A taut thriller set against the turbulent history of Ukraine and the Crimea, giving fascinating and thought-provoking insight into the country's current crisis. It has been twenty-five years since the four friends left school, burdened with the dark secret of a game that ended in tragedy.
Now, driven by love, loss and loyalty, they meet to play Tony's game once more.
Tony, the mastermind, has planned the moves that will take each player across continents.
The rules are the same, but they have grown up, and the stakes are much, much higher.
They will be forced to open a forgotten page of history: the Crimea conference of 1945, where three world leaders divided up the world and created a new map of Europe after the Second World War.
How are the secret talks of those leaders connected with this dangerous new game? And why has Tony decided to play again?
