Wayward Pines, Idaho, is quintessential small-town America — or so it seems. Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrives in search of two missing federal agents, yet soon is facing much more than he bargained for. After a violent accident lands him in the hospital, Ethan comes to with no ID and no cell phone. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels…off. As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation into his colleagues’ disappearance turns up more questions than answers. Why can’t he make contact with his family in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what’s the purpose of the electrified fences encircling the town? Are they keeping the residents in? Or something else out? Each step toward the truth takes Ethan further from the world he knows, until he must face the horrifying possibility that he may never leave Wayward Pines alive…

Say something about yourself!
Yes, while I rated this book just okay I did listen to the whole thing, it was not to bad.
I have never listed to any of his books but since I found this book decent I would listen to another one in the future.
The narrator did not aggrevate me which is huge these days, so I enjoyed his reading style.
If you like books that have somewhat of the mystery factor and you can stand some small torture scenes you would like this book. The writer is not as intense as say Stephen King or Peter Straub so I liked that about this book. If you liked the book Shutter Island than this book while not as good is similiar.
In this book, hero wakes up in unknown place and tries to get back home. He is chased by all sorts of bad guys. Then he finds out "the truth". Just wasn't for me. I thought it might be like Shutter Island, which I enjoyed.
Kept getting kicked back
What lengths to hide a town?
Wow! This novel really had me going. I was so angry at one point I put the novel down (overnight). I was completely taken in and I usually work everything out.
Would definitely recommend this story! Any book that can keep me guessing - wondering how in the world it could possibly all come together - is one that I like! I've never listened to anything by the author and am now on my way to buying a few more. His style of writing is excellent - not a bunch of fluff and filler. And the ending - you'll be so surprised!
Fans of the twilight zone are going to enjoy this novel, the first of the trilogy. I don't want to give too much of the book away but there's a pretty great twist at the end. If you like suspenseful Mistry stories with a hint of sci-fi and I think you might enjoy this book.
Just a Latino living life in NYC
I was surprised on how quickly the characters and the narrator grew on me! I must admit just as l thought I had the story figured out, Mr. Garcia kept me intrigued with a new twist. Can't wait to get my hands on the remaining books.
The story is good enough for me to continue listening, but a person can only take so much physically that after a while it's hard to suspend disbelief.
I love my God, wife, family, books and all forms of expressive art.
Come along for a ride on a....
What an amazing writer, story, characters and more than likely mini-series
