Mark Treasure Synopses: Advertise for Treasure by David Williams is the seventh book in the Mark Treasure series. The 2 million pound takeover bid for London advertising agency RTB is not without its strings attached. An American buyer, his two partners, RTB’s biggest client, a devious company broker, and the head of a rival agency are all involved, and Mark Treasure can’t accept the coroner’s verdict when one of them dies.

Treasure in Roubles by David Williams is the tenth book featuring Mark Treasure. On a trip to Leningrad, Mark Treasure expects to enjoy the culture and endure the tedium of packaged travel, but 13 varied companions, a stolen painting and a spectacular murder make the trip a lot less tedious. Treasure teams up with an endearingly cynical KGB colonel.
