Book Description

While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call: the elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum. Near the body, police have found a baffling cipher. While working to solve the enigmatic riddle, Langdon is stunned to discover it leads to a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci -- clues visible for all to see -- yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

Langdon joins forces with a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, and learns the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion -- an actual secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Botticelli, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci, among others.

In a breathless race through Paris, London, and beyond, Langdon and Neveu match wits with a faceless powerbroker who seems to anticipate their every move. Unless Langdon and Neveu can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle in time, the Priory's ancient secret -- and an explosive historical truth -- will be lost forever.

THE DA VINCI CODE heralds the arrival of a new breed of lightning-paced, intelligent thriller…utterly unpredictable right up to its stunning conclusion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Much More Than A Super Suspense Thriller!!
Once I began this extraordinary book, I could not put it down. "The Da Vinci Code" is so much more than a gripping suspense thriller. Dan Brown takes us beyond the main plot and leads us on a quest for the Holy Grail - a Grail totally unlike anything we have been taught to believe. With his impeccable research, Mr. Brown introduces us to aspects and interpretations of Western history and Christianity that I, for one, had never known existed...or even thought about. I found myself, unwillingly, leaving the novel, and time and time again, going online to research Brown's research - only to find a new world of historic possibilities opening up for me. And my quest for knowledge and the answers to questions that the book poses, paralleled, in a sense, the quest of the book's main characters. What a trip! What a read!

A violent murder is committed in the Louvre Museum. The museum's chief curator, who is also the head of a remarkable secret society that has existed since the death of Christ, is found dead and gruesomely positioned on the floor near The Mona Lisa. In the minutes before he died, this very complex man was able to leave clues for his daughter to follow. The daughter, a brilliant cryptographer, along with a famed US symbologist, follow her father's codes and leads, hoping that he will, through his death, finally tell her what he wanted to confide in her while he lived. The secret society included members such as: Leonardo Da Vinci, Boticelli, Gallileo, Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, Jean Cocteau, etc. These folks really Did belong to this society, which Really existed! This is when I first began my online search.

The mystery, or mysteries, take us through England, France and far back in time. We learn about the secret of the Knights Templar, and the symbolism in many of the world's most treasured paintings, as well as architectural symbolism in some of history's most sacred churches. Of course, we also learn who committed the murder and why - although this is almost secondary next to the real epic mystery the novel uncovers.

If there are flaws in the plot, I was too busy reading to discover any. That is probably the sign of a terrific book! The writing is excellent and the characters are a bit on the super-hero/heroine side, but who cares? Is what "The Da Vinci Code" proposes true? Well, the research is correct. The historical events and people explored in the book are real. But no one knows the Truth...nor will we ever, probably. I think that some things are meant to be a mystery. With all the world's diverse religions and each individual's belief in what is Divine - the Truth would have to destroy the beliefs, hopes and lives of many of the world's population. So, perhaps, in the divine scheme of things, there are many more Truths than one. Don't take the book too seriously. Just read it and enjoy!

3-0 out of 5 stars ...and scene.
Readers of Laura Esquivel will recognize in Dan Brown's "The DaVinci Code" the same initially inspired meeting of physical science and the arts that formed the basis of her "Swift as Desire." In her novel, Esquivel forged a strong connection between the unlikely fields of telegraphy (as a literary endeavour) and astronomy. In Brown's novel, he begins with an interesting plot that utilizes some actual mathematical patterns in Leonardo DaVinci's masterpieces. Unfortunately, it is a meeting that gets similarly bogged down by the middle with its own premise. While Esquivel gets tied up in romantic psuedoscience, Brown gets attached to a single religious metaphor that eventually turns into a (seeming) political agenda.

This is a murder mystery in a sense, but feels for the most part like a treatise on women in Christianity. The implications of the so-called "sacred feminine," a religious devotion to female... um... well, we never quite find out why women are so great..., are both too heavy handed and light-weight, and lose their force by the 12th chapter. The conclusion has little to do with the evidence set up throughout the book; and in the last hundred pages, the main character is interpreting almost everything as a symbolic womb. Much like the soundtrack to "Eyes Wide Shut," a movie Brown references in "The DaVinci Code," he takes an interesting premise and beats his audience over the head with it, rather than letting them discover it gradually for themselves.

