Six people have been chosen at random. Without their knowledge, Kathy, Mario, Garry, Hannah, Robert and Julia are about to participate in the ultimate game of manipulation.
A stranger brings them together, but can this ruthless puppeteer really be held responsible for the choices they make? In the end, who is to blame for their actions: for their deceit, infidelity and crime?
At the heart of this thought-provoking novel lie questions of fate and self-determination.
PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
‘… compelling thought -provoking and darkly funny.’ Subiaco Post
‘… Glickman crafts an ensemble of varied and distinct characters for his lucky six but his greatest trick is making the reader complicit in the Master Plan of his narrator — while you know full well that this expert manipulator is a high-functioning sociopath you ought to loathe, you’ll be just as keen as he is to see how his plan pans out.’ Scoop Magazine
‘Glickman’s debut novel shows us how psychologically the human species is so vulnerable to manipulation and how easily we can succumb to our own egocentric and emotional indulgences.’ Launceston Examiner
