Let's take a look at Book 1 in this series The Killing Game: The Blood Negotiators
THE KILLING GAME "A seductive story about Corruption, Sin, Lust, and Redemption!"
As the Director of the New York Division of the FBI, Ives Andrich is confronted with investigating the woman he has waited a lifetime to find. Because of her more than accurate novel about an Italian crime lord, the Bureau, against Ives' wishes, asks for her help in infiltrating the inner organization of the nation's most nefarious Mafia don.
When the Bureau’s plan fails and she becomes dangerously entangled in the private life of the nation’s most wanted criminal, Ives’ tolerance for Bureau mishaps vanishes. No holds barred, he puts everything on the line to save the woman he loves in Part One of The Killing Game.
Here are some reader reviews:
The Killing Game - Part One - The Blood Negotiators (The Killing Game Series) (Volume 1) by The Black Rose takes us into the New York division of the FBI. Ives, the Director, must investigate the woman that he has waited a lifetime to find because she wrote a novel that is more than accurate about an Italian crime boss. The FBI takes it upon themselves to recruit her help in getting into the organization of the Mob Boss and then the plan all falls to pieces. When that happens, Ives puts himself on the line for the one woman he loves.
If you want action, adventure, a little mystery and a dash of a love story, then this is the right book for you. I think that The Black Rose is into something with The Killing Game and this makes a thrilling opener to the series. I am personally looking forward to reading the next book in the series. I started this book and had some trouble putting it down once I did; I couldn’t guess when certain turns would happen in the action when reading this one, which I enjoyed. The book is well written with a flow to it that works for the story; the action is well paced throughout. One pitfall to these kinds of books is sometimes too much action at one point and not enough at others, but that doesn’t happen with The Killing Game. I would recommend this book with two thumbs way up. -- Reviewed by Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite
As the Director of the New York Division of the FBI, Ives Andrich is frustrated with the Bureau regarding his investigation of a novelist, Allina Kovar, whose manuscript titled Blood Negotiators is a bit too accurate about Vincent Luca, an Italian crime lord. The Bureau, against Ives' wishes, asks for her help in infiltrating Luca's inner organization. However, the Bureau s plan fails and Allina s life is in danger. Ives s frustration with the Bureau s incompetence reaches its limit. For the sake of the woman he loves, he will risk anything to save her. Written by The Black Rose, The Killing Game is a thrilling crime novel series, with The Blood Negotiators as its first installment. It is a template for what a crime thriller should be, with all the elements laid out in the right scope, including suspense, romance, betrayal and intrigue not forgetting the long-standing wars between the FBI and the mafia.
Protagonist Ives Andrich falls in love with Allina Kovar as soon as he sees her photo; Miss Allina Kovar, you are the woman I will marry. Somehow, I will prove to you that I am worthy of you. The romance aspect of The Killing Game is as strong as the out-and-out roller-coaster ride of suspense and action that The Black Rose has provided for readers to enjoy. The ending promises an exciting continuation in Book Two, The Chase. All in all, this is a thrilling story that will appeal to die-hard crime thriller fans who would be happy to add The Killing Game to their collection and follow the series. --Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite
