Computer expert Cat Velis is heading for a job to Algeria. Before she goes, a mysterious fortune teller warns her of danger, and an antique dealer asks her to search for pieces to a valuable chess set that has been missing for years...In the South of France in 1790 two convent girls hide valuable pieces of a chess set all over the world, because the game that can be played with them is too powerful....

When two young women in France of 1790 discover the Montglane Chess Service in Montglane Abbey, their Abbess recognizes its mystic ability to provide anyone playing it with unlimited power and desperately scatter its pieces around the world. But in 1972, computer expert Catherine "Cat" Velis is hired to recover the chess pieces--and is caught up in a nefarious, globe-spanning conspiracy.

    " I loved it the first time I read it. That was before I read more. I liked how it wove real history into the story and made it more believable- this chess set. However reading it again 2009 I felt it was a little unbelievable. Still it's a fun read. "

    " Though maybe not the page turner it claimed to be, I did find it highly engaging. There appear to be sequels which I'm sure will be an interesting read, but I'm not in a rush to buy them. "
