Never stake more than you can afford to lose.

When failed magician turned cardsharp Valen Quinol is given the chance to play in the Forbearance Game – the invitation-only tournament where players gamble with secrets – he can’t resist.  Or refuse, for that matter, according to the petty gangster sponsoring his seat at the table.  Valen beats the man he was sent to play, and wins the most valuable secret ever staked in the history of the tournament.

Now Valen and his motley crew are being hunted by thieves, gangsters, spies and wizards, all with their own reasons for wanting what’s in the envelope.  It’s a game of nations where Valen doesn’t know all the rules or who all the players are, and can’t see all the moves.  But he does know if the secret falls into the wrong hands, it could plunge the whole world into war …

Pandemic Planet – How Diseases Impact Our World by Anna Claybourne

The Blurb On The Back:

Pandemic Planet

Beginning in late 2019, the COVID-19 pandemic spread rapidly around the world, causing the deaths of millions of people and leading to closed schools, empty streets and shuttered businesses.

But viruses and pandemics have been part of human history for thousands of years, from the Black Death to SARS.  PANDEMIC PLANET looks at what pandemics are, how they spread and how we deal with them.  It explores how we arm ourselves against dangerous diseases, from developing groundbreaking new vaccines to simple, individual measures such as washing your hands and wearing a face mask.  It also looks at how and what we learn from pandemics, as well as some of their surprisingly positive outcomes.

Auntie Poldi And The Fruits Of The Lord by Mario Giordano

The Blurb On The Back:

WINE AND MURDER – nothing is more likely to rouse Auntie Poldi’s love of the chase.

Still relishing the notoriety from her spectacular resolution of the Candela case, Poldi is alive to the faintest whiff of criminality.

What to others might seem a series of misfortunes – the water supply cut off, a poisoned dog – is clearly, to Poldi, an escalation: the Mafia have had her in their sights ever since she solved Valentino’s murder.

Poldi has tasted blood.  No one is above suspicion.  And trouble will surely follow …
