Publisher's Summary

Playing with Death is a gripping, edge-of-your seat contemporary thriller that marks a new direction for legendary historical novelist Simon Scarrow, writing with exciting new talent Lee Francis. Not to be missed by fans of David Baldacci and Michael Crichton.

Sometimes, the monster wins....

And FBI Special Agent Rose Blake knows it more than most. Haunted by a failed undercover mission, she is finding it hard to shake the memory of her close encounter with a ruthless serial killer - one who is still free and could come for her at any time.

The call to investigate a suspected arson attack is a welcome distraction. It's not the kind of case usually assigned to the FBI, but nothing about this crime is usual. As Rose digs deeper, she finds herself confronting the kind of imagination her son might see in the fantasy worlds of his video games.

And when your opponent is a killer, nothing feels like a game....

    "Average thriller with obvious plot "

    Good attempt by Scarrow to write something departed from the excellent Macro and Cato series. However while the concepts in this not-too-distant cyber thriller are interesting, the execution isn't great. There are some glaringly obvious plot 'twists' - 'Skin' being advertised in media, but none of the FBI guess that the victim is wearing one... As well as a few gaping holes in the story - Where did the fire that killed the first victim come from?

    I don't read many crime thrillers, preferring historical fiction, but I was able to guess the majority of the story from fairly early on. Diva is an interesting 'character' though if Scarrow is planning to continue this into a series of books 'she' has far too much power. One phone call from Rose and pretty much any bad guy can be located...

    In summary it was an interesting listen, but I won't rush to listen again. Back to Macro and Cato!
