Matthew Bannon, a poor art student living in New York City, finds a duffel bag filled with diamonds during a chaotic attack at Grand Central Station. Plans for a worry-free life with his gorgeous girlfriend, Katherine, fill his thoughts - until he realizes that he is being hunted, and that whoever is after him won't stop until they have reclaimed the diamonds and exacted their revenge.
Trailing him is the Ghost, the world's greatest assassin, who has just pulled off his most high-profile hit: killing Walter Zelvas, a top member of the international Diamond Syndicate. There's only one small problem: the diamonds he was supposed to retrieve from Zelvas are missing. Now, the Ghost is on Bannon's trail - but so is a rival assassin who would like nothing more than to make the Ghost disappear forever.
From "America's #1 storyteller" (Forbes) comes a high-speed, high-stakes, winner-take-all thrill ride of adrenaline-fueled suspense.

Best James Patterson Yet!
- Roland C. Hiltscher
Don't Ask Me to Support This Storyline
I think all Patterson fans will be disappointed.
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest
No, and I won't
Yes, of course but not enough to make me swallow this premise. Don't want to give away the twist in this story. I will just say I could not find it in my mind to accept the lead character's profession. Shame on you for asking us to like this person.
I wish Mr. Patterson would write his novels by himself. This is the second novel by a team that I have found repulsive. The Swimsuit was violent and pornographic way beyond Mr. Patterson's normal violent stories.
