But I've never been into games since I stopped playing Monopoly and Clue as a pre-teen, so I admit I had my doubts at first about The Game Master. Would it be full of gaming trivia that would turn me off? Not so. Bernhardt pulls the reader in with the first chapter about a young woman running for her life. As the plot develops, the game becomes one threatening human existence, with continual plot turns and settings that take the reader around the world.
Bernhardt, best known for his Ben Kincaid series of legal thrillers (and I'm not the only one eagerly awaiting Ben's promised return), has displayed his versatility with such works as Nemesis and Dark Eye. The Game Master once again proves this writing master's ability to spin a plot that keeps the pages turning — or, in the Kindle version, tapping the screen to move to the next one.
My recommendation? Read it and enjoy finding out for yourself how the game master reacts to each dilemma he encounters.
All that said, the book moves very well and kept me guessing till the very end. An okay read for a lazy weekend. Makes me curious to try his other novels, which look more well received.
In this fast-paced thriller which merges the gaming world with geopolitics, the players plan to win at any cost. Nothing is sacred, not even life itself under this win-at-all-costs philosophy.
BB and his ex-wife Linden have 48 hours to find their kidnapped daughter or she’s dead. Game clues lead them from country to country. Many times the odds seem impossibly stacked against them. Old friends, new enemies, and the long arm of the law become threats as the clock winds down.
Everyone appears to have a secret advisor, so who’s really in charge of this game?
Detailed and engaging. I had to know what happened next.

Ran across a couple of typos in the Kindle edition, but those were the only real issues. Wish I could have enlarged a couple of the game graphics for a better view (reading on a Kindle Fire HD 6).
The story is a blend of people with a long history with each other, some times goo other times bad. This is combined with a look at geopolitical issues, ranging from ancient history to current events. These two concepts are woven together, mixed with advanced computers and result in a great story.
