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!”

    "Kept me in a tense mood - thrilling"
    What made the experience of listening to You're Next the most enjoyable?

    Very much enjoyed the story - although a stretch in some places still a feel good mystery.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    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.

    "Narrator almost spoiled the story"
    What didn’t you like about Scott Brick’s performance?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    A good book overall, unexpected ending, original plot.

    What disappointed you about You're Next?

    Nothing socially or morally redeeming


    What was most disappointing about Gregg Hurwitz’s story?

    dark, dysfuctional, bad descision making characters, too much angst over obvious bad decisions without changing direction.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    everyone sounded like a shady character


    What character would you cut from You're Next?

    too dark for me, no suggestions

    no

    "Didn't want to sleep."

    This is by far the best book I have listened to in a very long time. Now I love Scott Brick and his voice is more than enough to make me listen to anything he reads but this book was amazing. My first Hurwitz book but definitely not my last.

    Story
    "A normal life turned upside down."
    Would you consider the audio edition of You're Next to be better than the print version?

    Yes. The best friend character was represented in such a way as to help you understand his difficulties coping.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You're Next?

    When you finally realized the reason behind all the turmoil.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I would listen to anything Scott Brick read. He is one of my favorites.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All of the moments with his daughter were very touching and agonizing.

    "Hurwitz added to my fav authors"

    This book had me from the first words. Of course, Scott Brick is a wonderful narrator and could make any book come alive. Hurwitz's characters are strong and I immediately felt attached to the story. The "stamina" and "loyalty" message of the book, as illustrated through Michael's various relationships and challenges, was refreshing in a book filled with suspense and violence. I would recommend this book.

    Story
    "When you know you're next, Run!"

    Michael Wingate has only a few sparse memories of his childhood. Abandoned on a playground at the age of four, knowing only his first name, Michael grew up as Mike Doe. For years Michael would sit by the picture window of his foster home, waiting for his father to return.

    Now, all grown up, Michael has more than he could want - a good job, a beautiful wife, and a loving daughter. Despite all this, Michael continues to search for the parents he barely remembers, enlisting the help of a private detective.

    Then, on the eve he is given a special award for a building project, a sunflower seed chewing cripple and his oafish sidekick begin to harass Michael. Within days, the harassment escalates. Michael knows they want something, but what? Michael calls an old foster-home buddy, Shep, for help after receiving a cryptic text message: You're Next.

    The story keeps you guessing who is the mastermind and Scott Brick's voice for Shep is wonderful.

    "GREAT BOOK YOU AREN'T SURE WHERE IT MIGHT TAKE YOU"
    If you could sum up You're Next in three words, what would they be?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    YES AND HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN GOOD

    Story
    "Engaging even with Brick's sing-song narration"

    Usually I pass right over anything that Scott narrates as I've experienced his delivery as just too sing song to keep me alert. However the reviews and synopsis of the novel really seemed to be intriguing.

    I'm glad I took the chance. Hurwitz had me guessing throughout most of the novel and the pacing was such that I was fully engaged from the beginning and found myself drawn back to listening for more throughout my day. Not one of those stories that have me hoping for a series with characters I haven't had enough of but still a worthwhile read.
