Once again, Hurwitz takes a sympathetic, ordinary guy, gives him some inner angst and throws him into an impossible, life-threatening, morality-questioning situation and lets the guy's adrenaline and inner hero take over. After that, all you can do is fasten your seat belt, hang on tight, let the G-force slam you back in your reading chair and let the music of Hurwitz's words carry you on one hell of a ride.
Absolutely the best thriller I've read this year (despite Gillian Flynn's brilliance, JT Ellison's heart, Allison Brennan's gumption, Bill Cameron's quirkiness--I could go on with the number of really good books I've read). Hurwitz is among a very small cadre of authors at the top of their game--amazing storytellers with an incredible ear for language and facility with words. Six out of five stars, and I'm only a quarter of the way through.
Mr. Hurwitz never fails to keep me turning page after page, all the while cringing in horror or weeping into a tissue. Thus was excellent.
The only problem is that he has disrupted the plans of a psychotic Ukrainian gangster who has a spiderweb reaching into the social structure. He wants Nate to bring him what he was trying to steal. Otherwise he will torture and kill Nate's family. Nate himself has nothing to lose - after all, he intended to kill himself at the outset. But he is protective of his family. This becomes a deadly game between Nate and the gangster, and bodies pile up as people are killed. To quote an expression from another novel Catch Me: A Detective D.D. Warren Novel, "Everyone has to die sometime. Be Brave."
The novel is not a mystery as you know the bad guys from the start, but it is nonstop action as Nate contends with the threat. Everyone is not going to survive.
The author's other novels includeYou're Next, the just being released Tell No Lies, and others. He has also written short stories including, "The Thief" which appears in First Thrills: High-Octane Stories from the Hottest Thriller Authors
