Gameshouse Novella 2Unknown - 2016
From Claire North comes the second of three novellas set in the ingenious and thrilling world of the Gameshouse. The Gameshouse is an unusual institution. Many know it as the place where fortunes can be made and lost though games of chess, backgammon-every game under the sun. 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. In 1930s Bangkok, one higher league player has just been challenged to a game of hide and seek. The board is all of Thailand-and the seeker may use any means possible to hunt down his quarry-be it police, government, strangers, or even spies.
