Publisher's summary

Somebody’s gunning for Josh Michaels. They must be. There’s no other reason why a stranger would run him off the road, taunt him with a “thumbs-down”, and leave him to die. Josh may have made some messy mistakes in the past, but who’s suddenly decided that he’s worth more dead than alive? As more and more near-fatal accidents befall him, there can be no denying it: he’s got a bull’s-eye on his back. But why? Is it revenge? Mistaken identity? Or is it something far more insidious?

As Josh runs for his life, he does his best to run down the truth. What he uncovers makes his blood run cold. But no one, not even the cops, will believe that he’s the latest victim of a sinister conspiracy determined to cash in on his corpse.

Cat with nine lives

Well, Simon Wood did it again! This book had me flying by the seat of my pants. It's like seeing some really horrific picture or terrifying movie scene where you want to make it stop but at the same time you can't seem to look away because it's so morbidly fascinating in some strange way. I always ask myself why I keep reading/listening but I can't help it. His work leaves me traumatized, but in a good way lol. By the end of this one, I think I was suffering from Stockholm syndrome because I was starting to have compassion for The Professional. I wasn't crazy about Josh's wife. I can see her being upset and maybe not being able to forgive but seems like she didn't care that he was in danger. I could never guess where the author was taking me. That's one thing about his books, they are always full of surprises. The ending was AMAZING! I never expected the way this ended. I had to sit back and close my eyes for a second to let it all sink in. You will cuss, you will cry but you will also be punching the air screaming "YES"!

If you are listening to this in audiobook form, you will love the narrator. I think he is my favorite out of all Simon's narrators. Very good at doing voices.

Narration was boring and all British in a California setting

Wrong narrator for a book set in California. Narrator was boring and so was book, so together it was painful to listen to. I kept listening hoping the story would at least improve, unfortunately it didn't. If I were to write a book it would probably be this bad. That's why I'm a reader and not a writer. I will be crossing this author and narrator off my list.
