A New York Times Book Review Top 10 Crime Novel of the Year From the bestselling and award-winning master of suspense, the first novel in a thrilling new series, introducing Colter Shaw. "You have been abandoned." A young woman has gone missing in Silicon Valley and her father has hired Colter Shaw to find her. The son of a survivalist family, Shaw is an expert tracker. Now he makes a living as a "reward seeker," traveling the country to help police solve crimes and private citizens locate missing persons. But what seems a simple investigation quickly thrusts him into the dark heart of America's tech hub and the cutthroat billion-dollar video-gaming industry. "Escape if you can." When another victim is kidnapped, the clues point to one video game with a troubled past--The Whispering Man. In that game, the player has to survive after being abandoned in an inhospitable setting with five random objects. Is a madman bringing the game to life? "Or die with dignity." Shaw finds himself caught in a cat-and-mouse game, risking his own life to save the victims even as he pursues the kidnapper across both Silicon Valley and the dark 'net. Encountering eccentric game designers, trigger-happy gamers and ruthless tech titans, he soon learns that he isn't the only one on the hunt: someone is on his trail and closing fast. The Never Game proves once more why "Deaver is a genius when it comes to manipulation and deception" (Associated Press).

Amir, Los, and Ashely had been friends for as long as they could remember. They had formed a bond that was rare for people that lived in separate households and were not blood related. Los’s family ties to a dangerous organization in California connected the three friends to the streets where they eventually formed their own organization. The Black Border Brothers was formed, and Amir and Los maneuvered drugs, weapons, and currency through the dregs of the streets in Kansas and Missouri. With success comes jealousy, deceit, and hatred. Their organization began colliding with others, and they were forced to defend what they had built at all costs. The M.O.P. was a major factor in Kansas City, the Italians were the Black Border Brothers gateway to receiving their drugs, and the Jamaicans were funding their foes with loads of currency. These three organizations were a constant threat to their survival. Through all of this, the three friends struggled with their relationships and attempted to balance their personal lives with the murder and mayhem that the Black Border Brothers were causing in the streets. They also struggled with remaining friends through their fears, dreams, and adversities. Amir and Los were two males with conflicting personalities, and it was difficult to remember the blood pact they had forged as children when money, sex, and murder was a constant distraction in Kansas City- the dangerous place that they called home.
