International bestseller! James Bond has nothing on Dusko Popov. a double agent for the Abwehr, MI5 and MI6, and the FBI during World War II, Popov seduced numerous women, spoke five languages, and was a crack shot, all while maintaining his cover as a Yugoslavian diplomat… On a cool August evening in 1941, a Serbian playboy created a stir at Casino Estoril in Portugal by throwing down an outrageously large baccarat bet to humiliate his opponent. The Serbian was a British double agent, and the money―which he had just stolen from the Germans―belonged to the British. From the sideline, watching with intent interest was none other than Ian Fleming… The Serbian was Dusko Popov. As a youngster, he was expelled from his London prep school. Years later he would be arrested and banished from Germany for making derogatory statements about the Third Reich. When World War II ensued, the playboy became a spy, eventually serving three dangerous masters: the Abwehr, MI5 and MI6, and the FBI. On August 10, 1941, the Germans sent Popov to the United States to construct a spy network and gather information on Pearl Harbor. The FBI ignored his German questionnaire, but J. Edgar Hoover succeeded in blowing his cover. While MI5 desperately needed Popov to deceive the Abwehr about the D-Day invasion, they assured him that a return to the German Secret Service Headquarters in Lisbon would result in torture and execution. He went anyway... Into the Lion’s Mouth is a globe-trotting account of a man’s entanglement with espionage, murder, assassins, and lovers―including enemy spies and a Hollywood starlet. It is a story of subterfuge and seduction, patriotism, and cold-blooded courage. It is the story of Dusko Popov―the inspiration for James Bond. INCLUDES PHOTOGRAPHS

In this eloquent novel, an Italian/Canadian woman named Bianca tells the story of her beloved cousin, Marco, whose life is disintegrating along with his city--Venice, Italy. As she tries to make sense of her cousin's breakdown, Bianca recounts her own history and reflects on her immigrant and Canadian experiences, coming to terms with her dual cultures. The novel is multifaceted as a thriller, study of social mores in Italy and Canada, portrait of Venice, and self-reflexive account.
B>In this book of short stories I have compiled some of my writing and ideas on a life past and present. Ever wonder what would happen if it started snowing and never stopped...never ever stopped? How would we exist? Where would we live? Or what about the young soldiers in the Great War who were shot at dawn after a court martial. Have you ever considered the feelings of those who pulled the trigger? Perhaps you are in a sailing boat wondering how a Vikinglong ship has come to be just off the starboard bow. Is it daydream? Well, is it? Or have you noticed police officers on duty, perhaps on television? Ever wondered what they fear? What they carry forever locked inside? Their ghosts? In life there is presumption that we know and understand how others think, feel and fear. Always trying to make the best of circumstances we find ourselves in. I call this the human condition. No matter what that condition, I have found the human spirit always shines through. You just need to know where to look .Life is for living. Stories are for reading. Enjoy.
'The most comprehensive narrative of intelligence compiled ... unrivalled' Max Hastings, Sunday Times 'Captivating, insightful and masterly' Edward Lucas, The Times The history of espionage is far older than any of today's intelligence agencies, yet the long history of intelligence operations has been largely forgotten. The first mention of espionage in world literature is in the Book of Exodus.'God sent out spies into the land of Canaan'. From there, Christopher Andrew traces the shift in the ancient world from divination to what we would recognize as attempts to gather real intelligence in the conduct of military operations, and considers how far ahead of the West - at that time - China and India were. He charts the development of intelligence and security operations and capacity through, amongst others, Renaissance Venice, Elizabethan England, Revolutionary America, Napoleonic France, right up to sophisticated modern activities of which he is the world's best-informed interpreter. What difference have security and intelligence operations made to course of history? Why have they so often forgotten by later practitioners? This fascinating book provides the answers.

Provides citations and context for each major word used in the Bible
Have you ever asked yourself, What I am doing here? What is my purpose in life? What is my plan? I am not talking about your career plan or your retirement plan. Moses, Mary, David, and Daniel in the Bible were ordinary people who were thrust into extreme adversities. Each had no idea what was in store for them. Each had their moments of doubt, discouragement, and despair. Their thoughts of how am I going to get through this? You are no different. Your personal blueprint is already designed. Each of you is a complex, high-performance machine with a great purpose to fulfill. I had no idea of these concepts or what my purpose was. I now know my purpose is to share my story with others and show how God is connected to each of us, every second. My wife and I are ordinary people. This is my full disclosure, my true story of how we overcame adversities that rocked us to the core of our human existence. Every obstacle was a ferocious lion attacking. Through dreams and visions I learned that Divine intervention was directing us through every aspect of our lives. My story and testimony are true. This reality-based storm took me to rock bottom. The experiences rebuilt me into the super-charged person that I am today. We overcame a mountain of debt We battled a recession that impacted three businesses We faced tax evasion and paid back hundreds of thousands to the IRS We survived a serious illness that took me to the threshold of my human demise We stopped the plague of generational abuse, hate, control and negativity You will meet the Lions. They are real. You have lions--money, health, stress, relationships, addiction, fear, acceptance, depression, anxiety. Every lion is ferocious. Learn how every lion was tamed and every mouth shut. The odds of us overcoming each adversity were a million to one. We were graced by miracles from God. You can overcome your lions. This story is confirmation that within a millisecond, anything is possible with Gods favor and grace.
