    Stratagem is exactly the type of suspense/thriller novel that I like to read ? a plot that plays at your mind even as it plays with the minds of the characters, characters by the way that you aren?t entirely sure you can trust. The whole lot of them. Just when you think you can rel...

    Fans of police dramas will enjoy this one set in New Orleans. A company who creates elaborate live game challenges with escape rooms has a surprise feature: a murder. Things get complicated as the victim is the ex-wife of the game creator. This story was an interesting one, with a ...

    Title: Stratagem Author: Robin Carroll Pages: 320 Year: 2018 Publisher: Shiloh Press Run My rating: 5 out of 5 stars. The setting of the story is in New Orleans where a company creates games for people to live out sometimes without them knowing they are living out a game. Games o...

    Wow, this book was a page turner! I love suspense books, typically because I enjoy figuring everything out. But this book? It was so much more than that. Yes, it was fun to figure out the whodunit. The author masterfully crafted a string of clues that make you think you're going in one...

    This isn't my usual read, but it was really good and kept me guessing the WHOLE TIME. Anna Belle was very easy to dislike and yet she didn't deserve to be murdered, the whole story is Grayson, her ex-husband, finding the strength in God to forgive her while trying to keep his cool ...

    Stratagem is the first book I have read by Robin Caroll. I read a lot of mysteries and found myself craving a suspenseful read. I found this story to have an original plot, making use of a ?game? like one might find in a reality show or escape room scenario as the setting for a mur...

    I love a good mystery and this one was great. Set in the historical city of New Orleans, the story was very atmospheric and the pacing was brisk. The story focused on a murder that occurred during a team building simulation adventure in a creepy mansion. There are many characters (s...

    'How could someone go so totally out of character?' Grayson Thibodeaux is a psychologist who creates mind-bending games for companies to evaluate their employees. He creates a game for the company who employees his ex-wife, Anna Belle, and she turns up dead. And he turns up as the m...

    A book that will keep your attention from beginning to end, and when the answers start to come you will be shaking your head and wondering how you didn?t come to this conclusion. I was quickly page turning to find the answers here, and find out who committed the murder and why. The ...

    This is a different kind of book than I normally read. I usually read romantic suspense thrillers or anything with a bit of a romance. This book is totally mystery with no romance. But, with that said, I'm a big fan of this author..So I thought I'd check it out. This book reminded me o...

    It's a rare book that makes me go ?Whoa? & ?Wow, what a ride? at the end, but this one certainly did! It surprised me how much I liked this as I tend to be very picky about books labeled psychological thrillers. Some are way to edgy or questionable for my taste. Not Strata...

    "Stratagem"by Robin Caroll is a book that is a good read. The plot is a A High-Stakes Simulation Adventure game that turns to murder. The story is written partly as a murder investigation with the characters telling of what part they played leading up to the murder. It was a very e...

    I decided to read a book that is a little bit different than what I normally read which almost always has to include romance. However, Stratagem is a suspense book about the murder of an ex-wife. While not my usual read, I have read author Robin Caroll?s books before and the book pre...

    MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK I will have to say, I?ve never heard of mind-bending adventure games. So this was a new adventure for me. Grayson Thibodeaux ended up in the middle of his ex-wife?s murder, being the prime suspect. All leads ended up with Grayson. Or was someone else tr...

    4.5 Stars If you are a fan of psychological twists in your entertainment, then Stratagem is for you! Robin Caroll gives readers a book filled with twist, turns, several suspects, and a game that is based on your weaknesses and fears. But what an entertaining ride it is! I had ...

    Usually movies are inspired by books, but the note in the back of the book says Stratagem was hatched after the author watched Michael Douglas and Sean Penn in The Game. Having not watched the movie, it appears the book borrows the basic premise of the movie (a living game), inserts it...

    This was my first Robin Caroll book but it won?t be my last. I can see why all the hoopla surrounding her stories. The psychological twists and turns in Stratagem are mind-blowing. The way businesses use these freaky games to encourage team work and/or choose which employee is worthy...

    A well-written mystery/suspense novel with a great plot! I am a fan of Robin Caroll?s books and Stratagem definitely lives up to the standards I expect from the author. The plot is full of twists and turns, red flags and red herrings, and well laid-out details that I couldn?t be su...

    Game On Starting this year, I have been avoiding looking at the summary of most of the books that I read, including those I review, to make reading a more exciting experience and to steer clear of figuring out the plot too early. ?Stratagem? was featured on many Christian book blog...

    This is a good who-done-it murder mystery. It walks you through things and gives you the clues to figure it out yourself. It?s a page turner so you might get there before your brain can process things. But if you can stop turning pages and take some time to think it through, it is pr...

