The Tuesday Club by Katherine Neville

One morning in Paris, when Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams first meet to turn over the French Mission from Franklin to Jefferson, something unexpected and dangerous happens: it involves Franklin’s mistress, John Adams’ children, a British espionage ‘mole’ in Franklin’s embassy, an ancient sect of Scottish Freemasons, and a secret (but real) men’s Club of “musicians” in Annapolis, Maryland, who only meet on Tuesdays. It is up to Franklin and Jefferson (both masters of codes) to unravel the key to their plots, woven in esoteric mysteries, before they destroy the newly-fledged American Republic.

The Lunar Society by Katherine Neville

This very real group of prestigious industrialists traveled to their clandestine meetings by the light of the full moon, and called themselves “lunaticks!” It was comprised of pottery baron Josiah Wedgwood, James Watt and Matthew Boulton of steam engine fame, physician and botanist Erasmus Darwin (grandfather of Charles Darwin), William Small (teacher of Thomas Jefferson), and Benjamin Franklin. Though such meetings were forbidden by law, after the “Church and King” riots against intellectuals, these freethinkers were willing to risk all for their secret mission: the destruction of the “Triangular Trade” that had enriched the English upper classes for centuries, through import of sugar, coffee, rum and cotton, and the export of African slaves.

Cuba Libre by Katherine Neville

Why did Ernest Hemingway spend so much of his adult life in Cuba? Why did he stay there, even after after he won the Nobel prize in literature, even after the communist takeover of Cuba, after the US State Department ordered Americans to leave, after the CIA and FBI had opened files on him, even after his property was seized… And why — a little over six months after his return to America — did he commit suicide? These are the questions that New Mexico graduate student and Hemingway devotee, Paloma Perez, is researching for her dissertation, up at Hemingway’s last haunts in Idaho–when she suddenly disappears. Her brother Leopold, an analyst for “The Company,” must find out what his sister discovered about Hemingway and Cold War Cuba, that may have led to her death.
