Since time immemorial, the Spires have sheltered humanity, towering for miles over the mist-shrouded surface of the world. Within their halls, aristocratic houses have ruled for generations, developing scientific marvels, fostering trade alliances, and building fleets of airships to keep the peace. Captain Grimm commands the merchant ship, Predator. Fiercely loyal to Spire Albion, he has taken their side in the cold war with Spire Aurora, disrupting the enemy's shipping lines by attacking their cargo vessels. But when the Predator is severely damaged in combat, leaving captain and crew grounded, Grimm is offered a proposition from the Spirearch of Albion -- to join a team of agents on a vital mission in exchange for fully restoring Predator to its fighting glory. And even as Grimm undertakes this dangerous task, he will learn that the conflict between the Spires is merely a premonition of things to come. Humanity's ancient enemy, silent for more than ten thousand years, has begun to stir once more. And death will follow in its wake.

'The Christophe Rocancourt Affair' is based upon a true story of events that happened to the 'Counterfeit Rockefeller" when he was in Canada that finally led to his capture, detainment, and extradition to the United States. This story has been reconstructed from the author's personal interviews of witnesses, lawyers, police investigative interviews and reports hand fed me from Crown Prosecutor Catherine Murray's office during the publication ban, along with Crown transcripts from actual Canadian court proceedings and media releases. When my request for a personal interview with Christophe Rocancourt during his detainment in Canada, was submitted via his lawyers, Mr. Mayland McKimm and Sue Wishart, it was Christophe Rocancourt's decision to respectfully decline the opportunity to sustain or refute or add to information sources.

The Italian love affair with sport is passionate, voracious, and all-consuming. It provides a backdrop and a narrative to almost every aspect of daily life in Italy and the distinctively pink-colored newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport is devoured by more than three million hungry readers every day. Narrating the history of modern Italy through its national passion for sport, Sport Italia provides a completely new portrayal of one of Europe’s most alluring, yet contradictory countries, tracing the highs and lows of Italy’s sporting history from its Liberal pioneers through Mussolini, the 1960 Rome Olympics to the Berlusconi era. By interweaving essential themes of Italian history, its politics, society, and economy with a history of the passion for sport in the country, Simon Martin tells the story of modern Italy in a fresh, new, and interesting way, illustrating how and why sport is so strongly embedded in both politics and society, and how it is inseparable from the concept of Italian national identity. Showing sport’s capacity to both unite and deeply divide, this book reveals a novel and previously unexplored element of the history of a society and its state, which will be an essential read for sports fans, historians, and students alike.
