15 Seconds
15 seconds can tear your life apart . . . Henry Steadman never knew what was about to hit him when he pulled up to a red light. Stopped by the police for a minor traffic violation--pulled from his vehicle, handcuffed, and told he is under arrest. Then a blue sedan drives up, a police officer is shot dead, and the car speeds away, leaving behind one suspect: Henry Steadman. Suddenly his life becomes an unrelenting chase to stay alive. Henry is the target of a massive police manhunt while also being pursued by a cunning, unnamed predator bent on terrifying vengeance. With breakneck pacing and nonstop action, 15 Seconds is the story of an innocent man who must save the person he loves most by confronting a man determined to destroy his life.

This book gripped me from the very beginning. It's a real page turner, regarding a doctor who is set up for murder when he goes to a conference.

Hackneyed writing, unbelievable dialogue, ridiculous characterization... I don't understand what goes through an editor's head when they agree to publish drivel like this. Don't waste your time.

Absolutely thrilling book! Couldn't put it down. Started it at 9:00 a.m. and finished it at 2 p,m. that day. The action never stops and I'll be sure to read more of this author.

Decent mystery suspense novel. There was one unfinished storyline that the author could've addressed.

I didn't like this book, but I still finished it anyway because it was a simple read and good company while lounging in the sun. The villain's motives were thin and not believable. The switching from 1st to 3rd person at random chapter intervals was not my cuppa tea. Pop culture references were contrived and overused.

A totally innocent ride turning into a catastrophe! Although this book was easy reading, I found myself reading "just one more chapter," until the end. Definitely recommend.
