Swain, a doctor is kidnapped by the Aliens running the show and teleported to a sealed off New York library where he must battle the other 6 aliens to the death. Unfortunately for Swain, not only is he in danger but his young daughter was accidentally sent with him so he must protect her as well.
Swain meets Selexin who has been assigned his guide. Selaxin tells Swain that in two previous contests earthlings were involved and they were both killed immediately.
The story is action packed and you wonder how Swain is able to stay cool under impossible odds. Reilly is a master at telling tales with "Die Hard" like action throughout.
The end of the book fails to tie up all loose ends otherwise I would have rated it higher. Also, I did not understand the last sentence of the book and there is an interview in the book with Reilly where he states that the last sentence is significant.
