The Vanishing Game by William Boyd

A down-on-his luck actor is paired with a weather-battered Land Rover Defender on a seemingly innocuous courier job. But some things are too good to be true and this innocent journey quickly unfolds into a dangerous plot with a shadowy cast of characters.
This book started out great, fantastic even. I wish the author would’ve taken a little more time to develop the story and characters though. It was like we were being thrown right into the life of some dude. Also, it seemed it a little whack that he would take that job, I mean you’d think he’d know better and that something was a little fishy. It bugged me a lot how everything he knew was from being in a movie. It was like he never had any real life experience in anything and wanted to make his movies his reality. I give this book a 3/5 stars.
