Description

A fifteenth-century painting by a Flemish master is about to be auctioned off. It represents a game of chess between two historical figures, the Duke of Flanders and his knight. A dark lady in the background sits at a window reading a book. Julia, a young art expert in Madrid, hired to clean the painting, discovers in an X ray an inscription hidden in a corner: Who killed the knight?As more and more clues reveal themselves, Julia becomes obsessed with the question - and in the hunt for the Renaissance murderer finds herself involved with several late-twentieth-century unscrupulous characters: the director of the Madrid branch of Claymore's, the former conductor of the Madrid symphony orchestra, a cocaine-sniffing art historian, a homosexual antique dealer, and a scruffy chess player. All of them sleuths and suspects in this great game of chess, adventure, love, and life.
