Damien Banks believes that he's been given a fantastic opportunity to compete for two million pounds cash against eleven others in a ten-day reality show competition. But soon the sinister voice of "The Landlord" fills him and his housemates with dread as they realize that the stakes have changed and that they are now competing for their lives.

Fast-paced and incredibly entertaining, I really enjoyed this story. The characters are realistic and relatable. I pictured each one in my mind and quickly decided which ones were decent and which ones were unscrupulous. Then, situations changed and created uncertainty as to which characters were trustworthy. It added nicely to the suspense. I admit, I was definitely rooting for Damien.

I enjoyed the ending, though wish that Wright had further elaborated and provided more post-competition details. Then again, the way it ended, I wouldn't be surprised to find the story continued in a sequel. We can hope, anyway! :)
