New Game

The game is simple–he is the Hunter. They are the Prey. He gives them a chance to escape. To run. To hide. To outsmart him. But eventually, he catches them. And that’s when the game gets really terrifying. . .

New Rules

Private investigator Griffin Powell and FBI agent Nicole Baxter know a lot about serial killers–they took one down together. But this new killer is as sadistic as they’ve ever seen.

But Winner Still Kills All. . .

There’s a new game now, and it’s much more deadly than the first. A brutal psychopath needs a worthy adversary. He won’t stop until he can hunt the most precious prey of all–Nicole. And with his partner in a killer’s sights, Griff is playing for the biggest stakes of his life.

The bickering between Griffin and Nicole started when they investigate the previous case “together”. Nicole dislike him for overstepping his boundaries while Griffin dislike her for always “bashing” the men. But, in this case, they have to investigate together cos the killer strings them into his game. The more time they spent together, the more……….
