For Doctor Stephen Swain and his daughter, Holly, it is the site of a nightmare. Because for one night this historic building is to be the venue for a contest. A contest in which Swain is to compete - whether he likes it or not.The rules are simple: Seven contestants will enter, only one will leave. With his daughter in his arms, Stephen Swain is plunged into a terrifying fight for survival. The stakes are high, the odds brutal. He can choose to run, to hide or to fight - but if he wants to live, he has to win. For in this contest, unless you leave as the victor, you do not leave at all. Download and start listening now!

    " First book I read by the author. Showcases his unique style of writing. Supposed to be making a movie out of this book. If they do, it will be something else!! "

    " After reading this, it was hard to believe Matt had a hard time getting this book published... Excellent storyline, fast paced and very gripping. I recommended the book to my mother-in-law and she cursed me for it. Seems she wasn't able to put the book down and lost a night's sleep for it. Definitely a must read for the "old school" sci-fi buffs out there. I found some themes that I haven't seen in 20+ years and I found that to be very enjoyable. I hope the movie script gets picked up and filmed, this would be a great story on the big screen. "

    " The blurb on the back cover really makes Contest sound appealing. Too bad it's only partially accurate. It starts off with a very "24-like" feel (trapped in a library, fighting bad guys for 24 hours) but when the aliens arrive, it goes off the rails. I finished it only because I was mildly curious how bad it was going to get. And it got plenty bad. "

    " very good, I am not sure if it is because I work in a libary and this is where the book takes place or what, but this was a really good story, and really creepy at times... "
