The second in the series featuring FBI Special Agent Dana Whitestone finds a sadistic killer playing a deadly game of chance on the streets of New York

A criminal mastermind is carrying out a deadly game of murder on the streets of New York. Following the rules of chess he moves his victims around the city, leaving his sinister calling cards at each blood-soaked crime scene. But as the body count mounts, the New York police force is no nearer to catching this sadistic killer. Expert profiler FBI Special Agent Dana Whitestone is brought in to help. Still bruised from her encounter with The Cleveland Slasher, Dana, and her partner Jeremy Brown, soon become embroiled in a macabre game of cat and mouse as they try to hunt down this highly intelligent but utterly ruthless murderer before he claims his next victim. And then they realize they might be up against not one killer but two-and all hell breaks loose.

Why did countries engage in a nuclear arms race? How do we make decisions when we don't have all the information? What makes international environmental cooperation possible?

Game theory is the study of how we make a decision when the outcome of our moves depends on the decisions of someone else. But it's not just about predicting your opponent's next play in a game of chess; conflict and cooperation lie at the heart of game theory, which is useful for understanding behaviour in everything from our social lives to business, global politics to evolutionary theory.

In Introducing Game Theory, economists Ivan and Tuvana Pastine explore this fascinating area, which looks beneath the surface of human behaviour ? calling upon psychology, evolutionary biology, political science and sociology to explain why, when faced with a decision, we sometimes cooperate, sometimes clash, and sometimes act in a way that seems completely random.

Stylishly brought to life by regular Guardian illustrator Tom Humberstone, the book takes readers on a tour of the key ideas and thinkers, and puts you into a series of games that provide a new perspective on the world we live in.

They specialize in applications of game theory and have published jointly and separately on a wide variety of fields, analyzing coordinating advertising and price dynamics, political campaign financing, affirmative action in education, sovereign default, speculative attacks, labour migration and international trade.

'They were no longer partners keen to test out their abilities in lighthearted play; they were enemies bent on each other's destruction.'

When it is discovered that the reigning world chess champion, Mirko Czentovic, is on board a cruiser heading for Buenos Aires, a fellow passenger challenges him to a game. Czentovic easily defeats him, but during the rematch a mysterious Austrian, Dr B., intervenes and, to the surprise of everyone, helps the underdog obtain a draw. When, the next day, Dr B. confides in a compatriot travelling on the same ship and decides to reveal the harrowing secret behind his formidable chess knowledge, a chilling tale of imprisonment and psychological torment unfolds.

Stefan Zweig's last and most famous story, 'The Game of Chess' was written in exile in Brazil and explores its author's anxieties about the situation in Europe following the rise of the Nazi regime. The tale is presented here in a brand-new translation, along with three of the master storyteller's most acclaimed novellas: 'Twenty-four Hours in the Life of a Woman', 'The Invisible Collection' and 'Incident on Lake Geneva'.

About the Author

One of the most prominent European writers of the 1920s and 1930s, Stefan Zweig (1881-1942) left his native Austria in 1934 following the rise of Nazism, committing suicide in exile in Brazil.
