Overall enjoyed it, some parts could have been eliminated because they seemed to make the story drag on. Didn't care for the ending, or the lack thereof. Looking forward to the tv series, especially since rumored to be better than the book. Read full review

User Review  - rogclark - LibraryThing

This is easily the worst book I have read for a long time, possibly ever. I am amazed that I persevered with it to the end. It has no redeeming features. This is my first and last James Patterson novel. Read full review
