Deliberately leads the reader into a Pandora's Box, creating a paradoxical effect that is most imaginative and rare........

Usually I don't like vampire stories, their trite and Susanne Leist's "The Dead Game" is like a scavenger hunt with a twist of the board game "Clue". Every character is like a chess piece and just when you think you've got checkmate, you realize the game isn't over yet. Leist has added a refreshing twist with this with a lot of plot twists which prolongs the suspense aspect which keeps the intrigue intense. It's like Hollywood story meets "The Munsters." Starting with the haunted house deliberately leads the reader into a Pandora's Box, creating a paradoxical effect that is most imaginative and rare. Very creative!
