New York Times bestselling author Joy Fielding showcases her talent for "chillingly satisfying twists" ( People ) in her sexiest thriller yet-where one seductive night in a South Beach bar morphs into a razor's-edge adventure with deadly consequences. It starts as a joke among two brothers and their friend, out for a night of partying at the Wild Zone. Who will be the first to seduce a mysterious-looking young woman drinking by herself at a corner table? The $100 bet is on for the trio-Jeff, a charismatic personal trainer; his half-brother Will, a Princeton grad student; and Tom, a recently discharged military man-and the game begins. What they don't know is Suzy Bigelow's innocent, girl-next-door looks hide some dangerous secrets, or that she has reasons of her own for luring an unsuspecting young lover close to her. Now, as a harmless wager takes on an explosive life of its own, it becomes frighteningly clear that there's no going back once you've entered The Wild Zone .
