9780385352642: Vanishing Games

The gritty, riveting, highly anticipated sequel to the national (and international) best seller Ghostman, by the critically acclaimed and award-winning Roger Hobbs

It s just before dawn on the South China Sea when three experienced pirates open fire on a small smuggling yacht. Their target: a bag of uncut sapphires worth millions. But when one of them stumbles across an enormous treasure that wasn t on the manifest, everything goes sideways. Within minutes two of them are dead, leaving the third, a coldblooded psychopath, to claim both the sapphires and the mysterious windfall for himself. If he disappears, he won t just be wealthy. He ll have the power to change the course of history.
His boss, Angela, isn t about to let that happen. She calls in a favor from her onetime protege: a fixer sometimes known as Jack, or more often as simply the Ghostman. Within hours he s flying halfway around the world to find her in the glimmering neon slums of Macau. Jack has no real name, no address and no fingerprints but given the right motivation, he can make serious problems vanish. Though the two haven t talked since they botched a job six years ago, as soon as Jack s off the plane they re back together again, facing down a crime boss, a hit man and a conspiracy bigger than anything they ve ever encountered and more dangerous than they could ve imagined.
Their partnership between people with no lasting relationships whatsoever is at the very heart of a novel that will cement Roger Hobbs s status as one of our most talented crime writers."

Review:

Meaty, violent and riveting [with] a page-burner of a plot...."Vanishing Games "is meant to be read hard and fast, without slowing down....Hobbs has skillfully loaded this book with detail, device and distractions [and] his command of the language allows the story to come off with brutal authenticity.... Richard Stark (Donald E. Westlake), the king of heist books and creator of the enduring antihero Parker, finally has a worthy successor. And that's saying something. Robert Anglen, "The Arizona Republic"
Swift, strong, and smart as hell. Adam Woog, "Seattle Times"
Amazing. . . an irresistible ride. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Roger Hobbs isn t a writer to watch he d already blasted past most other novelists, leaving them sucking foam and flailing around in his wake. He s the guy out on the dark horizon, showing us how fierce and smart and shock thrillers can be. I m in awe. Duane Swierczynski"

An exhilaratingly swift-moving crime novel [and] a guilt-free guilty pleasure. . . . [Hobbs] is one of the most informative crime novelists working today. Doug Childers, "Richmond-Times Dispatch"

The fast-paced plot, peppered with details that bring each scene to bloody life, is a thrill. Vanishing Games is a keeper, and a sign that Hobbs is more than a one-hit wonder. Claire Rudy Foster, The Oregonian
Tighter even than Ghostman, Vanishing Games has the confidence and brio of Terry Hayes s I Am Pilgrim. . . . The opening chapter is one of the most deftly choreographed bits of suspense writing I ve read. John O Connell, The Guardian (U.K.)
