This series provides an ideal platform to study chess openings. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practising of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of opening knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to study any chess opening and at the same time improve your general chess skills and knowledge. Bird´s Opening, 1 f4, is an ideal choice for freethinking chess players who prefer to rely on their general chess knowledge and intuition rather than having to memorize and keep up to date with mainline opening theory. Bird´s Opening is essentially the Dutch Defence with an extra move, and White can choose between a number of different set-ups, including the reversed Leningrad, Classical and Stonewall variations, depending on mood and opponents´ responses. In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala examines all the important variations of Bird´s Opening, including the sharp From´s Gambit. Using illustrative games, he explains the main positional and tactical ideas for both sides, provides answers to all the key questions

Opening Argument for the United States in Rebuttal in the Case of Fitz-John Porter:before the Advisory board of officers at Governor´s Islands N. Y. October 2 1878 United States Army/ Asa Bird Gardiner/ Fitz-John Porter
Early this morning, several hours before my arrest, I was woken by an earth tremor. I mention the incident not to suggest that there was a connection - that somehow the fault lines in my life came crashing together in a form of a couple of policemen - for in Tokyo we have a quake like this every month. I am simply relating the sequence of events as it happened. It has been an unusual day, and I would hate to forget anything.... So begins The Earthquake Bird, a haunting novel set in Japan which reveals a murder in its opening minutes and takes its listeners into the mind of the chief suspect, Lucy Fly - a young, vulnerable English girl living and working in Tokyo as a translator. As Lucy is interrogated by the police, she reveals her past to the listener, and it is a past which is dangerously ambiguous and compromising. Why did Lucy leave England for the foreign anonymity of Japan 10 years before, and what exactly had prompted her to sever all links with her family back home? She was the last person to see the murdered girl alive, so why was she not more forthcoming about the circumstances of their last meeting? As Lucy´s story unfolds, it emerges that secrets, both past and present, obsess her waking life. Winner of the CWA John Creasey New Blood Dagger. Winner of the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize. 1.

She´s stuck performing in dives, her daughter hates her, and she’s recovering from a severe nervous breakdown that leaves her petrified in front of large crowds.

Maureen reluctantly accepts and finds herself haunted by visions of something dreadful happening to her daughter Holly, who is soon abducted and held for ransom.
