The gritty, riveting, highly anticipated sequel to the international bestseller Ghostman, by the critically acclaimed, award-winning Roger Hobbs.

It’s just before dawn on the South China Sea when three experienced pirates open fire on a small smuggling yacht. Their target: a bag of uncut sapphires worth millions. But when one of them stumbles across an enormous treasure that wasn’t on the manifest, everything goes sideways. Within minutes two of them are dead, leaving a coldblooded psychopath to claim both the sapphires and the mysterious bonus, in hopes of disappearing completely, as he’ll now have more money than anyone could ever spend.

His boss, Angela, isn’t about to let that happen, so she calls in a favor from her onetime protégé, a man with no real name, no address, no fingerprints—a man who can make anything (including himself) vanish. Sometimes known as Jack, or simply as a Ghostman. Angela happens to be the only person for whom he’d drop everything and fly halfway around the world. Given what she’s up against, he’s on the plane immediately and by her side in the glimmering neon slums of Macau, dodging local crime lords and a highly trained hit man. Soon they’re up to their necks in a conspiracy bigger than they’ve ever seen and more dangerous than they’ve ever imagined.

Their partnership—between people whose livelihood stipulates that they have no lasting relationships whatsoever—is at the very heart of a novel that will cement Roger Hobbs’s status as one of our most talented crime writers.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Swift, strong, and smart as hell.”

    Seattle Times

  • “Violent and riveting [with] a page-burner of a plot…Vanishing Games is meant to be read hard and fast, without slowing down…His command of the language allows the story to come off with brutal authenticity…Richard Stark (Donald E. Westlake), the king of heist books and creator of the enduring antihero Parker, finally has a worthy successor. And that’s saying something.”

    Arizona Republic

  • “Hobbs’ fantastic sequel to 2013’s Ghostman…Jack has no qualms about killing and does his share. Yet Hobbs stops the action, when he sees fit, in the most amazing fashion…Those who can stomach the graphic violence will find this an irresistible ride.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “The brilliant criminal mind of Hobbs’ debut, Ghostman, returns to stake his claim to some precious gems—and potentially bigger game…An entertaining romp.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Jake Weber brings out the sense of danger and drama in this novel—an international caper worthy of cinema screens…Weber’s bass pitch and raspy timbre work well, and his narrative pace is smooth as the story takes the listener from the mines of Africa to the cities of Asia. He makes the most of the plot’s twists and turns, which thriller lovers will appreciate. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
