The horror continues
as two reluctant allies
are forced into the fight
of their lives. Picking up after events from The Dying Game, Barton once again throws readers into the mind
of a remorseless killer who is smart and determined. Barton's expertise
as a teller of terrifyingly twisted
tales of suspense is growing

Both P.I. Griffin Powell
and FBI agent Nicole Baxter
suspected that there were two killers
working in tandem on the Beauty Queen, aka "Dying Game" case.
But the case was closed after the
death of one of the killers. That
is, until the second killer, Pudge,
contacts them and tells them he
has started a new game and they
must play along if they are to stop
him. Nic is not thrilled to be forced
to work with Griff, because he's
arrogant and sidesteps proper
procedure. However, as the killer
continues to taunt them with his
kills, she comes to appreciate
Griff's strengths. It will take both
of them to stop this twisted killer,
for the end prize in his "Murder
Game" is Nic herself. (ZEBRA, Feb.,
