This breathtaking historical adventure set in 1770 Vienna tells of an astonishing invention: an unbeatable chess-playing automaton. Hailed as the century's greatest innovation, it is really only a brilliant illusion. Based on a true story,full of envy, lust, murder, scandal, and deception. "It's all great fun and mercifully free of any tedious chess talk."—Washington Post
