From the eleventh storey of a Los Angeles high-rise, Nate looks out on the city - the traffic, the trees, the beach beyond. He breathes deeply. And then he moves one foot off the ledge and into thin air. But before he can jump, gunshots ring out from within the building. A robbery is in progress. And Nate, with nothing to lose but the life he was about to give up, decides to intervene. What happens next plunges Nate into mortal danger . . . and reunites him with the family he hasn't known for years - a family he will do anything to protect. Packed with twists and suspense, hurtling forward at relentless speed, The Survivor is a gripping, unforgettable story of sacrifice, redemption and heroism - a thriller to rival the very best of Linwood Barclay and Harlan Coben.The grille of the Jeep pointed up the paved walk at Pavlo Shevchenkoa#39;s front doors. ... the open drivera#39;s door, holding in his hands a football-size hunk of fine- grained granite hea#39;d pulled from Pavloa#39;s own front yard. ... Nate had wrapped two blocks of C4 with tape, adhered them above the gas tank, and sunk a military- issue M6 electric blasting cap into the white putty. ... The service manual was long gone, his registration tattered and thin, and the proof-of-insurance slip too small to risk.
