A bit long & drawn out, but fairly good

This was my first James Patterson book. It seemed to go into too much detail at times & not enough at others. The narrator's voice practically lulled me to sleep. 12+ hours is about 6 hours too much. All in all, the story was good & suspenseful & the ending rather surprised me.
