Exploring obsession, addiction and the abuse of power, Philip’s debut novel, A Game for the Young, expertly toys with the idea of knowledge being a drug. After being accepted into Oxford University, Conor Martin finds himself thrust into an interviewing process like no other—with a chance to join an enigmatic team. This group of individuals have sacrificed the last two years of their lives to a project so important, it has the potential to change lives across the globe.

Now, they need Conor’s help.

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

A contemporary thriller dripping with realism; the tone of this story is strikingly gothic, and invites further questions on human behaviour and thought with every turn of the page.
