Murder is such a buzz kill. . . .
It’s been fourteen months since HP Pettersson was dragged into a ruthless Alternate Reality Game that nearly cost him his life. Although he now has everything he ever wished for—freedom, money, and no responsibilities—he isn’t satisfied. He’s plagued by insomnia and paranoia, and misses the adrenaline rush of the Game. He misses the attention. At times, he even hopes the Game Master will find him. And when HP catches the eye of a rich and powerful CEO for all the wrong reasons, he may get his wish. But he quickly learns that sometimes, you have to be careful what you wish for . . .
As fast-paced and action-filled as the first. HP is hiding from The Game, but still sees them everywhere. He's afraid, yet still misses it. Again, alternates POV with Rebecca who is having some troubles of her own. Where their stories cross is again very unexpected. The whole story keeps you guessing. Unclear what is The Game and what is not. There are still plenty of questions to be cleared up and I look forward to the third and final installment.
