Ideas for stories are everywhere. They’re in archaeological digs, scientific hoaxes, fairy tales, peculiar laws, the lonely hearts, identity theft, and football matches.

As Somadina discovers that her sister has become a strategic pawn in a dangerous game, she vows to do anything to get the attention of this kindred, uncooperative lady.
