Invitation to Die (The Killing Game--Book 1) by Jaden Skye

Two women have gone missing in two weeks: the first, found dead, was slashed and dumped in a back alley in Boston. The second was discovered by a child in a Swan Boat Ride. As fear intensifies, Hunter, the head of the FBI Behavioral Unit, calls his star criminal profiler, Tracy Wrenn, to help on the case. Even though she had plans to become engaged that evening, Tracy quickly cancels her plans and rushes to Boston to help.

A beautiful, young professor of criminal psychology, Tracy has become renowned for her success at cracking cases no one else can. With her unusual insights and unique point of view, she is relentless at probing the inner minds of murderers. When a third woman goes missing, and when Tracy finds herself in danger, everything intensifies. In a shocking turn of events, Tracy finds out more not only about the killer, but about herself--and learns that nothing is what is seems.

Book #2 in The Killing Game will be released soon.

I did manage to finish the story hoping it would improve but sadly it did not. The heroine was a egotistical know it all and the other characters were unbelievable . I certainly have no intentions continuing this series. This one poorly written book was enough.

After reading the comments and becoming aware of how awful this book was, I wanted to see it for myself and have a laugh. It did not disappoint. I couldn't even get past the first 10 pages! The prologue was too short and had more plot holes than swiss cheese. Then the first chapter was just a awful read. The audience was sooo enthralled by what the main character was saying even though her "speach" was more like a half hearted attempt to write down some blurb just to take up space. After that I gave up. So, yes this book did not disappoint in being disappointing.

Very poorly edited,way too many mistakes. The dialog was unbelievable and poorly written. I got soooo tired of everybody 'murmurring'. For heaven's sake, use a thesaurus and come up with another word!

After plowing through this nonsense hoping there might be some redeeming qualities it is very apparent why this book was free.

Fast moving and twisty to the end. Good plot.

There were many errors in the story line. For instance in one Hunter, Tracy and the other detective (name starts with a C, and I’m not going to waste time to go look it up) are riding in car with a driver to go see where Tina was dumped. Then it says C turns the corner....what happened to the driver? Also C calls Tracy “Tina” in another place. Too many errors like this to just “interrupted” the story line. But the book was free so I guess you get what you pay for.....

Kind of disappointing. The main characters, Tracy and Hunter, just weren't all that interesting and hard to feel emphathetic for. The protagonist, Tad/Martha, was "cardboard" at best. The author has scored better in many of the other books, but I would not be incluned to read the next installment in the series.

I just started reading this book so can't really comment on the story. But, honestly, there are so many typos that it's not worth continuing the book. Not well written at all. And yes, too much ego in the main character makes her easy to dislike

Really Awful! I am just barely into this book and already I am going to delete it off my Nook. The protagonist is a conceited woman who is, of course, devastatingly attractive (and wears high heels, of course!) and an expert in her field. An expert who relies on intuition and gut feelings. This is NOT how any psychologist thinks/works - and it can only be a layperson who wrote this book (someone stated in a review it was written by a psychologist, I don't think it was). A layperson who thinks studying psychology is a waste of time when "I could do that! It's just common sense!" No. The main character does not think like a psychologist at all. The bad guy, from what I can tell, is a stereotypical "man who had mommy issues because she was cruel to him, so now he kills women" Norman Bates-type of character. Shallow and ignorant character development. Don't waste your time on this book. I am so glad I didn't pay for it.

This book was riddled with grammatical errors, misspelled words and missing punctuation. The writing was childlike. I can't believe this was written by a psychologist. The only good thing I can say about it is that it was free. I would have been really upset if I had paid for it.

I really wanted to like this book. It is the type of book I like - strong main character with good crime story, intrigue, conflict. However it failed completely. The main character doesn't shine in strength or lknowledge, just ego. She can't manage her own basic relationships. Romance is whiny and immature. Killer is obvious to everyone but the brilliant protagonist. Totally lame. I will usually find merit in every book but saw nothing redeeming in this one.
