This is reprint in hardcover of 3 previous bookshots from 2016, 2017, 2018,
I thought when reading the second one that it sounded familiar so I looked at the copyright dates, I think this is a cheap shot at getting paid double for his books, once for each individual print and now this book combined the 3 into one hardback
The description on this website just gives the details of the last story and doesn't mention the fact that it is actually 3 stories
Different than what I expected but very good. Nick is given the ablilty to go back in time by one hour increments to save the life of his wife but each hour puts a new twist on what is really happening until the very end. The end will shock you.
I never read anything from this author before and I might try another one.
What is happening with Patterson? or maybe it's Paetro, but whoever it is this is a terrible book!
It takes places 5 years in the past, really?, I guess they couldn't come up with a more current storyline but had to go backwards and then bring in a person acquitted of war crimes and that is mostly what this book is dealing with, horrible war crimes committed on women and children in Bosnia, I didn't find the story very engaging at all and mostly just boring boring descriptions of food and clothes and interior design, really? There isn't any suspense or thriller about this book
I'm a fan of this series but this one is just kind of dull, it is mostly just police investigation with nothing exciting or thrilling about it, then you have Claire with cancer now and an operation so there is a lot about that and I just didn't find that necessary at all
I read reviews and one main complaint was that Lindsay and Joe leave their 4 yr old daughter alone at night asleep while they walk the dog? really? is that sending a good message to anyone? don't think so!
The storylines are getting dull and boring and way too long to really enjoy Patterson books anymore, I think him and his co-writers need to take a lesson from Chris Carter and learn how to write a really good thriller!
This book is just ho hum, it has so much repeat in it that you can skip pages but the chapters are short (which I like) so you can speed read alot in this book as it covers the same thing over and over
It isn't a new story and you know how it will turn out so there isn't much thrill or surprise-even at the end
This series has about run it's course as the stories just aren't as good anymore
When you read the inside flap you know what this book is about--
I thought it was going to be much better but I stuck with it, it takes over half the book just to get to the main part of the 29 second call, it has a lot of repeat that could've been avoided, the chapters are short and I like that in a book, I got to just a little over half way into the story then I had to start skimming just to get to the parts I wanted to know and skipping the parts that just didn't matter in the telling of the story
I'll try Logan again and see what happens with the writing style.
I can't give this a glowing review, however, it did keep my attention as to how they would get out of this mess
What I didn't like was all the very hot, very detailed, very explicit sex (not necessary unless you like that kind of reading, I skim over it quickly), and the main characters are very unlikable all the way through, they can't talk without using the f word every time they open their mouth, or shouting or yelling at each other all the way through
The main thing I didn't like was it does not tell you in the end the 'why', ok it was a serial killer but there should be more detail than that and it only gives you that 'he is a lunatic' on the loose, but from where etc.
I think another better author could've made a lot more of the storyline than Jewel does, for me it just wasn't the best writing attempt, I'm not a reader of romantic suspense but I don't really know what genre to call this it has a mixture of several
WOW! Along the same lines of Chris Carter's books this is a well written suspense/thriller to the T. One of the best books I've read in a long time and looking forward to the next one (if I can get it, had to get this one through the library).
couldn't get into this one, too much repeat in just the first 100 pages, characters you can't like--a geeky Dad that acts more like a coward and a Mom that acts more like a shrew but the Grandpa is a hero and would be a more likable character even with his 'ghosts' he carries around, but I quit after a little over 100 pages because I just kept waiting and waiting for it to move on and I just lost interest
The first book 'Beneath' was a pretty good book, these are for ages 9-15, but this one? maybe because it took so long for it to come out that I have forgotten the main story so this one just didn't make any sense at all
so this is a case of you have to read the first one then you might want to read this one while it is fresh in your mind or you won't know what is going on
sorry to give it only 1* but I just don't think it deserves more unless you read these two books together
I, too, was unable to finish and in fact just didn't get very far into it, even in the first 30 pages you could tell was going to be a long drawn out disaster, it was going to refer to her Dad every other page or so and it had too much description and unnecessary detail in just those first few pages that I knew I couldn't stick with it-----a pet peeve is unnecessary descriptions and detail not needed and I give up on that book or author.
I have a few English/British writers I like to I don't think La Plante will be one of them.
Very good horror--Tyler High voted to become a 'charter' school and that would mean they were their own bosses, once that is establised the schools policies change drastically and what happens is just plain horror.....
I try to give a book a chance and I got about half way into this one BUT--
Britt is newspaper reporter on the police beat, so you'd think it would be fairly good, she is also half Cuban and this takes place in Florida, so that being mentioned-a lot of it is about Cuba in some way or another which I didn't find interesting at all, too many words in Cuban that is just a distraction and adds nothing to the book, then too many things are going on to where it was just a confusing mess to me.
One minute you're reading the main story (I think) of the missing boys (which was why I got this book from the library), then it flips to another side story for a few pages, then it flips to her personal life and her mother, then it flips to another story about Cuba, then it flips to another side story, then it gets back to the missing boys for a few pages then it just starts over again and again, so there are just too many side stories happening and makes for a mess.
I know this was a 'legal' thriller? thriller? not in my book it isn't, it is a long drawn out 500+ pages of boredom, I made it to page 200 and by that time I was just tired of tiring to keep reading, the story is so slow and unfolds so slow and I get tired of courtroom 'scenes', the personal side of the story about the lawyer didn't keep my interest enough to know what her 'secret' was and I didn't care---I gave up
