Empire of Lies is a sweeping thriller in the tradition of The Man in the High Castle, Fatherland, and Underground Airlines from New York Times bestselling author Raymond Khoury. “The best what-if thriller for a long, long time—makes you think, makes you sweat, and makes you choose, between what is and what might have been.”—Lee Child Istanbul, 1683: Mehmed IV, sultan of the Ottoman Empire, is preparing to lay siege to Vienna, capital of the Holy Roman Empire, when a mysterious visitor arrives in his bedroom—naked, covered in strange tattoos—to deliver a dangerous, world-changing message. Paris, 2017: Ottoman flags have been flying over the great city for three hundred years, ever since its fall—along with all of Europe—to the empire’s all-conquering army. Notre Dame has been renamed the Fatih Mosque. Public spaces are segregated by gender. And Kamal Arslan Agha, a feted officer in the sultan’s secret police, is starting to question his orders. Rumors of an impending war with the Christian Republic of America, attacks by violent extremists, and economic collapse have heightened surveillance and arrests across the empire. Tasked with surveying potential threats, Kamal has a heavy caseload—and conscience. When a mysterious stranger—naked, covered in strange tattoos—appears on the banks of the Seine, Kamal is called in to investigate. But what he discovers is a secret buried in the empire’s past, a secret the Sultan will do anything to silence. With the mysterious Z Protectorate one step behind, Kamal, together with Nisreen—a fierce human rights lawyer—is caught up in a race across the empire and time itself—a race that could change their world, or destroy it. Empire of Lies is being published as "The Ottoman Secret" in the UK. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Before the totalitarian reign of Mao Zedong and his immediate successors, never in human history had an entire nation been under such intense surveillance. The Chinese not only had to speak alike; they had to think alike. Traveling to China regularly since 1967, and spending all of 2005 and 2006 there, Guy Sorman saw it all, and in this jaw-dropping book, he documents the horrifying stories of China through the 21st century. He shows how the Party's primary concern is not improving the lives of the downtrodden; it seeks power more than it seeks social development. It expends extraordinary energy in suppressing Chinese freedoms-the media operate under suffocating censorship, and political opposition can result in expulsion or prison-even as it tries to seduce the West, which has conferred greater legitimacy on it than do the Chinese themselves.

In February 1940, the Nazis established what would become the second largest Jewish ghetto in the Polish city of Lódz. Its chosen leader: Mordechai Chaim Rumkowski, a sixty-three-year-old Jewish businessman and orphanage director, and the elusive, authoritarian power sustaining the ghetto's very existence. From one of Scandinavia's most critically acclaimed and bestselling authors, The Emperor of Lies chronicles the tale of Rumkowski's monarchical rule over a quarter of a million Jews. Driven by a titanic ambition, he sought to transform the ghetto into a productive industrial complex and strove to make it - and himself - indispensable to the Nazi regime. Drawing on the chronicles of life in the Lódz ghetto, Steve Sem-Sandberg captures the full panorama of human resilience, and questions the nature of evil. He asks the most difficult questions: Was Rumkowski a ruthless opportunist, an accessory to the Nazi regime driven by a lust for power? Or was he a pragmatic strategist who managed to save Jewish lives through his collaboration policies?

In the tradition of bestselling books like The Devil in the White City and The Man in the Rockefeller Suit, Empire of Deception combines investigative journalism and captivating storytelling to examine one of the greatest con men of the twentieth century. It was a time of unregulated madness. And nowhere was it more mad than in Chicago at the dawn of the Roaring Twenties. As Model Ts rumbled down Michigan Avenue, gang war shootings announced Al Capone’s rise to underworld domination. Bedecked partygoers thronged to the Drake Hotel’s opulent banquet rooms, corrupt politicians held court in thriving speakeasies, and the frenzy of stock market gambling was rampant. Enter a slick, smooth-talking, charismatic lawyer named Leo Koretz, who enticed hundreds of people (who should have known better) to invest as much as $30 million—upwards of $400 million today—in phantom timberland and nonexistent oil wells in Panama. It was an ingenious deceit, one that out-ponzied Charles Ponzi himself, who only a few years earlier had been arrested for a pyramid scheme. Leo had a good run—his was perhaps the longest fraud in history—and when his enterprise finally collapsed in 1923, he vanished. The Cook County state’s attorney, a man whose lust for power equaled Leo’s own lust for money, began an international manhunt that lasted almost a year. When finally apprehended, Leo was living a life of luxury in Nova Scotia under the assumed identity of a book dealer and literary critic. A salacious court hearing followed, and his mysterious death in a Chicago prison rivaled the rest of his almost too-bizarre-to-believe life. Destined to become an instant historical true crime classic, Empire of Deception is timeless and riveting.

