The editors noted:
For fans of Squid Game and Criminal Minds, bestselling author Isabella Maldonado delivers the first book in a new series, featuring Daniela “Dani” Vega, an FBI agent whose life is on the line as she’s forced to crack codes and solve clues in a killer’s game. Maldonado drops twists just as fast as she drops bodies.
Dani witnesses a murder on the streets of New York. When she finally catches the assassin, hired hit man Gustavo Toro, the FBI cuts a deal with him to bring Dani undercover and behind the scenes of a conspiracy that runs deeper than they imagined—one run by Nemesis. When Dani and Toro, along with a network of hit men, are lured to a top-secret location, Dani must survive a series of deadly puzzles and keep her true identity a secret.
A Killer’s Game is a high-octane thriller set in an escape room filled with lethal tasks. This book has the definition of an intricate plot line. I was on the edge of my seat trying to unravel the multifaceted characters and motives.
