So I have to say… I’ve been a reading machine. Still took me a little longer to read this than expected but I’m making due especially being on the sick side and constantly battling some stupid headaches. I digress…
I’ve noticed since reading Dead Run, she has a common scenerio for at least one of the characters. They are always cops turned civilians, that always… ALWAYS end up doing “cop work” because the real cops can’t do it like they can.
Another common scenerio is the two unlikely pair always end up together. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. It’s nice to know that the guy gets the girl and the other way around, but again so far, it’s been the same for this book as the last. Each “main” character [the unlikely pair] always have past issues. Always something they blame themselves for [duh they wouldn’t be past issues if they didn’t blame themselves] and it always involved them while they were on the job.
Otherwise, again, I liked this book. Erica Spindler has surprised me once again with her roller coaster of who dun it. Now… it could just be that I’m completely dull and should have seen it coming, and for some parts I thought to myself, “I knew it!” But overall, it was another good read. I like reading crime novels. It’s like watching one of my lame tv shows… even though everyone knows Criminal Minds is no where near lame.
When a friend is found brutally murdered in her new Orleans apartment, former homicide detective Stacy Killian has reason to believe her death is related to the cultish fantasy role-playing game White Rabbit. The game is dark, violent–and addictive
As a former member of the Dallas police force, Stacy was exposed to more than her share of the horrors of crime. Moving to New Orleans was her attempt to pursue a quieter life. But her friend’s murder plunges her back into the role that she fled–especially after she meets Spencer Malone, the homicide detective assigned to the murder case. Stacy doubts the overconfident rookie is up to the task and vows to track down the killer herself.
Her investigation draws her into the privileged circle of White Rabbit’s brilliant creator, Leo Noble., a man with many dark secrets in his past…a man whose life has the same frightening surreal quality of the game he invented.
As the bodies mount and the game is taken to the next level, Stacy and Spencer are forced to work together. Soon they are trapped in the terrifying world of a game gone made where Leo Noble and all the people around him are suspect, cryptic notes foretell the next victim and no one–no one–is safe.
Because White Rabbit is more than a game. It’s more real than life and death. And anyone can die before the final moment when the game is over…and killer takes all. [BarnesandNoble.com, paperback $7.99, Nook Book $5.97]
Now I promise that the next post won’t be a book review… unless I read through my next book like a mad woman. Nothing in particular has been happening but some events have presented themselves that might value a blog post tomorrow. We shall see.
