DESCRIPTION:

Mike Wingate, abandoned by his father at four and raised in foster care, is finally living the life he always dreamed of — he’s happily married with a precocious 8-year-old daughter, and his construction company is about to finish a “green” housing development that will secure a solid future for them all. But then something from his own past, a past he doesn’t even remember, comes back to visit terror upon him and his family.

Shady characters begin threatening Mike and, when he reports them, the police seem more interested in Mike’s murky past than in protecting him. Now, with Mike, his wife Annabel and daughter Kat suddenly under attack from all sides, Mike turns to Shep, a dangerous man — and Mike’s only true friend — from his childhood days in foster care. Together they will do whatever it takes to protect Mike’s family against the hidden men behind the terrifying warning, “You’re Next.”

MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

Mike has a wonderful marriage, with a beautiful 8 year old daughter.  Mike has built a "green" community for people to move into.  When the last inspection happens he finds out it's not as green as it's suppose to be.

One night while sleeping Mike swears he hears something coming from the baby monitor that he still has in his daughters room.  He rushes to her, to find her sleeping like a baby.

Mike starts to believe he is being followed every where he goes, and he thinks it is because someone found out about the housing development.  

Things really start to get sticky, and then someone come into contact with him while at a gala where Mike was being honored for the "green houses".  

Mikes life turns upside down from that very moment on.  This book went in a totally different direction than I thought it would.  It surprised me and I loved it.  

I was on the edge of  my seat listening to this book.  Lives coming unraveled, old friends being reunited, bad men circling around all the time, a family in danger.  It's fantastic.

If you like suspense, fast paced chases, criminals, and intrigue, you should pick this book up.  The narrator (Scott Brick) is one of my favorites.  He brings the book to life.  Such a great book!

Source:  I bought this book for myself on audible.  I was not compensated in any way for this review.  These are my own PERSONAL thoughts on the book.

Content:  Some language, and violence, but not too descriptive (in my opinion)
