The story chronicles the deadly ambitions and lusts of Emile Gerrault, a wealthy French businessman who amasses a fortune in pursuit of power during the Industrial Revolution, and Jean Lavasseur, a police detective determined to stop him. An ongoing chess game is a metaphor of the spiraling tension between them as the stakes continue to rise.cover art by Richard H. Ryan
