Kill Me If You Can by James Patterson, Marshall Karp

Matthew Bannon, a poor art student living in New York City, finds a duffel bag filled with diamonds during a chaotic attack at Grand Central Station. Plans for a worry-free life with his gorgeous girlfriend Katherine fill his thoughts--until he realizes that he is being hunted, and that whoever is after him won't stop until they have reclaimed the diamonds and exacted their revenge.

Trailing him is the Ghost, the world's greatest assassin, who has just pulled off his most high-profile hit: killing Walter Zelvas, a top member of the international Diamond Syndicate. There's only one small problem: the diamonds he was supposed to retrieve from Zelvas are missing. Now, the Ghost is on Bannon's trail--but so is a rival assassin who would like nothing more than to make the Ghost disappear forever. From "America's #1 storyteller" (Forbes) comes a high-speed, high-stakes, winner-take-all thrill ride of adrenaline-fueled suspense.

You can't go wrong with a Patterson thriller. I have read all of his books, and as always there are twists and turns. I particularly like that his chapters are short- it makes me want to read more. Perfect for Patterson fans!

Exciting high intrigue and fast paced. Couldn't put it down. One of James Patterson's best. You won't be disappointed.

An innocent, young art student, Matthew Bannon, finds a bag of diamonds after an attack in Grand Central Station in NYC. Not knowing what else to do with them he decided to hang on to them. The Russian Mob had other ideas about those diamonds. This book is packed with suspense. A worthwhile purchase if you love thrills and chills! Madison Pridgen, A member of Between the Lines book club

At first I thought this book was going all to well for the main character, no real death or chase. But there is a twist in this book that i have to say is one of Patterson's (and Marshall Karp's) best. I tried to pace myself to stretch this book out over a few days, but couldn't do it. Finished it in one night and can't wait for the next alex cross book in november.

Reviews Of Unusual Size! Re: Matt Bannon just found a far better way to make money than his fledgling art career - a black bag full of diamonds. That is, if he can find some way to unload them, avoid the international conglomerate and hired killers after him and manage to keep his beautiful girlfriend happy. Outstanding: Frantic, globe trotting fun. Like most Patterson novels, full of action and a quick read and like Karp's novels, stuffed with humor and unique characters. Jett the dog has a cameo! Unacceptable: Though this was a normally sized novel, it felt incredibly short. I read it in a few hours. I'm not sure why every woman in Patterson's novels are six feet tall and beautiful... or nuns... Summary: I was really looking forward to this book, being a fan of both authors, the first time with one of Patterson's co-authored books, it was interesting to try and guess what parts came from which twisted mind. The story was enjoyable with a speedy pace, some great action scenes and more humor than the typical Patterson. (Thanks for that, Marshall!) Recommended! 5/5

I have learned over the years to suspend belief when it comes to reading James Patterson's books. This book was just too much. Absurdity after absurdity with tons of "convenient" events to keep the plot moving. Sure, if you don't worry about that kind of stuff then this is the book for you. For me, this one was just too over the top. Just a fair warning, this book has incest. Not only does it have incest, but extremely descriptive incest. I don't offend easily, but this was just too much. I wish I would have just stopped the book when the incest first appeared. I was hoping it was a one-time incident but I was wrong. Overall, this book was just far too unbelievable for me. I wish James Patterson would just stick to writing books on his own like he used to.

I was unwilling to finish the book after realizing one of the main plot points is a graphic sexual relationship between a father and daughter. Horrible.

This book started out like gangbusters and I couldn't put it down....until the incest. You really didn't need to include garbage like that in what was an excellent book. I stopped reading even though James Patterson has always been one of my favorite authors.

What a great book. Could not put it it in less than 2 days. It's one of the best books I read. Definitely a page turner.

Incest ruined the entire storyline. Book is full of trash. Not really a patterson novel at all. Dialogue poor. Diamonds okay. Two killers one too many. Liked the humor. Characters too slick. Twists too unbelievable. Little omf pattterson in this book. Shallow and cheap. Rgd in abilene.

Love a good patterson read... although this isnt one of my favorites, it was still a page-turner. Love the main character's relationships with his girlfriend and his marine buddies. Was not thrilled about the whole creepy father/daughter thing.

I am truly sorry I purchased, Kill Me, If You Can. If I could, I would return it. I have been a James Patterson fan for years and have read most of his books to date, always looking forward to the next one to come out. I am on page 79 of 305 and have already given it up as REALLY BAD. I don't appreciate the incestuous relationship being described in such detail as well as it even being in your book. I find this beneath you. Please reconsider your values, Mr. Patterson. You have written so many good books, why do you feel that you have to stoop to this filth? I would give it less than one star if I could.

Another pattetson blockbuster. I couldn't put it down. Well worth the money from a longtime fan.

This was book was packed with action from start finish. I wouldn't say this is the greatest book I've read but it was most definitely one of the craziest. I'm only giving this book 3 stars because of the relationship between two of the central characters. Good read nonetheless.

Loved the story. Mr.Patterson kept me on the edge of my seat. I found myself having to make myself put the book down to go to sleep for work the next morning.
