Arbiter Samuel Povich is hired to referee an international chess tournament on a peculiar Caribbean island. But a fatal attraction inexorably draws him into a plot to revenge the rape and murder of a young girl's mother. What is a man capable of in the name of love? A Softness in the Eyes is a modern day take on the myth of Isis and Osiris. It is a story of murder and revenge fueled by love and obsession inside a world of black kings and death-eating grey tigers.

"I took my place on the lifeguard chair and waited for word from Ana as the clocks ticked away the time-my time, our time, the timeless time of held breaths, of death and nothingness. I felt like Osiris trapped in the wooden chest, lodged in the heart of a tree, waiting for a goddess to find my body parts, piece me back together. And I felt like Horus, the son, caught in the vise of betrayal and revenge...I'm no saint, but the Devil himself couldn't have been more pleased with this middle game from Hell."
