Don't Panic -- At Least Until You Finish This Great Thriller
PANIC ATTACK, by Jason Starr
Carlos Sanchez wasn't expecting anyone to be home, much less have an entire clip emptied into him as he reached the top of the stairs of the brownstone he breaks into in Forest Hills Gardens, Queens. The shooter, psychologist, Adam Bloom, is also surprised: instead of being hailed as a hero for defending his wife and daughter in his own home, the media blast him as a vigilante. Even worse, the sociopathic Johnny Long, going along with his pal Carlos for an easy score, decides to make the Blooms pay in more blood for the incident after he escapes into the night.
Once again, Starr succeeds elegantly in scaring the stuffing out of us...
