Think ghosts from the past. Think must-read. Think holiday reading.

It all began with The Rules.

No.1: Crying

Don’t.

No matter what.

Don’t.

No. 2: Snitching

Don’t.

No matter what.

Don’t.

No. 3: Revenge

Do.

No matter what.

Do.

In the elevator of the building Will is visited by ghosts from his past, all of whom have suffered a similar fate at the hands of a man with a gun. As the elevator descends, and the ghosts all reveal the circumstances surrounding their deaths, the reader is dragged down through the chaos of Will’s grief-stricken mind.

This novel is incredible!
