First in the series. This one mixes silicon valley high tech (of the 90's), chess, and S & M. Quite a combunation. August meets his future partner, Chris Duckworth, early in the book and they bond in fighting crime and discovering misdeeds. With his hat off to Dashiell Hammett, Coggins pulls some cute antics - the flood building; home and secretary are all similar to Hammett.
I live in Texas and did not have access to this book, but was lucky enough to get it from a friend in California. I'm very glad I got it because this is one of the most entertaining mysteries I've ever read. The lead character, August Riordan, is possibly the most enjoyable character that I've had the good fortune to 'meet'. I finished this book way too quickly and hope that the author, Mark Coggins, writes fast. I look forward to more August Riordan mysteries and hope you (the reader of this review) buys this book and reads it. The Immortal Game is a book that deserves a WIDE audience and I hope this review helps just a little.
