‘I know you, don’t I?’
Five words - that’s all it takes to plunge Mike Wingate and his family into mortal danger. Mike doesn’t recognise the crippled stranger who approaches him at a party... but the stranger seems to know all about him. What has Mike done? Do they have the wrong man? Overnight, the threats become attacks, and Mike, his wife, and their young daughter learn they aren’t safe anywhere - especially not their own home. He doesn’t know who they are. He doesn’t know what they want. But there’s no time to figure it out - because his enemies have killed before, and he’s next.

"An exciting and unique rollercoaster ……."
First time I have ventured into the world of Gregg Hurwitz …..brilliant. I could not put it away. I normally use my ipod / audio book to help me go to sleep and if I wake up; send me back to sleep again. I have had very little sleep this week…it was just too exciting..the suspense was heart pounding and the mystery just too intriguing and you just want to know how the characters fare ! I could never have guessed the underlying plot .. What an imagination this author has. The narration captured the characters perfectly – I could have been there; it was like watching a film. My only criticism was that in between sections and chapters – there are very prolonged pauses. The pauses were so long that I kept checking that my ipod had not gone into sleep mode ! I would not let this put you off – well worth a listen.
"I bet you don't guess!!!"
This caused me to wince with horror many a time. An American tale that was gripping throughout. A family man with a past that he cannot guess at nor the listener. The narrator, Jeff Harding, was superb. I thoroughly recommend it.
"A real audio 'page turner"
I couldn't wait to get to each next chapter - this rollicks along fantastically. One plot device towards the end is a little contrived, but necessary after the way in which Hurwitz builds the tension - I can easily forgive. The narration is excellent - it's more like a dramatisation than a reading, and really pleasing to listen to.
If you like psychological thrillers with some action and excellent characterisation, with goodies, baddies and some who havn't decided, then I think you'll enjoy this. I'll be seeing what else Hurwitz has written and download it asap!
"Hooked from the start."
This book believe it or not was personally recommended to me as a top read of 2011 by Simon Toyne the best selling author of the Sanctus Trilogy.
He also recommended Gunshot Straight by Lou Berney which is next on my list to buy. Recommendations don't get much better than this.
"Not unique but very good and gripping"
While not one I will remember and rush back to read again it was a very gripping story and what nightmares are built on.
I have never really been a fan of the one man against the world with impossible odds but this was a goody in that style
"Narrated by the master himself"
I started reading this and found that the repetitiveness of Michael's childhood got really tedious. So I considered returning it to audible for something by an author that I had read before. I decided to read 1 more chapter before I quit then next thing I know I finished it. And it was all too soon. All 56 chapters lol. The book is excellent I was totally stunned when I discovered why the poor main character was having such an awful time of it. But I wont spoil it for you all I will say is hang in there it is well worth the effort! Jeff Harding is my favourite narrator. I have listened and enjoyed his voice in lee child books, john connolly books and some by dean koontz, and many more. He really nails it with his character voices.
I should have tried to get a refund on this as I really didn't enjoy it from the very beginning, but kept thinking it had to get better. Sadly, it didn't. The characters were not believable or interesting, and I couldn't care less who was next or not. Gregg Hurwitz will not be next for me again.
"Great new Author find"
I think I selected this book on reviews and synopsis. Not heard of Gregg before and I'm am just loving this book. Actually I'm enjoying it so much I've in the middle of it whilst writing this review. Well written and easy to listen to - the story is gripping. Based in the present with little jumps back in the past as the back story is integral. The narrator Jeff Harding is doing an excellent job. Think I was a little concerned when I started listening as he has a very strong american accent, don't let that stop you he is brilliant at portraying the characters. I am expecting a strong end and will be off to find more of his books. Hope this is not too preemptive - I'm confident.
"You're Next by Gregg Hurwitz"
This is the first book I have listened to by Hurwitz and what a page turner it would have been if I'd been reading the book. Listening to Jeff harding on various other books which gets into character from the beginning.
"A good listen"
This is an enjoyable book, the story unfolds nicely, and a good opening will ensure you stay to find out what happened. That, along with a few good surprises along the way has made this audio book worth the purchase price. This is the second Gregg Hurwitz book I hav brought, and I do believe I shall be buying a few more soon
