Go Spotting: Jeffery Deaver’s “Trouble in Mind”

Jeffery Deaver’s 2014 book of short crime stories “Trouble in Mind” has a story “The Competitors” set at the Beijing Olympics, reports Tony 2015.08.01_troubleinmindAtkins. “In it, the Chinese head of security out-thinks terrorists as he is a go player,” says Atkins, who’s Vice-President of the British Go Association. “He explains to the US and Russian officers ‘It’s our version of Chess. Only better, of course.’”  The head of security “I look forward when I play the game. You must always look forward to beat your opponent at go. You must see beyond the board.”

Atkins has added this book to the exhaustive round-up of “Novels and Other Books Featuring Go” on the BGA website.
