From now until the end of August, Daniel Abraham’s “Balfour and Meriwether in 2 Adventures”  is just  $.99. 40 pages of  Sherlock Holmes crossed with James Bond.

As I have grown old, I have watched the world of my youth fade with me. The damage done by the Great War will never be calculated. And yet, even now, I hear from my friends in the circles of power – in truth, most are now the children of my friends – that a third war in Afghanistan is all but certain. Even more than the war on the continent just passed, I find myself in dread of this new conflict and the powers it may provoke. And yet, also I feel the nostalgia of old hunts, old games, old enemies now lost to history, and feel again not the rush of conflict but its echo. And recall the unparalleled eyes of a most singular woman I once knew… –From the Last Notebooks of Mr. Meriwether, 1919
