Publisher's Summary

Art galleries and casinos, mansions and brothels, billionaires and thieves—only New York Times bestselling author James Patterson could create a triple-cross this decadent and suspenseful.

Imagine everyone’s surprise when Carter von Oehson, a sophomore in Dr. Dylan Reinhart’s Abnormal Psychology class, posts on Instagram that he plans to kill himself. 24 hours later and still no one has seen him.

Release the hounds. A massive search ensues. But when Carter’s sailboat rolls in with the tide without him or anyone else on it, the worst seems to be confirmed. He really did it . . . Or did he? 

The one person convinced he’s still alive is his father, Mathias von Oehson, founder and CEO of the world’s largest hedge fund. But what Mathias knows and how he knows it would ultimately reveal a secret so damaging that it would be as if he were committing suicide himself. There’s no way he can go to the police. But there’s still someone he can turn to.

Dylan now finds himself wrapped up in multi-million-dollar secrets and danger and it’s going to take every bit of his wit, and the brilliant and headstrong NYPD Detective, Elizabeth Needham, to stay ahead of both his enemy . . . and his employer.

Disappointing

The change in narrators was key. Edoardo Ballerini did such a good job on the first two of this series, it was hard to get close to the story because of the new narrator. I think I would have liked the story more if Edoardo Ballerini had narrated it

not the best James Patterson

the story was okay but fairly difficult to follow. I love James Patterson's books but this one I have to say would not be in my top 10 for him. the narration was a little bland. just not a gripping story.

Didn’t have the same flow as Instinct

Good story, but I really missed the narrator from Instinct. This narrator has a tendency to pause ever so slightly before “I said”, “she said”, etc. I found it distracting. I also felt like the last 1-2 hours of the story were an after thought.

My Favorite James Patterson?

Lots of twists and turns. Interesting characters and a lot of action. Having the main character a gay married man was different and stories like this will help normalize gay marriage even more.

Terrible narrator

He makes a weird breathy “uh” sound at the end of every sentence. I couldn’t even get passed the second chapter.

Steal

I love James Patterson. His stories always are new and throw you off what’s happening. He keeps you guessong.

not worth it

this is much lower than Patterson standards. you knew where the story was going from the beginning and it took an awful long time to get to the end.
