Fine in fine dust jacket. In good condition with slight edgewear. Pages clean and unmarked. Sewn binding. Cloth over boards. 311 p. Audience: General/trade. Suspense. How does it feel to be desired by every man and envied by every woman? Wonderful. This is the life Nora Sinclair has dreamed about, the life she's worked hard for, the life she will never give up. When FBI agent John O'Hara first sees her, she seems perfect. She has the looks. The career. The clothes. The wit. The sophistication. The tantalizing sex appeal. The whole extraordinary package-and men fall in line to court her. She doesn't just attract men, she enthralls them. So why is the FBI so interested in Nora Sinclair? Mysterious things keep happening to people around her, especially the men. And there is something dangerous about Nora when Agent O'Hara looks more closely-something that lures him at the same time that it fills him with fear.

I've never read anything by James Patterson before, but I read this one in just one sitting. I didn't get a thing done today. It's his own fault, crafting such an intriguing plot with a femme fatale who is fascinating, pitiful, and scary. A few surprises keep you turning the pages until you get the whole story. Like watching a great movie, you can't leave in the middle.

As James Patterson goes, more great writing. Although I can't say I was not disapointed at the end. It was slightly predictable. Unlike his other books where the reader really has no idea whats about to happen, I found this one was not much of surprise. Upon finishing it I was not as satisfied as his other books, which usually I'm quite impressed with and still left thinking over.

Another Patterson hit! Not many authors can grasp your attention from the first page, but James manages to do so again in this book! After I was into the book, I went back to the first few pagea to reread them again, and I marvelled at his mastery of "hooking" me yet again! He's one of the best authors I've read and I can hardly wait to get another one of his books!
