Description

"A deliciously creepy novel revolving around a terrific paradigm shift: The job you think you're doing? That's not the job you're really doing." --Chris Pavone, New York Times bestselling author of The Expats

"Agatha Christie meets George Orwell in journalist Avdic's unsettling first novel. . . . Avdic not only constructs a fascinating and original plot but makes her imagined reality chillingly plausible." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A high-stakes test of survival and betrayal . . . Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None crossed-pollinated with 'The Most Dangerous Game' . . . An unsettling portrait of our possible future." --Kirkus Reviews

"An Orwellian debut novel that never lets up . . . A heady mix of And Then There Were None and The Hunger Games [and] a supremely competitive struggle for survival." --Booklist

"Intriguing . . . Reminiscent of classic 'locked room' mysteries by writers like Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers and P. D. James. But its near-future setting and Orwellian setup make it feel almost chillingly forward-looking as well." --Bookreporter

"With a scary dystopia core and a foreboding that lurks on every page, this is terrifying stuff." --Heat

"Resembling Agatha Christie at her zaniest, this fascinating, ever-changing scenario is deftly and grippingly handled." --The Sunday Times (London)
