The debut of an extraordinary new author – a novel of how a woman, pushed over the edge by the violent deaths of her family, survives only by taking other identities.Stephanie Patrick’s world was destroyed by the Atlantic aircrash. Falling into a downward spiral of prostitution, drugs and drink, she is picked up by a journalist who has discovered that it was a bomb that caused the crash. And it is his murder that pulls her out of herself.The Rhythm Section is not a thriller about the hunt for a terrorist, although that is the path Stephanie takes, and it’s not a story about revenge, although justice for her family is her initial motivation. Rather, The Rhythm Section is the story of Stephanie’s attempt to reclaim herself. She has to rediscover who she is through a series of roles that she is forced to play; she is never herself. As a prostitute, she is Lisa, the chemical blonde. Later, she is Petra Reuter, German anarchist turned mercenary terrorist. Sometimes, she is Marina Gaudenzi, a Swiss businesswoman, or she’s Susan Branch, an American student, or Elizabeth Shepherd, an English management consultant.But whoever she is, she’s never herself because her life depends on her being someone else. This is the way she is trained by the intelligence service that recruits her, but it’s also the way she’s taught herself to be; being someone else has always worked for her and so it does now, until she begins to fall in love for the first time with Frank White. This undermines her completely and poses new questions: which of the many people she has become is the one to have fallen in love? Stephanie? Petra? Or one of the others? With whom has Frank fallen in love? Marina? Or the real Stephanie? More than anything, The Rhythm Section is about a catastrophic crisis of identity.

How to Play in a Rock or Jazz Band: Beginning Fundamentals for the Rhythm Section and Soloists
Remember that scene towards the end of Back to the Future where Marty McFly plays "Johnny B. Goode" with the band at the 1955 high school dance? He gives the band a simple set of instructions for a song they’ve never heard, and they all tear into it like they've been playing together for 20 years. How could they have played a song that they didn't know and had never heard, without any rehearsal or sheet music in front of them? Was it just movie magic? No, it wasn’t! With his simple instructions, McFly told the accompanying band all they needed to know. The band had enough training and experience to interpret those instructions and communicate musically with each other to deliver a very convincing performance. This book, and the accompanying play-along recordings, is designed to give every member of the band, and soloists, that same training and experience. Arming you with the knowledge of scales, chords, harmonic function (music theory), common song structures and forms, as well as the role and function of each member of the band, this collection is as close to playing in real situations as a you can get, short of rounding up the rest of the members of a band and playing this material live.
