‘Death Week’ By Sam Rizzo

Death Week started five years ago. It is as it suggests: one week of death. Murder is completely legal during this time. It started as an attempt to thin the population, and continues because the event has become extremely popular. Rebecca was going to buy her way outside the city and avoid the event, but she couldn’t leave Jake to fend for himself. He insisted on staying so he could avenge his sister who was killed in front of him during last year’s Death Week. Can she survive the week with men and women mercilessly killing around every corner?
