‘Laws are silent in times of war.’ Cicero There was a time when Cicero held Caesar’s life in the palm of his hand. But now Caesar is the dominant figure and Cicero’s life is in ruins. Exiled, separated from his wife and children, his possessions confiscated, his life constantly in danger, Cicero is tormented by the knowledge that he has sacrificed power for the sake of his principles. His comeback requires wit, skill and courage – and for a brief and glorious period, the legendary orator is once more the supreme senator in Rome. But politics is never static and no statesman, however cunning, can safeguard against the ambition and corruption of others. Riveting and tumultuous, DICTATOR encompasses some of the most epic events in human history yet is also an intimate portrait of a brilliant, flawed, frequently fearful yet ultimately brave man – a hero for his time and for ours. This is an unforgettable tour de force from a master storyteller.

From the author of The Bird Factory, a new novel about an estranged father and son forced together under the same roof—one losing his grip on reality and the other discovering a secret past that he may never fully understand. Aaron, unhappy in middle age, must deal with the reverberations of the financial crisis, his increasingly alienated teenaged daughter and the sudden care of his father, Karl, a man he hardly knows, who is descending into Alzheimer’s. Karl is a man who has survived by reinventing himself many times over. Blustering, arrogant, he is convinced that the world is intentionally trying to confuse him, not least his good-for-nothing son. Not like his other son, the one he left behind. If only Karl could remember his name, and where he is, Karl would go and find him. With a deft touch and a wonderful ability to show the humorous in the tragic, David Layton has created a novel that explores the relationship between fathers and sons, and how the events of the past translate down through generations. Told from the alternating perspectives of Karl and Aaron, and travelling from present-day Toronto to a postwar settlement of Jewish immigrants in the Dominican Republic, The Dictator is at turns funny, poignant and insightful.

A number one bestselling Roman thriller from the award-winning master of the literary and historical thriller genre: Robert Harris. A thrilling depiction of one of the most famous natural disasters in human history: the explosion of Mount Vesuvius. A sweltering week in late August. Where better to enjoy the last days of summer than on the beautiful Bay of Naples? But even as Rome's richest citizens relax in their villas around Pompeii and Herculaneum, there are ominous warnings that something is going wrong. Wells and springs are failing, a man has disappeared, and now the greatest aqueduct in the world - the mighty Aqua Augusta - has suddenly ceased to flow. Through the eyes of four characters - a young engineer, an adolescent girl, a corrupt millionaire and an elderly scientist - Robert Harris brilliantly recreates a luxurious world on the brink of destruction.

Conspirata is “a portrait of ancient politics as a blood sport,” raves The New York Times. As he did with Imperium, Robert Harris again turns Roman history into a gripping thriller as Cicero faces a new power struggle in a world filled with treachery, violence, and vengeance. On the eve of Cicero’s inauguration as consul of Rome, a grisly discovery sends fear rippling through a city already racked by unrest. A young slave boy has been felled by a hammer, his throat slit and his organs removed, apparently as a human sacrifice. For Cicero, the ill omens of this hideous murder only increase his dangerous situation: elected leader by the people but despised by the heads of the two rival political camps. Caught in a shell game that leaves him forever putting out fires only to have them ignite elsewhere, Cicero plays for the future of the republic…and his life. There is a plot to assassinate him, abetted by a rising young star of the Roman senate named Gaius Julius Caesar—and it will take all the embattled consul’s wit, strength, and force of will to stop the plot and keep Rome from becoming a dictatorship.

The Tall Man with the Golden hair glided to the Desk and leaned on the edge of it, Arms folded, his eyes never leaving his Guest. "Mr. Smiley, I cannot give you any Details, but it is my Opinion that an Event is about to Happen, that will Demand All of the World's Free Nations to Band Together." Tavis Smiley Blurted Out, "are you talking of War, here, Sir? Is Europe about to be Attacked? What are you saying?" "No, there will not be War. Not just yet. However, such a Military Holocaust is Possible within a Few Months in the Middle East. I am not sure myself, Tavis, of the Actual Event that is about to Transpire. I Only know that because of it, your United States of America will be Forced into a Treaty, but Military. We will be BOUND TOGETHER FOREVER, my Friend." Tavis Smiley moved to get up. " Well, of course, we are Allies with our NATO Friends. We always Stand at their side to..." The Transformation in Jacque Bush was sudden. His Blue eyes Flashed Fire. " Tavis, you do not understand. Please just listen! What I am saying to you is that the Governments of Europe and your own United States will very soon be Forced to Merge into One Vast Western Entity. ONE GOVERNMENT. ONE ARMY. ONE MONEY SYSTEM. ONE LEADER. The two Entities will be known as EUROAMERICA. And when that Happens, Mr. Smiley...And it's Going to Happen no Later than the End of the Year 2016, just months from now...I shall need your Assistance most Assuredly." Tavis Smiley was now more angry than Frightened. " Sir, I do not Discount your Knowledge, nor do I Violate your Hospitality here. But such a Thing as you have Stated cannot Happen. It will not 'Happen'. The United States would Never agree to such an Amalgamation of Nations or…." The Fire in Jacque Bush's eyes had Disappeared. They turned to a Hateful, Baleful, Dead Blue. " Believe me, Mr. Smiley. Believe me that it will Happen. I Repeat... by Year's End. EUROAMERICA will be Formed, and it will Last for 1,000 years or More." I truly think the Holy Bible is overrated, yeah people say it is the bestselling book in the world. I respectfully refused to believe that, they just never heard yet about the new author Orion, and The Missing Billions book. Blessed love, Dark Matter at work HOTEP.
