This book is simply drivel and James Patterson should be ashamed and embarrassed. I've read 25-30 of Patterson's novels over the years including his excellent Alex Cross series and I normally eagerly await the next installment. Therefore, I was looking forward to another great read when I ordered this "co-authored" waste of time. Patterson is one of the great authors of his generation who writes tight compelling novels that are well researched and always full of suspense and believable characters. It is so sad to see him stoop to this level. I can't believe he even read this before allowing it to go to print never mind actually writing any of it. About halfway through the book I started to think it must be written tongue-in-cheek but sadly I was mistaken.
Thankfully, Coben, Sanford, Child, Elsner, Parker and a few other authors continue to take pride in their craft and maintain their integrity. I'm going to chalk this up as a $12 learning experience and never again purchase a novel that is co-authored. Hopefully anyone who reads this review will save the expense.

There was a time when Patterson actually wrote books. Now he farms them out to co-authors who create the most unbelievable plots and characters. The story is told in 1st person, which is somewhat interesting, except that the character - Ben - constantly makes reference to old movie actors and moving lines as he is shot at, beaten, and chased by Federal Agents and Russian assassins. The "plot" just skips along like many of todays " action movies" where anything goes. It will be the last Patterson book, I ever buy.

Few chapters in, throwing in the towel. Stupid, annoying movie/presidential trivia nonsense keeps breaking into my train of thought and little else is happening. Not worth my time. Another instance where Patterson is laughing all the way to the bank.

I love James Patterson books. I stopped reading this book at chapter 10. I didn't really understand what this book was about. The killer was getting on my nerves with the movie quotes. This book was a really disappointing.

I was really wanting to like this book even after the first few chapters. I'm a huge Patterson fan but this was a waste of money to me. The trivia is annoying and makes no sense and made me want to skip ahead. Was hoping this would be another winner but please wait for the paperback or borrow it, it's not worth the $'s

I'M NOT AT ALL PLEASED WITH JP's LENDING HIS NAME TO OTHER CRAPPY AUTHOR WANNABES. HALF THIS BOOK FILLED WITH INANE AND STUPID MOVIE AND ACTOR REFERENCES. IS THIS NOT PIRACY OR SIMPLY INFRINGEMENT? AT BEST IT IS SIMPLY FILLER!

HAS PATTERSON RETIRED? DOES HE REALLY NEED STAND IN COAUTHORS? I'M DONE UNTIL HIS NAME ONLY APPEARS ON "HIS" BOOKS.

I INTEND TO ASK FOR A REFUND FROM AMAZON ON THIS KINDLE EDITION.

SAVE YOUR MONEY.

Very very disappointing. Sorry I bought it. I hung in there for six chapters until I just didn't see the point. I will be much more careful before buying another one of JP's books and that makes me sad.

This guy rambles way too much. This does not read like a James Patterson. I've read all of his. This one is not nearly as good. The plot gets waylaid by all the non-sensical references to movies. Maybe Benjamin should have taken his medicine for bi-polar and ADHD. I don't think I will purchase another written with this co-writer. I've left it for my husband to read. Lets see how he rates it.
