Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Luke Dantry, while working as an intern for his stepfather's think-tank in Austin, Tex., stumbles on a group of home-grown terrorists known as the Night Road (because of their nocturnal Internet chatter) in this furiously paced if less than compelling thriller from Abbott (Collision). The Night Road has held several warmup activities—plane crashes, train derailments, chemical explosions—and is now gearing up for Hellfire, the code name for a secret mission that's supposed to be the mother of all terrorist acts. As Dantry scrambles from city to city (Houston, Chicago, New York) to thwart Hellfire and bring its planners to justice, the story strikes a number of false notes—convenient plot twists, hard-to-swallow dialogue and a main character who all too easily goes from wimpy grad student to brawny crime fighter over the course of just a few days. Still, Abbott has an instinctive feel for how to draw adrenaline from words on a page. (July)

Customer Reviews

There are two 'plot twists' at the end that were predictable unfortunately.
Robbi
Abbott's terrorists don't behave with much professionalism or secrecy, and come off rather as a bunch of unorganized goons.

I began reading this yesterday, and persevered into the evening, but it didn't improve.

Format: Hardcover
I am not a regular reader of crime/thrillers in the commercial fiction genre, but have recently been reading a number of them. As with most others, if you aren't used to reading much purely commercial fiction, it is surprising how poor the writing is. Occasionally one can tell that the author sat and pondered the possibilities, and carefully chose his words, but not often. The language is just too common; street language, basically, which I suppose largely defines the difference between literary and commercial fiction. It's like reading a TV cop show. (Why didn't the editor encourage Abbott not to begin two sentences in a row with "but"?)

The first two reviewers don't seem to have paid attention to the book. Luke isn't a low-life, nor is he a "lonely braggart" by any means. He is duped by his stepfather and drawn into a real mess, which then has this psychology student fighting off terrorists like a pro in order to save himself and a woman he has become attached to, and to clear up some mysteries from his own past.

Like watching a TV show with a similar plot, one can get hooked and want to continue to find out what happens, but as another reviewer mentioned, the plot will induce a lot of "oh, right" comments from readers, with unreal and unbelievable occurrences left and right. Abbott tries to sound like a well-researched writer with book recommendations for readers interested in terrorism, but make no mistake: this is not a book that presents a real-life picture of global terrorism, nor is it filled with details that hint at a researched effort, unless you consider name-dropping a pistol ("Glock 9") or the US State Department ("State") to count. Abbott's terrorists don't behave with much professionalism or secrecy, and come off rather as a bunch of unorganized goons.

I read the book, but wish I had audio-booked it as a jogging companion instead.

I began reading this yesterday, and persevered into the evening, but it didn't improve. The plot is elementary, and the characters are not credible. So it's joined the other unfinished novels, because as I get older I'm becoming more picky.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Ed Benjamin on April 21, 2011
Format: Hardcover
This is my first Jeff Abbott novel and it will not be the last. I have already started reading the second. In this novel, a young man finds himself thrust into a war between a highly organized anti-terrorist organization and a terrorist organization. The young man, Luke Dantry,became a target after doing research for his step-father on extremists who post incendiary comments on the Internet. Then after seeing his step-father off on a flight,Luke finds himself kidnapped and embrioled in a flight to avoid two assassins who are chasing him.

The author ekes out clue after clue until you come to surprising climax at the end. A believable tale of a young man caught up into events and a battle he never knew existed.

A good read.

This book never held my interest. I realize that it's fiction, but this one was too over the top for me.

That being said, at least I know that the group was called "Night Road" not "Black Road".

That reviewer needs to spend more time actually reading the books than cutting and pasting the book description then calling it a review.

Format: Hardcover
I have about 70 more pages to go and I quit and I should have quit reading earlier. "Trust Me" gave me no thrills at all and I found it to be rather lame nd weak. Here we have the hero, Luke a 24 year old just out of college and suddenly he becomes a pivotal character wanted by all factions because of his Night Road ventures. Namely going into domestic terrorist chatroom and chatting it with all the baddies. Then Luke gets kidnapped and Lukes adventure begins. There are a plethora of characters populating the story like his step father, his mother, his dead father, his living father, some domestic terrorists out to catch or kill him. And Luke evades them all like some new James Bond.

Implausible? The domestic terrorists are going to unleash 140 bombs throughout the US and this kid is going to stop them? Give me a break.

I give it 3 stars just because he finished it. Not a very good story otherwise and one to miss.

Format: Hardcover
Well, this is an okay thriller. Young man finds his life is a lie and has to run for his life, while not knowing who the good guys and the bad guys are. In the mix we have The Night Road a collection of on-line terrorists who are scaling up to a big event, and our young hero may be the only thing that can stop them.

Well as a one off, this was okay, but the author seems to have a formula that he is sticking to and his books are starting to repeat themselves. Sadly the plots are not clever or different enough to carry this off and this just didn't stand out. All these types of books stretch the plot and co-incidence a bit, but when the same themes just get re-hashed then I have to question the value of reading any more. So three stars if you have not read anything by Mr Abbott before, two stars if you have.

I really tried, because I wanted to see if I was right about the actual villain, I was willing to overlook the fact that a academic computer geek was able to succeed as a fugitive; that part of Chicago was blacked out with evidently no response from the authorities; that the bad guys were calling their organization the name that the hero had given it; the fact that his picture is all over every available media and almost no one notices; but, when he was able to access one of the baddie's computer system after forty-two password tries, and then able to access one of the undercover web sites after multiple password tries...that did it. Even perfectly mundane password protected websites will lock the ID after three or four attempts.Supposedly, the Night Road is made up of paranoid psychotics who should only allow one try, The disbelief suspension snapped. Back to the library it goes. Glad I did not pay for it
