This is an engaging book, and if it sometimes feels as if the protagonist's detective agency has a little too much in the way of special technology, it doesn't unbalance the main story line as the investigators take on the job of proving their boss didn't kill his former fiancée. In addition, there are a number of subplots with the investigators taking on a job for the Mob and trying to stop a movie star make himself look bad.

Mostly good, the various plots were reasonable but the way character points of view cut around was sometimes difficult to follow especially if it was for people on the same investigation. Chapters were also almost painfully short - barely four or five pages in most of the hundred and twenty seven of them! ( )

I LOVE his books. This one held my attention to the very end just like the rest of his books do and they always end not quite the way you were expecting. I am forever a fan of James Patterson.

This book was okay. It focused on characters from the last book. No new players, per se. Each time I reached for it I had to do a little rewind to get myself back into the story. Mixed feelings. 🙁 ( )

I enjoyed this book like I do with every James Patterson book. Now that I'm done with it, I don't remember why the woman was killed. Doesn't make sense to me. Maybe too rushed. Who knows. But a nice quick read. ( )
