Simon Says: Perdition Games
L.E. Fraser, author

Joining a cult is easy, getting out alive is another story. Two years after the disappearance of sixteen-year-old Amanda Reid, the family’s wealthy matriarch hires a Toronto PI to find her daughter. But as the family’s sinister tapestry unravels, someone will do anything to keep the truth hidden.

Reviews
Joseph Hirsch, Author of Veterans' Affairs

This is a solid debut for Fraser. The plot, in brief: A frigid matriarch and her henpecked husband live in the Canadian countryside. The couple are well-off, with one daughter who is a successful novelist, and another daughter with a penchant for religious fundamentalism, the latter of whom disappeared a couple of years back.

Enter Detective Sam McNamara, a tough female P.I., who is freshly returned from a headline-grabbing case involving a serial killer called "Incubus." She is hired by the father of the disappeared girl (and she is likewise despised by his wife), and her investigation leads her down a dark path, to a foreboding sanctuary where bodies and secrets are buried in abundance.

This is a deftly plotted novel that kept me reading and guessing until the end. My only gripe (and it's a minor one) is that the cast is a smidgen too large, especially re: a subplot about a suicidal musician. That's an ecumenical complaint, however, and, without giving anything more away, I was excited to discover at the end of the novel that a sequel is almost certainly assured.—Joseph Hirsch, Author of Veterans’ Affairs
