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 child’s life. But while the country watches her every move, Dana is entering a fight for her own life–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 that’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 week–and vote as twelve carefully chosen contestants struggle with each other and the island. But only fifteen minutes into the first live broadcast, the show’s host and crew die a ghastly death. The shell-shocked contestants hear a voice echoing from hidden speakers: “I am Control, and this has just become the ultimate reality show.”

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 isn’t just a loss . . . it’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.
