Publisher's Summary

Jesse Kellerman's debut thriller wowed the critics. His latest sets the bar even higher. Young, idealistic, and overworked, Jonah is living the lonely life of a medical student in New York City when he accidentally stumbles across a murder in progress: a woman, being stabbed to death in the middle of the sidewalk. Without thinking, he rushes in to protect her, inadvertently killing her attacker in the process. Thrust into the media spotlight, crushed by guilt, Jonah quickly learns that heroism isn't all it's cracked up to be. He receives a shower of unwanted attention and hostility from his superiors. The district attorney wants to "interview" him. The family of the dead man wants revenge. Everything is further upended when the woman whose life he saved shows up at his apartment. What begins as a thank-you drink turns into a wildly passionate love affair. As their relationship deepens, however, Jonah realizes that she isn't quite the woman she appears to be. His nightmare has only begun, and the price of kindness will turn out to be higher than he could have imagined. Expertly crafted and chillingly suspenseful, Trouble is a heart-stopper - proof positive that Jesse Kellerman has joined the "first ranks of mystery and suspense writers" (Forbes).

What the Critics Say

"Kellerman...shows that his impressive debut, Sunstroke, was no fluke with this gripping psychological page-turner that echoes the best of Hitchcock." (Publishers Weekly)

Most Helpful

Too realistic for me.

This whole thing was too possible and too disturbing for me. It was not a good follow-up to "Me & Emma." After reading the first half, I was getting in such a bad mood that I finally skipped to the end. I guess that the fact that it disturbed me so much means that it was well done. BTW, this should be classified as "horror" and not as "psych suspense."

Narrator not to my taste

I've now listened to two books read by Scott Brick and will purchase no more. In my opinion, he reads at least 20% too slowly and provides dramatic emphasis when none is required.
