No Way Back is a thrilling page-turner from Andrew Gross, the New York Times bestselling author of 15 Seconds and The Blue Zone. One woman is framed for a horrific crime, and desperate to prove her innocence.
A chance meeting with a stranger in a hotel ends in a shocking murder. Wendy Gould is an average mom—and the only witness. Nanny Lauritzia Velez knows a shocking secret that could prove to be deadly. Both of their lives in danger, this unlikely pair must work together against a network of dangerous men who want nothing more than to see them dead.

I think I can only say WOW about this one. Wonderful read by a wonderful writer. Loved, loved, loved this book! Andrew Gross is right up there with my favorite, James Patterson. 55
The plot of this book is fine... but why did the author not consult with a Mexican, a native speaker? Were native speakers of Spanish hard to find in NY? Every single name (Lauritzia, are you kidding me?) and quotation in Spanish is awfully, terribly wrong (think of an American character saying something like: "Those policials organisations are going to ruin us whatever we do." Undermines any verisimilitude necessary for the reading of fiction. This sloppiness mirrors what the author himself wants to decry about US policy on drugs: an absolutely amateurish, disrespectful attitude to anything Hispanic, including --beginning with-- language. 15
Have read all of his books. This one as good as the others. He hooks you at the start and it's hard to put down. It was a good read. 45
