An interest, fast paced story with lots of twists and turns. If you're looking for literary greatness this is not the book for you. However, if you are looking for an entertaining read then this is a good choice.

Not really very good. Plot is ok if you scan all the irrelevant BS. I read it in a few hours.

I have not read this book, but I did read many Patterson novels, and I too noticed that his quality of writing has changed for the worse. I believe he lends his name to the publication, but the other writer is writing the story. Mr. Patterson should go back to writing like he did in the earlier years of his career. ALL his books were great in those years.

I found myself starting to 'speed read' this book at a great rate of knots! Dull.

I usually like all the James Patterson books, some maybe more than others. But this one? It's the only book of his that I didn't finish - I gave up after maybe 4 chapters. The main character, and his stupid, useless thoughts, drove me crazy! I was hoping it would stop after a couple of chapters, but quickly realized it wasn't going to. Don't waste your time...

This stunk. The protagonist has so many stream-of-consciousness thoughts it gets in the way of the plot. Patterson needs to consider who he lends his name to on these best-seller books.

I really don't believe James Patterson is writing his own books anymore. The writing in the last 10 has declined severely. The stoyline is boring. The writing is almost infantile. I felt like I was reading a childrens book much of the time. A real dissapointment. I feel like he needs to stop while ahead.

So disappointed in this book. I eagerly read every new book that James Patterson writes, but this book .... didn't measure up. It was boring and I quickly forgot what I had read in the previous chapters. Too much government stuff. Better luck next time James.
