BookLender review by Jaine Blaize on 2008-01-26 20:42:12

I very rarely write reviews. But after listening to this audiobook I couldn't help myself. Ever read a book that made you mad that you wasted hours of your life reading it? Well this is NOT one of those books. This has got to be one of his most well written, suspenseful, ironic and emotionally charged books yet! Less sappy and more genuine and realistic, this is a story about how one indiscretion can turn a person's whole life around. This is also about what a woman would do for her relationships and how there are times when we really don't know the people in our lives the way we think. This is one of those stories where you will think,Oh my gawd! What ELSE can go wrong? And midway through you'll realize that things can always get worse but there's a reason for everything. Get this book! You won't be sorry. ~ J Blaize*****

I am a big James Patterson fan and I struggled to get through this one. At points I just did not care. Too far fetched, none of the characters did I care about except for her partner.

Fabulous thriller. This book keeps you on the edge all the way from the first to the last page. I started reading early morning and finished by late afternoon!.

There is just enough plot twisting action and occasional loving that made this book a winner in my mind try it
