It begins as a mission to protect a politician from an assassination threat. But the operation takes an unexpected turn when Mari, a mysteriously beautiful GhostWalker, is taken hostage. At the same time, Ken Norton, expert assassin and himself a GhostWalker warrior, is on a mission of his own-one that reaches into Mari's own past. No stranger to the ways of violent warfare, Mari must join forces with Ken and trust his every move-each one more intimate than the last.
Christine Feehan is always good, so I still enjoyed the book. However, with Deadly Game I felt like I was reading the same paragraph over and over and over again. The narrative was a constant rehash of the two main characters' fears about how their past might affect a relationship. Over and over and . . . well you get the idea. But, if you just skim some of those paragraphs it's still a good Ghost Walker installment. If you are new to the Ghost Walker series, you will want to start at the beginning. These books do not stand alone. See the author's website for reading order.
