'Now You See Her' is a stand alone novel not part of any of Patterson's series.

Whilst it initially appears longer than his normal length at 487 pages, it is actually 487 pages of large font, double spaced with sizeable margins text which in reading time actually felt a little shorter than some of his other books. (This refers to the 2012 Arrow Books edition, ISBN 978-0-099-52532-5).

In terms of the actual plot and writing, it starts firmly and draws you in. You're initially trying to work out who this Nina woman is and what her secret is, and then as things progress you're suddenly wondering what she's gotten into, then rooting for her escape.

The escape part did seem a little far fetched the way she avoids one problem, only to fall into the hands of another problem, then escapes that only to fall yet again into a third problem. Aaaaand then get rescued by the random appearance of a veritable knight in shining armour. I felt this was a little cheesy, thankfully the story picks back up after this short stumble.

More clarity is brought to the short section of stumbling plot towards the end, however I still felt that part of the story somewhat ruined the flow of the book and broke your immersion in the story as you scoffed at how ludicrous it was.

All in all, it's a quick read that will keep you captivated whilst it lasts. It's not going to win any prizes or redefine any literature genres but it is entertaining. ( )

This book was awesome. I read half of it in one day. It was like a good action movie. It was fast-paced and it just kept going until the end. I LOVE his books because they are all like this. They pull you in and won't let you go.

### Review

PRAISE FOR JAMES PATTERSON:

"The prolific Patterson seems unstoppable."
(***USA Today*** )

"James Patterson knows how to sell thrills and suspense in clean, unwavering prose." (***People*** )

"Patterson's novels are sleek entertainment machines, the Porsches of commercial fiction, expertly engineered and lightning fast." (***Publishers Weekly*** )

### Product Description

**The perfect life**

A successful lawyer and loving mother, Nina Bloom would do anything to protect the life she's built in New York--including lying to everyone, even her daughter, about her past. But when an innocent man is framed for murder, she knows that she can't let him pay for the real killer's crimes.

**The perfect lie**

Nina's secret life began 18 years ago. She had looks to die for, a handsome police-officer husband, and a carefree life in Key West. When she learned she was pregnant with their first child, her happiness was almost overwhelming. But Nina's world is shattered when she unearths a terrible secret that causes her to run for her life and change her identity.

**The perfect way to die**

Now, years later, Nina risks everything she's earned to return to Florida and confront the murderous evil she fled. In a story of wrenching suspense, James Patterson gives us his most head-spinning, action-filled story yet--a Hitchcock-like blend of unquenchable drama and pleasure.

Very good James Patterson. The nosing was a little abrupt but the Tory was riveting about Nina a female lawyer who had been married to a cop, Peter who turns out to be a bad guy. ( )
