THE CONTEST YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE COME TRUE Dr. Stephen Swain has found himself locked in the after-hours darkness of the New York Public Library. It isnt a mistake. Hes been entombed in the historic sanctuary for a reason-as the guest of an unknown host, chosen for a night of fun and games. Hes unprepared. Hes afraid. And hes not alone.Six other contestants roam the black halls, room by room, floor by floor, in the dead silence. Each strapped with an explosive set to detonate should they escape before the night is over. The terms are simple seven players enter-only one will leave.Now Swain must navigate the labyrinth to outwit the unknown moves of his mysterious opponents, and to outlast the unimaginable dangers that await him.

  1.  An unputdownable debut novel 30 March, 2014 On
    What happens when an ordinary ends up in a ‘contest’ with aliens where the winner is the only survivor of the contest and winning is all about killing the other contestants (who are weird alien creatures). AND unfortunately, you are (by mistake) dragged into the contest along with your daughter !!!

    That’s what Contest is all about. A novel MR has difficulty finding a publisher and had to self-publish. This was the first MR novel I read and for me, it was fabulous – so much so that I began to search his other works.

    The central character is not only interesting but so are the aliens. The setting is also intrigueing – a library which has been sealed off after the participants have arrived, and only the winner (read: survivor) will walk out of it alive.

    MR’s writing style is like none other and the novel is absolutely action packed – every page of the book has some action happening and you just can’t put the book down. It is simply an unputdownable.
