The Big Thrill Recommends: EVERYONE IS WATCHING by Heather Gudenkauf

Recommended by K.L. Romo

Book Cover: EVERYONE IS WATCHINGBig Brother, meet your evil doppelgänger—Squid Game on steroids. In bestselling author Heather Gudenkauf’s newest riveting thriller, EVERYONE IS WATCHING, a reality internet show is more real than the contestants realize.

How far would you go to win 10 million dollars? The requirements sound easy—just stay in a luxury resort in Napa Valley and enjoy the amenities. Of course, there will be games involved, and some might be ruthless. But what would you expect with a prize that size? The five contestants have been hand-selected by a mysterious producer and assigned player names for the crowd to root for: The Best Friend—the broke mom of a chronically ill child; The Assistant—the producer’s assistant and unintended face of the show; The Confidante—a premier psychiatrist and podcast host, The Senator—a former US senator from Texas, and The Boyfriend—a famous attorney from Atlanta.

Total secrecy is required, with communication at the resort cut off—except for the cameras hidden around the estate, recording each player’s every move. #Oneluckywinner will be the live stream of the century. But what the contestants don’t realize is that they all have secrets connecting them. Could it possibly be “revenge by reality show”?

Gudenkauf mines society’s fixation on reality TV, cunningly revealing each contestant’s secrets and limitations as the narrative moves forward. Readers can’t help but revel in the deliciously sinister game that takes hold of the imagination and won’t let go. Will you be the One Lucky Winner? Or a dead loser?
