Really enjoyed this book! Unlike many authors, James Patterson's books do not all seem to be cut from the same cookie-cutter format. He surprises once again with Lifeguard. Art theft, double-cross, murder, mystery, romance, twists and turns with characters I enjoyed and wanted to learn more about - I found myself "taking the long way" frequently while I was listening so I could hear more!

The story is simple, GOOD GUY (although he has a bad side...he is a thief) meets Tess, a hottie on the beach (we later learn she is not what she seems...well you can guess that..no one is perfect). Anyway, life couldn't get any better....you have been offered an opportunity to make quick (although illegal) money and get the girl of your dreams....when, the unexpectant happens (all your friends who are involved in the heist are murdered, as well as the chick you have fallen for) and you are framed for their deaths. Now the story begins, who killed your friends and your lover and why? While Ned Kelly struggles to find out the truth about who is behind his trouble, he meets another woman, Ellie, a FBI agent who specializes in Art to help him discover the truth. As a host of other characters and villians are revealed, you will find yourself rooting that Ned's luck changes soon. I suggest that you give this easy and quick read a chance and enjoy. There are some interesting revelations and plots.

This book arrived at my home yesterday May 26 at approximately 3 pm... and it is now 5:30 p.m. on May 27.....and I just put the book down finished... I was mesmerized by this book...couldn't put it down...a bizarre tale that took you on a trip, grabbed hold of your attention and wouldn't let you go... I had tears in my eyes at the end page in the book.......HOORAH what a great ending..... I hope everyone who reads this book enjoys it as much as I did..
