Danny can't afford the private school his teenage daughter, Abby, adores, and he can't bear to tell his daughter he has failed her. By a stroke of brilliant luck, Danny meets Thomas Galvin, one of the richest men in Boston.
When Danny accepts a loan from Thomas, the authorities turn up at his door. Now he has a choice: face prison or become part of a sting operation to bring down his extremely dangerous new best friend...

"A heart-pounding, sweaty-palmed, utterly terrifying ride." (Tess Gerritsen)
"Completely original, emotionally satisfying, expertly twisted, and genuinely entertaining. The thriller to read this year." (Lisa Gardner)
It comes very high among the thrillers I have listened to, I give it 4* plus, not quite a 5* because even though a book may be extremely good you can only give 5* to something you find exceptional.
I found the locker room scene and Galvin's office scene very taut, but I think I liked the part where Danny finally decided to 'man up'.
Not that sort of book
I chose the book partly due to the fact that Jeff Harding was the narrator. Big fan of Lee Child's Jack Reacher books.
I would - but with reservations. It is too long. 250 pages would be plenty! But still quite gripping
Tom Galvin of course
Very easily - in fact I think that is part of the problem!
The relationship between the hero and his daughter strikes me as really rather creepy! All the big hugs and "I love you" seem a bit over the top - but then I'm a rather old Anglo-Saxon!
This was my first listen to Joseph Finder, what a fine. He is up there with Lee Child, Michael Robothom etc. I will definitely be listening to more from this author.
This story kept changing direction and you were never sure who was a good guy.
Jeff Harding is one off my favorite narrators he always brings the stories to life. Once again here he delivered a 5 star performance.
If it seems to good to be true....It probably is!
Great story top performance looking forward to hearing more.
Do we really know our friends? What do we base our trust on? This book explores those two questions and comes up with some surprising answers. The plot is at times exciting and the relationships thought-provoking.
