Volcano day – The Coercion Game publishes
It’s here! We actually launched a little earlier than planned but I really like the fact that the real first day of sales is the 29th of February – a day that only exists once every four years.
It’s already had one published review, and here’s a sample from the reviewing team at Readers’ Favorite:
“Magnus Booth’s international thriller, The Coercion Game: Umbra Sumus, Book 1, is deceptively smooth and quite easy to get thoroughly wrapped up in. Set in the late 1990s, amidst the turmoil surrounding the return of Hong Kong and Macau to mainland China, this story boasts an intricate and labyrinthine plot and the perfect noir hero to puzzle it out. Fans of Arturo Pérez-Reverte’s literary thriller, The Dumas Club, and John Le Carre’s Cold War novels will find their appetites teased and provoked by this work that captures the distinctly different genres of each and somehow blends them into something marvelous and magical. The setting in Macau is inspired, and I loved following Chris Lee as he chases the faintest of leads in his quest to avenge Annie’s death and find the cache of gold that is at the heart of the mystery of the book. I read this book slowly and deliberately, not wanting to miss a thing as Chris works out codes, tests his mettle against a host of formidable opponents, and manages somehow to be world-weary and dynamic at the same time. The Coercion Game is a marvelous read filled with action, intrigue and mystery, and it’s most highly recommended.”
You can grab your copy here and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Feel free to leave a review on Amazon’s book page and if you do post a review elsewhere then please let me know. MB
