    A body is found at an ATM, the apparent victim a of heart attack. Then two teenage girls are arrested for the brutal murder of a cab driver. The girls confess to the crime, showing no remorse whatsoever. Two open-and-shut cases. At first these two incidents seem to have nothing in common, but as Wallander delves deeper into the mystery of why the girls murdered the cab driver, he begins to unravel a plot much more complicated than he initially suspected.

    Patrick Davis is a man with troubles. First his Hollywood dreams crumble, then his storybook marriage hits a snag. Finally, DVDs start being delivered to his house – DVDs which show that someone is watching him and his wife, that the two of them are being stalked and recorded by cameras hidden around and within their house. Then the e-mails start, and someone offers to fix everything, to take the mess his life has become and make it all right. Patrick figures it's the offer of a lifetime.

    Story

    This was my first and only Hurwitz. The action seemed jumpy and I felt no connection to the characters. If you're into surveillance, you may get a kick out of the plot. I was neither intrigued by the story line nor scared by the idea of it. Perhaps it was just too deep for me.

    "I moved to New York City a month ago to become the best journalist the world had ever seen. To find the greatest stories never told. And now here I am, Henry Parker, 24 years old and weary beyond rational thought, a bullet one trigger-pull from ending my life."

    Malle says: "Great audiobook!"
    "Thrilling"
    Overall

    I picked this book based on "author's choice" - an Audible page that featured new books recommended by well-known authors. The Mark lived up to the recommendation. I was on the edge to my seat through the whole read. I awoke at 5:30 today - a Saturday - to finish it. Jason Pinter has crafted an exciting thriller and Noah Plener reads it with a raspy urgency.
