    Let the dice decide. The rules are down to you. The rules that stop you seducing your neighbour downstairs, that stop you hitting your boss, that stop you leaving your family and leaving the country. The rules that stop you living. The dice don't do rules; the dice do life. Luke Rhinehart is a psychiatrist, a husband and a father, his life locked down by routine and order - until he picks up the dice. The dice govern his every decision, and each throw takes him further into a world of risk, discovery and freedom. As the cult of the dice grows around him, the old order fades: chance becomes his religion, the dice his god.

    Off the coast of New England, a trawler tangles its nets on wreckage from 60 years ago – a B17 “flying fortress”, perfectly preserved and containing the final and most terrifying secret of WWII. When freelance photographer Chris Roland enters the sunken plane, he finds something that changes all he knows about the end of the war – and how desperately close it came to being the end of everything. Half a century earlier, Hitler gambled it all on a last throw of the dice.

    Born out of violence and the aspirations of its early settlers, the United States of America has become one of the world's most powerful nations. This audiobook begins in colonial America as the first Europeans arrived, lured by the promise of financial profit, driven by religious piety, and accompanied by diseases that would ravage the native populations. Woven through this richly crafted study of America's shifting social and political landscapes are the multiple perspectives of the nation's history, helping to define the United States at the dawn of a new century.
