Publisher's Summary

From the world's number one best-selling writer - three pulse-pounding novels in one book!

The Housewife with Sam Hawken: Maggie Denning is a former chief detective adjusting to a quiet life in the suburbs with her family. But when the woman next door is found brutally murdered, Maggie starts investigating - and everyone's a suspect. Even her own husband.

This is the last "James Patterson" book I will waste my time on

James Patterson is one of those authors that I've read so much of that I will automatically buy any of his new releases. Ive been increasingly disappointed in the past few years, but this collection was by far the worst. I can only imagine his collaborators actually write the horrible drivel passing as "literature" and for some reason he is willing to put his name on it.

Plot lines are simple, unoriginal, and poorly developed. Stereotypical characters do the obvious yet unbelievable actions you'd expect from any junk mystery novel.

Don't waste your time and money, or else have a lobotomy before listening!

The Moores are missing

What did you like best about The Moores Are Missing? What did you like least?

It is a 3 short story. Not the typical Patterson that I like to listen to.

Was The Moores Are Missing worth the listening time?

I was able to listen to the entire audiobbook although I did not enjoy it.

Don't bother

These stories are terrible. I used to love Patterson so this was a huge let down. So predictable and bland. Not worth the time

The story MAY have been good...

...but the tedious narration was too distracting! I have read many of his books and enjoyed them-just don't get the narration and you'll be fine. Will update the review when I read the physical book.

Three tales of differing genre and quality

The Moores Are Missing should be missed. It is all resolved too quickly and easily. The reason they are missing isn't even interesting. Skip that one.

The Housewife is more interesting with mild porn, but still predictable. There are a couple minor surprises but not great ones. It will make you sad.

Absolute Zero is totally out of the Patterson genre. It's a Special Forces, Ranger, Delta, Spetsnaz, Seal bloody narco-sex-gun-trafficking sort of story. I liked this one the best.

last story only one worth time

these 1st 2 stories were not to the caliber I'm used to from Patterson. I did enjoy last one most and 1st one second most. thought the middle one was poorly written-- breezily and dizzily???? too many adjectives. lazy writing
please be sure your narrators know how to pronounce words like Alarm is not pronounced A-lar-m!!!

Narration Peaks Engagement

1st book was read at an almost monotone level! Not enjoyable. Other 2 books picked up and allowed me to stick around until the end! Overall...not my favorite by far!

2 good 1 not

The first and second story were great, I really enjoyed them. The third story I just couldn’t get into and didn’t end up listening to the whole thing. Take that for what it’s worth.