There is an influx of new information preceding each chapter's remarkable discovery that detracts from what was an interesting, cryptologically-centered premise with good evidence. I suspect this has something to do with the critical praise that has elevated the novel to "a work of genius". This is not without merit. There is much promise here, and much passion that is just a little too latent, that I couldn't help feeling at points like I was reading a laundry list of cool things that Brown wanted to address at some point. He waits until a critical juncture in the events before unloading vast quantities of symbolic history on his reader- some of which is questionable in its accuracy- and then pulls his characters through it almost as an afterthought. There is much made of the goddess worship by the main character, but in the end this same character spends more energy mentally undressing churches than he does discerning the unique qualities of his inevitable love interest. In the end, we know that she is as smart as he is and has nice legs, but their attraction is a mystery. For all we can tell, they get together because he's a guy and she's a gal and they have matching diplomas.

That said, the beginning of the book is very good- there are some genuine laughs and intriguing questions that get misplaced. Brown conveys a genuine love for the work and the tangents it takes him on that ultimately prevents you from judging the glaring problems too harshly. Unfortunately, you get a sense that Brown is lost for most of his brainstorming session, and ends up at the last forty pages needing to end the book and not wanting to.

For more in depth pondering of these questions, read anything by Kurt Godel, or maybe even come back to Dan Brown in a few years. The book was entertaining and I'd be interested to see what more he can add with his current influence.

4-0 out of 5 stars A guilty pleasure
My wife read this book first and enjoyed its mysteries, revelations and pacing, but was uncomforable with its portrayal of Christianity. I share her feelings, but we both agree the novel is worthwhile as a guilty pleasure. The book is cleverly and expertly done. The use of real historical organizations, such as the Priory of Sion, Opus Dei, and Knights Templar give it a serious, true-life sense. The fact that larger-than-life historical figures like da Vinci were involved with -- and even led -- The Priory of Sion gives it wonder. And author Dan Brown has cooked up a clever premise in which the foundation of Christianity would be shaken if the "truth" were known. And so the chase is on, with a symbologist, a cryptologist, and eventually a Royal historian solving riddles and rhymes in their search for the Holy Grail, with the French and eventually English authorities nipping at their heels as they are blamed for an increasing number of murders.

But what starts out as a fascinating cerebral adventure with a near literary tone can't quite hold that highminded course. What commences as wine and filet mignon dwindles to cola and hamburger. Maybe that's what happens when you cross the channel. The richest parts of the book come when we are in the head of the protagonist, Robert Langdon -- especially at the beginning, when he sees a historical, even ancient, symbolism in practically every object that meets his eye. These roots of our now familiar symbols are fascinating. But when the chase is on and ongoing puzzles need to be solved, they become tedious and even simplistic. The "difficult" clue concerning Sir Isacc Newton and an orb? Duh! And the "unseen" bad guy was all too obvious. Plus, I don't really think the French and English police are as dumb, naive and comical as this book would lead you to believe. However, when Ron Howard and his "Brilliant Mind" team produce the movie, as I've read they will do, I'm sure a lot of these discrepancies will be ironed out. Hopefully, the movie will hold to that rich Mona Lisa atmosphere the book so promisingly begins with. I have faith.

As for the attack on Christianity, when He was arrested Jesus told Peter to put up his sword. Because, if He needed to, He'd bring down legions of angels to kick butts. That's good enough for me. Meanwhile, everyone should enjoy The Da Vinci Code and take it for what it is -- a work of fiction built from elastic facts, like looking at clouds and seeing myriads of differing visions. Anyway, Langdon's true insights on symbols are worth the price of admission.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book, its fiction, don't shout abt lack of authenticity
I am in no way connected with the history of art or the birth of Christianity, so had an open mind while reading the book. Hey, its a work of fiction, leave it at that, don't worry abt the lack of authenticity.

The book offers an interesting read, but is jumpy at places when Langdon thinks abt what he taught in class or a penitentiary, when in fact facing a grave situation. May be the author added this for suspense and to keep the reader guessing.

Having said this, am appalled at the one star reviews, hey the guy has used some imagination, give him credit for that!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Middleweight Page-Turner
Brown's latest thriller is all the rage this season, and it's a pretty good page-turner. The curator of the Louvre is murdered and intrepid Harvard scholar Robert Langdon (you met him in Brown's last book) meets up with another European girl (this time she's French instead of Italian). Hijinks follow. The historical research is wide, without ever being deep. But it adds a fun veneer of deep mystical somesuch to the plot. Leonardo da Vinci, secret Vatican cabals, Opus Dei, mystical this-and-that. It makes for a fun read.

As other critics have pointed out, the facts of the book are often muddled and inaccurate, suggesting the research may have been done by one of those credulous sorts who always believes the last thing he reads. The characters are paper-thin cutouts, mere devices who grab hold of the plot early on and cling to it for dear life. The dialogue is silly and predictable. The author's irritating penchant for hanging on to clues and half-clues, doling them out slowly is a device of the B-grade pop mystery novel. Like its predecesors, this book is sort of a middleweight version of Umberto Eco's towering novels. Not too challenging, but it keeps the pop public entranced, sells a bunch of copies, and lets us all feel like we're initiates into some secret society. Bravo -- a lot of fun ! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Read the first page!!!!
Fourth of July is a great read, and I think it's the BEST of the series so far.Alex Cross, watch out.Lindsay Boxer is on your tail.

