Review:

"Henrik 'HP' Pettersson, the hero of de la Motte's high-tech trilogy that began with Game, doubles down in installment two, as he matches wits with the ruthless powers behind 'the Game,' an alternate-reality game he was lured into playing four months earlier. In Dubai, HP meets Anna Argos, the glamorous cofounder of ArgosEye, an IT consultancy company in Stockholm, who disappears. HP risks returning home to Stockholm, where he goes undercover at ArgosEye in hopes of discovering, among other things, what connection Anna might have with the game. Meanwhile, HP's sister, Rebecca Normén, finds herself suspended from Sweden's Security Police while fighting trumped-up charges, as well as targeted by a mystery blogger who may be stalking her. As the dual story lines pinball off one another, the author, an IT security consultant, provides an insider's peek at stealth corporate manipulation of social media while maximizing the rush of this heady, hallucinatory trip.

Synopsis:

In the second installment in a new international thriller trilogy, a young man is on the run to escape a “game” that blurs the lines between reality and fiction.

It’s been four months since he was dragged into the Alternative Reality Game that nearly cost him his life, and HP is still on the run. He has everything he ever wished for—freedom, money, and no responsibilities, but he still isn’t happy. Plagued by insomnia and paranoia, HP misses the rush and attention of The Game. Sometimes he almost wishes the Game Master would find him.

In Dubai, HP meets Anna Argos, a sophisticated and beautiful Swedish IT millionaire. When she disappears, HP is questioned by the police. Fearing he has been found by The Game, HP returns to Sweden after being released from custody. Determined to uncover the truth about Anna’s disappearance, HP uses a fake identity to apply for a job at ArgosEye, the company Anna worked for. In the business of online information management, ArgosEye is involved in some questionable practices, under the control of Anna’s husband, the CEO Philip Argos.

Meanwhile, HP’s sister Rebecca has started dating Philip Argos. When she unknowingly reveals her brother’s real identity to Philip, the police try to bring HP in for questioning again. On the run again, HP refuses to give up and tries to uncover what is really happening at ArgosEye. Before he can find the truth, HP is stopped in his tracks. Thinking he’s about to be thrown in prison, HP is taken to the outskirts of the city and left in the woods, where an elderly man hands him a piece of paper. HP believes the game is over, but is it really just beginning?
