As a small-town reporter for the Bergen News, Chris Turley could never measure up to his father, Edward - one of the last great investigative journalists. With his father's legend ever-present, Chris dreams of his own Pulitzer, as he bides his time covering press conferences and town hall meetings. Then one day his fortunes turn.
While waiting to interview a source, Chris witnesses the explosion of a nearby office building and is thrust into action rescuing five people from near-certain death. His firsthand account in the next day's newspaper makes him an instant hero and a celebrity. And that's not all. The source's next tip leads to a second headline-grabbing story.
Suddenly, Chris' career is looking a lot more like his father's. But what seemed like a reporter's dream quickly becomes an inescapable nightmare. This anonymous source has had a plan for Chris all along, and his fortune for being in the right place at the right time is not a coincidence at all.
Down to the Wire, David Rosenflet's shocking new thriller about an ordinary man who gets exactly what he's always wanted at a price he can never pay, is an intense thrill ride that will keep listeners from wanting to press pause right up to the end.
“High-voltage entertainment from an author who plots and writes with verve and wit....Plot twists and red herrings abound, and Rosenfelt ratchets up tension with the precision of a skilled auto mechanic wielding a torque wrench.” (Booklist)
