Trans-century reimaginings of mysterious (pseudo)historical events became quite the rage in the DA VINCI CODE days, but Katherine Neville has been teasing out these sorts of thrilling yarns since the late 1980s. In THE FIRE, the family chess legacy introduced in THE EIGHT continues, as Alexandra Solarin (daughter of the heroine of the earlier book) hunts for a spectacular chess set that contains the secret to life eternal. History is itself a game for Neville, as she shuffles the reader from century to century and across the continents in this exhilarating story.
