The nerve-shredding new thriller from the best-selling author of Reckless and The Blue Zone.
Henry Steadman is a successful surgeon with a thriving cosmetic practice in South Florida. He's divorced but on good terms with his ex-wife and remains very active in his daughter's life. But you never know what's just around the corner. An out-of-town traffic stop goes violently wrong as the cop who was about to arrest Henry is shot repeatedly, and the killer escapes the scene.
Henry is shell-shocked. To all the witness’s eyes, he had the perfect motive to murder the cop. He seeks help from his only friend in the area, but what he finds there seals his fate. His friend has been butchered and Henry now knows someone is framing him for a double murder. A state-wide man-hunt is ordered. On the run, trying to avoid dead-ends, only one person believes Henry: sympathetic state-trooper Carrie, who has seen her fair share of tragedy.
As Henry frantically tries to figure out who would want to frame him, Carrie tries to keep the faith as more incriminating evidence against Henry surfaces. She has to lie to her own police force, praying that she has made the right choice. The trail of set-ups leads them to another father on a twisted path to revenge – and Henry must face up to just what it is he's been a part of….
"I think this book is fantastic – it has all the obvious virtues plus that elusive X-factor that really made me resent the times I had to put it down. It's Andrew Gross's best yet – including the titles he wrote with James Paterson – and therefore an automatic must read for lovers of fast, topical, can't-put-it-down thrillers." (Lee Child)

I listen in small chunks while walking the dog. This story kept me interested and intrigued. Would make a wonderful TV series or film!
An American voice reading an American storyline, mainly in the 1st person, adds to the realism.
The start is especially intriguing - how can your life be turned completely upside down in such a short time?
