Review: Deadly Games by Bobby Nash


Plot Summary From Six years ago, Police Detective John Bartlett and journalist Benjamin West were instrumental in the capture of notorious master criminal Darrin Morehouse. Their story played out in the media, rocketing both Bartlett and West into local celebrity status.

Today, Morehouse, still a master game player and manipulator, commits suicide while in prison. His death initiates one final game of survival for the people Morehouse felt wronged him the most. At that top of the list are Bartlett and West, who must set aside their differences to save the lives of Morehouse’s other victims and solve one last game before a dead man’s hired killers catch them and his other enemies.


I bought Bobby Nash’s newest book, Deadly Games, at the Atlanta Comic Convention and was soon diving headfirst into this thriller. Nash is an expert at creating this overarching tension throughout the novel. The reader knows something is going to happen and every little thing becomes a clue in this puzzle of a thriller.

Nash paints a picture of all of the different people touched by the madman, Darrin Morehouse. He dives into the lives of several different people who are all tied together by a criminal, he manages to give each character a distinctive voice and despite the ‘head-hopping’ from chapter to chapter it’s always clear whose head the reader is in.

My one complaint would be that I wanted to action to last longer. There’s such a build up to the real action that I wanted it be sustained for a longer period of time. The action is so great and gripping that I had trouble putting the book down and I loved the rush of excitement created with the wild game all of the characters play! Not to mention, what a great twist at the end!

If you enjoy wild thrillers that will leave you breathless than Bobby Nash’s Deadly Games is just for you. You can buy Deadly Games here and learn more about Bobby Nash at his website here.

    Thanks for the kind words, Andrea. I’m glad you enjoyed the book. I’m planning a second book with Detective John Bartlett and Benjamin West to begin working on later in the year.
