A vigilante group made up of people like himself, relentless streetwise operators who have each lost a loved one to violent crime, the Commission confronts the failings of a system that sets predators loose to hunt again, cleaning up society's "mistakes" covertly, efficiently, and permanently. But Rackley soon discovers that playing God is a fearsome task. When his new secret life starts coming unwound at an alarming speed, he is suddenly caught in the most terrifying struggle he has ever faced, a desperate battle to save everything left that's worth fighting for.

"Hurwitz's deft descriptions of Tim's methods of disappearing, breaking-and-entering, and stealing identities are convincing, and his fast-paced plotting will keep readers riveted." (Publishers Weekly)
A good book, a little slow to start, but picked up and got very interesting.
"You're Next" is another Hurwitz book that's even better, especially in audible format. A bit long, but gripping.
The story is a parent's nightmare and a story of restraint and a search for the truth. I have yet to come upon a Hurwitz book I didn't like and he stays at the top of my favorite author lists.
The thing that WOW'd me was Peter Friedman. He has a most amazing range. Hard to believe he can shift his voice the way he does and for so many characters. I'm hooked on author and narrator now.
I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.
The good ratings swayed me into buying this book. Deja vu "The Chamber" with a twist. I found this book difficult to get through. I normally finish the books that I download in just a few days. This relatively short book took me over a week to finish. Since I have enjoyed this author in the past I will try him again. I just couldn't connect with this one.
