This thrilling second novel by the author of No Immunity will keep readers guessing until the very end. It is 2005, and the eve of the Chinese New Year in Singapore. There is violence in Indonesia, a confrontation between Japan and North Korea, and mounting tension between Iran and the West. The British High Commissioner's daughter, Marina Singleton, vanishes with a consignment of smuggled heroin, leaving an innocent man to face the death penalty. Andrew Singleton himself then disappears from a nearby Indonesian island, following a clandestine assignation with his mistress. A demand is received for the release of terrorists detained in Singapore, but is there more to Singleton's disappearance? Where is Marina? And how did the kidnappers know where to find Singleton? Adam White, Head of Chancery at the High Commission, embarks on a perilous path to try to solve these mysteries. Meanwhile, Singleton, confronting the past he has been avoiding, learns of a sinister plot to plunge the world into nuclear conflict. Will he be able to get a warning to those concerned in time?
A Game That Must Be Lost will draw fans of high-octane thrillers into a story that twists and turns until the final pages, in which the interlocking pieces of a complex and terrifying game fall into place.
