"We are of opinion that instead of letting books grow moldy behind an iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read." - Jules Verne

15 Seconds by Andrew Gross
To be published July 10, 2012 by William Morrow (DWD's Reviews received a preview copy from the publisher)
Andrew Gross has learned a thing or two from his former writing partner, James Patterson. In this case, he has learned to deliver a great summer read. Nothing too complicated. Don't think about it too much - just go with the book and let it take you for a ride.
In 15 Seconds, we get a man-on-the-run because he is falsely accused of murdering a police officer. Henry Steadman is a well-respected plastic surgeon who donates lots of time and money for worthy causes. Suddenly, he's being hunted by every police officer in town for a murder that he did not commit (but he did witness it) - and they are in a shoot first, ask questions later mood. To make matters worse, Henry gets a phone call from the real killer telling him that his daughter has been kidnapped and will be killed if Henry turns himself in.
So, Henry runs for his life while he tries to figure out who really killed the police officer and has taken his daughter.
This book can be found on Amazon.com here: 15 Seconds.
I rate this book 4 stars out of 5.
