- The Games We Play
Second Chances are Rare
And Henry Gallagher somehow got two.
Henry used to be the best detective out there. Now he's all washed up after a horrible incident with some people he was investigating.
When the top player of an online game is killed right before the big money tournament, Henry gets one more chance to solve a case and make a comeback.
Oh, yeah. And the sexy police chief was an old fling, but it's unclear if they're enemies, friends, or lovers as they both work to solve the case.
Problem: Henry has never played the game.
And worse: the person that hires him is the prime suspect, the new top player. Henry can't shake the feeling she's as good at playing him as she is at playing the game.
This comedic romance has elements of classic noir detective, cyberpunk, and light bondage/dominance play.
Note: There are heavy video game elements.
