Unser Geheimtipp für junge Erwachsene: Eine hinreißende Liebesgeschichte, die weit über das Einzelschicksal hinausgeht. Liebe und Tod als Personifikationen ihrer selbst in einem tödlichen Wettstreit um die Gefühle zweier Liebender. Romeo und Julia, Kleopatra und Mark Anton, Napoleon und Josephine, sie alle waren schon Figuren in dem jahrtausendealten Spiel von Liebe und Tod. Die Regeln sind einfach. Verlieben sich die Paare vor dem ausgewürfelten Termin, hat die Liebe gewonnen, trennen sie sich, triumphiert der Tod und einer der Liebenden muss sterben. Immer wieder steht Henry vor der Tür des Jazzclubs, in dem Flora allabendlich singt. Er ist hingerissen von der schönen jungen Frau, ihrer Stimme und ihrer Musik. Flora dagegen versucht lange, sich gegen ihre Gefühle zu wehren. Ihre Haut ist schwarz und eine Beziehung mit einem weißen jungen Mann ist im Seattle des Jahres 1937 völlig ausgeschlossen. Was Flora und Henry nicht wissen: Sie sind nur Figuren in einem uralten Spiel, in dem die Liebe selbst und ihr alter Widersacher Tod menschliche Gestalt angenommen haben. Und beide nutzen all ihre manipulativen Fähigkeiten, um zu gewinnen.
