After years of micromanaging his environment and serving as the facilitator of an international money laundering system for some of the world's most notorious crime families, Gordon Dessler's criminal empire is in trouble.
When past indiscretions and current enemies begin to erode his comfort zone, Dessler responds by creating a chilling game. With the proper motivation, be it money, power, or love, Dessler believes that human beings will kill one another to attain their desires. Thus, the Assassination Game is born-and Dessler plans to broadcast it on the Internet.
In Dessler's home on Wilhelmina Island, a haven for the rich and privileged, eight strangers must fight against one another in a game to the death. The participants come from a variety of occupations from professional criminals and murderers to everyday working people.
With the game a runaway hit on the Internet, Dessler believes his empire is secure. But he doesn't count on the effect of personal relationships that develop between the players. And one relationship in particular may just ruin everything .
