DON'T BLINK by James Patterson & Howard Roughan Review & Giveaway!

YOU BLINK YOU DIE

LITTLE BROWN PUBLISHING 
Release Date September 27, 2010

Reporter Nick Daniels in seated at the famous Lombardo's Restaurant in New York City, getting ready to interview a infamous baseball bad boy. He hasn't given an interview in ten years, since he disappeared before pitching the last game of the World Series.  Every journalist has coveted this interview for years and he chose Nick to tell his story to.

But before the interview can even get started, a man is murdered at a nearby table, right in front of their eyes!!!  The man was a well known mob-lawyer, and the killer escapes quite easily after killing two off duty police officers.

The big question is who ordered the hit, the Italian mafia, the Russian mafia, someone else the man wronged.  While the police are running in circles trying to find the killer, Nick realizes he has a key piece of evidence that lands him right in the middle of the entire case and he doesn't know who he can trust.  Everyone from the mayor to the police and even the media are all working their own angles, and people are dying. If Nick "blinks" and aligns himself with the wrong people, he could be the next victim.


I was conflicted after reading The Postcard Killers, it just was missing something, but let me tell you James Patterson is back in Don't Blink.  

Teaming up with Howard Roughan they have created another true masterpiece.  This book takes you into a wild world so expertly written that once you start reading you will not be able to stop.  

Just a small warning, Chapter 3 of the prologue made me blink, cringe, take a deep breath, pause for a moment, but then I turned the page and never looked back.  

These authors are the jewels of  storytelling when it comes to mystery thrillers.  Don't stop. Don't look back. Don't miss this.  Don't Blink is a must read for all Patterson fans and those who love the thrilling ride of a great suspense novel.
