    There's an anarchist plot and a ticking bomb... the stakes are higher than ever for DI Edgar Stephens and magician Max Mephisto in the latest book in Elly Griffiths' hit series.

    Elizabeth II's coronation is looming, but the murder of wartime commander, Colonel Cartwright, spoils the happy mood for DI Edgar Stephens and magician Max Mephisto. A playbill featuring another deceased comrade is found in Colonel Cartwright's possession, and a playing card, the ace of hearts: the blood card...
    With a wartime connection and a suggestion of magic, the duo make it their mission to solve this case. However, this means Edgar's investigation into the death of a Brighton fortune-teller is put on hold and Max is busy rehearsing for his television debut. Therefore, it's Edgar who heads to New York to track down a small-town mesmerist who may provide the key to the whole situation.

    Sergeant Emma Holmes is also on the case and she finds a clue buried in the files of the Zabini case. This sparks off another issue - there's a group hell-bent on providing an explosive finale to Coronation Day. Will our heroes be able to foil the plot?

    A signed edition of Robert Harris' The Dictator.

    There was a time when Cicero held Caesar's life in the palm of his hand. But now Caesar is the dominant figure and Cicero's life is in ruins. Exiled, separated from his wife and children, his possessions confiscated, his life constantly in danger, Cicero is tormented by the knowledge that he has sacrificed power for the sake of his principles.

    His comeback requires wit, skill and courage - and for a brief and glorious period, the legendary orator is once more the supreme senator in Rome. But politics is never static and no statesman, however cunning, can safeguard against the ambition and corruption of others.

    Riveting and tumultuous, Dictator encompasses some of the most epic events in human history yet is also an intimate portrait of a brilliant, flawed, frequently fearful yet ultimately brave man - a hero for his time and for ours. This is an unforgettable tour de force from a master storyteller.
