It was supposed to be a harmless camping trip. Six wayward teenagers who'd run into trouble with the law, and their court-appointed guardians, Sara and Martin Randhurst. Three nights on a small, deserted island off of Michigan's upper peninsula. A time to bond, to learn, to heal.
Then Martin told a campfire story about the island's history. Of the old civil war prison hidden in there, and the starving confederate soldiers who resorted to cannibalism to stay alive. Everyone thought it was funny. They even laughed when Martin pretended to be dragged off into the woods.
But Martin didn't come back. And neither did Sara when she went in search of him.
Then the laughter stopped.
The group soon began to realize that this deserted island wasn't so deserted after all. And perhaps Martin's ridiculous story had more truth to it than anyone thought.
What's the most horrifying thing you can imagine?
This is a hundred times worse...
TRAPPED by Jack Kilborn
It starts where other horror ends
A Word of Warning
This is the long-awaited follow-up to AFRAID, one of the most horrifying books ever written.
Originally scheduled to be released in paperback in 2010, the publisher read the first version of the manuscript and refused to release it. The author made extensive changes, rewriting much of the story. The publisher still refused.
This is a disturbing, terrifying book. You may think you're brave enough to handle it. But you're probably not...
Contains bonus excerpts from ENDURANCE by Jack Kilborn, and AFRAID by Jack Kilborn, as well as DESERT PLACES by Blake Crouch.
But that's not all...
Taking advantage of ebook format and technology, the author is also proud to offer as a bonus; the entire original first draft of TRAPPED.
This ebook package contains two versions of the same book, dramatically different in parts. See what was cut. See what was changed. Read new characters, new scenes, and a different ending. Decide for yourself which version you prefer.
This is the very first time an ebook has been made available in two different versions, for one low price.
This is specially formatted for Kindle, with an active table of contents. With both versions, this ebook is over 180,000 words.

J.A. Konrath Interviews Jack Kilborn
JA: Thanks for taking time to answer some questions, Jack.
Jack: I've heard of you. You write those chick novels, right?
JA: I write about a female cop who chases serial killers. Some folks think they're pretty scary. Both men and women enjoy the series, but it's a bit harder-edged than the average suspense novel.
Jack: Aren't you the guy that visited 600 bookstores in one summer? Signed thousands of books?
JA: That's me.
Jack: I haven't seen your name on any bestseller lists.
JA: So, how would you describe AFRAID?
Jack: I tried to write a thriller that included every kind of fear possible. Fear of the dark, or being chased, of drowning, of authority, of burning, of losing a loved one, of pain, of disfigurement...and, of course, fear of being horribly murdered.
JA: What's the plot?
Jack: A helicopter crashes near the small town of Safe Haven, Wisconsin. It's so tiny it has a population of 904. But not for long.
JA: So the helicopter lets something loose in town?
Jack: Something horrible. The town can't defend itself either--no police force. Soon it's quarantined, and everyone is fighting for their lives.
JA: I was lucky enough to read an advanced reader copy of AFRAID. It scared the hell out of me.
Jack: Thanks. I'm predicting that at least 25% of people who start the book won't be able to finish it because it's too frightening. It gave me nightmares when I was writing it.
JA: There certainly are some memorable scares.
Jack: I didn't use any chapters in the book. My goal was to go from one high point to another without any breaks. I hope it worked.
JA: It worked for me. You call it "technohorror." What is that?
Jack: The technothriller genre is about fusing modern day science and technology with big thrills. Michael Crichton perfected the form, which has been used to great success by Dan Brown, James Rollins, Steve Berry, and many others. Technohorror views technology in a more sinister way.
JA: Do you think the scenario in AFRAID could happen?
Jack: I wouldn't be surprised if it already has.
JA: You've sort of come out of nowhere. Care to share your writing background?
Jack: It's probably similar to yours. Bitten by the writing bug at a young age, getting a lot of rejections, finally landing a two-book deal with a big publishing house.
JA: I like the Afraid Game on your website.
Jack: Thanks. It's a fun little Flash thing I did. People seem to enjoy it.
JA: So what's next for Jack Kilborn?
Jack: I wrote two other horror novels, TRAPPED and ENDURANCE, which are just as intense as AFRAID. I also wrote the novel DRACULAS with some good friends. It's a balls-to-the-wall zombie book.
JA: Zombies? Aren't draculas vampires?
Jack: Read it and see for yourself. These monsters make zombies look like your grandma.
JA: My grandma is dead.
Jack: The living dead?
JA: The dead where you don't move around or try to eat people.
JA: Getting back to AFRAID, I liked it so much I'd be happy to blurb it.
Jack: I'm sort of holding out for blurbs from bestselling authors, if you don't mind. No offense.
JA: No offense taken. Maybe you'd like to blurb one of my books, if you have time.
Jack: One of those chick books? Sure. But I can't promise I'll like it.
JA: CHERRY BOMB has a four page sex scene, several torture-murders, and an extended female fist fight.
Jack: I'll give you my address so you can send me a copy.
