The Hunt for a Book My Nephew Will Love

Please help me select a book as a present for my nephew. He's 19, and when I gave him a Chapters gift card for his high school graduation last spring, he used it to buy a complete set of Tom Clancy novels. Political espionage/intrigue/adventure has to be the genre I know the least about. If my nephew likes Tom Clancy's and Frederick Forsythe's works, what other books in the same genre would he enjoy?

I need a Latin translation for "In books, truth, and in truth, monsters."

I need a translation into Latin here. The phrase is: "In books, there is truth, and in truth, there are monsters." I'd like it to be as short and concise as possible, perhaps something like "In books, truth, and in truth, monsters." I'm working on a rather odd story right now, so I may have some more strange questions in the coming weeks. Thanks.

Novels with swashbuckling?

Recently I've been stricken with a definite yen to read novels involving swashbuckling and pirates, but then I realized I didn't know of any! (Except maybe for The Princess Bride.) I would very much love to read a fun, adventurous swashbuckling novel much in the same tack as the Monkey Island games and the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, something that promises to be a thrilling, guilty pleasure. Any recommendations?
