Succession season 3 is here + read these two thrillers out in time for spooky season


(all times CLT)

Succession season 3 is out today. Fans of the show in Egypt and the Middle East can watch the first episode courtesy of OSN. In case you’ve literally just started reading EnterprisePM, we’re all big fans of the show that twists the rich wish-fulfillment trope by portraying the worst family of bn’aires on television right now — not surprising, as they are inspired by the Murdochs. The new season picks up at last season’s cliffhanger finale, so we definitely recommend you start from the top on this one before jumping in. You can catch a glimpse of the snarky dialogue in this exclusive clip from the new season put out by HBO Max (watch, runtime: 1:48).

Arsenal will face Crystal Palace (managed by former Arsenal legend Patrick Vierra) at 9pm in the only English Premier League match on today.

There are two fixtures this evening in the Spanish league: Deportivo Alaves v Real Betis at 7pm, and RCD Espanyol v Cadiz CF at 9pm. The Italian league will see Venezia play ACF Fiorentina at 8:45pm.

The Sinatras are back at Room Art Space and Cafe in New Cairo at 9pm tonight with their tribute to Frank, and joining them is first-time guest vocalist Youssef Gabriel.


Spooky season brings us two buzzy new thrillers perhaps more anticipated for their authors than their content — but strong reviews have us willing to give them a try.

One-time presidential hopeful and former US secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton has launched a new career as a novelist, enlisting acclaimed Canadian murder-mystery writer Louise Penny to co-author State of Terror. The thriller follows Ellen Adams, the woman secretary of state who must save the US when an incompetent and self-regarding president puts the country in harm’s way (stop us if this sounds familiar). Eye-rolling is encouraged, but all good thrillers have a touch of the ridiculous, and Penny’s skill for narrative has critics responding well.

Meanwhile, fans are excited about spy-novel titan John le Carré’s final work, Silverview, completed before the author’s death last December and published in the week of what would have been his 90th birthday. The last novel from the former British spy serves up the same combo of twisty plot and complex characterization that made earlier books like The Spy Who Came In from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy so well-loved.
