Chris Turley, a reporter for the Bergen News, is skeptical when he gets a call from someone wanting to meet him to hand over information about a government official. When Chris arrives at the appointed spot, a nearby building blows up and he becomes a hero by saving five people's lives. Soon, Chris realizes there's a madman who calls himself P.T. that has a vendetta against him and will keep killing people unless Chris commits suicide. Chris along with the local police and the FBI race to find out P.T.'s real identity before more people die. Down to the Wire is Rosenfelt's second stand-alone thriller and is good, but I enjoyed the last two books in his Andy Carpenter series more (better main character), along with his first stand-alone, Don't Tell a Soul (better story). The book will be published in March.
