The Chess Mystery

Written by Moe Zilla

It was almost magic. All the chess pieces looked like little people. My father had owned this set for over 20 years. All our lives, my father had fascinated my siblings and me as he moved the special pieces around the board. In a cabin in the woods, he stored the chess set safely for our family vacation each summer. Every year he'd play one game of chess against our uncle. And each year, the game always ended with Uncle Larry saying the same words.

"Check mate."

But this year would be surprisingly different, since there would be an interrupted game of chess -- and a mystery.
