    DescriptionTHE 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

    Review quote
    "Reilly hurls readers into an adrenaline-drenched thrill ride impossible to put down." --"Orlando Sentinel" "" "Swain is clever, resourceful, and quick. The action is non-stop this slam-bang story is great, good fun, and thoroughly entertaining." --"Tulsa World" "" "Reilly...can inspire awe. Speed demons, take note. " --"Publishers Weekly" "Compared to Matthew Reilly's "Temple" and his intrepid academic hero, Professor William Race, Indiana Jones is a wimp and The Raiders of The Lost Ark a snooze fest. Reilly's book has adrenaline in super-sized quantities." --"The Orlando Sentinel" on "Temple"
