P.I. Jimmy McShane is hired to find the murderer of a Manhattan antiquities dealer, who met his death while engaged in the Game of Thirty, an ancient game played by the pharaohs. What our streetwise-and-weary hero discovers is that the killer is all set to play the game one more time, with McShane as his chosen opponent--or ultimate victim.
