In Patricia Highsmith's debut novel, we encounter Guy Haines and Charles Anthony Bruno, passengers on the same train. But while Guy is a successful architect in the midst of a divorce, Bruno turns out to be a sadistic psychopath who manipulates Guy into swapping murders with him. As Bruno carries out his twisted plan, Guy is trapped in Highsmith's perilous world - where, under the right circumstances, anybody is capable of murder.

i liked the plot Idea, but the book SUCKED. I hated the narrator Brunos whinney cry baby voice was so annoying I couldnt wait for him to die. Guy was an idiot and the writing was just BAD. I listen too a lot of books and I am sorry but I hated this book. don't waste your money or credit.

The folks in Mike Erikson's small New England town would say he's just your average, everyday guy. And that's exactly how Mike likes it. Sure, the life he's chosen isn't much of a challenge to someone with his unique gifts, but he's content with his quiet and peaceful existence. That is, until an old friend presents him with an irresistible mystery, one that Mike is uniquely qualified to solve.

i loved how it started and it had such potential. Ray Porter was AMAZING as always. he is the very best narrator around. but the story got down right stupid. it was good untill the guy in the cloak that is all i will say so i don't spoil anything but the end was STUPID. I really liked the main character Mike but got really tired of hearing "the ants" overall was disapointed with The Fold

first let me say that i absolutely Love the Joe Ledger series. i REALLY do but This book was to confussing. it seemed to be complicated and weird and just never found its way. The Coma dream sequence was toooooooo long and annoyingly confussing. it was so all over the place that it was hard to follow. there were aspects I liked but overall very disappointed. please do better on the next one. Patient Zero and code Zero were my favorite. as always the narrator was fantastic!!!! if it weren't for him... well thank God for him.

Thank God Marine Mcormick is no longer narrating these books. This narrator was fantastic. Unfortunately the story was too cluttered. James Patterson had too many things jammed into this book. All the plots were good there was just too much next time tone it down sir. If you can get the book cheap get it but don't waist a credit on this. Too all over the place

Ok first off the story was ok. I had a really hard time staying focused on who was who. The reader was so monotone and the same for every person that I got lost. Even the parts that should have been really exciting seemed blah. Overall I liked the concept just not the execution.
If I were you I would skip this and read Jonathan Mayberry. Joe Ledger books are a million times better.

Rico has a problem. The experimental program that gave him the high intelligence and lightning reflexes he needs as a hit man for a galactic crime syndicate left him incapable of internalizing moral imperatives the rest of us take for granted. It takes real effort for him to pass as a normal human being and he avoids it whenever he can. But he has a job he loves, a fast ship, and plenty of cash. So life is good.
