Oh my where to start??????????

This is one of the worst books I've tried to read, I kept trudging along page after page and I got sick and tired of reading about food and how to prepare it, or about the ex-wife and all her 'cute' remarks and how they work together and on and on, then bring in the other restaurant owner wife and amateur lovesick puppies on and on-(barf) then bring in the gangbangers that wear yellow and follow him around so stupid, then bring in the FBI and the terrorist plot

I mean come on, stick with one storyline and develop it into an actual mystery/thriller book, this one is just a messy book with descriptions taking over every page that are just boring and not necessary so take all that out and you'd have about 200 less pages and maybe a better book

Patterson just leaves his co-writers with an outline and I wonder if he ever reads what they write? most of them are not Patterson worthy!

I've stuck with Women's Murder Club and Alex Cross and have added Harriet Blue and the NYPD Red series but the rest of these co-writers are just worthless compared to the 'real' Patterson mind

Yes! I'm ranting and raving----this book is awful!
