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!”

This guy is really cheesy

This is my first Gregg Hurwitz novel, and my last. Hurwitz is the cheesiest author I've listened to in years.The author's writing style is extremely sophomoric. I couldn't get through the first 4 chapters before getting tired of his "PC" pablum. I had to listen to this book in small increments, and finally reaching the grueling end of this boring book.

Its basically every action movie ever made

the book wasn't bad. there were several moments where it had me sucked in really deeply and intensely but for the most part I found it to be cliche and uninspiring. if action movies are your favorite genre than you will probably like this book. the voice actor was extremely Bland and displayed very little emotion

Terrible storyline!

Long-winded story. Hardly a point- and when the point is revealed its really stupid. narrator is good. Do not waste your time with this silly book.

Very Dissapointed

I bought this book because I listened to another book (Orphan X) by this author. I loved Orphan X. This book was awful. It was way too long, too repetitive. Plot was not even partially believable. I got sick of the repetitiveness of the main family characters. Could have used more of Shep. It was one of those books that was so bad I kept going back to it in hopes something would develop but it did not. The reader was very good.

Edge of my seat.

This was an Audible recommendation based on my previous selections, and after reading the summary, I thought it sounded promising. It certainly delivered on that promise with a tense thriller, well developed characters and a spot on reading by Scott Brick. Brick was consistently good throughout the entire story, but especially great with his voicing of hearing impaired Shep, the friend coming to repay a childhood debt. What a terrific character he is. The danger appears insurmountable, especially as the family has no idea what has brought it into their lives, but their committment to each other is what keeps them going. The story is well paced and plays fair by providing surprising twists without making them so preposterous that belief cannot be suspended. I sacrificed sleep by not being able to turn it off at the end of the day, needing to find out what came next. This author is new to me, but I am now looking at what else he has written. I hope other selections are as good as this one.

Depressing!

This is no Orphan X. I dragged myself through 9% of this book then had to stop.

What a Disappointment

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Way too much drama in the reading. The book was meant to move along. If it was supposed to be a thriller, the story should move along not drag. Less pausing, less detail, and a shorter book would have made it better.

What could Gregg Hurwitz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not get caught up with silly details. Some of the descriptions of emotions and repeating the anxious moments were just not necessary. Some situations pretty unbelievable

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

Anyone who could have been more matter of fact and move the story along.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It was a mystery.

Could not finish

The main character theoretically toughened by a hard childhood is completely self pitying and unable to control his emotions. This is made worse by the tone of the narrator. Listening longer just increased my displeasure and I quit about half way through
