"Michael Mueller has waited twenty years. He is finally the right age.  He is more prepared than any player in history.  All he needs is an opponent.  It is time to start the game. The “Kings” of New York City are dying and Michael, obsessed with Bobby Fischer and the game of chess, is killing them at specific sights on certain dates across the grid of New York City's “chess board”.  The killer wants the ultimate match, in front of the biggest crowd, in the world's most renown
New York City Homicide Detective Paul Worton has seen it all in his thirty years on the force, but when he and his squad are sent to Carnegie Hall to solve the murder of New York City Philharmonic Director Vincent Antonelli, he may have met his “match”.  This first brutal execution blossoms into a string of sensational deaths connected by one distinct clue which signals the presence of a diabolical serial killer. The stakes are enormous in the final game as New York City landmarks become killing grounds and pressure from the public, the media, and the top brass scream for the capture of the “Chess Board Killer”.  In this race against time, will Worton be able to sift through the “moves” and “counter moves” and piece together enough clues to stop this psychopath, or will Mueller fulfill his dream and become the most renowned chess player of all time?
