Tells the story of being mistaken for a CIA agent. After getting mistaken for a rogue CIA agent, he got setup, and nearly killed but escaped the spy and police dragnet.

When he turned down double the last offer, he got sent home in California by the U.S. Embassy. Another UBS employee Christopher Meilli exposed theft of Holocaust survivors money and deposit records. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Mr. Meilli was asked about moneylaundering in the belief he was me and that I had flown from Tokyo to Zurich and infiltrated UBS security to get the goods on them.

Through a Land of Promise
Michael Terry F.R.G.S., F.R.A.I., F.R.C.I. was the last major explorer of the Australian interior. In the 1920s and 1930s, Terry undertook no less than fourteen expeditions through central and northern Australia by truck and later by camel. Michael Terry's expeditions opened up much of the previously untraversed country in Australia's "dead heart" and "top end." It is for this reason that the books describing his various expeditions are much sought-after by modern Australian outback 4WD travellers. Through a Land of Promise describes in terrific detail the 1925 expedition from Darwin in the Northern Territory to Broome in Western Australia in Terry's typical Boys Own style. Out of print for decades, this new edition of Through a Land of Promise is an exact replica in paperback of the original 1927 edition. The page count, tables of contents, illustrations, appendices and index are exactly as they appeared in that first edition.

Writing in Form: Poetry and Other Stuff

release date: Dec 01, 2009
Writing in Form: Poetry and Other Stuff
In Writing in Form, Michael Terry offers a collection of uniquely independent verse that is never afraid to challenge the reader spiritually and intellectually. In fact, his brilliant command of word and language stimulates a kind of existential reflection that is both amusing and disturbing at the same time. The author is incredibly versatile: A Tornado Hit the Neighboring Town and A Wolf and Me expand on his strong narrative capacities to capture moving tales, always testing the edges of story and myth. Insights into human behavior and man's capacities for love and hate are beautifully explored in A Leg from Shankill, Emmett Till, and You Must Suffer and Die, while Dresden and Blood Lines represent uniquely moving insights into historical self-awareness. Terry's poetry can be smoothly traditional or offbeat, often representing approaches to metaphysical exposition that can use both humor and pain like bludgeons. Whether through Terry's delightful tongue-in-cheek irony or his profoundly moving analyses of the human condition, you will be educated, moved and entertained by the poetry of this bright new star.
