I have missed doing this meme so much. I am a book cover judge and I have been judging for years. So to get to do a whole meme dedicated to just covers is like second nature for me and fun. Today's theme is all about Chess pieces. My revelation about this was chess piece on the cover means thriller/mystery. Hmmm! Oh by the way, I didn't pick Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer because I thought everyone else would pick it.

~ Chess Pieces ~
In 1770, Baron Wolfgang von Kempelen introduces Vienna to the Mechanical Turk?an unbeatable chess-playing automaton that, unbeknownst to an astonished Europe, is in fact nothing more than an illusion. The Turk is actually operated from within by a God-fearing dwarf named Tibor, whose chess-playing abilities and diminutive size make him the perfect accomplice in this grand hoax. But when a seductive countess dies under mysterious circumstances in the presence of the Turk, the machine and its inventor become the target of espionage, persecution, and intrigue. Based on a true story, this celebrated debut is a daring piece of storytelling, brimming with lust, scandal, and deception.
