Publisher's Summary

When you're going through hell, keep going....
One man is on the hunt, and one man intends to take his liberty....
Only one will succeed....
Imprisoned for the attempted murder of a federal agent, former homicide detective Gabe Quinn is keen to make amends for his mistakes. So when a gruesome murder forces his freedom, he is determined to do everything in his power to bring the killer to justice and prove himself to the FBI.
But the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and the killer has something else in mind for Gabe Quinn - something that will raze everything he knows to the ground.
Drawn into a desperate chase against the killer's deadline, Gabe is forced to stand accountable for the decisions of his past and face the ultimate question: Could you give your life to save someone else?
Author's note: The events in this book follow on from those in Killing Hope and Crossing Lines. To get the most out of the ongoing back story, I recommend listening to the first two books before enjoying this one. That way the events will have a fuller meaning, and the sub-plots will make more sense.

The ending will leave you breathless...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It happens to be a really good book. Lots of convoluted psychotic relationships, great character development and interesting plot that is believable.

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

After listening to three Gabe Quinn books narrated by David Doersch, he IS the voice of Quinn. I hope he will continue to narrate these books.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

THE END! And WOW what an ending it is!

Any additional comments?

I would suggest reading/listening to the first two books prior to this one as the characters build on the previous books and although some background is given on familial and other relationships I can see where this book could get confusing without. The first two are excellent books also, each ending with a cliff hanger that will leave you wanting more. This book however has an ending that leaves you absolutely dumbstruck!! I cannot wait for the next book and can only imagine how Keith Houghton could possibly top this one. Very talented author. I Highly Recommend this book.
Thank You for reading this and if you find it helpful please let me know. I like letting other people know if I think a book is worthwhile and I certainly purchase many based on reviews by others.

All Action, Poor Narrative

Gabe Quinn Book 3: This book reminds me of a good car chase. But a car chase is just one part of a good movie or good book. In this book, MOST of the writing describes feverish action, near-death incidences, fights to the finish, explosions, etc. The STORY is lacking.

I still like Gabe Quinn, the character, and I was happy to get some resolution to the events described in books 1 and 2. The narrator improved his British accent, and his other voices (varying voices for Americans) were very good.

I admire the author's use of descriptive phrases; often one if his choice phrases has made me laugh out loud. For example, one of the bad guys had a big, beefy face that looked like folded wet laundry. (Or something like that - I wish I had written it down.)

Mr. Houghton's narrative style is extreme, and I am tired of the pattern: whoever seems to be a good guy is not, whoever seems to have been killed is still alive, and whenever a sensible course of action suggests itself, Quinn will do the opposite. I think I have had enough. If Mr. Houghton writes another book, and the ending to this one indicates he will, I will not buy it.
