A New York Times Bestselling Author
When a young woman goes missing, her father hires expert tracker Colter Shaw to find her. Shaw's investigation quickly leads to the billion-dollar video-gaming industry - with clues pointing to The Whispering Man video game, in which the player must survive abandonment in an inhospitable setting with only five random objects. Is a madman bringing the game to life? Shaw finds himself caught in a cat-and-mouse game as he pursues the kidnapper across both Silicon Valley and the dark �net. Encountering eccentric game designers, trigger-happy gamers, and ruthless tech titans, Shaw learns that he isn't the only one on the hunt: someone is on his trail and closing fast.
