      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 fatherís legend in mind, has always dreamed of his own Pulitzer, however unlikely it seems.

    Then one day while heís 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 dayís paper makes him a hero and a celebrity.

    And thatís not all. The sourceís next tip delivers a second headline-grabber of a story for Chris, and suddenly his career is looking a lot more like his dadís. 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 reporterís dream quickly becomes an inescapable nightmare.

    Down to the Wire, David Rosenfeltís shocking new thriller about an ordinary man who gets exactly what heís 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.
