Hurwitz's hair-raising stand-alone stars an unlikely hero, 36-year-old Nate Overbay. Diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease nine months earlier, Nate is about to leap off an 11th-floor ledge of a bank building in Santa Monica, Calif., when he notices a robbery in progress through the window next to where he's standing. Nate climbs back in the window undetected, grabs a handgun a masked man has conveniently set down, and, thanks to his ROTC firearms training, succeeds in shooting dead five of the six robbers. In revenge, the thwarted theft's mastermind, a notorious Ukrainian mobster, vows to brutally kill Nate and his teenage daughter unless Nate can retrieve the robbery's objective: an envelope stored in one of the bank's safe deposit boxes. In between tight, compelling action scenes, Hurwitz (You're Next) sensitively depicts Nate's struggles with ALS. While Nate's exploits may be a little beyond his skill set at times, thriller fans won't let this one gather any dust on the nightstand. Author tour. Agent: Aaron Priest. (Aug.)

Nate Overbay's back is literally up against a wall. He is standing on a narrow ledge, 11 stories above the ground, about to do the unthinkable. That's when he hears it: the unmistakable sound of gunshots. During his darkest hour Nate has unwittingly become witness to a bank robbery in progress. Intent only on relieving his own problems, Nate now has an opportunity to change his path and those of many others. Heart-stopping action ensues as Nate takes on a group of ruthless killers intent on destroying everything he holds dear, including his only child. Verdict Hurwitz's (You're Next) latest thriller does not disappoint. Fast-paced and action-packed, it will appeal to Hurwitz's huge fan base as well as newcomers to his work and readers who enjoy adrenaline-charged suspense.