The writing in Fourth of July is crisp and powerful. Don't take my word for it, just read the first page!If you love James Patterson books, this one really delivers the rush we've come to expect.Short, action-packed chapters, and it's over too soon.

This story focuses on Lindsay, but that's okay.Time to get to know this great cop a littlebetter.The opening chapters are riveting.The death of a sad-sack kid leads to a traffic stop where Lindsay and Jacobi are gunned down - and the action never stops.

The other girls in the Women's Murder Club are largely absent here, and I admit to missing them, but I loved getting a deeper involvement with Lindsay - plus a new member of the Women's Murder Club is a promising addition.

To those reviewers who don't like James Patterson books, I don't understand why you people bother to review him.For the rest of us, The Fourth of July is an exciting and very satisfying book.The master of the genre is still on top of his form.And I'm looking forward to reading number Five.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lindsay's story
Having read the 3 previous novels of this series, I have to say I was disappointed with the 4th.I forgot about Claire and Cindy and when they would resurface along the storyline, I was like "oh yeah, you're part of the story too".It was just about Lindsay, her trial, and trying to solve a 10 year old crime.It was a true JP book:short chapters, twists and turns in the plot, with an unexpected killer in the end.I would definitely recommend it, especially if you've read the previous novels and are planning to continue reading the series.I see some "paths" that could be explored in future novels.

1-0 out of 5 stars not worth buying
I read the first three books and this book fell flat.It was so boring I skipped many parts just to finally get to the end.I read the advanced copy and told many of my customers not to buy this book.I recommended The Innocent by Harlan Coben

3-0 out of 5 stars Gory and Sadistic....Why do I love it?
As the previous reviewer mentioned Patterson is a love him or hate him type of author.I fall in the latter category.I find most his books to be by an almost nonsensical level of violence and other less specific types of mayhem.I keep reading them because in spite of the lack of character development in his books he is just one of those authors who's work is hopelessly addictive.

Overall-I have to grudgingly admit that this book is better then Big Bad Wolf.

4-0 out of 5 stars I can't help it, I like this stuff
As with all of Patterson's works, 4TH OF JULY is on the same level as ROSES ARE RED and KISS THE GIRLS----all equally good books, especially for the beach. In JULY, Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer is called away from a get-together with her friends Claire and Cindy to follow-up on a crime-scene investigation. Lindsay and her partner Warren Jacobi trail a stolen black Mercedes, seen at two other crime scenes. The plot careens from there in logical but suspenseful twists and turns. The chapters are only a few pages each, so the action shifts all over the place. The one unrealistic aspect of this book that I did not care for was the trial. She had this trial hanging over her head the whole book and yet she never really seemed to worry about it, at least not in the way that most normal people would.All-in-all I found this to be an excellent beach read, the way McCrae's CHILDREN'S CORNER is or perhaps another fun book, A SHORT HISTORY OF NEARLY EVERYTHING.But a word of warning:You'll either love Patterson or you won't.At any rate, JULY is a great place to start----especially this summer. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Winter Prey is bone-chilling suspense
Winter Prey is suspenseful and tense. The setting is rural Wisconsin at 20° below. The hero is the likable Lucas Davenport, who gets pulled into solving the murders of the LaCourt family by the small-time county sheriff, an inexperienced, near retirement, sometimes pathetic, but mostly sympathetic character. While the dialog was sometimes less than impressive, the story was action-packed. A real plus--there was never a moment before revealing the murderer that I even thought I knew who it was. The Iceman is a real surprise, not only because of the twists in the story, but also because you're not given enough information to suspect him. I plan to read more John Sandford after this, mostly for the character Lucas Davenport. I only hope they don't have such corny, awkwardly written love affairs as the one in this book with medical examiner Weather Karkinnen.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good
Lucas Davenport is feeling the ice-cold winter in this book in the prey-series. A horrible killer is on the loose, and contrary to many Davnport novels, the reader does not initially know who the killer is. But we are inside his mind all the time, we are inside his house, we listen to his talk, his thoughts and his 'family's' thoughts. And those are chilling thoughts. We know that the killer wants to kill Weather, the small-town doctor, who will later become Davenports girlfriend. The town's sheriff is trying to help as good as he can, but has issues on his own, specially after the town priest become suspect number one. All the evidence points this way, and it is now up to Daenport to sort through what is right and what is wrong.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Sandford Novel Ever
This was the greatest effort, in my opinion, offered by Sandford's portrayal of tough cop, Lucas Davenport. The setting is in Wisconsin during the winter with temperatures at sub-zero levels. He, along with the Sherrif's department in the county, are on the prowl for a cold-blooded killer nicknamed, "The Iceman."

