Publisher's Summary

Die Hard meets Talk Radio in this heart-pounding, relentlessly fast-paced thriller from the New York Times best-selling author of The Fourth Monkey - master of suspense, J.D. Barker. 

“I’m going to offer you a choice.” 

Controversial satellite radio talk show host, Jordan Briggs, has clawed her way to the top of the broadcast world. She doesn’t hold back, doesn’t spare feelings, and has no trouble sharing what’s on her mind. Her rigorous pursuit of success has come at a price, though. Her marriage is in ruins, she hasn’t spoken to her mother in years, and she’s distanced herself from all those close to her. If not for her young daughter, Charlotte, her personal life would be in complete shambles. 

When a subdued man calls into the show and asks to play a game, she sees it as nothing more than a way to kick-start the morning, breathe life into the beginnings of drive-time for her listeners. Against her producer’s advice, she agrees, and unwittingly opens a door to the past. 

Live on the air with an audience of millions, what starts out as a game quickly turns deadly - events long thought buried resurface and Jordan Briggs is forced to reconcile with one simple fact - all decisions have consequences.

WOW!!!! This book is Amazing!!!!

I started listening to this book this morning and could not turn it off or even pause it for a few minutes until it was done. This book is as good if not better than Barker’s Fourth Monkey.
The protagonist is Jordan Briggs is a radio talk show host. She’s popular and controversial. Opinionated and crass. Often called a bitch. Her character is so fleshed out she could be a neighbor and isn’t that how a really good book should read?
Ten years earlier when she was just starting out she played a game/prank the woman at the center of the prank moved to NY from the heartland of the US. Cute and shy and broke, she was given a dare by Jordan. The date turns into a disaster with a few dead bodies under the wheels of the girl’s car. The girl goes to prison but Jordan walks away unscathed. This is the story of one of the victim’s husband and how time does not heal all wounds.
The two narrators Brian Hutchinson and Mia Barron work wonderfully together.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

A Book for People who Don’t Like Thrillers

Not really my usual cup of tea, but really clever and hard to put down. Finished it in two days. Highly recommended

“Literary Popcorn”

This book is absolutely a thrill ride you don’t want to end, just like popcorn you can’t stop eating. JD Barker is a favorite author of mine. I devour every word he writes in record time, never disappointed.

The narrators both nailed their narratives and flowed well to further enhance the book.

Get this one. You won’t be disappointed and you won’t be able to stop listening!

Loved this book!

OMG! I loved this book! The story line was great. It kept me on the edge of my seat, so to speak. From the beginning, I just kept thinking, when's the movie? It is that good.

Great story, performance was ...

Frustrating. But overall a good book. Why do they have a female performer, a very good female performer, do a males roll the entire time? I just had a hard time with it. I'd still recommend a book it's a great story and other than that aspect was well done.

I hate to say I hated it

JD Barker is the author of one my favorite series of all time so when I heard he was coming up with a new book I pounced on it. I even ordered a signed copy. This book was horrible and if I didn’t pay for my hard copy and my audible copy I wouldn’t have even finished it. All very unlikable characters. Even Cole the “good guy” was not very likable. Couldn’t get invested in anyone. Maybe not enough character building but even then I don’t know if that would have mattered. Even the 11 year old was unlikable. I’m just sad because I was expecting something great and was disappointed.

Another winner

At times though provoking, and always entertaining. The story is narrated by 2 people which has been the case with all the previous books I have listened to from this author. This gives the narrative a better feel to the characters. The story flows smoothly from the start and keeps the listener guessing throughout. All the characters are quickly well developed, especially Charlotte who is fantastic and witty, bringing a sarcastic sense of humour to complement the darkness of characters that lead the plot.
