Summary

The New York Public Library looms as a silent sanctuary of knowledge: a hundred-year-old labyrinth of towering bookcases, narrow aisles, and spiral staircases. But for Dr Stephen Swain and his eight-year-old daughter, Holly, it is a place of nightmare. Because, for just one night, this historic building is to become the venue for a horrifying alien contest, a contest in which Swain must compete, whether he likes it or not.The rules of the challenge are simple: seven contestants will enter, but 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 are brutal. He can choose to run, to hide, or to fight. But if he wants to live, he needs to win - for in this particular contest, unless you leave as victor, you do not leave at all.

Critic reviews

"Offers constant, nail-biting action, but not a lot of reverence for one of New York City's greatest public institutions." (Publishers Weekly)
