The Killing Game is a romantic mystery novel by Nancy Bush.
There is a twisted serial killer who has invented a game of killing beautiful women with the name of birds. Andi Wren seems to be the killers next victim. She is recently widowed and due to that is the majority owner of her late husband’s company. In come her in-laws who resent the fact that she owns most of the shares of the company. When she starts get threatening notes she turns for help to Luke Denton, former cop, now private investigator.
There are two plots going on simultaneously. The other plot involves Detective Stephanie Rafferty, who is trying to identify the skeletal remains found in a basement of a house. The plots did come together though at times it was difficult to follow so many characters.
With so many characters there is no lack of suspects with motive to kill Andi and I was not able to figure out who really the killer was. It caught me by surprise. Overall I would give it 3 ½ stars and I am sure people who like romantic suspense genre will love it
Many thanks to the publisher & NetGalley for this advance reader copy in exchange for my honest and fair review.
