With the statue and card in hand, go back down to the dwarves to make your exit. You may either fight them off or just leave Caesar to his fate. Do as you wish and be on your way. Walk with Zoltan to the shady alley where the deal will go down. He wants the cards and is prepared to kill for them. Zoltan will handle the bandits while you chase Duke down. This chase involves a lot of ladders.
Run after the fiend. The chase is pretty straight forward. In the sewers, follow the openings in the grates and you will come across a couple of drowners. Greetings again from the darkness.

Baxter revisits Trump's Menie Estate development in Aberdeenshire, Scotland and in the process catches up any viewer who missed the first film, while also exploring planned development on the last remaining natural state land in the area. The film's best segment focuses on an unrelated planned development golf and luxury homes in the Heritage area of Dubrovnik in Croatia.
We see the real struggle of the "little guys" as they fight back against corporate greed and civic corruption. The third segment involves New Jersey, and the key point seems to be that Don Trump Jr is every bit as annoying and arrogant as his father. Baxter's film is loosely structured, but certainly raises some interesting points about how the wealthy can abuse their power at the expense of ecology, history, and the huddled masses.
Drought conditions on SRD in Dubrovnik? One of the local farms not quaint enough? We also see the corruption of local leaders and local government. It's especially disheartening in Dubrovnik as the locals gain 11, signatures to force a referendum, only to be steamrolled by the Mayor. The sit down interview with Trump and Baxter is somewhat of a letdown, but it does feature two men who believe strongly in their views.

Not sure if there will be another book with these characters but if there is I probably won't be reading it. Mar 16, Marlene rated it really liked it. In other words, they spend their nights together, but still have two apartments. Kieran is a trouble magnet, and that is what begins this story. Then the woman rushes out the door and is murdered within steps after she gets outside. The baby and the woman, both Jane Does, lead the police and the FBI to the seamy underground world of human trafficking and baby harvesting. And their investigation links to an all too similar five year old cold case.
Not that Craig is ever exactly safe, but he is, at least trained for this. In the end, they manage to cut off the head of this particular snake. And they decide to get married. I have not read the previous books in this series, but I did read Law and Disorder, which seems to be part of a side-series to New York Confidential.
But I think a reader could come into A Dangerous Game without having read any of the previous books. In spite of our problems, the United States is still a country that many people in terrible situations want to come to. And the situations they are often fleeing are so terrible that they believe that any circumstance here, no matter how awful, must be better than the place they are so desperate to leave. The more the screws tighten on legal immigration, the more desperate people become, and the easier it is for the desperate to become prey to monsters in human form.
The human traffickers in this particular story have eyes and ears everywhere, and tentacles in every organization that can help them find more victims and cover up their crimes. Early on in the story, Craig is aware that someone close to the investigation, if not multiple someones, must be in the pay of the criminals. Figuring out who those person or persons might be takes place over a good chunk of the story. In the end, readers will find that the characters they have suspected all along are actually the guilty parties. In spite of the frenetic beginning, the case as a whole takes a while to ramp up to speed.
I found the first third of the book a bit slow going, but once past that point, events occur at breakneck speed and the reader gets caught up in the chase. In spite of the predictable elements to some parts of the ending, the story does keep you glued to your seat from that point forward. In the end, a good time is had by all, including the reader, and evil does get its just desserts. As it should be. Mar 26, Kari rated it it was ok Shelves: In this one, Kieran is approached by a strange woman who hands her a baby and vanishes. Minutes later, Kiernan finds the woman dying of a stab wound.
The case gets her and her FBI agent boyfriend, Craig, involved in an illegal human trafficking case. This series seems to be a hot or miss for me. The first book, Flawless, was just OK. While, the second book, A Perfect Obsession, was really good and had me hooked fr 2. While, the second book, A Perfect Obsession, was really good and had me hooked from the start. I wanted to love this one too, however, this one just didn't hook me in and I found myself pushing to finish it.
Other than the identity of the mother, I wasn't really interested in the mystery. It just kind of dragged. I did love Craig and Kieran together. They make a great couple and it was fun to see their relationship get stronger. But, to be honest, Kieran was kind of annoying in the book and that was a first.
