The Never Game by Jeffery Deaver


Title: The Never Game

Author: by Jeffery Deaver

The Never Game is the first book in a series about Colter Shaw.  He is not a P.I, not a bounty hunter, but he is in the business of rescuing people.  He travels the country in an R.V and has a network of friends who keep him in the loop when someone goes missing and a reward is offered.  (Though he often works for free as well).  

I enjoyed this book but thought it ran a little long.  This may be because it was the first book in the series so you were getting a lot of backstory.  The main plot of this one is some kidnappings in Silicone Valley that seem to be associated with video games.  I got to learn a little more about the video game world, which was interesting as I have a teenage son who likes to game.  We also get to learn about Colter's upbringing and a 15-year-old event that has haunted him.  This is the backstory and I believe will be the arc that runs through the first books, if not the entire series.  

There was one thing that was irritating to me.  Colter would come to these conclusions or would learn a new fact - but would not tell you what it was.  It would be revealed by his future actions and would change the storyline.  I plan on reading more books in this series though, so I am sure this is something that I will get used to.

I think I'll pass on this one, Colter not revealing what he knew right away would irritate me.
