The title of this book matches the length of time it took to read it. This is a typical recent James Patterson novel that has one to three pages per chapter. I have to admit that the style does keep me turning pages, but I really dislike how the character development is more or less non-existent. The ending was not really surprising and I honestly did not care how the characters ended up. His earlier novels are far superior, but I do want to say that I have read almost all of his books. ( )

This was a great audio book that kept me well occupied during a few days of highway driving. It is well written, and well read.

First words
I knew this was a really terrific idea, if I didn't say so myself, surprising Paul for lunch at his office down on Pearl Street.
Jag visste att det var en strålande idé, om jag får säga det själv, att överraska Paul på hans kontor på Pearl Street för att äta lunch med honom.
