The first installment in the Andrew Z. Thomas Series and a prequel to Crouch's and Konrath's thriller Stirred...
Greetings. There is a body buried on your property, covered in your blood. The unfortunate young lady's name is Rita Jones. In her jeans pocket you'll find a slip of paper with a phone number on it. Call that number. If I have not heard from you by 8:00 P.M., the police will receive an anonymous call. I'll tell them where Rita Jones is buried on your property, how you killed her, and where the murder weapon can be found in your house. (I do believe a paring knife is missing from your kitchen.) I strongly advise against going to the police, as I am always watching you.
Andrew Z. Thomas is a successful writer of suspense thrillers, living the dream at his lake house in the piedmont of North Carolina. One afternoon in late spring, he receives a bizarre letter that eventually threatens his career, his sanity, and the lives of everyone he loves. A murderer is designing his future, and for the life of him, Andrew can't get away.
Dear Reader: Please keep the light on tonight. What happens next will scare you. Guaranteed.

I'm simply in love with the entire series, the narrator made me have to stop listening, cause I thought I was looking at TV, couldn't get any darn work done. What a great listen, kudo;'s to you both. used one credit then had to purchase the others out right, but they were worth it
Kneel Before Zod!!
Yes, because it's original and hard to forget.
The beginning of the story.
His tone and ability to disguise his voice without becoming annoying.
Can't say without revealing bits of the story so I won't commit :-)
Love my family....along with guitars, cameras, and a good book!
I did enjoy this book, and I look forward to the rest of the series, but I am just not sure why the author chose the narrator that he did. I'm sure Mr. Dove is a fine narrator for some kinds of books, but I felt as if he were reading a text book a lot of the time. There just wasn't much life or emotion in his reading. Everything was told as a matter of fact, rather than trying to convey the emotion that I felt the author was going for. Just my opinion.
Poor Andy ..... He should have just shot these guys - but no novel in that!
The end one two three four
Did his grad student ghost write this??? Not the same style. Not the same voice. Protagonist voice was flawed. Metaphors and comparisons were as trite and ill used as those in 50 shades of grey! The only reason I could get through this was the hope that both twins would be dead at the end!! The protagonist was as cartoonish as his villain and twice as stupid. Blake, I thought you were going to be my next fictional crush. Try harder. Or not! But smart readers will abandon you! -
No, I don't think so. All my friends are nice people.
in one respect please; I was please it was finished, on the other hand I don't appreciate cliffhangers, but, at least, I had the triology.
Yes, he was excellent.
mmmmm, yes, quickly read the next books.
Quickly paced suspense thriller in the truest sense. There's always something - awful - happening; murder and mayhem abound. If you're into torture, pain, and death, this is the book for you. If you're a tad squeamish, don't buy it. Nothing like the Pines series.
