The broadband X-ray emission from radio-quiet active galactic nuclei (AGNs) is the only probe of their central engines available at present. Deep broadband X-ray observations are providing a wealth of information on AGNs. Here I discuss XMM-Newton and Suzaku observations of two AGNs with particular emphasis on the broad Iron Kα line, Compton reflection, and new inferences from the observations of partial covering X-ray absorption.
