This book was recommended to me by my Mom. I loved it. As with all of James Patterson's books, it was a fast read and I had a hard time putting it down. I love his writing.
I usually love JP books. This one just did not deliver like others have. Overall, I dread saying this--but, I would pass on reading this one.
I had a very hard time getting into this story--normally I can not put down his books but, with this book--I kept forcing myself to pick it up and read as I knew it just had to get better since I loved his other books. Finally, with more than half the book over, it started to pick up.
Abbie Elliot and her friends go to Monte Carlo for a girls only retreat. The next day, they are all arrested for murder. The story details the life of Abbie in prison. Eventually Abbie escapes so she can prove as to who really did the murder and to clear her name.
I think I may have found it a tad more interesting if it also talked about the other girls and what they thought but, I am not even really sure about that.
So, to say again--I would skip this book and find something better to read.
I'm elated to discover James Patterson as a NEW (to me) writer. That opens soup MANY new books and books on CD for me!
I HIGHLY recommend this book (and the book on CD, the narrator was really great with women, men, accents. There were only two characters that I didn't like their "voices" and one was a man who had a french accent but sounded like a woman; the other was a jamaican and that just seems like a difficult accent to do, almost a parody of itself). The rest of the book and ALL it's characters, well, that's a LOT of people and I thought the narrator did an amazing job!
UPDATE: Borrowed and finished the whole book. The first part was exciting, the middle about the trial and prison life was boring and drawn out, and the end was exciting once again! Wonder if the authors took turns writing it. One person wrote the exciting parts and the second one wrote the boring ones. It was rather uneven. You have to suspend belief with this story. It was more than fiction; it was really a fantasy. Housewife becomes Ms. James Bond/Ms. 007. Don't know if I will read another one of these "James Patterson-plus-another-author" books again.
