Adept at getting inside the head of criminal and victim alike, Jeffery Deaver is the author of expertly crafted crime novels. Deaver’s previous careers as journalist and lawyer stood him in good stead when composing his first book, Manhattan is My Beat, in 1988. Nine years later he hit upon his most famous creation, the quadriplegic detective Lincoln Rhyme, in The Bone Collector. The book sparked a long-running novel series as well as a Hollywood movie starring Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie. Deaver was also commissioned by Ian Fleming’s estate to write the James Bond novel Carte Blanche, which appeared in 2011.
In The Never Game Jeffery Deaver introduces his most unconventional sleuth yet. Colter Shaw was raised in the wild and relies on quick wits and tracking skills to survive, exactly the kind of talents vital to finding a missing person. When Sophie disappears her father turns to Shaw for help, but this is no ordinary crime. Shaw soon begins to realise that he may be facing a perpetrator as unique as himself. The first in an explosive new series of psychological thrillers by the unrivalled Jeffery Deaver, The Never Game is a taut slice of storytelling that is impossible to put down.
