The book begins with the Sanderson family being temporarily housed in Levittown safe-house until one of the members can be debriefed. Lance and Teresa and their two children, Sandy and Sam, where whisked away from their temporary home in Africa because someone saw something that he/she shouldn't have, and they are being protected by Jason, who is obviously hiding something. Trying to figure out which Sanderson is the target for the hired killer that is searching for them provides interest, as does the retired (and sick) policeman next door, who knows things aren't as they seem in the rented house and is determined to protect his neighborhood.
There was a lack of depth in the characters, and while they each seemed interesting, the reader never gets to explore what makes them act the way they do. Even the antagonists seem very one note as they search for, and eventually confront the hidden family. The potential is there, and although I understand the purpose of writing a short book, perhaps this is not the genre for it.
That being said, it was an entertaining few hours for me, and it made me want to search out one of DuBois' full novels and see if he delivers when he isn't working on a limited page budget.
