Welcome to the Big Show!

Once a year, the greatest tabletop gamers in the world descend upon Indianapolis for Gen Con -- the Best Four Days in Gaming -- to play games, see friends, and have fun. They play things like Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, Warhammer 40,000, Settlers of Catan, Munchkin, and everything else they can get their hands on. Mostly the competition is friendly.

Sometimes it is not.

When a world-famous game designer turns up murdered at the convention, Liam Parker -- the young game designer who stumbles across the body -- makes it his quest to figure out who killed the man, and why. In the end, Liam must figure out the rules of this most dangerous game fast -- or risk losing his life.

How to Play is the first novel in the Dangerous Games series.

If you are a gamer or a mystery fan you will enjoy this book. It gives a somewhat realistic look behind the curtain at the largest gaming  convention in the world, and shows you some of the "fun" the industry insiders get to have; though not MURDER hopefully ... though  there are always those who might need it. As for its representation of a murder investigation I can not say as i am a laymen on such things, but either way it is a good ride. I am looking forward to the next two books in the series.
