(From the publisher):
The essence of the game of chess lies in the ability of the player to foresee which move the player on the other side will make. That in itself is difficult enough. Not knowing the identity of your advisory only adds to the problem put before you. The four inhabitants of the 'castles' around York Square are made part of an unpleasant and dangerous chessgame. One question almost immediately springs to mind if in fact one of the pawns isn't a player also? Are Robert, Emily, Myra and Percival York players or being played?
