Somewhere Over the Rainbow
The Land of Oz is full of characters, each unique and yet also familiar to bridge players everywhere. In this third installment, the Over the Rainbow Bridge Club is threatened by dark forces led by the Wicked Witch of the West. Can Dorothy and her friends come to the rescue?
A worthy, very enjoyable completion of the trilogy begun with Bridge over the Rainbow. The plot is nicely advanced by dozens of deals that feature fresh and challenging problems with expert-level analyses. Especially interesting are the clever variations that highlight how the characters' personalities influence bidding and play at different tables. -The Bridge World
