On a small Caribbean island a woman joins the newest reality TV show: 24/7. For Dana Kirsten, winning the $2-million prize could mean saving her child’s life. But only fifteen minutes into the first live broadcast, the show’s host and crew die a ghastly death. The shell-shocked contestants hear a voice echoing from hidden speakers: “I am Control, and this has just become the ultimate reality show.” Suddenly the voice is hurtling them through a maze of traps and macabre, individually designed puzzles. And when the worldwide audience votes one person off the island, it isn’t just a loss . . . it’s death.
Jim Brown is a broadcast journalist and a three-time winner of the Associated Press Best Newscast Award.
