Overview

What would you do if you faced your wife's killer?
Forgive . . . or get your revenge?

A walk down the aisle, a gorgeous hotel, a drink on the beach . . . death... Newlyweds Ethan and Abigail Breslow are having the time of their lives on an idyllic honeymoon in the Caribbean. After a loving morning in bed, they head into the sauna, where the last thing they see is a pair of eyes-their murderer, watching them die. When the bodies are discovered, FBI Special Agent John O'Hara flies to the Caribbean to investigate. O'Hara is assaulted by the sunny, sparkling world of newlyweds-don't they know there's no such thing as happily ever after? That's what he learned when his wife was brutally killed two years ago. And now her killer is about to be released on parole. As O'Hara gets closer to catching the murderer, all he can think about is the end of his own marriage-and how sweet revenge would taste.

Meet the Author

JAMES PATTERSON is one of the best-known and biggest-selling writers of all time. He is the author of some of the most popular series of the past decade - the Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club and Detective Michael Bennett novels - and he has written many other number one bestsellers including romance novels and stand-alone thrillers. He lives in Florida with his wife and son.



James is passionate about encouraging children to read. Inspired by his own son who was a reluctant reader, he also writes a range of books specifically for young readers. James is a founding partner of Booktrust's Children's Reading Fund in the UK. In 2010, he was voted Author of the Year at the Children's Choice Book Awards in New York.

Biography

James Patterson had been working as a very successful advertising copywriter when he decided to put his Masters degree in English to a somewhat different use. Inspired by bestselling hair-raising thrillers like The Day of the Jackal and The Exorcist, Patterson went to work on his first novel. Published in 1976, The Thomas Berryman Number established him as a writer of tightly constructed mysteries that move forward with the velocity of a bullet. For his startling debut, Patterson was awarded the prestigious Edgar Award for Best First Mystery Novel—an auspicious beginning to one of the most successful careers in publishing.

A string of gripping standalone mysteries followed, but it was the 1992 release of Along Came a Spider that elevated Patterson to superstar status. Introducing Alex Cross, a brilliant black police detective/forensic psychologist, the novel was the first installment in a series of bestselling thrillers that has proved to be a cash cow for the author and his publisher.

Examining Patterson's track record, it's obvious that he believes one good series deserves another…maybe even a third! In 2001, he debuted the Women's Murder Club with 1st to Die, a fast-paced thriller featuring four female crime fighters living in San Francisco—a homicide detective, a medical examiner, an assistant D.A., and a cub reporter. The successful series has continued with other numerically titled installments. Then, spinning off a set of characters from a previous novel (1998's When the Wind Blows), in 2005 he published Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment. Featuring a "flock" of genetically engineered flying children, the novel was a huge hit, especially with teen readers, and spawned a series of vastly popular fantasy adventures.

In addition to continuing his bestselling literary franchises, Patterson has also found time to co-author thrillers with other writers—including Peter de Jonge, Andrew Gross, Maxine Paetro, and Howard Roughan—and has even ventured into romance (Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, Sam's Letters to Jennifer) and children's literature (santaKid). Writing at an astonishing pace, this prolific author has turned himself into a one-man publishing juggernaut, fulfilling his clearly stated ambition to become "the king of the page-turners."

Good To Know

Patterson's Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas was inspired by a diary his wife kept that tracked the development of their toddler son.

Two of Patterson's Alex Cross mysteries (Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls) have been turned into films starring Morgan Freeman; in 2007, a weekly television series premiered, based on the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels.

    Another unputdownable book by Mr. Patterson. I loved reading it.

    Another unputdownable book by Mr. Patterson. I loved reading it. Finished it in one sitting and hoping for more books like this! I'm really waiting for Private L.A. though.. I loved Jack Morgan's character. But John O'hara is not so bad, isn't he? I liked him just as much. And the story itself was what kept me reading. The suspense, thrill, guilt, family drama and the humor inserted in every chapters were the reasons why I just sat on my bed all day holding my Nook and not blinking. No doubt Mr. Patterson is my favorite! With all the other authors he writes with, he creates stories that would make you skip the household chores and wish it were in the big screen. Such a story! Hope there's more to follow. :)

    This book was another grand slam by Patterson/Roughan! You find

    This book was another grand slam by Patterson/Roughan! You find John O'Hara the FBI agent in a bit of anger management as his boss has him seeing a shrink because he cant let go the man that killed his wife while driving drunk and the attorney that got him the minimal sentence. John has 2 sons and misses his wife Susan to no end but thank God for his in-laws who are helping him raise the boys.....also going on is a rash of honeymooners being killed one is the son of a prominent business man who hires john to help him find his son's killer.....then we have Agent Sarah Brubaker with the FBI who is on a hunt to find the man that is strangely killing men named John O'Hara! So you know that Agent O'Hara and Agent Brubaker have to meet right and they do as Sarah is put on to keep Agent O'Hara alive! It is face paced, great story and I couldn't put it down just a few more chapters I said then its over 400+ pages later and I loved it but I love all the books by this team as it was pure ACTION but you didn't get lost once! there was also some lets stop and take a minute to see and smell the roses in it as well. Awesome book, highly recommend. 5*!!! Keep em coming Mr. Patterson.

    Is James Patterson on vacation?

    I think all James Patterson contributed to this book was his name on the cover. This was not the kind of book you can't put down. Readable, but I'll skip his next unless he is the only author.

    Great follow-up

    Honeymoon was one of James Patterson's best thrillers and this was a very worthy sequel to it. I really liked the main characters, John O'Hara and Sarah Brubaker and the hairpin plot twists and turns were exciting as per usual Patterson. Patterson fans and thriller fans in general will be pleased.
