As was with "Private Games" this is yet another James Patterson book that was most definitely NOT written by him in the least remote way possible. I have been a Patterson fan since his very first book, but unfortunately I find myself hanging on only by a thread. I dont know what could of happend to Mr. Patterson? Burned out??? Tired??? Getting too old??? Whatever the case may be, I would prefere that Mr. Patterson stop writting books altogether, than to put out the ones that the only thing he contributes is his name on the cover. Its a shame that he would choose to be remembered by tons of books EVERYONE KNOWS HE DID NOT WRITE as opposed to the GREAT ONES he did write. No more James Patterson books for me. Its just too sad to see Mr. Patterson put out books that are not written by him. I'll remember and cherish the ones he truly put his mind and heart into instead of these last few that only keep the bucks rolling in, but disappoint his true fans. L. Apodaca

I have been a huge James Patterson fan since his first book. I have all his books in hardback, and buy them the week they are released. But this is the last book I'll buy with a James Patterson co-author. I'm very disappointed. James Patterson has sold out. Is it really that imperative to be the most prolific author of your time?

The book did not explain the motives. The book did not set up the characters well... Especially not the husbands. This was the worst James Patterson book I have read. I liked his earlier works.

I would appreciate Patterson returning to writing his own books. This makes the second book I have read with another co-author that has not lived up to my expectations of James Patterson.

This was one of the most difficult books to get through.Premise sounded good,but it was so repetively wordy,it was exhausting. I plodded on to get to the rather lame ending.

It seems that lately mediocrity is the standard by which Patterson (and his team of ghost writers) writes lately. I've always been a HUGE fan of his and have always preordered his new books, sight unseen, because 9 out of 10 times his books were excellent but for the past year or so...... This sucked. Private Games sucked. Kill Me If You Can sucked. I think I'm just gonna stick with the Alex Cross and Women's Murder Club series from now on.... Quantity does NOT equal quality, Mr. Patterson.

I have been a fan of James Patterson for only a few years and have read many of his most recent books and have found some of them really good and some poorly written and this was one of them. The story line very drawn out and BORING. I had the plot figured out only in few chapters in. I'm glad it was a book I borrowed and did not buy because it would have been a total waste of my money.

FAIR 455 pages of words. Skimmed practically 200 pages of prison words--could have been a good book without most of those pages. Not anywhere near expectations of a Patterson book.

This is a lame plot. Yes, it will be a bestseller because of Patterson’s reputation, but, he needs to start writing his own. If he continues with this level of writing he will become a once great author.

I am a huge James Patterson fan! Just like many of you, I buy his book the day it's released and rip right thru it in a day or two. Always easy reads and very captivating! However, I am having a very hard time getting through this one! I thought well maybe it's his co-author but after reading these reviews and realizing that he probably only does write outlines and then pass them off to the co-authors to finish makes perfect sense. This just doesn't feel like a James Patterson book to me. I actually don't think I can even finish it. His books normally grab me from the first page but I'm 50 pages into the book and I just can't get into it. Please James.....let's get back to the Alex Cross series or the Women's Murder Club! Such great reads and I love the characters!!!! Don't disappoint me now!

James Patterson is BACK! I must admit I have not read any JP novels in quite some time. It seemed as if he was going down hill fast from his earlier work. However, it's clear to see that he is definitely back to his old self in this book. From start to finish it had me on the edge of my seat. I was intriqued, outraged, nervous, the entire time! Just the way I like it when i read a great book! Two thumbs up, and welcome back Mr. Patterson!

So James.....when will come out with a book that is no so predictable/farse......whatever happened to good ole Kyle Craig? Sorry not happy with this.

I am a diehard JP fan. That being said.... I love his novels for their no nonsense, straight forward, totally addictive, cannot put-it-down style. I can usually finish one in a week and I only read at work on break and on my 30 minute lunch. This one is way too wordy and gone are the short chapters that I love! I am not a big fan of digression in a novel, especially in a mystery novel. I will not abandon JP for one novel, but I hope this co-author takes constructive criticism to heart.

This is one of the best books that James Patterson has co-authored. It is so good that I couldn't stop reading it, so I read at home and I usually just read on my commute to and from work only.

I am also an avid James Patterson fan...have bought and enjoyed his books for years. However, the books such as this where he clearly is not the author but "lends" his name are not good books. This is the last book that I will purchase that was co-authored by someone else...I want genuine James Patterson written books.

Disappointed. The plot was not clean and the characters not well developed. It also rambled a little bit, unlike a normal James Patterson book.

I've only read the B&N free preview -- was already reading another book. I'm planning to order it now, and get right back into it!

This was an okay read for me but cannot say that it was the best read ever. I typically enjoy James Patterson's books but maybe I am so used to the Alex Cross books that this book wasn't for me. There was too much going on and too much that was never explained. Before Winnie killed herself we needed to know more about her affair with the prime minister and about exactly what happened after the orgy. Abbie's escape from prison was when the book really got good but the entire book was anticlimatic since you knew from the beginning that the husbands were involved.

James Patterson needs to stop lending his name to books. This was not up to par with a book of his.

Not what I'm used to. I want to go on a "vacation" when I read Patterson. Obviously missed my destination because I was quite disappointed in this book.

I used to love and recommend James Patterson's books, but this was absolutely horrible. I skipped most of the prison chapters (and there were lots of them), very boring. Hope it gets better soon or I might not even finish it. Don't think I'll be ordering any more James Patterson' s books

This has to be one of the best by James Patterson. There was suspense, intrigue and love. Being accused of something you didn't do, the trial and her terrible time in prison. Abbie was a remarkable woman (character). I'm never disappointed in anything by this remarkable author! Kudos to you Mr. Patterson, you've done it again!!

Way too long...drudging and slow..not Patterson's best...
