Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Will, Jeffrey, and Nolan are lifelong friends. Each has gone their separate ways as adults, living their own lives while forging their own careers. They have no reason to believe anything extraordinary will befall them. Until one shocking moment changes everything.
 
 Will is a part-time drummer who spends the rest of his time in recording studios. Then one night Jeffrey attempts to rob a convenience store, drags a young woman into Wills car, and shouts a single word: “Drive!” Shaken and confused, Will obeys.
 
 Suddenly these ordinary men find themselves completely out of their element, holding a young girl hostage without the slightest idea of what to do next. They are already guilty of kidnapping and robbery; it is only a matter of time before they find out just what else theyre capable of. For these four people, three days will decide their fate—freedom and prison, innocence and guilt—and life and death.

Review:

"Narrator Ray Chase delivers a strong, subtle performance in this audio edition of Kardos's debut novel. Will Walker, a onetime drummer in a rock band, is looking forward to the annual get-together with his old college friends. But what should have been a fun weekend of drinking beer, playing golf, and reliving old times takes a dramatic turn when one of the friends attempts to rob a convenience store and ends up kidnapping the young girl cashier. Chase all but embodies first-person narrator Will, providing him with a perfect everyman quality that lends an easy, believable simplicity to his storytelling. Because of Chase's compelling narration, listeners will be pulled into this sometimes dark, often compelling, and always intriguing story. A Mysterious Press hardcover. (Sept.)"

Synopsis:
