Summary

Jarvis Thompson, the most celebrated wide receiver in college football, vanishes along the Tennessee River in the middle of the night. 

The circumstances surrounding the receiver’s disappearance are ominous: drugs, cash, and his mentor’s brother lying in a pool of blood. 

It’s up to Jarvis’s mentor and soon-to-be agent Billy Beckett to investigate the mystery and find his beloved protege before the clock runs out. Was it a brazen kidnapping? A setup? Or did Jarvis get in too deep and run? In a frantic quest that takes Billy from the mountains of East Tennessee to the South Carolina coast to the gritty streets of New Orleans, the agent knows careers - and lives - are on the line. 

As the two men’s pasts collide, both Jarvis and Billy are suddenly embroiled in a terrifying, high-stakes game where winners live and losers die.

Best narrator and author duo

I am sad, actually heartbroken to hear of Scott Pratts death. Mr. Pratt leaped to the top of my favorite author list after reading book 1- he had me at Joe Dillard. Mr. Campbell's narration and Pratt's characters/story line go together like "peas and carrots". I will look forward to new books authored by Kelly Hodge with hopes that his characters and writing style will be similar to Scott Pratt. Thanks for the great reading Mr. Pratt you will be missed.

First Scott Pratt novel since his death

I assume Kelly Hodge completed DEEP THREAT after Scott Pratt's accidental death late in 2018. The writing is similar to Pratt's. It is an outstanding novel.

I've spent many hours reading/listening to the outstanding work of Scott Pratt. He is missed.

Tim Campbell's narration is stellar as always.

Great Story...Excellent Performance!!!!

This was a pretty decent book but nothing really screamed that I absolutely LOVED this book to me, which is why I didn't give it 5 starts! I am sad to hear that Scott Pratt passed and there's only one more book in the series, unless his co-author, Kelly Hodge would happen to continue with it! I am very interested to see where Billy Beckett heads next in book #2.

Tim Campbell did a great job narrating and filling out the Billy Beckett character! He kept me entertained and I felt he fit the book nicely!

The story was not your run-of-the mill mystery, which I appreciated! I did, however, feel like a bit of the back story was missing! I am still wondering a bit about Billy and John's past that brought them to present day in the story. Overall, entertaining! I will definitely read the next book in this series!

Excellent Story & Performance!!!

I am deeply saddened that this is Scott Pratt’s last book. I lived for his new books to be released. Also Tm Campbell is an outstanding performer, I love the way he brings life to every character.

Excellent!

My sincere condolences to Scott Pratt's family. I am deeply saddened to hear that he passed away.
Right now I can't write anything else review wise.
