The Master

The Master

The third and final installment of the Gameshouse, a mesmerising tale of a mystical gambling house whose deadly games of chance and skill control the fate of empires.

The Gamehouse 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 . . .

And now, the ultimate player is about to step forward.

The three installments of the Gameshouse are also available in a single edition.

Judy Finnigan on THE FIRST FIFTEEN LIVES OF HARRY AUGUST
Beautiful and gripping
GUARDIAN on THE FIFST FIFTEEN LIVES OF HARRY AUGUST
Simply brilliant. The trilogy is comprised of three novelettes... each with a different narrator, setting and - wonderfully - tense. All three feature players in the enigmatic Gameshouse - a location/organisation for those that gamble, and gamble to win...The Gameshouse, as a whole, is one of the best books of the year - a subtle masterpiece that deserves to sweep all the chips from the table.
