Award-winning author David C. Cassidy is the twisted mind behind several best-selling novels of horror and suspense, Velvet Rain, The Dark, and Fosgate’s Game. An author, photographer, and graphic designer—and a half-decent juggler—he spends his writing life creating dark and touching stories where Bad Things Happen To Good People. Raised by wolves, he grew up with a love of nature, music, science, and history, with thrillers and horror novels feeding the dark side of his seriously disturbed imagination. He talks to his characters, talks often, and most times they listen. But the real fun starts when they tell him to take a hike, and they Open That Door anyway. Idiots.
David lives in Ontario, Canada. From Mozart to Vivaldi, classic jazz to classic rock, he feels naked without his iPod. Suffering from MAD—Multiple Activity Disorder—he divides his time between writing and blogging, photography and Photoshop, reading and rollerblading. An avid amateur astronomer, he loves the night sky, chasing the stars with his telescope. Sometimes he eats.

"Given the choice, he shouldn't have played Fosgate's Game.
Given the choice . . . he should have taken death."
These opening lines had me. Everything that followed did not disappoint. Thanks to the talented David C. Cassidy's visual writing style and attention to detail, I felt like I was hunkered down in front of the television, absenting depositing popcorn into my mouth while spellbound by a classic black-and-white Alfred Hitchhock film. Good stuff.
In my review for Velvet Rain, I referred to Cassidy as a master puppeteer, due to his ability to elicit strong emotion from his readers. Fosgate's Game is further testament of his skill to capture his audience and move them through scenes like chess pieces. Cassidy also proves how versatile his writing voice is. Where Velvet Rain's characters are primarily small town folk in Iowa with limited education, Fosgate and Chadwich represent England's upper-crust. Cassidy pulls off this portrayal swimmingly. Fosgate is a very dignified killer.
I highly recommend this superb novella to anyone who enjoys suspense, Alfred Hitchcock films, The Twilight Zone, and exceptional writing.
