Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: "In Stolen, Daniel Palmer updates a classic premise, the ordinary man thrust into an extraordinary situation, and the result is a twisting, suspenseful chiller of a book." --William Landay, New York Times bestselling author of Defending Jacob

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...
