Read by Anton Lesser.
The "Black Queen" is what Billy calls his shadowy neighbour because she always lurks about her garden alone except for her cat, and dressed in a black coat and wide brimmed black hat.
Billy is scared when the Black Queen asks him to look after her cat while she is away. He can't resist the urge to peek inside her house where he sees chessboards scattered everywhere. Who is the Black Queen and what sort of game is she playing? Billy thinks he knows . . .
A brilliant, intriguing novel.
