I’m obviously an addict. Christine Feehan’s books are like crack for me. I know what’s going to happen. I know what her heroes are like. I know there’s going to be a happy ending, and in her ‘GhostWalkers’ series I know there will be violence…and justice. So why do I keep reading them? Because she manages to pull me into the minds of both the hero (and he’s always deliciously tortured!) and the heroine. I become attached to them and can’t stop reading until I see IN PRINT that they’re together, safe, and happy. “Murder Game” was no exception. In fact, I think this just might be her best GhostWalker book yet.
Kadan is the GhostWalker they call Bishop. His team is pretty sure he has ice water in his veins and he NEVER let’s anything rock his calm. When the GhostWalkers come under suspicion of a series of murders, he’s given a secret assignment to either clear their name, or find the guilty ones and eliminate them. He needs someone who can ‘read’ objects and Tansy is that person. She’ll help him, voluntarily or not. He tracks her to the mountains where she’s photographing mountain lions and it only takes two minutes for him to realize that she’s the woman he was genetically matched to. This iceman is about to suffer a heat wave!
Tansy has always been different. As a child of 13 she began using her abilities to help track serial killers. It got harder and harder to pull back from the memories and her last case almost drove her insane. So after a long stint in the psych hospital, she put out the word that she had lost her abilities. She’s found a career she can practice away from people, in the wild, but always alone. Then her world is invaded and torn apart by a harsh-looking man whose abilities are just as strange as hers. The story he tells her is horrifying, and ends up hitting way too close to home. And he wants, no demands, her help to stop a gang of serial killers directed by a man with no conscious…and no intention of stopping. And now this director is looking for her.
I couldn’t put “Murder Game” down. Kaden’s meltdown was riveting and pulled my emotions every which way. If you’re a Feehan fan, don’t miss this book.
