Story Behind the Story
The King's Pawn was inspired by my time living and working in the South Caucasus, based in Tbilisi. All three countries of the South Caucasus - Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan - are fascinating. But it was with Georgia that I fell head over heels in love. I wanted to capture the magic of the place - its spectacular landscapes, the overwhelming hospitality of its people, its delicious food and wine and its hair-raising roads.
While I was there, an assassination attempt was made that could have changed the course of history - but no one has ever heard of it. The official story is that the attack was foiled solely by blind luck. I invented Sarah's story to help that luck along.
