9780966332988: The Killing Game (The Killing Game Series)

As the Director of the New York Division of the FBI, Ives is confronted with investigating the woman he has waited a lifetime to find. Because of her more than accurate novel about an Italian crime lord, the Bureau, against Ives' wishes, asks for her help in infiltrating the inner organization of the nation's most nefarious Mafia don.

When the Bureau's plan fails, and she becomes dangerously entangled in the private life of the nation's most wanted criminal, Ives' tolerance for Bureau mishaps vanishes. No holds barred, he puts everything on the line to save the woman he loves in Part One of The Killing Game.

About the Author:

It's not about me, it's about the words.

Review:

I'm always searching for that book I can't put down, a book that I can't stop reading even though I don't want it to end. For me, that was The Killing Game. A true love story couched in suspense and drama, The Killing Game certainly kept me turning pages. One of the main reasons was its heroine, Allina.

Allina is a female character we don't often see in writing today. She embodies the ultimate in femininity, with living by a code of ethics and a sense of morality that make her all the more alluring. And at the same time, she's incredibly brilliant and brave. She moves seamlessly through a man's world and with every step she takes she defines herself more as a woman. Allina, reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn, is the perfect counterpoint to Ives, head of the New York Division of the FBI, who falls madly in love with her. Her softness and vulnerability pitted against his iron will and determination to protect her at all costs, makes for a great read.

The Killing Game is a wonderful love story and outstanding crime novel all in one. I also loved learning about the internal workings of the FBI. The only thing about reading this book is that now I'm dying to know what happens in Part II. Where is it?! --S. Sacks - Novel Aficionada --S. Sacks - Novel Aficionada

In order to uncover crime, the FBI will occasionally go undercover. After all, what better way is there to make someone talk than to befriend them and convince them that you re on their side? In Ives case, that means befriending the lovely Allina, author of The Blood Negotiators, a woman the FBI is positive knows the crime boss they re looking for. But Ives isn't happy just getting to know Allina; he wants to make her love him as he loves her, and that s where this story takes a turn from adventure and intrigue to romance and mystery. The Killing Game by The Black Rose will keep you breathless as you turn one page after the next.

I was drawn in by the first few pages of this book. The relationship between Allina and Ives is electric and the way the two relate to each other just in those first pages is something that you can almost feel for yourself. I found myself wishing for a relationship like the two of them had and a man who would do anything to protect me, just like Ives. This relationship is definitely a wild ride and there's way more going on behind the scenes than anyone would ever know. I wanted to learn even more about these characters and that's why I'll be looking for the next book as soon as it comes out. The Killing Game is a book you re going to want to read and one where you ll be hanging onto every word.

As the Director of the New York Division of the FBI, Ives Andrich is frustrated with the Bureau regarding his investigation of a novelist, Allina Kovar, whose manuscript titled Blood Negotiators is a bit too accurate about Vincent Luca, an Italian crime lord. The Bureau, against Ives' wishes, asks for her help in infiltrating Luca's inner organization. However, the Bureau's plan fails and Allina s life is in danger. Ives is frustration with the Bureau's incompetence reaches its limit. For the sake of the woman he loves, he will risk anything to save her.

Written by The Black Rose, The Killing Game is a thrilling crime novel series, with The Blood Negotiators as its first installment. It is a template for what a crime thriller should be, with all the elements laid out in the right scope, including suspense, romance, betrayal and intrigue not forgetting the long-standing wars between the FBI and the mafia. Protagonist Ives Andrich falls in love with Allina Kovar as soon as he sees her photo; Miss Allina Kovar, you are the woman I will marry. Somehow, I will prove to you that I am worthy of you. The romance aspect of The Killing Game is as strong as the out-and-out roller-coaster ride of suspense and action that The Black Rose has provided for readers to enjoy. The ending promises an exciting continuation in Book Two, The Chase. All in all, this is a thrilling story that will appeal to die-hard crime thriller fans who would be happy to add The Killing Game to their collection and follow the series. --Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite
