This is my first foray into reading a James Patterson novel. It certainly won't be my last! I loved the fast pace of the book with so much going on. I was hooked from page 1. You cannot beat a good dose of escapism. I liked Jack Morgan and hope he turns up in future books in the series and not just as a cameo. Mr Patterson is a good old fashioned story teller along the lines of Nora Roberts. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
