Vanishing Games opening line: A few hours before dawn on the morning of his last job, Sabo Park got down on his belly next to the rifle on the bow of his fishing boat, eased forward into a comfortable shooting position and flipped open the lens cap on his night-vision scope.
Sabo Park discovers something more than he had bargained for and his crime results in Angela calling for help from someone she has not been in contact with for 6 years. Six years previously, a heist gone wrong resulted in Angela abandoning Jack. Now she has sent him a message asking for help. And because she was Jack’s mentor he does not think twice about travelling half way across the world to risk his life to save hers.
This book is well written with the criminal underworld of Macau clearly explained. The pace is fast and full of action and interesting tit bits of knowledge shared along the way. You won’t want to put it down and I reckon Roger Hobbs is an author worth keeping a look out for.
