Conspiracy Of One from the Author: Peter Rand. Officers from the U.S. Embassy, Scotland Yard, and MI5 broke into the bedroom of suave young American code clerk Tyler Kent. They found him standing beside his unmade bed, wearing a pair of striped pajama bottoms. His mistress, Irene Danischewsky, was wearing the matching top—and nothing else. Along with keys to the Embassy code room, the men also found almost 2,000 documents that Kent had smuggled out, including top-secret cables that he had encoded and transmitted from Churchill to Roosevelt seeking American help for besieged Britain. Kent planned to give those cables to Roosevelt’s isolationist enemies in Congress. Also among the documents lay an incriminating volume, the infamous Red Book, containing the names of high profile Nazi sympathizers that Churchill wanted behind barbed wire. American ambassador Joseph Kennedy waived Kent’s diplomatic immunity and turned him over to the British, who imprisoned him until his secret trial. It was a long way for Kent to fall. A Princeton dropout, he had used his brilliant language skills and privileged position to get ahead. Looking down his nose at all around him, he made a very bad impression on everyone he met. But his father’s friends—anti-Roosevelt, anti–New Deal, and anti-Semitic—helped maintain his career. His good looks didn’t hurt, either. Through his father’s connections, he had gone to Moscow with the first American ambassador to the Soviet Union. Suspecting him of spying for the Russians, officials transferred him to London, where he met Danischewsky, the Russian wife of a British merchant. A black sheep with diplomatic privilege, Tyler Kent stood at the crossroads of history: Stalin’s purges, the rise of Hitler, and the Phony War. Peter Rand arrestingly weaves together Kent’s star-crossed love affair, imprisonment, and trial into a rich tapestry that conveys a fresh vision of the tumultuous era.

Conspiracy Of The Insignificant from the Author: Patrick Regan. Patrick Regan grew up in a nice, quiet, middle-class Christian family. So he got something of a culture shock when he spent two weeks doing a mission in London at the age of 16. Having met people from violent backgrounds and living in cardboard boxes with no food, no money and no security, Patrick prayed a life-changing prayer: that he would see things the way God sees them. Soon Patrick was back in London working in schools in some of the most socially deprived areas, Patrick and his growing team slowly but surely earned the right to share the gospel. When the tide of violence began to rise, Patrick was there to provide the Christian presence so desperately needed. This book tells the story of a journey that took Patrick everywhere from the roughest estates in London to Jamaica's Trenchtown and to poverty stricken villages in Ghana. Through it all he learnt that bringing the kingdom of God to a place can mean anything from helping a child to read to negotiating between gang leaders.

A Conspiracy Of Cells from the Author: Michael Gold. A Conspiracy of Cells presents the first full account of one of medical science's more bizarre and costly mistakes. On October 4, 1951, a young black woman named Henrietta Lacks died of cervical cancer. That is, most of Henrietta Lacks died. In a laboratory dish at the Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore, a few cells taken from her fatal tumor continued to live--to thrive, in fact. For reasons unknown, her cells, code-named "HeLa," grew more vigorously than any other cells in culture at the time. Long-time science reporter Michael Gold describes in graphic detail how the errant HeLa cells spread, contaminating and overwhelming other cell cultures, sabotaging research projects, and eluding detection until they had managed to infiltrate scientific laboratories worldwide. He tracks the efforts of geneticist Walter Nelson-Rees to alert a sceptical scientific community to the rampant HeLa contamination. And he reconstructs Nelson-Rees's crusade to expose the embarrassing mistakes and bogus conclusions of researchers who unknowingly abetted HeLa's spread.
