Overview

The wet sheet slipped slowly from her face and she began to count. There were eleven, in all. She was last in line, but he was getting closer. He’d be to her soon...

As though stumbling out of a nightmare, rookie cop Alex Kincaid awakens in her car, dazed and confused. Parked on an unfamiliar street, she's outside an unfamiliar home with no recollection of how she got there, and no memory of the night before.

Then her nightmare becomes reality. Alex's first call of the day takes her to the same street, to the same house, where a man has been brutally killed. Alex thinks the man is a perfect stranger—until she finds herself the main suspect in his murder. And now, as she races to clear her name, she’s haunted by memories of a horrific thirty-year-old crime—a crime that links her to the dead man...and marks her as the killer’s next target.

"Hits you like a shock of ice-cold water and chills you to the bone." ~New York Times bestselling author Michael Prescott

"...a horrifying journey through a cunning, diabolical mind. The level of suspense [is] almost unbearable...Not for the faint of heart." ~Piedmont Post

    Breathtaking

    Wow, this book is AMAZING. I was totally 'into' it from the very beginning and hated to put it down. There are so many twists and turns in this book and they each caught me by surprise. At one point, I even had to turn on the overhead light in my room because I got a bit spooked. Plus, being a Bay Area resident really brought this mystery to life because I was familiar with all the surroundings. I can't wait to read the next thriller by Danielle. Keep 'em coming.

    strong police procedural

    When she awakens Berkeley rookie police officer Alex Kincaid wonders if she somehow sleep-drove to Yolo Avenue because she is currently in her car not near her home. An insomniac under medicine, Alex races to work bewildered by what happened to her last night. She and her partner Greg Roback soon receive a call to investigate a situation on Yolo Avenue right where she slept last evening. When they arrive, the two cops find murdered attorney William Loefler. <P>Greg finds Alex¿s earring on the crime scene floor, thinks it just fell off, and returns it to her. However, other evidence mounts that shows Alex was at the scene of the crime around the time the murder occurred. Alex is shocked because he is a stranger who happened to call her name that afternoon before he was killed. Now she must solve a case in which she is the prime suspect. <P> RUTHLESS GAME is a strong police procedural starring an intrepid but clearly bewildered heroine, who cannot remember the night before because of a prescription drug. The story line is fast-paced yet builds to an exciting climax by allowing the police to do their job. Readers will want more novels starring Alex, as Danielle Girard knows how to keep the suspense so high the audience never leaves until the book is finished. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Good read

    I liked the twists and turns and the not knowing who the bad guy was until the end. Parts of the story were a little unbelieveable but still a good read.

    Good read.

    A good read. I almost gave it 5 stars. But it seemed to end too fast, in that it wrapped up and ended and felt like there should have been more to it. I don't want to give away anything by saying more.
    But overall a good read. I enjoyed it.
