The Killing Game by Nancy Bush

Book blurb…

The Rules Are Simple:  It’s the ultimate test of strategy and skill. The killer chooses each opponent carefully, learning each one’s weaknesses. Every meticulously planned move is leading to a devastating checkmate. Because in this game, all the pretty pawns must die.

First You Play:  Andi Wren is fighting to keep her late husband’s company safe from vindictive competitors. When she receives an ominous note, Little birds must fly, she turns to P.I. Luke Denton. But though Luke has personal reasons for wanting to take down Wren Development’s opponents, his investigation suggests this is deeper and far more dangerous than a business grudge.

Then You Die:  In a basement on the outskirts of town, police detectives unearth piles of skeletons. As they learn the shocking truth about each victim’s identity, their case collides with Andi’s, revealing a killer’s ruthless plot and a chilling, lethal endgame. . .

My thoughts…

 The Killing Game is packed with suspense and intrigue.

The author essentially delivers two different storylines that I knew would ultimately come together—and didn’t they!!

The Killing Game was a game for a very disturbed individual who thought themselves better than everyone around them and Andi found herself getting closer to this killer, not knowing the end game would include her.

I also loved the role Luke played, as Andi’s protector, and although a little contrived by Andi herself, he does play an important part in the end.

A good read that kept me guessing until the end.
