Fabulous. I was losing interest in this author, but this one brought me back.

It was an interesting book. However, the recounting of football games was quite tiresome. It had little to do with story-line except for Coach and one of the players.

A decent read with good character development, but a poor conclusion. There could have been a lot more depth to the book and the story.

Wow! What a great novel. Without a doubt one of the best thrillers this reader has encountered this year.

I'm becoming a great fan of Koryta. This was well-executed and kept me reading into the night. I will explore some of his earlier works now.

Secrets....everybody has them. Some are painful, some are self-serving & some are deadly. This is the story of 2 brothers long separated by a tragedy in their youth who have chosen different paths but are never actually that far apart. Someone is playing a horrible game to test their relationship, loyalty & faith. This is a thriller but as much psychological as physical. At times it's like watching a car crash through your fingers but you can't stop reading til you discover the identity of the madman & who will walk away.
