The greatest female character James Patterson has ever created must vanish or die.
JAMES PATTERSON is one of the best-known and biggest-selling writers of all time. He is the author of some of the most popular series of the past decade - the Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club and Detective Michael Bennett novels - and he has written many other number one bestsellers including romance novels and stand-alone thrillers. He lives in Florida with his wife and son. James is passionate about encouraging children to read. Inspired by his own son who was a reluctant reader, he also writes a range of books specifically for young readers. James has formed a partnership with the National Literacy Trust, an independent, UK-based charity that changes lives through literacy. In 2010, he was voted Author of the Year at the Children's Choice Book Awards in New York.
In Patterson and Ledwidge's bestselling thriller, lawyer Nina Bloom seems to have the perfect life in New York. And she's willing to lie to anyone and everyone to keep it that way and protect herself and her daughter from her dark past. But when an innocent man is accused of murder, Bloom is forced to confront the life she thought she'd left behind. Elaina Erika Davis's narration is crisp and well paced; her tempo accelerates during the book's many suspenseful moments, adding impact to this literary thrill ride. Additionally, Davis provides complex vocal interpretations of the main and supporting characters. Her rendition of Nina adds maturity, sophistication, and emotional depth to the character. And Davis's choice of a chipper-almost jolly-Boston accent for the book's villain makes him all the more monstrous. A Little, Brown hardcover. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
