Thomas Kell thought he was done with spying. A former MI6 officer, he devoted his life to the Service, but it has left him with nothing but grief and a simmering anger against the Kremlin.

Then Kell is offered an unexpected chance at revenge. Taking the law into his own hands, he embarks on a mission to recruit a top Russian spy who is in possession of a terrifying secret. As Kell tracks his man from Moscow to London, he finds himself in a high stakes game of cat and mouse in which it becomes increasingly difficult to know who is playing whom.

Audio: A doomed lagoon

Earthly Remains is Donna Leon’s 26th Commissario Guido Brunetti mystery. Read by David Colacci, who has become the voice and soul of the commissario, it’s as evocative, engaging and thoughtful as all the other books in this acclaimed series. If you’ve met Brunetti, his family, his comrades in arms and his foes at the Venice Questura before, you know that there won’t be any shootouts and that the commissario is as comfortable reading Pliny as he is questioning a murder suspect. Given a chance to take a stress-induced leave, Brunetti sets out to spend two weeks on Sant’Erasmo, an island in the Venetian Lagoon. His plan is to row with Davide, a beekeeper and the elderly caretaker of the villa he’s staying in. But as they skim the waterways, Brunetti learns that reckless dumping has poisoned Davide’s serene Laguna and the bees he cherishes. When Davide dies during a storm, Brunetti must determine if it’s an accident or a crime linked to the old man’s former life and to the despair shrouding him since the death of his beloved wife.

THE SPOOK GAME
After the woman he loved was murdered by his Russian counterpart, Alexander Minasian, Thomas Kell decided that he was done with MI6, done with “the life.” But revenge is a powerful lure, and when a former colleague tells Kell that he saw Minasian having a lover’s spat with a gay German man in Egypt, Kell is hellbent on using this info to turn Minasian into a double agent for the Brits. So begins Charles Cumming’s A Divided Spy, his latest intriguingly convoluted thriller, read by Jot Davies, who gets all the accents just right. But as these men play their high-stakes game, they begin to reveal some of their inner doubts, their shared concerns that years of spying and lying can eat your soul, that spies lead a “divided life,” always edged by loyalty and betrayal. As the intricate plot unfolds, with backstories galore and a searing subplot taken from the headlines, you can’t help but be caught up in the story, rooting for Kell, but not really wanting to lose Minasian. I hope they’ll turn up again.

TOP PICK IN AUDIO
It’s become a cliché to say that a book or an article should be required reading. But Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions should be mandatory for everyone, even if feminism is not a term you’re comfortable with. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s manifesto began as a letter to a friend who asked her how to raise her baby girl to be a feminist. Her response is not feminism light or feminism doctrinaire—it’s a solid, piercingly provocative take on the often unnoticed ways we transmit cultural norms, like gender inequality. Before we even get to the suggestions, Adichie wants you to understand that her feminism is always contextual and that her first “solid, unbending” premise is “I matter equally. Full stop.” Adichie’s ideas, as they are laid out here in her engaging, witty style, form a map of her feminist thinking, and that map is important for all women and the men who love them. It might change the way you view yourself and your world. January LaVoy reads with just the right emotional understanding and nuance.
