Jack and Stephanie are on their way to a hopeless marriage counseling session when things take a turn for the supernatural. They end up in an Inn, but the owners aren’t the normal sort and neither is the house. There’s a serial killer on the loose and he’s in their area. In fact, he’s closer than they know! Now they’re trapped in his game. This game spins on death. Jack and Stephanie along with Randy and Leslie, another couple stranded in the area, have to decide which one of them will die so the rest may live. That’s the rule. Give the serial killer, Barsidious White, one dead body and he might not kill everyone. They’re told not to go into the basement, but have no other choice. The basement holds a mind bending reality where this couple will have to answer a difficult question: “Who would I kill so I can live?”
I really liked this book. I’ve enjoyed reading both Peretti and Dekker in the past, but this book is better than either one individually. It’s got several twists and just when you think you’ve about got it figured out it turns again and you’re left reading another chapter so you can figure out what’s going on. If you like thrillers or the supernatural stuff you’ll probably get into this book pretty quickly. Little sidenote, apparently it’s been turned into a movie! I’ve ordered it thru Netflix and can’t wait to see it!
