MISCHA TUROW by Alexander Günsberg

Mischa Turow, daughter of a Swiss-Jewish mother and a Russian father, is a highly talented, extremely attractive young woman. As a chess prodigy and physics luminary she attained international fame early on,  acted as the successor of Einstein and upcoming world champion in chess and referred to as the genius of the century. She moves in the highest circles, including those of Russian President Sergei Ivanovich Kutin who uses her as a celebrity PR for his country. No one suspects, however, that she hides a diabolical secret. A page-turner, hard to beat for excitement and surprises!
