Hidden forces are willing to kill any and all

who stand in the way of untold billions. To

toss the authorities off track, they borrow

the modus operandi of a brutal serial killer

The Chessman who stalked the corridors

of power in Washington, D.C. some years

earlier. The ruse is working brilliantly except

for one minor detail: the real Chessman is

not pleased not pleased one iota that

someone has stolen his M.O. Enter Drew Cady,

ex-FBI agent, who finds himself being sucked

back into the very case that almost took his

life, a case that crippled him both physically

and emotionally. By capturing The Chessman

and his blood-spattered copycat, Cady has a

last shot at redemption. If he can find a way to

survive, that is.
