James Patterson can keep us turning pages, but don't expect a satisfying conclusion from this book. Instead, imagine turning to the last page and finding "TO BE CONTINUED" in all caps. Although the last page doesn't read that way, it might as well. This is clearly the first in a series of at least one additional book that will feature Patterson's latest antagonist, a particularly nasty Russian Mafia boss who calls himself "the Wolf."
Another winner from James Patterson. Pulls you in and keeps you enthralled until the very last page! I've spent way too many late nights with James!! I just can't put his books down....and this one is no different! Always keeps you guessing!
