Mike Wingate, abandoned by his father at four and raised in foster care, is finally living the life he always dreamed of--he's happily married with a precocious 8-year-old daughter, and his construction company is about to finish a "green" housing development that will secure a solid future for them all. But then something from his own past, a past he doesn't even remember, comes back to visit terror upon him and his family.Shady characters begin threatening Mike and, when he reports them, the police seem more interested in Mike's murky past than in protecting him. Now, with Mike, his wife Annabel and daughter Kat suddenly under attack from all sides, Mike turns to Shep, a dangerous man--and Mike's only true friend-- from his childhood days in foster care. Together they will do whatever it takes to protect Mike's family against the hidden men behind the terrifying warning, "You're Next."

This book felt like the author used the same template from the previous one, changed the names of the characters, played around with the evil big organizations behind everything, and came up with a supposedly new book. It's not a horrible read but after reading "They're Watching," this one was a letdown

This is a fast-paced thriller with a good story and interesting characters. Mike, his wife Annabel and their precocious daughter Kat have a good life. Then everything comes crashing down! People start following Mike and he doesn’t know why. His daughter’s favorite stuffed animal is stolen and then returned by shady characters who seem to know more about Mike’s past than he does himself. His wife is assaulted. The police are not helping. Mike seeks the assistance of a childhood friend who Mike befriended growing up in the foster home. Together they try and solve the mystery of Mike’s past. Well written and riveting. Reviewed By DS

Richard and Judy Book Club Recommendation: "Opening this book is like sticking your hand in a vice – once in, you’re gripped and you can’t get out. I read You’re Next in two straight sittings and finished it with a mixture of relief and regret. Relief that I was released at last; regret that there weren’t more chapters to come.

This is good old-fashioned thriller-writing at its best. Each chapter surges like a breaking wave into the next; there’s barely time to catch your breath."
