1.0 out of 5 starsHuh??
Reviewed in the United States on October 30, 2020
I read all of JP’s books. I enjoy the ones that even the critics don’t like. I’m on page 82, and I don’t think I can read anymore. I love mysteries, I don’t love games. This isn’t even fun. I feel like it’s a waste of time and paper. Usually, his chapters leave you wanting to devour the next chapter. You can’t wait to find out what happens next. I do not care what happens. Not at all.
I am an avid reader. I read between 2 and 3 books per week. I have read and enjoyed James Patterson's books whether coauthored or not. This is truly one of the worst books I've ever read by any author. Disjointed, unbelievable, and boring.

I really wish James Patterson would just stick with the main series that have given him such acclaim. The Alex Cross, Michael Bennett, Women's Murder Club are great collaborations and worth the wait. These independent collaborations stories are just not his style, but the other author. I have been really disappointed with character development and story arc. Especially the last few novels we're not even original story lines but regurgitated from news stories and slapped together for a profit. I think I will be more selective in my purchases of collaboration novels of James Patterson.
For the first time, I’m a bit disappointed. Three Women Disappear was difficult to follow. Too much back and forth between characters for me. Come and Get Us just didn’t seem like Patterson, possibly too much of the co-author?
1.0 out of 5 starsVERY DISAPPOINTED IN PATTERSON !!!

As a retired law enforcement professional and attorney when I read books that include criminal procedure matters and constitutional rights that should be afforded to "characters" in the story and the author gets it wrong I want to throw the book across the room!!! This stuff is NOT hard to research, especially for Patterson who should KNOW BETTER. I did NOT throw the book as I was reading it on my kindle. BUT, I stopped reading!! Waste of 15 bucks. James are you getting lazy or perhaps you just don not care to be accurate ?? DON'T BOTHER with this one !!!
I’m not sure how this has so many stars unless the ratings are for Patterson’s books as a whole. This one had very little Patterson input (or editor input either, for that matter) and was extremely disappointing. I agree with what every other one star reviewer said. I love JP’s co-authored books. I read voraciously. In fact, I’d just finished another JP collab the day before. But this was awful. The characterization, plot, technical writing all left something to be desired but my two biggest hang-ups were about Sarah. The diabetes she has (or at least had in the first chapter) is Type 1, not 2. And when she traveled from Florida and through Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and then Texas she was heading WEST not east. At first, I thought she was lying but then in her stream of conscious she still said she was going east. Come on! How did this make it past an editor?!

This book was amazing. It had so many twists and turns. I thought I had it figured out several times, but was so wrong. Each of the women were interesting and very surprising in their own way. The men involved d were a diverse group but they all shared one terrible quality. I highly recommend this book.

Whey does Patterson insist on trying to create new "hero's" when he has a full house of good ones. All who need a good outing. It is obvious why the release was delayed, they got the script mixed up and couldn't sort it out ! Interesting, but won't make the best seller lists. The second story was no better. Sorry, new co-writer needed as well.
5.0 out of 5 starsOut of the ordinary storytelling

I found the construction of this story a bit confusing at first. All of the subjects had chapters written in their own tense, from their own point of view, but it kind of all came together at the end. What I liked about this purchase was the free short story at the end. A bonus book!!

Very disappointed with this book. I read all James Patterson’s book because they’re usually so good but the plot was so far fetched I couldn’t take it seriously, nor was it amusing. The characters were stereotyped and wooden.
