Nora is beautiful. Nora is rich. Nora would like to marry you. Nora will kill you.

As a young girl, Nora watched her abused mother shoot her father dead. This led to a life-long grudge against all men. Blessed with a fantastic array of feminine attributes -- including being really smart, she has no problem targeting wealthy men.

While the FBI seems to catch on early, leading to quite an interesting, deceptive investigation on their part, it's hard to believe she could have struck twice without a more intense scrutiny. Other than that, we have a tense, fast moving thriller; the reason to read Patterson in the first place. ( )

enjoyed this book very much. It's about a woman serial killer who kills the men she is either engaged or married to get their money. It was interesting to read her view/take on situations from a bad person perspective.

"How does it feel to be desired by every man and envied by every woman? Wonderful. This is the life Nora Sinclair has dreamed about, the life she's worked hard for, the life she will never give up . . ."

At first, this book felt mechanical and cheesy. But it was enthralling all the way through and towards the end, it got REALLY good. I have to say, I enjoyed it. ( )

This was probably the most normal of the James Patterson novels I've read.  The storyline followed an FBI agent chasing a black widow killer.  The mystery was good, but there were none of the Patterson-style twists and turns.  However, it was still a good story and well-written.  I had to get used to the audio-version because they had a male and a female narrator.  Once I got used to the style, it was enjoyable.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446613371, Mass Market Paperback)

Don't give away the ending... Don't give away the beginning. How does it feel to be desired by every man and envied by every woman? Wonderful. This is the life Nora Sinclair has worked hard for, the life she will never give up. She doesn't just attract men, she enthralls them. So why is FBI agent John O'Hara interested in Nora Sinclair? Mysterious things happen to people around her, especially the men. And there is something dangerous about Nora, something that lures O'Hara at the same time that it fills him with fear. Is something dark hidden in the gaps in her past? As O'Hara spends more and more time getting to know her, is he pursuing justice? Or his own fatal obsession?.
