Summary

A killer is playing cat and mouse...and winning.

DCI Whitney Walker’s in trouble. She’s threatened with demotion if she screws up another case. So, when a killer starts murdering female students, it’s a chance to redeem herself. 

Forensic psychologist, Dr. Georgina Cavendish, has spent her life inside the university walls, but when one of her students is murdered, she steps out from behind the text books and puts her skills to the test. 

The two headstrong women join forces to stop the killer. But sparks fly when real world policing meets academic theory, and it’s not a pretty sight. 

Deadly Games is the first book in the Cavendish & Walker crime fiction series. If you like serial killer mysteries and psychological intrigue, then you’ll love Sally Rigby’s thrilling listen performed by award-winning narrator Clare Corbett. 

Includes a special bonus note from the author.

Gripping - if predictable

A good listen - binged over two days!

Quirky characters, although the Brummy accent did grate a bit.

Others have mentioned a ‘plot twist’ but I had it pegged halfway through, honest!

I’m hoping that the author has been less obvious, because I will read the next one!

Predictable in parts

It was okay, easy to listen to and thus was helped by Clare’s great narration. The story was a bit cliche and towards the last quarter very predictable, which was a shame really. Finished it anyway due to narrator.

Plodding theme

Slow and sometimes predictable would have like more twists and turns predicted how it would end but no excitement in this book. Wont be reading book two or three.

Absolutely loved it so much so I emailed the author!

Wow fantastic story! In depth descriptions of the main characters but not too much too bore you.
It kept me wanting to listen / turn the pages.
Not too much gore (although I love the forensic details of autopsy etc) but I know for some it can be off putting. This won’t scare anyone!

I knew there were more in the series so I was ready to download another one before I’d even finished this. Low and behold none on Audible - I was horrified and started plotting to email my friend in Barbados to log into her USA Audible and get her to send it to me .... distressed to find none are on Audible. So while my son slept I emailed the Author and begged her to get Claire Corbett to speed read the rest!!! Ha ha I kid you not!!

Absolutely amazed and shocked Sally replied within 90 minutes! How super cool is she? 😎

Fans - Claire C is narrating as we speak and book 2 will be out in Jan 2020. Phew! Panic over 😊

Ps in case you hadn’t realise the gorgeous voices of Claire Corbett make this book come to life and the characters of Whitney & George shine.

It’s about time!


First of all I was so excited when I found out walker and cabinet this we’re going to be on Audible. I love this Siri’s that Sally Rigby has put together so intelligently. Deadly games is intriguing and one you will not be able to put down. I forgot all about how cantankerous it was between Whitney Walker and George Gina Cavendish. This is a great book a great thriller and one any mystery fan would love.

Murder became personal

DEADLY GAMES. By Sally Rigby....# 2
Life for George has been within the halls of the university. Even to her now live in boyfriend hasn’t been to happy taking second place with new students coming in this year, A murder becomes personal for George when she knows the student. DCI Whitney messed up the last case, could she redeem herself, she had to . Her superintendent was giving her once more chance when she was called to the university. It becomes personal for Whitney when her daughter Tiffany is involved. Together they work to figure out about the twisted mind that the killer has of killing students.
First I have read by the author, like the flow, and the woman characters. Showed their flaws and what was motivating them.
Narration by Claire Corbett was superb and added to the story

Brit crime addict

an admitted binge-watcher of British crime police procedurals - this series hit the spot left by a lack of fresh series on Prime and Netflix. Really enjoyed Clare Corbett's performance. Can't wait for more!

It’s just okay

It’s not terrible, it’s not good. It is very predictable but if you’re in the mood for something light than this may be for you. That was not what I was expecting
