Kory van Luden is one of the youngest chess grandmasters of his time. Even blindfolded, he can beat almost anyone. But his genius may not save him in the game of life. Not against the most ruthless opponent he will ever face:
His older brother.

Born with war in his blood, Damon van Luden is the best of the military's elite. He's as cunning and ruthless as he is strong. He'll stop at nothing to get what he wants.

What Kory cherishes, Damon takes by force.

Now, the two brothers are at war over a family trust worth more than 400 million dollars.

The first to marry will win control over the family legacy and the enormous van Luden fortune.

And both brothers have set their sights on the same beautiful young woman . . .

A sprawling epic novel spanning five nations and five decades, WHEN DEATH WON'T DO (originally published as TRUST MATTERS) has been heralded by readers as "original," "superb," "stunning," and "exhilarating"—a grand saga filled with action, suspense, romance, mystery, drama, and a cast of characters you will never forget.

About the Author

Born in Paris, on a wet day in March, 1965, William Arsenis left France at the age of two and spent his childhood in the upper-west side of Manhattan. At twelve, he went to Geneva, Switzerland, where he finished high school. He then returned to the United States for college but after three semesters, decided he wanted to be a pianist, and started music studies at the Conservatory of Athens.

He took on a "temporary" job as a computer programmer to support his family, and after six years of the nine-to-five ordeal, he was ready to jump off a tall building. Instead of earning his wings the hard way, however, he followed the more conventional path to becoming a pilot. He flew for eight different European startup airlines and was based in Greece, England, Belgium, Ireland, France, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Portugal and Spain. In early 2001, got his dream job with Southwest Airlines and he's been working there ever since.

Still a chess enthusiast, but no longer a fanatic, you won't find him studying for competitions anymore. Instead, he prefers to spend his free time with his family, at the piano, and, of course, writing.

He writes both fiction and nonfiction with a common theme of how conflict and suffering can spark the mindful awareness that leads to inner peace.

His Mindful Awareness blog as well as information on his latest books can be found at www.WilliamArsenis.com.

William lives in Arizona with his wife, three boys, and two dogs.
