KIRKUS REVIEW

Scrivener's search- for a missing fortune- begins with the inheritance of a title but no bankroll, and a red bishop, and takes him to Germany where he is quickly checkmated. An old castle with its well kept secrets and its subterranean passages, a monstrous game of living chess which had been played in the 16th century and the telltale treasure which is found in a tower, all contrive a melodrama which may be unlikely but has an ingratiating verve- and nerve.
