Everyone out of the water. LIFEGUARD. A killer read.

About the Author

James Patterson is the author of numerous international number one bestsellers, including THE BIG BAD WOLF, 3RD DEGREE and his most recent, LONDON BRIDGES. Andrew Gross is a writer who lives in New York.


Beach bum Ned Kelly, a part-time lifeguard, pool guy and errand runner in Palm Beach, Fla., has just scored with beautiful, rich Tess McAuliffe. Life sure is looking up, especially from his days back in chilly South Boston. He's looking forward to another round with Tess, but first he has to help some smalltime hoodlum pals commit a $60-million art heist. It's supposed to be an easy job, but everything goes to hell-the paintings they were after weren't even there-and soon enough his pals are all dead, as is Tess. Ned goes on the run, accused of the murders and the heist as well. He flees back to Boston, but gets caught by cute-as-a-button FBI agent Ellie Shurtleff, assigned to investigate the case for the agency's Art Theft and Fraud department. After some rough stuff, he takes her hostage and in short order they've bonded. Ellie can see that Ned's a good guy who could never have committed the crimes he's charged with, so the two of them join forces to bring down the actual thieves and killers. It's a twisty story that will engage the interest of beach-goers everywhere, whose sun-addled brains will put up with pedestrian writing and an improbable plot just to find out exactly whodunit and why.

Being a lifeguard in Palm Beach, FL, definitely has its perks. Ned Kelly, recently of Boston, lives rent-free in a fantastic home, gets to drive a nice car, and has fallen hard for a beautiful woman who resides in a luxury hotel suite. Ned's idyllic life comes to a sudden end when four of his friends are murdered during an art robbery and the woman is brutally slain in her hotel room. Ned is on the run-from the police, the FBI, and from people who seem determined to kill him. The only people who believe him are an FBI art theft investigator, an old New Zealand buddy, and the rich man who owns the house where Ned lives. Patterson and Gross have come up with an enjoyable thriller, and Billy Campbell is skilled in his presentation of the unique plotting, well-developed characters, and fast-paced action. This will definitely be a hot item in all audio collections.-Joseph L. Carlson, Allan Hancock Coll., Lompoc, CA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
