Reviewed by Sefina Hawke for Readers' Favorite

Red Rover, Perdition Games by L.E. Fraser is a fast paced novel that lives up to its subtitle: “Death is the prize in a twisted game.” Red Rover, Perdition Games truly begins with the death of an ex-football player and the suicide of a National Ballet dancer, with Dr. Roger Peterson at the center of both deaths. Dr. Roger Peterson is a bestselling author who is also a well-known psychiatrist, and a childhood friend of PI Samantha McNamara. Toronto PI Samantha McNamara tries to see her former friend as the innocent party, but as more and more facts come to light, she finds it harder and harder to trust in Peterson's innocence. Red Rover, Perdition Games would appeal to readers who enjoy fast paced fiction with a terrifying killer.

Move over The Following, Criminal Minds, NCIS, and Blue Bloods - there is a new PI in town and her name is Samantha McNamara. Samantha McNamara is a character that I sympathized with. She needed to find out how the deaths were connected, but she did not want to think the worst of Dr. Roger Peterson. Yet when push came to shove, she stepped up and faced a terrifying killer, with only her fiancé, Reece Hash, at her side. The pair made quite a team and it was interesting to see how their romance affected their professional lives. I really enjoyed the whole “trust no one and stay alive” aspect of Red Rover, Perdition Games by L.E. Fraser as it kept me guessing as to what was going to happen next.
