You’ve been abducted from your home. You wake in a strange hotel room to make a terrifying discovery – there’s a bomb strapped around your chest. You have 24 hours to travel a thousand miles and find a code that disarms the device.

Or die.

You have no money. No cell phone. Nothing but the clothes on your back and one other, sinister object – a loaded gun. Through your mounting panic, you wonder what this is all about.

It’s about one question: How much do you want to live?




"Absolutely gripping. WAYPOINT is tense, twisting and fast-paced. Doesn't let up until the final page is turned."

~ Patrick Robinson, author of The New York Times #1 bestseller LONE SURVIVOR


“Matthew Howe’s WAYPOINT is a rare thriller, encompassing all the prime elements of pace, power and heart.  A pulse-pounding marathon, Howe perfectly wraps us into an ever-twisting plot, peopled by fully-realized characters we pray will survive. WAYPOINT is a brilliant debut.  I’d suggest that once you pick it up, don’t plan on turning in early for bed.”

~ Steven Hartov, author of The New York Times bestselling THE HEAT OF RAMADAN and IN THE COMPANY OF HEROES


"WAYPOINT is a fast-paced, action-packed, gripping novel. Vivid and violent scenes come blazing at the reader non-stop. I loved this book. Read it in one sitting. Recommend it to any other thriller-addict like me.  Matthew Howe is right up there with Michael Connelly, hitherto my favorite in the genre.”

 ~ Ernest Brawley, author of THE RAP and SELENA


"A thriller that delivers shocking surprises at every turn and gives us a main character we really care about.  Howe makes the reader think, 'What would I do if this was happening to me?’" 

~ Jill Dearman, author of THE GREAT BRAVURA and BANG THE KEYS


"Full of adrenaline, startling twists, and characters so realistic they jump off the page, WAYPOINT is perfect for fans of action-packed thrillers. I was hooked from the first page.” 

~ J. S. Bailey, author of SERVANT and SACRIFICE


“WAYPOINT is a riveting, bite-your-nails thriller. The characters are real, and you feel their stress and exhaustion, while cheering their resourcefulness.  An excellent first novel from a promising author.”

~ Joe Laudati, author of IN DARKNESS IT DWELLS


“WAYPOINT is inventive, propulsive and exhilarating, a sprint disguised as a marathon, spinning tighter and tighter in the pulse-pounding tradition of Richard Matheson's DUEL.”

~ Burt Shulman, author of SAFE HOUSE: STORIES
