A father’s disappearance never solved, a mother’s secret taken to the grave, a daughter deceived…
Kathryn Landry thinks her life is just about perfect. She is the owner of a successful interior designer business in Newport Beach, California, and she has an attentive, supportive husband. But her world comes crashing down when her husband, Neil Landry, vanishes without a trace… in a situation almost identical to the disappearance of her father twenty years before.
With her father’s disappearance still a mystery, Kathryn is skeptical that the detective assigned to her case will be able to find her husband. Determined to uncover the truth, Kathryn is plunged into a world of politics, high-priced call girls and wealth. As she begins to search for her husband, a decades-old secret her mother took to the grave threatens to destroy all she holds dear. Caught up in a web of betrayals and deceit, and not knowing who to trust, Kathryn must find a way to survive as she discovers the past has a way of repeating itself.

K. A. Davis' A Game of Deceit
Riveting, emotional, fast paced read!!!
Once you start reading, you will find yourself
reading non-stop until the final page.
The definition of deceit is the act of causing
someone to accept as true or valid what is
false or invalid. In this book it becomes a game.
There is mystery, suspense, murder, arson,
drama, disappearances, jealousy, greed,
abuse of power, forest fires, vandalized office
and apartments, hidden bank accounts,
falsified passports, horse tampering, car
bumping over a cliff, secret brotherhood,
voyeurism, politics, call girls plus more.
Intrigue is heightened to mountainous proportions .
The tension was thick and well-sustained. There
is a touch of romance, family interaction and humor.
The main characters is Kathryn Landry. She is well
created, well defined, curious, self sufficient woman
whose father disappeared when she was a child
then her mother committed suicide. Now her husband
has disappeared. Kathryn knows something is not
what is seems. She knows she is in danger but
from whom?? Could the disappearance of her
father, husband and two women all be related?
Who can she trust? Will Kay be able to figure out
the deceit surrounding her?
The secondary cast of characters are well fleshed
out, vivid, interesting with quirky traits.
I highly recommend this breath taking read.
I volunteered to read "The Game of Deceit".

Crew. My opinion is my own.
A GAME OF DECEIT
A GAME OF DECEIT. by. K A Davis The. story starts out with a watcher being watch.. Kathryn comes home, Neil clothes are gone, after 11 years, this is how it ends, like her father did. Doorman didn't see anything, apartment above, paid the rent, but no one lived there. Money not put into account, as Neil said, instead he made a withdrawal. Her apartment been ransacked, what else could go wrong. A good plot that twists and turns and keeps you guessing. Questions about her parents, still bother her, who will help. A new author for me, and she did a good job, will look for me by her. Given ARC by Net Galley for my voluntary review and my honest opinion..
