There, fortunes are made and fortunes are broken over games of chess, backgammon and every other game under the sun.

It is a league where Capture the Castle involves real castles, where hide-and-seek takes place on a scale as big as the British Isles. Not everyone proves worthy of competing in the higher league. But one woman who is about to play may just exceed everyone's expectations.Though she must always remember: the higher the stakes, the more deadly the rules....

But a select few who are picked to compete in the higher league know that some games are played for higher stakes - those of politics and empires, of economics and kings...And now, the ultimate player is about to step forward.

I have listened to many audiobooks in the last few years, but must say this is truly outstanding,. Only bad eyesight and laziness keeps me from gushing on at length in praise of this audiobook. The intelligence, breath, performance… truly fascinating and enthralling piece of work.Whether one enjoys action romance philosophy psychology history or politics, this book will satisfy, thrill and enlighten. Cannot heap enough praise .
