Deadly Games indeed. A barman is framed for murdering his married lover and her husband. He attempts to find the real killer with the aid of a journalist. However, somehow the killer knows everything and sends taunting messages meaning that the barman is forever on the run.
This is an exciting rush of a novel packed with constant action, which is sometimes a little too far-fetched but in keeping with this racy style. Witten in an informal manner in the first person, there is no time for character development. Reminds me a lot of films about warped serial killers who draw in their hunters in...yes, deadly games.
The theme is the grey servants, the people who are always there providing things for us, like the bartender, but who remain invisible themselves. Superficially psychological but definitely a thriller, this is a read with increasing tension towards the end and you will have no idea who the murderer is. Recommended if you like fast rides.
