LOVED IT!!!!! I can't wait until April of 2012 when the second book in the trilogy comes out! Very suspensful at every turn of the page! It had me on my toes, even when I thought I figured out what was going on, another surprise came into the story! This book was a cross of 2 movies: Saw and Hostel...... I loved the story-line and I liked the characters in it. Swartwood really makes the reader guess what is going to happen at the end and if Ben will ever see his wife and daughter again. I also kept wondering who the heck Simon was and how Ben got into this whole mess. Although some of my questions were answered I know I will have to read the next book to have more questions answered. I simply devoured this book. It was a fast read not only because of it having such few pages, but because it was very suspensful. If you liked trying to figure out the puzzles from the Saw movies and you liked the gore in the Hostel movies then this book is for you!!! Mr. Robert Swartwood I am a fan now!
