James and Elle Eversman are a young couple traveling through the Mojave desert on their way to a new life. When their car mysteriously breaks down, they are stranded in the middle of nowhere without much water and no cell phone reception.
A mile away a deadly sniper has them in his crosshairs. They are pinned down behind their broken-down car, surrounded by open ground in all directions. There's nowhere to run and no one to help them. How can they possibly survive?
With relentless tension, razor-sharp prose, and a surprising dose of dark humor, Eyeshot will keep you gripped until its stunning conclusion.

A thriller you won't be able to put down. This wasn't really my type of book, boy was I wrong. I loved James & Elle's relationship. I cannot believe this all took place in the desert... it was very hard to put down Brilliant from start to finish!

Before beginning the book, I wondered if the author would be able to keep the tension and pacing going strong throughout the entire book. The author, Taylor Adams, exceeded my expectations and I stayed up late to listen to it.
The narrator was well matched with the story and used the right inflection at the right moment.
I look forward to more books from this author.
Despite the number of positive reviews, I find I am soooooo not interested in finishing this book. I'm only on chapter 5. I guess I'm not the right audience for this book.
With regards to the reader, the couple is supposed to be young...but the narrator sound like he is in his 60's! Aaarrrggghhh!
As thrillers go pretty good but some of the characters were left undeveloped and lacked motivation to do some of the things they did.
Who was this Soviet guy and why would he bust ass to please Taft when Taft would have let him die and obviously wasn't paying him.
How the guy had killed 55 people over many years with the idiots he had helping him makes no sense.
But if you suspend disbelief- which is easy to do and as I do with many others - it was fun and entertaining.
