An 80 year old conspiracy. A clash of spies, and the secret they buried. William Stephenson is an expert in mass media persuasion and propaganda. He watched the rise of Hitler on a mountain of lies, but Stephenson also believes that the Nazis can be undone by the same power that created them; propaganda. There is just one problem. All foreign broadcasts are illegal in Germany. At best Stephenson will have a day before the Nazi soldiers storm his radio station. It took Hitler over a decade to change the beliefs of the people; one day is not enough. Then something incredible happens. In less than one hour, The War of the Worlds broadcast convinces millions of Americans that aliens exist, and the world is coming to an end. Now, Stephenson races against the Nazis to discover the secrets of the Sky Fall before the Third Reich uses them to gather more allies for the coming war. Some say the War of the Worlds scare never happened, others promised it would never happen again. Dive deep in the history and science propaganda of persuasion as this conspiracy unfolds. Take a Look-Inside and discover what makes a nation believe a lie.

Heris Serrano thought her life was over when a treacherous superior officer forced her to resign from the Regular Space Service - the only life she had ever known, or ever wanted. But captaining a rich old lady's interstellar yacht has proved more exciting - and fulfilling - than she could ever have imagined. Having rescued some former Fleet friends and colleagues betrayed by the same officer who forced her resignation, and foiled a plot to poison the heir to the throne, Heris has at last been offered a chance for vindication and reinstatement in her beloved Fleet - and reconciliation with the family she thought had abandoned her. But it means standing alone against the military might of the Benignity, an interstellar criminal cartel more colloquially known as the Compassionate Hand. With only a few small ships and the space yacht Sweet Delight she must stop an invading fleet dead in its tracks . . .
