Book Review: A Caller's Game by J.D. Barker

A Caller's Game by J.D. Barker book cover

AD* | “I’m going to offer you a choice.”

Controversial satellite radio talk show host, Jordan Briggs, has clawed her way to the top of the broadcast world. She doesn’t hold back, doesn’t spare feelings, and has no trouble sharing what’s on her mind. Her rigorous pursuit of success has come at a price, though. Her marriage is in ruins, she hasn’t spoken to her mother in years, and she’s distanced herself from all those close to her. If not for her young daughter, Charlotte, her personal life would be in complete shambles.

When a subdued man calls into the show and asks to play a game, she sees it as nothing more than a way to kick-start the morning, breathe life into the beginnings of drive-time for her listeners. Against her producer’s advice, she agrees, and unwittingly opens a door to the past.

Live on the air with an audience of millions, what starts out as a game quickly turns deadly - events long thought buried resurface and Jordan Briggs is forced to reconcile with one simple fact - all decisions have consequences.

A Caller's Game is one of the tensest books I've read in a long time! 

Full to the brim with suspense, shocks and surprises, this is a well-paced thriller that sucks you in right from the very start. As the tension escalates and the stakes climb higher and higher, your heart will be in your mouth as you turn the pages. 

The book has a unique premise that instantly hooks you in. Radio show host Jordan Briggs is confident yet controversial, and as she encounters Bernie - a caller who wants to play a game - it isn't long before Jordan is sucked into the most dangerous game of her life.

As Jordan is forced to confront her past, Bernie gives her seemingly impossible choices with devastating consequences. With everything she knows and holds dear on the line, Jordan gets sucked into her caller's deadly game.

Jordan is accompanied by her loyal producer, Billy, and NYPD cop Cole. These three make an unlikely trio, but they are forced together by Bernie and must work together if they want to survive. It's action-packed and intense, yet also features elements of the horror and psychological thriller genres.

Unsettling and suspenseful, A Caller's Game is a top-notch thriller and another success story from bestselling author J.D. Barker.
