All it takes is a few underhanded moves by a tough ex-cop named Eppick to pull thief John Dortmunder into a game he never wanted to play. With no choice, he musters his always-game gang and they set out on a perilous treasure hunt for a long-lost gold and jewel-studded chess set once intended as a birthday gift for the last Romanov czar.

From the moment Dortmunder reaches for his first pawn, he faces insurmountable odds. The purloined past of this precious set is destined to confound any strategy he finds on the board. Success is not inevitable with Dortmunder leading the attack, but he's nothing if not persistent, and some gambit or other might just stumble into a winning move. Download and start listening now!

    " This is a book that is sort of different for me. I like sci-fi and this book is not like that, but I truly enjoyed it. If you like cops and robbers where the robbers are a little better than the cops and little twist at the end you will like this book. "

    " An enjoyable heist story, and worth the read. Westlake takes his time setting up all of his dominoes before sending them into action. In the end I felt a bit too much time was wasted in aligning the pieces and too few of them paid off in the end. However, Westlake's characters and dry humor kept me entertained from cover to cover, leaving me wanting to read another book in the Dortmunder series. "

    " A complicated caper story much like the other Westlake stories featuring the burglar Dormunder and his pals. A quick fun read but not very memorable. Very light hearted. Wish all burglars were of the same ilk as this bunch, but alas -- not so! "

    " This is a book of blunders. A burglar is forced by an ex-cop to perform a heist of a chess set worth millions. He has an Andy Capp attitude, but enlists his fellow burglars' help to obtain the goods. It's all pure luck along the way as these fellow thieves embark on their path. I learned a lot about the underbelly of society in this book. I thought it was good as it had me hanging all the way through to the unexpected conclusion. "
