‘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.

Imperium . . . Conspirata . . . and now Dictator—the long-awaited final volume of Robert Harris’s magnificent Ancient Rome Trilogy At the age of forty-eight, Cicero—the greatest orator of his time—is in exile, separated from his wife and children, tormented by his sense of failure, his great power sacrificed on the altar of his principles. And yet, in the words of one of his most famous aphorisms, “While there is life, there is hope.” By promising to support Caesar—his political enemy—he is granted return to Rome. There, he fights his way back to prominence: first in the law courts, then in the Senate, and finally by the power of his pen, until at last, for one brief and glorious period, he is again the preeminent statesman in the city. Even so, no public figure, however brilliant and cunning, is completely safeguarded against the unscrupulous ambition and corruption of others. Riveting and tumultuous, Dictator encompasses some of the most epic events in ancient history—the collapse of the Roman Republic and the subsequent civil war, the murder of Pompey, the assassination of Julius Caesar. But the central problem it presents is a timeless one: how to keep political freedom unsullied by personal ambition, vested interests, and the erosive effects of ceaseless, senseless foreign wars. In Robert Harris’s indelible portrait, Cicero attempts to answer this question with both his thoughts and his deeds, becoming a hero—brilliant, flawed, frequently fearful yet ultimately brave—both for his own time and for ours. From the Hardcover edition.

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.
