We were looking for a mystery/drama that would draw us into the story, and Mr. Hurwitz did not disappoint. The narration was spot on as well. This is not a story for people who cannot take a little tension in the plot.
Not much on writing reviews for books but this was worth a review. I will just agree with everyone else its that edge of your seat, can't put down kinda book. Awesome. Needs to be a movie.
I really loved this book. You will fall in love with so many of the characters that it hurts to see the book end. I've never read any of Hurwitz before, but I plan to definitely look into his other work. Great writer, great story, great performance! Loved it!!
Truly astounding, I didn’t know what was coming next; on the edge of my seat!!! Could not put it down, but was very afraid for what was coming next. I truly was enveloped in this story line. This is a must read. Outside of what I normally read. I loved the suspense!
Harlan Coben is one of my favorite authors, but may soon be taken over by Gregg Hurwitz. Narrator Scott Brick does a few Coben novels and I've always found him to be excellent - in my option, the best in the business. I did a search for Scott Brick and came across Gregg Hurwitz. You're Next was the first book to try and I'm glad I did. Excellent story with believable main characters that you get emotionally attached to and really bad guys hunting them down - it reads like a movie (fast paced and gripping). I may go through all of Hurwitz's collection now, downloading Survivor next (again by Scott Brick so I don't think I'll be disappointed).
Writing is actually really good and the deliverance of the narrator matches in quality. Give this one a go. You might be surprised as well.
Extremely "taut" and a complete thrill ride!
Great character voices...but Shep stands alone!
I find new authors all the time by following what Scott Brick reads! There is nobody better....no matter who the author is.... or what the story is about.
Best so far!
This book sucked me in slowly, but once it had me, it didn't let go! This book was well plotted, well written, and engaging as heck! Edge of your seat excitement and suspense.
A do not miss book. Can not recommend this one enough.
I am waiting patiently for the best book on earth!!
I did not like all the liberal politics in the story! If I wanted to read a book on politics I would have read one!
Painful in a good way. I had a relationship with these characters and now I miss them.
Shep. His loyalty.
Can't wait to read another of Gregg Hurwitz's novels.
