In 1988, still in the aftermath of the Cold War, the Soviet chess star, Elena Ajmilóvskaia, will take advantage of the Thessaloniki Olympics to flee with John Donaldson, the captain of the US team.

Meanwhile, KGB agent Víktor Bakatin, who is in charge of surveillance of the USSR's selection, gets drunk at the hotel bar outside of everything.

Elena's desertion, along with the defeat of the Soviet team for the first time in history at the hands of Hungarian girls, the Polgar sisters, will bring incalculable consequences to the life of Viktor, victim of a dark epoch of our recent past.

David Vicente masterfully recaptures the figure of the omniscient narrator to build, through lives that are interwoven by the threads of chance, an ambitious plot that brings us not only a part of our history, but also shows us how random may be our destiny.

As its title indicates, This could be a lady's gambit, but it's a love song is a novel about chess, about politics, about the absurd and strange that sometimes happens our existence ... But, above all, it is about a novel of unconditional love, which shows that sometimes the story is better explained from fiction than from textbooks.
