On the advice of his wife, Paul Rice is making plans to attend his 10th year High School reunion. Returning to his boyhood home of Harmony, Indiana, he finds that he is still haunted by memories of that time–memories of Deidra, his first love, and memories of the Wide Game. It was ten years ago that Paul and his friends watched their day of fun become a race for their lives, a fight for their very souls.
Now, as he meets the survivors of that day once more, Paul makes a chilling discovery: the incomprehensible forces that toyed with them have yet to finish playing their own game.
“This thing is scary as hell! Creepy, creepy book.”
— Cody Stark, “Read This!” FOX-TV
“Thrilling, exhilarating, fast-paced and ferocious, The Wide Game delivers the goods. It’s The Breakfast Club meets The Blair Witch Project. It still haunts me!”
— Marc Morriston, WTTV Indianapolis
“Michael West proves himself to be a masterful storyteller, flawless in building momentum, and his skills in characterization match or even often surpass some of the most successful writers in the business.”
— Nicholas Grabowsky, author of Halloween 4: Return of Michael Myers, and The Everborn
“Just when you think it will be predictable, BAM, it’s not. Lots of twists and turns made this story stick and kept me turning the pages. If you like Koontz, then you will like this story too.”
“The Wide Game…is a book written for horror movie fans. Michael West draws the reader in with a director’s touch. With a deft hand, West creates wonderful characters who live and breathe on the page. It was easy for me to allow Michael to lure me into those terror filled rows and make me cringe at what might lurk there in the dark. Michael West has…undeniable potential to be an important voice in the realm of horror fiction.”
— Bob Freeman, author of Cairnwood Manor
“I breezed through this book in no time. And I can’t say enough about how real the relationship at the core of the story was. (Michael West is) definitely one to keep an eye on.” ~Maurice Broaddus, author of King Maker
“Don’t open the cover unless you want to be sucked into a tornado of horror. Once you start in on this novel you won’t be able to pull away…A believable, dark, nasty, piece. Just remember the name Michael West because he has a future in the horror genre.”
— Brian Yount, Wicked Karnival Magazine
