Contest (изд. 2005 г. )

Производитель: "Macmillan Publishers"

Dr. Stephen Swain has found himself locked in the after-hours darkness of the New York Public Library. It isn t a mistake. He s been entombed in the historic sanctuary for a reason as the guest of an unknown host, chosen for a night of fun and games. He s unprepared. He s afraid. And he s 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. Against insurmountable odds the contest has begun. Should he win, the greatest, most unfathomable terror lies at the night s end: the very reason behind the game

Matthew John Reilly (born 2 July 1974[1] in Sydney) is an Australian action thriller writer. His novels are noted for their fast pace, twisting plots and intense action.



After graduating from Sydney's St Aloysius' College[2] in 1992,[3] Reilly studied Law at the University of New South Wales,[4] where he was also a contributor to the student law society publication "Poetic Justice".[citation needed] Reilly wrote his first book Contest while just 19 and self-published it in 1996.[1] It was rejected by every major publishing company in Sydney, leading Reilly to self-publish 1,000 copies using money borrowed from his family. Reilly's second book, Ice Station was also written whilst a student at the University of NSW.[5]

Reilly owns several movie prop reproductions including a life-size statue of Han Solo frozen in carbonite (Star Wars), a golden idol (Raiders of the Lost Ark) and a working DeLorean DMC-12 (Back to the Future).[1] A big fan of hollywood blockbusters, Reilly hopes to direct one of his own books as movies some day.
