The Murder Game by Carrie Doyle Book Review

Reaviw by James J. Cudney author of Father Figure

The Murder Game is the latest novel from Carrie Doyle. I’m current in her two amateur sleuth novel series, and I’ve had this in one in my queue for most of the year. It’s very YA-based, and I wasn’t sure I would totally love it. It takes place at a Connecticut boarding school (30 minutes from where I’m moving to next year), and the kids are around 16 years old. The plot was interesting, and since I wanted to catch up on some of the books I’d TBR’d earlier this year, this was next in line.

Definitely geared toward a younger audience. I enjoyed it, but the language was simple and the plot was a bit dramatic for me (in terms of dealing with the ages of the students). I found myself much more keen when they interacted with adults, not with each other. From the author’s other books, she’s very clever in her word choice, but that was missing here. Intended, I’m sure, for the audience and the different genre. The other part that left me a little uncertain was the title. It really didn’t fit at all. It was a murder mystery, and no game was involved. The way in which Luke investigates was top notch. I love his backstory. And the campus sounds pretty cool.

It looks like this could turn into a series. There’s an open-ended piece of the plot (not part of the main story) that would make a good 2nd book. I do like Oscar and Luke, but I wasn’t a fan of Kelsey and Pippa. Pippa would be the focus of the 2nd book, plus there’s a stalker / serial killer in the news, and that could go somewhere too. Not sure where that might go yet! Either way, I did like the book, and I will read any future ones. Just would’ve been better marketed toward the YA audience. Maybe it was, and I missed that! 🙂

The Murder Game by Carrie Doyle Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-Luke Chase and his best friend Oscar just wanted a night of teenage rebellion at their quiet, private boarding school. The plan was simple: sneak out of their dorm, meet their friends Kelsey and Pippa, and have a fun evening. When they hear adults near their hangout spot, the four teens think they’re caught. Instead, they hear a murder. The victim, Mrs. Heckler, is the flirtatious wife of one of the deans, and when rumors fly that she was having an affair with a student, Oscar becomes the prime suspect. Luke knows Oscar is innocent, so he starts his own investigation to clear his friend’s name. Doyle uses her past work writing cozy mysteries to create an intriguing whodunit with enough red herrings and plot twists to keep readers guessing until the big reveal. The teen characters are richly developed and complex, with interesting and suspicious motives. However, the adult characters are more stereotypical and some readers may find the interactions between the teens and adults implausible. In particular, the teachers are too informal and open with their students. While the resolution is tidy, the pacing is a bit rushed near the climax, and readers may be left wanting more. Readers who enjoyed Karen M. McManus’s One of Us Is Lying, Dana Mele’s People Like Us, and Chelsea Pitcher’s This Lie Will Kill You will find this a satisfying read. Most main characters’ races aren’t stated, and there is some diversity in the supporting cast. VERDICT A character-driven murder mystery that will leave readers guessing until the big reveal.-Kaetlyn Phillips, Yorkton, Sask.α(c) Copyright 2011.
