A GAME FOR THE YOUNG

THE STORY

For the past two years Ellie Swanson and a team of scientists have devoted their lives to a project. An experiment destined to change the course of history.

When their funding is pulled on the eve of their biggest discovery, the team are left with a choice; abandon everything they have worked towards or continue on in secret.

Conor Martin is a young man, full of hope, beginning his journey at St John’s College, Oxford. With a curious nature and a point to prove, he becomes caught up in an interviewing process like no other.

As paths collide and the true potential of the project is revealed, the impact of their creation is suddenly shaken, concluding in a chilling discovery that will change their lives forever.

“Curious insight into a topical mind. A little chilling in places. Fascinating!”

fivestars
“I love this book! It’s thought provoking and packed full of twists and turns. A great read.”

fourstars
“Packed full of thought-provoking ideas, daring night-time information raids and enough secrets to fill a dozen spy novels, A Game for the Young is deep, insightful and incredibly clever. Science enthusiasts will enjoy its focus on research and experimentation, but there is something for all readers in this novel. The twists and turns are sharp, unexpected and thrilling and will draw the reader in until the final, gripping line.”

fourandahalfstars
“A brilliantly written book that grips you right from the start. The fascinating and ethically challenging plot makes it very hard to put down. A fabulous first novel and looking forward to the next one.”

fivestars
“One of those books you look forward to picking up all the time… Looking forward to book number two as the first book was brilliant!”

fivestars
“I could not put this book down. The author has clearly done a considerable amount of research and made a compelling, worrying and fascinating read.”

fivestars
“Excellent first book from this author. Tempo builds to a real page turner, with twists and turns right up to the last chapter. It will give you a detailed insight into the lives of Oxford students trying to cope with the pressures and moral dilemmas brought on by a truly life changing discovery. I strongly recommend this as a must read and look forward to the next book.”

fourstars
“A well paced and engaging read. Characters have unique and individual voices. Some interesting themes are explored here and questions asked regarding the ethics and morality of enhancing the human being’s natural capacity through scientific means. 4* as I would have liked it to be longer (because I was enjoying it thoroughly)… maybe I am just being greedy.”

fivestars
“A gripping read taking you through the lives, past and present of a group of students on a mission to change the future and the world we live in, with underlying secrets that bring the book to life! The mysterious build up to how the inquisitive main character becomes involved in this project reflects how i felt as a reader and why this book could not be put down. It has a perfect balance of information to make it compelling read but holds enough back for the impact of the final twist. I look forward to the next novel!”

fivestars
“Definite worth a read! I had a hard time putting it down! Can’t wait to read the next novel! Always love a fiction I can actually learn something from, research and detail brilliant.”

fivestars
“Couldn’t put this down – best book I’ve read for years.. intriguing from the start, gripping, very well written – whens the next one out?!”

fivestars
“Absolutely brilliant story. A book which one cannot put down for a moment once into it. I have passed it on to be read by others. Beautifully written and deserves to be a film or a TV thriller. Well done David and look forward to the next one. This is 5*”

fivestars
“This is a good read. An interesting storyline with plenty of plot twists. I agree with an earlier reviewer, this would make a great movie script!”

DAVID P. PHILIP

David lives with his wife and daughter in a village on the south coast of England.

Fascinated by stories that explore the brain and challenge human behaviour; David’s first novel ‘A Game For The Young’ was written following months of research in the field of cognitive neuroscience.

His story contains themes of obsession, addiction and abuse of power, but at its heart it toys with the idea of knowledge being a drug. A theme David is keen to explore.

Currently working on his next project, David is hoping ‘A Game For The Young’ will be his first of many novels.
