BOOK REVIEW: Deadly Games by Andrew Hess

✯✦✯✦✯ BOOK REVIEW ✯✦✯✦✯

Book:  Deadly Games
(Detective Thornton Series, Book 1)
Author: Andrew Hess
Genre: Mystery, Thriller & Suspense

My Rating: ★★★★★


Detective James Thornton has always had a way with women. Some say he’s a player. Others call him a man whore. But he’s mostly known as the best detective the Dutchess County P.D. has. 

For years he swore off relationships, fearing his career would put them in danger. That all changed the moment he met Alexa. In one night, she won him over, but in one weekend his world will shatter.

An entertaining intense action thriller!

Deadly Games is a fast-paced suspenseful thriller that involves Detective Thornton and a murder mystery weekend with his newest lover. During the weekend of games, James is thrust into the middle of a murder mystery to solve. What he didn’t plan on was having a weekend with a new lover (Alexa), his ex-girlfriend (Jocelyn) and a murder to solve.

Deadly Games was an intriguing and well-written story.  There were many twists and turns that formed a unique plot. There was a lot of action and suspense with just enough romance to keep my interest perked. Andrew Hess really knows how to build up the suspense and keep your attention to the very end.  The characters were well developed and engaging. This story captivated me and kept my attention. The book has lots of twists and suspense with an ending that you will never expect. Once you finish the book you will want to strangle Andrew Hess for the ending (as normal) however, you will love the book and will anticipate the next book even more.

I have read almost all of Andrew’s books as he is one of my favorite authors. He had a unique writing style. I nicknamed him the Master of Cliffhangers as he keeps to his standard tradition with his surprise and unexpected endings. I love how he can manipulate the book and throw twists in that you will never see coming. I have enjoyed each book I have read by Andrew and will continue to read his books as they come out. You never know what to expect from him and this story holds true to that!

I recommend Deadly Games to anyone that enjoys reading a suspenseful thriller that will keep you entertained all the way to the end while keeping you sitting on the edge of your seat.