A riveting tour through the landscape and meaning of modern conspiracy theories, exploring the causes and tenacity of this American malady, from Birthers to Pizzagate and beyond. American society has always been fertile ground for conspiracy theories, but with the election of Donald Trump, previously outlandish ideas suddenly attained legitimacy. Trump himself is a conspiracy enthusiast: from his claim that global warming is a Chinese hoax to the accusations of “fake news,” he has fanned the flames of suspicion. But it was not by the power of one man alone that these ideas gained new power. Republic of Lies looks beyond the caricatures of conspiracy theorists to explain their tenacity. Without lending the theories validity, Anna Merlan gives a nuanced, sympathetic account of the people behind them, across the political spectrum, and the circumstances that helped them take hold. The lack of a social safety net, inadequate education, bitter culture wars, and years of economic insecurity have created large groups of people who feel forgotten by their government and even besieged by it. Our contemporary conditions are a perfect petri dish for conspiracy movements: a durable, permanent, elastic climate of alienation and resentment. All the while, an army of politicians and conspiracy-peddlers has fanned the flames of suspicion to serve their own ends. Bringing together penetrating historical analysis and gripping on-the-ground reporting, Republic of Lies transforms our understanding of American paranoia.

As Obama fades into the history books, and other political forces and agendas move forward in support or in opposition to Obama's far-left and pro-Islamic political agenda, the collective memory of the American public and his supporters around the world will tend to remember the positive highlights of Obama's speeches and policies. Obama's Book of Lies is a counterbalance to the favorable image of Obama that will be portrayed by the media and his advocates. Since Obama's misrepresentations and misinformation permeated all aspects of his politics and his life, there are more examples of his disingenuousness than might be expected (15 chapters). This review will probably be regarded as the most comprehensive (almost 400 footnotes) and accurate analysis of Obama's presidency. This compendium will be enjoyed by all parties who are interested in politics and are seeking a thorough examination of Obama, his speeches and his policies, while reliving Obama's most memorable moments. James McCormack is a veteran political science writer, who has accurately predicted Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Obama's pro-Islamist leanings during his presidency, the surprise presidential electoral victory of Donald Trump (predicted in early 2016), the increasing tensions between Saudi Arabia and Qatar, Iran's increasing influence and deployment along Israel's northern border, and the use of economic countermeasures directed at China which will be necessary to rein in North Korea's nuclear program. McCormack's political insights are unmatched, and his writings have guided presidential decision making on multiple occasions. The book ends with a new set of predictions, and includes a chapter that reveals the unsettling and shocking truth about what really happened during the Benghazi fiasco, and what Obama did that evening when he became unreachable during the eight hour al-Qaeda attack on the U.S. consulate. McCormack has solidified his reputation as one of America's leading political prophets and analysts with the publication of Obama's Books of Lies.

City Council President Joseph Coolman was pisst. His eyes were filled with vinegar, bile, rage you name it! I mean hotter than Marge Tartaglione on a bad day... "I promise you on the grave of my father that I will destroy that son of bitch!" scowled Joe Coolman as he sipped his Hennessy. He was sitting in the dark of his City Council President Office firmly affixed in his big leather chair. He slowly rocked back and forth. He was like a cobra. Ready to pounce. Maybe like a panther. But not moving too quickly. This one would take a little time. "Big Blarney my ass," he spoke to himself. And a patient man he was.... NOT A HAPPY BREAKFAST Democratic Party Unity Breakfast, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Bellevue Stratford Hotel. No matter how bad the political war or election, primary or general, the eggs get scrambled together into an omelet. They meet the day after the election to make peace. To unify. To continue to solidify the dominant political party again no matter what. Philly is a Democrat town. No ifs, ands, or cannolis about it. With a 7 to 1 voter registration advantage in the fifth largest city in the country (No, Philly didn't drop to lower than 6th or 7th nationally except maybe in the National League East). In terms of voter advantage, not even Frank Rizzo could switch over that Democrat number to Republican. Not even half would do it for the Bambino these days. With a voter lead like that, Johnny Bouchee and The Democratic Party of Philadelphia County / City of Philadelphia had "fuck you votes." He didn't need shit from anybody to win a general election by 4 or 5 to one in November even if the roof fell in or Rizzo appeared in the clouds over Boathouse Row. But this past primary created a lot of bad blood. A lot. The cuts went deep, and the screwing was of blarney and booze. The good of it, for Johnny Bouchee, was The Irish retook the City politically. It had been a while. But Johnny and Bobby Eamon were sitting pretty these days. They were smirking a great deal as the sun glimmered in those Irish Eyes. But like I said, this one cut deep. There was gonna be a price to pay. This Democrat's Unity Breakfast needed a lot of salve and bandages to heal. Salve? They needed more than that! They needed morphine and transplant organs to heal this trauma. The road to recovery went through the heart of North Philadelphia. The reason for it was simple. The African American Political Hierarchy took more than a haircut as James Francis Malloy became the Democratic Nominee for Mayor of Philadelphia. In truth, they got scalped. And the blood was all over Johnny Bouchee's and Bobby Eamon's hands. It happened like this every primary election. It was lick the wounds day and make peace and give respect to the vanquished over cold eggs and scrapple. In fact, Johnny Bouchee had been doing this breakfast for decades... but not today. Today, the rift was a little too big to manage over a breakfast, and Johnny knew it. It was bloody and ugly. A bad cut above the eye. The Philly Democrats looked like Rocky Balboa's face.
