The Never Game is the first novel in a thrilling new series, and introduces the lead character of Colter Shaw. The son of a survivalist family, Shaw is an expert tracker. Now he makes a living as a "reward seeker," traveling the country to help police solve crimes and private citizens locate missing persons. But what seems a simple investigation quickly thrusts him into the dark heart of America's tech hub and the cutthroat billion-dollar video-gaming industry.

Shaw finds himself caught in a cat-and-mouse game, risking his own life to save the victims even as he pursues the kidnapper across both Silicon Valley and the dark net. Encountering eccentric game designers, trigger-happy gamers and ruthless tech titans, he soon learns that he isn't the only one on the hunt: someone is on his trail and closing fast.

Deaver is the author of more than 25 novels, some of those under the pseudonym William Jeffries. Click here to reserve a copy of The Never Game in hardcover, ebook, or mp3 audiobook download.

The surprising and dramatic life of the least known of King Henry VIII's wives is illuminated in the fourth volume in the Six Tudor Queens series, a historical romance cycle sure to entertain fans of the genre.

Newly widowed and the father of an infant son, Henry VIII realizes he must marry again to ensure the royal succession. Forty-six, overweight, and suffering from gout, Henry is soundly rejected by some of Europe's most eligible princesses. Anna of Kleve, from a small German duchy, is twenty-four, and has a secret she is desperate to keep hidden.

What follows is the fascinating story of an awkward royal union that somehow had to be terminated. Alison Weir takes a fresh and astonishing look at this remarkable royal marriage by describing it from the point of view of Queen Anna, a young woman with hopes and dreams of her own, alone and fearing for her life in a royal court that rejected her almost from the day she set foot on England's shore.

Reserve Anna of Kleve in hardcover or ebook and enjoy this new take on the enduring drama of the court of Henry VIII. Start the series over or read it for the first time starting with Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen.
