Publisher's Summary

Participation is not an option....
The Lambert Family is heading to Crescent Lake, a rural cabin community in western Pennsylvania, for an idyllic weekend getaway. Some fishing, some barbecue, some games...
The Fannelli brothers are heading to Crescent Lake too. Some stalking, some kidnapping, some murder, definitely some games - though not necessarily the type of games the Lamberts had in mind.
But it doesn't matter. The Lamberts are going to play whether they like it or not.
An intense psychological thriller, Bad Games has the dark, mind-bending terror of Cape Fear combined with the fish-out-of-water dread and suspense of Deliverance.
So let Jeff Menapace's best-selling thriller keep you up all night as it delves into the mystery of nature versus nurture when comprehending the evil in man, along with the will and determination an innocent family must summon to fight back against horrific odds.
Bonus! Includes the first chapter of the pulse-pounding sequel, Vengeful Games.

Wow! This Was SO Good!

Nail biting suspense, humor, twists and turns. Well written and narrated story. Don’t want to say anything else, no spoilers. I’ll remember this one for a long time. Well worth your time, money or credit. There is some violence but surprisingly not as much as you might expect. The ending will raise the hairs on the back of your neck.

mixed feelings

The reviews were misleading as this novel turned out pretty mediocre. There wasn't anything overly interesting or genius about the motives of the main characters, it read like a story that's been heard a hundred times, and by the end you realize that there isn't any super twist that makes you think you should of been paying more attention to details. I would go as far as to say that some of the actions of the brothers early in the novel was unnecessary and damaging to the overall novel. That being said, it was the narrator that added enough life to the simple story to keep me going to the end. The end is one of two possible endings that, satisfyingly, complete a story such as this. If it wasn't for the preview of the next book in the series at the end of this audiobook I would have lowered my rating.
