Rob asks, “Is Deadly Games a stand alone book or part of a serial, do I need to read anything else before it?”
This is a great question and I’m sure one that others have asked, especially if you’ve noticed that there will be a Deadly Games! 2 coming in 2013. That’s just a placeholder title, by the way. The book will have the word “Deadly” in the title, but I have not firmed up the title at this point.
Deadly Games! is a stand-alone novel. You get a complete story in one volume. At the same time, my plan is to have the “Deadly” books continue as we follow Detective John Bartlett and journalist Benjamin West into new thrilling adventures. While sub-plots and other bits will play in the background of each book, the plan is to also make each book a stand-alone thriller in its own right. I do not want to write the words “to be continued” at the end of any of my novels.
So, in my usual long-winded way, I think I’ve answered Rob’s question. Deadly Games! is part of a series, but each book in that series will be a stand-alone thriller. The “Evil” novels will follow a similar pattern. Evil Ways and the upcoming Evil Intent are both billed as a Harold Palmer thriller, but each can be read on their own, although I would hope fans of one would want to read the others.
At least that’s the plan.
They played the most dangerous game of all and death was only the beginning...
Six years ago, Police Detective John Bartlett and journalist Benjamin West were instrumental in the capture of notorious master criminal Darrin Morehouse. Their story played out in the media, rocketing both Bartlett and West into local celebrity status.
Today, Morehouse, still a master game player and manipulator, commits suicide while in prison. His death initiates one final game of survival for the people Morehouse felt wronged him the most. At that top of the list are Bartlett and West, who must set aside their differences to save the lives of Morehouse's other victims and solve one last game before a dead man’s hired killers catch them and his other enemies.
