Now coping with the blame-filled words of anguished widows and the suspicions of colleagues, Web tries to put his life back together with the help of his psychiatrist, Dr. Claire Daniels. To do so he must discover why he was the one man who lived through the ambush - and find the only other person who came out of that alley alive...a 10-year-old boy who has since disappeared.
Web's search leads him from inner-city Washington, DC, to the rolling hills of Virginia horse country - while people connected to him are violently silenced. Acting on his instincts, Web believes he knows where the killer will strike next. Only this time, he may not survive the attack.
Last Man Standing is an explosive psychological thriller about a man desperate to find answers - from the secret terrors he has kept from himself to his unbearable guilt. His fight to save himself and those he cares for will come at a high cost...and threaten everything he has grown to believe in.
"Has the essential elements of a terrific novel: a tough but tender-hearted hero, dirty dealings in the nation's bureaucracy, and a roller-coaster plot." (Amazon.com)

I liked it, but not for everyone
A lot of complaints about this book are about the detail. Personally, I didn't find that at all disturbing. The protagonist is a fully developed character that the reader comes to know very well. I was surprised by the ending, and I wondered why I didn't suspect it. It did get a little longwinded for my taste at the end, but there were many loose ends to tie up, and even though not every storyline is resolved, I felt satisfied with the ending.

I am definately confused. I read the first couple reviews for this book and saw that they were decidedly against this book. But after reviewing a couple others I saw promise. So I listened to the book and can't understand the first ones. The book was well written and definately well develeped without wasting too much time on details. The details do however bring you into the world of Webb London, the protagonist. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it.
