After being defeated in the 1914-18 War and the shame of the "Treaty of Versailles" in June 1921, a gruppe of powerful Companies and Individuals decided that never again should their Country be the subject of such shame and ruin, she would rule Europe by political power not the destructive power that was used in the past, the gruppe realized that, despite whatever allies it had, Germany could not win a war to dominate Europe, but to survive it must dominate and be pre-eminent in Europe.They began to float the idea of a politically unified Europe. The aim was for a specifically Christian, and by implication Roman Catholic, Europe.Their strategy concluded that Germany was not now, nor would it ever be, strong enough to go to war again, no matter what ally's it had, it needed Lebensraum and a larger market for its "industrial" goods. The "strategy" was to unite Europe under a central ruling government, a United States of Europe that would dictate the "rules" under which it would function to this end a plan was evolved by several gruppes in many Countries over several years to form a central government that was dominated by Germany. This "strategy" was developed in 1925 by a gruppe of people who saw the constituent parts of Europe, its Countries, as a force for good and when it was united, with one Country dominating one industry, it would be unstoppable.

Do we see the real personality of people or is there more luring behind the surface? Sometimes the ones we trust the most might be playing a role contrary to their character. In his timeless fables, Aesop whispers from the past knowledge which we think we know, but very often forget. Aesop's fables feature animals, legendary creatures, plants, inanimate objects, or forces of nature that speak, solve problems, and generally have human characteristics. All the stories story lead to a particular moral lesson. Aesop (620–564 BCE) was a storyteller that was believed to have lived in Ancient Greece. He is celebrated for a number of fables now collectively known as Aesop's Fables. In the few scattered sources about his life, Aesop was described as a slave who by his cleverness acquires freedom and becomes an adviser to kings and city-states. Although Aesop's existence remains unclear, numerous tales credited to him were gathered across the centuries and in many languages in a storytelling tradition that continues to this day.

Exotic pet-sitter Belinda Blake is nervous about her new job at the White Pine Wolf Preserve, but it turns out that the care and feeding of wild carnivores may be the least dangerous part of the gig . . . Pet-sitter Belinda Blake is no stranger to dealing with wild animals, but she’s wary when the owner of the Greenwich, Connecticut, preserve asks her to help out with her “fluffy darlings.” Her caution seems justified on her very first day, when she discovers a tour guide—dead, bloodied, and surrounded by wolves in the enclosure. Was it death by predator or something more sinister? The body count rises, but something’s not adding up. As she gets to know the rescued wolves and wolf-dog hybrids better, Belinda realizes that her human colleagues are not above suspicion. With help from her own “pack”—her pregnant sister, Red the chauffeur/bodyguard, and hunky farmer Jonas—Belinda is hot on the killer’s tail, but if she doesn’t find him soon, he’ll do more than muzzle her to keep the truth from escaping. “With a well-paced plot, engaging characters, and exotic animals, Gilbert’s new series featuring pet sitter Belinda Blake will tick all the right boxes for cozy mystery fans.” —Ellery Adams, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

On the surface, this is an idyllic paradise; however, beneath that illusion it is something else entirely.

Barbara Unkovi? is a keen and perceptive observer of the human condition, as her previous award-winning books, including, Moon Walking and Weeds in The Garden of Eden have revealed. A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing could very well have been called 'Prickles amongst the Roses' as Barbara observations here surely suggest. Shortly after the new millennium began, Barbara and her husband Denis underwent the most dramatic sea-change possible. The couple left Australia's Sunshine Coast, their very comfortable lifestyle, and their flourishing coffee importing and roasting business for an entirely different life in a far-off corner of the world. Following Barbara's desire to examine her Croatian heritage in depth, they moved to her grandfather's birthplace, the tiny picturesque village of Ra?i?e on the small island of Korcula off the coast of Croatia. The idyllic appearance of this most beautiful seaside village can be likened to a wonderful rose, an absolutely stunning flower set against the backdrop of the shimmering blue Adriatic. However, this rose has thorns, many, many sharp, vicious thorns to impale the unwary. The rawness of the war has left deep scars in the Croatian psyche. The entrenched communist mindset, extreme nepotism, out of control officialdom and just plain deeply ingrained distrust including fear of foreigners, even fellow Croats from outside the village itself, taints the timeless beauty of this place that Barbara and Denis so wanted to call home. After seven years, the couple no longer live in Ra?i?e, and this book, A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing may explain in part why they chose to move on, and perhaps it also offers the reader a cautionary tale of what to expect in any so-called paradise. It's not all doom and gloom however, there is fun, love, great eccentricity to be found here and Barbara, who is an excellent restaurant-trained chef has included some of her favourite recipes from Croatia and her Adriatic and Mediterranean neighbours. A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing is a funny, sometimes disturbing but very entertaining read - yet another excellent slice of the life from Barbara Unkovi?, whose stature as a writer and keen observer of our many very human foibles, continues to grow with each and every book.
