New York Times bestselling author James Patterson.



In this tag team Thriller Short, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child feature New York City policeman Vincent D’Agosta, who becomes involved with the theft of an ancient Incan sacrificial knife. But before D’Agosta can apprehend the thieves, they meet an untimely death. The particularly gruesome nature of the murders will leave D’Agosta longing for his more conventional villains—heat-packing crackheads, Hummer-driving pimps, two-dollar murderers, subway turnstile jumpers and the assortment of other freaks and bad guys he knows so well from the streets of New York City. His instincts tell him two things for certain: the inexplicable violence of this case has nothing to do with the original heist, and there are going to be more murders.

Would have preferred a more complete ending. This seemed as though it was just getting started and left me hanging. I was disappointed.

This wasn't even long enough to be considered a novella or that interesting to tell the truth.

Not worth the time nor dollar to buy. They should have just thrown this in to it's loyal fans instead of this lame money grab.
