Publisher's Summary

In 17th century Venice exists a mysterious establishment known only as the Gameshouse.
There, fortunes are made and fortunes are broken over games of chess, backgammon, and every other game under the sun.
But those whom fortune favours may be invited to compete in the higher league...a league where the games played are of politics and empires, of economics and kings. 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....

Loved it

I'm a big Claire North fan and this series isn't letting me down. I'm about halfway through the third novella and my only complaint is this is the end of it. Peter Kenny is great too!

Great Novella

Great series with an interesting new concept. The characters are strong and the narration is fantastic. I quickly went through all three in the series. Worth the credit.
