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!”

Just when you thought the story could not get more exciting - it did!
I truly felt like I was on a long jog - and then was forced to jog further. In fact, this is the first audio book I felt compelled to listen to during my daily workout - could not put it down.
Definitely worth listening to again. The first listen is too full of tension on the listener's end. Want to hear it again and pick up even more threads of this great plot.
Shep: Loyal, dependable, forgiving, brings solutions to the situations - not more problems. Forges ahead despite the many strikes already against him.
Shep: Scott Brick portrays this person so very realistically. Having worked with hearing impaired individuals, Scott Brick performs Shep's speech in a realistic, believable manner, leaving the listener with a clear
Looking forward to more books by this author.
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.
SCOTT BRICK IS EXCELLENT AND I PURCHASED THIS BOOK BECAUSE OF HIS RECOMMENDATION AS ONE HE READ THAT KEPT HIS INTEREST BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNEW WHERE IT WAS GOING TO TAKE YOU. THIS BOOK IS SCARY AND VERY INTERESTING. HE IS RIGHT YOU CAN'T GUESS THE ENDING OR WHAT IS COMING UP NEXT.
YES AND HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN GOOD
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
