One house, ten contestants, thirty cameras, forty microphones. Yet again the public gorges its voyeuristic appetite as another group of unknown and unremarkable people submit themselves to the brutal exposure of the televised reality soap opera, House Arrest. Everyone knows the rules: total strangers are forced to live together while the rest of the country watches them do it, Who will crack first? Who will have sex with who? Who will the public love and who will they hate?  All the usual questions. And then suddenly, there are some new ones.  A murder. No evidence. How was it done under the constant watchful eyes of the cameras and the nation? And why? And…who will be next… A killer read – literally – from Ben Elton. Cover art by Tony Stone.
