    Breaking the rules can be deadly. Following them can be worse. 
    The Ten Golden Rules: They are simple. 
    Do not mistake humble for weak, nor meek for frail. 
    Don’t confuse empathy with stupidity, or honesty with foolhardiness. 
    At no time underestimate the power of gratitude. 
    Always be appreciative and sincere. 
    Forever hold true the virtues of integrity and patience. 
    Never assume. 
    *** 
    The Ten Rules of Karma: They are certain. 
    Expectations based on pretenses often come with a price tag too high for even the loftiest of egos. Arrogance is certain to find its way back to powerlessness. 
    Those who put themselves first always die unaided, afraid, and eventually overlooked. 
    Honor comes not with manipulation or forced servitude. 
    What you give is what you receive tenfold. 
    Truth is in action and intention alone.

    Edgar Award winner: Bored with retirement, an ex-spy challenges his old agency to a game  Miles Kendig is one of the CIA’s top deep-cover agents, until an injury ruins him for active duty. Rather than take a desk job, he retires. But the tawdry thrills of civilian life—gambling, drinking, sex—offer none of the pleasures of the intelligence game. Even a Russian agent’s offer to go to work against his old employers seems dull. Without the thrill of unpredictable conflict, Kendig skulks through Paris like the walking dead. To revive himself, he begins writing a tell-all memoir, divulging every secret he accumulated in his long career. Neither CIA nor KGB can afford to have it in print, and so he challenges them both: Until they catch him, a chapter will go to the publisher every week. Kendig’s life is fun again, with survival on the line.
