Summary:

When burglar Luther Whitney breaks into a Virginia mansion, he witnesses a brutal crime involving the president--a man who believes he can get away with anything--and now, Luther may be the only one who can stop him in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.



In a heavily guarded mansion in the Virginia countryside, professional burglar and break-in artist Luther Whitney is trapped behind a two-way mirror. What he witnesses destroys his faith not only in justice, but in all he holds dear.



What follows is an unthinkable abuse of power and criminal conspiracy, as a breathtaking cover-up is set in motion by those appointed to work for one of the most important people in the world--the President of the United States.

    I really enjoyed this book. I had a hard time putting it down.

    This story is a nail-biting, page-turning thriller that weaves the key characters together in too many ways to imagine. Starting with an ingenious burglary of a country home belonging to an enormously wealthy business icon, the story is rapidly launched into a whirlwind tale of violence, murder, deceit and intrigue. The characters are very well drawn. I felt as though I could picture each key character in my mind and know if he/she were likely to be friend or foe as the story progressed. Stellar action scenes were artfully woven into the book. The novel has become a favorite of mine The narrator has a lazy, drawling voice that does not really fit with the tight action in this book. The voice is clear and easily understood which is important but the tone just missed the mark for me.

    Better than some of his others. It didn't get "stuck" at the end. Ended with appropriate timing and interest.

    This audiobook had me on the edge of my seat from word one! Great drama/thriller. I love the plot, the characters and the cat and mouse play. Highly recommend this audiobook for a GREAT listening experience!

    Great Book - bad choice for narrator. Scott Brick just has the wrong voice for this thriller. He is way to "sexy" a voice and this book called for a voice with much more fluctuation. Took me 10 CD's before I could forget the narrator. Really spoiled it for me. But the book is awesome

    Loved it. Really had me twisted up, on the side of a thief, hoping he gets away...

    John Grisham at his usual. I couldn't listen fast enough. You could guess the ending, but was exciting enough to keep my ears glued to the radio!!
