-Book Reporter


"A roiling plot, insightful characters, clear, intelligent writing. What more could you ask for in a novel?" --Steve Berry

Charlie Giles is at the top of his game. An electronics superstar, he's sold his startup to a giant Boston firm, where he's now senior director. He's treated like a VIP everywhere he goes. . .. Until everything in Charlie's neatly ordered world starts to go terrifyingly wrong.

"Hits all the right notes. Terrific stuff." --John T. Lescroart

Charlie's prestigious job and his inventions are wrenched away from him. His family is targeted, and his former employers are dying gruesomely, picked off one by one. Every shred of evidence points to Charlie as a cold-blooded killer. And soon he is unable to tell whether he's succumbed to the pressures of work and become the architect of his own destruction. . .or whether he's the victim of a relentless, diabolical attack. Now he must save his own life--all the while realizing that nothing can be trusted, least of all his own fractured mind. . .

"A high-speed thrill ride, filled with shocks and mind-bending twists." --Tess Gerritsen

"Not just a great thriller debut, but a great thriller, period." --Lee Child

Initially I believed my disappointment was the result of underdeveloped characters. But as I continued to read the repetitive thoughts of main man Charlie...I realized it was a combination of all these things that left me feeling a little let down.
