When the gleaming new Manderley Resort opens in twenty-four hours, Santa Barbara's exclusive beachfront hotel will offer its patrons the ultimate in luxury and high-tech security. No indulgence has been ignored, no detail overlooked. But all the money in the world can't guarantee safety. As hotel manager Tessa and her employees ready the hotel for its invitation-only grand opening, a killer is in their midst. One by one, staff are picked off with ruthless precision. And before the night is over, as Tessa desperately struggles to survive, it will become clear that the strangest and most terrible truth at Manderley is simply this: someone is watching. With stunning ingenuity, Gina Wohlsdorf puts readers front and center as the elite resort becomes a house of horrors. Riveting to the final sentence, Security is fierce, wry, and impossible to put down. With a deep bow to the literary tradition of Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe, and Daphne du Maurier, Wohlsdorf's razor-wire prose blitzes readers with quick twists, sharp turns, and gasp-inducing terror. Security is at once a shocking thriller, a brilliant narrative puzzle, and a moving, multifaceted love story unlike any other.

"Wohlsdorf is a new, significant talent in the often formulaic world of thrillers and horror, and this first major work is surprising and refreshing. Narrator Zack Villa's warm voice adds a significant dimension to the story. An opulent hotel on the California coast is about to open, but someone is determined to obstruct the opening. One by one, members of the staff are murdered. Villa's capacity for distinct dialogue voices--both male and female--allows the listener to keep track of the subplots. His pacing is careful, and his pronunciation consistent. His performance as the nature of the protagonist slowly reveals itself is spectacular. Wohlsdorf expresses a sadistic streak, and the buckets of blood may be too much for some listeners. Still, this thriller holds one's attention. F.C. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
