“Another great story in the Frank Nagler series. After reading the first book, “The Swamps of Jersey”, I was very excited to hear that another one was in the works. I thought the second one was just as good, if not better, than the first. Very much looking forward to the next one!”

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT READ!!!!!!

“Loved “A Game Called Dead”, I was so enthralled I literally could not stop reading until I finished it. I was eager for this book after reading Mr. Daigle’s first book in the series, but now I can’t wait for the next one. Highly recommend both of these books to everyone.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, February 10, 2016
This review is from: A Game Called Dead (Paperback)
I greatly enjoyed the first Frank Nagler story, “Swamps of Jersey.” The writing is superb, settings so vividly portrayed as to be nearly palpable. The plot is engaging and the main character captivating. I was thrilled to learn that a second Frank Nagler story was in the works and couldn’t wait to read it. “A Game Called Dead” didn’t disappoint. Frank Nagler is still intriguing, a man whose sense of morality drives him to soldier on despite his deep personal pain. I may have actually hit on one of the clues well before the book ended which didn’t at all detract from the reading pleasure. The story isn’t so much a “whodunit” as a “why they dun it,” and the wide-ranging effects of the crime. I was rooting for Nagler to solve it because this very private person reveals himself in the how and why of his detective work. The only question I had left when I was finished was “when’s the next Frank Nagler book coming out?”
