‘The Never Game’ by Jeffery Deaver

An engaging puzzle of a thriller, full of twists and introducing a new breed of ‘hero’ who you’ll definitely want on your side!

Yep Colter Shaw works for me! What an intriguing protagonist, his approach to his ‘job’ is fascinating and I’ve even started thinking in percentages – lol!
He is a fascinating ‘hunter’ and uses the skills taught to him by his parents to help people who need help finding others. He is a lonely figure but seems confidence and secure in the life and career he has chosen.
This is a thriller, that immerses the reader into Shaw’s world of kidnap, murder and the psychology of the criminal mind linked to the multi-million pound video gaming world. I’m not a gamer, but I was fascinated with this world of video games and its ability to put people into virtual worlds. It’s also a current thread about how playing such games can alter and affect the reality of the players.
I was intrigued by this book and despite the pace slowing at times, I really enjoyed the twists and turns and working out the puzzling threads as the story developed. It’s also clearly the beginning of a series and I’ll definitely be reading more.
