review 1: Set in Portland, Oregon, this fast-paced thriller follows the character Sam White. Sam is an out-of-work actor now working as a security guard in a shopping mall. As he returns home after a night shift, he finds his house a smoking ruin and two body bags being removed from it. After falling into despair, and being questioned by the police, he receives a package with a cellphone in it and the cellphone rings with a call that tells him his wife and daughter are still alive. To get them back alive, he has to commit a series of violent acts that make no sense to him. As he tries to follow the instructions given him, hoping his family is safe, he meets Zack Parker, also a victim of the unknown caller, and the two begin to compare notes. They work together trying to stay one ste... morep ahead of their tormenter and figure out his identity. I read this book in one day, and also did a variety of other things, so it was definitely a quick and engaging read.
review 2: You will like this book if you like fast-paced thrillers, like those by Linwood Barclay or Harlan Coben. The story premise is original and the writing is good. It's tightly plotted and suspenseful. I really identified with the characters and felt their pain as they faced some difficult choices that no one would ever want to make. The plot is very well done, although I thought it was a a bit over the top for the criminal's motivations. That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. I would have given a 4.5 if I could. This is a compelling, hard to put down story. I highly recommend it! less

Not too bad. Very quick read, fast-paced also. Would make a good movie.
Tightly woven with some surprise elements.
