The year is 1546, and Suleiman the Magnificent, the powerful and feared Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, issues an invitation to every king in Europe: You are invited to send your finest player to compete in a chess tournament to determine the champion of the known world. Thousands converge on Constantinople, including the English court's champion and his guide, the esteemed scholar Roger Ascham. Seeing a chance to enlighten the mind of a student, Ascham brings along Elizabeth Tudor, a brilliant young woman not yet thrust into royal duties. Yet on the opening night of the tournament a powerful guest of the Sultan is murdered. Soon, barbaric deaths, diplomatic treachery, and unimaginable depravity-sexual and otherwise-unfold before Elizabeth and Ascham's eyes. The pair soon realizes that the real chess game is being played within the court itself...and its most treacherous element is that a stranger in a strange land is only as safe as her host is gracious., Great Britain, Historical fiction., IG$A, Includes bibliographical references (pages 309-310)., Istanbul (Turkey), MWT11752672, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., Narrator not specified., New York :Gallery Books,2015., Originally published: Australia : Pan Macmillan, 2013., PR9619.3.R445T68 2015, Reilly, Matthew,author., Serial murder investigation, The tournament /Matthew Reilly., The tournamentMatthew Reilly., Unabridged., When the feared sultan of the mid-16th-century Ottoman Empire issues a chess tournament challenge to European royals, a young Elizabeth I accompanies England's champion, only to witness a brutal murder amid dangerous court machinations., YDXCPengrdaYDXCPBTCTAOCLCQBDXTNHUPZOCLCOTnLvILS, [United States]:Simon & Schuster Audio ,2015., a-tu---e-uk---, computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/sas_9781442391307_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, texttxt, unmediatedn, volumenc, ©2013
