I had the good fortune of reading this book while my band was on tour. From the first page, Leverone kicks down the doors with a tense, tightly plotted thriller that will keep you turning pages into the night. Just when you think a hostage situation couldn't get any more tense, bam, the situation escalates. Grab this book and get ready for a wild ride.

Awesome read! I jumped at the chance to read this because one of my favorite recent authors, Vin Zandri, had written an excellent review for it. As usual, Vin nailed it!! This book was nonstop action with startline twists and just a terrifying storyline! LOVED IT!!

This is the second book from Allan that I have read. Both captured your attention from the opening chapter and drew you right into the storyline. Another book so hard to put down until I was finished reading it.

What I like best about thrillers is that they always keep me on my toes, which this story did just that. The plot has many thrilling moments that held my attention. I had to know what was going to happen next even when I was scared to find out. I appreciated the insight from the minds of the key players. With this I was able to see the story from different views which helped me see where the characters were coming from including the bad ones. It's a story that once you start it's hard to put down.

I got this book because of the good reviews but was not at all impressed. It's slow, with pages and pages of character thoughts in-between the action. There is also lots of repeating. If it weren't for the repeating this book would be about half the length. There is no need to repeat in the new chapter everything that happened in the previous chapter. The story was predictable, something we've all seen a hundred times in action movies. The characters were cliche and uninteresting. You've got the divorced dad living in a dump, the ex-wife married to a rich guy, the All-American teenage daughter, and the stereotypical dirty, poor, arrogant, bad guy. There was a hint of romance, which felt forced as well as more than a few cases of forced and/or awkward dialog. The bad guy's thoughts seemed forced as well. Like the writer had no clue what a real serial killer would be thinking and wrote his character after watching too much Law and Order. The bad guy was unbelievable and cliche. I couldn't get into the story because I just didn't believe he was a real guy. The scene at the end was SO cliche it wasn't even funny and felt out of place seeing as how he had a daughter and not a son. At one point when the FBI guy was talking, I felt like I was reading a school paper with facts just plopped on the page. Although I knew what the end would be while reading the first chapter, the writer managed to keep my attention until the end, though at times I was begging for it to be over so I wouldn't have to read the endless character thoughts. I kind of liked how he changed the perspective from which the story was being told. You'd read what the dad was thinking and then the killer. Overall, it was ok. I'm glad I got it while it was free.

The author has come up with an unusual and provocative plot, quite exciting. He has also contrived some interesting characters. The bad guy is really, really bad., and the hero is a good and unassuming guy who reacted properly when nobody else would. It is difficult to wait for developments as the plot progress very slowly .

That said, I sadly have to admit that this is one of the most aggravating and boring book I have ever read. One has to plow through dozens of pages of the characters' thoughts before the plot advances an iota.

He is not a bad writer, but the book is full of cliches (the people suffering adrenaline rushes are legion), and the outcome is predictable. The most aggravating thing is having each of his characters ruminate endlessly in stream of consciousness fashion about their situation in chapter after chapter.

I never had to skip through so many pages to find where the plot even advances a tiny bit. This goes on endlessly throughout the book, until near the end when he actually seems to advance the plot without having each character muse to themselves forever.

He devotes entire chapters to characters' dreams, without much,, if any, relevance to the plot.

Violating the rules of English, he does not seem to understand that each bit of dialog is supposed to be written in separate paragraphs. Instead bits of dialog are buried deep in multi-page long paragraphs. Thus, in paging through the dross, I had to be on the lookout for those little quotation marks buried in all the trivial thinking of a character, to find anything that was happening.

The facts I mentioned in the first paragraph would make the book deserve a four-star rating had he only written a tome without all those pages of useless pondering of the characters.

This is the story of an ordinary man (Bill) foiling the latest kidnapping attempt by the 'I-90 Killer'. That simple heroic act set in motion a chain of events that no one could have foreseen. Now Bill is the victim - his daughter has been kidnapped by the I-90 Killer. He will stop at nothing to get her back, even going over the FBI Agent (Angie) assigned to the case.

This was utterly amazing! It grabbed me by the scruff of the neck from the beginning and would not let go until the very end. The action was unrelenting and took my breath away in places. I identified with Bill, being a parent myself, I would have done exactly the same in his position and not thought twice about it. The story rocketed along and at about the halfway point started to take a very sinister direction, which then set the reader up for the shocking and climactic ending. There were a few twists and turns on the way to that ending - one of which was totally unexpected. In short this is a clever and suspenseful thriller and I wholeheartedly recommend it.

This review was originally written for the TBR Pile.
