I love you Erica Spindler! I don’t know if it is the New Orleans settings, the engaging characters, or the twisty plots that keep me reading her, but I don’t intend to stop.
Spindler’s books really aren’t series, but some of them feature minor characters from previous books that become the main characters in other books. Killer Takes All features one of the Malone brothers, Spencer, and Jane’s sister from See Jane Die, Stacy Killian.
Stacy Killian is an ex-cop from Dallas who has moved to New Orleans for graduate school intending to leave the grueling life of police work behind. But once a cop, always a cop, and when her neighbors are murdered, Stacy makes a commitment to track down Cassie’s killer.
Detective Spencer Malone isn’t exactly thrilled with a civilian’s involvement in his case. However, with no viable leads, Spencer agrees to look into Stacy’s theory that Cassie and her roommate’s death has to do with the role playing game, White Rabbit. Unlike other RPGs, White Rabbit isn’t mainstream and takes it to another level that involves eradicating everyone until there is only one left standing.
Stacy teams up with White Rabbit’s creator, Leo Noble, who has been receiving threatening postcards that pose the game’s characters in gruesome death scenes. Leo, however, innocent as he seems, may know more than he is letting on.