What separated this book from the others was that the ending was very much a surprise. Unlike other Davenport novels, we usually know the killer in the beginning but in this one, we can only guess until he is revealed at the very end. A great nail-biting thriller.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not the Best of Prey
I'm a huge fan of the Prey series and perhaps after reading too much of any series, one may tire a bit of the formula. I don't know but I found this installment to be uninspired and a tad tedious.

The subject of child porn should be a truly galvanizing and disturbing thing - simply because it is a hrrific thing - but the treatment by Sandford left me infifferent to the fate of just about everyone.

Sandford's better than this.

4-0 out of 5 stars Track a killer by following clues that reveal the culprits
The story begins with the actions of a serial killer who is attempting to cover his involvement in a sexploitation ring in Minnesota by killing the members of a family. When he is unable to recover an incriminating photograph by torturing the teenage girl, he sets fire to the house in an attempt to destroy the picture. The killer is referred to as the Ice Man, due to the detached and brutal manner he carries out his attempts to avoid being discovered.
Due to the nature of the murders and others that may be related, Lucas Davenport, a tough detective renowned for catching serial killers and recently 'retired' to the area is asked by the local sheriff to help with catching the killer. Davenport takes on the case and for some time remains a step behind the killer as he tries to determine what the real motives are. Finally, he recovers the photo, only to learn it is of such poor quality that there is nothing of value. However, he does get a break, obtaining a copy of an enhanced original, and the evidence is immediate and clearly identifies the killer.
The story is intense and it was difficult to pull myself away towards the end. I listen to books on tape in my car as I commute to work and several times I sat in my car for several minutes listening until a break point was reached. Like all good mysteries, there was a clue very early in the book that strongly pointed to the killer, but it was subtle enough so that it was not obvious. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Entertaining
I don't understand the reviewers who complain about loose ends. Do you normally expect the second book in a trilogy to wrap everything up? I'm guessing that those reviewers didn't realize that Zeck appears in three books (And Be a Villain, The Second Confession, and In the Best of Families, in that order). At any rate, any ends left loose in this book are tied up in the third.

But even if you know and care nothing about Zeck, you should still be able to enjoy this books; he does not dominate it. Wolfe and Archie are both in top form, and the ploy Wolfe uses to expose the murder is both enjoyable and clever.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite, but still OK
My main complaint with this book is that the villain's only trait is that he is a member of the Communist Party.

I understand that this was written in 1949 and that was the mindset of the time, but in these more (hopefully) enlightened days, shouldn't a villain be a little more of a complete person than simply being an enemy of the US in the Cold War (now defunct)?

I wouldn't mind if there were other traits, such as bad behavior of some sort (but a plot point is that you can't tell who the guy is because he acts just like everybody else; they only have a picture to go on), but there is none of that.

A man just comes in at the beginning and says "I want you to find this man.He's a Communist," and off we go.That's the whole plot, and while Wolfe is his usual brilliant self in deducing the identity of the "Commie," I was just not carried along by the story until very near the end, when I simply let the momentum of it take me to the solution.

Certainly, in my opinion, not one of the best of the series.But Wolfe is still Wolfe (even if he is spouting uncharacteristic patriotism), and Archie is still wisecracking and flirting, and I still enjoyed myself, most of the time.And getting Wolfe out of the brownstone is always good for a bit of fun.All of which leads me to the conclusion that even mediocre Rex Stout is better than no Rex Stout.

3-0 out of 5 stars Confusing and amusing at the same time
Nero Wolfe and his young assistant, Archie (or is it Andrew?) Goodwin are challenged into identifying American communists, and the apparent murderer of one.Archie's snide comments about his lazy boss are the most amusing part of the story.The writing style is much more mature than most modern mysteries, but many details in the story (e.g., Mr X) were never addressed in the resolution.Be warned, you will be surprised.I enjoyed the technique of bringing all the suspects together for the final confrontation scene.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Second Confrontation
Nero Wolfe's favorite drink, beer, is not a beverage you can come to like on the first taste. You will find beer bitter and repugnant, but if you keep at it you will eventually begin to tolerate it, then to like it.So it is with Nero Wolfe.At first taste you will find him arrogant, eccentric, and thoroughly unlikeable.Keep at him.Because Rex Stout chose the novella as the format for most Wolfe stories you can read the stories at a sitting.After three novellas you will come to tolerate the corpulent crimefighter. After five, you will even come to have some affection for him.

