James’ grandpa is dying. His only chance is an experimental treatment that the family can’t afford. When James receives a message about a contest where the prize is $10 million, he’s intrigued. The rules are that you have to be the first to complete 10 tasks exactly as the benefactor describes to win the money. Each task, however, gets more sketchy and more dangerous. Will he continue with the contest? Will he be able to save his grandpa?
The plot is well written, complex, intense, and full of twists. The characters are most well developed, likable and easy to enjoy. Fans of mystery, thrillers, and adventure will enjoy reading this book.
