Publisher's Summary

Mike Wingate had a rough childhood  —  he was abandoned at a playground at four years old and raised in foster care. No one ever came to claim him, and he has only a few, fragmented memories of his parents. Now, as an adult, Mike is finally living the life he had always wanted  —  he’s happily married to Annabel, the woman of his dreams; they have a precocious eight-year-old daughter, Kat; and his construction company is about to finish a “green” housing development that will secure a solid future for them all. Then the unimaginable happens: Something from Mike’s own past, a past he doesn’t even remember, comes back to visit terror upon him and his family. Menacing characters show up and begin threatening Mike, and when he reports them, the police seem more interested in Mike’s murky past than in investigating or protecting his young family. Now, with Mike, his wife, and their daughter suddenly under attack from all sides, Mike must turn to Shep, a truly dangerous man  —  and Mike’s only true friend  —  from their childhood days together in foster care. Together, the two of them will do whatever it takes to protect Mike’s family against the hidden men behind the terrifying warning “You’re Next!”

    What did you love best about You're Next?

    I wasn't expecting the outcome. Was a nice plot twist!

    I think Scott did a wonderful job of portraying the nearly-deaf best friend, Shep.

    Story
    "Written for telling"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I truly enjoyed this book. The narrator brought it to life for me. I read reviews on other books about how the narrator distracted from their stories. This book is quite the opposite. I can not imagine this book without hearing the narrator.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The story was ok and in some places predictable and in others it felt like it dragged. Don't get me wrong, it was a good story with great characters but it suffers from what most other books suffer from, how to give enough backstory while keeping you interested. This one had parts that felt slow to me.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    The narrator made this book great. I am looking for other books narrated by Scott Brick!

    Story
    "Decent whodunit"

    I find that, as my mind wanders, I often need to re-listen to parts of audiobooks to get what's happening. But this story kept me interested and involved. It's an easy listen. Not the most original story or with the most compelling characters, but decent enough.

    Story
    "BEST book I've listened to in a LONG time!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of You're Next to be better than the print version?

    Actually, I think with this book I would. Being able to hear Shep speak was probably better than what he'd have sounded like in my head if I'd read the book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You're Next?

    I think every second of it was memorable. It is a very fast-paced book and if I'd have had the time, I would have listened to it all at once. It, for me, was one of those you just don't want to put down.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    It took me just a few minutes to get used to his portrayal of the female character(s). (I'm not a fan of men trying to sound like females. Most of the time it just doesn't work, in my opinion.) But after I got used to him, I enjoyed everything about his performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    How much and what all Mike did to protect his little girl and how patient he was with her.


    Any additional comments?

    Get this book! I don't think you'll be disappointed. I've already recommended it to a lot of my friends, and can't wait to pick out my next Hurwitz book!

    "No, thank you"

    Scott Brick is a wonderful narrator, but even his skills couldn't entice me to finish this book. I thought it was boring, predictable writing, it didn't capture my interest in the slightest.

    I'm glad that other people seem to be enjoying it. It's just not at all my cup of tea.

    "Exciting"

    Realistic treatment of a young daughter's murder and its effect on the parents and friends. Suspense great. It bothered me when Rafferty gets into trouble, but the story still kept me glued to the end. Scott Brick is a little dramatic for my taste.

    "Suspensful!"
    Would you listen to You're Next again? Why?

    I would listen again because I feel I might have missed the meaning of a chapter. I felt something was missing at one point and missed the connection.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The patience, resolve and understanding of the wife.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Michael's friend 'Chet' arrived hours early with only the message 'I need you.' His loyality and friendship is so unique and very special.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too long - but if I could I would.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story line. Keep you thinking and in suspense until the end.

    "Overall, I think I fell in love with Shep!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would totally recommend this book to anyone! I'm not a huge fan of mysterys, or thrillers but this changed me completely.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the backstory of all the characters, I love that it's different & not like every other book out there. I honestly had no idea where the story was headed & I LOVED that about it.

    Sometimes when certain things were happening I was either yelling out loud in my car or laughing like a maniac! I would root the main character on!


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    OMG, I adore Shep. He made me laugh out loud. I have the biggest crush on him & couldn't wait for all the scenes he was in.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I LOVE the end where the main character goes at it all alone. He has people helping him alone the way but when it matters most he goes at it alone. LOVE!

    The part that really moved me was when he thought his wife died. I totally felt his pain & was crying. When he got gas & said...."last time I got gas, I was married..." I think of that all the time how in an instant your whole life changes.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm usually reading romantic books like Danielle Steel. I am SO glad I chose this book & I immediatly couldn't wait to go get other books by this author. I've never felt compelled to write a review before until now..
