Abstract:

"Who killed the knight?" This single phrase, inscribed in Latin on a 15th-century Flemish panel depicting a game of chess, has been hidden for centuries beneath a layer of paint. Julia, who restores art for a living, has discovered the inscription. She lets only a few people in on the secret: Menchu, her friend and the dealer who expects to make a bundle on the painting; the elegant César, her protector since childhood; and Álvaro, her former lover and an art history expert. Soon after Julia meets with Álvaro, he is found dead, and a peculiar game begins. The murderer circles Julia, signaling every lethal move with clues taken from the chess game depicted in the panel, and Julia and César must enlist the aid of a chess genius to figure out what their moves should be.
