Red Rover, Perdition Games
Red Rover is the third installment of the Perdition Games series by L.E.Fraser. Although I have not read the other books by this author, I will certainly be searching them out now. This book hits the ground running and does not stop, even when it reaches its chilling finale. It is full of espionage and intrigue with technological, psychological, and legal terminology that will keep the reader guessing at every breath-taking turn. I could not put this book down.
Red Rover is a children’s game, which like adult mind games, can traumatize the players. Fair play is unheard of as far as this story is concerned. Reece Hash was a policeman who is now working with his partner, Sam McNamara, as a PI while Sam is still at school working towards her PhD. A close childhood friend of Sam’s commits suicide, so while reeling from the aftermath, they are hired by another from her close group of friends – psychiatrist and renowned author Roger Peterson – after the husband of Roger’s lover is murdered.
This book has a gripping storyline that does not allow the reader to breath and relax for one second. The characters are so believable, you could almost walk into any home and find them sitting there. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to all crime lovers, as the story and its execution are so breathtakingly brilliant.
