It's getting harder to give Patterson good reviews with these co-writers, I think they are writing most of the stories and they aren't turning out very good.
There are too many storylines going on--1. a robbery/murder(which is suppose to be the main story but gets kind of lost in between the other stories) 2. thefts at hospitals of large expensive equipment(but doesn't get a lot of attention) 3. Kylie's marriage to her addict husband(gets kind of irritating and boring 4. Zach having relationship problems with his girlfriend(and by halfway in the book I just didn't care)
There is nothing special or suspenseful about this book, you'll read a few chapters then put it down and do something else and pick it up later, it really doesn't grab you enough to read it at one sitting.
