Publisher's Summary

Kristin Burns is making her way in New York City. Her photos are being considered at a major Manhattan gallery, she works by day with two wonderful children, and the man of her dreams is almost hers for keeps. But just as everything she's ever wanted is finally within reach, her life changes forever with one murderous nightmare.

Kristin wakes up every morning from the same chilling, unforgettable dream. And suddenly, it's visiting her during the day too. As her life turns stranger by the minute, Kristin is haunted and terrified. Is it all in her head? Or is the nightmare becoming her life? Kristin searches desperately for what's real through the lens of her camera, only knowing two things for sure: that no place is safe and the fate of everyone she loves lies in her hands.

Stay Away

Its a fast read, but that's the only positive I can say about this book. I have read all of Patterson's books and have liked them all -- some more than others, but this one is terrible. Its creepy, the characters aren't likable and it doesn't make sense. I'm surprised Patterson put his name on this one.

Disappointed!

I always look forward to reading a James Patterson book, but I think that the books that he writes all by himself are the best, and I have read or listened to all of his books. This one was a definite disappointment. Frankly, I couldn't wait for it to end. The main character is so unlikeable that you really don't care what happens to her. There wasn't much of a story, either. This is 6 hours of dribble that you should avoid. I'm giving it one star, but it really doesn't deserve that.

Leave it alone! Wait for the next!

I have been hungry for a new James Patterson as Audible does not permit most of his new titles to be sold to customers living in Japan. I bought this one as fast as my fingers could hit the keys. Should have read the reviews! It is depressing and dark! Why did one of my favorite authors permit his name to be put on this? Leave it alone! Not even worthy of one star. Why are we not permitted to give negative ratings?

You've Been Warned (not to buy it)

Not a typical James Patterson. Disappointing and depressing.

WASTED TIME

At the beginning of this section - you asked for a star rating of this book. You do not have what I would like to submit - which is a -Star. I must say that this is the most disappointing book I have ever had. James Patterson is one of mine and my husbands favorite authors. We could absolutely not see any of his work in this book. Clearly he just put his name on the cover to help this author sell his very poor book. I will not be reading any more of this authors - and I will thoroughly investigate any more of Patterson's. Also, the reader was not the best of choices either. It was a very big struggle to get through this book. When you are accustomed to an author - you assume that anything with his name on it is good quality. He usually keeps readers on their toes as you go through the book - this time - it was just so unbelievable and dull. Wish I had read reviews before purchasing. Learned my lesson I guess. Readers beware - belongs in fantasy way out there section.

Who wrote this?

This would qualify as a BAD Dean Koontz book! This is not what I expected from James Patterson. I kept waiting for this book to get better and it didn't happen.
Stay away is a good warning!

Awful narrator

This would probably be a good audiobook if the narrator didn't come across as so insincere. She sounds like an over dramatic bad actress. I'm having trouble listening to it for more than 10-15 minutes at a time and it is ruining the story for me.

Hoping for more

The was the worse James Patterson book I have read. I finished the book only because I was hoping it would get better. But the ending was a dissappointment, it didn't tie together all the things that had happened to the character.

This book is not up to the standards I expect from Patterson. Maybe the coauther wrote most of it?

Not my favorite

I love everything Patterson, but I have to say this was my least favorite. I've never read a bad Patterson. I guess I'm just spoiled from his prior work....Looking forward to Double Cross.
