No Way Back

A Novel

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

A fast-paced, riveting tale with strong, compelling characters, No Way Back is an edge-of-your-seat read with nonstop action and a complex mystery.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 11, 2013 – Early in this fevered stand-alone suspense novel from bestseller Gross (15 Seconds), Wendy Gould, a married woman with two stepchildren and literary ambitions, meets Curtis Kitchner, a handsome freelance journalist, in a Manhattan hotel bar. Against her better instincts, Wendy accompanies Curtis up to his room, where an intruder shoots Curtis dead. Wendy manages to kill the intruder in self-defense, but she goes on the run after a badge on the man s body identifies him as a Homeland Security agent. Wendy s fate becomes entwined with that of Lauritzia Velez, a pretty 24-year-old Mexican woman being hunted by vicious killers employed by drug cartel honcho Eduardo Cano as part of a vendetta against Lauritzia s father. Wendy s frantic attempts to avoid being captured or killed before she can discover a way to exonerate herself are somehow tied to the efforts to murder Lauritzia. Narrow escapes, tense situations, and false clues abound as Gross spins the action to an exciting, if improbable, ending.

Customer Reviews

No WayBack

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.


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.

No Way Back

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.
