Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

“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)

Great Listen, Salted with Humor

David is among my top authors. He manages to always spin a good yarn that is both an easy listen & frought with many twists & turns. I can always count on a easy listen to a very good story when I listen to a Rosenfelt Audio Book, Down to the Wire is no exception. I highly recomend it. You too may begin to follow fun David.

Waste of credits

Having just finished the Andy Carpenter series of books I was looking for some more similar entertainment. I should have paid attention to the one very negative review - it is really hard to believe this is written by the same author! The plot is shallow, the characters are unlikeable and not believable, and the narrator probably made it all worse with stagey bad guy voices that sounded the same as old lady voices. There is no humor in this book either.
