    In 1546 Suleiman the Magnificent, Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, issues an invitation to every king in Europe to send their finest player to compete in a chess tournament to determine the champion of the known world. The English delegation is led by esteemed scholar Roger Ascham, accompanied by his pupil, Bess. But on the first night of the tournament, a powerful guest of the Sultan is murdered, and Ascham is tasked with finding the killer. Barbaric deaths, unimaginable depravity and diplomatic treachery unfold before Bess' eyes, indelibly shaping her character and determining how she will perform her future role... as Queen Elizabeth I. Even a pawn can become a queen.
