In his dazzling, award-winning debut GHOSTMAN , Hobbs introduced a fascinating lone wolf criminal anti-hero who quickly captured the imagination. His reappearance in the second novel in what looks to become a highly popular series is most welcome and sees Jack embroiled in a dark plot in South Asia with mortal consequences, when his old flame and mentor Angela becomes involved in a sea heist which brings into play a set of deadly adversaries of all provenance. Mostly set in the teeming, colourful depths of Macau, this high octane thriller's pace never tires and will keep you swept along, breathless, while all the threads and faster than light action unfolds. In addition to deepening our knowledge of Jack and Angela's past lives and casting a uselful light on their motivations, this first class chase caper brings Asia to life with an explosive rythm. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

Synopsis

Vanishing Games by Roger Hobbs

If you enjoyed I am Pilgrim, you'll love this. (Guardian). The perfect blend of a Lee Child novel and a Quentin Tarantino film, this is the latest from the bestselling author of Ghostman. I work alone. I may be the best thief in the world but no one will ever know a single thing about me. Well, almost no one. A lifetime ago I had a mentor, Angela. She taught me how to be a criminal, how to run a heist. And now, six years after she vanished and left me high and dry on a job in Kuala Lumpur, she's sent me an SOS. Or at least I think it's her. If it is, then I've got to go. I owe her that much. So soon I'll be on a plane to Macau, either to see a friend or walk into a trap. Or both. But that's the way I like it. Sometimes the only thing that makes me happy is risking my life. Time to go.
