full of thrills and political intrigue As US President Harrison Tucker makes his final push for re election, he finds himself in an awkward position Caught leaving an Atlanta hotel with his mistress, Tucker scrambles to save his reputation, but is unable to keep media reports from reaching First Lady Grace Tucker Understandably upset, the First Lady excuses herself and leaves the White House While the news is troubling, it s just another hurdle that Secret Service Agent Sally Grissom has to face Heading up the Presidential Protective Detail, Grissom will have to keep POTUS safe as he tries to patch his reputation She s tossed a curveball soon thereafter, when a senior member of the First Lady s detail calls to say that she s gone off the grid, having slipped past those charged with protecting her Grissom rushes to the scene of where she was last seen, hoping that this is just the First Lady trying to exert some freedom However, things take a turn for the worse when a note appears in the First Lady s handwriting Has her disappearance been orchestrated and is she being held against her will Meanwhile the president s Chief of Staff is making calculated moves of his own to ensure the disappearance news does not derail an already fragile situation He cannot have anything go against his plans or it could spell electoral disaster With a mercenary slinking around in the background, Grissom s actions begin to have dire consequences and new evidence push the Secret Service to the brink as they seek to do what s needed before media outlets use the disappearance as new fodder for the next news cycle Patterson and DuBois do a great job with this standalone novel, which keeps the reader s attention until the story s climactic ending Recommended for those who can appreciate Patterson s stronger collaborative efforts James Patterson collaborations can be hit and miss, which is additionally troublesome as the market is supersaturated with the author s name on bookstands at any given moment However, Brendan DuBois can usually be counted upon to help shape novels in a productive manner and keep Patterson on task This novel mixes the fast pace of political thrills with the mystery of a missing central actor Sally Grissom proves to be a decent protagonist, mixing her grit on the job with having to balance being a single mother at home Still in the midst of marital disintegration, Grissom must try to keep her daughter s respect while not letting her personal life distract her from the job at hand As this is a standalone, the authors must sell Grissom in short order so that the reader does not lose interest in her, which appears to be done effectively throughout Many of the secondary characters prove useful storylines to keep the novel moving forward From the search for the First Lady to those who want Grissom and her team away from the action, the authors can easily use a number of characters to add flavour to a rich narrative The story is strong and well paced, with Patterson s trademark quick chapters that keep the plot from losing momentum Patterson and DuBois have a great way of mixing first and third person narratives to show an entire story from all perspectives While I do bemoan the excessive number of books Patterson churns out, this is one with a silver lining that I feel would be perfect for those who need a few hours to escape their busy lives.Kudos, Messrs Patterson and DuBois, for a successful novel I am happy I took the time to enjoy this piece and look forward to another collaborative effort Like hate the review

unhappy relationship and an unfulfilling role as the First Lady, however or whatever that entailed.At times, it was hard to keep track of certain characters motives but overall this did not affect the enjoyment or understanding of the diverse events that underpin this novel The Patterson format is becoming very familiar to me and it is apparent to me why his writing is popular with many readers who want novels that are compelling in terms of fast moving storyline, constant action and sustained suspense It is also a good example of why needs to have a precise rating system that enables options

First Lady would have been in that cabin and not found She was only 3 miles upstream The horse farm had a shed full of illegal immigrants and despite the huge search party going on no one checked the shed Come on The secret service agents sitting in the car and never even glanced around when the assassin drove past The assassin camping out by the stream watching what was going on and no one found her The logic for having the First Lady killed made no sense to me Surely if anything it would make the public hate the President for driving his wife to suicide with his affair Agent Grissom putting her child in danger multiple times, leaving her home alone and then bringing the First Lady to the same house she was staying in despite there being a hit out on her Standing at her sisters front door with the First Lady and waving to a woman going past in a Lexus She was meant to be hiding the First Lady The way AG spoke to her team with such a lack of respect annoyed me I think it was to make us see her as a strong woman but she was just rude The way she let Scotty off the hook at the end She was nicer to him in that exchange than she was when he was helping her during the rest of the book Lots of the reviewers mention the twist they didn t see coming I m feeling I must be missing something as I though it was obvious from halfway in that she had disappeared by herself What happened to the premise that the US don t negotiate with terrorists Could the President really hand over that much money so fast with no permission And what was the explanation for her rescue How did he explain away the money how did the assassin escape from the hospital Especially with her injuries AG didn t die because she was shielded by her coat and scarf I actually laughed out loud at that bit I m still trying to figure out how the assassin opened the heavily secured apartment door with a bit of sticky tape flag Like see review Jan 15, 2019 Jennifer rated it really liked it Shelves thriller, male
