'Like an episode of Black Mirror written by Stephen King' John Marrs, bestselling author of The One

'Immersive, claustrophobic . . . addictive' Guardian


Win and All Your Dreams Come True ™! ;)

Charlie and his friends have entered the God Game.

Tasks are delivered through their phones. When they accomplish a mission, the game rewards them. Charlie's money problems could be over. Vanhi can erase the one bad grade on her university application. It's all fun and games - at first.

Then the threatening messages start.

Obey me.

Mysterious packages show up at their homes. Shadowy figures start following them. Who else is playing this game, and how far will they go to win?

As Charlie looks for a way out, there's only one rule he knows for sure.

If you die in the game, you die for real.

Smart, propulsive and gripping, The God Game is an ambitious thriller and a terrifying examination of what could - and probably already is - happening in the world of artificial intelligence * Harlan Coben, #1 Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author *
Like an episode of Black Mirror written by Stephen King. It reminded me in parts of Stand By Me meets Ready Player One - a wildly original thriller with heart * John Marrs *
Tension and turmoil add up to high stakes suspense and a plot that will make you wonder if all this stuff is real. Danny Tobey absolutely kicks butt and takes names in this gem of a thriller * Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author *
With a pace that is fast but not too fast . . . and a story that keeps the reader in a constant state of suspense, the book is sure to appeal to SF readers, gamers, and anyone who enjoys a well-plotted, well-told thriller * Booklist *
Great characters, a novel concept, and scary set pieces. * KIRKUS *
Fans of AI run amok should relish this one. * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY *
Apt and modern * SciFiNow *
Tobey brilliantly captures the immersive, claustrophobic atmosphere of the malign game and its addictive allure for a collection of flawed and needy characters * Guardian *
