It's the game you never asked to play. A one-way bus ticket to Florida offers Rodney Corso the chance at a fresh start from his dead-end life in South Carolina. Unfortunately, he'd never reach his final destination. During the ten-hour trek to Miami, Rodney and the rest of the passengers awaken to find themselves duct-taped to their seats; stranded in the middle of nowhere. Their captor reveals himself, informing them that they are participants in a game of survival. “The rules are simple,” he tells them. “Follow the flares to reach the safe zone. Make it there, and you live. Stay, and they will come tear you apart.” Who is running this game? What awaits them out there in the darkness? And will these flares lead to freedom or straight into a trap? If Rodney and the others want to live long enough to find out, they will have no choice but to uncover the dark secret that has brought them here and face a nightmare, unlike anything they have ever experienced before.
