Daily Review: Check Mate by Ken Fry

Fry packs in plenty of action, drama and twists in his seventy-seven pages than many novelists do in a full-length story.

An obsessive-compulsive man realizes that he can’t predict everyone’s move… like a chess game.

Prentice has an unusual encounter on the road one night but thinks nothing of it. He has a well-planned life, with no place for the unexpected, the uncontrollable.

Oh yes, Joe Prentice has everything under control. Until his wife disappears, and he meets an opponent who knows how to play the game better than he did.

Now, Prentice has to learn the hard way… that not everything goes as planned.

Amazon Review

By Rea

I like Fry’s novels and I’m now liking his short stories as well. At just sixty pages on Kindle, this is a short, sharp read, but one well worth doing.

Fry packs in plenty of action, drama and twists in his seventy-seven pages than many novelists do in a full-length story.

A disgruntled ex-employee leads to a terrifying encounter where mettle is tested and sometimes found wanting. Taut, tight and full of suspense.

A great read!

By Elaina J. Davidson

A man who plans everything to the nth degree suddenly has his power taken from him and has to scramble to plan a way out of a terrible predicament.

Yup, he’s in trouble now! Ken Fry spins quite the yarn and had me wondering how it would all end. This short story is clever, an edge-of-your-seat thriller, with a twist to the tale. Definitely worth a read.

And it certainly showcases the author’s talent – I will be reading more!

Amazon Review

By P.S. Winn

Good short suspense with a twisted ending that I think readers will enjoy. Joe and Martha Prentice have a good life, although a bit boring.

All that is going to change when the husband and wife are caught up in a horrifying situation.

The author does a good job with this short story and has a great reader-friendly writing style.

I think the story was done just right and can’t wait to read more from the author.
