Summary

San Francisco crime reporter Tom Reed is burned out. On the day he decides to finally quit the news business, a sensational story breaks. A heart-stopping robbery-homicide at a jewelry store. The suspects have shot and killed a police officer before fleeing with a female hostage.

Reed rushes to the scene, his passion resurrected for one last big story. Arriving at the chaos, Reed is stunned to learn from a staff member, still clutching a receipt, that the hostage is his wife, Ann Reed. Horrified, Reed confronts San Francisco Homicide Inspector Walt Sydowski and other detectives on the case. All know the odds. Reed is paralyzed with anguish, but his son, Zach, refuses to give up hope of finding his mother, despite the grisly trail left by the killers. Now the clock is ticking down as Reed battles his demons and Sydowski in a life and death search for Ann.

well written but too many God references

generally well written with above average characterisation and dialogue. however, the story was constantly interrupted by a variety of references to God and praying - so much that it felt like brainwashing and this almost stopped me finishing the book. The actor's voice was usually ok but the constant angst in his rendition was wearing. anyone this screwed up would be in a mental home with a breakdown! sorry if you disagree but for a reporter dispassionately reporting crime stories this lead character fell apart emotionally incredibly quickly.

Rick Mofina writes wonderful suspense thrillers!!

No Way Back is the 4th novel in the reporter Tom Reed and and cop Walt Sydowski aeries by Rick Mofina. First released in 2003 No Way Back is also Mofina's 4th novel. Few authors are as successful at building suspense to the point it becomes nerve-racking as Mofina; Mofina achieves sustained nail-biting suspense in all of his six novels I have read thus far. The publisher's summary sets up No Way Back perfectly. Narrator Christian Rummel makes this great novel even better. Despite his normal baritone-like voice he is able to give each character his or her own voice. His ability to credibly do female and children's voices is remarkable.

Those who have not yet discovered the wonderful suspense novels of Rick Mofina are in for a treat. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Great story and great narration. Your heart pounds as the details are listed, and a couple you have come to love in this series, she has been taken. The story leaves nothing out, you are there, with hope as the days pass, and wanting any clue. Great series

Had me from the beginning!

What a great book! It developed the characters well, showed their strengths and weaknesses, kept the intrigue going from beginning to end, and built the suspense throughout. I couldn’t stop listening! Plus, I never tired of the narrator, he did a great job!
