As part of their book tour for The Devil’s Game, I have authors S. L. Pierce and Maren Kaye here today to talk about the setting of their book.
Do you have a favorite city? A place you have been or that you’ve dreamed of going? I believe most people do. I do. My favorite is Chicago. I’ve only been twice, but both times were fantastic. I lived near San Francisco and I wonder if being able to see it anytime I wanted to took some of the shine away. Would I feel the same way if I lived near Chicago? I don’t think so but you never know.
Let us introduce ourselves; S.L. Pierce and Maren Kaye. We are the authors of a psychological thriller, The Devil’s Game. Maren and I took a little different approach when writing this book. We didn’t specify the city in which the story takes place. We leave it to you to imagine your favorite city. Maybe our main character, Rachel’s favorite coffee place is just like that cool one you went to on that one trip to Seattle with your girlfriends. Or maybe her apartment is like the one your sister lived in when she was in college and your parents let you go on your first trip alone to visit her.
Or maybe we just didn’t want to ruin a great city with this chilling story. A stalker? A psycho? Not in my Chicago! Not in my Seattle! And I certainly do not want to imagine a scenario as twisted as a stalker stalking a stalker. That’s right. A stalker with a stalker. Is that even possible? Doesn’t that make the stalker my friend? Like the enemy of my enemy…I suppose you will just have to read The Devil’s Game to find out.
A book set in a city that is never named? That sounds very intriguing.
Is a stranger who stalks your stalker a friend or your worst enemy?
Rachel Pendelton is determined to break from her small town past and stake out a new life for herself with a dream job in the big city. But hard work and determination are no match for whoever is working against her. When anonymous gifts show up, she’s flattered. When they appear in her locked apartment, she starts worrying. What can she do when everyone she turns to for help looks suspicious?
What she doesn’t know is that a game has begun. A game with rules as baffling as they are deadly. A game that will pit her against the criminally insane. And only one can finish alive.
