I have read other James Patterson books but this is nothing like them. The plot is implausable and the prose is stilted. The characters are also unbelievable. I am continually disapointed with good authors who lend their names to aspiring authors who need to first write material of quality that will stand on it's own without being propped. Don''t bother reading this because you will surely be disapointed.
This would have to be the worst book I have ever read. It is not even plausble!
Got so annoyed with this one, listened for less than an hour, and it was all i could take. A sinking boat, heroine on her way topsides to get rescue equipment, yet stops for lengthy introspection and considers hugging her children etc etc with water lapping at her feet. Unrealistic and very poor. The dialog is cringeworthy. Cant believe written by James Patterson.

In two years of enjoying Audible books this is the poorest. The actual storyline is ok and the technique of two narrators also works well but what lets the book down is the dialogue. It is so cliche ridden that you can actually guess what the next line is going to be in 9 out of 10 cases! I have read other books by the same author and have never been as conscious of anything quite so crass before. This book will make me think twice about reading or listening to anything by the same author again.
