    PLOT OR PREMISE A body is found with the letter P carved into its forehead P stands for pawn, and it is dumped in upper Manhattan, using the streets as a chessboard The Knight and Bishop follow And the chess game begins Inspector Regal has been chosen by the killer to play the game, which he does through moves placed in the New York Times As long as the game is interesting, nobodies But Regal is not a very good chess player, the game becomes dull for the killer, and another body ap PLOT OR PREMISE A body is found with the letter P carved into its forehead P stands for pawn, and it is dumped in upper Manhattan, using the streets as a chessboard The Knight and Bishop follow And the chess game begins Inspector Regal has been chosen by the killer to play the game, which he does through moves placed in the New York Times As long as the game is interesting, nobodies But Regal is not a very good chess player, the game becomes dull for the killer, and another body appears But Regal has an ace in the hole a retired master player named Billy Abbott who left the chess world behind and disappeared before it took over his life Abbott tells Regal the moves to make the game interesting, and for awhile, he does even turning the game around and winning But having Regal win the game is not the object of the killer who targets Regal personally A series of sub plots involve a cop working for Regal who had been killed during the line of duty while hunting down Panamanian drug runners, and a female cop who loved him and wants justice a political side with Regal butting heads with his departmental rival who is in charge of both investigations and a personal side, with Regal suspecting his wife of having an affair with a power mogul This is the second Dev Strkyer novel, a nom de plume for Warren Murphy and Molly Cochrane..WHAT I LIKED I love Murphy and Cochrane s work, and this one is no exception Well written, the chess strategies are well mixed, and the story moves along fast enough with a lot of sub plots mixed in to keep life interesting when the bodies are on hold Even the political manouevering is interesting The ending, although pat, is not a typical everybody lives happily ever after finish..WHAT I DIDN T LIKE The climax is too pat, and too action oriented rather than detection based I knew who the killer was long before they were revealed, and I m not even sure why the authors chose to reveal the killer when they did, other than the realization perhaps that the reader already knows by then so the mystery is really gone The only question was when and where they were going to be caught, if at all As well, Stryker doesn t really play fair with the reader at the start in terms of the depiction of the killer, but I still figured it out before the end despite the intentional misdirection..BOTTOM LINE You ll never look at chess as boring again.DISCLOSURE I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review I was not personal friends with the author, but I did follow him on social media

    Inhoud Het eerste lijk wordt gevonden in een vuilnisbak in een van de sjiekste wijken van New York, het tweede niet ver daarvandaan Pas bij het derde slachtoffer realiseert hoofdinspecteur Paul Regal zich dat de bizarre moorden verband houden met de mysterieuze telefoontjes die hij sinds kort ontvangt.Plotseling doorziet Paul Regal welk morbide spel de moordenaar speelt Hij wordt door de moordenaar uitgedaagd voor een luguber partijte schaak De straten van New York fungeren als bord, de lijk Inhoud Het eerste lijk wordt gevonden in een vuilnisbak in een van de sjiekste wijken van New York, het tweede niet ver daarvandaan Pas bij het derde slachtoffer realiseert hoofdinspecteur Paul Regal zich dat de bizarre moorden verband houden met de mysterieuze telefoontjes die hij sinds kort ontvangt.Plotseling doorziet Paul Regal welk morbide spel de moordenaar speelt Hij wordt door de moordenaar uitgedaagd voor een luguber partijte schaak De straten van New York fungeren als bord, de lijken als schaakstukken.Regal heeft geen flauw idee waarom de moordenaar nu juist tegen h m wil spelen, hij weet alleen dat hij geen keuze heeft Regal zal het spel moeten meespelen tot het bittere einde, en terwijl de seconden op de klok langzaam wegtikken, blijkt een dramatische ontknoping onvermijdelijkWaardering Een ongelooflijk goed geschreven boek De spanning wordt opgebouwd en brengt je naar een eind waar je van geniet Dat was mijn gevoel toen ik het boek las De waardering van drie sterren heeft te maken met het feit dat ik voor de rest weinig tot niets kan vertellen over hoe ik me voelde bij dit boek Overige boekinformatie Uitgeverij AreopagusISBN 90.5108.130.8268 pagina s

    One of my very few 5 star authors, given the number of authors I ve read Unfortunately, after End Game, Stryker wrote twobooks The first one was Deathright and introduced a new character It was two stars, at best, and I never bothered to read the follow up.Makes you wonder what happens

    interesting read its always fun reading detective novels set in the 90s They are usually misogynistic, and technology is a foreign concept a fun blast to the past.
