Wicked Game is collaboration by two very talented authors who happen to be sisters, Lisa Jackson and Nancy Bush. The mystery is tightly plotted and kept me clueless and in suspense until the exciting conclusion. While Wicked Game is long at almost 500 pages, it is written very well and I enjoyed every word. There are plenty of red herrings to keep the reader guessing who the bad guy really is. Overall, I greatly enjoyed this romantic suspense novel and would definitely recommend it to readers who enjoy a fast paced thriller that will keep them riveted.