"The Second Confession" might better be named "The Second Confrontation," because Wolfe faces his archnemesis, Arnold Zeck, for the second time.("And be a Villain" chronicled the first confrontation).When Sherlock Holmes discovered the existence of Professor Moriarty, he immediately undertook to destroy the professor's criminal empire.When Nero Wolfe discovered the existence of Arnold Zeck, he immediately began to avoid Zeck at all costs.Holmes' course of action led to the Reichenbach Falls. Wolfe's led -- you'll have to find out in the final novella of the trilogy, "In the Best Families."Suffice it to say that Wolfe undertakes to expose a communist, runs afoul of Arnold Zeck, gets his orchids machine-gunned, and winds up trying to solve a murder for Zeck.Along the way Archie gets in deep trouble with the local constabulary, Wolfe confounds the police,the two manage to outright break several laws, and they severely bend a few more.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not even a good beach read
During the week, my job requires me to travel.I pass the time listening to books on tape.I have listened to several of her books, and I have enjoyed them.In this recent book, I was so bored with the characters and the plot that I constantly rewound the tape to keep up with the weak story development...my mind wandered.I kept listening for the problem in the story but it didn't happen until the middle, and then the terrorists were injected into the story.The thread was so weak; I kept waiting for another plot to develop.It never did. I thought I had missed something so I rewound and listened again.I didn't miss anything; the main problem was weak and the subplot was weaker.

I guess I will have to add her to my growing list of writers who have gone so commercial that they publish, publish, publish with no thought to the content.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not good enough
I have to say I am getting very bored with the direction Ms. Johansen is taking the Eve Duncan series. First of all, on the cover it states that this is an Eve Duncan story, which is not. This is a Jane Maguire story just like Blind Alley was. Second, this story was filled with nothing more than the sexual tension between Jane and Mark Trevor. If I wanted that, I would buy something with Fabio on the cover. I think Ms. Johansen needs to get the story back on track with Eve, Joe and Bonnie.

5-0 out of 5 stars fantastic action-packed thriller
Jane MacGuire, the adopted daughter of forensic sculptor Eve Duncan, is almost kidnapped and her friend is murdered before her eyes.The roommate who betrayed them is killed in a suspicious hit and run.Trevor, who she hasn't seen in four years since they caught a serial killer in the ruins of Herculaneum, the ancient city destroyed by Mt. Vesuvius' eruption, brings them to the castle he is renting in Aberdeen, Scotland.Dr. Reilly, a brainwashing specialist, wants Jane who is the mirror image Cira, a slave girl who escaped with a treasure when Herculaneum was destroyed.He also wants the gold and coins that she smuggled out the day Vesuvius blew.

Grozak, a hate filled racist who detests the United States is prepared to go to any lengths to kidnap and delver Jane and find the gold and coins and bring them all to Reilly if he will brainwash people into becoming suicide bombers for an attack on the United States that will make 9/11 seem small in comparison.Trevor who cares about Jane is determined to protect her just as he intends to stop Grozak from carrying out his plan.Jane joins the mission to stop the man knowing it might coast her everything if they fail.

COUNTDOWN is a fantastic action-packed thriller where the stakes are high and failure could result in the death of millions.Over the course of the Eve Duncan forensic thriller series Jane has evolved from a street wise delinquent into a beautiful headstrong adult who will do whatever it takes to save her country.Trevor, an ex-mercenary operating on both sides of the law, meets his match in Jane and their relationships promises to intensify in future novels.Iris Johansen has written another winner that is heading for the New York Times bestseller list.

4-0 out of 5 stars I'm the only one who can save the world
I've been buying these books as soon as they come out, but I'm about to start passing them by. All of the female characters have a common attribute -- they seem to believe that they alone are capable of confronting the evil adversary and saving the world. In this installment, never mind that the CIA and Homeland Security can't do the job, Jane isn't about to let the bad guys get away with being bad. Come on Iris. It's too far-fetched to continue having these amateur characters assume such epic responsibilities.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good story, but something was missing....
I have read the whole Eve Duncan series and although I found COUNTDOWN to be a very good story there was something missing.It was fast paced and I read it quickly, but it revolved around Eve & Joe's adopted daughter Jane, and I was really disappointed that they were hardly ever mentioned.I hope when she writes the next one she brings them back because I really like those two characters. ...

Book Description

With his bestselling blend of nail-biting intensity, daring artistry, and storytelling magic, Dean Koontz returns with an emotional roller coaster of a tale filled with enough twists, turns, shocks, and surprises for ten ordinary novels. Here is the story of five days in the life of an ordinary man born to an extraordinary legacy--a story that will challenge the way you look at good and evil, life and death, and everything in between.

