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!”

I really expected to like this book........but I didn't. The daughter really annoyed me. Even accounting for the circumstances, she acted like no 8-year-old I've ever known! I know there are violent people in this world, but the actions of some of the characters in this book strained my imagination. The hero was transformed from a middle-of-the-road substantial citizen to a violent-beyond-belief character in the blink of an eye.
Didn't even listen to the last three or four hours. I know how it ends because I fell asleet while it was playing and heard the end...........but I just wasn't interested enough to go back and find out what happened in between.
I couldn't get past chapter three. I just couldn't stand the narrator. Disappointed as I was looking forward to the story.
I just hated it!
After the first 12 chapters I had to start skipping forward.
the last 25% was Ok but it was not worth a credit...
I have no Idea. It was a strain for me to comtinue made it through 10 chapters,
I guess so. The commentator was boring, and no expression in his voice. Slow monotone
I was not impressed. Wore me out listening to him. Too slow, and no character to his voice
The author failed to do his research. Multiple factual errors, some of them critical to plot and action, spoiled the story for me. Yes, you can subpoena records from an Indian reservation, you just need a district court to do it. There is no way you can drive a vehicle waiting to be crushed, because all fluids and the battery have been removed. The author's lack of attention to detail is insulting to the reader.
Less back and for with the litle boy waiting in the bay window.
Not sure yet
He did good.
I just try to cut off some of the bad language it take some of the trama out of the focus.
This was my first Gregg Hurwitz book and I am so excited to have discovered him. He is a great storyteller, even better than Michael Connelly, Christopher Reich, and Lee Child (well, in this book since it's the only one of his I've read so far). Exciting, moving, and thoroughly entertaining!!
Very much enjoyed the story - although a stretch in some places still a feel good mystery.
Not made his total win so big - cmon...$3M a month for owning a casino.. Should have been happy to just get out alive without all the money.
İt was extremely monotone and tidious, except for dialogues. İt felt like he would burst into tears any time during the narration. İn my opinion,he would make an excellent necrology, eulogy or funeral speech deliverer.
A good book overall, unexpected ending, original plot.
Nothing socially or morally redeeming
dark, dysfuctional, bad descision making characters, too much angst over obvious bad decisions without changing direction.
everyone sounded like a shady character
too dark for me, no suggestions
