TCR Episode #126 | Matthew Betley - THE NEIGHBORHOOD

August 1st, 2022

The Crew welcomed a long-anticipated guest this week as Matthew Betley joined the boys to discuss his wildly original new novel, THE NEIGHBORHOOD. His Logan Pike series has long been a Crew favorite, and now Betley takes us on a blood-pumping ride through THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

“Die Hard in a gated community, Matthew Betley’s new book, The Neighborhood, is a stand-on-the-pedal, runaway-train thrill ride of the year. Ever find yourself looking down the wrong end of a gun barrel? That’s exactly what this relentless book will do to your heart rate. Don’t just buy it. Armor up!” —Chris Hauty, national bestselling author of Deep State and Storm Rising.

For most of the citizens of Hidden Refuge, it’s an ordinary Friday night in an ordinary American town. But when men claiming to be police officers show up at their doorsteps in the middle of the night, ordering them to evacuate for their own safety, it’s only the beginning of a long, dark night that will prove to be anything but ordinary. Unbeknownst to most of its residents, Hidden Refuge contains something that very dangerous men desperately want, and they are more than willing to kill to get it.

But Hidden Refuge contains another secret—Zack Chambers, a seemingly unassuming programmer and suburbanite family man who is far more than meets the eye. And while Zack dearly hoped that he’d never again need to use the deadly skills he’d acquired in his former life, when push comes to shove, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect himself and his neighbors. Even if it means taking on a small army of trained killers with only his wits and a ragtag group of allies.

Before the night is over, the blood of the innocent and the guilty alike will be shed, old scores will be settled, and shocking twists will be revealed. Propulsive, brilliantly plotted, and packed with Matthew Betley’s trademark blend of gritty realism and edge-of-your-seat action, The Neighborhood is a can’t-miss thriller.

Matthew Betley is the author of the Logan West Thrillers and a former Marine Officer of ten years. Trained as a scout sniper platoon commander, an infantry officer, and a ground intelligence officer, his experiences include deployments to Djibouti after September 11 and Fallujah and Iraq prior to the Surge. A New Jersey native who considers Cincinnati home but now resides on the East Coast, he graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, with a BA in psychology and minors in political science and sociology.
