You're Next

Mike Wingate had a rough childhood  —  he was abandoned at a playground at four years old and raised in foster care.

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!”

    "Really incredible book!"

    I don't think I have anything else by this author but this book had me up all hours because I could not stop listening. Thanks for putting this one on sale Audible - it was great. The story was exciting, sad and triumphant. Scott Brick was exceptional.

    "Unique story"

    A very enjoyable plot that holds the reader's attention. The characters are interesting, the narration quite enjoyable, and the story keeps on track without the burden of "thought you were done, didn't you?" type of multiple endings that too may thriller writers enjoy.

    "What a Ride!"

    What can I say besides that I loved this book! Each page brought me closer to finding out what this mystery was all about (but that was part of the fun in reading it in the first place). The book has a lot to do about money and ambition, family, and doing the right thing. Kept me guessing until the very end. What a ride!

    "great ride"
    What did you love best about You're Next?

    It gripped me from the beginning and didn't let go. At times it was almost upsetting, it was so suspenseful. I often listen to books to fall asleep, but this one kept me awake. While the story line was pretty improbable, I didn't really care. What I did care about is that the characters were true and had depth. I think they were all true to themselves and their choices rang true to me. I totally didn't see the resolution coming and I liked that too. Highly recommend this book if you like the thriller genre.

    Story
    "Got Lucky With This One"
    If you could sum up You're Next in three words, what would they be?

    Not your usual. I had this on my wish list for a long time, finally took a chance and downloaded it. I was very glad for a story that kept my attention and kept me guessing.


    What other book might you compare You're Next to and why?

    The Woodcutter perhaps. The character's backstory is as riveting as the present threat.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The introduction of the main character's childhood friend.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction. Just a good, solid, well-told tale.


    Any additional comments?

    The author does a very good job of weaving events and characters into focus. No wasted effort, everything ties neatly here and there. The result is a satisfying story with characters you slowly get to know and like, or not, as the case may be with the heavies. Even then, you are confronted with a sympathetic thread or two.

    Story
    "Loved it - frightening realistic!"
    What did you love best about You're Next?

    Stayed on the edge of my seat througout. Would never have guessed who was after this man or his daughter or why.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Shep - the safe cracker - whose motto of "the only things that matter in life are stamina & loyalty".


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    I think Scott Brick could read me the back of a cereal box and I would stay interested!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A strong case for the fact that life does not necessarily have to "repeat itself"!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the book. Am going to download more Gregg Hurwitz as soon as I have credits!

    "You'll like it!"

    Although some people didn't like Scott Brick, I didn't mind him as an narrator. I have listened to other books he has done and like his calm style. I think the main character in the book has been working hard, most of his adult life, to keep his life looking as average as possible. I think the restrained narration brings those feelings to the character. I liked the suspense in this book. You are surprised in many of the plot twist and most of them feel believable. It is one of those books you can see easily turning into a movie. The only thing I found annoying was the daughter character. She was way too precocious for 8. Over all, I think it was a credit well spent. Not the best book I've ever read but a good read none the less.

    "Sucked me in right away!"

    Lots of times I start a book in the car and can go weeks before I am traveling again and pick it up. Sometimes I can't even remember what the book was about and have to rewind it. "You're Next" was the type of thriller I couldn't put down. I listened to it on walks, doing dishes and any chance I got.
