Killer Takes All by Erica Spindler

When a friend is found brutally murdered in her new Orleans apartment, former homicide detective Stacy Killian has reason to believe her death is related to the cultish fantasy role-playing game White Rabbit. The game is dark, violent--and addictive

As a former member of the Dallas police force, Stacy was exposed to more than her share of the horrors of crime. Moving to New Orleans was her attempt to pursue a quieter life. But her friend's murder plunges her back into the role that she fled--especially after she meets Spencer Malone, the homicide detective assigned to the murder case. Stacy doubts the overconfident rookie is up to the task and vows to track down the killer herself.

Her investigation draws her into the privileged circle of White Rabbit's brilliant creator, Leo Noble., a man with many dark secrets in his past...a man whose life has the same frightening surreal quality of the game he invented.

As the bodies mount and the game is taken to the next level, Stacy and Spencer are forced to work together. Soon they are trapped in the terrifying world of a game gone made where Leo Noble and all the people around him are suspect, cryptic notes foretell the next victim and no one--no one--is safe.

Because White Rabbit is more than a game. It's more real than life and death. And anyone can die before the final moment when the game is over...and killer takes all.

About the Author

The moment she put pen to paper, Erica knew she had found her true calling. Since that day, Erica has published more than twenty novels. Her titles have been published all over the world and Red was turned into both a wildly popular graphic novel and daytime drama in Japan. Critics have dubbed her stories as "thrill-packed, page turners, white knuckle rides, and edge-of-your-seat whodunits" and The Times Picayune praised 2003's In Silence, calling it "Creepy and compelling; a real page turner."

Erica is a USA TODAY, New York Times extended, Waldenbooks and amazon.com bestseller. In 2002, her novel Bone Cold won the prestigious Daphne du Maurier Award for excellence. An RWA honor roll member, she received a Kiss of Death award for her novel Forbidden Fruit and is a three-time RITA award finalist. In 1999 Publishers Weekly awarded the audio version of her novel Shocking Pink a Listen-Up award, naming it one of the best audio mystery books of 1998. Praised by booksellers as "The best suspense novel I've ever read" and "A perfect 10 out of 10," Erica's 2004 release See Jane Die is the story of a woman who must face her darkest fears when her husband becomes the prime suspect in the brutal murders of two women.

Erica and her husband--a man she describes as funny, handsome and way too sassy--met in art school and have been together ever since. They have two sons, born nine and a half years apart. Erica makes her home in the New Orleans area, although she originally hailed from Illinois.

Erica came to her present home in much the same way she came to writing--fate intervened. She and her husband, thencollege students, traveled to New Orleans to see the King Tut exhibit at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Without advance tickets, they had a choice: wait in line all day or spend the day sightseeing. They chose the latter and fell head-over-heels in love with the city.

Erica is currently at work on her next thriller for MIRA Books.

I devoured this book in 2 days! That's quick for me! It was a suspense filled roller coaster ride to a twist at the end I never saw coming! It is a rare book than can hold my attention for more than a one hour interval. I truly could NOT put this down. I even brought it with me to a movie date that I had made prior to starting the book. I didn't want to flake so I sat in the back with a pen light & continued the journey. If you are not hooked 10 pages in then it is not the right book for you. The characters are fleshed out so well that I cared for them & their survival was important to me. The desire to read ahead to insure a happy ending was very tempting but I refrained & am so glad I did. I recommend this book highly & hope you love it as much as I did.

Usually love Spindler, but this book fell flat. How many times can you change the killer within just a few pages?! D

I really enjoyed this book. Everytime I thought it was ending and the mystery was solved, another twist was revealed. I highly recommend it.

This is my first book done for the new year. It's got plenty of drama, suspense and intrigue. Set in New Orleans, this deals with a serial killer who likes to play role playing games that turn out deadly. Stacy Killian is introduced in this novel, when she meets Spencer Malone, his family and his Aunt Patty. She's been left cryptic notes from the "White Rabbit", putting her life in danger, when she's next on his list. It's up to the NOPD to protect her and stop this "White Rabbit" from killing others. What a rush!

This is the 1st book I read by this author. I loved this book and because of that continued to read more books by Erica Spindler. She does a great job developing characters and the plot.

The book was ok. I felt it had too many characters and too many suspects for all the of the different situations that were going on. I guessed the killer was someone else, but once it got towards the end, I knew who it was and was right. All of the different possibilities and how unsure Stacy was about her guesses got really annoying.
