Father issues. So many of us have them, and infamous, inhumane, and insane fathers are the stuff of legend. So, here we meet little Samantha, a young girl who finds herself in foster care, in a good home with a father whom she loves and who loves her back. But this hopeful beginning will not last, as a cruel father figure with sinister plans whisks her away. Over the course of many years, Samantha is trained to become a single-minded assassin. With no hope of escape, she grows into a young woman whose deadly instincts have been honed to perfection. In one night, the family she knows has been sadistically murdered and her younger sister, Lindsey has been kidnapped. Samantha finds herself in the hospital, badly wounded, but determined to escape. She meets Dr. Gregory Ryan, who helps her to establish a new identity. But Samantha, known to her evil father as “Blackjack” begins the long journey to defeat horrific and far-reaching plans of world dominion.
Full of twists, turns, car chases, and violence, Childhood Games is as intriguing as a game of chess. When Blackjack hears of her father’s far-fetched ideas to train children from youth through adulthood to insinuate themselves into the U.S. political system, she becomes determined to resist him on every level. The story line for Childhood Games isn’t new. We’ve read about, and seen, action movies of this genre before. But author J.M. Roach is a detailed story teller who engages the reader with adventure and intrigue.Thumbs up to Roach for an adventure tale with an interesting story line.
