Noorel filmimehel Evan Casheril läheb elus hästi, kuni ta saab hädakõne emalt, kes kutsub teda koju. Noormees leiab saabudes julmalt mõrvatud ema surnukeha köögipõrandalt ning palgamõrvari varitsemas teda ennast.
Sel hetkel taipab Evan, et kogu ta elu on olnud vale. Tema vanemad pole need, kelleks ta neid pidas; ta sõbratar pole see, kelleks Evan teda pidas; kogu noormehe

This might have been better if I'd read it & could skim more, but the writing wasn't great. The story line was pretty good, though. Not exactly a new plot, but it was different enough to keep it interesting.

Unfortunately, the author was another who succumbed to putting a silencer on a revolver or else turned an automatic into a revolver - I forget which, but it doesn't really matter. I won't go out of my way to read another by this author.

The reader wasn't bad. Not great, but I'm VERY picky

I Read this book last year when i went to college, and i couldnt put it down!
I was reading on the bus, at my Breaks, even sneeking looks during boring classes!
Its a real page turned and is ace for people who love reading crime storys.
The beast thing about this book is that you tend to find crime books about a cop, but this one is about a boy who finds out his life has been a lie! and he slowly it revals that his parents arnt who thay say they are, and are infact up to there necks in trouble. Eve

It was an Ok book. It was (and I hope I won't be misinterpreted when I say this) so American.
Like: the nobody with a boring life turns out to the hero of the whole story killing the bad guys (even though he has no actual shooting or fighting training) and discovering the truth about his past thus improving his relationship with his estranged father and mysterious girlfriend.
"The unknown white hero that safes the day and gets the girl" could very well be the title.
What a cliche.
But it was entert

I bought this because I thought it would be easy reading, so I guess I wasn’t really expecting a lot from it. It pretty much met my expectations. I would describe it as an average thriller, fairly unoriginal with plot twists you could see coming from a mile off. I only finished the book because I hate leaving books half-read, otherwise I could have easily given up on it without feeling the need to know what happened to Evan or his father. Evan has no experience in this world, yet manages to freq ...more

Foi o primeiro livro que li deste autor, e gostei (ainda bem porque comprei logo 3 livros do autor).
Em "Pânico" os capítulos levam-nos logo em suspense para o capítulo seguinte. A história está sempre em crescendo porque estamos sempre a descobrir mais e mais sobre o mistério que enreda o assassínio de Donna mãe de Evan personagem central. É uma trama fácil de acompanhar e envolvente e com um pouco de romance também.

Panic by Jeff Abbott Evan Casher probably led a sheltered life. It all changed when he got a call from his mother. She needed to see him right away. When he got to her home, she had been murdered and the killers then tried to kill Evan but Evan is rescued by a stranger who says he's a friend of Evan's mother.

Steven Jargo, an information peddler, is the man who killed Evan's mother. Dezz is Steven's son and Carrie Lindstrom is the girl Jargo has pretending to be Evan's girlfriend so she can get the files he has on

Matruşka bebeği gibi sır içinden sır çıktı şaşkına döndüm. Aksiyon filmi izler gibi bir kitaptı çok beğendim.

Biraz edit hataları var ama editör baştan savma çalışmış sanki.

Proclaimed as "One of the year's best books" on the cover, I was obviously expecting something very good. However on the contrary, I was bitterly disappointed. 2005 was clearly a very bad year for publication.

If you're a fan of the fast-paced and simplistically written novels of Dan Brown, then you'll like this. The pace of the story is so fast that you've barely come to terms with what's just happened, before you're being transported to a completely different world altogether, within the space

The premise of this one sounded good - a young guy receives an urgent summons home phone call from his mother and returns to find his mother murdered and his life turns upside down. So, we have an intriguing mystery on our hands! The young guy discovers pretty fast that someone is trying to kill him too! Panic stations = lots of action!

The issue I had (and couldn't stop thinking about) is, here's this young guy ... he's film maker with no police experience, hey, he's hardly even fired a gun. But

Good action. I would call it a good pass time book. Nothing to write home about. The one big but is that the author brings up Colombia and Bogota in relation to some drug traffic deal that has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO with the plot. I wish people would quit referring to Colombia only for the bad and begin to see the beauty of the country and the REAL people. Plus the cartels don't exist anymore. All of the drug lords are in prison, they are GONE for ever. Every other book I read makes reference ...more