Jimmy Tock comes into the world on the very night his grandfather leaves it. As a violent storm rages outside the hospital, Rudy Tock spends long hours walking the corridors between the expectant fathers' waiting room and his dying father's bedside. It's a strange vigil made all the stranger when, at the very height of the storm's fury, Josef Tock suddenly sits up in bed and speaks coherently for the frist and last time since his stroke.

What he says before he dies is that there will be five dark days in the life of his grandson--five dates whose terrible events Jimmy will have to prepare himself to face. The first is to occur in his twentieth year; the second in his twent-third year; the third in his twenty-eighth; the fourth in his twenty-ninth; the fifth in his thirtieth.

Rudy is all too ready to discount his father's last words as a dying man's delusional rambling. But then he discovers that Josef also predicted the time of his grandson's birth to the minute, as well as his exact height and weight, and the fact that Jimmy would be born with syndactyly--the unexplained anomal of fused digits--on his left foot. Suddenly the old man's predictions take on a chilling significance.

What terrifying events await Jimmy on these five dark days? What nightmares will he face? What challenges must he survive? As the novel unfolds, picking up Jimmy's story at each of these crisis points, the path he must follow will defy every expectation. And with each crisis he faces, he will move closer to a fate he could never have imagined. For who Jimmy Tock is and what he must accomplish on the five days when his world turns is a mystery as dangerous as it is wondrous--a struggle against an evil so dark and pervasive, only the most extraordinary of human spirits can shine through.

Download Description

"In a riveting new thriller from America's Queen of Suspense, a young woman is ensnared into returning to a place she had wanted to leave behind forever -- her childhood home. There, at the age of ten, Liza Barton had shot her mother, trying desperately to protect her from her estranged step-father, Ted Cartwright. Despite his claim that the shooting was a deliberate act, the Juvenile Court ruled the death an accident. Many people, however, agreed with Cartwright, and the tabloids compared her to the infamous murderess Lizzie Borden, pointing even to the similarity of their names. To erase Liza's past, her adoptive parents change her name to Celia. At age twenty-eight, a successful interior designer in Manhattan, she marries a childless sixty-year-old widower, Laurence Foster, and they have a son. Before their marriage, she reveals to him her true identity. Two years later, on his deathbed, he makes her swear never to tell anyone so that their son, Jack, will not carry the stigma of her past. Two years later, Celia is happily remarried. Her peace of mind is shattered when her new husband, Alex Nolan, surprises her with a gift -- the house in Mendham, New Jersey, where she killed her mother. On the day they move in, they find the words little lizzie's place -- beware painted on the lawn, splotches of red paint all over the house, and a skull and crossbones carved into the door. More and more, there are signs that someone in the community knows Celia's true identity. When Georgette Grove, the real estate agent who sold the house to Alex, is brutally murdered and Celia is the first on the crime scene, she becomes a suspect. As Celia fights to prove her innocence, she is not aware that she and her son, Jack, are now the targets of a killer." ... Read more

Before Elmore Leonard abandoned westerns to blaze across the pantheon of bestsellerdom with his hip, stylish thrillers, punctuated with dead-pan humor and dialogue worthy of a David Mamet play, he might have written The Hot Kid; it has some of the same crisp pacing and well-defined, if not especially complex, characters that marked his earlier novels. A show-down between Tulsa oil wildcatter and millionaire Oris Belmont and his 18-year-old son, who's attempting to shake him down, says all there is to say about both men:

"I don’t know what's wrong with you. You're a nice-looking boy, wear a clean shirt every day, keep your hair combed ... where'd you get your ugly disposition? Your mama blames me for not being around, so then I give you things .. you get in trouble, I get you out. Well, now you've moved on to extortion in your life of crime ... I pay you what you want or you're telling everybody I have a girlfriend?"

Jack Belmont's blackmail scheme doesn't work, but after destroying his father's property, forging checks in his name, kidnapping his mistress, and joining a gang of notorious bank robbers after his release from prison, he encounters another man trying to get out from under his father's large shadow and create his own, bigger one.Deputy U.S. Marshal Carl Webster, who at age 15 shot a man trying to steal his cows and six years later dispenses equal justice to Emmet Long, the leader of Belmont's gang, now has Jack Belmont in his sights. Webster's exploits have earned him even more celebrity than Jack, who dreams of rivaling Pretty Boy Floyd as public enemy number one.

