BOTB Semifinalist - Checkmate, by Rita Y. Toews and Alex Domokos
A chess game spanning half a century threatens the reputation of the British monarchy. Then a Winnipeg RCMP officer goes on holiday, and soon it is checkmate for more than the original players.
When Stan and Sonja travel to Hungary on their honeymoon they are looking for more than a cultural experience. Sonja is determined to find the brother who sold her into the sex trade in Canada. Stan, an RCMP officer, wants answers to more than one question but a Gypsy, a mobster and a meddling journalist get in his way.
Rita Y. Toews and Alex Domokos are Canadian authors who have been published in numerous magazines. Their co-authored work includes "The Price of Freedom", "Prometheus" and "The Centurion". Their novel "Body Traffic" has been published in print and was short-listed for the Margaret Laurence Book Award.
