One to Go by Mike Page

One to Go

I received this book in hardcover edition in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.

—————————-

Tom Booker is an attorney. He’s running late one day to pick up his daughter and her friends to take them to a museum. He gets caught in the elevator by one of the senior partners who isn’t happy about him skipping out for a while on a Saturday, even though he says he’ll be back. He peels out of his parking spot and races to pick up his daughter and her friends, even though he knows he’s going to be late.

Deciding to do something stupid, he starts a text message while driving across a bridge. He ends up causing an accident and hits a van head on. In the van is his daughter and her friends. The van tips up and looks like it’s going to flip into the river below but everything pauses. Another truck is on fire but the flames and smoke are still. As Tom is trying to break into the van to get at least his daughter out and stop the van from flipping, two people run up to him.

They make a deal with him but he ends up thinking he’s crazy and imagined the deal. The scene is reset and the people in the van don’t die….at that moment. Two weeks later, the driver is brutally murdered. This throws him into action knowing that his daughter and her friends are next. This makes him come to terms of things he never thought he would have to resort too in his life.

I really enjoyed this book. I read it over a few days when I was able too. This is a unique book. I’ve read books before where similar deals were made but never where the person’s family was in jeopardy of dying. This pushes the main character to think faster and react much swifter than in the other books once he realizes it’s not an idle threat. This book is easily read and flows easily from one event into the next. Definitely a crime novel worth reading.
