The first of Matthew Reilly's books - and in my opinion, still his best. This is the story of a ER Dr who is taken to be part of an intergalactic contest to the death. Only the Dr has no idea and he has an added incentive that the other contestants don't. This story is a continuous thrill ride that you just can't put down - like all of Matthew Reilly's books. This book is absolutely brilliant, and you will be captivated right up to the final pages. This is Matthew Reilly at his best - and should not be missed by anyone who loves Sci-Fi or Action novels.
