Publisher's Summary

Daniel Brasher left a high-paying job as a money manager to work at a job he loves, leading counselling sessions with recently paroled ex-cons. Now he's ready to move on and start a private practice.

But before he leaves, he finds an envelope in his mailbox - one intended for someone else. Inside is an unsigned note that says: "admit what you've done or you will bleed for it. you have 'til november 15 at midnite." The deadline has already passed and the person to whom the envelope was addressed was brutally murdered.

But this first warning is only the beginning. Soon, Daniel finds more warnings in his office mail, to people that the police cannot track down, victims that cannot be saved. Daniel's efforts, however, have alerted the killer and next he gets a threat of his own.

With the clock ticking, Daniel - with no clue what he's supposed to have done or to what action he must confess - must somehow appease, or outwit, a ruthless killer.

gruesome, compelling and uplifting

This story has many facets, there was a lot going on. an excellent listen and one that I did not want to turn off. Someone received their needed lesson, lives were saved, great courage and nerve displayed and committment and inherent goodwill prevailed. emotionally challenging and rewarding simultaneously. Top listen in my opinion.

I tell no lies, Gregg Hurwitz at his very best

I agree with another reviewer, Gregg Hurwitz does get better and better and I can hardly wait for his next work. Jeff Harding did an excellent job bringing this book to life and his words painted vivid pictures in my mind of each character. The story was original and evolved into an intricate plot that was most enjoyable in its denouement. A great thriller and highly recommended.

Greg Hurwitz at his best

I am just a great fan of Greg Hurwitz, and this is another great story, brilliantly read by Jeff Harding. I think the narrator can make or break a story, even if it's a good yarn a bad narrator can turn it into rubbish, so well done Jeff Harding.
As with any Greg Hurwitz you think you know what's happening, and feel all smug half way thorough, and some twist comes to throw you.
This story got us through some really dreary road trips in what seemed like no time at all.Well crafted, believeable characters and plots.
Hope he keeps on writing....

A fast paced thriller from the great Gregg Hurwitz


I didn't immediately like the narration, but came round to it pretty quickly, was listening to this on my commute to work, and got annoyed when I arrived and had to turn it off. This is a cut above the rest in this genre and keeps you guessing until the end!

I tired to love this book....

I really wanted to love this book and on paper it all, beautifully crafter sentences, plot twists and turns and a smooth narrator. However, the beautifully crafted sentences made this book sooo slow! I went for an hour long walk and I still didn't know what the book was about. By the end I had given up caring about the characters and the plot twists.

Different topic

Great pace, interesting characters based around a therapy group session so may not appeal to all. I loved it.

A good read but not his best

Greg Hurwitz is a great writer and sets the ball rolling with an incredible dilemma to unravel. This book had all of these points but this one seemed to want to add so much 'right-on' elements to the characters and their background, that adds no value to the book and almost distracts. It was good but almost instantly forgettable. That said the story had all of the compelling elements that you expect him to deliver, the twists and the turns. Jeff Harding delivers it all with his stunning performance, (as usual).

Excellent plot. Excellent detail. And Jeff Harding

Deeply detailed from the beginning hooking me into the story. The characters and back story of each is really interesting some interwoven. Jeff Harding brings it all together as he does with all great books.

Good story but long winded

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

In general Gregg Hurwitz writes a good book, this was not one of his best. The story line was good but if it were a book I would have skipped many of the paragraphs which I found over-described the scene or action, it sounded like unnecessary padding.

Have you listened to any of Jeff Harding’s other performances? How does this one compare?

A good narrator

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Probably not immediately, I'd wait to read the reviews first.
