Synopsis of A Caller’s Game

In A Caller’s Game, 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 review

Wow! So far it’s fabulous. I’ve reached 50% of the book and I think it’s great. And even more so since it seems that we already know everything and there’s still half of the book left to read. Will maintain this level until the end? If it doesn’t end at this point, what else can we expect?

As always, J. D. Barker immerses us in a great story, beautifully told and crafted. At least until now.

In addition, he narrates everything as if he were talking about someone going to the supermarket, as if it were the most normal thing in the world, and makes it believable. A murderer who anticipates everything and has everything under control down to the smallest detail. Keep in mind that the mess that occurs in New York is in the style of 9/11.

I can’t wait to see if the ending meets the expectations of the reader. I’ll keep you on the loop.

Cole is the equivalent of Bruce Willis in Die Hard, he even says the same phrase “Think, Cole, think”. I’m loving it. Be careful, that doesn’t detract from any emotion or detracts from the novel in any way. I think it’s a great detail. I don’t know if it was done on purpose or not.

I’ve already finished it. It remains at the same level though some things do end up being a little, not much, predictable. For example, a person who I thought was involved from the beginning, was.

And I can’t say much more. I wish we could read many more books of this quality.