I couldn't understand why she kept making dumb decisions. Craig was working the case, but she kept having to stick her nose in and put herself in danger. I think fans of the series will like this one. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't as exciting as I would have liked. Aug 24, JoAnne rated it really liked it Shelves: Mar 26, Toni rated it it was amazing. A nice change of pace not to have the paranormal. Enjoy Kieran and Craig as characters. Apr 02, Wendy rated it really liked it. Concerned that the woman targeted Kieran to hand off the baby to, and that her curiosity and desire to find the real mother will put her danger, Frasier promises to keep her abreast of any new details in the case.
Set in Manhattan events unfold that quickly engulf the Finnegan family, owners of the historic bar run by the eldest brother Declan; especially Kieran whose subtle investigation sweeps her brother Danny into danger. And when you think you have all the answers Heather Graham springs a surprise on the reader at the end.
Bringing the story to life are compelling characters like smart, intuitive curious and reckless Kieran Finnegan; the confident, authoritative and tough Craig Frasier, his partner the honest and direct Mike Dalton; the young, sweet and candid Tanya Petrofskya; and the irascible, hot-tempered but humorous Bea Goga. Apr 03, Books and Spoons rated it really liked it Shelves: The newest installment to the series of adventurous and dangerous life Kieran Finnegan and Craig Frasier live is an intense investigation of the human trafficking amongst the vulnerable illegal immigrates.
The case itself is troubling and heartbreaking, bringing light to the many difficult aspects of immigration to the States. The social issues are well embedded into the tale, yet are educational and enlightening. The many clues, some that seem insignificant, all are part of the bigger picture, The newest installment to the series of adventurous and dangerous life Kieran Finnegan and Craig Frasier live is an intense investigation of the human trafficking amongst the vulnerable illegal immigrates.
The many clues, some that seem insignificant, all are part of the bigger picture, and once again Kieran is in the middle of a deadly, dangerous, and even cruel crime spree, with culprits who have no respect to human life or rights. The culprits that seem to have connections everywhere, being able to stay just one step ahead of the investigation no matter where and how the task force is receiving information. The many twists in the plot and the hints of the outcome kept my interest high, and my eyes glued to the pages.
To find the culprits was a run against the clock, and I got invested in the outcome, felt for the victims, and cheered for the good guys to find the criminals, to find the King and Queen, to find the connections they had to the law enforcement that fed them information. I think this might have been my favorite book in the series when it comes to Kieran and Craig's relationship developing. The bond between them has always been tight, the attraction and the feelings they have for each other are a strong force in the stories. But in this story, their vulnerability is highlighted in several different situations, giving the tale another level of depth.
I usually do prefer the excitement of a new couple finding love in a middle of the drama and danger in my romantic suspense, but there are spark and energy in the stories written by Heather Graham that keep me coming back for more no matter in what form the story and series are written. Vigorous and intense investigation of fatal and sinister crimes amongst the most vulnerable people that once again put Kieran and Craig in the middle of dire situations, making them evaluate their own lives and their future.
From tedious combing of clues to aggressive action the story kept me on my toes until the volatile and violent conclusion. Mar 22, Jessica Higgins rated it it was amazing. An intriguing plot with a fun, flirty crime-fighting pair that is better at solving crimes than most seasoned detectives.
Kieran Finnegan has just finished up what she thought was going to be a normal day at the office. However, upon leaving the office, she hears a lady yelling her name who then thrust a small infant into her arms, which is by no means an ordinary end to her day. The woman runs off and is k An intriguing plot with a fun, flirty crime-fighting pair that is better at solving crimes than most seasoned detectives.
The woman runs off and is killed on the streets in front of Kieran moments later. Kieran has never met this woman and has no idea why she would bring this child to her. The first thing to note is that this is the third in a series. With many elements to the complicated plot, it takes careful attention by the reader to make sure they follow along until the very end to see how things wrap up, which they do quite nicely.
