Adeliza, Henry´s widowed queen and Matilda´s stepmother, has always been on Matilda´s side but now she is married to William D´Albini, a warrior of the opposition. In a world where a man´s word is law, how can Adeliza obey her husband while supporting Matilda, the rightful queen? What does it cost to be ´Lady of the English´?
Leseprobe aus dem Kapitel ´´Greetings and introductions´´ (S. 42-43) What to say when you enter We all know that greetings are not the same the world over. If you choose to match style, points to watch for are: whether handshakes are made or not (less common after the first meeting) strength of handshake: you should mirror, strong with strong and gentle with gentle amount of eye contact or looking away: again, mirror - don´t force someone to look in your eyes if they don´t want to distance between persons: could be much further or closer than you are used to use of first or last names: this often causes uncertainty. Listen carefully and then match the style. Americans, Australians and British tend to use first names very soon, if not immediately - ´´You can call me Robert.´´ Other cultures use ´´Mr´´ and ´´Ms´´ to start with and may or may not switch to first names later. Chinese often have an additional western first name, which you should then use. Japanese often add ´´san´´ at the end of the name conversation making: be prepared to do it! Example When doing business with the Far East, watch out for card exchanging when greeting. Koreans, for example, will stand apart, approach each other, bow, exchange business cards using both hands, step back and then read each other´s business card aloud, with appropriate remarks ´´I see you are the Business Director ...´´. This shows respect for the persons and their posi- tions. As a foreigner, you are not expected to know how exactly to bow (different depths show different levels of respect), but you should not write on the business card and definitely not put it into the back pocket of your trousers. Watch to see what the other does.
Spy turned art restorer Gabriel Allon finds himself accused of murder in this New York Times bestseller from Daniel Silva. An Israeli spy by trade and art restorer by preference, Gabriel Allon arrives in Zurich to restore the work of an Old Master for a millionaire banker-and finds himself standing in blood and framed for the man´s murder. While trying to clear his name, Allon is swept into a spiraling chain of events involving Nazi art theft, a decades-old suicide, and a dark and bloody trail of killings-some of them his own. The spy world Allon thought he had left behind has come back to haunt him. And he will have to fight for his life-against an assassin he himself helped train. From the Paperback edition.
