Across the globe, five strangers receive a horrifying message from an unknown number.
THE PERSON YOU LOVE MOST IS IN DANGER.
To save them, each must play The Game – a sinister unknown entity that has a single rule: there can only be one winner.
IF YOU LOSE, YOUR LOVED ONE WILL DIE.
But what is The Game – and why have they been chosen?
There’s only one thing each of them knows for sure: they’ll do anything to win…
WELCOME TO THE GAME. YOU’VE JUST STARTED PLAYING.
My thoughts: what would you do for the person you love the most? That’s essentially what the characters in this book have to decide, it might require going on the run, getting on a plane and avoiding leaving a paper trail, it might lead you to a remote location with a group of strangers, all of whom trust each other not at all. But you might have to work together to solve this thing and end The Game.
Twisted and sinister, the use of technology, the slightly insane risks (running across a motorway for example) that the “players” are made to take in order to save the people they value the most, this is gripping, stomach clenching read, with twists and chills all the way through.
