Three pulse-pounding stories from the world's number-one best-selling writer in one book!

The Lawyer Lifeguard with Doug Allyn: Are you the lawyer who got blown up with his girlfriend? Defense lawyer Brian Lord survived the car bomb that killed his fiancée. Out of work and out of his mind, he takes on a lifeguard job at the beach. But there's one wave he'll never see coming....

Disappointed

I really had high hopes for this three story purchase. I can’t even believe I actually paid for it! Quite disappointed. I’m a dyed in the wool Patterson fan but this didn’t quite measure up to my expectations.

Who wrote this book?

I have read numerous books by James Patterson and I am a big fan. I don't think he wrote this one. The story is boring. The performance is boring. The book is so slow that I gave up after two hours. Definitely not paradise. I didn't like the main character who is very ill defined. Don't waste your time listening to this one.

one out of three

The first two stores weren't very good. I wasn't particularly impressed by the narrators either.The last story was well written and the narrators did a good job of portraying the characters.

Surprised at 3 short stories from James Patterson

I am a big fan of the good guys prevailing and the bad guys getting their due. No so here.

Incomplete

I have never given a rating like this to a book written by James Patterson. I did not feel that any of these three books was complete. What was actually written was pretty good, but it felt like he just decided to end the narrative all of a sudden.

Couldn't keep listening

The premise sounded good, but it just didn't hold my interest. The narration also didn't work for me. There was little difference between voices for characters, and the female characters may have been better voiced by a female narrator. Paterson is usually a reliable author, but not this time.

Hated the drs plot

I did not like the characters but I don’t like stories where the good guys are killed and bad guys live to keep going.

James Patterson

I love all his books! Great story with a lot of suspense. The narration is great and easy to follow.
