AMANDA WRITES REVIEW OF: DEAD MEN PLAY THE GAME
DEAD MEN PLAY THE GAME by Jacqui Jacoby is a good, entertaining read. It tells the story of Ian Stuart, a barman with secrets and skeletons hiding in the closet and Ashley Barrow, a detective who stumbles into Ian’s world solving a tough case, when she is propelled in to the centre of an ensuing battle when Ian’s enemies comes to get him.
What would be Ashley’s response when she learns of Ian’s secret?
PERSONAL NOTE: I am not much of a fan of this genre but to my disbelief I read this story in two sittings. I bugged me to know what will happen next, so I kept turning the pages. What would Ashley’s reaction be? Would Ian be able to protect her? Would Ian’s secret chase her away? This is my first time reading Jacqui Jacoby’s work, I think (I’ve read many books) and I must say she has surprised me with her sharp, intense and sometimes schmaltzy writing.
I anticipate reading her future works.
DEAD MEN PLAY THE GAME: For a hundred years Ian Stuart has fought against the monster controlling his life, living as a human among humans with his four friends: Travis, Jason, Quinn and Evan. He wanted his personal loneliness to go away. Detective Ashley Barrow is working the worst murder case in Davenport, Oregon’s history. She wants a drink, she wants some quiet and she walks in to sit on the stool in Ian Stuart’s pub.
