An FBI agent with a background in cryptography. A brilliant game maker bent on revenge.
A deadly battle of wits and wills ensues in A Killer’s Game, Wall Street Journal bestselling author and Rogue Isabella Maldonado‘s upcoming thriller. Launching June 01, this ingenious thriller, described as “Squid Game meets Criminal Minds,” is now available for preorder at a special, reduced cost. The Real Book Spy has called this first installment in Isabella Maldonado’s new series “one of the most anticipated thrillers of 2023.”
FBI agent and former military codebreaker Daniela “Dani” Vega witnesses a murder on a Manhattan sidewalk. The victim is chief of staff for a powerful New York senator, but in a twist of fate his assassin, Gustavo Toro, becomes Dani’s informant. To take down the mastermind of the complex conspiracy at work, Dani is forced to go undercover, partnering with Toro. Together they must infiltrate the inner circle at a remote facility.
Except it’s a trap. For all of them.
Locked in a subterranean labyrinth and held captive by an unseen host, Dani, Toro, and others must fight for their lives. Now Dani must stay undercover, unravel a bizarre conspiracy, and survive lethal puzzles. But will Toro be friend or foe? Because in this killer’s game, everything is real: the paranoia, the desperation, and the body count. And only one person can make it out alive.
Wall Street Journal bestselling author Isabella Maldonado wore a gun and badge in real life before turning to crime writing. A graduate of the FBI National Academy in Quantico and the first Latina to attain the rank of captain in the Fairfax County Police Department just outside DC, she retired as the Commander of Special Investigations and Forensics. During more than two decades on the force, her assignments included hostage negotiator, department spokesperson, and precinct commander. She uses her law enforcement background to bring a realistic edge to her writing, which includes the bestselling FBI Special Agent Nina Guerrera series (soon to be a Netflix feature film starring Jennifer Lopez) and the award-winning Detective Veranda Cruz series. Her books have been translated into 20 languages.
