Book excerpt: Bored with retirement, an ex-spy embarks on a dangerous game, in this Edgar Award winner from a crime writer who is “one of the best” (The New York Times). Miles Kendig is one of the CIA’s top deep-cover agents, until an injury ruins him for active duty. Rather than take a desk job, he retires. But the tawdry thrills of civilian life—gambling, drinking, sex—offer none of the pleasures of the intelligence game. Even a Russian agent’s offer to go to work against his old employers seems dull. Without the thrill of unpredictable conflict, Kendig skulks through Paris like the walking dead. To revive himself, he begins writing a tell-all memoir, divulging every secret he accumulated in his long career. Neither CIA nor KGB can afford to have it in print, and so he challenges them both: Until they catch him, a chapter will go to the publisher every week. Kendig’s life is fun again, with survival on the line.

Book excerpt: An “ingenious” science-fiction fantasy about a man who body swaps, and the lengths he must go to get his life back, from a New York Times–bestselling author (Kirkus Reviews). For a fee, Eduard Swan will swap bodies with people in distress—those facing surgeries, emotional crises, moments of unpleasantness, or discomfort they can’t or would rather not deal with. Eduard will experience the suffering for them. It’s a lucrative business, and in a society in which you can hopscotch from body to body, there is no end of clients seeking to avoid pain. But someone doesn’t want to play by the rules. Someone doesn’t want to return Eduard’s body. And, unfortunately for Eduard, that someone is one of the world’s most powerful men. Now Eduard has no choice but to steal back his life. He has the perfect alibi, or so he thinks. On the run with the only friends he can trust—Eduard struggles to find the meaning of identity in a culture in which appearances mean everything—and nothing. Where everything is relative . . . even murder. “Hopscotch is cracking good—swift, sure storytelling, with more plot twists than a snake and twice the bite.” —Gregory Benford, author of Eater “Kevin J. Anderson is in top form in Hopscotch, a rousing tale that charges hard into territory where nobody has gone before. This one may be the most original book of the year.” —Jack McDevitt, author of Infinity Beach

Book Let s Play Hopscotch

Download or read book Let s Play Hopscotch written by Ellie Levinson and published by Tate Publishing. This book was released on 2013-03 with total page 424 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the 1950s, I lived under apartheid in South Africa, with a Catholic, Lebanese mother and an English father. I was one of six. I grew up playing games like hopscotch, totally oblivious to the apartheid regime. Fast forward to 1994, and I'm forty-one years old and waiting in a long queue for hours to vote for Nelson Mandela. In her lighthearted and adventurous memoir, Ellie Levinson takes readers to the small, gold-mining town of Welkom, South Africa, where she and her five siblings attend school and give up sweets for forty days every Lent, as if queuing for the loo every morning isn't enough to atone for their sins! When Ellie grows up and leaves her hometown of Welkom, she becomes a teacher, falls in love with an adopted Jewish medical student, Ivan, and marries him under a chuppah. In their adventures together, they find themselves in war-torn Rhodesia and travelling across Europe in a campervan. Later, after living in London for a year, Ellie and Ivan have four children, return to the Church of Rome, where the children are all christened, and vote for Nelson Mandela in the first free election in South Africa. Join Ellie on this trip through her exciting and unusual life, follow along as she stamps her passport with the forty-two countries she's visited, and watch as she learns that life is just like a game of hopscotch, with infinite players, life-defining markers, and a hop away from the next adventure.
