One of the lesser episodes
3 April 2017 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Business man Vaughn Taylor has had one too many near-accidents for his wife Catherine McLeod, who believes one of the other board members of his company, all relatives of Taylor, is after his share. She hires David 'Diamond' Janssen to protect her husband, without raising suspicion. Taylor's an avid chess player, so Janssen tries to use that as a means to stay close to Taylor. But Taylor's insights into the game of chess will prove to be Janssen's clue as to what is going on...

A slower and less flashy episode of this otherwise snappy series. Maybe it's because the characters Janssen's surrounded by for this episode that he left his witty one-liners at home, but somehow this one doesn't really sparkle like some of the others. The cast does a decent job tho, but the atypical, almost formal atmosphere (despite some, failed, attempts at comedy by Lawrence Dobkin as a friend of Janssen posing as an East-European chess master to keep Taylor out of harms way) and the way too surprising twist/reveal at the end, make this one of the lesser episodes of this otherwise standout series.
