    Arriving in the mail over a period of weeks are taunting letters that end with a simple declaration: “Think of any number…picture it…now see how well I know your secrets.” Amazingly, those who comply find that the letter writer has predicted their random choice exactly. For Dave Gurney, just retired as the NYPD’s top homicide investigator and forging a new life with his wife, Madeleine, in upstate New York, the letters are oddities that begin as a diverting puzzle but quickly ignite a massive serial murder investigation.

    Kelley says: "Fresh and Frightening!"
    "Interesting story"
    Overall

    I also have the hardcover version of this book. Sometimes I'd read. Sometimes I'd listen. Sometimes I'd do both. It was a good book to relax with on the deck. Truthfully, I found it the climax a little predictable, however the ride there was anything but. A good story and a terrific debut novel for John. I've suggested the book to others.

    Detective John Corey now faces his toughest assignment yet: the pursuit and capture of the world's most dangerous terrorist -- a young Arab known as "The Lion" who has baffled a federal task force and shows no sign of stopping in his quest for revenge against the American pilots who bombed Libya and killed his family.

    John Robertson says: "What happened to Scott Brick?!!"
    "Good Story"
    Overall

    While perhaps not quite as exciting as The Lion's Game, I still found the story engaging and enjoyable. I'd easily recommend it.

    As usual, the first-class narration of Scott Brick really brings the story to life. I cannot imagine another narrator doing John Corey.

    Story
    (1049)

    Five years after the crashof TWA Flight 800, the government has declared it a result of mechanical failure. But John Corey, an ex-NYPD detective who is now a contract agent with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is persuaded by Kate Mayfield, his wife and task force partner, that the case deserves a second look.

    Ms Discus says: "Addictive mix of fact & intriguing storyline"
    "Feeling a little cheated"
    Overall

    Like some others, I found the ending rather disappointing. I was prepared for a showdown meeting that never materialized. The suspense kept building and building, then the rug was pulled out from under me.
    Apart from that, it was very enjoyable indeed.
    As usual, Scott Brick's narration is first rate.
