Will, Jeffrey, and Nolan are lifelong friends. Each has gone their separate ways as adults, living their own lives while forging their own careers. They have no reason to believe anything extraordinary will befall them. Until one shocking moment changes everything.

Will is a part-time drummer who spends the rest of his time in recording studios. Then one night Jeffrey attempts to rob a convenience store, drags a young woman into Will’s car, and shouts a single word: “Drive!” Shaken and confused, Will obeys.

Suddenly these ordinary men find themselves completely out of their element, holding a young girl hostage without the slightest idea of what to do next. They are already guilty of kidnapping and robbery; it is only a matter of time before they find out just what else they’re capable of. For these four people, three days will decide their fate—freedom and prison, innocence and guilt—and life and death.

    " I was really impressed with the debut of this author. I wasn't really expecting the twist and turns this story took. The book came highly recommended and didn't let me down. Look forward to the next book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Garza | 2/3/2014

    " The advance press for this book is worth it. A great thriller with a lot of twists and turns that keep you reading. When three old college buddies get together for a weekend of golf and drinking, the actions of one change all of their lives forever. This is definitely a modern noir, and I look forward to more books by him. "

    " Great pacing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamckean | 1/8/2014

    " An incredibly engaging, well-written suspense novel filled with twists and turn all the way to the last page. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacqueline Burke | 1/5/2014

    " Great insight to humans' flawed thinking. The ending hurt---made me lose my faith in humanity :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon Nagel | 12/18/2013

    " Very good story. Lagged at times, but well written and original. Recommended. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John | 11/28/2013

    " I was intrigued by the premise of this book and it sounded like it be a great story. It started out okay, but I couldn't feel any empathy for these characters as they behaved so unbelievably stupid and unrealistically inept. I put it down about a third of the way through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendra | 7/16/2013

    " Wow! I thought I had this one figured out, but the wild twist at the end took me completely by surprise. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen Rutherford | 3/20/2013

    " Excellent read. I didn't suspect the ending at all. Great writing. Great twists. Wonderful debut novel from this Mississippi writer! Can't wait for more and to hear him read at the Welty Symposium this year. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Wisnewski | 1/13/2013

    " I could not put this book down - fast paced and keeps you guessing until the end!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 1/11/2013

    " I thought I knew where this thriller was going and so I was less than intrigued. I'm glad I stayed with it though as Kardos completely surprised me. Great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 12/13/2012

    " Pretty good. The action started right from the beginning. The main story was punctuated by stories from the past, but it didn't detract at all. Sometimes, going back and forth from the present to the past becomes a problem when I read a book, but this is done nearly perfectly. Nice, fast read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally | 12/8/2012

    " I could not put this down! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Diane | 12/6/2012

    " Ok but kind of disappointing. Was expecting better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 8/31/2012

    " When you reach the climax and surprising conclusion, you understand Kardos's decision to have written a book that's a little slow-paced compared to others in its genre. A thought-provoking, sometimes intense read that will surprise you even after you've stopped guessing. "
