When single father Danny Goodman suddenly finds himself unable to afford the private school his teenage daughter adores, he has no one to turn to for financial support. In what seems like a stroke of brilliant luck, Danny meets Thomas Galvin, the father of his daughter's new best friend, who also happens to be one of the wealthiest men in Boston. Galvin is aware of Danny's situation and out of the blue offers a $50,000 loan to help Danny cover his daughter's tuition. Uncomfortable but desperate, Danny takes the money, promising to pay Galvin back. What transpires is something Danny never imagined. The moment the money is wired into his account, the DEA comes knocking on his door. Danny's impossible choice: an indictment for accepting drug money that he can't afford to fight in court, or an unthinkably treacherous undercover assignment helping the government get close to his new family friend. As Danny begins to lie to everyone in his life, including those he loves most in the world, he must decide once and for all who the real enemy is or risk losing everything -- and everyone -- that matters to him.

I really enjoyed it for many of the reasons previous comments covered. It has a lot of twists and turns that caught me off guard. Well written, nice, short chapters that made for good stopping points when I had to put it down. I'm looking forward to reading some of his other books.

In the first half of the book, Danny Goodman is in over his head, failing on all levels. He's a writer (authors love to make their protagonists writers. This one is a historical biography writer). In the 2nd half of the book, he's an all-world beater, taking down Mexican cartel members. Very poor character development: did not like Danny, his daughter or his girlfriend at all: no depth to any of them. Story is like a screenplay for an action movie that opens to relatively decent audiences the first weekend, and then closes within 2 weeks or less.

A fast easy read, exciting from
start to a great ending,
interesting characters add to
the suspense.

If you enjoy a good mystery
here it is. READ this one.

I am really enjoying this book. It is an easy read but very gripping. So tired of books that I plod through.

I just finished this book, its a good read. I looked at his previous book "Paranoid" and see its pretty much the same story. I won't bother reading that one.
