Set in the violent and power-hungry Los Angeles drug underworld of 1985, The Arbiters is a story of love at first sight, rebirth, and spiritual awakening, inspired by Henryk Sienkiewicz’s 1895 tome, Quo Vadis?
Marcus, an enforcer in Los Angeles’ largest drug cartel, is gravely wounded while on cartel business in Colombia. While recuperating back in LA, Marcus falls in love with Sabrina, the adopted daughter of ex-cartel member, Max Brutus. When Sabrina doesn’t reciprocate Marcus’ overbearing exultations of love, he enlists the guidance of his seemingly shrewd Uncle Sein, the cartel’s second-in-command, to assist him in navigating his feelings. Sein, who also suffers from his own emotional deficiencies, is eager to help his nephew, and concocts a plan to bring Marcus and Sabrina together.
With one hasty decision, Sein ignites a series of events that results in colossal misunderstandings, unimaginable jealousy, and deadly consequences. As Marcus and Sein are forced to confront the brutal aftermath, each man embarks upon a personal, spiritual journey. Along the way, they both discover the love that exists in their hearts, and perhaps, how to make peace with their inner demons.
This carefully crafted ebook: “The Prime Minister (Unabridged)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.The Prime Minister is the fifth of the “Palliser” series of novels. When neither the Whigs nor the Tories are able to form a government on their own, a fragile compromise coalition government is formed, with Plantagenet Palliser, the wealthy and hard-working Duke of Omnium, installed as Prime Minister. The Duchess, formerly Lady Glencora Palliser, attempts to support her husband by hosting lavish parties at Gatherum Castle in Barsetshire, a family residence barely used until now. Palliser, initially unsure that he is fit to lead, then grows to enjoy the high office and finally becomes increasingly distressed when his government proves to be too weak and divided to accomplish anything. His own inflexible nature does not help…Anthony Trollope (1815 – 1882) was one of the most successful, prolific and respected English novelists of the Victorian era. Some of his best-loved works, collectively known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire, revolve around the imaginary county of Barsetshire. He also wrote perceptive novels on political, social, and gender issues, and on other topical matters. Trollope’s literary reputation dipped somewhat during the last years of his life, but he regained the esteem of critics by the mid-twentieth century.
