Twists and turns as you follow the hunt for the next victim…….
The Dealer leaves a trail of cards taunting the cops and challenging the professor in this story. While some serial killers want to be found, some really want to be found. The question is, can they find him in time to save more victims?
Plot of Murder Games
A serial killer is loose on the streets of Manhattan. His victims appear to be total strangers. The only clue that links the crimes is the playing card left behind at each scene that hints at the next target.
The killer, known in the tabloids as The Dealer, is baiting cops into a deadly guessing game that has the city increasingly on edge. Elizabeth Needham, the tenacious cop in charge of the case, turns to an unlikely ally – Dylan Reinhart, a brilliant professor whose book turned up in connection with the murders.
As the public frenzy over The Dealer reaches a fever pitch, Dylan and Elizabeth must connect the clues to discover what the victims have in common – before The Dealer runs through his entire deck.
