Description

A reporter for the Bergen News, Chris Turley could never measure up to his father. Edward Turley, a combination of Bob Woodward and Ernie Pyle, was one of the last great investigative reporters and a difficult man to impress. While stuck covering press conferences and town hall meetings, Chris, his father's legend in mind, has always dreamed of his own Pulitzer, however unlikely it seems.

Then one day while he's waiting to meet a source, a giant explosion takes out half of an office building next door. Shocked into action, Chris saves five people from the burning building. His firsthand account in the next day's paper makes him a hero and a celebrity.

And that's not all. The source's next tip delivers a second headline-grabber of a story for Chris, and suddenly his career is looking a lot more like his dad's. But then it seems this anonymous source has had a plan for Chris all along, and his luck for being in the right place at the right time is not a coincidence at all. What seemed like a reporter's dream quickly becomes an inescapable nightmare.

Down to the Wire, David Rosenfelt's shocking new thriller about an ordinary man who gets exactly what he's always wanted at a price he can never pay, is an intense thrill ride that will have readers racing through the pages right up to the end.

        "Near the start of Rosenfelt's dynamite thriller, his second stand-alone after 2008's Don't Tell a Soul, reporter Chris Turley from the Bergen News, is about to meet an anonymous tipster at a Teaneck, N.J., park to discuss "corruption by a high-level government official" when an explosion rips through an office building opposite the park. Chris makes headline news by saving five people from the wreckage. Chris's source, who calls himself "P.T.," soon starts to brag about a killing spree (using remotely detonated bombs and poison darts), which won't end unless Chris kills himself. Aided by his entertainment editor girlfriend, an FBI agent, and a homicide detective, Chris embarks on a wild hunt for the slippery psycho. Might P.T. be embittered Peter Randolph, who blames Chris's late father, a famed journalist, for his own father's suicide? Rosenfelt's sly humor, breathless pacing, and terrific plot twists keep the pages spinning toward the showdown on New Year's Eve in Times Square."

        Near the start of Rosenfelt’s dynamite thriller, his second stand-alone after 2008’s Don’t Tell a Soul
        , reporter Chris Turley from the Bergen News
        , is about to meet an anonymous tipster at a Teaneck, N.J., park to discuss “corruption by a high-level government official” when an explosion rips through an office building opposite the park. Chris makes headline news by saving five people from the wreckage. Chris’s source, who calls himself “P.T.,” soon starts to brag about a killing spree (using remotely detonated bombs and poison darts), which won’t end unless Chris kills himself. Aided by his entertainment editor girlfriend, an FBI agent, and a homicide detective, Chris embarks on a wild hunt for the slippery psycho. Might P.T. be embittered Peter Randolph, who blames Chris’s late father, a famed journalist, for his own father’s suicide? Rosenfelt’s sly humor, breathless pacing, and terrific plot twists keep the pages spinning toward the showdown on New Year’s Eve in Times Square.

        January 1, 2010
        Where's Paterson attorney Andy Carpenter (New Tricks, 2009, etc.) when you need him? In his absence, North Jersey's hit by an epidemic of violence courtesy of a home-grown terrorist with a fixation on an inoffensive reporter.

        Chris Turley doesn't think of himself as a hero. So when an anonymous tip on a corrupt local politician sends him to a meeting just in time to see an office building get blown up and rescue five survivors, the story he writes for the Bergen News doesn't make him out to be a hero. Same thing with the story he writes after the tipster helps him nail Englewood mayor Alex Stanley just as Stanley's nailing a high-priced hooker. Suddenly Chris is the flavor of the month, giving the News's website more traffic than it can handle. But now the tipster, who calls himself"P.T.," turns nasty, killing citizens at random, some by car bombs, some in more inventive ways, and blaming their deaths on Chris. Evidently P.T. has a long-standing grudge against the reporter whose reputation he's made, and for every day Chris declines to commit suicide, P.T. resolves to claim more victims in a rising curve. Local law enforcement calls in the FBI, with predictable nonresults. Can Chris and his buddies at the News, entertainment editor Dani Cooper and online editor Scott Ryder, end the carnage before a high-stakes New Year's Eve deadline?

        An effective page-turner despite by-the-numbers plotting and an unusually obtuse hero whose all-too-accurate mantra is"it's all about me."
