During the ten-hour trek to Miami, Rodney and the rest of the passengers awaken to find themselves duct-taped to their seats; stranded in the middle of nowhere. Their captor reveals himself, informing them that they are participants in a game of survival.
“The rules are simple,” he tells them. “Follow the flares to reach the safe zone. Make it there, and you live. Stay, and they will come tear you apart.”
Who is running this game? What awaits them out there in the darkness? And will these flares lead to freedom or straight into a trap?
If Rodney and the others want to live long enough to find out, they will have no choice but to uncover the dark secret that has brought them here and face a nightmare, unlike anything they have ever experienced before.
Perfection comes with a price.
For one man, achieving that perfect body, ends up costing him more than he would have ever expected.

The Saltwater Marathon
For the past six months, Bryan Combs has been consumed with guilt. He cheated on his wife, Sirena, and fell for the seductive charms of his boss, Carmela. The adultery proved too great for Sirena to handle, so she hopped in her car and drove it into the ocean. Her body was never recovered.
While the fling may have ended, the remorse remains, and now Bryan buries himself at work, opting for late night shifts at the mall, often drinking himself to sleep in the back office of his once beloved job. But everything changes the morning they show up… Strangers at his office door… screaming, pleading and begging him to open the door because they’re being pursued and desperately need somewhere to hide. As he awakens from his drunken stupor, he begins to wonder if this some sick joke put on by Carmela? Retribution against him for ending their torrid affair?
Bryan wouldn't be sure until he let these strangers inside. However once he does, he soon witnesses for himself what has these people so afraid, so panicked, that he finds it impossible to stay caught in his spiral of self-loathing.
Some VCRs do more than play movies.
Some VCRs open a doorway to darkness, death, and lust.
Meet Travis Rail, professional transporter of supernatural goods. Aside from his martial arts proficiency, skill behind the wheel and solid track record of deliveries, what makes him qualified to do what he does is that he doesn’t believe in the supernatural claims of his clients – which keeps him objective, honest and detached. Or so he thought.
When his latest client has him transport a chest containing something allegedly touched by Jesus, his world gets turned upside down. Not twenty minutes into the delivery the Rift show up – an underground cult hell-bent on collecting all of the treasures of God. However, it turns out that not only were they after the chest, they were after Travis as well.
Who exactly are the Rift? Why do they want him dead? And is what he's transporting actually something of Jesus?
In his quest for answers, Travis is reluctantly thrust into another delivery, transporting yet another one of God's treasures. And the closer he gets to completing this delivery, the more he learns that what he’s delivering might just be bigger than the package itself.
