“Here’s your life ends: Not with a whimper, but a scream!”
Jude Parish is a former violent crimes cop turned bestselling true crime author. Now, in the wake of his literary success, Jude is hoping to lead a quiet, peaceful life in the idyllic Adirondack vacation town of Lake George, New York along with his pregnant wife, Rosie, and Jack, his young son from a previous marriage.
But when the ex-cop becomes the accidental witness to a bizarre murder in which the killer, video game designer and master of disguise, Hector “the Black Dragon” Lennox, insists on recording the screams of his victim prior to shooting him dead, the Jude’s life is turned upside down.
When Lennox is arrested by the L.G.P.D. and Jude is asked to act as the state’s “star witness,” he has no choice but to take on the role. But what he doesn’t realize is that the killer’s arrest is actually the first level in what will be a carefully scripted 1st person video kill game that will involve his entire family as “players” and “victims.”
How will the kill game end?
Like all violent video games, it will end in death. But it won’t be “Game Over” until Hector Lennox tries to catch the screams of his tortured victims.
