I started out with James Patterson with "Cross" and "Double Cross", both of which I liked a lot. Then, I read a review here from a woman who said that this was the best of Patterson's books and I have to say, this one is head and shoulders better than the aforementioned. I am a screenwriter and I must say, the dialogue rings much truer in this book and the characters are less stilted than those in Cross and D. Cross, where women just read like a man writing a man and placing a woman's name on the character. I don't know what kind of women that Patterson knows personally, but he can't write females in the first two books worth a lick - they just sound phony. That being said, his plots always keep you turning pages.

Being a Patterson fan, I was disappointed in this book. Everything from character development to plot to actions of the characters are not believable making the story a far fetched knockoff of some of Patterson's other works. It feels like he wrote this book as a Quickie without much thought as to what makes his work good. Sometimes, Quickies are a good thing...not this time.
