THE DEAD GAME
by Susanne Leist
I would like to introduce you to a great person and fellow author, Susanne Leist author of The Dead Game. This paranormal book has been getting rave reviews and because of it, Susanne was recently invited to the Roundtable discussion on The Big Thrill, the International Online Magazine for Thriller Writers.
Here’s what Susanne had to say:
Why do you believe the world of the supernatural has captivated books & movies, and how do you think it has affected people and our society?
Tales of the supernatural and the vampire myth have been around for hundreds of years. Some say that the vampire was born out of sorcery in Ancient Egypt and was believed to have been a demon. There have been Asian vampires and Slavic vampires. But the most famous vampire was Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Dracula is speculated to have been based upon the Romanian prince Vlad Tepes of the fifteenth century.
All these stories have one thing in common. They were created from people’s fears and superstitions. Vampires were blamed for bad events. If there was a drought or a flood, the villagers feared that the dead had risen to punish them. Graves of the newly dead were unearthed and staked. But do fears and superstitions play a role in today’s love for the supernatural?
Supernatural and fantasy is prevalent today in books and movies. But do people believe in them? Do these stories affect their lives? The world of the supernatural is fun and entertaining, no matter whether they’re stories of witches, vampires, or demons. A little blood and gore doesn’t hurt anyone when it’s done for fun. So sit back and enjoy you next escape into the unknown

Linda moves to a seaside town to live a quiet life. She opens a bookstore and makes new friends. Life is simple–that is until the dead body washes up on shore. Linda is horrified to find that dead bodies and disappearing tourists are common for this small town. As soon as the sun sets, the residents and tourists are stalked by dark shadows. But this is only the beginning.
Linda and her friends receive an unsigned invitation to a party at a deserted house. They are pursued through revolving rooms and dangerous traps, barely escaping with their lives. Two of their own remain trapped in the house. Or so they think.
They must embark on a difficult journey, chased by unnatural creatures, not knowing whom to trust, to uncover the one controlling the game and everyone in town. Who are The Dead? Are they humans or vampires? Or a combination of both? Will there be an end to their evil game? Will Linda and Todd find love? Will a second book be needed?
The Dead Game has begun.
About the Author
Susanne Leist graduated with an M.B.A. in Finance. Wherever life has led her, through the hectic commodities’ markets or the number-crunching field of budgeting, she’s continued to read and daydream. Unbeknownst to her, she had been pursuing her dream all along, her dream of putting her words down on paper for everyone to enjoy. She currently resides on Long Island with her husband, two daughters, and Maltese.
Her first book, The Dead Game, is a paranormal thriller with humans, vampires, and vampire derivatives. Her goal has been to write a book different than the usual vampire story or murder mystery. She wanted a murder mystery with victims, clues, and suspects. She created that and much more. The book has revolving rooms, traps, falling cages, and anything her active imagination could create. The Dead Game is a fun ride into the realms of the supernatural.
