The Dead Game by Susanne Leist is a mysterious supernatural thriller with
plenty of twists and turns that is well-written and keeps you turning
the page. From the first page you start a wild ride and just when you
think all is well, she throws in another twist. Rhonda Cratty, Parenting & Education Examiner
was absolutely surprised by this book! I knew it had some enigmatic
mystery and some dark action, but the author set up the story so well I
was happily amazed. It starts with a very engaging character, a young
woman who is very well portrayed in a community, Oasis, Florida. The
town's mysteries are maze-like and become deeper and more sinister as
the book progresses. This is a very original approach to the concept of
vampires and their existence. Ray Miller "Relevant Reviewer"
The Dead Game by Susanne Leist is
a top-notch haunted house horror thriller. The author excels at spooky
descriptions, terrifying scenarios like opening a door and stepping into
a black abyss or forever trapped in a dark maze with endless rooms
stretching into infinity. Her characters are perfect and the reader can
easily connect with them. Simon Okill, Simon's Phantom Blog
A beachfront town, a haunted
mansion, people disappearing or turning up dead--these are the elements
of gothic horror, but this unique novel has a more than a few twists.
The writing is first-rate, and the pace is fast. The characters are
well-defined, and the plot is imaginative and unpredictable... Howard Lipman, pen name PanOrpheus, author
Susanne's take on vampires is fresh and
new but you'll have to read to know. She takes the age old vampire
legend and turns it into something I've never read before... Elle Klass, Author of As Snow Falls

I have been reading murder mysteries and thrillers since I
was a teenager. I've read all types of mysteries, from Agatha Christie
to Sherlock Holmes. In recent years, I've begun to read paranormal
mysteries. These books bring fantasy and the surreal to the simple
murder mystery. It is hard to find books that combine paranormal with
mystery. That is why I decided to write a paranormal, murder mystery of
my own. It is the type of book that I search for and love to read.
My book, The Dead Game, has dead bodies and suspects like a
traditional murder mystery. However, it also has humans, vampires, and
vampire derivatives. And don't forget the haunted house--we must have
one of these.
