Charlie West just woke up in someone else's nightmare.
He went to bed an ordinary high-school student. He woke up strapped to a chair, covered in blood and bruises. He hurts all over. And a strange voice outside the door just ordered his death.
The last thing he can remember, he was working on homework, practicing karate, day-dreaming of becoming an air force pilot, writing a pretty girl's number on his hand.
Now the police want to arrest him for the death of his best friend. And a team of ruthless killers is rapidly closing in for more drastic measures. He's desperate to survive. And to discover what happened. The truth of the matter is more incredible--and more deadly--than he could ever imagine.
The entire four-novel adventure--now in a single volume."Action sequences that never let up . . . wrung for every possible drop of nervous sweat." --"Booklist" review of "The Long Way Home"
