For Paul Callaway and his wife, Sara, moving from the East Coast to a quiet midwestern town was a major adjustment. But right from the start, Paul has tried to fit in. He’s played golf with the guys. He’s even joined the Neighborhood Patrol, grabbing a flashlight and a walkie-talkie to make these neatly tended streets even safer. Then Paul makes one mistake—and now they want him gone. But nothing could have prepared Paul and Sara for the quarrel that has erupted between Paul and a neighbor—the self-appointed leader of the Neighborhood Patrol. Or for the next outrage, as police arrest Paul for a sordid crime he didn’t commit.

Suddenly Paul’s life, university career, and marriage are at risk, as he finds himself locked in a desperate fight with an angry man, a dark conspiracy, and a secret that began with a child’s disappearance ten years before.

    " This is the first book I've read by this author and I enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dennis Ammon | 2/1/2014

    " Surprising since a new author for me. Compelling and a quick read. Interesting storyline. Took everyday neighborhood normalcy and turned it into a web of intrigue that illustrates our vulnerability. You will question what is normal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judi | 1/28/2014

    " For some reason this captured my attention and all I wanted to do was read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 1/23/2014

    " This was one of those rare instances when I did not love the book but did finish it. The story was compelling but it just lacked what it needed to be great. "

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

    " This was my first book by Sean Doolittle but after reading this book, I intend to check out his other books. I was drawn into this thriller from the very first page. I loved the character of Paul Callaway. He was so real to me I almost wish he were part of a series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Su | 1/14/2014

    " a read that keeps you on the edge of your seat. The story is of a neighborhood protection group that provides less than what they advertise. It was suspenseful and riveting, but at the same time just a bit overdone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ben | 11/7/2013

    " Kind of all over the place, but ties it together nicely. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 10/22/2013

    " This should be 3.75. Very serviceable thriller in the Harlan Coben mode. Suspenseful and sometimes funny - a great combo. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 10/9/2013

    " This would be a good novel to bring on vacation. Da Vinci Code-esque with all of the chapter-ending cliffhangers, and the plot is not as tight as it could be. However, it was a quick, entertaining read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John Seyfarth | 9/20/2013

    " Paul Callaway and his wife Sara have moved to a town in Iowa where Sara has taken a job at a regional university. Police show up and arrest Paul for sexual exploitation of a minor. Paul is not guilty, but it takes 334 pages to explain why he is suspected of the crime. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 8/8/2013

    " Such a good mystery/thriller! I couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Billy Moore | 5/30/2013

    " Good book. Fun read. would and have recommended. Ends really quickly "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Afsleight | 10/6/2012

    " Read a review in the Post and decided to give it a try. Perfect quick summer read. Read it over 3 nights and kept me entertained. It's along the lines of a Baldacci or Patterson novel, it's mystery but not a legal thriller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie Angel | 5/9/2012

    " More like 3.5-3.75. A page-turner with a really good baddie. Engaging; recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 4/23/2012

    " Easy read. Would recommend. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rick McNeely | 11/3/2011

    " Amusing yarn of a suburban life gone very bad. Using the anti-hero formula, this mystery is not without its charm. OK, not completely stupid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 10/8/2011

    " Great book - lots of twists in the plot that make it a page turner. I've never read Sean Doolittle before, but am really enjoying this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 9/4/2011

    " First book of his I've read. Want to try another I dislike anything with child porn, but a good writer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher Ryan | 5/30/2011

    " Taught, tense, and satisfying. Well worth your time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JT | 5/9/2011

    " Book starts out very well as a man falsely accused narrative and an indictment of proactive neighboring in the web cam age, but the second half goes over the top and the suspense really peters out in the final third. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean | 1/3/2010

    " Loved this and will look for more by this author. "
