Ten years ago, the small town of Bates, South Carolina was changed forever with the appearance of a slip of paper.
Six names. Six people set to die. Six months later, they were gone. But the list maker was far from done with their town. Like clockwork, new lists come out every six months. To keep their names off of them, the citizens go to extraordinary lengths and keep terrifying secrets. Someone is controlling their town. But who? And, most importantly, why? When Connor and Jordyn Atwood move to Bates, they see firsthand how far their new neighbors are willing to go to protect themselves. Will the Atwoods succumb to their newfound surroundings? Or will they fight to protect the town they now call their home? With everything at stake and no one to trust, the Atwoods quickly learn the list maker has one important rule: Do what you're told...or find your name on The List.
