With Nina Talikova by his side, Dane is determined to find out who killed his friend and restore a nation's history. But the game board is not in his favor, and when checkmate comes Dane discovers his enemies were once allies who know every move he'll make. In a winner-take-all contest against the toughest odds Dane and Nina have ever faced, they go on the offensive, not knowing if it will be good enough to save the treasures, or even their own lives.
