Dangerous Games by Michael Prescott

Maverick FBI special agent Tess McCallum (nicknamed “Super Fed” by an adoring media, the central investigator in previous novel Next Victim ) is back, and she has got a new partner—one she does not want and does not trust. She is chasing a vicious kidnapper known as the “Rain Man,” who leaves his victims chained up in a vast storm drain system underneath Los Angeles, doomed to drown unless their ransom is paid on time, and only by the City of Los Angeles, to his off‑shore bank account. A freelance security agent named Abby Sinclair, who specializes in putting stalkers behind bars, often by extra‑legal means, has already had her hooks in the case for a while and is working for a woman who may have been targeted—and who does not trust the authorities to protect her. Since a rainstorm has already started, the time available to save a woman’s life is very brief—and there are already two dead victims to demonstrate the high cost of making mistakes or even just being too slow to act. Only by working together can the two investigators piece together the clues to help them figure out who (and maybe even how many people) the killer really is. Nail‑biting suspense, unexpected story twists, and surprise piled upon surprise all work together to deliver an irresistible read and an incredible page‑turner of a story.

While most people take shelter from torrential rain, the assailant rejoices when storms hit Los Angeles. This unknown culprit has used the heavy rains as a tool in dangerous ransom plots. He abducts a victim, incarcerates them in the vast sewage system beneath the city, and if not paid leaves them to die. The media dubs this vicious murderer the Rain Man as the city is gripped by the gloomy storm clouds he has caused.............................. As the forecast calls for new storms, the FBI assigns Agent Tess McCallum (see NEXT VICTIM) to stop the killer before he kills again. Madeline Grant reaches Tess by calling the hot line set up to get tips on Rain Man. She insists that he is an obsessed stalker named William Kolb. Madeline sends private investigator Abby Sinclair (see THE SHADOW HUNTER) whose job is to stalk stalkers to meet Tess. Though both are lone rangers, Tess and Abby reluctantly team up as the forecast calls for stormy weather and the Rain Man has his next victim kidnapped........................... DANGEROUS GAMES is a fabulous psychological suspense thriller that starts at a high frenzy of excitement and action, turns even more tense, and climaxes with a fantastic confrontation. The pairing of two stars from Michael Prescott books is fun to follow as both females have so much alpha testosterone it is amazing that they don¿t kill each other before they take on the Rain Man, a cunning deadly killer playing cat and mouse with his opponents under city inside his favorite local, the drainage system. Readers will appreciate this powerful tale that will send the audience seeking previous solo appearances from this dynamic distaff duet........................... Harriet Klausner

Ive read a number of Prescott's books and i think this one left me a little disappointed. The story line was a little predictable and I figured out the bad guy pretty early into the book. Unlike some of his other books and even though many of the characters have been introduced to us in an earlier book, I found a real lacking in character deveopment, and some charcters were newly introdued without much thought or significance to the story, it seemed to me. I'm set to read two more of his books, but I hope they are a little less predictable and/or formulaic. Also, I think he's got to work on coming up with more creative titles to his books...just a side note there
