I discovered Hurwitz a few months ago with "You're Next" and have enjoyed the non-stop action of his writing. Even though this is not as good as You're next and The Survivor it does not disappoint on the action front. The story however is not as plausible as the previous two that I read.
Also I see a theme developing- A male character who inadvertently gets into an seemingly impossible situation at the same time battling some sort of domestic problems either with his wife and/or child. This does not bother me so much because although it is the motivation for his characters drive it is not the main plot of the story.
I do however like that there is always a big unexpected puzzle piece at the end of Hurwitz's book that usually makes you say " oh, now I understand why..." That is the fun of getting to the end of his books even as the other pieces of the book are getting wrapped up.
Also the characters are interesting flaws and all.
In this book the overall plot is plausible but who it happens to ( a small-time screenwriter in LA) is not easily put together. If you can get past the fact that this scenario would not really happen to this guy then you can enjoy the book for the action.
I look forward to new books from Hurwitz and hope he keeps up the fast pace I love about his writing.
