Publisher's Summary

The perfect life....

A successful lawyer and loving mother, Nina Bloom would do anything to protect the life she's built in New York - including lying to everyone, even her daughter, about her past. But when an innocent man is framed for murder, she knows that she can't let him pay for the real killer's crimes.

The perfect lie....

Nina's secret life began 18 years ago. She had looks to die for, a handsome police-officer husband, and a carefree life in Key West. When she learned she was pregnant with their first child, her happiness was almost overwhelming. But Nina's world is shattered when she unearths a terrible secret that causes her to run for her life and change her identity.

The perfect way to die....

Now, years later, Nina risks everything she's earned to return to Florida and confront the murderous evil she fled. In a story of wrenching suspense, James Patterson gives us his most head-spinning, action-filled story yet - a Hitchcock-like blend of unquenchable drama and pleasure.

Now You See Her

I usually stay away from the James Patterson "collaborations" but this one was actually pretty good. A lot of action, sometimes incredible, a lot of twists and turns, I think I missed some clues while listening AT WORK, but overall a good mystery and a good listen. I would and I already have recommended it to friends.

Stop soundtracks NOW

The story was fine, so was the narrator. The background music drove me crazy at the "dramatic" parts. They might as well added a laugh track too

I am DONE with James Patterson

I used to love his stuff. Over the last few years it has gotten harder and harder to get through his stuff (alone or as a co-author). The story line and its twists were over the top. The narrator was terrible. I agree with other reviews she overacted everything, sounded like a high schooler and made every character sound the same. The cheesy music...seriously...what were they thinking. I keep trying his stuff again thinking it will go back to the quality of his OLD Cross novels...but no such luck...it makes me sad.

Disappointing

Without a doubt, this is the worst audiobook I've ever heard. The character development was shallow, the plot unlikely. The dialogue was unimaginative and repetitive. The narration was uninspired. After my initial disappointment with the book, I continued listening because I assumed it had to get better. I was mistaken.

Strap Yourself In! GREAT ROLLER COASTER RIDE!

Just when you think you have it all figured out, it takes another twist & turn. It was hard to get on with life once I downloaded this book. I wanted to listen all day. It took me some time to get used to the music & sound effects but (Elaina Davis) did a pretty good job. Great summer read!!

not at all what I was expecting...

Suspense, detective thrillers are my favorite genre and I usually like James Patterson. This was a disappointment for sure. I kept waiting for the "twists and turns" and "roller coaster" ride other reviewers mentioned and it just didn't happen. They must not have read some of the barn burners I've enjoyed. The plot here was terribly contrived and the scenarios too far fetched...(not to mention that the plot line has been overdone on mediocre made for TV movies for a decade) to be believable. The dialog was juvenile and the characters shallow and totally predictable. I think I'm done with Patterson for a bit..... sorry, James, I really did want to like it, but this one was a let down.

Not so hot

The story is so predictable that I groaned out loud more than a few times. The narrator was lively but the background music was cheesy and annoying. I made it to the end only because I was on a road trip.

Awesome!

What did you love best about Now You See Her?

I loved the twists and turns of the entire story! It kept me spellbound!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Now You See Her?

The twist at the end! I would have never figured that out!

Have you listened to any of Elaina Erika Davis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't, but I would again. She has a very animated voice!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!

Entertaining

Everytime I thought this book would end, it got going in a different direction. I walk around the block (3 miles) and listen to my audio books and I'm constantly entertained and that's all I'm really looking for to keep me walking. I'd never listened to James Patterson and really enjoyed this book and several Alex Cross books too. Keep them coming.

Terrible - read the reviews before you purchase

The publisher writes the following "Patterson gives us his most head-spinning, action-filled story yet - a Hitchcock-like blend of unquenchable drama and pleasure"... and it's just isn't so. Like others have reviewed herein, the wirting, narration, and musical background are just plain aggevating. A novel doesn't have to be true, but unless it is syfy or fantasy, it should feel like it could happen. The activities of the policeman are something out of dusty, broken down. itty-bitty small town in Texas in the 1950s (maybe). Just an annoying read altogether. Wish I would have believed the reviews, but instead I figured this is JAMES PATTERSON, and it's got to be good. I so very wrong!
