I'm getting the feeling that Jim Grippando is partial to hostage situations. My last listen was When Darkness Falls, which contained an interminable hostage situation in a motel room. Well, we have more of the same here, this time in the studios of a television station (this fact won't spoil the plot). On the plus side, Grippando has a very believable character in Jack Swytek. His foibles and shortcomings make him almost too believable. Unfortunately the same can't be said for a few of the other characters, most notably the Greek and, well, you'll have to discover for yourself. The story we're asked to believe is farfetched, to put it lightly. And the final unraveling of the plot at the conclusion strains credulity. With all of that said, somehow I enjoyed this book. Grippando writes well and if his imagination is in overdrive for this story, so be it.

Overall ok. I thought it was going to be a self help book I had been reccomend by a similar title. Regardless, I like a good suspense/ mystery so i stuck with it. I couldn't decide if this book was a motivational read for those reaching the middle of their lives, or a young adult suspense novel that pushed semi-political issues. I'd reccomend to a friends who like the genre, or maybe not. The Author got my money, and I got a few laughs. hopefully that's enough for this life.