    Oh this book is fabulous with all the twists and turns. Yes, the guilty one is not hard to figure out but the why and how is amazing. The whole twisted idea of the games is fascinating. and I thought the team building I have been part of was bad..just imagine being put into the game. P...

    Stratagem, by Robin Caroll, is a Christian Suspense novel that is full of adventure and suspense. A great ?who done it? story with a great message. Grayson is part owner in Game?s On You, which develops games for companies to use with their employees to pick the best candidate...

    Stratagem is a another great Robin Caroll mystery that takes place in New Orleans. Ms. Caroll has created realistic characters, some of which, I found likable and some were very unlikable, and an unusual plot that was quite interesting to read. Dr. Grayson Thibodeaux is a psychologist ...

    I really wanted to like this book. It started off well with interesting characters and a murder mystery. I was just starting to really get into it and then Voodoo and Hoodoo was brought up again as with the author?s previous book i?ve read. I do not want to read about this or o...

    This is a different kind of book than I normally read. I usually read romantic suspense thrillers or anything with a bit of a romance. This book is totally mystery with no romance. But, with that said, I'm a big fan of this author..So I thought I'd check it out. This book reminded me o...

    Usually movies are inspired by books, but the note in the back of the book says Stratagem was hatched after the author watched Michael Douglas and Sean Penn in The Game. Having not watched the movie, it appears the book borrows the basic premise of the movie (a living game), inserts it...

    This was my first Robin Caroll book but it won?t be my last. I can see why all the hoopla surrounding her stories. The psychological twists and turns in Stratagem are mind-blowing. The way businesses use these freaky games to encourage team work and/or choose which employee is worthy...

    A well-written mystery/suspense novel with a great plot! I am a fan of Robin Caroll?s books and Stratagem definitely lives up to the standards I expect from the author. The plot is full of twists and turns, red flags and red herrings, and well laid-out details that I couldn?t be su...

    This is a good who-done-it murder mystery. It walks you through things and gives you the clues to figure it out yourself. It?s a page turner so you might get there before your brain can process things. But if you can stop turning pages and take some time to think it through, it is pr...

    Oh this book is fabulous with all the twists and turns. Yes, the guilty one is not hard to figure out but the why and how is amazing. The whole twisted idea of the games is fascinating. and I thought the team building I have been part of was bad..just imagine being put into the game. P...

    Stratagem, by Robin Caroll, is a Christian Suspense novel that is full of adventure and suspense. A great ?who done it? story with a great message. Grayson is part owner in Game?s On You, which develops games for companies to use with their employees to pick the best candidate...

    Stratagem is a another great Robin Caroll mystery that takes place in New Orleans. Ms. Caroll has created realistic characters, some of which, I found likable and some were very unlikable, and an unusual plot that was quite interesting to read. Dr. Grayson Thibodeaux is a psychologist ...

    I really wanted to like this book. It started off well with interesting characters and a murder mystery. I was just starting to really get into it and then Voodoo and Hoodoo was brought up again as with the author?s previous book i?ve read. I do not want to read about this or o...

    Three Excellent Things I Found in Stratagem First?excellent writing. Sometimes suspense authors get a little lazy with their ?voice? because they can. The tension and action carry their stories well enough not to need a strong voice. But Robin Caroll has one?and it?s aw...

    I'm starting my review with a warning about the book. When you start this book, make sure you allow yourself time to read the entire book in one sitting. Why? To put it simply, because there is no way to read this book without stopping. The story line is rich in intrigue and takes us t...

    Amazing, simply amazing! It didn't take long for me to get drawn into the story and find that I liked Grayson a whole lot. He was brilliant, that almost goes without saying. But he was also a caring man who had got shafted by his ex. But his ex-wife Anna Belle didn't just save the pain...

    Title: Stratagem Author: Robin Carroll Pages: 320 Year: 2018 Publisher: Shiloh Press Run My rating: 5 out of 5 stars. The setting of the story is in New Orleans where a company creates games for people to live out sometimes without them knowing they are living out a game. Games o...

    Wow, this book was a page turner! I love suspense books, typically because I enjoy figuring everything out. But this book? It was so much more than that. Yes, it was fun to figure out the whodunit. The author masterfully crafted a string of clues that make you think you're going in one...

    This isn't my usual read, but it was really good and kept me guessing the WHOLE TIME. Anna Belle was very easy to dislike and yet she didn't deserve to be murdered, the whole story is Grayson, her ex-husband, finding the strength in God to forgive her while trying to keep his cool ...

    Stratagem is the first book I have read by Robin Caroll. I read a lot of mysteries and found myself craving a suspenseful read. I found this story to have an original plot, making use of a ?game? like one might find in a reality show or escape room scenario as the setting for a mur...

    This is a different kind of book than I normally read. I usually read romantic suspense thrillers or anything with a bit of a romance. This book is totally mystery with no romance. But, with that said, I'm a big fan of this author..So I thought I'd check it out. This book reminded me o...

