All Patrick Davis ever wanted to do was make movies, but after he gets his big break and sells his first screenplay, his life collapses. His Hollywood dreams crumble almost immediately, sending him back to his dreary day job, and he also finds his storybook marriage on the rocks.

Then ominous DVDs start being delivered to him—DVDs that show that someone is watching him and his wife, that the two of them are being stalked and recorded by cameras hidden around and within their house. Next the e-mails start, and someone offers to fix everything, to take the mess his life has become and make it all right. Patrick figures it’s the offer of a lifetime.

But Patrick couldn’t be more wrong. With every step, he moves deeper and deeper into a web of intrigue that threatens everything he still has and values in this world. Before he knows it, he’s in, and in deep—and the only way out is to outwit and outplay his unseen opponents at their own game.

    " A great page turner - I will be reading more from Gregg Hurwitz. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita Kronowitz | 2/13/2014

    " You won't be able to put this book down...quick read and exciting! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 2/11/2014

    " Free Kindle book that ended up being a real page turner. Nothing deep about it, but great escape read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick | 2/8/2014

    " Like other reviews, I had a real hard time trying to figure out just why Patrick would feel so compelled to follow the original demand of an unseen menace. So what; they've got a couple of videos of you doing what...nothing illegal...big freaking deal! So after the first one, I can see where he might have latched onto some sort of a God complex or something...but the first...no way! Not buying it. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the story after suspending my belief, and if you have a mind prone to bouts of paranoia, it'll get you thinking maybe it's not so far fetched. After all, you're not paranoid if the really ARE watching! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leah | 2/4/2014

    " The dialogue in this book bored mr to death and I couldn't even make it halfway through. Two thumbs down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carl Harsch | 1/23/2014

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 PJ Taylor | 1/14/2014

    " Second book in a row I didn't finish. Reading shouldn't be work, and drumming up enthusiasm for this ridiculous mess of a story definitely was and I quit! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila Beaumont | 1/14/2014

    " A terrific suspense novel, which has all the requisites of a riveting thriller: plenty of suspense, high stakes, intrigue, interesting characters, good writing, and a complex story with a satisfying conclusion. I've read three of Gregg Hurwitz's books so far, and definitely want to read more! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caren | 12/15/2013

    " Emotionally charged read! Every night I would tell my husband he needed to get this book for his kindle so we could discuss every twist and turn. I kept trying to figure out how the character was going to get out of the fix he was in. Fantastic! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 12/12/2013

    " Great absorbing thriller. With a film connection as well! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maryellen Woodside | 12/11/2013

    " This book will keep you turning the pages, even though the plot is somewhat convoluted and unbelievable. A fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jayne Thorold | 12/8/2013

    " Not as good as some of his others as the characters weren't as believable "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Hanscom | 10/16/2013

    " Not much real substance, but a very exciting story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 7/24/2013

    " Thriller. About a couple being taped and the mystery of trying to figure out why and how. It was a quick fun read. The story went on a little too long so I lost interest at the end. But, the entire plot is kind of creepy to think about. Not scarey though.........because I don't like scarey. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kat | 7/3/2013

    " Five stars is considering genre. But man, he's really a rarity. Someone who writes "traditional" thrillers (ie not "literary" ones) but who is also a REALLY good writer. Plot-wise, I don't love him more than a lot of other authors I've read, but his writing is awesome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara B. | 6/15/2013

    " I have found a new author! Yea!! This is the 2nd book I read by him and loved it. Lots of intrigue, psychological drama, etc. Can't wait to find more by him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 3/30/2013

    " Fantastic! What do you do if you have lost almost everything? How will you cope? What if someone offers you a cryptic message? Do you listen? Forget about it? What if the game changes and you become a pawn? This is a fast-moving, riveting, cat and mouse thriller. Great read!! "

    " Suspenseful; kept me reading. "

    " I was not crazy about this book. I think the problem was that I was told it was terrific but I felt let down by the book. The story was too unbelievable and I didn't connect with the characters. "

    " A very enjoyable thriller with many twists and turns. Hard to decide between 3 or 4 stars (3 and a half would be ideal) but it was interesting enough to keep me reading and reading so I'll give it 4. Will look out for some more Hurwitz books in the future. "
