Publisher's Summary

Mike Wingate had a rough childhood  —  he was abandoned at a playground at four years old and raised in foster care. No one ever came to claim him, and he has only a few, fragmented memories of his parents. Now, as an adult, Mike is finally living the life he had always wanted  —  he’s happily married to Annabel, the woman of his dreams; they have a precocious eight-year-old daughter, Kat; and his construction company is about to finish a “green” housing development that will secure a solid future for them all. Then the unimaginable happens: Something from Mike’s own past, a past he doesn’t even remember, comes back to visit terror upon him and his family. Menacing characters show up and begin threatening Mike, and when he reports them, the police seem more interested in Mike’s murky past than in investigating or protecting his young family. Now, with Mike, his wife, and their daughter suddenly under attack from all sides, Mike must turn to Shep, a truly dangerous man  —  and Mike’s only true friend  —  from their childhood days together in foster care. Together, the two of them will do whatever it takes to protect Mike’s family against the hidden men behind the terrifying warning “You’re Next!”

Edge of my seat.

This was an Audible recommendation based on my previous selections, and after reading the summary, I thought it sounded promising. It certainly delivered on that promise with a tense thriller, well developed characters and a spot on reading by Scott Brick. Brick was consistently good throughout the entire story, but especially great with his voicing of hearing impaired Shep, the friend coming to repay a childhood debt. What a terrific character he is. The danger appears insurmountable, especially as the family has no idea what has brought it into their lives, but their committment to each other is what keeps them going. The story is well paced and plays fair by providing surprising twists without making them so preposterous that belief cannot be suspended. I sacrificed sleep by not being able to turn it off at the end of the day, needing to find out what came next. This author is new to me, but I am now looking at what else he has written. I hope other selections are as good as this one.

Everything a great suspense story should be

This is a great suspense novel. At times the tension is so tight the story had me feeling apprehensive to the point of pacing the floor. I could not leave the ipod in the car, I had to listen to this story on walks, around the house, it is very hard to put down. The characters are well developed, the storyline is complete and you understand the motivations of everyone involved. The villains are truly menacing and the good guys are cut from the fabric of normal life. The writing is solid, the narration is wonderful, on this one Scott Brick is the perfect choice. I go through a lot of audio books during my commute - it is very, very rare to come across a book that is this good. I would highly recommend this book.
