Teaser:

With one small chess piece, the game begins...

For archaeologist Annja Creed, a call from the NYPD means one thing: there's been a murder and they need her expertise. The only link between a dead body and the killer is a small missing elephant of white jade.

Once belonging to Catherine the Great, the elephant was key in a risky political gambit, but there is another story attached to the artifact -- a rumor of hidden treasures. And for a cruel mogul with a penchant for tomb-raiding, the elephant is nothing short of priceless.

Annja must move quickly. It's a deadly battle of wits, and one wrong move could mean game over.

Back Cover:

With one small chess piece, the game begins…

For archaeologist and TV host Annja Creed, a late-night phone call from the NYPD means one thing: there's been a murder and the police need her expertise. The only link between a dead body and the killer is a small elephant of white jade. An artifact that's gone missing.

Once belonging to Catherine the Great of Russia, the elephant was key in a risky political gambit all those years ago. But there is another story attached to the artifact—a rumor of an ancient hidden treasure. And for a cruelly ambitious media mogul with a penchant for tomb-raiding, the elephant is nothing short of priceless.

Annja must make her move quickly, traveling across several continents with only the assistance of her extraordinary sword—purportedly the same sword wielded by Joan of Arc—and a mysterious temple monk. It's a deadly battle of wits, and one wrong move could mean game over.
