With one small chess piece, the sport begins…
For archaeologist and television host Annja Creed, a late-night cellphone name from the NYPD ability something: there's been a homicide and the police want her services. the single hyperlink among a useless physique and the killer is a small elephant of white jade. An artifact that's long past lacking.

It's a perilous conflict of wits, and one fallacious circulation may perhaps suggest video game over.
