From Publishers Weekly
To be published on Valentine's Day, this solid and enjoyable but not exceptional thriller about a Black Widow killer has been selected by Bookspan as the "2005 International Thriller of the Year." That's obviously jumping the gun, and probably has more to do with the unusual sales gambit by which Bookspan was allowed to sell the book prior to bookstore distribution than with the novel's quality. Still, megaseller Patterson, here writing for the first time with Roughan (The Up and Comer), again shows his usual flair for brisk narrative, strong suspense and genuine twists in tracing the story of how FBI agent John O'Hara tracks down serial killer Nora Sinclair. As the novel opens, beautiful Nora, an interior designer for the very rich, and already wealthy after having killed her first husband for his inheritance, is juggling an engagement to a hedge-fund manager in tony Briarcliff Manor in upstate New York and a marriage to a bestselling author in Boston. She intends to kill both, but chooses the hedge-fund manager first; after she poisons him, enter O'Hara, posing as a sympathetic insurance investigator but secretly working to nab Nora. In time, Nora seduces O'Hara, so his attempt to catch her is compromised by lust; there's also a major subplot involving a suitcase containing documents pointing to more than a billion dollars transferred to Cayman Islands banks, a subplot fully tied into the main plot only near book's end. O'Hara and particularly Nora stand as two of Patterson's most complex characters yet, but the narrative, while nearly impossible to stop reading, doesn't have the emotional pull of the author's Alex Cross novels or some of his Women's Murder Club titles. This is one canny thriller, though, and Patterson's millions of fans will be most pleased. Expect sky-high sales.

The year 2004 saw three books from Patterson, and he's showing no signs of slowing down. In a departure from both the Alex Cross and Women's Murder Club series, Patterson takes on a romance that is a far cry from the sweet love stories he has tried his hand at in the last few years. Nora Sinclair has a gorgeous Connecticut fiance, Connor. She had an equally sexy Boston husband, Jeffrey. But bad things happen to the men Nora gets involved with--her first husband died of a heart attack, and before long Connor meets a similar fate. The FBI is suspicious and sends agent John O'Hara to pose as an insurance investigator who dangles a tantalizing prize in front of Nora: a $1.9 million life-insurance policy on Connor's life, payable to Nora. She is suspicious, but she goes along with John's investigation into Connor's death. John isn't able to dig up much on Nora, but he does find himself in an awkward predicament when he realizes he's attracted to her. Patterson and cowriter Roughan's novel has all the trademarks of a Patterson-only thriller--short, suspenseful chapters; quick, punchy sentences; and a breakneck pace--and it delivers enough adrenaline that fans will likely forgive the novel's occasional implausibility.

Being picky, I spotted a glitch in the logic of Nora Sinclair being able to so easily get away with the murder of Connor. Nora first poisons Connor with the omelet, then finishes him off with the fizz drink. Then, in Chapter 19, she scrapes the remains of the omelet down the disposal, turns on the disposal, and thoroughly washes the plate, fork, and omelet pan. Okay, that’s cool, she’s covering her tracks. But then, in Chapter 20, she tells the investigating police about the omelet she made for Connor and the moment he said he was feeling sick. It would seem to me that any half-decent police officer would want to get a sample of the omelet to see what might have made Connor sick. And if so, then any half-decent police officer would have been suspicious to discover that the omelet had been flushed down the disposal and that someone (Nora was the only one there) had washed the plate, fork, and omelet pan. It’s a glitch, but I let my suspension of disbelief widen a little bit in order to stay engaged.
In one of the chapters we are introduced to a Tourist, who gets hold off a flash drive, which then is open on a Mac. So far so good, but a sentence later it's said the drive was mounted as drive letter E, which can't happen on a Mac as this is a typical Windows functionality. For some reason, I picked up on it right away.
Few other things that didn't quite fit the description was the 11000-square foot mansion of Connor. While this is a big house, I can easily see a wealthy hedge fund manager living in a significantly larger house. Also, the author speaks of Connor's house having a separate wing; now the house in my mind grew to at least double the size as I can't imagine an 11000-square foot property with separate wings. And why is Connor wearing Dockers? Really a wealthy hedge fund manager wearing $30-$40 pants; I don't think so. The choice of cars is also peculiar, Jaguar XJR and Benz SL; neither car has a wow factor. They are kind of average and not exactly head turners.
I really enjoyed the introduction to the book. Really well written. Each chapter is easy to ready and each sentence effortlessly propels the story forward.
I was glad my withers were not continually wrung as why would I pay to be miserable? I hadn't read any of Patterson's books before, but they are defiantly possible holiday reads now.
The plot was a fresh one to me, and the twists were abounding.
Yes, a really fun read.
Tell me a story and keep the pages turning. Honeymoon did that for me.
