Summary

The Count and Bonnie played their game of love, lust, and power to the very limits of fantasy. When the fantasy became real, however, and the number of players grew, the sedate town of Rawley was shaken to its very roots: because when you lost the Game, you lost everything.

Critic reviews

"Unusual, ingenious, and as fascinating as a poisonous snake." ( Sunday Telegraph
"By literary standards and by mounting tensions [this book] is a treat." ( The New York Times Book Review)
"A brilliant combination of pyschological and police-procedural elements, with pure horror at its core." (Ross Macdonald)