    It's a rare book that makes me go ?Whoa? & ?Wow, what a ride? at the end, but this one certainly did! It surprised me how much I liked this as I tend to be very picky about books labeled psychological thrillers. Some are way to edgy or questionable for my taste. Not Strata...

    MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK I will have to say, I?ve never heard of mind-bending adventure games. So this was a new adventure for me. Grayson Thibodeaux ended up in the middle of his ex-wife?s murder, being the prime suspect. All leads ended up with Grayson. Or was someone else tr...

    This is a good who-done-it murder mystery. It walks you through things and gives you the clues to figure it out yourself. It?s a page turner so you might get there before your brain can process things. But if you can stop turning pages and take some time to think it through, it is pr...

    Title: Stratagem Author: Robin Carroll Pages: 320 Year: 2018 Publisher: Shiloh Press Run My rating: 5 out of 5 stars. The setting of the story is in New Orleans where a company creates games for people to live out sometimes without them knowing they are living out a game. Games o...

    Wow, this book was a page turner! I love suspense books, typically because I enjoy figuring everything out. But this book? It was so much more than that. Yes, it was fun to figure out the whodunit. The author masterfully crafted a string of clues that make you think you're going in one...

    This isn't my usual read, but it was really good and kept me guessing the WHOLE TIME. Anna Belle was very easy to dislike and yet she didn't deserve to be murdered, the whole story is Grayson, her ex-husband, finding the strength in God to forgive her while trying to keep his cool ...

    Stratagem is the first book I have read by Robin Caroll. I read a lot of mysteries and found myself craving a suspenseful read. I found this story to have an original plot, making use of a ?game? like one might find in a reality show or escape room scenario as the setting for a mur...

    This is a different kind of book than I normally read. I usually read romantic suspense thrillers or anything with a bit of a romance. This book is totally mystery with no romance. But, with that said, I'm a big fan of this author..So I thought I'd check it out. This book reminded me o...

    It's a rare book that makes me go ?Whoa? & ?Wow, what a ride? at the end, but this one certainly did! It surprised me how much I liked this as I tend to be very picky about books labeled psychological thrillers. Some are way to edgy or questionable for my taste. Not Strata...

    "Stratagem"by Robin Caroll is a book that is a good read. The plot is a A High-Stakes Simulation Adventure game that turns to murder. The story is written partly as a murder investigation with the characters telling of what part they played leading up to the murder. It was a very e...

    I decided to read a book that is a little bit different than what I normally read which almost always has to include romance. However, Stratagem is a suspense book about the murder of an ex-wife. While not my usual read, I have read author Robin Caroll?s books before and the book pre...

    MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK I will have to say, I?ve never heard of mind-bending adventure games. So this was a new adventure for me. Grayson Thibodeaux ended up in the middle of his ex-wife?s murder, being the prime suspect. All leads ended up with Grayson. Or was someone else tr...

    4.5 Stars If you are a fan of psychological twists in your entertainment, then Stratagem is for you! Robin Caroll gives readers a book filled with twist, turns, several suspects, and a game that is based on your weaknesses and fears. But what an entertaining ride it is! I had ...

    Usually movies are inspired by books, but the note in the back of the book says Stratagem was hatched after the author watched Michael Douglas and Sean Penn in The Game. Having not watched the movie, it appears the book borrows the basic premise of the movie (a living game), inserts it...

    This was my first Robin Caroll book but it won?t be my last. I can see why all the hoopla surrounding her stories. The psychological twists and turns in Stratagem are mind-blowing. The way businesses use these freaky games to encourage team work and/or choose which employee is worthy...

    A well-written mystery/suspense novel with a great plot! I am a fan of Robin Caroll?s books and Stratagem definitely lives up to the standards I expect from the author. The plot is full of twists and turns, red flags and red herrings, and well laid-out details that I couldn?t be su...

    This is a good who-done-it murder mystery. It walks you through things and gives you the clues to figure it out yourself. It?s a page turner so you might get there before your brain can process things. But if you can stop turning pages and take some time to think it through, it is pr...

    Oh this book is fabulous with all the twists and turns. Yes, the guilty one is not hard to figure out but the why and how is amazing. The whole twisted idea of the games is fascinating. and I thought the team building I have been part of was bad..just imagine being put into the game. P...

    Stratagem is a another great Robin Caroll mystery that takes place in New Orleans. Ms. Caroll has created realistic characters, some of which, I found likable and some were very unlikable, and an unusual plot that was quite interesting to read. Dr. Grayson Thibodeaux is a psychologist ...

    I really wanted to like this book. It started off well with interesting characters and a murder mystery. I was just starting to really get into it and then Voodoo and Hoodoo was brought up again as with the author?s previous book i?ve read. I do not want to read about this or o...
