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!

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..

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.

While the plot was decent and suspense was good, I thought the main characters were poorly developed, and the book included many lines that seemed more appropriate for a D-rated suspense movie. I found these lines cheesy and slightly annoying. The reader of the audiobook had a dramatic, husky voice, and perhaps I grew tired of that. I considered stopping the book many times but found that it was still an okay way to pass time while in the car.

Everything is going right for lifeguard Ned Kelley. He is involved with beautiful Tess, and a million dollars is within touching distance. All he has to do is trigger a few alarms to throw the cops off the scent of the robbery of some world-class art. But when Tess is brutally murdered and the others involved in the robbery are massacred, Ned is the prime suspect. Has he been set up?

Patterson and Gross seem to make a pretty good writing team, as this was certainly a solid read about a lifeguard on the run from the law. He manages to hook up with an FBI agent, and they untangle a web of lies to set him free.

Nothing particularly original or earth shattering about the story, but it's enjoyable nonetheless.

I love Patterson. Even when his books arent his usual nail-biting, edge of my seat, have no food in the house or clean underwear because Im ignoring my domestic chores books. Sadly, Lifeguard is one of those books. It was just OK for me. Ned Kelly is a likeable character and I felt a lot of empathy for him and what he goes through in this story. Unfortunately, Ned doesnt seem capable of making smart choices. Not when he falls in love, not when he agrees to help his cousin with a burglary, not when he goes on the run, not when he kidnaps an FBI agent, and not when he nearly gets himself killed on more than one occasion.

I was very disappointed with the FBI agent, Ellie. She came across as a little flaky at times, though she could be quite tenacious at times. Her area of expertise is stolen and forged artwork but she jumps into a murder investigation with both feet, despite repeated admonitions from her supervisor to stay out of it. What I didnt find believable is how she willingly went with Ned when he kidnaps her and then is helping him until he lets her go. OK, so she isnt trained in violent crimes, but she is still an FBI agent, so why wasnt she putting up a tiny bit of resistance?

Thrown into this story are a lot of supporting characters that I had a very hard time keeping track of and how relevant they were to the story. So, instead of the heart-pumping suspense I have come to anticipate and expect when I pick up a Patterson book, I got a mostly mediocre story that is just OK.

If you are looking for depth and substance when you pick up a book, give this one a pass. If you are looking for a fluff mystery to read on the beach or during your lunch break, this will fit the bill.

A story of a young man coming from an improvished background who gets mixed up with art thieft, murder and a love interest which is unusual...a petty thief and an FBI agent......Drama keeps you on the edge of your seat with each turn of the page.....One of the best Patterson/Gross novels. You will enjoy it.

Alittle slow in starting but once it starts going , it went. The characters are very good and interact with each other in a method that makes totally good sense. Normally do not like Andrew Gross as an author but combine him with James Patterson and it became a VERY good book.

This was the first James Patterson book I've listened to on CD and I'm hooked! The plot line involves fine art and a heist gone wrong, which made the story even more interesting to me since I'm an art lover. There's a love interest, a 'family of origin' problem, and lots of surprises as the story moves along. I never thought I would enjoy a mystery like this but if you're looking for a really engaging story that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last word,this book is for you!

The wildest thriller get from "one of America's most influential authors". Working as a lifeguard at a luxurious Florida resort, Ned Kelly meets the woman of his dreams. It feels perfect in every way - except that she's used to caviar and Manolo Blahniks, and he's used to burgers and flip-flops. So when Ned's cousin offers to cut him in on a fast break-and-enter job, Ned can't turn it down. The risk is high, and the reward is even greater - $5 million. But the robbery goes devastatingly wrong. Forced to run away from his town and the woman he's fallen in love with, Ned knows that only distance and secrecy can save his life. But who is pursuing him? The FBI? Whoever sabotaged the heist? Or is it all somehow tied in to his new love-and his oldest enemies?

James Patterson does it again. Thoroughly likable protagonists and dispicable antagonists!! A sure thing heist turns deadly, and Ned Kelly, the guy who was only supposed to create a diversion, is the only one left alive. The story of how he tracks down the real perpetrators and the relationship he developes with the FBI agent who believes in him, makes for great reading.

Action-packed thriller/mystery about characters that you can care about. Lifeguard Ned Kelly could be put away for a murder he did not commit, purely on circumstantial evidence. A gorgeous beach dame invites him for a romp in her richly-appointed hotel room, and hours later he learns she is dead.
Unfortunately for him, all his friends are from the wrong side of the tracks -- and also wind up dead. So he heads for the old homestead outside Boston to find someone he can trust. The plot keeps getting thicker and thicker and you will not want to put this book down.

Ned Kelly has met the woman of his dreams. His cousin has offered to cut him on a deal worth a million dollars. A simple break-and-enter. His dreams are all on the verge of coming true. But on the night of the heist something goes horribly wrong and Ned finds his life spinning out of control.

Not a masterpiece but it was a nice escapist read. Ned Kelly was a likeable character, the female FBI agent was rather farfetched. The villain rather snotty and annoying. The plot was enjoyable and kept moving at a nice clip. A good book for when you dont want to read anything too heavy.

From the flyleaf:

The danger isn't in the water. Working as a lifeguard at a Florida resort, Ned Kelly meets a woman he is wild about, the woman of his dreams. It feels perfect in every way - except that she prefers caviar and Manolo Blahniks, and he is used to burgers and flip-flops. She is a guest at the luxurious hotel - he lives above a garage.

So when Ned's cousin offers to cut him in on a rich deal he's been commissioned to execute, Ned can't turn him down. The plan is simple, just a fast break-and-enter. The risk is high, and the reward is even greater - $5 million. But on the night of the heist,something goes devastatingly wrong.

Ned walks away from his job, his town, and the woman he's fallen in love with. Runs away, actually, knowing that only velocity and secrecy can save his life. But who is pursuing him? The FBI? Whoever sabotaged the heist? Or is it all somehow tied into his new love - and his oldest enemies?

Written with the astonishing pace and hairpin-turn plotting that only James Patterson can master, Lifeguard is the wildest thriller yet from "one of American's most influential authors" (New York Times)

A little predicable until the twist at the very end. Still I like Patterson's writing style, with short chapters that makes you flip pages.

Working as a lifeguard at a luxurious Florida resort, Ned Kelly meets the woman of his dreams. It feels perfect in every way except that she's used to caviar and Manolo Blahniks, and he's used to burgers and flip-flops. So when Ned's cousin offers to cut him in on a fast break-and-enter job, Ned can't turn it down. The risk is high, and the reward is even greater-$5 million. But the robbery goes devastatingly wrong. Forced to run away from his town and the woman he's fallen in ove with, Ned knows that only distance and secrecy can save his life, But who is pursuing him? The FBI? Whoever sabotaged the heist? Or is it all somehow tied in to his new love-and his oldest enemies?

Intriguing murder mystery, but I don't like this work as much as Patterson's Alex Cross series.
