Summary

New York’s Lombardo’s Steak House is famous for three reasons – the menu, the clientele, and now the gruesome murder of an infamous mob lawyer. Effortlessly, the assassin slips through the police’s fingers, and his absence sparks a blaze of accusations about who ordered the hit.

Seated at a nearby table, reporter Nick Daniels is conducting a once-in-a-lifetime interview with a legendary baseball bad-boy. Shocked and shaken, he doesn’t realise that he’s accidentally captured a key piece of evidence. Ensnared in the city’s most sensational crime in years, Nick investigates for a story of his own. Back off – or die – is the clear message as he closes in on the facts. Heedless, and perhaps in love, Nick endures humiliation, threats, violence, and worse in a thriller that overturns every expectation and finishes with the kind of flourish only James Patterson knows.

A Let Down

I love James Patterson books, read almost every one, but this one failed to keep my attention at all. I didn't really like the narrator's voice, which I accept is a personal thing, but I also felt that the plot was all over the place. I play these in the car on long journeys and was keen to finish it, to move onto my next book in the library.

Gripping - but .....

Well written story that keeps you on your toes to the end - however ..... the use of random music that drowns out the narrator at various points in the story is an unnecessary distraction to an otherwise gripping tale. Even though I had guessed the 'bad guy' fairly early on in the story, the twists and turns made me change my mind a couple of times - just what I expect from a good novel and it certainly didn't disappoint. It's just a pity about the music!

Great listen

This is a great listen which went all too fast for me. The story is fast paced, interesting and believable. The characters are well developed and complex, particularly the hero. I can imagine Patterson using this as a base to launch a new series and I for one will be waiting eagerly for the next offering.

good

James Patterson is just my favorite! another book that you can't put away until you're done, even though I don't like Mafia stories. The voice of the narrator is very pleasant.
