  • In the not so distant future the world hasn't changed that much - men and women still laugh, fall in love and sip wine - but some will live forever as retreads, old souls surgically implanted into the empty bodies of the young. Voss Geraghty is a retread, a retiring government researcher rewarded with a new body. In this new life he wants fun, sex and adventure - what he finds is disappointment.  His 'shell' was donated by a young man who was not eager to die - the shell is damaged, Voss is impotent so he must settle for adventure this time out. In his unusual choice, Voss becomes a troubleshooter for the Space Service and an inadvertent hero. When he returns, the government, controlled by retreads, capitalises on his fame to support the immortality programme against an underground rebellion determined to overthrow the regime of death for the young so that the old may live eternally. The rebellion movement has the technology to cure Voss of his impotence in return for his help in destroying the retread centres.  Still he hesitates - until he meets Alicia and falls in love. He will die in the destruction of the retread centres - but he wants to experience love as well.

  • Or, Letters from a Gentleman of Excess. Until 1983, Jack Pollock was the owner of the Pollock Gallery of Toronto, where he exhibited new Canadian artists. Then, abruptly, he lost both his business and his health. Twenty years of flashy flamboyancy had led to drug addiction, open heart surgery, bankruptcy - and a profound spiritual and psychological  malaise. Broken, he retreated to the south of France, expecting to die. Instead, he began to come to terms with himself and his life, confiding his deepest feelings in a torrent of letters to M., a psychiatrist he had consulted briefly before his departure. The letters tell of his everyday life in France, his encounters with David Hockney and other artists, of religion and the power of sexuality: a courageously honest assessment of his life.

Manslaughter, drug running and gold smuggling are also alleged.  The declassified documents that Higham claims are not reproduced in this book - only listed.

  • World War II, the most massive and appalling military conflagration in history began on September 1, 1939 when Hitler's troops invaded Poland and from there, it spread inexorably in all directions. On December 7 1941, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbour, thus bringing the huge American armies into the picture and the Pacific was ablaze as Japan and America fought a devastating island-hopping war across the ocean. As well as swallowing millions of lives, the demands of the military machine gave rise to the atom bomb and the computer; the British Empire was dying but the Commonwealth was heralded; the war made Churchill and  the 'spiv'; it created rationing and the Welfare State; it slaughtered 6,000,000 Jews, broke marriages and laid waste to the European economy.  This is a graphic account of the fateful years that changed the world forever. Illustrated with black and white photos.
