ALWAYS THOUGHT CHESS
WAS JUST A GAME…
Until the sultry brunette in the little black dress
did her best to incinerate him.
Yesterday was just another day at the office for Steven.
Today, he is the White Pawn, a combatant in a nightmarish
game of chess where people are the pieces, and the world is at stake.
To survive the deadly Black Queen, Steven must
rush to gather the rest of his Pieces:
The Knight, a grieving teenage boy
caught up in a web of gang violence.
The Queen, a young woman at death’s door,
her body ravaged by leukemia.
The Bishop, a disgraced priest haunted by visions of the Game.
The Rook, a suicidal drunk reeling atop a storm-ridden skyscraper.
But Steven isn’t the only one looking for
the remainder of the White,
as the Black Queen already has her Pieces assembled,
and they are on the hunt…