We’re in the early 30's here, just as a dust cloud is rolling across the Oklahoma plains--the days of Bonnie and Clyde, when gangsters captured the public attention, and Leonard makes good use of place and time. His minor characters are much more interesting than his protagonists, especially the women, and the writing shows occasional flashes of his trademarked ironic humor. But it's not as cool--or as hot--as even his most dedicated readers are used to, and there's barely a trace of the bizarre plot twists and unlikely coincidences that define his most recent caper novels in this one. --Jane Adams ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Koontz' Best Yet !!!
I've read everything written by Dean Koontz, some I liked better than others, of course, but "The Taking" is just beyond my pitiful ability to describe! It's the classic tale of good vs. evil, the end of the World as we know it - yet Mr. Koontz handles that age old story in such a fresh, new, and totally exciting way. This is the first book in a long, long time that I was hardly able to put down - it made me late to work and kept me up past my bedtime, yet as fast as I read it I was sad when it ended. Unlike so many authors who crank out a book or two a year - and it's not hard to come up with a couple of names really quick - Mr. Koontz' use of metaphor is so refreshingly unique, his descriptions so singularly graphic that you almost forget it's fiction! From the first line of the first page to the last sentence it's like skipping the first uphill climb of a roller coaster and jumping right into that breath-taking plunge - and it doesn't stop. A terrific read and one I can unequivocally recommend - five stars are not enough.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and Preachy
I have never read a Koontz book before, and know very little about him other than his name. I picked up this book because it promised a spooky read. The opening was very good (though other reviewers have alleged that it is a "rip-off" of an SK novel - I've never read the novel in question, so I don't know). I settled in to be engrossed and entertained. HOWEVER, as I moved farther into the book, I began to realize that the plot was moving towards a preachy, insipid, eye-roll-inducing conclusion. Ugh! I will never pick up another Koontz book. What a waste of time. (PS I completely agree with the other reviewer that mentioned the deeply weird "global warming" rant that happens in the beginning of the book - that little scene serves as a warning for the Far Right nonsense still to come.)

4-0 out of 5 stars The real "Left Behind" book
As I read Left Behind and some of the books in that series that followed, I realized how badly the writing and their understanding of certain biblical principals is. Being an avid Koontz fan I was very happy to see him address similar subject matter with his brilliant writing style. His descriptions for despair and evil's hold on this world were only equaled by the elaborate façade of an alien invasion. It's a wonderful work of fiction, well written, and with a spiritual message of hope.

Its always a pleasure to see these different directions that Koontz takes such as with Dark Rivers. Bravo!

4-0 out of 5 stars Not his best, but I like his writing style...
Also while on vacation, I started and finished The Taking by Dean Koontz. This is his latest supernatural thriller novel, and it's not bad. Not his best, but I still like his style.

A couple wakes up in the middle of the night as a strange torrential downpour starts. It feels oppressive and doesn't stop. Even some of the wild animals in the woods around them (like wolves) start acting strangely and seek shelter in their house. News stories from around the world show that this is not a local occurrance, and pretty soon TV and radio stations starting going off the air, along with the power going out. They go into town to try and band together with others, but people are acting strangely. There are odd creatures that are starting to grow out of fungus that isn't natural to the area (or anyplace else), and these creatures seem bent on evil and killing. They can even animate dead bodies and communicate through them. Throughout all this strangeness and killing, the couple is safe, along with the dog that is helping them find children that have been abandoned. Although they don't know why, the creatures seem to be unable to harm the children or the people/creatures that are helping them. The story progresses through the buildup of the alien creatures and what will happen to earth when they are done.

While this isn't probably his best work, I still like his style of writing. He paints vivid scenes with his words, and I enjoy building the story in my mind as he writes. The plot line seems to be a little short, with a lot of writing about not much action. If I didn't like the writing so much, I'd probably give it an average. But since I learn a lot about style every time I read a Koontz novel, I'll bump it up one star from there.

4-0 out of 5 stars There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio . . .
I have been a Koontz fan for many years, and I am becoming more and more so. In this book (as well as in his last few) there were no jars of eyeballs, no trophy body parts, no single madman out to terrorize the population. There WERE themes of good versus evil and the natural versus the supernatural, and I suppose that's why some people were disappointed in the ending.

What this book does offer is suspense, a wonderful job of a male writing writing in a female POV, vivid and imaginative writing, and a theme far wider than society versus a single psychopath. Congratulations, Mr. Koontz. You are growing wiser, and I will keep reading your work! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars MUST READING!
Detective Lindsay Boxer is out for her morning jog when an explosion tears through the streets leaving a townhouse in flames and three people dead including the owner, an Internet millionaire. As Lindsay looks for any survivors she learns there was an infant in the house who has since disappeared and a mysterious letter has been left behind by those responsible for the explosion.

