"The future looks bright for Boston couple John Bodine and Ruby Dawes. John's online gaming business is growing, and they're talking about starting a family. But when Ruby receives a life-changing diagnosis, and their cut-rate insurance won't cover the treatment she desperately needs, John makes a risky move. He steals a customer's identity and files a false claim for Ruby's medication.The plan works perfectly--until the customer in question contacts John with a startling proposition. If John and Ruby play a little game he's devised, he won't report their fraud. The rules of 'Criminal' are simple: commit real crimes. But if they fail, there will be deadly consequences. John assumes it's a sick joke--until people start dying. With each round, the crimes get more twisted. John and Ruby can't disappear--and they can't go to the police. Their only option is to keep playing, while trying to outwit a psychopath who has no intention of letting them leave this game alive..."--Jacket flap.

Readers should note that Palmer (Helpless) sets a high bar for serial killer brutality--Publishers Weekly.

Palmer writes well, but the book descends almost immediately into torture porn.
