    First and foremost let me just report to you a phenomenon I WON THIS BOOK I WON THIS BOOK I joined a giveaway for this book and the kind and awesome author picked me as one of the lucky winners of a physical copy of the book delivered right at my doorstep I’ve never had much luck in these things until now so really thank you so much Mr Dan KrzyzkowskiI won’t even attempt pronouncing your last name but thank you Now onto the review I joined the giveaway contest for the book for a reason and that’s mainly because the premise of the novel really caught my interest It promises of a thrilling suspenseful read and I did get what I was promised Once I started reading the book I couldn’t put it down In fact I read it in one sitting not only because it was a short read but also because it was fast paced and rather uniue It’s been so long since I’ve read a book where all the events take place in a single time setting Yes there is a prologue and epilogue but the very meat of the story takes place in a single time when on a stormy night on the year 1994 when technological access wasn’t as awesome as it is now seven year old Justin at his house calls Call A Friend hotline where Leslie a volunteer takes his call believing all she’ll have to do is cheer up a child on a lonely night It turns out Justin needs so much than cheering up because his house is being invaded GASPSThus like I told yah once you start reading the book there is never going back It doesn’t matter if your heart may fail to beat or that you may forget to breathe; you just have to read it through the end The author surely knows how to build suspense and how to fully grip the reader with his impeccable and imaginative writing style The only thing that kept me from giving it five stars is the excessive use of the term view spoiler Cyclopean eye Perhaps use third eye or Gray eye or Superman eye too Lol hide spoiler

    This is a uick and fun read It's fast; you can probably finish it in one sitting if you've got some time I had to work a full day and I still pretty much finished this almost in one dayI think probably my favorite part which is weird considering it's fast paced is that it takes place in 1994 No cellphones no internet no satellites with constant connection to the outside world A lonely boy is a lonely boy because he is stuck inside all day with nothing else to do He's bored of playing his Nintendo who gets bored of playing Nintendo? It was a change of scenery from contemporary works and isn't a decade that's generally chosen to write about At least not yet anywayI enjoyed the ending I liked the twist at the end though it seemed to come out of nowhere And importantly I liked that all of Leslie's decisions were actually explained She didn't make stupid decisions that had no basis anywhere which can be pretty usual with action or thriller books Serious kudos for that I have a friend who would most likely enjoy this so I'll spread the love and pass it on

    I was engrossed in this book for the most part but the ending had a lot to be desired Super uick read you could probably read it in 2 hours but half of that is side story that may be interesting and yet has nothing to do with the main plot

    Leslie Calloway’s life did not necessarily follow the path she had anticipated but all in all it was good She felt fortunate so she wanted to give back in some way Events in her past made volunteering at 1 800 FRIENDS a call center for children whose parents are out of the house a good fit It’s a call center set up in the basement of church with outdated phone systems a standing protocol not to call 911 there had been some crank call issues in the past and manned on a totally volunteer basis On one particular night with a major winter storm brewing outside Leslie wonders how she herself is going to get home to her son and to relieve the babysitter when the phone rings Seven year old Justin is on the line and he has just told Leslie that there is a man in his basementSo begins the hours long ordeal for Leslie on one end of the phone and Justin on the other Leslie does everything she knows how to do but eventually she decides protocol be damned and calls 911 the storm must have brought down the lines and no one answers with her heart pounding she realizes it’s just her and Justin and despite the storm she needs to get him out of that house As she is trying to save Justin the crisis takes an unexpectedly personal turn and her panic escalatesAt 164 pages this is not an exceptionally long book but it sure does pack a punch Told in Leslie’s first person narrative the reader finds themselves sitting right there in the room as she continuously tries to move Justin to a safer place The suspense is nerve tingling If you pick this book up make sure you set aside a block of time because you are going to want to read it from the first page to the last in one sitting I know I didThis story takes place in 1994 I did not think anything of that until it came to my attention that this was not just a choice by the author to maybe explain some of the “dated” phone euipment but due to the fact that this book was first published about ten years ago According to some other reviews he has revised the book tightened up the editing and added some sections possibly fleshing out Leslie’s personal side Whatever compelled this revision it worked I’d like to thank Mr Krzyzkowski for sending me a copy of this book at no charge in the hope that I would post an honest reviewI read library books previously gently loved books brand new books where no one has cracked the spine yet and I read on my ereader as well as my tablet so I don’t often speak to the physical attributes of the books I read However I want to add here that for a paperback edition this was a lovely book to hold and read The book has nice crisp white better than average uality paper with a clean font that made reading this page turner even enjoyableI am definitely going to check into Mr Krzyzkowski other book “One Lane Bridge”

    I found the plot of this book pretty boring I didn't feel any tension or anxiety over Justin's predicament because the writing was so flat If it were an audio book I imagine it being read by a robot in monotone from a teleprompter It lacked the reuisite intensity I didn't care about Pat because I didn't get to know him or get a sense of his relationship with his mom He was an abstract a plot device only I was also hoping for a dark twist but I guess it was not that genre The one plus is that it was a short read breezed through it uickly
