The Never Game is a gripping page-turner that in true Deaver style will keep you awake all night:

The killer is changing the rules. One murder at a time . . .

You wake up all alone, in the middle of a forest, miles from anywhere.

Beside you lie five objects – a lighter, grease, picture-frame wire, a piece of silk, a bottle of water – which you will need to use if you want to survive.

You’ve been taken by the Whispering Man and there is no escape. He makes the rules and nobody ever gets out alive.

Enigmatic investigator Colter Shaw is fighting to stop the murders. But another victim has been snatched from her family and he’s running out of time.

In the darkest corner of Silicon Valley, a new breed of killer is emerging: someone with a deadly obsession, whose twisted game is spiralling out of control.

The Never Game is the very definition of a page-turner’ IAN RANKIN

Masterful storytelling — The Never Game is Deaver’s most riveting, most twisty, most unputdownable novel yet.’ KARIN SLAUGHTER

‘As always, Deaver gets you in his stealthy grip on page one, and then takes you on a wild and inventive ride …this time with new star character Colter Shaw.  No one in the world does this kind of thing better than Deaver’ LEE CHILD

‘Jeffery Deaver scores yet again with a fascinating new detective, Colter Shaw, and a plot as full of thrills and twists and turns as you would expect from him. With The Never Game you know you are in the hands of a master. But be warned—don’t start this too late in the evening because sleep would be an annoying interruption once you’ve started reading!’ PETER ROBINSON
