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!”

This book kept me interested from start to finish. Difinitely worth giving it a try
Fast moving, creative
I would have had a little less story going all over the place.
Probably where the main character described his childhood at the foster home.
Defintely better in audio. Narrator excellent.
I would have to say the lead protagonist. The writer really gets you to identify with his struggles and previous childhood.
All of it.
Edge of your seat suspense!
didn't read the print version, but really enjoyed the audio version, the narrator really brought the book to life.
he brought the story to life and i was so mesmerized that i was completely absorbed into the story.
i liked this book so well i will be checking out some of his other books.
It started a little slow but when it got going, I loved the story and the way it exploded towards the end. The narrator did a fantastic job, especially with Shep's character. I find myself mimicking him now. A great listen !! I will look up another Gregg Hurwitz book now.
This is a recommended listen for sure, with the caveat that the listener needs to be prepared to suspend disbelief and just enjoy the ride. The author is a great storyteller, and this is an action-packed tale which unfolds at breakneck speed, captivating the listener.
Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators, bringing characters to life!
A very vanilla story. Not the best suspense novel out there but not the worst. I listen to audiobooks when I run and while it got me through the run I didn't listen to it between runs and I had a tough time remembering it just now for this review.
There were parts where I would have covered my eyes if it were a movie or taken a break if it were a book. I'll for sure try another.
This is a great book narrated by one of the best in the business. This will not be my last
Gregg Hurwitz book. Highly recommend.
Hurwitz has mastered the fast-paced thriller, though the end is a little weak in my opinion.
Hurwitz has a great imagination; I couldn't predict where the story was going.
Brick puts just the right amount of emotion into the narrative, though he mispronounces some words. That's irritating to an English teacher.