I thought the story flowed at a very enjoyable pace and the characters meshed well with each other. Graham did a great job showing the different aspects between Craig being with the FBI and Kieran not but also wanting to help solve the case.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own. Mar 29, Sam Clues and Reviews rated it liked it. Human trafficking, danger and a romantically linked team, A Dangerous Game seemed to have everything that I would want in a read!
From what I understand, the novels are written using the same characters throughout but are independent stories, which makes it easy to read them as a standalone. This was absolutely true! I had no issue following the story or latching on to the main characters.
After the first few pages, I was hooked. Usually, when I read romantic suspense, I expect to have a novel that is heavy on the romance with a little bit of mystery mixed in. But, for this novel, I was pleasantly surprised to find the opposite to be true! I found that A Dangerous Game had plenty of action and a few twists and turns with the romantic element taking more of a backseat. One thing that I struggled with was that A Dangerous Game had a plethora of characters, some easier to keep track of than others, and I found this to be a little bit distracting as I read.
Now, as mentioned, I have not read the other books in the series so I am not sure if this was an issue related to that or if it truly was a large number of new characters introduced. Either way, I felt like I could easily have plucked ten characters out of the story immediately and not have missed them. Overall, I felt like this was an excellent lighter crime read and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice crime read for the beach; I know I always reach for a romantic suspense when the weather gets warmer!
Jun 06, Allison rated it really liked it Shelves: The newest installment to the series staring Kieran Finnegan and Craig Frasier lives relates to investigation of the human trafficking of illegal immigrates. The case is very timely albit unsettling at the same time, it brings to light the problems that many encounter as they try to immigrate to the United States.

The story starts with Kieran, who is approached by a woman in her office in obvious distress, who then thrusts a bundle towards her and quickly retreats to the street, where she is killed in daylight on a busy street. As always there are subtle clues, that relate to bigger picture, and as Kieran compels Craig to become involved in the investigation the culprits seem to have connections inside the investigation since they are able to stay just one step ahead of the investigation no matter how the information is received.
Again they are running against the clock to help reunite the mother with the child and to stop the dangerous ring of criminals. This wasn't my favorite book in the series when it comes to Kieran and Craig, although their relationship is developing. Their bond is growing and forming into something more permanent,w e do get a bit more information on the others in the Finnigan clan too.
There were points where I wasn't a fan of Kieran but over all the story line is good and it does hit on some very important points and sheds light on some very horrible experiences. I appreciate Heather Graham being willing to work with such a tough topic that doesn't get the attention that it deserves. Mar 19, Lynn Brooks rated it really liked it. From the first page, we are thrust into the middle of a complex crime and taken for a ride throughout New York, various crime scenes, various law enforcement agencies and multiple possible scenarios! The basis of the plot is good, but there are so many secondary characters brought into the mix that it dilutes the plot a lot.
The main couple are intriguing, but spend the majority of the story chasing leads without showing their connection a great deal. Perhaps it was shown stronger earlier in the series, as this is the third book surrounding this family, but only the first that I'm reading.
For me, it had promise, but was missing some substance. To say that she's a magnet for trouble might be putting it mildly as Kieran Finnegan finds herself once again thrust smack dab in the middle of a crime! She truly was just minding her own business wrapping up a normal day of business as a criminal psychologist when a woman approaches her by name and thrusts a baby into her arms. Attempting to catch up with her as she flees down the street, Keiran is shocked to see that she has been murdered practically in front of her! With a heartfelt connection to this innocent baby, she sets out to try to find out what in the world is going on in this city and brings in her boyfriend, FBI Special Agent Craig Frasier to help her out.
He agrees something is fishy and goes about investigating Apr 11, Melissa rated it really liked it Shelves: In fact, one of the things I really liked was that when Graham writes intimate scenes between protagonist Kieran Finnegan and her boyfriend Craig Fraiser, they really show the comfort of an established relationship without feeling boring or stale.
Graham is equally deft at writing intricate, fast-paced plots and vivid characters.

Goes well with Irish stew served with brown bread and a glass of hard cider. Mar 01, Annetta Sweetko rated it it was amazing. It is action packed, frightening and with a number of twists that only author Heather Graham can come up with.
