THE RULES

1. Listen carefully
2. Do your research
3. Trust no one
4. Run for your life

Harriet Reed is newly engaged to Edward Holbeck, the heir to an extremely powerful American family.
When Edward's father hands her a tape of a book he's been working on, she is desperate to listen.
But as she presses play, it's clear that this isn't a novel. It's a confession to murder.
Feeling isolated and confused, Harriet must work out if this is all part of a plan to test her loyalty. Or something far darker.
Because this might be a game to the Holbeck family - but games can still be deadly.

READY OR NOT, HERE THEY COME . . .
