All Patrick Davis ever wanted to do was make movies. But after he gets his big break and sells his first screenplay, his life collapses. His Hollywood dreams crumble almost immediately, sending him back to his dreary day job. Even his storybook marriage is on the rocks. And just when it seems things couldn't get any worse, the DVDs start coming in... The ominous DVDs show that someone is watching Patrick and his wife--that the two are being stalked and recorded by cameras hidden around and within their house. Then come the e-mails... Finally, someone confronts Patrick with an offer he can't refuse: to take the mess his life has become and make it all right. Patrick figures it's the offer of a lifetime. But he's dead wrong. Now, with every step, Patrick moves deeper and deeper into a web of intrigue that threatens everything he still has and values in the world. Before he knows it, he's in too deep--and the only way out is to outwit and outplay his unseen opponents at their own game.

One of the most fun books I've read in a while. Couldn't put it down. I think this is my favourite one by Hurwitz so far

Agreed with loudem. Got to page 79 and then gave up. Because the protagonist is such as smarta** (as are his friends/coworkers), there's no suspense

This book has too much roundabouts. Also it has too much non essential details. The book is bogged down in words that doesn't help the plot. The author should have cut half the crap and speed things up. There's too much talking to say nothing. All this gets very dull after a while.
