Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Best James Patterson Yet!"

    The story line is so very unusual it took me by surprise after each few minutes of dialogue. Surprises abound as I listened to this very unique story. Really never guessed what was about to happen as I listened. Felt deeply involved as I learned to understand each character brought into the story line. Performance of the narrators were not outstanding but the five stars I allocated to the book were well earned in spite of the performances of the main narrator. (Just seemed a little weak but filled the bill well in that I was not supposed to know who he actually was until later on in the book). Great book!!! Recommend it to all your readers!

    "Don't Ask Me to Support This Storyline"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think all Patterson fans will be disappointed.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Woodman and Jason Culp ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, and I won't


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, of course but not enough to make me swallow this premise. Don't want to give away the twist in this story. I will just say I could not find it in my mind to accept the lead character's profession. Shame on you for asking us to like this person.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish Mr. Patterson would write his novels by himself. This is the second novel by a team that I have found repulsive. The Swimsuit was violent and pornographic way beyond Mr. Patterson's normal violent stories.

    "Ugh...save your credit"

    I never write reviews and I usually don't read them, but if I can save you the pain of listening to this, it's worth a try. The writing is choppy and terribly sappy, it sounds like something a 6th grader has submitted as a project. I'm not sure how Patterson is still selling books, but the last several I have read have been a waste of time. Listening to this one confirmed it for me! And what is it with his calling out name brands of items, does he get a kickback from Creme de la Mer and Boss Hugo??? The narrator tries to give it life, but I think Patterson's lost his mojo!!

    "Patterson continues to give a good story!"

    I am a fan of James Patterson's writing and this was just another example of the twists and turns in this book. If you like mystery, intrigue, action (and there's a bit of 'sappy' stuff) get this book!

    Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    "Loved It! More GHOST Please!!!"

    This was a great book by my favorite author and my favorite narrator. What could be better.

    So many twists and turns throughout and then that ending! Unanswered questions abound. I hope we hear more from the Ghost.

    Story
    "Gratuitous Sex - Can't even finish the book. :("
    Would you try another book from James Patterson and Marshall Karp and/or Jeff Woodman and Jason Culp ?

    James Patterson, yes. While there is usually sex in his stories, it's never been this over-the-top. I'm really disappointed. :(

    These other guys, I don't know.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The premise of the story is really intriguing. The gratuitous sex is the least interesting.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Woodman and Jason Culp ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really. :(

    "A pretty good listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend because it helps the miles go by while driving. All in all a pretty good listen.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes the plot kept me guessing with a nice twist.
