On a small Caribbean island a woman joins the newest reality TV show: 24/7. For Dana Kirsten, winning the $2 million prize could mean saving her childâ s life. But while the country watches her every move, Dana is entering a fight for her own lifeâ and a conflict that will shake the world. . . .
Vassa Island has been rigged with remote control cameras, a surveillance satellite system, and the most powerful television transmitter ever created. And thatâ s not all. For a small fee, anyone with a computer can access any of the 638 cameras live twenty-four hours a day, seven days a weekâ and vote as twelve carefully chosen contestants struggle with each other and the island. But only fifteen minutes into the first live broadcast, the showâ s host and crew die a ghastly death. The shell-shocked contestants hear a voice echoing from hidden speakers: â I am Control, and this has just become the ultimate reality show.â
Suddenly the voice is hurtling the contestants through a maze of traps and macabre, individually designed puzzles. And when the world-wide audience votes one person off the island, it isnâ t just a loss . . . itâ s death.
With every day unveiling a new terror, and as one man from the outside races to crack the Vassa mystery, the only real way to win 24/7 is to find Control. And stop him. But Control has plans beyond the desert island, spinning a dark plot that could hold the entire world hostage in a grip of death.
A thrilling, original mix of action, mystery, and reality TV gone wild, 24/7 will grip readers from the first page to the last, as it builds relentlessly to an explosive finale.
