These authors went from writing gripping thrillers such as The Honeymoon and Don't Blink to this throwaway (pardon the pun). The dialogue was over the top similar to a cheap Hollywood film. Sure there was action, something to be expected, but is this crime fiction or fantasy? People get scorched but are not hospitalised? The plot and structure are seriously uninteresting and way too predictable apart from the opening chapters. Worst of all, the novel is factually incorrect. Last time I checked 7/20 was 35% and not 40%. I am bitterly disappointed in these authors. Had I not been exposed to their previous works, especially Patterson, I would have been frightened off. Do not recommend this novel to a first time reader of the genre. To the authors, go back to what made your earlier novels keepsakes.

What disappointed you about Truth or Die?
It is boring, keeps repeating stuff that has very little bearing on the story.
I quit listening to it, and will return it to Audible.
What could James Patterson and Howard Roughan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
I do not believe Patterson really wrote this. I think his helper did most of it.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
I am a bit "gun-shy" about Patterson's books now.
