Synopsis: SS Obersturmfuhrer Paul Meissner arrives in Auschwitz wounded and fit only for administrative duty. His most pressing task is to improve camp morale, so he establishes a chess club for enlisted men. Soon Meissner learns that chess is also played among the prisoners, and there are rumors of an unbeatable Jew known as ''the Watchmaker.'' Meissner finds Emil Clement, the Watchmaker, and a curious relationship arises between them. Twenty years later, the two meet again in Amsterdam. Emil wants nothing to do with the ex-Nazi officer, but Meissner is persistent. As both men search for a modicum of peace, they recall a gripping tale of survival and trust.

About the Author: John Donoghue has published numerous articles about the treatment of mental illness in a variety of medical journals. He lives in Liverpool and The Death's Head Chess Club is his first novel.
