Format: Hardcover
I have read a number of James Patterson and I would rate this among the books I will not read again! If any part of this was written by J Patterson I would be shocked. The story line was not well thought out, had a lot of inconsistencies and seemed amateurish. I was not impressed at all and would not recommend it.

I wanted to hate this book. How dare James Patterson and company: A book every two weeks! But I didn't hate it. There actually was a lot of adrenaline experienced while reading it. Having just come to the end two minutes ago, I can't say that a lot of the things in the book were believable and I'm not sure what I can say about the writing style ... But the thing with putting books out every two weeks is there are many from this author (and company) to pick from.

Format: Hardcover
My daughter had highly recommended this book, and I confess that I had reservations, since so many of Patterson's recent literary ventures had been disappointing. Still, I gave it a whirl and could not put it down. It was a wild, thrilling, fast paced action book with a myriad of twist and turns that literally take the reader's breath away. I was riveted from the get-go.

That being said, the characters are one dimensional and many are downright unlikable. The reader has to suspend some disbelief, but it is worth it, as the plot is so diabolically clever. It is a totally plot driven book and fiendishly imaginative. It is also a quick, easy read.

When Lauren Stillman sees her beloved husband, Paul, with another woman, she draws a conclusion that would set her on a path from which there would be no return. She sets out to have an affair of her own, a quickie, only to have it all go awry, when she witnesses an unbelievable and deadly act. From that moment on, Lauren's life will never be the same.

This book, with all its wild twist and turns, will keep the reader riveted to its pages. Truly suspenseful, it is a thriller that pulls out all the stops and provides a wild, crazy, rollercoaster of a ride. I read this book in one sitting, as I could not stop reading it, compulsively turning the pages until the very end. The book is a thriller in every sense of the word.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
What I liked:
It moved very quickly, it was suspenseful, twisted and turned albeit a little predictably.
What I wasn't crazy about: it felt too short and segmented in parts as though it needed more information, but then that's what kept me reading!
4 out of 5 for being a fun nighttime-before-bed read, not a great work of literature.

I enjoyed reading this book a lot. I needed just 1 day, it's fast and thrilling.
