Overview

Fear for your life.


FBI Agents Hank Garrison and Billy Boddicker are called in to try to piece together the murders of three people found in a Massachusetts house. When a video tape turns up at the crime scene, they soon realize that the murders were nothing more than a series of sick and twisted psychological experiments that turned out to be deadly. Now it's a race against the clock to try and solve the elaborate riddle the killer has left for the agents. And while they're trying to piece together the puzzle, the murderer is getting ready to conduct a second deadly experiment; one involving eight college students and the things they fear most.
Lost in the abundance of clues and suspects, the agents are part of their own experiment- one where time is running out and failure may mean the deaths of many. Will the murderer be found? Will the potential victims be saved? Or will the experiments end up leaving everyone scared to death?

Read an Excerpt

The masked man waved his black-gloved hand at the camera and then flipped the sheet over to reveal another blue lettered message.
EXPERIMENT TWO: Nineteen Hours and Thirty-Three Minutes
The voice started.
'Victim number two. The female killed in the bedroom. Her task was also simple. All I wanted to know was whether or not her dilemma, her illness some might say, was real. Perhaps it could be fixed. A gun aimed at her head would be a worthy way to fix it. Who can sleep with such a thing on their mind? Who can sleep worrying about dying? I know I wouldn't be able to. Apparently she could. But don't worry it was painless. I assure you, she didn't feel a thing. We all grow up wanting to die in our sleep anyhow. She got her wish. She only lasted five hours. Funny to think about that. Could you last only five hours with a gun aimed at you?'
