I’ve gotten some great new books in the mail lately, and I’ve decided to feature them one by one, rather than making all the tiny cover images work. Easier on me and probably easier to read as well.
This new acquisition comes from the good folks at Atria Publishing Group. I can’t wait to get started on it!
Game by Anders de la Motte is the first in a trilogy. (Why does everyone write trilogies these days? Why not a quadrology?) It’s one of those stories about being in the right place at the right time — or maybe the wrong place, wrong time — and everything that comes after:
Aimless young Henrik “HP” Petterson finds a cellphone on a Stockholm train that invites him to play a game: in no time, he’s embarking on daring, high-stakes missions that turn his ordinary life extraordinary. HP loves the thrill, and the rewards, but is there a sinister side to the seemingly innocent contest?
Meanwhile, ambitious Detective Rebecca Normén is moving up the career ladder in the Swedish Secret Service but is troubled by the handwritten notes she keeps finding in her locker. Whoever writes them knows way too much about her past. HP’s and Rebecca’s worlds inevitably collide. But if reality is just a game, then what is real?
