I had never heard of this author, or the title. It was a fun read! A little gory if I remember correctly- I loved it!

How about a reality show where you do not get just voted off? It is not just a loss.... It is death.
Edge of the seat scary!!

On a small Caribbeanisland a woman joins the newest reality show: 24/7. For Dana Kirsten, winning the $2 million prize could mean saving her child's life. But only fifteen minutes into the first live broadcast, the show's host and crew die a ghastly death. The shell-shocked contestants hear a voice echoing from hidden speakers: " I am Control, and this has just become the ultimate reality show". Suddenly the boice is hurtling them through a maze of traps and macabre. individually designed puzzles. And when the worldwide audience votes one person off the island, it isn't just a's death.
A great story, it keeps you turning the pages.

Loved this books. A reality "Survivor" show that turns deadly. Impossible to put down.

This was close to the best thriller I have read this year, up until the last 10 pages that wrapped this story up in an impossible bow to the point where it was just sickening. I rated a 4.5 because up until the end I was so hooked that I read this in two evenings and couldn't read fast enough. If it had ended more believably then it would be a five star and by far the best book this year, but I think that the author could not forsee a way out and just jotted down whatever he thought would work and then that was it. In any case, it is an excellent thriller it just falls flat at the end.

A very intense, edge-of your-seat thriller! It grabbed me at the start but the further you read the more it is impossible to put down. A fun, scary roller coaster ride filled with twists and turns to the very end!
