    When a band of backwoods hunters crash a corporate retreat in the wilderness, executives find themselves held hostage by men who will do anything to get the largest ransom in history. The corporate big shots hadn't wanted junior exec Jake Landry there. But now he's the only one who can save them.

    Overall

    There are a few elite writers that come out with terrific books every time. Nelson DeMille, Harlan Coben, David Baldacci, and the great Joseph Finder have never let me down yet. This title follows the formula of "ordinary joe, somewhat under-doggish, thrust into extraordinary situation", that is always wonderful escape-ism if it isn't too predictable. You are rooting for the hero Jake Landry right from jump street, and he's a great hero to root for throughout the book. My only complaint is the 8+ hour time was too short!! I was left wanting more, but hopefully Mr. Finder has another one coming down the pike soon enough.
    Narrators really make the read, and Dennis Boutsikaris was note perfect here. Scott Brick would be proud! I highly recommend this title to anyone who loves the above mentioned writers, I buy at least six audiobooks a month, having three different accounts with Audible, and this has been the best book in a while. Namaste!

    Marc Seidman awakens to find himself in an ICU, hooked up to an IV, his head swathed in bandages. Twelve days earlier, he had had an enviable life as a successful surgeon, living in a peaceful suburban neighborhood with his beautiful wife and a baby he adored. Now he lies in a hospital bed, shot by an unseen assailant. His wife has been killed, and his 6-month-old daughter, Tara, has vanished. But just when his world seems forever shattered, something arrives to give Marc a new hope: a ransom note.

    Overall

    Well, first I have to say that I have an Audible addiction. I have three accounts and download about 5 books a month, more or less. Obviously, I don't hit on all winners, and some I just have to abandon completely.
    However, any book I've chosen that Mr. Scott Brick has read is always a sure bet. There have only been one or two that I had trouble with, but I don't fault Mr. Brick for it. No Second Chance is a thoroughly engrossing read, though; no problems with story or narrator. You get hooked right from the first chapter and love every minute you are with the protagonist. I would recommend this book to anyone with a love for fast-paced mysteries, this book doesn't lack action, there are no long spots to get bogged down in, you just wish the story was longer. Try it and see if I'm not right.
