The favorite to win the US Chess Championship is found dead. Was it suicide, or murder? Unfortunately the cop who lands the case is Ray Gordons former partner - and the two havent spoken in years for good reason. Since the victim was a friend and he doesnt trust the police investigation, Ray decides to take matters into his own hands.
When others begin to disappear though, Ray finds himself deep within a savage game that becomes personal in more ways than one.They say when it rains it pours. For Ray, that cliche couldnt be more true.
