Narrator Noah Michael Levine's dark-toned performance underscores the menace in this unpredictable thriller. Canadian bus driver Wallace Carver has taken his family on a cross-border shopping trip and everything goes smoothly until his wife and children fail to show up at the designated time at a mall in Bellingham, Washington. Levine uses pacing to intensify the mounting tension and anxiety as Carver discovers that all traces of his family have been removed back home. Now with only his best friend Crow Joe to help him, Wallace must find out what has happened to his family and why.
During a cross border shopping trip, a family vanishes. No reason. No ransom. No cry for help. Bus driver Wallace Carver fears the worst when his family fails to meet him at the Bellingham, Washington mall. His anxiety is justifiably heightened when security cameras unexplainably show that he crossed the Peace Arch border alone. Now, all Wallace wants to do is get his wife and sons back. But first he has to work out why they were taken and by whom.

This is such a fantastic WTF is going on mystery, bound with nerve-shaking-suspense, and heart thumping action!
I was completely blown away when the mystery was solved! I honestly listened to this audio in one sitting!! Yep, it was that good!!!
The only reason I did not give this an overall 5 stars is because of the total TEASE of brutal, animalistic, raunchy, dirty, knock down, fight to the excruciating death between two hardened warriors in Chapter 71.
Mr. McKenzie ripped my anxious and excited heart out by its root by completely ending that scene the way he did. I mean, he built that scene up beautifully.
Through out the whole story it was about a man, a regular man fighting for his family against warriors and though entertaining, it's not the same when two warriors who are equally match go to war!! And I was ready for that one on one. Just broke my heart, how he ended that scene!!
Also, I wished there had been a scene where those detectives and men in black d*ck heads had had to apologize (you'll just have to read to know who I'm talking about).
**************SPOILER ALERT END*******
So, I loved the performance and the story was an extremely well written, action suspense, mystery thriller, well worth the listen!!!!
it was a little slow getting into it, but the plot was well developed and kept me guessing. I loved how the main character was an ordinary guy with great character and determination.
