George Catlin was a fascinating figure of the nineteenth century, an artist-explorer who ventured deep into the wilds of the newly discovered Americas to paint the rapidly vanishing indigenous populations, their leaders, warriors, medicine men and scenes from their modes of life. The gifts Catlin received over the years from these remote peoples formed the basis for a vast, important collection which Catlin loaned to the world’s biggest museums, together with his portraits. Because of the stunning, life-like likenesses he created, the awed tribes dubbed Catlin Te-hee-pe-nee Washed which means The Great White Medicine.
This new 2017 edition of My Life Among the Indians is illustrated with many examples of Catlin’s artwork from this period.

A series of mysterious narcotics-related homicides suddenly caught the attention of the International Intelligence Agencies when drug mules from all over the world started to turn up dead in perplexing situations.
As they continue to die, the British MI4 is determined to know what’s going down. But so is the CIA and the Australian Intelligence. And so is the Denmark Intelligence and the French Intelligence, who have also encountered the couriers of death.
Was it just a coincidence? Or was there a sinister justification for these uncanny occurrences? MI4 Chief Colin Shooter believes there’s a sinister justification behind the unfortunate couriers. He’s a stickler, who never gives up on a conundrum and he’s absolute determined to see things through.
But he needs an agent teeming with world-class, international espionage experience; a guy who knows his stuff like the back of his hand.
And if that means collaborating with old antagonist, Special Agent Jason Clay all over again, it won’t be the end of the world.
Set in London, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Paris, Miami, Australia, Barbados, Houston, Copenhagen, Singapore, The Netherlands, South Carolina and Atlanta, it’s espionage at its very best!
It’s espionage as you’ve never seen it before!
