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!”

    "No, thank you"

    Scott Brick is a wonderful narrator, but even his skills couldn't entice me to finish this book. I thought it was boring, predictable writing, it didn't capture my interest in the slightest.

    I'm glad that other people seem to be enjoying it. It's just not at all my cup of tea.

    "Exciting"

    Realistic treatment of a young daughter's murder and its effect on the parents and friends. Suspense great. It bothered me when Rafferty gets into trouble, but the story still kept me glued to the end. Scott Brick is a little dramatic for my taste.

    Story
    "Suspensful!"
    Would you listen to You're Next again? Why?

    I would listen again because I feel I might have missed the meaning of a chapter. I felt something was missing at one point and missed the connection.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The patience, resolve and understanding of the wife.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Michael's friend 'Chet' arrived hours early with only the message 'I need you.' His loyality and friendship is so unique and very special.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Too long - but if I could I would.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story line. Keep you thinking and in suspense until the end.

    Story
    "Overall, I think I fell in love with Shep!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would totally recommend this book to anyone! I'm not a huge fan of mysterys, or thrillers but this changed me completely.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the backstory of all the characters, I love that it's different & not like every other book out there. I honestly had no idea where the story was headed & I LOVED that about it.

    Sometimes when certain things were happening I was either yelling out loud in my car or laughing like a maniac! I would root the main character on!


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    OMG, I adore Shep. He made me laugh out loud. I have the biggest crush on him & couldn't wait for all the scenes he was in.


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

    I LOVE the end where the main character goes at it all alone. He has people helping him alone the way but when it matters most he goes at it alone. LOVE!

    The part that really moved me was when he thought his wife died. I totally felt his pain & was crying. When he got gas & said...."last time I got gas, I was married..." I think of that all the time how in an instant your whole life changes.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm usually reading romantic books like Danielle Steel. I am SO glad I chose this book & I immediatly couldn't wait to go get other books by this author. I've never felt compelled to write a review before until now..

    What did you love best about You're Next?

    Lots of action, I was never sure what would happen next


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Shep, he was always so blunt and to the point.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Performance was ok, would have liked more distinction in voice for different characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some of Shep's comments made me laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    Over all was a good read. I would buy books by this author again.

    "Great Narration and Suspense"

    The first 2/3 of this book had me listening every spare moment I could find. During last third, while the suspense remained, the plot became a little absurd. I came away feeling a little let-down by the conclusion. Overall, however, I enjoyed the listen and would recommend the book.

    "Complling & Hard Driving All The Way!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of You're Next to be better than the print version?

    I don't do reviews... Well..almost don't..but this book deserves it. I listen to a lot of books but seldom does any book pick up this fast.. almost from the start.. and continue to escalate without a hick up..or hint of slowing down. This was an excellent book! The highest praise I can give! If this genre is your cup of tea..get ready for a ride!

    "Possibly the BEST book I've read (listened to)"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Amazing perfomance by Scott Brick, who is now my favorite voice actor, with Dick Hill coming in a very close second. The story was very well done and very believable. I couldn't stop listening. Thankfully I drive for about 7 hours a day so it didn't take me long to finish the story. Gregg Hurwitz is now in my top five. Survivor was also very good.


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

    When Mike was was able to drop the bomb on William


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    He can portray a child and woman in a way which Dick Hill just isn't able to. It's not that he sounds effeminate but there is something subtle and subdued in his voice which allows me to picture a woman in my mind as he is speaking. Dick Hill's voice just doesn't have the range or quality I suppose.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope anyone who enjoys reading books or listening to them tries this one. I grew up on Tom Clancy, Michael Chricton and John Grisham novels but haven't done much reading over the last 10 plus years until I got a smart phone and became an Audible memeber. My love of "reading" has kicked back into high gear and I can't wait for the next great book to come my way.

    "This one kept me in suspense"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book, it is well written and the characters work together well, the writer keeps you wondering why the family is in danger almost right up to the end.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick is a good narator and has the ability to bring the characters to life in your mind.


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

    When Mike had to leave Cat at the foster home so she would be safe while he tried to find and stop the people out to kill them.


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't too sure about this book at the beginning because it didn't make much sense why things were happenning, but once it got going it was very compelling.
