Homicide Detective John Cooper finds himself caught up in a strange game of murder with a mysterious caller.

Homicide Detective John Cooper has always followed the evidence to solve any case until a mysterious caller makes him question that evidence. The murder cases he's working on are already solved, so John wonders what the phone calls have to do with them. The evidence proves the guilt of those involved, but the calls make him start to question the evidence and himself - for the first time in his career.

With each move, John finds himself caught up in a game with an unknown opponent who is always one step ahead and seems to know John better than he knows himself, but how? How can someone know every detail of the murder cases and not be involved? But most importantly, how can this chilling caller know everything about John? As John prepares himself to take on the challenge, he soon realizes that everything he's believed in is no longer part of his new reality.

He patiently watched from the shadows as they strolled toward each car, a look of hunger clearly burning in their eyes. It was cool out tonight as it always was this time of the year, but you would never know it by the way they were dressed. These were all used up, unkempt and worn and the very thought of them made his skin crawl. The last time he'd partaken of their company he had noticed a new one who was fresh and pleasing to the eyes. This was the one he’d come back for tonight.

Professional Reviews

Tanya Contois- All things books
I spend a lot of time reading and I've always been a fan of murder mysteries and Next Move,You're Dead was a great read.It held my attention from the first paragraph until the last and I found myself unable to stop reading because I was so interested to see what would happen next.I'm very much looking forward to reading what Ms.Barton comes up with next.I'm sure it will be as enjoyable to read as Next Move,You're Dead was.

Great read
John and Kathy Cooper had a happy life. They supported each other in all things. Then strange phone calls interrupted all that. That phone call and others like it lead John on a quest that involves multiple murders and much mystery.
This novel is a real treat. The plot is different than any I have read before, not the same old detective story. For the fan of the detective/mystery genre, this is a great read. I think you will enjoy it very much. I did.

Interesting but dark
a psychological thriller with John a policeman trying to find what seems to be a serial killer but nothing connects between the killings. The ending is quite a twist that lets you realize John has changed. Someone keeps calling him and taunting him over each killing that may or may not have been a set up. His guilt over his partner getting killed years ago doesn't help matters and seems to be a driving force in the way this story ends.
