Suzanne Delacroix is one of Atlanta’s top homicide cops, but she is a troubled soul; still disturbed by an attempted rape of her, back in College and the mysterious death of her father, also an Atlanta cop. When she and her partner are called to investigate a brutal, ritualistic murder of two twin teenage girls, something snaps inside of Suzanne and she immediately hands in her resignation from the Atlanta PD. She hasn’t given up on solving what now appears to be a series of murders, involving twins that stretch back over a Century. Still also determined to investigate her father’s mysterious death, she teams up with her Atlanta PD partner to try to get to the bottom of the horrific killings. In Game of Twins, by Mo Robinson, what they uncover is a sordid world of cult-like and ritualistic killing that defies belief. It takes a seemingly unrelated, minor event to finally blast open the entire web of deceit, murder and sexual perversion.
Game of Twins by Mo Robinson, can, at times, be a difficult read, simply because of the depths of depravity and perversion some of the characters in the story sink to, but I felt the author handled these arcs with enough sensitivity to allow most readers to cope with and accept what was happening. As a mystery/thriller, this story does a great job of twisting and turning, as we, the readers try to follow the many connections and coincidences that occur during the story. The main character, Suzanne Delacroix is well-drawn and totally believable as a strong-willed, determined woman who will stop at nothing to discover the truth and rid the world of the evil perversion she finds. The writer’s style is comfortable, easy to read and it is one of those books that you come to the end of and wonder where it all went to. I did appreciate that the author allowed a faint whiff, at the end, for a possible sequel, which is always a smart thing to do. All in all, this is a good murder/mystery, with some particularly nasty and evil content. I am sure many would enjoy it.
