A reporter for the Bergen News, Chris Turley could never measure up to his father. Edward Turley, a combination of Bob Woodward and Ernie Pyle, was one of the last great investigative reporters and a difficult man to impress. While stuck covering press conferences and town hall meetings, Chris, his father’s legend in mind, has always dreamed of his own Pulitzer, however unlikely it seems. Then one day while he’s waiting to meet a source, a giant explosion takes out half of an office building next door. Shocked into action, Chris saves five people from the burning building. His firsthand account in the next day’s paper makes him a hero and a celebrity. And that’s not all. The source’s next tip delivers a second headline-grabber of a story for Chris, and suddenly his career is looking a lot more like his dad’s. But then it seems this anonymous source has had a plan for Chris all along, and his luck for being in the right place at the right time is not a coincidence at all. What seemed like a reporter’s dream quickly becomes an inescapable nightmare. Down to the Wire, David Rosenfelt’s shocking new thriller about an ordinary man who gets exactly what he’s always wanted at a price he can never pay, is an intense thrill ride that will have readers racing through the pages right up to the end.

    " Great storyline and well thought through! Packed with action and hard to put down, had me hooked until the end and surprised me with one twist after the other! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara B. | 1/31/2014

    " Normally I prefer his Andy Carpenter series, but this one was worth straying from that character for a change! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassandra | 1/31/2014

    " No dogs this time, but it's still a good read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave Wilson | 1/22/2014

    " This has a good story line with excellent plot twists. I gave it four instead of five stars because for a book by David Rosenfelt is a little dry and humorless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia Douglas | 1/22/2014

    " A new author for me. I liked this book a lot. Seemed smiliar to Lee Child and James Patterson. Good plot; kept the reader going. I will look into his other books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie | 1/19/2014

    " A VERY intense thriller about a serious serial murderer who targets a newspaper reporter as his source for tips. What seems like a newspaper reporter's dream becomes a nightmare that only he can end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 1/14/2014

    " This turned into a surprising thriller. Chris Turley, the son of a famous journalist is also trying to better his reputation as a journalist. He gets a tip that a murder will take place and that he is involved because of his late father. This make no sense until he begins to look into his father's background and those he wrote about and brought down in the process. Chris becames a celebrity because of being associated with the terrible tragdies that ensue. But this back fires and life becomes very tough. A good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie McHenry | 1/11/2014

    " Suspenseful and full of questions about who is actually doing what to whom throughout the whole book! Fast paced because you want to know the end result! Good read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 1/11/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. Just enough twists and turns to keep you sharp. Great job bringing it all to a conclusion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fred | 1/8/2014

    " Not bad. Rosenfelt does a good job of telling an intricate story. But my favorites are the Andy Carpenter series because of the involvement of the dog and Carpenter's background story line. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen Woo | 12/19/2013

    " Meh. A laughably dim journalist for a protagonist flounders through a poorly-written plot, in which the bad guy is really bad. The end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie (Kwiltreader) | 12/12/2013

    " Chris Turley is not as much fun and personable as Andy Carpenter but he is a likeable character who gets caught up in a complicated plot. The beginning and middle were suspenseful and enticing. I was really into the story. But the ending was predictable. It was an OK book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie Angel | 12/8/2013

    " 3.5--some nice twists and turns. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marc | 11/17/2013

    " Not anywhere near as good as his Andy Carpenter books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary Martin | 9/25/2013

    " This was disappointing. I expected better writing from Mr. Rosenfelt. It didn't live up to his earlier books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thom | 8/4/2013

    " Book-on-CD. A thriller, with a not completely unforseen bad guy. Adding to the mystery, the second to last and last tracks are bad... right at the point the bomb is about to blow up. Did it? Will have to read the last few pages at a library. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 9/4/2012

    " It was free and a quick listen. Good for long plane rides or stuck in traffic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 6/26/2012

    " Fast-moving, decent plot. Came together well. A pretty good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 3/23/2012

    " A stand alone book from Rosenfelt that I totally enjoyed..good story..quick pace..I did figure out the bad guy, see if you can. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Herzog | 3/16/2012

    " Everything about this book was a bit superficial. The plot, as it turned out, was implausible and the romantic relationship didn't ring true. There was suspense due to the deadline, hence the title, but overall a pretty weak effort. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 11/2/2011

    " Even with all the brutality, this well written novel is bound to keep your interest. 8 of 10 stars "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clara | 7/23/2011

    " This was a good book, but I miss Andy Carpenter and his golden retrievers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie (Kwiltreader) | 6/3/2011

    " Chris Turley is not as much fun and personable as Andy Carpenter but he is a likeable character who gets caught up in a complicated plot. The beginning and middle were suspenseful and enticing. I was really into the story. But the ending was predictable. It was an OK book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gordon | 4/18/2011

    " It has many elements (and characters) from prior Rosenfelt books, but gains intensity especially near the end. A Serial killer singles out a journalist to communicate to and write stories in the media. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 3/17/2011

    " Started out great but then introduced the bad guys in the story a little too quick taking away some of the suspense. In the end you still didn't get the full story. Suspenseful though and a quick read. I would recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 2/26/2011

    " Fast-moving, decent plot. Came together well. A pretty good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 12/30/2010

    " Surprisingly passionless writing for a thriller; I never really cared about any of the characters, and I never did understand what motivated the killer. "
