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 ranks in the top third of audiobooks I've listened to.
Character development and tension building, Scott Brick just keeps getting better. His brilliant reading is big factor in the book's success.
This story kept me listening just to find out why the main character was being chased and harassed by these individuals. Quite the ending, it seems as though it all wrapped up in the last 10 minutes or so, however......
This was an unexpected surprise. I hadn't even heard of this author and was very pleased with the story and the overall audio performance.
I liked the way the story flipped between the present and flashbacks. The suspense, dark angles, and even tender moments all tied together to make this a very good read.
It took a little getting used to the narrator's voice/performance...just different from what I had previously been listening to, but soon enough, he had me roped in.
Honestly, I listened to this book because it was less than $6 and I had some credits, but I was very pleasantly surprised and will definitely be listening to this author again.
It was a Good Listen... I am currently looking at more of Gregg's books...The reason I bought this book in the first place was Scott Brick... He is leading me to more authors then I would have tried on my own... He is a GREAT Narrator...
The plot kept me going... I drive a truck for 8.5 to 9 hrs a day so it's nice to listen to books that don't lull me to sleep... This book did NOT put me to sleep... I will buy more of Gregg's Books...
Please have Scott Brick read more of your books...Thanks for the Great listen...
Say something about yourself!
I found this thriller exciting and interesting all the way through. I thought his wife was over the top and I started to get annoyed by her but her characterization was not a major turnoff. The abandonment of Mike as a child was a good touch and was well integrated into the story.
Story was great. Kept me thinking.
The friend. Because of his hearing.
No I have not.
Nothing extreme but a good listen.
Mike's best friend Shep.
The first few chapters were a little slow, but I picked up midway through the book and it maintained a good level intensity after that.
You are hooked the minute the book starts. A great story. You will enjoy it.
Yes; he is one of my favorite readers. Sometimes I will read a book just because he is the reader.
There is not much more that I can add to what is already been said about this book.... I had trouble putting it down. Great read. Great story. It has you sitting on the edge of your chair as to what will happen next..... The write up sounded like it might be a good read, but I really didn't expect to be kept on the edge .
