The Knight, a grieving teenage boy caught up in a web of gang violence.
The Queen, a young woman at death’s door, her body ravaged by leukemia.
The Bishop, a disgraced priest haunted by visions of the game.

But Steven isn’t the only one looking for his team, because the Black Queen already has her pieces assembled....
