Make the wrong choice, and you won't live to make another...

Gem Golding only has two choices. A stranger holds a knife to her skin, his demands terrifying in the deserted parking garage. Should she surrender? Or should she fight back?

This attacker is no ordinary criminal. This night, like so many of them, is all a game to him. He makes the rules, the rules that determine whether his victims live or die. Rules that will set Gem's fate in motion. He's waiting for her to decide.

But how can you win the game when you don't know how to play? What if surrendering is the worst thing you can do? What if fighting back will kill you?

Two choices. Two outcomes. And only one way for Gem to survive.
