About The Book
Kory van Luden is one of the youngest chess grandmasters of his time. Even blindfolded, he can beat almost anyone. But his genius may not save him in the game of life. Not against the most ruthless opponent he will ever face:
His older brother.
Available on Paperback and Many platforms!
This book is a masterwork.
The characters are stunning in their realism, and the amount of research that must have gone into the many settings and situations the characters encounter is incredible. The mystery is woven so tightly that when the big reveal happened, I was dumbfounded. Many times I stopped, flipped back a few pages, and muttered, ‘I’m so confused,’ before pressing on to get the full answer. This plot is seamless and had me totally sucked in for days, and boy, was the payoff ever worth it.
There were points when I thought the author was going off track or that the scene I was reading couldn’t possibly be necessary, but he proved me wrong every time. Don’t pass this book up – you won’t regret it.
5.0 out of 5 stars When Death Won’t Do

wonderfully crafted, and well written
I just don’t know how to even review this book, with all its interwoven complex plots and subplots I’m too afraid I’ll inadvertently give something away. This is a huge, sweeping novel, wonderfully crafted, and well written; the sort that pulls you in and you keep checking to reassure yourself that there’s still plenty left. I loved the characters, I cared about them, I miss them now that I’ve finished the novel. I certainly did not anticipate loving this work– I do not play chess, know very little about the Vietnam era, have never studied yoga, I don’t even have brothers. I plan to let this rest a bit, then reread now that I know the secrets. I can’t remember the last book I finished that I wanted to read again, a very rare thing for me.
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this and I am in no way related 🙂
