Publisher's summary

New York's Lombardo's Steak House is famous for three reasons: the menu, the clientele, and now, the gruesome murder of an infamous mob lawyer. Effortlessly, the assassin slips through the police's fingers, and his absence sparks a blaze of accusations about who ordered the hit.

Seated at a nearby table, reporter Nick Daniels is conducting a once-in-a-lifetime interview with a legendary baseball bad-boy. Shocked and shaken, he doesn't realize that he's accidentally captured a key piece of evidence. Ensnared in the city's most sensational crime in years, Nick investigates for a story of his own. Back off - or die - is the clear message as he closes in on the facts. Heedless, and perhaps in love, Nick endures humiliation, threats, violence, and worse in a thriller that overturns every expectation and finishes with the kind of flourish only James Patterson knows.

James patterson Most Boring Story

What is going on whit James Patterson ,you need to write less book and better writing .It feel that you did not write the book .I think that Howard Roughan wrote this book and had your name to sell it!! That is why you are not on the top 10 whit audible and not even on the top 50 on amazon.

Scary, exciting, great detail

"Don't Blink" mixes the right amounts of confusion, human nature, and the games people play. A little too gross for me at times, but Patterson & Roughan keep the story moving. The non-stop disasters get to be exhausting, but overall, a great listen.

among one of the better Patterson collaborations

I would place this story among the better "Patterson/little known writer" collaborations. Just the right combination of narration, story plot, suspense, romance, politics, humanism, violence and victories. I did not think that this story was boring at all. Some of the female characters could have been better developed...unfortunately they were more or less accessories to move the men along in the story. Overall very good story. You will like it if you are Patterson fan and follower. Looking forward to reading more Nick Daniels stories.

Don't Blink

As is typical this James Patterson book was great and hard to stop listening to all at one time. Look forward to more of his books on audible.

Couldn't follow.

This was hard to follow because the narrator didn't change his voice for different characters & there were a couple characters that talk in 1st person.

Twists and Turns Galore!

I couldn't stop listening to this story. The twists and turns kept me on my toes. I enjoy a book that doesn't have the typical storyline and this one definitely kept me guessing. The narrator was good. The story was good. The timing and plot were good. I'd recommend this to any one of my murder mystery friends.

Don't waste your time or credit

Story was dull and the quick wrap up at the end was eye rolling.
Don't waste your time & money on this book.
