One Word Kill (2019)

Nick Hayes, a fifteen-year-old kid prodigy, learns he is dying in January 1986. And it isn’t even the oddest thing that has happened to him that week.

Nick and his Dungeons & Dragons companions are accustomed to living in their imaginations. But when a new girl, Mia, joins the group and reality becomes stranger than the dream realm they visit in their weekly games, none of them are prepared for what happens next. A bizarre yet strangely familiar figure is following Nick, with talents that should not exist. And this man bears a cryptic message: Mia is in terrible danger, albeit she is unaware of it. She urgently needs Nick’s assistance.

He finds himself in a race against time to solve an impossible puzzle and save the girl. And all that stands in his way is a potentially fatal sickness, a knife-wielding lunatic, and the rules of physics.

Challenge accepted.

“One Word Kill grabs hold of you and won’t let you go until you’ve finished the last page. It’s everything that I look for in a book, and like the best of reads, one that stays with you long after you’ve finished reading it.” ―John Gwynne, author of The Faithful and the Fallen series.
