PRAISE FOR JAMES PATTERSON:

"The prolific Patterson seems unstoppable."
USA Today

"James Patterson knows how to sell thrills and suspense in clean, unwavering prose."—People

"Patterson's novels are sleek entertainment machines, the Porsches of commercial fiction, expertly engineered and lightning fast."—Publishers Weekly

About the Author

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 240 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

More About the Author

It is no surprise that in January, 2010, The New York Times Magazine featured James Patterson on its cover and hailed him as having "transformed book publishing," and that Time magazine hailed him as "The Man Who Can't Miss." Recently, NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams profiled Patterson's prolific career, AARP named him one of the "50 Most Influential People Who Make Our Days a Little Brighter," and Variety featured him in a cover story highlighting his adventures in Hollywood.

In 2013, it was estimated that one-in-five of all hardcover suspense/thriller novels sold was written by James Patterson, his books have sold over 300 million copies worldwide, and he holds the Guinness record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers of any author. And his success isn't based solely on thrillers like the perennially popular Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club and Michael Bennett series. Patterson is now also the current bestselling author in the young adult and middle grade categories.

He's been called the busiest man in publishing, and that's not just because of his own books. For the past decade, James has been devoting more and more of his time to championing books and reading. From the James Patterson Pageturner Awards, to his website ReadKiddoRead.com, to his College Book Bucks scholarships and his regular donations of hundreds of thousands of books to schools here in the states and troops overseas (see interviews on Fox & Friends, The Dennis Miller Radio Show and CNN.com), Patterson has passed on his passion of books and reading and supported those who do the same. Jim personally funded a major ad campaign re-printing a recent opinion piece on CNN.com about how it is our responsibility to get our kids reading. The ad has run in the New York Times, The New Yorker, and USA Today. Those ads are a call to action to parents to make their kids reading a top priority; and were featured by USA Today here. Patterson believes that we cannot rely on schools, teachers or the government to get our kids reading; only parents can make this crucial change in the reading habits of our kids. Here are links to some interviews on his first-ever dual lay down (two books, one for parents and one for kids, in one day): AOL's You've Got, NBC's "Today Show" with Hoda and Kathie Lee, USA Today and Family Circle, NBC's "Today Show" with Al Roker, as well as an interview with AARP.

What a fun book! The mega-bestselling team of James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge have whipped up a woman-on-the-run story that's perfect summer reading. Nina Bloom is drawn back into her murky past by a series of unfortunate events, and forced to confront the bad guys who almost destroyed her long ago. It seems her name wasn't always Nina, and she...well, see for yourself. The vivid central character and the relentless pace kept me reading straight through to the end.

James Patterson's solo books are my favorites, particularly the Alex Cross series, but I think Ledwidge is the best of his many collaborators. This stand-alone thriller is as swift and engrossing as their series about the NYPD cop with the 10 kids (Run for Your Life, etc.). And Nina--a.k.a. Jeanine--is a terrific heroine. Take this one to the beach and enjoy. Recommended.

What a great read! Patterson and Ledwidge took me on a suspenseful, roller coaster ride that I couldn't get off till the book was finished. I actually held my breath a few times and my heart was racing with all the action and suspense. Jeanine/Nina is a character you fall in love with from the very beginning. I pre-orderd this on my Kindle after reading the first 29 chapters for free. When I woke up this morning, there it was downloading on my Kindle ready for me to finish. I'm an avid reader and a big fan of James Patterson, this is one of his best books ever!

Books that Patterson writes with Ledwidge have been some of my favorites. This one is up to their usual standards. It's a twisty, turny tale that moves very quickly. Nina's a great character. I loved the pacing of the book and finished it in one afteroon! The quick pacing of this book is what raised it from a 3-star to a 4-star read for me. I was in the mood for something fast and wouldn't require a lot of thinking. This book was perfect for me.

Some things in the book are more than a bit too coincidental and there's melodrama enough for three books, but this is still a fun, summer thriller. I am glad I read it and think that some people that are bummed on Patterson might enjoy this book more than some of his more recent ones. Try a sample, and I think this book will hook you from the start as it did me. It's so easy to get caught up and swept away before you know it.

Overall, great beach read. Perfect for summer vacation, and just in time!

This book is a series of bizarre coincidences strung together. Early in the novel, the narrator, Jeanine, AKA "Mermaid," twenty-one, decides to drive recklessly. She had been partying heartily with some college friends in Key West when she catches her boyfriend cheating on her. So, she furiously roars out into the night in his muscular Camaro. (She had passed out drunk just a few hours before.) She ends up slamming into a man after losing control of the car.

She should have done the right thing and report the accident, but she seizes what appears to be a chance to escape jail time. The effects of this decision linger for decades; the book extends past her fortieth birthday.

There's a vicious corrupt cop, a serial killer, plenty of sun and sea, and a river of booze. A man's ear gets ripped off. A drowning dog bites a drowning woman in a submerged Mercedes. A sober stint with a prominent New York law firm balances some of the misadventures.

It flows fairly well, a "quick read." (You could probably read this while simultaneously flipping burgers on your backyard grill and listening to a baseball game.) However, far too often, when one of the plot's many twists and turns approaches authors James Patterson and and Michael Ledwidge resort to what's called a "deus ex machina," or incredible development which miraculously keeps the story going. Using this device a time or two might work in light escapist fiction like this, but it's done beyond the point of absurdity here. If you persevere to the chaotic conclusion, you'll find yourself repeatedly exclaiming "What a coinkydink!" and slapping yourself upside the head. Try not to poke yourself in the eye.

This is a book filled with ridiculous coincidences. Tack up a list of possible plot turns, throw a dart, and write the next chapter. I can't believe JP really wrote this. He should be ashamed to have his name on this junk.

I have been a fan of James Patterson for many years, but this book was an embarassment. There were so many riduculous inconsistencies in the plot that is was laughable. The conclusion was so "over the top" that I think I will think twice about buying other books from this author collaboration.

I'm sorry to be negative, but if I save one person from buying this book I'll feel I've done well in saving someone from spending their money on on a less then stellar novel. Patterson like many other well known authors get these books published because of their history of putting out a great read. This book is so weak at so many levels and I don't want to take the time to get into all of them. I need a slightly plausible plot, I don't care if the protaganist is bullet resistant for example, but gosh I need a little meat. If you like Sanford, Child or Freeman, run from this book.

Whenever a see a co-author I'm immediately suspect because the author is too lazy to write the whole book. I knew better, but I saw the positive reviews so I though what the heck, I'm wrong all the time, but alas I wasn't wrong here. It has a couple of fun twists, but other than that it was just a not good use of my time and money.

Now if you don't need any plausibility, believe in coincidences of the most outlandish sort and want a fast read, this is your book. If not grab a Sanford, etc. and have some fun.

As to Patterson, he use to write so well, I wish THAT Patterson would return. Read "Kiss the Girls", now that's a good read by Patterson. If you want a good Patterson go back in time and pick one of those novels, he was just awesome back then, kept me going all night long.
