THE CONTEST: YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE COME TRUE

Dr. Stephen Swain has found himself locked in the after-hours darkness of the New York Public Library. It isn't a mistake. He's been entombed in the historic sanctuary for a reason--as the guest of an unknown host, chosen for a night of fun and games. He's unprepared. He's afraid. And he's not alone.

Six other contestants roam the black halls, room by room, floor by floor, in the dead silence. Each strapped with an explosive set to detonate should they escape before the night is over. The terms are simple: seven players enter--only one will leave.

Now Swain must navigate the labyrinth to outwit the unknown moves of his mysterious opponents, and to outlast the unimaginable dangers that await him. Against insurmountable odds the contest has begun. Should he win, the greatest, most unfathomable terror lies at the night's end: the very reason behind the game...

A fast-paced adventure story that kind of resembles something Michael Crichton might write. It's nothing literary, but just a fun read if you're wanting something quick.

I thought it was disappointing. The introduction makes its sound like a great read and the plot is not bad, but the writing style of the author didn't pull me into the story. By the end I was struggling to finish the book

Excellent Read. Both my son and I enjoyed this very much. I am circling back after reading the Jack West series that are released.
Can't wait for the next one!!!
