In 1941, the war appears to be going badly on many fronts, but Britain, battered, bloody and almost bankrupt, limps on. Churchill knows his country cannot win the war alone. An alliance with America is paramount and Churchill is determined to develop and use a friendship with Averall Harriman, American Ambassador to Britain and personal friend of President Franklin Roosevelt. But his son's wife exploits the friendship first. Pamela's passionate affair presents Churchill with the appalling dilemma between saving his country and allowing his son Randolph to be cuckolded. America continued resolute against fighting, but by the year's close Pearl Harbour had forced America into the war. Why had the Japanese been persuaded to attack American targets? And how were rumours of the attack prevented from reaching American ears? Decisions of love and war are often matters of perception. And so it was in this case

Yalta, 4th February, 1945. At the close of war, the three most powerful men on earth gather to thrash out the details of peace: the cantankerous Winston Churchill, the idealistic but ailing Franklin Roosevelt, and Joseph Stalin, perhaps the bloodiest butcher of all time. Over eight days these men will lie, cheat and deceive each other as they struggle to find an agreement and secure their places in history. Meanwhile, as the smoke rises above Europe, a Polish soldier tries to make his way back home. He has cheated death many times but his luck is running out - though he'll still risk everything to find his daughter, missing in the ruins of Warsaw. For this man, and many like him, the enemy is everywhere

1941: The exotic city of Alexandria, the Royal Navy's major Eastern Mediterranean base, is virtually under siege by the Afrika Korps. A particularly lethal threat to warships is being posed by Italian frogmen and their so-called "human torpedoes". Hardly the time or place for a British submarine commander to fall in love; especially as the girl in question is half-Italian, and Alexandria's large Italian population is only too eager to welcome Rommel and his troops into town. Interspersed with scenes of naval action described in gripping and authentic detail - and seen through Italian as much as through British eyes - the human drama unfolds, its actors ever aware of the mounting threat of a German breakthrough

The sacred art of stealing by Christopher Brookmyre( Sound Recording )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 56 libraries worldwide
The press tends to talk about bank robberies as daring, ingenious or audacious, never as "Dadaist", even the ones who know what "Dadaist" means. But how else does one explain choreographed dancing gunmen in Buchanan Street, or the surreal methods they use to stay one step ahead of the cops? Angelique do Xavia is no art critic, but she is a connoisseur of crooks, and she's sure that this heist isn't the work of the usual sawn-offs-and-black-tights criminal. It's her job to hunt this unique species of thief to extinction - though the fact that it's not just his modus operandi that's cute might prove a distraction. This thief, however, has greater concerns than his own safety, and a secret agenda more valuable than anything he might steal. He can afford to play cat and mouse with a female cop; it might even be necessary
