When a young investment banker dies of baffling causes, FBI agent John O'Hara immediately suspects the only witness, the banker's alluring and mysterious fiance. Nora Sinclair is a beautiful decorator who expects the best, and will do anything to get it. Agent O'Hara keeps closing in, but the stronger his case, the less he knows whether he's pursuing justice or his own fatal obsession. In a novel so compelling it reads like a collaboration with Alfred Hitchcock, James Patterson unveils surprise after surprise that will keep readers guessing until the last deadly kiss.

"This is one canny thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
"The authors' use of plot twists and red herrings continues to the end of the story, and that, combined with Campbell and Davis's skill, keeps listeners on edge until the last word." (AudioFile)
I enjoyed the story, however, I prefer to listen to one narrator. I prefer to hear someone read the book, rather than listen to an attempt to make it a dramatic production. Also, the music that is added at times is very distracting and sometimes rather corny.
There were some interesting twists and turns. I really did enjoy the book.
It is a good beach read. I would recommend it.
Yes, I would recommend it to a friend! It was recommended to me by my grandson who is 21. I could not imagine that he read a book entitled Honeymoon until I saw that it was a James Patterson novel. I am a big fan of Alex Cross but I'm a little apprehensive about some of the Patterson novels with co-authors. Honeymoon is not exactly 'action packed' but it really held my interest--I read it very quickly, and as soon as I finished this one, I was downloading Second Honeymoon. I actually liked Second Honeymoon better and I'm looking forward to the next Patterson/Roughan novel.
Even though she was a true black widow, it was hard not to like Nora. But, all in all you gotta' love Olivia. What a character!
I actually enjoyed the duel voices. So many reviewers write that they don't care for the 'acting' of the characters but I like them and I think they bring a new dimension to audible books.
Possibly Nora's relationship and kindness toward her mother. The truth is slow to be revealed so it was surprising when Nora whispered to her mother that she loved her.
A real easy read and moves along very quickly. If you like this one, you will love the next book! I might have given this one 5 stars but I'm saving that fifth star for my review of Second Honeymoon.
Yes. I could enjoy it many times, because when I listened to it the first time I was driving acoss Virginia and Kentucky and I missed several twists of the story. I always enjoy listening to a tape or CD a second time to pick up the things I missed the first time.
Yes. The end was really a great shot, since our hero was not to blame, but justice will out at the end.
It is hard to choose which was better. Both were exceptional.

This story gave me chills!!!! Brought me in a differnt world....as if I was there....like a fly on the wall....watching ...feeling....smelling....and tasteing...felt my heart racing and felt it beating out of my chest!!!! Everyone!!! You need to get this book!!! James Patterson you are #1!!!!
good listen and some nice twists. I thought the ending was not where I would have liked the story to go, somewhat predictable. liked the character of the main guy - nicely done. would have liked to see a little more depth about the lady killer, but on the whole a really enjoyable book.
I broke down and bought this book because of the reviews elsewhere. I'd have given it a higher rating except that the language was so foul. What a disappointment that such an imaginative storyteller could lack such creativity in his choice of words, especially from the female characters. I won't buy another Patterson novel again.
