This was typical non-stop action from Patterson, et. al. I read this over the course of 2 days and with the usual short chapters, it was hard to put down. This one was about a magazine reporter who gets drawn into a very brutal mafia-style hit on a crime boss' attorney that happens while he is trying to interview an ex-baseball player at the next table in a restaurant. I've noticed with several recent Patterson books that he (or whoever writes these) uses a combination of 1st person and 3rd person narrative. I'm not a big fan of this style -- it sometimes is disconcerting and affects the flow of the story. Overall, I would give this one a mild recommendation. Not quite up to par with Patterson's earlier work.

Fast-paced and fun read. Lots of suspense and hard to put down. Not a whole lot in the way of plot or character development, but it delivers on action.

This is not one of James Patterson better works of fiction. In fact the only reason I finished it was because I started it. I did not care for it and hope that he will soon stop mass producing books and get back to real writing.

I'm not a fast reader and I finished it in 2 days! The book keeps your attention. I love that Patterson and Roughan keep the chapters short which makes it easier to keep a readers attention.
It was a page turner with a twist at the end that I never saw coming!
Another hit for Patterson.
