MEDITATIONS (Medieval Greek: Τὰ εἰς ἑαυτόν Ta eis heauton, literally “to himself”) is a series of personal writings by Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor from 161 to 180 AD, recording his private notes to himself and ideas on Stoic philosophy.

Marcus Aurelius wrote the 12 books of the Meditations in Koine Greek as a source for his own guidance and self-improvement. It is possible that large portions of the work were written at Sirmium, where he spent much time planning military campaigns from 170 to 180. Some of it was written while he was positioned at Aquincum on campaign in Pannonia, because internal notes tell us that the first book was written when he was campaigning against the Quadi on the river Granova (modern-day Hron) and the second book was written at Carnuntum.

It is unlikely that Marcus Aurelius ever intended the writings to be published and the work has no official title, so “Meditations” is one of several titles commonly assigned to the collection. These writings take the form of quotations varying in length from one sentence to long paragraphs.

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!
