From the 11th storey of a Los Angeles high-rise, Nate looks out on the city - the traffic, the trees, and the beach beyond. He breathes deeply. And then he moves one foot off the ledge and into thin air. But before he can jump, gunshots ring out from within the building. A robbery is in progress. And Nate, with nothing to lose but the life he was about to give up, decides to intervene. What happens next plunges Nate into mortal danger...and reunites him with the family he hasn't known for years - a family he will do anything to protect.
Packed with twists and suspense, hurtling forward at relentless speed, The Survivor is a gripping, unforgettable story of sacrifice, redemption, and heroism.

Very exciting, believable characterization and pulls no punches (The fight/torture scenes are very violent and gory)! As always, Jeff Harding's narration is awesome - at times I forgot that there was only one narrator. Wanted to listen to this in one go if I could!
I really enjoyed most of this book it was just the rather graphic explanations of truly gruesome torture that got to me. The plot was excellent and an interesting take on the way someone who knows they have little time left deals with some of the violence sent his way. A good listen if you are not squeamish. Interesting characters and fairly well read.
"I listened to it twice in two weeks"
I enjoyed it as much as the far fetched but action packed Matthew Reilly books most of which I own.
The plot was complicated and the characters believable.
The beginning in the bank
The narrator did a great job of differenciating between the characters. I was never at a loss as to who was who.
