangerous misadventure when a gang of local thugs ambushes Thornhill and his contact, an old man named Golay.
Reeling, Thornhill grows suspicious of Golay and wonders if any of his intel is true—especially regarding the mysterious organization known only as 12. Then he finds out that his own “simple” mission is off the record, and suddenly Thornhill finds himself adrift in a sea of questions: Who is telling the truth? Whom can he trust? What is his assignment really about?
The Janitor and the Spy sprints after Thornhill as he races through the streets of Amsterdam in search of answers. A breakout thriller from new author S. W. Ellenwood, the story holds as many surprises for the reader as it does for its lead character and, page by page, will pull you inextricably into its web of secrets.
The Dragon and the Lumberjack
The sequel to S. W. Ellenwood's debut novel, The Janitor and the Spy, picks up six months after Thomas Thornhill's nightmare mission in Amsterdam. On his own, he now goes under the alias of Jack Montferrand and seeks to gain entry into the oldest and most dangerous triad in Asia to find Them.
On the inside, he found the triad not as stable as he thought, forcing him to prove his trust and worth to them at every turn as new rivals sprout up. He plunges his hands deeper into the filth and the alias of Jack where he starts to wonder where Thomas ends and Jack begins.
