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.
