Deception in War


Vehicle Natural environment Font Book Landscape




Deception has traditionally been seen as the ruse de guerre of low or cunning types, rather than a legitimate military tactic. This book challenges that view.

Jon Latimer draws on examples from land, sea and air to show how simple some tricks have been, but also how technology has increased the range of what is possible, using, for instance, bogus radio traffic, virtual images, and even scents. After all, there is something particularly satisfying about not only beating an opponent but doing so through guile.

Deception in War is the definitive account of the importance of deception in warfare from the Trojan Horse to the present day.

Dog Vertebrate Dog breed Carnivore Font




Rescue dog faces the reality of his unusual new life.

When two glossy Sydney metro couples rescue an ordinary Aussie mutt from the Dog Pound, he wonders why... especially when they change his name to Elliott! But he soon realizes that Jamie, the alpha-male of one of the couples, has plans for him... big plans! It’s a humorous Australian rescue dog’s tell-all tale about how he becomes a celebrity and wins their love.

Previously a one-man companion pooch, Elliott soon finds he's become a time share dog, shared between the two couples. But because he can read auras and understand every word of human talk, not just body language, Elliott learns fast. He discovers the reason he's here is because ad man Jamie wanted an ordinary "everydog" for his TV commercial for Biffo ChunkY-Yums dog food, which, to his surprise, also stars Hedy, a glamorous Afghan Hound. If he can become a TV dog star, Elliott need never fear being sent back to the Dog Pound. So with dogged determination, the feisty dog even trains himself to wink, with humorous results. But that’s not all, while trying to win the love of his new human pack, Elliott falls in love with Alison, the stunning Airedale Terrier, and befriends the dogs next door, Spike, a Tibetan Mastiff, and Mitzi, a snooty Standard Poodle.

Man of Wax (Man of Wax Trilogy Book 1)


World Human Poster Sleeve Font




From USA Today bestselling author Robert Swartwood comes the exciting first book in the Man of Wax Trilogy ...

Ben Anderson goes to bed Sunday night, lying next to his wife in the comfort and safety of their Pennsylvania family home, to wake up the next day in a rundown motel in California — alone.

He doesn't know how he got there, he doesn't know where his family is, and written in dried blood on the bathroom door are the words LET THE GAME BEGIN.

Soon Ben is contacted by Simon. Simon knows all there is to know about Ben, more than he cares to remember himself. If Ben wants to save himself and his family, he will have to do everything Simon says.

As the game begins — with stakes much higher than either man can imagine — no one knows where it will lead or how it will end.

Only one thing is for certain: this time the game will change everything.

Burying Ben (Dot Meyerhoff Mystery Series Book 1)


Window Fixture Door Font Line




A COP’S DEAD; SHE WAS HIS SHRINK.
GUESS WHO EVERYONE’S BLAMING?
"Riveting, compelling and authentic! Ellen Kirschman's been-there done-that experience makes this a real standout." —Hank Phillippi Ryan, Agatha, Anthony, and Mary Higgins Clark award winner

A floundering, sensitive young rookie cop steps into her office. She tries to help him, but after a few sessions he commits suicide.

Not a good look for a psychologist with a new job.

Needless to say, Dr. Dot Meyerhoff, newly minted police psychologist, is not only sad, she’s mortified. She’s already discovered counseling cops isn’t easy — that they’re uncommunicative men contemptuous of therapy.

But she didn’t expect to fail quite this badly.

Freshly divorced and in need of cash, she took the job even though she wasn’t quite prepared for it — especially for the irascible police chief, and the lack of respect throughout the department. Now she’s in danger of losing both the job and her license.

Because when a client commits suicide, people tend to blame the therapist. Including Dot herself. She’s beating herself up because she didn’t prevent it. But could she have?

She’s desperate to find out, and her quest takes her all over the small California town in which she finds herself. Luckily for the reader, sordid secrets spill out of closets in every neighborhood she visits.

The Lou Fleener Private Eye Series: Books 4-6 (Lou Fleener Mysteries Book 8)


Building Publication Font Skyscraper Tower block




LOU FLEENER, LOW CLASS P.I., HAS A NEW DISGUISE:
LOU FLEENER, CLASSY DETECTIVE

P.I. Lou Fleener is blessed with a natural disguise: he’s kind of short, slightly pudgy, a little nondescript, and always underestimated – the bad guys just don’t see him coming. So they’re always surprised to find themselves facing the toughest street fighter in Chicago. There is simply not anybody he can’t beat – even a bar full of anybodies.

Cozy readers will adore the romance, the snappy jokes, and Lou’s spitfire wife Cassidy. There’s also enough fast-moving action for hard-boiled fans, and a quirky brand of noir that will appeal to classicists looking for the next Raymond Chandler.

The Classy Detective Agency
It’s 1960 in glamorous Chicago, and Lou and his wife Cassidy are broke. They devise a scheme to advertise themselves as sophisticated private eyes catering to the city’s elite, but whip-smart as they are, they aren’t prepared for the stealthy criminals hiding among Chicago’s rich and famous.

Set up to take the fall for an art heist, Cassidy's arrested and Lou's branded a cop killer and hunted throughout the city. With his best friend and acknowledged brains of the operation, Dion “Monk” Monkton, still in California, they're on their own. Lou's Plan B might not be as elegant as Monk's, but it's wildly entertaining and true to his guiding principle: Always do the unexpected.

Ticket to Heaven
Chicago’s sleaziest businessman is trying to pay off his sins. The cruel, strange real estate tycoon Elwood Tymms—known as “Terrible Tymms”—is dying and before he goes, he’s trying to throw all his money to charitable causes in an off-the-wall effort to buy his way into heaven. But Tymms has a problem: he’s got so many enemies he might end up assassinated before he can finish giving away his cash—and in his mind that means he’d end up in hell. Cassidy and Lou agree to act as his security detail and Tymms ends up taking shelter in their apartment. Big surprise...he’s not the best roommate.

Filthy Rich
Down-and-out comedian “Filthy" Rich wasn’t always living on the edge, telling viciously dirty jokes in the seediest possible strip clubs. He was once famous for a clean routine, until his estranged wife ran off with Rich’s best jokes. Rich hires Lou to find the missing jokes—and the wayward wife, leading Lou down a perilous rabbit hole of deceit, lies, and frame ups.

Sweden, Japan, and the Long Second World War: 1931-1945


Green Nature Natural environment Organism World




Lottaz and Ottosson explore the intricate relationship between neutral Sweden and Imperial Japan during the latter’s 15 years of warfare in Asia and in the Pacific. While Sweden’s relationship with European Axis powers took place under the premise of existential security concerns, the case of Japan was altogether different. Japan never was a threat to Sweden, militarily or economically. Nevertheless, Stockholm maintained a close relationship with Tokyo until Japan’s surrender in 1945. This book explores the reasons for that and therefore provides a study on the rationale and the value of neutrality in the Long Second World War.


Sweden, Japan, and the Long Second World War is a valuable resource for scholars of the Second World War and of the history of neutrality.
