Featured Author – Jacqui Jacoby + Giveaway

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.           

4/5 Stars

  2. I can so relate to the two-sittings/page-turning comment! I’ve read a lot of Jacqui’s work — and lost many, many hours sleep because of it! Looking forward to cracking open my copy of *Dead Men Play the Game* this weekend.
