A creepy thriller from bestselling novelist James Patterson. Nanny and amateur photographer, Kristin, is plagued by a horrifying recurring nightmare. In the nightmare she arrives at the aftermath of a shootout where she spies four bodies and a detective, and she can't help but photograph the ghastly scene. The following morning she is greeted with this very same scene as she walks to work. Kristin's life is complicated: her lover Michael is a married man, and the father of the children she looks after. His wife is a nasty, icy woman. But things are set to get worse. She starts seeing and photographing the ghosts of dead people on the streets of New York. Yet in her photographs the bodies appear to be transparent, just like the bodies in her nightmare. Kristin feels like she's going mad, nothing seems to make sense...

Kristin is a photographer, never going anywhere without her camera. To support herself, she is a nanny for two great kids, and her personal life involves a married man. It doesn?t take much reading to realize that something about Kristin is not quite right. This is like being inside the head of a psychotic personality, seeing and feeling the things she does. It?s an alluring mystery, getting deeper and deeper as the pages turn. The ending is a definite surprise. I had a real hard time putting this book down.

JAMES PATTERSON AT HIS BEST
I'VE BEEN DISAPPOINTED IN A FEW OF JAMES PATTERSONS' BOOKS LATELY WITH HIS CO-AUTHORS, BUT THIS ONE REMINDS ME OF "ALONG CAME A SPIDER" AND "KISS THE GIRLS".
THE COVERS LATELY DEPICT SEXY WOMEN, BUT MOST OF HIS LATELY DO. I WAS RELUCTANT TO READ THIS ONE, BUT I'M GLAD I DID.
THE INTENSITY IS BACK AND LIKE USUAL, I CAN'T PUT IT DOWN UNTIL I'VE FINISHED IT IN ONE READING.
THE CHARACTERS ARE RICH IN PERSONALITY AND THE BOOK WILL KEEP YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT AND GUESSING 'TIL THE END.
Publishers Weekly, 2007-10-29 You've Been Warned is aptly titled. Patterson has produced dozens of bestselling thrillers, on his own and more recently with a stable of co-writers. But his latest seriously lacks excitement, and Kadushin doesn't do much to bring the audio version to life. Despite her exotic name and her background as a singer/composer, she sounds very much like a whiny waitress as she reads the mundane story about a supposedly talented photographer who works as a nanny for a wealthy family and falls into a fevered sexual involvement with the husband. Adding to the deja vu withdrawals from the cliche bank are a series of nightmares featuring four body bags. She also sees-and talks with-dead people. Unfortunately, none of it adds up to a worthwhile listening experience. Consider this your warning. Simultaneous release with the Little, Brown hardcover (Reviews, July 30). (Sept.)

Publishers Weekly, 2007-07-30 The Patterson bestseller factory has turned out another high-drama thriller, this time in collaboration with Honeymoon coauthor Roughan. Kristin Burns, a New York City nanny and aspiring photographer, is devoted to the two children under her care, but her desire for their father, Michael Turnbull, leads her to a risky, torrid affair with him. Kristin's anxiety about her guilty secret is heightened by a series of frightening nightmares centering on a vision of four body bags being loaded onto gurneys in front of a prominent Manhattan hotel. Her nightmares also feature recurring encounters with dead people, including her father and the pediatrician who abused her as a child. Kristin's breathless, superficial narration doesn't generate a lot of reader sympathy or interest in figuring out the source of her macabre experiences. (Sept.)
