Publisher's Summary

"Right as I'm about to die, I realize all the myths are fake. There's no white light at the end of a tunnel. My life isn't flashing before my eyes. All I can think about is how much I want to live. "I moved to New York City a month ago to become the best journalist the world had ever seen. To find the greatest stories never told. And now here I am, Henry Parker, 24 years old and weary beyond rational thought, a bullet one trigger-pull from ending my life. I can't run. Running is all Amanda and I have done for the past 72 hours. And I'm tired. Tired of knowing the truth and not being able to tell it.
"Five minutes ago I thought I had the story all figured out. I knew that both of these men - one an FBI agent, the other an assassin - wanted me dead, but for very different reasons. If I die tonight, more people will die tomorrow."

Great audiobook!

This is a fast-paced not predictable thriller from a new author and read by a really good voice. If you like thrillers from Patterson, Stuart Woods or Jonathan Kellerman you'll like this. I'm looking forward to the next book.

Struggled with the rave reviews

Overall, I liked this audiobook, but I cannot for the life of me figure out all the rave reviews.

If you can get past the major characters being complete and total morons, and subsequently making the stupidest human decisions possible just to make a story, you'll like it.

Pinter is a good writer, and shows signs of brilliance, but there should have been more motive behind the idiotic decisions each of the characters make.

The reader is average at best, too often sounding like a B-rate bad actor. I liked his voice, so I hope he improves.

Once you get past the hokey foundation for the story, the book is fun and holds attention. It also concludes quite well.

I struggle to give it a 4-star rating, but will round up in this case.
