Winner of the NESTOR LUJÁN HISTORICAL NOVEL PRIZE."I was nervous about this book. Finding a good novel in translation from the tiny state of Andorra, nestling in the Pyrenees between Spain and France, was always going to be tricky... I was in for a pleasant surprise... Salvadó has certainly done his homework: the book is painstakingly researched... By and large, the level of detail and historical knowledge is well-handled... The text itself felt professional and slick... this is a highly readable light novel... powerful flashes of insight into human greed, pride and ambition..." (ANN MORGAN, Andorra: Buried treasure, A Year of Reading the Word,, London, february 22, 2012)This is the history of the time of Pharaoh Snefru and Queen Hetepheres, the parents of Cheops, who built the largest and most impressive pyramid of all. It is also the story of Sedum, a slave who became Cheops' teacher, the high priest Ramosi, and how the first pyramid came to be built.Sebekhotep, the great wise man of that time, said, "Everything is written in the stars. Most of us live our lives unaware of it. Some can read the stars and see their destiny. But very few people learn to write in the stars and change their destiny."Ramosi and Sedum learned to write in them and tried to change their destinies, but fortune treated them very differently. This is a tale of the confrontation between two men's intelligence: one fighting for power, the other struggling for freedom. Other critics' opinions:“It is a long time since a prize was so justly awarded. THE TEACHER OF CHEOPS deserves every honour... An intrigue that develops at a good pace without causing anxiety... A restrained and inspired piece of writing; an outstanding, intelligent and well-constructed novel.” (RAMÓN VENTURA, El Periódico)“Salvadó develops the mystery with great skill in his novel.” (JACINTO ANTÓN, El País)“Salvadó presents a story about power and knowledge through a fast-paced plot combining intrigue, love, mystery, murder and adventure.” (ROSA Mª PIÑOL, La Vanguardia)“Albert Salvadó displays seasoned writing skill in this novel... A very well-organised plot... A straightforward, effective style that is a pleasure to read... He achieves accuracy in his writing.” (IGNASI ARAGAY, Avui)

Del rey Jaime I se puede hablar como el soberano que dio un gran impulso a la Corona de Aragón. Antes había solamente una unión dinástica del reino de Aragón con los contados catalanes, el de Barcelona sobre todo. Más tarde, las conquistas de las islas –especialmente Mallorca— y de Valencia, transformada en un reino propio, facilitaron la creación de aquella corona tan compleja. En 2008 celebramos el octavo centenario del nacimiento, en 1208, del Rey Conquistador en Montpellier. Este libro, de un historiador que ya trabaja sobre Jaime I desde 1984, no se puede considerar cualquier biografía o unos simples comentarios de la crónica del rei, es decir, del Llibre des feits. Con una síntesis de ágil prosa, Ernest Belenguer presenta la historia del rey y de su reinado en todas sus vertientes, con un libro que no cansa al lector, un libro riguroso, completo y gratificante en su lectura. Jaime I y su reinado no es una novela del pasado, afortunadamente es un libro de historia, en el cual el autor ha conseguido una narración tan estimulante como verdadera, sin traicionar, inventar o manipular los hechos. El texto se acompaña de cinco planos y treinta-y-cuatro imágenes en color sobre la vida de Jaime I.

In the first biography in English of the great Argentinian tango singer Carlos Gardel (1890-1935), Collier traces his rise from very modest beginnings to become the first genuine “superstar” of twentieth-century Latin America. In his late teens, Gardel won local fame in the barrios of Buenos Aires singing in cafes and political clubs. By the 1920s, after he switched to tango singing, the songs he wrote and sang enjoyed instant popularity and have become classics of the genre. He began making movies in the 1930s, quickly establishing himself as the most popular star of the Spanish-language cinema, and at the time of his death Paramount was planning to launch his Hollywood career. Collier's biography focuses on Gardel's artistic career and achievements but also sets his life story within the context of the tango tradition, of early twentieth-century Argentina, and of the history of popular entertainment.

She is Nefertiti—beautiful and revered. With her husband, Akhenaten, she rules over Egypt, the most affluent, formidable, sophisticated empire in the ancient world. But an epic power struggle is afoot, brought on by the royal couple's inauguration of an enlightened new religion and the construction of a magnificent new capital. The priests are stunned by the abrupt forfeiture of their traditional wealth and influence; the people resent the loss of their gods—and the army is enraged by the growing turbulence around them. Then, just days before the festival that will celebrate the new capital, Nefertiti vanishes. Rahotep, the youngest chief detective in the Thebes division, has earned a reputation for his unorthodox yet effective methods. Entrusted by great Akhenaten himself with a most secret investigation, Rahotep has but ten days to find the missing Queen. If he succeeds, he will bask in the warmth of Akhenaten's favor. But if Rahotep fails, he and his entire family will die.
