15 seconds can tear your life apart . . . Henry Steadman didn't know what was about to hit him when he pulled up to a red light. A successful Florida plastic surgeon, he is in town to deliver a keynote address at a conference when suddenly his life becomes an unrelenting chase to stay alive. Stopped by the police for a minor traffic violation, the situation escalates and he is pulled from his vehicle, handcuffed and told he is under arrest. Several other police cars arrive and the questioning turns scary, but just as Henry is released and about to move on, a blue sedan pulls up and the officer is suddenly killed. As the car speeds away, there is only one suspect left behind–Henry. In that moment, his idyllic life becomes a free fall into hell as he becomes the target of a police manhunt, as well as being pursued by a cunning, unnamed perpetrator bent on some kind of vengeance. When Henry turns to a close friend for help, and he, too, ends up dead, Henry realizes he's being elaborately framed. But in a chilling twist, the stakes grow even darker, and he is unable to go to the police to clear his name, without bringing on dire and deadly consequences. With breakneck pacing and nonstop action, 15 Seconds shows what can happen when even the best life is turned upside down in an instant. It is also the story of an innocent man, framed for murder, who has to save the person he loves the most, all while being drawn closer and closer to an inevitable face-to-face standoff with a man determined to destroy his life.

I really like the author's style. This is a mainstream thriller but much more entertaining than either the James Patterson or Harlan Coben variety. 15 Seconds is an especially good thriller and "chase" novel taking its title from how your life can change in merely 15 seconds. In the beginning of t...

As the title suggests, 15 seconds can make a difference. In Henry Steadman’s case the difference was literally a matter of life and death. Looking forward to a weekend at a Doctors Without Borders convention, including a little golf with his college buddy, Henry is surprised when he is stopped for...

A fun read about a guy who is being framed for a "crime he didn't commit." Very action oriented book, almost written with "the movie" in mind. I still found it infinitely more enjoyable than "Moby Dick". Pros:It kept my attention, and even though you kind of know how everything's going to turn out y...

"15 Seconds" by Andrew Gross cannot rightly be called a mystery, but it can certainly be called a riveting work of suspense and action. Gross is extraordinarily adroit at the art of building seemingly separate plots into one intertwining whole, leading to a crashing and scary and gory climax. He's g...
