Emerson Ness has not been scared in a very long time. Now she was terrified.

Ben Oliver is back with a thrilling and terrifying YA novel, The Kill Factor which publishes with Chicken House in the UK today and it’ll put you on the edge of your seat!

A story where Squid Game meets Black Mirror, The Kill Factor is about a new reality game show of the same title that gives fifty life-imprisoned minors a second chance – only one contestant will win the prize while the rest will face life in solitary confinement. Winning that freedom and money would change everything for arsonist ad accidental murderer Emerson Ness. But she doesn’t know more and more contestants will die during each challenge. The only choice they have is to win over viewers before it’s too late…

The Kill Factor will also be publishing in the US with Scholastic on 16th April 2024.
