I'm not sure why this book is given 3 stars. This was a great read. It was full of twists and turns and kept me guessing until the end.
Wow! A real thriller. Can't wait to read his next book.
This is my second Larry Brooks novel. While I liked Darkness Bound better, Pressure Point is also a good novel. Without giving away any spoilers, I think I liked this less well simply because no one was safe in this novel. It wasn't just the bad guys who died. Characters I liked also died. That, however, is also one of things that makes this a very tense read. Based on what I've read, Brooks' stories are full of reversals and hairpin turns. You're never going quite where you think you're going. I'm now officially working my way through his backlist. Anyone who likes Harlan Coben will probably also like Brooks.
THE game is a weeklong retreat. It's located in a remote region of northern California. It's designed to build teamwork, establish trust, and increase awareness.
The Players are three ambitious executives-one woman and two men, each prepared to put his physical, mental, and moral limits to the test. They never dreamed how far they could go.
The Rules ...are simple. First you run. Then you hide. Don't appear weak, don't admit to the fear, and don't react to the pain.
The Prize...is staying alive. Let the game begin.
A work retreat to help build teamwork and trust is actually a game of survival. Lots of ups and downs. A rollar coaster ride to the very end, and not the kiddie ride mind you!~
