The Quiz Masters
by Brydon Coverdale
‘The Shark’ reveals the hidden stories and winning strategies from the world of quiz shows.
Who wants to be a millionaire?
Brydon Coverdale did, and dedicated himself to outsmarting quiz masters on every Australian TV and radio trivia format he could – until he became so successful, he was hired by The Chase to stop others from winning.
The Quiz Masters is his fascinating, charming and funny memoir of how he played the game, along the way giving us a how-to guide for anyone who aspires to win a million dollars. As Brydon takes us through his own quizzing journey, he also reveals the psychology behind ordinary people who are prepared to gamble, under maximum pressure, in front of huge audiences, with only their brain in their armoury, and reveals how the great champions developed their special tricks of the trade.
The Quiz Masters truly takes us behind the scenes of a world that’s both hugely familiar yet intriguingly unknown.
With a Mind To Kill
by Anthony Horowitz
It is M’s funeral. One man is missing from the graveside: the traitor James Bond, in custody accused of M’s murder.
Behind the Iron Curtain, a group of former Smersh and Stasi agents now want to use their lethal British spy against a target whose assassination will change history. Bond is smuggled into the lion’s den to receive his orders – but whose orders is he following, and what will he do when the time comes to pull the trigger?
In a mission where one false move means death, Bond must also grapple with the darkest questions about himself – but not even he knows what has happened to the man he used to be.
Blade of Secrets #1
by Tricia Levenseller
Eighteen-year-old Ziva prefers metal to people. She spends her days tucked away in her forge, safe from society and the anxiety it causes her, using her magical gift to craft unique weapons imbued with power.
Then Ziva takes a job from a powerful warlord, and the result is a sword capable of stealing its victims’ secrets. A sword with the strength to topple kingdoms. When Ziva learns of the warlord’s intentions to use the weapon to enslave all the world under her rule, she takes her sister and flees.
Joined by a distractingly handsome mercenary and a young scholar with knowledge of the world’s known magics, Ziva and her sister set out on a quest to keep the sword safe until they can find someone worthy of wielding it – or a way to destroy it entirely.
