As a small-town reporter for the Bergen News, Chris Turley could never measure up to his father, Edward--one of the last great investigative journalists. With his father's legend ever-present, Chris dreams of his own Pulitzer, as he bides his time covering press conferences and town hall meetings.
Then one day his fortunes turn. While waiting to interview a source, Chris witnesses the explosion of a nearby office building, and is thrust into action rescuing five people from near-certain death. His firsthand account in the next day's newspaper makes him an instant hero and a celebrity. And that's not all. The source's next tip leads to a second headline-grabbing story. Suddenly, Chris's career is looking a lot more like his father's.
But what seemed like a reporter's dream, quickly becomes an inescapable nightmare. This anonymous source has had a plan for Chris all along, and his fortune for being in the right place at the right time is not a coincidence at all.
Down to the Wire, David Rosenfelt's shocking new thriller about an ordinary man who gets exactly what he's always wanted at a price he can never pay, is an intense thrill ride that will have readers racing through the pages right up to the end.

Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Near the start of Rosenfelt's dynamite thriller, his second stand-alone after 2008's Don't Tell a Soul, reporter Chris Turley from the Bergen News, is about to meet an anonymous tipster at a Teaneck, N.J., park to discuss "corruption by a high-level government official" when an explosion rips through an office building opposite the park. Chris makes headline news by saving five people from the wreckage. Chris's source, who calls himself P.T., soon starts to brag about a killing spree (using remotely detonated bombs and poison darts), which won't end unless Chris kills himself. Aided by his entertainment editor girlfriend, an FBI agent, and a homicide detective, Chris embarks on a wild hunt for the slippery psycho. Might P.T. be embittered Peter Randolph, who blames Chris's late father, a famed journalist, for his own father's suicide? Rosenfelt's sly humor, breathless pacing, and terrific plot twists keep the pages spinning toward the showdown on New Year's Eve in Times Square.
