The future is bleak and people are hard pressed to find a job. Most just try to survive day to day. Enter the Lomar Corporation. They decide to run a contest on a very private island. The winner of the contest can have anything they want.
Chase decides to enter, against his wife's wishes, because he needs to save his little girl who is dying of cancer. He, along with 5 other contestants, have no idea what they are in for. And not everyone is who they claim to be.
A cross between Jurassic Park, Survivor, and Hunger Games, this was a very enjoyable and engaging read. Recommended.
