Book Description

The Deadly Game We Play is the debut novel of Patrick W. Phillips. It is a story of empathy, apathy, violent infatuation, and love. It tells the story of two young detectives as they battle a mad heiress in a world where Tommy guns and trench coats are back in vogue by 2010. Nicholas Constantine is a handsome, dark and brooding sleuth of the kind not seen since the Prohibition Era. Grace Christianson is his unassuming sidekick, or so it seems to him; at the very least, she can throw a knockout left hook or snipe a suspect with ease. Their affections for each other are evident, though strangely neither one can see it. It may have something to do with Nicholas's womanizing or - later - his blind quest for revenge. An already complicated situation spirals into darkness when Natalie H. Abrams falls for Nicholas and weaves a psychotic web of mayhem.

From the Author

The Deadly Game We Play takes place in a world apart.  It is very similar, however, with only minute differences. For instance, for those with connections and enough money, technology we would consider to have come from five years in the future is attainable. Also, the fashion conscious have a retro flair - retro as in the 1930s; fedoras, trench coats, and Tommy guns are all the rage for certain subcultures.
