Summary

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Michael Prescott comes a new kind of terror—an electrifying chase through the concrete labyrinth of a steam-tunnel system, where something lurks in the shadows. 
 
Something big. Something hungry.  
 
It's blood sport for the crazies who organize these nocturnal hunts, and a game of death for their latest victim. But unlike all the others, he's a man well acquainted with death. A man who has murdered for money. A man who intends to kill the thing that's stalking him—and kill it hard. 
Die Wide Awake is a 20,000 word novella from the author of Cold Around the Heart and Skin in the Game.

Not only that, she must confront the most difficult question of all: could Alex Randall be a murderer?
