Publisher's Summary

Nate Overbay, a former soldier suffering from PTSD and ALS, goes to an 11th-floor bank and climbs out the bathroom window onto the ledge, ready to end it all. But as he’s steeling himself to jump, a crew of gunmen bursts into the bank and begins viciously shooting employees and customers. With nothing to lose, Nate climbs back inside, confronts the robbers, and with his military training, starts taking them out, one by one. The last man standing leaves Nate with a cryptic warning: “He will make you pay in ways you can’t imagine.” Soon enough, Nate learns what this means.

He is kidnapped by Pavlo, a savage Ukrainian mobster and mastermind of the failed heist. Now blocked from getting into the bank vault to retrieve the critical item inside, Pavlo gives Nate a horrifying ultimatum: Either break in and acquire the item or watch Pavlo slowly kill the people Nate loves most - his estranged wife, Janie, and his teenaged daughter, Cielle. Nate lost them both when he came back from Iraq broken and confused. Now he’s got one chance to protect the people he loves, even if it’s the last thing he is able to do.

    "More than I expected... much more"

    Read other books by this author and they were good. This one kinda hung around in my library for a long time. Finally I started it and whoa! what the...
    Gripping, grinding, edge of your seat action and then all the sudden there are the heart wrenching twists and turns... yeah, no regrets. Brick does a 10 job on it too. I doubt seriously that you'll be disappointed.

    Story
    "Put me to sleep"
    What would have made The Survivor better?

    The narration was too timid. It just put me to sleep


    What was most disappointing about Gregg Hurwitz’s story?

    Nate should have been more Chuck Norris type


    Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick’s performances?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Plot was good. Jason was a funny guy


    Any additional comments?

    Out of all the books that I have listened to, this one was painful.

    "Wow..."

    Gregg Hurwitz wrote a great novel. I'd have to say this book is probably in my top five favorites. The characters were very well developed. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and I never wanted to stop listening. Scott Brick as always brought the characters to life. If you're a fan of thrillers, then you definitely don't want to miss this book.

    Story
    "A Good Story and Not a Book with a Message"

    I really dislike fiction that tries to put in the author's opinion into the pages. This is about a man ready to jump from a tall building. He is a former soldier with PTSD, but this isn't about PTSD. Many books have been written about soldiers with PTSD and they describe the terrible situation of the soldier. That is fine, but if I want to hear a lecture about that problem, I would read about the problem. This book is not a book about PTSD, it is about a hero, a soldier that acts without thinking of the consequences. A good man gets caught up in something more than just countries fighting. Part of the story seem just a little over the top, but mostly, this book kept my attention until the end. And that is a good thing.

    Story
    "Not for me. But you might like it."

    I know that Mr Bricks' narration always seems melodramatic to me. But the stories seem like good ones, so I buy them hoping I'll change my mind but never really enjoy it. This one, I couldn't finish. But if you like his style (and most do apparently) you'll probably like it. I guess I'm only writing for those like me who buy books hoping that the next experience w/this narrator will be better. It won't - but I bet I keep trying b/c the stories are good.

    "Predictable"

    The book was entertaining, but the story was predictable. I had a hard time finishing it because it was obvious how it was going to end.
