This was typical non-stop action from Patterson, et. al. I read this over the course of 2 days and with the usual short chapters, it was hard to put down. This one was about a magazine reporter who gets drawn into a very brutal mafia-style hit on a crime boss' attorney that happens while he is trying to interview an ex-baseball player at the next table in a restaurant. I've noticed with several recent Patterson books that he (or whoever writes these) uses a combination of 1st person and 3rd person narrative. I'm not a big fan of this style -- it sometimes is disconcerting and affects the flow of the story. Overall, I would give this one a mild recommendation. Not quite up to par with Patterson's earlier work.

Typical page-turning excitement I've come to expect from James Patterson. Would recommend to all fans.

Fast-paced and fun read. Lots of suspense and hard to put down. Not a whole lot in the way of plot or character development, but it delivers on action.

This is not one of James Patterson better works of fiction. In fact the only reason I finished it was because I started it. I did not care for it and hope that he will soon stop mass producing books and get back to real writing.

I'm not a fast reader and I finished it in 2 days! The book keeps your attention. I love that Patterson and Roughan keep the chapters short which makes it easier to keep a readers attention.
It was a page turner with a twist at the end that I never saw coming!
Another hit for Patterson.

This book started out pretty good, but by page 150, I just gave up. Patterson's writing ? Was it his writing or the co author doing the writing? Luck for me it was a library book, and I wasn't out the $28.

This book has more twists and turns than a mountain switchback road, and the book's hero is likable, too. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see reporter Nick Daniels show up in a few more books in the not too distant future.

Another page-turner by James Patterson. I couldn't put it down! He definitely knows how to write a roller coaster of a ride book.

I did in fact enjoy this book. Typical James Patterson mystery. It read quickly, involved a Mafia connection (which I always enjoy) and interesting characters.

I thought this was a very good book. I had a hard time putting it down. There are several twists and turns and it keeps you guessing right up to the end.

This was an easy read with an interesting plot, but Patterson has written stories that I found more interesting. I thought the love interest side-story was a bit trite.

I couldn't wait to finish this book! Not because it was interesting, but with a gruesome murder or crazy chase by big bad Mafia types in every short chapter, I just wanted to get to the end. Patterson's co-author, who I assume penned this novel, used the short chapter technique to keep people reading, with a cliffhanger every 3-4 pages. The story was a convoluted chase by a magazine writer to interview a has-been baseball player. Definitely not one of Patterson's best or more coherent plotlines.

Another exciting mystery by James Patterson. This one jumped around a little more than I like, so I gave it a 4 star.

108 chapters, which I believe brings the total that he has published to 64,818 (more or less)
