This is the third novel I've read in the Emily Stone series. I never read them in order; in fact, I read the first one, the last one, and then this one. I didn't get lost in the story line. Chase provides enough background information that you are pulled along effortlessly.

I love the fact Chase has short chapters, but she also leaves you with a hunger to keep on reading. Before you know it you've read a lot.

Chase also has a way of taking you through the investigative process--you can tell she possesses the real life expertise--of the crime scene. There are some graphic scenes (as in all the Stone series novels) that immerse you all too well into what the characters are seeing, smelling, and feeling.

She has incorporated a dash of romance in the series, giving it a bit of a softer edge, but don't take this as meaning it's a mushy read. None of them are! Surprisingly for the number of high action, sequenced scenes at times, Chase still manages to let her readers "catch their breath" even though their fingers are reaching for the button on their Kindle to advance the page.

Highly recommend the Emily Stone series for lovers of police procedurals and a brilliant storyteller.

3.5 Stars- I Liked It

"Dead Game: An Emily Stone novel" was a fast read.

Immediately upon the first few pages, we are thrust into Emily's life as a secret detective. She is a "lost" prior detective who slipped through the system when she was marked as deceased, and she remained to be listed as so. Now, she is solving child predator and abduction cases on her own, with the help of her lover and also retired detective Rick. With the two of them together, they make for an unbeatable, and undefeated team. They solve the crimes and catch the child killers, most times before it's too late.

Then, we are switched to another angle in the book. We start to follow some serial killers as they are using an internet game to track and choose their next victims. The killers are dilusional and sick-minded and want nothing but to see ordinary and extraordinary people alike, with their lives drained from their bodies- their voices pleading for life.

The third angle is from the detectives' point of view. They are receiving these anonymous emails from the "secret detectives" where they are solving cases that were long since "closed". And the detectives are aware of the internet-based killings, but don't know where to start finding clues on how to solve the murders.

Until they have Emily and Rick on their sides.

This book takes place over the course of about two weeks. The story was so fast paced, so that means that the serial killers had time to profile their victims, stake them out, and kill them (when no one else was around to witness) all within a day or two each victim.

There are a few murders scored in this novel, but each only last one or two pages.

I was pleased to receive the notice in the mail from Jennifer Chase that her second book, Dead Game, had been published! Having read her first Emily Stone novel, Compulsion, I was immediately involved with the main character. But her second book, Dead Game, shows not only Chase's growing expertise as a serious writer, but by partnering Emily with a wonderful male lead/romantic interest, Rick Lopez, she has expanded the potential for a series that I predict will only get better and better!

Emily Stone developed a compulsion--she tracks child victims of pedophiles, kidnappers or others out to harm children. Her resources have been so well developed that she is always way ahead in any investigation and normally has determined the location of the child and submitted everything needed by the police so that they can quickly work to close the case and return the child home.

But this time, Emily's compulsion to help children is set aside as Rick needed her support when Milt, a long-time friend and mentor was killed, apparently as a result of some type of private investigation he was making concerning serial killers.

But this serial killer is like no other--he does not participate, he only watches the victims as they die...over and over and over...

Two young men, who had been like sons to Milt, both wanted to help find out what had happened. An amusing sidebar to the primary story is that one of them, Jordan, becomes interested in Emily while jealous Rick hovers. This reader hopes that Jordan comes back as a regular character, not only because of the personal relationships, but because of who and what he was at the beginning of the story!

There is not one dull moment in this second book of the series. Emily continues her hunt for child predators, but not alone. Rick Lopez, former county detective, has become her partner and they work well together -- on and off the job. But the pursuits are sidetracked by an organization formed on the internet of serial killers. This endeavor is a physical and mental challenge for them both. At one point, Emily becomes embroiled in fear, hatred, and revenge. She feels she has the strength of an Amazon woman. This is a must read for those who want high action in their crime thrillers. An amazingly, talented author.
