But Marc and Jesse aren’t the only ones on the hunt, as old enemies resurface to try and beat them to the treasure… And even if they reach it first, they must ask themselves – do they really want to give a Russian gangster $400 million to pursue his deadly enterprises? And what would be the consequences if they don’t?
The pursuit will take them through the museums of Tokyo, the streets of Buenos Aires, and the coast of Mexico, in a desperate and dangerous race to keep the fortune in digital gold from the hands of all their enemies…

Marc smiled as he made clinking sounds in the galley of his private jet. He already had the black slacks on, so it was the work of a moment to take off his polo shirt and slip into the white epauletted button-down short-sleeve shirt of a steward. The wings were already attached to the lapels, and he’d even had a name tag made.
“Here you go, sir,” he said as he handed Jesse his drink on a tray. Jesse was already involved in something on his phone, and he absentmindedly reached for it.
Then he paused, sensing that something had changed. He looked up to see Marc dressed as an airline steward, his eyes dancing with heat.
Marc didn’t smile as he said, “Is there anything else I can get you, sir?”
Jesse swallowed. “Maybe a warm blanket.”
Marc took the drink from his hand. He pressed a button on the side of Jesse’s chair.
“The seat fully reclines into a bed, sir. Let me make you comfortable.”
As the seat back flattened and the base lifted Jesse’s feet up, Marc pushed another button, and the chair’s arms lowered out of the way, which gave him room to straddle Jesse’s hips.
He put his hands on Jesse’s chest, and Jesse reached up to finger his collar. “How did you earn those wings, steward?”
Marc idly stroked Jesse’s hand where it lingered on the wings. “Oh, those, sir? For achieving membership in the Mile High Club. Are you a member?” Marc began to grind his ass against Jesse’s crotch, feeling the transformation below his slacks.
“You know, I am not. I’ve never been invited to join.”
Marc leaned in to whisper in his ear. “Let me be the first to welcome you, then.”

Meet the Author
Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Brad Vance, author of “Strength in Numbers,” the second book in the “Game Players” series, after “Would I Lie to You?”
Hi Brad, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Thank you for having me!
Tell us about some of your cherished childhood memories.
I’ve always been a huge reader, and a mostly solitary person. So like a lot of writers, my best memories are of the time I had to read whatever I wanted to. My parents were pretty hands-off as long as the homework was done, so I had a “free range childhood.” I started working after school jobs when I was 14, back when nobody was too worked up about documentation. The first one was in a used bookstore. It was never very busy – my job was mostly to look through ABA catalogs and find books we had that we could sell to other book dealers. So I got paid to read, mostly!
Then one summer I worked in a Fotomat booth, same thing – 90% of my time was spent reading on the job. And then in high school, I worked evenings at the county library, shelving books. I was so good at it that I could spend 10 minutes shelving a cart full of books and then 10 minutes reading in the corner of the stacks, and still be faster than the rest of the employees. Clearly I was going to need an adult job that let me read for a living.
The only trouble I ever got into was when I found a book that was too good. I remember being so in love with Richard Adams’ “Shardik,” which was a huge book for me at the time at 600 pages, that I neglected my homework. Why on earth would I ever want to do math problems when I could read this book! I never got to finish it – my parents took it away from me because I was clearly falling behind at school. I guess that’s a pretty happy childhood, overall, if that’s one of my saddest memories, huh?
