    This fast paced novel co-written by James Patterson and Brendan DuBois was indicative of other Patterson novels I have read in that the key characters were quickly introduced to the reader and their specific roles and circumstances established promptly so that the narrative could rapidly unfold. Having previously read ‘The President is Missing’, I was immediately drawn to this account set as it was in Washington DC, a location I had recently visited. Grace Tuçker, the wife of the American Presid This fast paced novel co-written by James Patterson and Brendan DuBois was indicative of other Patterson novels I have read in that the key characters were quickly introduced to the reader and their specific roles and circumstances established promptly so that the narrative could rapidly unfold. Having previously read ‘The President is Missing’, I was immediately drawn to this account set as it was in Washington DC, a location I had recently visited. Grace Tuçker, the wife of the American President, was central to the storyline and somewhat of an enigma until the later developments emerged in terms of her ‘plan’ to escape an 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 Goodreads needs to have a more precise rating system that enables options such as 3.5 rather than 3 or 4.

    Another strong political thriller by JP. Quite a few twists and turns will keep you reading until the end.

    I thought that this might be just a little as good as The President is Missing, but unfortunately not. Interesting enough for a low commitment read but left me a bit meh.

    Another good Patterson novel. Not quite the ending I expected, but a good one nonetheless.

    Ren tjubang. Patterson kan i den grad sit håndværk. Det er ikke stor kunst, men som et se et virkelig velopbygget afsnit af blacklist eller lignende. Man er godt underholdt i genren.
