My Thoughts on A Game of Greed and Deception

A Game of Greed and Deception started off quickly. There was a lot of forced dialogue in the beginning. It just didn’t seem natural, and I almost put the book down there.

Once the action started the dialogue got a little better. The events started moving along smoothly. I was worried that the direction it was taking would be too obvious. You know within the first few pages that Tammy is planning to kill her wealthy husband. Luckily, that’s isn’t the end of the story.

After that the story picked up. I enjoyed the creativity that the author used to expand upon the over used trope. He also created one of the most dislikable characters that I have ever experienced. Tammy was absolutely horrible. I definitely wanted her to get caught.

I also really enjoyed the setting. The whole story took place in a cabin set in a snowy mountain. It felt isolated and sinister. To me, the atmosphere was reminiscent of The Shining.

All in All, it was an entertaining read.

My Rating: 3/5
