Publisher's Summary

Fifteen seconds can tear your life apart....
Henry Steadman didn't know what was about to hit him when he pulled up to a red light. A successful Florida plastic surgeon, he is in town to deliver a keynote address at a conference when suddenly his life becomes an unrelenting chase to stay alive.
Stopped by the police for a minor traffic violation, the situation escalates and he is pulled from his vehicle, handcuffed, and told he is under arrest. Several other police cars arrive and the questioning turns scary, but just as Henry is released and about to move on, a blue sedan pulls up and the officer is suddenly killed. As the car speeds away, there is only one suspect left behind - Henry. In that moment, his idyllic life becomes a free fall into hell as he becomes the target of a police manhunt, as well as being pursued by a cunning, unnamed perpetrator bent on some kind of vengeance.
When Henry turns to a close friend for help, and he, too, ends up dead, Henry realizes he's being elaborately framed. But in a chilling twist, the stakes grow even darker, and he is unable to go to the police to clear his name, without bringing on dire and deadly consequences.
With breakneck pacing and nonstop action, 15 Seconds shows what can happen when even the best life is turned upside down in an instant. It is also the story of an innocent man, framed for murder, who has to save the person he loves the most, all while being drawn closer and closer to an inevitable face-to-face standoff with a man determined to destroy his life.

Unforgettable suspense

What did you love best about 15 Seconds?

The excellent dramatation of the storyline. The unknowing reason why the hero is being persecuted and loosing his life as he knows it.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes indeed. I could never anticipate the next event about to be unfolded. I became just as irritated as the hero when all these terrible things started to happen to him. Once the reader finally understands, then it's a race to the finish to see it good can conquer evil.

Which character – as performed by Christian Hoff – was your favorite?

The hero, of course. I also identified with the woman who helps him from Community Relations of the local Police Dept.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

Truly an excellent read, the best drama I've read in a very long time. It compares to "Hold Tight" by Harlan Coben.

Loved it!

Where does 15 Seconds rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have always liked Andrew Gross's characters, needs to be made into a movie. It was suspenseful and fun.

What does Christian Hoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The tone of his voice was exciting.

Any additional comments?

My husband is not a lover of audio books, but he got hooked on this book.
