Maybe it was me and my expectations but not the best book I have listened to from Mr Patterson. A little bit slow in places.

I enjoy James Patterson books. I just did not like this one. I agree with other reviewers - it seemed long and repetitive and was boring. The narrator was very monotone and did not hold my interest.

This was nonfiction but it was long, repetitive and boring. The last hour and a half was not too bad!. The reader spoke in a monotone voice for most of the story. Would not do this again!
