The New York State Library looms as a silent sanctuary of knowledge: a hundred-year-old labyrinth of towering bookcases, narrow aisles, and spiral staircases. But for Dr Stephen Swain and his eight-year-old daughter Holly it is a place of nightmare. Because, for just one night, this historic building is to become the venue for a horrifying contest, a contest in which Swain must compete, whether he likes it or not.

The rules of the challenge are simple: seven contestants will enter, but only one will leave. With his daughter in his arms, Stephen Swain is plunged into a terrifying fight for survival. The stakes are high, the odds are brutal. He can choose to run, to hide, or to fight - but if he wants to live, he needs to win. For, in this particular contest, unless you leave as victor, you do not leave at all.

Portrait

Zitat
" Reilly hurls readers into an adrenaline-drenched thrill ride... impossible to put down." -- "Orlando Sentinel"
""
" Swain is clever, resourceful, and quick. The action is non-stop... this slam-bang story is great, good fun, and thoroughly entertaining." --"Tulsa World""" "Reilly...can inspire awe. Speed demons, take note. "
--"Publishers Weekly" "Compared to Matthew Reilly's "Temple" and his intrepid academic hero, Professor William Race, Indiana Jones is a wimp and The Raiders of The Lost Ark a snooze fest. Reilly's book has adrenaline in super-sized quantities."
--"The Orlando Sentinel" on "Temple"
