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

Harriet Reed, a novelist on the brink of literary stardom, is newly engaged to Edward Holbeck, the heir to an extremely powerful family. And even though he’s long tried to severed ties with them, news of their marital bliss has the Holbecks inching back into their lives.
 
As Harriet is drawn into their lavish world, they seem perfectly welcoming. And when Edward’s father hands Harriet 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 just a novel. It’s a confession.
 
A confession to a grisly crime. A murder. And suddenly, the game is in motion.
 
Feeling isolated and confused, Harriet must work out if this is part of a plan to test her loyalty. Or something far darker. What is it that he sees in her? Why give her the power to destroy everything?
 
This might be a game to the Holbeck family—but losing games can still be deadly.
 
READY OR NOT, HERE THEY COME . . .
