A pulse-pounding bestseller from the author of ORPHAN X. I know you, don't I?' Five words - that's all it takes to plunge Mike Wingate and his family into mortal danger.
Mike doesn't recognise the crippled stranger who approaches him at a party ...but the stranger seems to know all about him. What has Mike done? Do they have the wrong man? Overnight, the threats become attacks, and Mike, his wife, and their young daughter learn they aren't safe anywhere -especially not their own home.
He doesn't know who they are. He doesn't know what they want. But there's no time to figure it out - because his enemies have killed before, and he's next.

Good fast plot, but the characters are somewhat stereotypical. Still, good read if you like such kind of books.
Review by dsdmd
You're Next started off at a slow jog. There was enough suspense to keep you reading but certainly not enough to keep you on the edge of your seat. Unfortunately this took up about half the book. At that point the action and the suspense both took off with the last half of the book finally reaching the thriller category. There were a few inaccuracies in the book (e.g. with the HIPPA laws, charts are no longer put on hospital room doors with tabs with the patients' names on them--patient privacy), this didn't distract from the storyline. The characters were mostly well developed, especially Shep, the very loyal foster brother and career criminal and one of my favorites. While there were several murders and attempted murders, I did not think the violence was overdone or overly graphic.While it may not have been as fast paced as I would have liked, I enjoyed this book and would read more of Mr. Hurwitz.

Loved this book....a slightly slow start, but stay with it, well worth the effort! Kept me guessing until the very end, and makes you want more.

This is an ok book. Its a bit like a Harlen Coben or a Linwood Barclay thriller. The main character is Mike Wingate a builder and family man. He is being threatened by some dodgy characters, he comes home to find his wife injured he has to get himself and his daughter away he calls on his old step brother Shepard to assist him. Mike goes on the run from the Police and the bad guys sometimes the Police are working with the bad guys. Mike is unaware why he is being hunted he then to his complete surprise finds out he is a quarter Indian and the bad guys want to kill him and his daughter so they can keep all the money a casino operating on an old indian reservation ground for themselves. Mike with the help of Shepard kill the baddies and receives the money from the casino. More importantly he is able to be reunited with his wife and daughter.
