2 --- A Times Newspapers Supplement, January 2013 www.times.co.nz LifeStyle & Leisure Kick back, relax and take time to enjoy life ByHelenPerry Some readers may still be singing Auld Lang Syne and hanging on to the fun of earlier new year revelery. Others will be delving into corporate wardrobes and checking bus timetables as their annual break comes to an end. And, of course, the kids will be readying themselves for a new school term. However, a lucky few will be just setting out on their holidays and looking forward to a chance to kick back and relax. Naturally, everyone will be thinking the giving is over and done with for another year. But do I have a surprise for you. To celebrate the arrival of 2013, I thought I’d give readers a chance or two to pick up an extra – ‘pressie’ no outlay of money needed. So up for grabs in the Times goody basket I have a great book to take to the beach – Threat Vector, by Tom Clancy. In this fast-paced novel internationally acclaimed author, Clancy returns with an explosive tale of global superpowers doing battle. Jack Ryan moves back into the Oval Offce and is immediately faced with an international threat. Chinese President Wei Zhen Lin has been forced to agree with the expansionist policies of his General, and they have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and planned an invasion of Taiwan. The stakes are dangerously high as the Ryan administration attempts to thwart Chinese ambitions, facing missiles and cyber attack. Jack Ryan, Jr. may just be the wild card that his father needs. One problem: someone knows about the intelligence agency, and may be about to blow their cover sky high. A gripping thriller (Penguin – Michael Joseph ) this will keep you ‘booked for hours’, RRP $55.00. WIN! THREAT VECTOR Thanks to the good people at Penguin Group (NZ) the Times has a copy of Threat Vector to give away to one lucky reader.
