The perfect job. Working for an easy-going boss at his luxurious mansion by the sun-kissed beach, watching beautiful women walk by. The perfect girl. Tess - gorgeous, funny, apparently very rich and crazy for him. The perfect score. Five million up for grabs. And to get his share, all he needs to do is trigger three house alarms to throw the cops off the scent of the real robbery. Could things get any better for Ned Kelly? But things don't go according to plan. And when Tess is brutally murdered and the others involved in the robbery are massacred, Ned is the prime suspect. With danger at every twist and turn, he's running for his life. James Patterson skilfully delivers an addictive cocktail of suspense, surprise and tension that will keep you gripped to the very end.

Not Cross but just as good

by Fishman on Apr 15, 2008

This book is not about Alex Cross but it has the same feel. If you like Cross you will like this book.


Crime Pays?

by piafinn on Feb 19, 2008

An unlikely hero, Ned Kelly, lifeguard and pool boy- turned criminal, makes you feel sorry for him because of his bad choices. He teams up with an FBI agent who believes him, they fall in love, and bring down the bad guy. Many twists in the plot make it difficult to guess who's on which side. A satisfying ending, with the message that crime does pay, after all.

A very gripping book that takes you across the country and all over south Florida. The characters draw you into this story and you don't know who should be trusted. If you are a fan of James Patterson, you will be a fan of this book.
