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!”

Mr. Brick nailed the character Shep's voice. This was a suspenseful novel, yet I found myself with a tiny grin every time Shep spoke--because he was just so well done.
In the beginning I found the book a bit slow and thought I wouldn't like it. Nevertheless, I stayed with the book and half way through found it so interesting that I couldn't stop listening. All the sudden the slow beginning made sense and tied in to the outcome of the story nicely.
This is an excellent book if you enjoy it when the protagonist seems to sink deeper into situations that seem impossible to get out of. Listening to this book had me on the edge of my driver’s seat most of the time. Very suspenseful and kept me wondering how the story would conclude from the first twenty minutes.
A great cast of new and, occasionally, unusual characters. The long search for the motive and, ultimately the cast of bad guys who create the scenario of panic and sense of loss. A great reader in Scott Brick.
It was the ah-hah moment when the motive for the trail of misery and panic was revealed.
The main character, the father, because of how the emotional concern was displayed.
We left it alone!. It was too good to rewrite! True to the author's words like
I enjoyed this book. The story is well conceived and executed and Mr. Hurwitz's writing style is well-honed. I was engrossed in the storyline and the characters from the beginning.
Scott Brick's narration is well-suited to the book. It is masterful.
Looking forward to listening to Hurwitz's
I found myself sitting in the car after I reached my destination listening just to hear what was going to happen next!
The charactors come to life
Crazy about books. Romance and military suspense junkie. Reviewing books is just plain old fun.
TOP 5- And I've listened to quite alot of audiobooks.
Greg Hurwitz gives you just enough information to make you feel like you're about to crack this story, but never enough to actually do it. This story was brilliantly constructed.
Nothing. Some say he was too dramatic, but I think he did a great job with bringing out the emotion of the story. He was able to effectively give each character their own distinctive voice and add to their personalities.
I'm an avid reader and I've read lots of genres of books. For me, a big part of what makes this book so enjoyable is that it's unpredictable and it's orignal. It keeps you guessing and thinking about whats going on with the main character. It's also full of emotion. I didn't want to stop listening to this one!
I have worked so hard for so long that I've had very little time to read. Enter iPhone4; now an earbud has cut driving time while I enjoy!!!
This is one of the best page turners I have ever read. Every chapter a sit-on-the-edge-of -your-seat thriller. You cannot even guess at the ending! What more can I say? Read this book if you are looking for a nail-biting fast paced book...you can't put it down! Scott Brick is a very talented reader capturing all the characters perfectly!!
