Publisher's Summary

Jarvis Thompson, the most celebrated wide receiver in college football, vanishes along the Tennessee River in the middle of the night. 

The circumstances surrounding the receiver’s disappearance are ominous: drugs, cash, and his mentor’s brother lying in a pool of blood. 

It’s up to Jarvis’s mentor and soon-to-be agent Billy Beckett to investigate the mystery and find his beloved protege before the clock runs out. Was it a brazen kidnapping? A setup? Or did Jarvis get in too deep and run? In a frantic quest that takes Billy from the mountains of East Tennessee to the South Carolina coast to the gritty streets of New Orleans, the agent knows careers - and lives - are on the line. 

As the two men’s pasts collide, both Jarvis and Billy are suddenly embroiled in a terrifying, high-stakes game where winners live and losers die.

Best narrator and author duo

I am sad, actually heartbroken to hear of Scott Pratts death. Mr. Pratt leaped to the top of my favorite author list after reading book 1- he had me at Joe Dillard. Mr. Campbell's narration and Pratt's characters/story line go together like "peas and carrots". I will look forward to new books authored by Kelly Hodge with hopes that his characters and writing style will be similar to Scott Pratt. Thanks for the great reading Mr. Pratt you will be missed.

First Scott Pratt novel since his death

I assume Kelly Hodge completed DEEP THREAT after Scott Pratt's accidental death late in 2018. The writing is similar to Pratt's. It is an outstanding novel.

I've spent many hours reading/listening to the outstanding work of Scott Pratt. He is missed.

Tim Campbell's narration is stellar as always.

Excellent Story & Performance!!!

I am deeply saddened that this is Scott Pratt’s last book. I lived for his new books to be released. Also Tm Campbell is an outstanding performer, I love the way he brings life to every character.

Almost punted, but decided to go long

Having read several of the late Scott Pratt's Joe Dillard works with relish and appreciation, I was looking forward to how Billy Beckett's character would serve the story. Took a while to warm to the plotting, but I appreciated the insights into the culture of SEC football and its rites and rituals, e.g. the Bama weekend in Knoxville. Tim Campbell's narration was spot-on and for the most part the voices/characterizations were easy to distinguish. The motive for the major plot element was a bit of a "hidden ball trick" that only became apparent at the end could have been foreshadowed. Readers in general might have had more skin in the game had there been some seeds sown earlier in the story development. Scott, we're sorry you are no longer with us.

So So

Fifteen words to leave a review. I listened all the way through. I guess that says something. But I wasn’t waiting till the next moment I could listen again between pauses either.

It’s a pop corn book. Don’t think too hard

Very Enjoyable

I so miss Scott Pratt and his legacy of great works. Hopefully Kelly Hodge will pick up the baton and continue on with the Billy Beckett series. Mr. Pratt would approve!
