Goodreads:  To save the one you love, is there any price you wouldn’t pay?

His wife is sick.
He needs $200,000 to save her.
A mysterious man offers to give him the money with just one catch: He has to murder someone to get it.

Gary Foster’s life is finally heading in the right direction. After years of trying, his wife, Beth, is pregnant, and he recently opened a business with his brother. But one phone call changes everything.... 

After collapsing suddenly, Beth has been rushed to the hospital. Tests reveal a devastating diagnosis: an inoperable brain tumor. Their only hope is an expensive experimental treatment available abroad, with a cost that’s out of their reach. And Beth’s time is running out.... 

Then a strange man approaches Gary and offers the money he needs, on one condition: that he kill someone, no questions asked. End one life to save another.

In this nail-biting debut novel of domestic suspense, one man makes a choice that forces him to confront the darkest reaches of his soul and betray those closest to him. As he’s swept up in a nightmare of escalating violence, he must question his own morality—and determine just how far he’s willing to go to save the woman he loves.

Kritters Thoughts:  Have you ever had to make a decision that feels like the biggest decision of your life?  Gary Foster has to decide between saving his wife and murdering someone, what does he decide to do and how will it all end?

Rarely do I suspend belief when I read.  Yes, I read fiction, but its usually fiction that could really happen and yes this story could happen, but the chances are the slimmest of slim!  So if you suspend all things, this book can be really entertaining.  It even made me think of the decisions that I have had to make that could have sent my life down another path.  Obviously my decisions were not as life threatening as in this book, but there are still big decisions that we each make that are a big deal.  

I enjoyed this book.  It was a fun, quick read during a winter weekend and I would even suggest as an addition to your beach/pool bag for a holiday or vacation.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Ebook 2018 Challenge: 13 out of 100
