On the night the richest boy in San Francisco is killed, seventeen-year-old Jimmie Barlow knows just three things--1) He was one of the last people to see the boy alive. 2) The suspect list not only includes himself, but his new girlfriend. 3) He can't trust anyone, maybe not even himself. As Jimmie sets out to clear himself from the charge of murder, he realizes he's in serious trouble. He's so caught up in playing a video game called CAIN, it's gotten inside his head, and he can no longer tell the difference between reality and fantasy.

Did Jimmie actually commit murder? It's time for him to face some important truths about not only himself, but the girl he believes he loves. If he doesn't figure things out, and fast, the consequences will be fatal.

About the Author

C.D. Swanson is a non-fiction and fiction author. Her fiction is always based on real-life events, including her latest mystery, "A Mug's Game." The book's genesis was the all-out assault on Columbine High School by two high-school seniors, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris. Many people are still haunted by the question: why did they do it? "A Mug's Game," answers that question in a surprising way. C.D. Swanson's previous book, "Busting Loose: Cancer Survivors Tell You What Your Doctors Won't," was awarded the 2010 Living Now Silver Medal. Previously a resident of San Francisco, she lives in Kauai.
