From USA Today bestselling author Robert Swartwood, the first book in an exciting trilogy ...
Ben Anderson goes to bed Sunday night, lying next to his wife in the comfort and safety of their Pennsylvania family home, to wake up the next day in a rundown motel in California — alone.
He doesn't know how he got there, he doesn't know where his family is, and written in dried blood on the bathroom door are the words LET THE GAME BEGIN.
Soon Ben is contacted by Simon. Simon knows all there is to know about Ben, more than he cares to remember himself. If Ben wants to save himself and his family, he will have to do everything Simon says.
As the game begins — with stakes much higher than either man can imagine — no one knows where it will lead or how it will end.
Only one thing is for certain: this time the game will change everything.
Man of Wax is the first book in a thriller trilogy where every day men and women must fight a power that threatens to destroy the world.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Man of Wax hits the ground running: Ben Sherman wakes up alone in a motel room with no idea how he got there and a sinister message written on the wall in blood. And that’s just the first chapter. Robert Swartwood’s edgy thriller takes us on a wild, tense ride into the darkest side of human nature. The book left us wondering how far we’d be willing to go to save the people we love. Combining the nonstop action of Matthew Reilly and the dystopian vision of Stephen King’s The Running Man, this trilogy-starter is a suspenseful must-read.
