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 one is perfect). Anyway, life couldn't get any 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.

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?

This book was such a page turner. You think you might have it figured out, but then something happens that you didn't expect. Keep you guessing until the very end. This was the first James Patterson book I have read and now I am hooked.

I just recently started reading James Patterson. My fater was a real fan so thought I'd try reading one. The first one I read was Swimsuit and it left me wanting more. I really enjoyed his style of writing. Lifeguard was done equally well. Action, romance, mystery. It has it all. Now, I just need to fiqure out my next James Patterson book to read...

Nothing special or memorable about this book. It was well written mixing suspense with love and sex. If you need a filler book this would serve the need.
