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.
'They were no longer partners keen to test out their abilities in lighthearted play; they were enemies bent on each other's destruction.'
The cultural milieu in the 'Age of Goethe' of eighteenth-century Germany is given fresh context in this art historical study of the noted writer's patroness: Anna Amalia, Duchess of Weimar-Sachsen-Eisenach. An important noblewoman and patron of the arts, Anna Amalia transformed her court into one of the most intellectually and culturally brilliant in Europe; this book reveals the full scope of her impact on the history of art of this time and place. More than just biography or a patronage study, this book closely examines the art produced by German-speaking artists and the figure of Anna Amalia herself. Her portraits demonstrate the importance of social networks that enabled her to construct scholarly, intellectual identities not only for herself, but for the region she represented. By investigating ways in which the duchess navigated within male dominated institutions as a means of advancing her own self-cultivation - or Bildung - this book demonstrates the role accorded to women in the public sphere, cultural politics, and historical memory. Cumulatively, Christina Lindeman traces how Anna Amalia, a woman from a small German principality, was represented as an active participant in enlightened discourses. The author presents a novel and original argument concerned with how a powerful woman used art to shape her identity, how that identity changed over time, and how people around her shaped it - an approach that elucidates the power of portraiture in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Europe.