Another businessman is found murdered along with another message, this time a warning of what will come over the next few days. As Lindsay investigates the new murder, as well as the disappearance of the infant, her friend and fellow member of the Women's Murder Club, Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas begins receiving email messages from the killers. The messages contain brief descriptions of what will happen and minor clues to who the victims will be.

Lindsay, along with fellow members of the Women's Murder Club; Cindy, Claire Washburn of the medical examiner's office, and Assistant D.A. Jill Bernhardt, must work quickly to find out who is behind the murders and why they are intent on killing someone every three days, but the murder of one of their own will send the other women on dangerous mission to uncover the truth about a friend.

Yes, a main character in the novel does die...but you need to read the novel to find out who. '3Rd Degree' is a great entry in the Women's Murder Club series. As always, the pages turn fast as each new surprise comes flying at you. Genuine characters combined with powerful plot twists make this an unforgettable reading experience and further proof that James Patterson is truly THE master of writing a suspense novel. What can be said about a James Patterson novel that has not been said before...the writing top-notch, the twists surprising, the plots original, the suspense thick and the pace lighting fast. Put this on your MUST read list!

If you like conspiracy books here are a few. Having read the TOP books in the Government Cover-up Genre; "Unconventional Flying Objects" (NASA UFO Investigator for 30 years) by the scientist Dr. Paul Hill; my FAVORITE is "Alien Rapture" by Brad Steiger and Edgar Fouche (Top Secret Black Programs Insider) - (Great fiction-soon to be a movie); "Alien Agenda" by the best selling author of 'Crossfire' Jim Marrs; and "The Day After Roswell," by Colonel Corso - I'd say these books are fun and a MUST READ also!

5-0 out of 5 stars Fast Mover
I read this book in one day, and like a previous reviewer stated, was disappointed it came to an end. Patterson has a unique style of changing the point of view from one chapter to the next, alternating third person perspective with the minor characters with first person when the chapter is about the main character. I found this approach interesting and refreshing. Also, Patterson likes to write short chapters, about 500-750 words per chapter. 3rd Degree has 111 chapters, but read quickly, with each chapter ending with a hook that pulled you into the next chapter. I wasn't real fond of the female detective club thing in this book, but found the story entertaining and never dull. His plot and the intertwining of current events relative to terrorism added realism to the story. I recommend this book to any fiction reader.

4-0 out of 5 stars I JUST LOVED IT!
IM NOT A FAST READER BUT THIS BOOK I READ IN 24 HOURS,I COULDNT PUT IT DOWN.I FEEL WHEN HE WRITES WITH ANDREW GROSS I ENJOY THEM MORE. I HAVE TO SAY I WAS VERY DISSAPOINTED WHEN ONE OF THE MAIN CHARACTURES WAS WRITTEN OFF,BUT IT STILL ENDED UP BEING A GREAT BOOK AS WERE THE FIRST TWO.IM LOOKING FORWARD TO READING THE FOURTH BOOK. KEEP GOING WITH THIS SERIES EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT THESE BOOKS.

2-0 out of 5 stars 3rd time, not the charm
3rd Degree by James Patterson.

In this, the third book featuring the Women's Murder Club the story follows tough homicide detective Lindsay Boxer, as she struggles through a burning fire, apparantly started by 'August Spies' in an apparant terrorist attack. Starting a terrorism investigation, bringing in Deputy Director Joe Molinari of Homeland Security. Through all this Boxer also struggles through her deep feelings for good friend Jill Barnhardt, whose perfect marriage isn't so perfect after all.

This book truly was a matter of struggles. First you have to struggle with the slow pace of the book. It became almost painful to watch as Boxer was unable to put together simple concepts and come to clear conclusions.

The story, which actually became quite intereseting over the last 10 chapters, was stretched too thin. In fact, while reading this book, it felt as if Patterson just couldn't be bothered to write a compelling story. Rather, he wrote a novella length story and just fleshed it out, taking far longer to get interesting.

If you're stuck in an airport, with few other choices, you will want to pick this up. Otherwise, you should stick to more compelling stories.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Fast-Paced Tale From the Number One Writer of Suspense
If you liked the previous stories in this series (1st To Die and 2nd Chance), you should love this one. It has the same women, Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer, of the San Francisco police, Assistant District Attorney Jill Bernhardt, Medical Examiner Claire Washburn, and San Francisco Chronicle reporter Cindy Thomas. It has Patterson's brief chapters, terse dialog, and headlong rush through a tale of danger and suspense, It grabs you in the first chapter. As Lindsay Boxer jogs past a townhome, it explodes into a mass of fire, killing a corporate CEO. Three days later, another executive is poisoned, and the police find that they face a gang of terrorists that promise to kill every three days. The terrorists are smart, clever, and ready to strike back at the police. From this recipe, we get an intense story that races to a climax. ... Read more
