Publisher's Summary

A new psychological thriller from H. E. Joyce.

Following a horrific trauma, Laura takes her young son, Jody, and escapes to the small town of Brooksville, Maine. Her quest for a peaceful life, removed of sorrow and loss proves to be fruitful when she meets and falls in love with a local attorney.

With layers of heartache and remorse to contend with, Laura struggles to keep her sordid past in the past. She soon realizes that everyone has a past, including the new man in her life. New worries abound, causing her to question the new life she thought she wanted.

Trying to make sense of her dark, new world, she hires a private detective that uncovers secrets so sinister and a past so riddled with danger that Laura is left to make hard choices in order to protect those she holds dear.

    "The deadliest game"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I love psychological thrillers and 'The Deadliest Game', is right up there with the best of them. The story begins when widowed Laura and her son Jody move to a small town in Maine and meet up with the towns lawyer Michael. The story moves along with the readers expect from thrillers and the twists and turns of the plot hold the reader in suspense until the last page

    "Psychological Thriller"

    The Deadliest Game was a fairly standard psychological thriller that I could imagine would be perfect for making into a film.

    I liked the main character Laura, a women who had suffered significant trauma in her life but will still able to stand up for herself when required.

    It took me a while to get used to the narrator and I did have to speed it up in order to enjoy the performance, however I find that pretty standard for me these days.

    "Not my favorite mystery novel."

    I was not really satisfied with this book. I feel like it would have been much better if the perspective had stayed with Laura instead of switching between the characters. The switching gave away the ending and ruining the twists. The characters didn't felt very underdeveloped and only slightly concerned with the events during the storm.

    Susan Eichhorn Young did a decent job with the narration. The pace was really good, but the non-character dialogue was monotone and lacked the necessary inflections.

    Not my favorite mystery novel.

    **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**
