The Deadliest Game...
When an old acquaintance calls in a favor, Leopold Blake finds himself unable to refuse - despite his best efforts. A major political conference is hitting Seattle, and presidential hopeful Jack Melendez is fresh out of bodyguards - a problem that Leopold is in a unique position to remedy.
For June Kato, acclaimed neurosurgeon and martial arts expert, a weekend in Seattle was supposed to be the perfect getaway - an opportunity to connect with her new lover on a deeper level and finally enjoy some alone time. But fate, it seems, has other plans.
With all eyes on the Emerald City, Blake and his team soon discover that all is not as it seems. What should have been a simple protection job quickly turns into the weekend from hell, as powerful enemies converge on their position, bent on revenge. But who is the target?
As loyalties are tested and shocking secrets are revealed, Leopold and June find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into an elaborate and deadly trap that will change the course of their lives forever.
Co-written by Kay Hadashi, Ratio is another exhilarating instalment in the Leopold Blake series of thrillers, and in the June Kato Intrigue Series. This book also contains a bonus short story, Divide and Conquer, featuring June Kato.
Interview with the Author
Q - So, what makes the Leopold Blake series special?
A - It's a mix of things, really. When I set out to write these books, I wanted to create something that mirrored exactly the kind of books I like to read. My top picks are usually private detective novels, any of the thousands of thrillers and mysteries best sellers, and, of course, books featuring your classic pulp heroes. Basically, anything with a kick-butt attitude and fast-paced style gets my vote.
The Leopold Blake books are a great mix of these genres. You'll find the series focuses on the mystery and thriller / private detective genre overall, with a couple of financial thrillers thrown in for good measure, some political thrillers, and a serial killer novel or two to keep things interesting!
Overall, the Leopold Blake series is designed to keep you turning the pages - and I've made sure there's never a dull moment.
Q - What order should I read the books in?
A - I've written the series so you can read the books in any order, and all the story threads will tie up nicely by the time you're finished. If you do want to read them in order, I'd suggest the following sequence:
- Paydown (prequel)
- Fallen (coming soon)
Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?
A - Because the Leopold Blake series is a fast, fun, thrill-ride that takes no prisoners! Each of the books has hit the top ten bestsellers list on Kindle for Crime Thrillers, and each have been featured on Amazon's Thrillers 100 Must Reads list - which is no mean feat.
Ultimately, readers who enjoy lightning-fast pacing with a plot that twists and turns all the way to the end will get a kick out of this series.
Q - Can readers get the whole series in one go?
A - Sure. I've put together a few bundles if people want to save a little moolah and grab all the books in one swoop. Check out my author page here at Amazon for more details, and a full list of my available titles.
And thanks for reading!
