New York Times bestselling author of The Tourist, Olen Steinhauer, lauded as "one of the hottest names in spy fiction today," by USA Today, has consistently shown an unmatched talent for writing suspense and intrigue.

Now, here together for the first time in a terrific eBook bundle are the first three works in Steinhauer's Yalta Boulevard series, which centers on the homicide department in an unnamed Eastern European capital city.

The Bridge of Sighs
In Olen Steinhauer's Edgar-nominated debut, young and inexperienced homicide detective Emil Brod struggles to solve the murder of a state songwriter amid the lawlessness of a politically volatile, post-WWII Eastern Europe.

The Confession
Moving into the 1950s, Comrade Inspector Ferenc Kolyeszar, another detective in the state militia's homicide department, is asked to look into the disappearance of a party member's wife, but when he discovers that she might have run away from her abusive husband, he wishes he could do anything but return her to him.

36 Yalta Boulevard
Now in the 1960s, secretive State Security Officer Brano Sev is asked to travel to his hometown for an interrogation, but when he arrives he finds himself framed for murder.

Praise for The Yalta Boulevard Thrillers, Books 1-3

“Stunning…It has become de rigeur to compare Steinhauer to le Carré, but it's nearly time to pass the torch: for the next generation, it's Steinhauer who will become the standard by which others are measured.” —Booklist (starred) on The Cairo Affair

“Elaborate, sophisticated…A long, twisty road full of cleverly placed potholes and unexpected turns…Mr. Steinhauer draws his spies as flesh-and-blood characters.” —Janet Maslin, The New York Times, on The Cairo Affair

“Not since le Carré has a writer so vividly evoked the multilayered, multifaceted, deeply paranoid world of espionage, in which identities and allegiances are malleable and ever shifting, the mirrors of loyalty and betrayal reflecting one another to infinity. In this intensely clever, sometimes baffling book, it's never quite clear who is manipulating whom, and which side is up.” —The New York Times Book Review on The Tourist

“Stunning…Readers are irresistibly drawn into Weaver's dogged struggle to unravel a complicated game of cat and mouse…Steinhauer is at the top of his game--but when isn't he?” —USA Today on The Tourist

“Here's the best spy novel I've ever read that wasn't written by John le Carré.” —Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly, on The Tourist
