I didn't know much about chess until I read this story and gained a little knowledge on how the game is played...Power, Control, Sell Out or Trade ...some of the odds of Redemption....A very tantalizing story and very well written!

Review - It is rare in the world of literature when I don't see the ending coming. It is a delight when I'm surprised! Great writing as always. Smooth, entertaining, gripping. Again, this would be a great entry for a contest. Awesome job. Robynn

The title intrigued me immediately for obvious reasons, John, and then the blurb above sealed the deal. I had to read it.
