I liked this book, the story was well written, to the point, and not filled with a bunch of uneeded wording.
Strong enough start, drags in the middle and then ends as if someone realized they had to wrap it up in twenty pages or less. All too rapid and unsatisfying an ending for a serious bad guy they spent a complete prior book building that ended in an unpublicized cliffhanger. So really two successive poor reads. Seems to have lost the fine edge that proved it could be both compelling and humorous in the prior books of the Michael Bennett series.
This book was a total waste of my money. I finished it but was completely disappointed in it. I have disregarded some recent poor reviews of James Patterson's latest books, but I won't make that mistake again. Mr. Patterson, you should be embarrassed!
Riveting! Exciting! Interspersed with humor and wit that make it fun to read. Couldn't put it down.
Dialogue was sophomoric plot simplistic efforts at humor weak .
Pretext to get protagonist involved thin thin thin
Patterson motivated by money outing his name on this drivel written by a nobody
Good Job Mr. Patterson. Another outstanding book. As good or better than anything previous.
Nonstop exciting book! Love it!
Fro one-half of the story this was one of the best books I'd read in a long time. Great read! Unfortunately the second-half was almost horrible.
Moves along at an expected pace. Very thin on substantive details, which makes the action 2-dimensional and occasionally unbelievable. As in: cannot be believed because of poor craftsmanship.
The repeated, treacly cheeriness of the main characters started making me root for the wrong side.
Almost satisfying. Not a hot mess.
But not good, either.
