Review: The Killing Game

Book Review: The Killing Game, by Toni Anderson, 4 stars


Wildlife biologist Axelle Dehn isn’t about to let anyone harm her endangered snow leopards—not the poacher intent on killing them, nor the soldier who wants to use them as bait. But Axelle is unknowingly entangled in a conflict that stretches back three decades, a conflict that could spark a war between two of the world’s great nations.
​British SAS soldier, Ty Dempsey, is on a mission to hunt down an infamous Russian terrorist in a remote region of Afghanistan. Dempsey hasn’t failed a mission yet, but when Axelle is kidnapped by the Russian, he is forced to choose between duty and his heart. He risks everything to save the determined, prickly woman he’s fallen for, but in doing so sparks a deadly series of events that threaten to expose the most successful spy in history. A spy who will destroy anyone who gets in his way.

Genre: romantic suspense

Publication date: March 2013

Mature content: yes

Review: Another great romantic suspense story by Toni Anderson, this one with a bit more emphasis on the suspense than the romance. I found The Killing Game harder to get into than some of Tomi Anderson's other books, mostly because there are lots of different characters and because the flashbacks into the past are slightly disconcerting at first. Once the pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place, though, you realize how well the plot was crafted, with cleverly disguised clues thrown in from the beginning.

I'm rating it with four stars instead of five precisely because the deviously complicated plot makes The Killing Game harder to read, at least at first glance. The second half of the book is much more fast paced, especially as it rushes towards the end.

If you love a good suspense/espionage book with a touch of romance, you should not miss The Killing Game.

Happy Monday,
