Made my stomach turn. I've read plenty of James Patterson and expected plenty of violence, but this was nothing but a blood bath. Too gory for me.

Very impressive reader "Lou Diamond Phillips" gives this story drama and excitement. Story line is parallel to the Uprisings in "Third World" countries. The hero is downplayed within an enormous cast of characters and this tended to confuse me. The villians are many but the central Villians are easier to distringuish Set of 5 CD's with a very fast 6 hours of listening time. I was entertained after getting through the first two disks.

DH says this one is "rougher" than most of Patterson's books. Murder and mayhem ... all wrapped up in a good story.

This is one of James Patterson's earlier books. It is a pretty good read, but I have to admit I did not enjoy it as much as his more recent books. It is worth a read though.

This is one of Patterson's earliest works, which is why some reviewers claim "it's not like the Patterson I'm used to". Personally, I think Patterson has gotten way too formulaic in his writing, seemingly seeking to put out MORE books each year (for the money!) than put out BETTER books each year. This early story is gritty and pure thriller, and well worth the read. I like Patterson and wish he hadn't lost the edge he demonstrates in this book.

Very fast-paced, filled with drama...if you're into James Patterson, this is right on a par with his other books, and you will be satisfied with it.
