Book Description

HE DIDN'T MEAN TO OVERHEAR ... but he did.

HE ONLY HEARD A FEW WORDS ... but he heard too much.

HE RAN ... but he was followed - a mistake that would turn thirteen-year-old Aaron Quinn's, and his beautiful, courageous, single mother, Ashley's, worlds upside down.

THE CLOCK STARTS TICKING ... when Aaron is stolen from his mother by a psychotic killer and thrust headlong into a dark underworld. Will Aaron lose his mind as he's forced to participate in a deadly crime spree and witness first-hand the horror of cold-blooded murder?

THE WALLS CLOSE IN ... on Ashley when she listens to a tape recording left on her pillow by the killer, giving her two choices:

1) Call the police and risk being responsible for her only child's death ...

2) Offer herself as a sacrifice in exchange for his life ...

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE HER?

From the opening sequence to the smashing ending, THREE DAYS to DIE moves at lightning speed, introducing the world to an exciting new hero, a beautiful and plucky heroine, and a truly frightening villain.

A crime thriller ... an action movie ... a love story: THREE DAYS to DIE takes you on a perilous journey unlike any other suspense/thriller you've read before.

"John Avery opens Three Days to Die with a bang and then sprints toward the finish line ... taking thriller lovers of any age on a heart-pounding, pulse- tingling ride, and he does it with style. Five Stars!" – Jill Allen, Foreword Review

"I truly got lost between the pages of this wonderfully told story - though I did cringe and even cry sometimes and wanted to hit someone at other times, which is totally against my nature. It just goes to show how totally absorbed I was in the world John Avery created in Three Days to Die." - N. Budden - Amazon Top Reviewer

"I loved this book! I found myself wanting to read about each character more and more-I couldn't put it down. I hope there is a sequel!" "I enjoyed Three Days to Die. It was a fast paced story that left no room for dull moments. I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy thrillers and suspense!"

"I found myself a bit weepy, biting my nails, and then going YES at the end."

"An enjoyable read which had several lines that made me laugh out loud!"

"This is a bad guy that isn't a demon, vampire, or some other obvious monster of the night. This is a real flesh and blood person that has his fingers dipped into some seriously bad things, which only leads you deeper into this book and makes it even more realistic!"

"If you like thrillers and suspense, then grab this book for sure!"

From the Author

THREE DAYS to DIE is not your typical suspense thriller, and Aaron Quinn is not your typical thriller hero.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced thriller! December 15, 2011
By McDroll
Format:Kindle Edition
I wouldn't particularly choose to read a novel where the central character is a thirteen year old boy but I am so pleased that I read Three Days to Die. The main character Aaron and his friend, although they are young, come across as real characters - not stereotypical teenagers. They have problems, hopes and fears in their everyday world that compare to any adult.

I flew through this book at quite a lick and that's always a good sign for me, I just kept reading far into the night because the adventure never stops. I particularly liked the part where the boys were locked up in the factory - very descriptive writing. John Avery seems to be able to get under his characters' skins and he hits the emotional button time and time again. The book focuses on themes of loneliness, loss and abandonment at a variety of levels in all of the characters in the book.

So if you enjoy a fast paced thriller with an emotional heart, Three Days to Die is the one for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely wowed! March 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
John Avery took me into a world I didn't expect. I couldn't imagine living through, much less having to endure, many of the circumstances the characters in this book faced. Even the title of the book is perfect because, essentially, every character mentioned had the possibility of dying in three days, depending upon how the events would unfold, of course.

Three Days to Die, at the heart, shows just how people may react under desperate sets of circumstances. It shows how the "decent" people of society can fall from grace, whether from an action they've committed or because of uncontrollable circumstances - which causes the tide to turn against them. It points out how a child with a home can be falling through the cracks of society because of dysfunctional families which they don't want to return home to. However, Three Days to Die also reveals how courageous the human soul can be when confronted head on between right and wrong - between life and death.

I truly got lost between the pages of this wonderfully told story - though I did cringe and even cry sometimes and wanted to hit someone at other times, which is totally against my nature. It just goes to show how totally absorbed I was in the world John Avery created in Three Days to Die.

2.0 out of 5 stars Read this book in a day August 20, 2012
By Kathome
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book in a day, which isn't surprising because it's an easy read and I skipped portions of the book, such as a dream sequence. (??) Other reviews here give a more in depth review of the plot of the book, so I won't reiterate, but I will say that had it not been for the references to prostitution and some violence, I would have thought this book was written for young adolescents.

This is certainly, in my opinion, NOT a "thriller" for adults.

1.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs Down On This One April 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story was suspenseful enough, the characters okay but.....I don't like that two eighth grade young boys are partly responsible and totally responsible for a number of deaths and the adult male they befriend and they themselves clean up and cover up their roles, ignoring the police and the rule of law. They laugh as they ride out in the sunset. The dead guys are bad guys to be sure, but 8th grade killers having a good laugh after the murders?...come on. NOT recommended for children and young adults.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring and poorly structured March 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book started out with a plethora of metaphors - mostly poorly constructed - as if the author was forcing their use. Then, they disappeared. Once I start a book I finish it, even if I don't like it. This one I quit reading about 1/2 way through because I just couldn't justify wasting my time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why Such High Ratings July 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once again I am surprised at the high ratings that readers have given this novel. As it was advertised as a thriller and seeing the number of 5 star ratings, I was looking forward to an exciting read. Frankly I had to skim through parts of this book as the writing was so immature. The only reason I gave it 2 stars was because I considered some young adults might enjoy it as a good read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Weird December 2, 2012
By Mg1
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Too weird. The plot and dialogue grow ever stranger and more improbable. Apart from the bad language, violence and references to prostitutes (?) this seemed very juvenile.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not very well written! November 14, 2012
By Mika
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I saw that this book had a lot of 5 star ratings and decided to purchase it. It started off pretty interesting but ended up going downhill after the first 15 pages. The book made no sense at all! The plot was terrible. I was so lost. I was forced to keep reading because I really wanted it to pick up and end nicely, but the end was SO predictable. I was very disapointed!
