Don't Blink - James Patterson

Don't Blink - James Patterson

Dont Blink is a portmanteau novel, jointly credited to James Patterson and (in smaller ... more

font on the jacket) the lesser-known Howard
Roughan. And while Patterson has long been one of
the most worlds popular thriller writers, there
are those who have expressed doubts about his
joint writing ventures with other writers such as
Andrew Gross. Surely, they argued, we want our
Patterson unadulterated, not filtered through the
pen of another author? However, the books by
Patterson and his various partners have largely
succeeded in hitting the bestseller charts as
firmly as Paterson's solo efforts; and its more
than likely that this new book will repeat that
success.This is a Mafia epic, and will inevitably
invite comparison with Mario Puzos The Godfather,
though its a different approach to the subject.
While Lombardos Steak House in New York is
celebrated for its food, its also notorious for a
less salubrious reason: the savage killing of a
corrupt lawyer for the Organisation. The killer
escapes without leaving a trace, and speculation
about his possible employer are rife. At the
murder, reporter Nick Daniels was present,
interviewing a sports personality at another
table. Without realising it, Nick is the recipient
of an important piece of information -- but as he
becomes further embroiled in the crime and its
investigation, he find his own life is on the line
-- and the fact that he has fallen in love further
complicates an already fraught situation.While
some James Patterson fans might have preferred
another Alex Cross novel (or something in one of
Patterson's alternate Womens Murder Club series),
there's no denying that Patterson and his less
celebrated co-writer (who may have done most of
the heavy lifting here) do ensure that we keep
turning the pages very swiftly. Patterson's
famously cut-to the bone, super-brief chapters are
well in evidence, further ensuring that momentum
is the name of the game here. --Barry Forshaw

Product Information for "Don't Blink - James Patterson" »

Manufacturer's product description

New York's Lombardo's Steak House is famous for three reasons: the menu, the clientele, and now the gruesome murder of an infamous mob lawyer. Effortlessly, the assassin slips through the police's fingers, and his absence sparks a blaze of accusations about who ordered the hit. Seated at a nearby table, reporter Nick Daniels is conducting a once-in-a-lifetime interview with a legendary baseball bad-boy. Shocked and shaken, he doesn't realise that he's accidentally captured a key piece of evidence. Ensnared in the city's most sensational crime in years, Nick investigates for a story of his own. Back off or die is the clear message as he closes in on the facts. Heedless, and perhaps in love, Nick endures humiliation, threats, violence, and worse in a thriller that overturns every expectation and finishes with the kind of flourish only James Patterson knows.
