WOW! What a book, read 85 pages in just a short amount of time. Derek's best friend and neighbor is going on vacation, Derek hides in the basement so he can have the house all to himself and bring his girl over so they can be alone. While hiding in the basement after they finally leave, He hears a car and footsteps, since mom was not feeling well, they decide to come home and sees his friend Adam and his mom coming into the house, he panics and hides again in the closet this time. Petrified he hears them upstairs and just listens. He hears someone coming down the steps to the basement. He knows it is Adam. He wants to yell out to his friend but doesn't ... shortly afterwards, he hears another car door slam and more footsteps ... a knock on the door reveals a stranger ... then he hears 3 gunshots. Whole family wiped out in an instant ... and so it continues. I can't put this book down, can't wait to see what happens next. Very exciting but ALOT of cussing. If you don't mind the F bomb about a million times you will love this book!!!First book of his I have ever read .... I hope they are all as exciting as this one!!

Linda can't put this book down, now on page 340 awesome read ... one of those edge of your seat reads ... I have got to find more books by this author to read!! Hope they are all as good as this one!!

Gail The book sounds interesting but does it describe in detail any gory stuff? I can't handle reading that...

Linda NO not at all ... very suspenseful and not half as bad as some of the James Patterson I have read. I think you will like it. I have about another 150 pages to go. I will finish it today and start a new box of books for you. The first box will go out next weekend ... sorry for the delay. Just haven't gotten to the post office yet.

Gail Sounds good...don't worry about the books get to it when you can...I am working on a box for you too...Hope to get it to the post office sometime this week... Glad you enjoyed the book so much...

Abdur Rahman definite page turner finished in 1 day, wow
