Even Dead Men Play Chess

Authored by Michael Weitz

Making house calls and meeting people in public is how Ray Gordon makes his living. He's not a doctor. He's not a prostitute. Ray Gordon is a chess teacher.

When one of Ray's students, Walter Kelly, is found dead in his shop, the police and family let it go as an accident. Ray, however, doesn't buy it. As a former cop with a lingering curiosity, Ray snoops around and stumbles into the murky world of methamphetamine, the worst drug epidemic of our time.

The problem? Walter Kelly was 65 years old and his only addictions were woodworking and chess. How does a 65 year old man become involved with illegal drugs? Why is a neighbor glad Walter's dead? And just how do dead men play chess?
