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.

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.

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.

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

This was a quick read but not one of my favorites. It was hard for me to figure out the point of the story. Like a teen horror flick all the violence but without a complex plot.

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.

Damian and Carrie Rose are psychopathic murderers for hire. Their new venue is a picture-perfect vacation island. Their adversary will be Peter Macdonald, a young American who forsakes a life of leisure for a confrontation with cold-blooded terror.
I missed this earlier Patterson book when it first came out, but was glad to get the chance to finally read it.

This is an early James Patterson book. Secret government plot to create terror, confusion and collapse through random slaughter of innocent people.

Skips back and forth in time, but well marked with chapter headings. I felt confused at times...but then that's perhaps true about everything with me :-)

Could not follow the story. This book is totally different than other James Patterson that I know off. There are no twist and turn or plot in the story, seem to me that some one else writting this book not the famous New York Time bestseller that I know and love.
