Overview

In a dark Manhattan alley, a young woman suddenly collapses from a brain hemorrhage. The statistics say it’s rare to have happened to someone so young and healthy, yet all signs point to natural causes. But when Kyle Vine, the man she was supposed to meet that night, learns she wasn’t the only victim, he knows there’s something more going on and soon discovers a mysterious link to the sudden success of a journeyman pitcher for the New York Yankees.
As the lethal brain bleeds continue to strike, Kyle and the woman’s eccentric uncle work together to unravel a mystery unlike any the world has ever seen in order to stop a ruthless killer from striking again.
Stephen Paul’s debut supernatural suspense thriller, The Perfect Game, is a fast-paced gripping ride that will continue to keep readers on the edge of their seats while trying to figure out who’s behind the deadly episodes, how they’re doing it and, perhaps most shocking of all, why.

    I love when a book isn't exactly what I expected it to be and this book was wrong in all the right ways. Twists and turns that always seemed to go in the right direction without ever being predictable. Complete, honest, believable characters allow the unbelievable story to seem completely possible.




    Usually a story with a super natural flair is ALL about the super natural but this was so much more. These characters would have been engrossing and engaging and entertaining without anything extra. Kyle isn't a characature of a guy but a real guy. His friends and enemies aren't cartoon sidekicks and villains but real people with their own story that they get to tell and share.




    I love when I find a new author with a new idea. Makes me feel like I'm on the ground floor of something that could be big. If you are looking for something fast, exciting, and different this is it. Enjoy.

    A fascinating whodunnit with a very interesting crime

    Disclaimer: I received an e-copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Kyle is having a rough time right now: he's divorced, he's being sued by the family of a dead former patient, and he's trying to hook up
    with a college student. HIS student. However, something horrible happens to her just as Kyle turns the corner to meet her, and his life
    just keeps going downhill. How did this young woman happen to suffer from a blown aneurysm? And how come she's not the only one?
    Just what is going on here? The answer is quite surprising, and the mystery is just as good as the reward.

    This book definitely grabbed me from the start, even if it was to bash and condemn Kyle for his decisions. As soon as he reached the
    alley, though, the mystery begins, and from that point forward, I was hooked. The story is written very well; it keeps you guessing, and
    it's just elusive enough to give you that false hope that you THINK you've got it all figured out. I will certainly add this author to my watch
    list, and I hope he churns out more thrillers like this one very soon.

    This is a fast paced story filled with suspense that will keep you turning page after page. The premise is very real and you can easily imagine it happening to you. Kyle Vine is a

    professor who allows the exciting potential of a sexual encounter with a leggy blonde student get in the way of common sense. His life is changed because of that decision and he

    ends up being the one who leads the way in trying to find out who is behind a string of possible homicides. Along the way you are given just enough clues to the answer that you

    think you know who is responsible. And then a twist hits you. A good, fast-paced mystery.

    I thought I had a good idea of what I was getting when I began reading this book – and brought with me a certain suspension of belief – however I was wrong. The main character, Kyle, a psychologist who got it tragically wrong with a client and is thus under investigation, who has been divorced by his wealthy wife and now lives in a three story walk-up - isn’t nearly as self-pitying or damaged as one would expect.

    Kyle is flawed, yes, but he has a positive, non-mercenary attitude to life, so when a chance to flirt with a pretty student goes terribly wrong and she ends up in a coma, he doesn’t just thank his luck for having dodged a bullet – but is genuinely ashamed at having encouraged her. His guilt draws him into finding out how she was injured, despite that his involvement could be discovered.

    Kyle’s relationship with his daughter Bree is lovely, so as a reader I didn’t want him to be caught out or blamed when the coma victim’s Uncle Liam decides there is a dangerous killer targeting young people with a weapon that is impossible to detect, or prove, and he needs Kyle to help him.

    For a debut novel this is excellently structured, with engaging characterisation and a plot where the sense of menace and various twists and turns as the story moves into the supernatural are expertly portrayed. The clues are there but never do they slap you in the face. Despite the off-the-wall premise, I found myself believing in how the antagonist was killing his victims without too much of the ‘as if that could happen’ element this might have given.

    I was even left at the end wondering if, at some stage of our evolution, the human mind may just evolve to this level, engendered by the theories Kyle and Liam throw out – for instance that people know on some higher level when they are being stared at – Creepy!

    I can honestly say I’m looking forward to Stephen Paul’s next novel.
