of the most powerful men in Chicago. His smile may be razor sharp, but he’s
crueler than the devil.I’m playing a dangerous game and betting my life I’m going to win. I pretend to
be his pawn. I do as he says and move where he tells me, letting him think he’s
in control as I position myself for revenge.
Every turn brings us closer. His grin doesn’t seem as evil when we’re alone.
Behind closed doors, I welcome his unrelenting and vicious personality. He’s
confessed all his secrets, but I’m holding one back and it’s a game changer.
If I survive the board, this pawn turns into a queen. I become the most
powerful player and send all the other pieces running. To get what I want, I
must make sacrifices, but am I willing to draw the line at him?
