Synopsis

Mike Wingate, abandoned by his father at four and raised in foster care, is finally living the life he always dreamed of—he's happily married with a precocious 8-year-old daughter, and his construction company is about to finish a "green" housing development that will secure a solid future for them all. But then something from his own past, a past he doesn't even remember, comes back to visit terror upon him and his family.



Shady characters begin threatening Mike and, when he reports them, the police seem more interested in Mike's murky past than in protecting him. Now, with Mike, his wife Annabel and daughter Kat suddenly under attack from all sides, Mike turns to Shep, a dangerous man—and Mike's only true friend— from his childhood days in foster care. Together they will do whatever it takes to protect Mike's family against the hidden men behind the terrifying warning, "You're Next."

Book Reporter

The book is pitch-perfect from beginning to end, a wild summer night’s ride that starts with a tragic event and concludes with a pair of climaxes --- one cataclysmic and the other heart-rending --- with a bunch of heart-stopping scenarios along the way.

Shots

Hurwitz writes well about the emotional cost of not knowing your true origins, the power of friendships forged during childhood and the lengths people will go to in order to protect what they feel is theirs by right.
