Wow! What an awesome thrill ride this book has turned out to be. After reading the first few chapters I was hooked. A few days later and I was finished and thirsty for more. The main character in this book was definitely full of surprises. I recommend you put this on your reading list whether you are a fan of James Patterson or not. The book starts in New York and takes you on an aventure to other countries and back again. The characters will keep you on edge. Story line is believable and so are the characters. Very well written, with a great plots and lots of suspense. Sex, betrayal, mystery, misery, murder, and adventure. Need I say more? — Norman LaVelle
Matthew Bannon, a poor art student living in New York City, finds a duffel bag filled with diamonds during a chaotic attack at Grand Central Station. Plans for a worry-free life with his gorgeous girlfriend Katherine fill his thoughts—until he realizes that he is being hunted, and that whoever is after him won’t stop until they have reclaimed the diamonds and exacted their revenge.
Trailing him is the Ghost, the world’s greatest assassin, who has just pulled off his most high-profile hit: killing Walter Zelvas, a top member of the international Diamond Syndicate. There’s only one small problem: the diamonds he was supposed to retrieve from Zelvas are missing. Now, the Ghost is on Bannon’s trail—but so is a rival assassin who would like nothing more than to make the Ghost disappear forever. From “America’s #1 storyteller” (Forbes) comes a high-speed, high-stakes, winner-take-all thrill ride of adrenaline-fueled suspense.
