From USA TODAY bestselling author Robert Swartwood comes the exciting first book in the Man of Wax Trilogy ...  

Ben Anderson goes to bed Sunday night, lying next to his wife in the comfort and safety of their Pennsylvania family home, to wake up the next day in a rundown motel in California — alone. He doesn't know how he got there, he doesn't know where his family is, and written in dried blood on the bathroom door are the words LET THE GAME BEGIN.

Soon Ben is contacted by Simon. Simon knows all there is to know about Ben, more than he cares to remember himself. If Ben wants to save himself and his family, he will have to do everything Simon says. 

As the game begins — with stakes much higher than either man can imagine — no one knows where it will lead or how it will end. 

Only one thing is for certain: this time the game will change everything. 

Praise for MAN OF WAX: 

"Man of Wax grabs you by the throat in the first chapter and never lets go. A suspense-filled thrill ride with plenty of shocks along the way. Read it!" — F. Paul Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of the Repairman Jack novels 

"One of the best 'scary' stories I have read this year ... great job, I loved it." — The Parents Little Black Book of Books 

"The action gets pumped up through the roof." — Pajiba

    Depraved, creppy story that ends bad

    Not a fan of this plot. Creepy brual with n0 relief from the gruesome minute to minute depravity. It would help if there were something redeming... But i didnt find anything!
