  • Author Martin Stillwater has the perfect life. He and his wife Paige are happy together. Their two daughters, Charlotte and Emily are intelligent, well-adjusted and healthy. Martin's novels are at last achieving success. Though he doesn't like the publicity, he's about to be in People magazine. So why does he experience sudden blackouts and feel such dread? The killer doesn't know his name, his past or his future, he has no family or friends, he doesn't know who gives him his assignments - only that the targets must die. He cries when he is overwhelmed by his loneliness, tortured by the meaninglessness of his life. He senses that beyond the horizon, there is a town, where a life awaits him and he has family and friends. Charlotte knows there is something wrong. The man stands, sits, moves and sounds like Daddy.  But he doesn't smile as often or as quickly as usual. And when he does smile, he's pretending. Daddy isn't Daddy....Cover art  by Lee Gibbons.

Back at UMCPHQ a developing power struggle may prove to be an even greater threat. The UMC police want to intercept the Trumpet before the secrets it carries are spread abroad.

  • 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.
