Like most of Patterson’s works, it’s a quick read with short chapters that never seem to end with a good place to put the book down - meaning I kept reading until it was over. Also true to the Patterson recipe, there’s an underlying theme of good guy versus bad guy mixed with a whole lot of death, a dash of an interesting setting, and a pinch of bittersweet romance thrown in for good measure.

Set in New York City, protagonist Nick Daniels is a journalist who seems like a likable enough guy, but has a knack for finding trouble. With Nick caught in the middle of a Russian/Italian mafia war, I lost track of how many times he just barely escaped certain death. Good the first few times, but by the end I found myself rolling my eyes and wishing he would at least sprain an ankle to make this all a bit more believable.

But really, who reads Patterson for a dose of reality? You know what you’re getting before you even crack open the book - a page-turner that’s perfect for killing an afternoon.
