Publisher's Summary

Charlie West just woke up in someone else's nightmare. He's strapped to a chair. He's covered in blood and bruises. He hurts all over. And a strange voice outside the door just ordered his death. The last thing he can remember is that he was a normal high-school kid doing normal things: working on his homework, practicing karate, daydreaming of becoming an Air Force pilot, writing a pretty girl's number on his hand. How long ago was that? Where is he now? Who is he really? And more to the point.... How is he going to get out of this room alive?

Not Just For Kids!

The main character is a teen-ager, but the book held this grandmother's interest every step of the way. My only complaint is that it didn't really resolve anything at the end. Most books that have sequels usually sort of tie things up, so that each book can stand alone. This was more like part one of a single book. It actually ended right in the middle of a situation, just leaving the reader hanging. I felt as if I'd bought a book and suddenly discovered someone had torn out the last few chapters. Or, as if I was watching a movie on tv and the power went off, leaving me frustrated that I didn't know how it ended. Having said all that, I will definitely be buying the sequels. I just hate that it's going to cost two credits to basically listen to one book. Or maybe three credits, depending on how the second book ends.

I can't wait to see what happens next

The story was very engrossing. I am very intrigued by how the main character wound up in the situation he is in. Ii'd say more but don't want to give anything away. If you like mysteries, this is compelling.
