This solo debut novel is very compelling. Gross has previously co-authored books with James Patterson. It is a page-turner, even though the plot at times seems far-fetched. A web of deception and betrayal leaves many lives on the line. I do recommend this book and look forward to reading the authors next novel, The Dark Tide.

Listening to this CD was very addicting. This book had several twists and turns which made it all the more intriguing. It's amazing how families get pulled into "situations". Wow- the witness protection aspect gets you thinking..

Great thriller - story drew me in and kept me guessing.

The blue zone - the state most feared, when there is suspicion that a subject's new identity has been penetrated or blown. When he or she is unaccounted for, is out of contact with the case agent, or has fled the safety of the program When there is no official knowledge of whether that person is dead or alive.

Written by the co-author of Lifeguard and Judge & Jury, a New York Times Bestseller. This is a tense and chilling thriller of what goes wrong when a witness protection plan cover gets blown. A really good and coherent read.

If part one doesn't grab and hold you hostage, you might just be brain dead. What an exciting beginning! Benjamin Raab (Kate's father) is arresting on RICO charges and like a house of cards, his whole life crumbles taking his wife and three children with it. Kate refuses to enter the Witness Protection Program and loses contact with the rest of her family until the proverbial shit hits the fan and her father disappears.

The plot is complex and deftly crafted to keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time. The twists and turns come at a furious pace and the surprises don't stop until the very end. I really liked Kate but felt there was something wrong with Ben from the start. He was just too good to be true and I knew something was going to happen though I wasn't prepared for what actually did happen which was a total surprise. I never felt anything for her husband Greg either. He just didn't have much input into the story...until the end.

This is the first book I've read by Andrew Gross but it most definitely will not be the last. I've read some of the books he collaborated with James Patterson on but it's just not the same as a full-fledged novel which shows his talent and not Patterson's.

This book was lost at a motel & brought to me. Almost did't read it. A very good story & read it in one night. Liked the way Gross writes.
