    Another Letdown

    Oh my gosh! How bad can it get? This is another poorly written, boring, unbelievable tale written by a once-was-great-author. The quality of Patterson's novels, in my opinion, keep sliding futher and further down. This is by far one of the worst books I have ever read, and have sworn off Patterson for good!

    This Lifeguard Needs Rescuing

    This was a dreadful book. Two major flaws: the main character watches his friends being wheeled out on guerneys and later the FBI agent goes to the murder scene and the dead bodies are still in the house. Also, the phrase 'do you trust me' was used entirely too much. Dumb plot, dumb characters. The plot was a mishmash. When I read this author I don't expect it to be of the Great Books caliber (I enjoyed Beach Road) but this book was boring. Glad I read it in paperback

    Terrible Book

    This book is terrible. The plot and the actions of the characters are unbelievable. If the FBI and police are this stupid, then we are in trouble. While most of Jame Patterson novels are really good, I have noticed a trend. If he is writing with Andrew Gross, the books tend to be terrible. I will never buy another book where Andrew Gross is the author.

    Boring................

    This book was a true letdown. We chose to read it for a Book Club I am in. It was very disappointing and a waste of time and money. I feel truly cheated!!

    Ridiculous

    Absurb storyline, implausible characters. Lifeguard is an insult to any reasonably intelligent person.
