New Nagler news: A GAME CALLED DEAD now an audiobook

I am celebrating the release of the Audiobook version of  A GAME CALLED DEAD, the second  book in the four-book, award-winning Frank Nagler Mystery series.

Thanks to IMZADI PUBLISHING for expanding the offerings of the Nagler series  and to DANE PETERSEN for a fabulous reading.

Dane read THE RED HAND, the prequel to the Nagler series. In that book Ironton N.J. Detective Frank Nagler was in his early 20s and dealing with the  illness of his wife Martha, and a serial killer, his first  big case.

A GAME CALLED DEAD takes place twenty years later than The Red Hand, and Dane deftly  has aged Nagler, whose voice now reflects the weariness that has settled on his soul.

A GAME CALLED DEAD also reintroduces some favorite characters from the first book in the series, The Swamps of Jersey: Nagler’s companion, Lauren Fox, and reporter Jimmy Dawson.  

Nagler’s friend from The Red Hand, Leonard, the blind bookstore owner, also returns.

New to the series, and who has become a favorite, is Sgt.  Maria Ramirez,  a non-nonsense compassionate cop who steers Nagler back to the center at times.

A GAME CALLED DEAD is about the terror campaign of an Internet terrorist who turned a video game into a real-life killing spree. It seems that no one at the local state college or in Ironton itself is safe from the terrorist.

It  is a thrilling tale  revenge, murder and intrigue.

Sample comments:

“The character development was rich enough to make Detective Nagler come to life and made it easy to buy in to the storyline of two college girls in New Jersey being murdered in their dorm. The writer incorporates abundant detail in a way that enriches the plot without burdening the reader. As Nagler works the case, there are some unpredictable conflicts and ironies. As Nagler wondered if he could trust the college administrator, the reader begins to see broader possibilities involving suspects and motives. The book is well written and the more I read, the more engaging it became.”

“Think Dashiell Hammett meets twitter.”
