In the new thriller from critics’ favorite Matthew Klein, Jimmy Thane
thinks that his new job as the CEO of a failing company will help turn
his life around. He should think again.
Jimmy Thane knows all about crossroads. Every time he’s faced with one
he’s taken the wrong path. At the peak of his career, he chose alcohol.
When his job became shaky, he turned to drugs. And when his wife lost
faith in him, he turned to other women. Now, Jimmy’s clean, and he’s at a
new crossroad: he’s landed the job of a CEO at a failing company in
South Florida and has seven weeks to turn it around.
Except, from the moment he enters the building, he senses there’s
something very wrong—the place is too quiet, too empty. When the police
come calling about the disappearance of the former CEO, Jimmy begins to
wonder what he got himself into.
Then he discovers surveillance equipment in his neighbor’s house,
looking straight into his living room. And he begins to notice that his
wife isn’t just tired, she’s terrified, and trying to hide it.
Nothing is as it seems. Jimmy no longer feels like he’s living the
dream. Instead, he’s plunged into the worst kind of nightmare there is.
And when he finally gets to the truth, it’s more shocking and terrifying
than could be imagined.
