Can Chief Inspector Howcroft and DS Williams solve the murder of a middle-aged woman found on a cold frosty winter's morning? It would seem the murder was of a sexual attack, wrists bound, and the body is found in Bournemouth, a coastal town where murders are few and far between, to say the least.

As the investigation progresses they find themselves battling the powerfull Special Operations team at 'New Scotland Yard' and in the dangerous mind games of a high profile Judge. But the biggest uncertainty affecting the murder being solved, is the role of 'The Chess Player'...

'The Chess Player' was a nickname given to Rafael Rojas who operates a Colombian money-laundering cartel and manipulates people as 'pawns' in his game. This rivetting short story will keep you guessing and takes you from London to Bogota in an attempt to unravel the murder.

A gripping action thriller that you won't want to put down.
