    But way too short! Really very short!
  • Wouldn't expect anything less from Patterson

    This was a great little read for a short story. The outcome was pretty obvious but the action keeps you reading at a fast pace. A typical Patterson page turner.
  • Bam bam bam! More please!

    This story hits the ground running and you can't help but be instantly hooked, the pages fly by in seconds and you're left wanting more! The way Brent sets the scene instantly and hooks you in within a matter of pages makes me excited about what he could do in a whole book! Wow
