    Robert Radcliffe writes: "In 2000 I began work on what would become a trilogy of books about World War II. Loosely set in 1943, the novels would feature some overlapping characters and locations, yet tell the stories of three very different aspects of the conflict: the air war over Europe, the Battle of the Atlantic, and the fall of Singapore and subsequent treatment of prisoners in the jungles of Thailand."

    This is the story of the rise and fall of one man against the background of his country’s history - bloody, tumultuous, yet immensely significant - since the revolution in 1917. Nikita Sergei Khrushchev was born in 1894 at Kalinovka where Great Russia borders the Ukraine. He was the child of peasants driven from the land by poverty. His grandfather had been born a serf; his father was a landless worker travelling to the coal fields of the Donetz Valley in the winter, in spring returning to the land.

    It is the year 1989 in the Angevin Empire - an alternative universe much like our own, save for two vital differences: the House of Plantagenet (the descendants of King Richard I the Lion-Heart and his nephew, Prince Arthur) still rules in England and France and the New World; and, the science of magic has displaced the magic of science. But magic can't solve everything. In a temple atop an ancient Azteque pyramid in New England, where bloody sacrifices were carried out and the beating hearts excised from living victims to appease a horrific god, lies a freshly-killed body....

    Peterson is bewildered by the satellite photos in front of him. As head of the CIA, he is never supposed to be surprised, but what could be happening in Chad alarms him. The pictures show a small research installation, nestled in the African jungle, where a West German company claims to be building a base to launch communications satellites for use by developing African nations. But Peterson’s analysts tell him that the ordinary, innocent-looking silo is just the size necessary to launch an intercontinental ballistic missile into outer space.

    On April 28, 1789, the H.M.S. Bounty was very far from home. After a long journey around the Cape of Good Hope, Captain William Bligh and his crew emerged into the hot, still air of the South Pacific, and a kind of madness began to take hold. Led by Fletcher Christian, eighteen unhappy sailors set upon Bligh in the night, and at sword-point forced him and his officers into a small rowboat, to try their luck upon the open sea. But why?
