The good
New York's Lombardo's Steak House is famous for three reasons--the menu, the clientele, and now, the gruesome murder of an infamous mob lawyer. Effortlessly, the assassin slips through the police's fingers, and his absence sparks a blaze of accusations about who ordered the hit.

In the chaos, he accidentally captures a key piece of evidence that lands him in the middle of an all-out war between Italian and Russian mafia forces. NYPD captains, district attorneys, mayoral candidates, media kingpins, and one shockingly beautiful magazine editor are all pushing their own agendas--on both sides of the law.
And the dead
Back off--"or die--"is the clear message Nick receives as he investigates for a story of his own.Heedless, and perhaps in love with his beautiful editor, Nick endures humiliation, threats, violence, and worse in a thriller that overturns every expectation and finishes with the kind of flourish only James Patterson knows.

About the author

Biography of Patterson, James

James Patterson was born in Newburgh, New York, on March 22, 1947. He graduated from Manhattan College in 1969 and received a M. A. from Vanderbilt University in 1970. His first novel, The Thomas Berryman Number, was written while he was working in a mental institution and was rejected by 26 publishers before being published and winning the Edgar Award for Best First Mystery. He is best known as the creator of Alex Cross, the police psychologist hero of such novels as Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls.

Cross has been portrayed on the silver screen by Morgan Freeman.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-01-01)

Patterson (www.jamespatterson.com) once again teams up with Roughan-after Sail (2008)-to deliver another page-turning thriller. Here, journalist Nick Daniels learns he's been granted the interview of a lifetime, with former Yankee pitcher Dwayne Robinson. Daniels arrives at Lombardo's Steak House ready to talk with the legendary player to discover the mystery behind his disappearance from the World Series when the murder of an infamous mob lawyer at the restaurant suddenly leaves Daniels in possession of a key piece of evidence.

This story packs Patterson's typical punch, featuring plenty of action and plot twists. But though actor/narrator David Patrick Kelly keeps the rapid-fire plot moving expertly along, Daniels lacks the character depth of series favorites Alex Cross and Lindsey Boxer. Only for Patterson's devoted fans and those liking mafia thrillers.

Book description

The good

New York's Lombardo's Steak House is famous for three reasons--the menu, the clientele, and now, the gruesome murder of an infamous mob lawyer. Effortlessly, the assassin slips through the police's fingers, and his absence sparks a blaze of accusations about who ordered the hit.

The bad

Seated at a nearby table, reporter Nick Daniels is conducting a once-in-a-lifetime interview with a legendary baseball bad-boy. In the chaos, he accidentally captures a key piece of evidence that lands him in the middle of an all-out war between Italian and Russian mafia forces. NYPD captains, district attorneys, mayoral candidates, media kingpins, and one shockingly beautiful magazine editor are all pushing their own agendas--on both sides of the law.

And the dead

Back off-- or die-- is the clear message Nick receives as he investigates for a story of his own. Heedless, and perhaps in love with his beautiful editor, Nick endures humiliation, threats, violence, and worse in a thriller that overturns every expectation and finishes with the kind of flourish only James Patterson knows.
