“Often exciting and absorbing, with a tough, hard-boiled style…,[Game Theory] combines the…atmosphere of pulp detective fiction with future-tech gizmos and accompanying paranoia… engaging and well-written.” Kirkus Reviews
“GAME THEORY is both a thoroughly enjoyable mystery and a thought-provoking look at what our world might look like in fifty – or maybe twenty – years.” 4.5/5 stars – IndieReader
It’s the future. Technology is changing the world. But change often comes with a high price. Nobody knows that better than detective Jack Waldron—technology killed his five-year-old daughter and caused his bitter divorce. Wracked with guilt, he drowns himself in whiskey and spends his off-duty hours in a virtual world he created to mirror the life he used to live. But when his ex-wife is brutally raped and murdered, everything changes.
Forcing his way into the case, Jack realizes her murder wasn’t the sex crime everyone believes it was. There’s more—much more. As he digs deeper, he uncovers a trail of clues that point to a conspiracy at the top of the world’s most powerful corporation. While the body count rises, the dangers mount. Before it’s over, Jack is forced to confront his dark past and fight to stay alive against a sinister plot that threatens all of humanity.

Thank you The Fiction Café-Review and William Lange for this arc.
I hope there’s more to come and this becomes a series!
The story is well written, suspenseful, and filled with believable characters. I could not put this book I had to see what was coming next. The author references a website in the novel and has actually created that site in real life. It was a very nice touch to draw you into the story and consider the possibility that the author’s version of the future could actually happen. The main character in this book was Jack, and I was trying to figure what would happen next, and when I thought I had it I was way off. This book was full of suspense and thrills. I have to admit that I am not into sci-f- thrillers but this was a great book. If you haven’t read this you’re missing out on a great book.
