The Instant #1 New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

assume you know someone. Harry Blue is the top Sex Crimes investigator in her department. She's a seasoned pro who's seen it all. But even she didn't see this coming: her own brother arrested for the grisly murders of three beautiful young women.

accept a reassignment to the middle of nowhere "for your own good." Harry's been sent to a makeshift town in a desolate landscape-a world full of easy money, plenty of illegal ways to spend it, and a ragtag collection of transient characters who thrive on the fringes of society. A place where little grows, but evil flourishes.

trust anyone. Looking into a seemingly simple missing persons case, Harry's been assigned to a new "partner." But is he actually meant to be a watchdog? Still reeling from the accusations against her brother, Harry can't even trust her own instincts, which she's never doubted...until now.

go anywhere without leaving a trace. Far from the world she knows and desperate to clear her brother's name, Harry has to mine the dark secrets of her strange new home for answers to a deepening mystery-before she vanishes in a place where no one would ever think to look for her.

Never Never is an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride with enough intrigue and suspense to keep you guessing until the final page. You'll never be able to put it down.

harriet blue -- book 1 of 4

This was my first Patterson book. While I enjoyed the idea of the plot I very quickly figured out who the antagonist was which kind of dulled the experience for me. The main character is not likeable and felt like an obvious characterization of what men think female detectives are although it is inaccurate. The sub-plot ended up unresolved and the motivation for the antagonist seems rushed and came out of nowhere. It also plays up false theories as to killers motivations in real life.

Awesome read. I could not put it down read it in 3 days. The type of story where you do not know what will happen next.

As my first James Patterson book, I enjoyed reading the first book in this trilogy. Felt Patterson captured the essence of living in a mining town in outback Australia. Could feel the lead character's anguish over her brother. Enough twists and turns, although possibly wrapped up too suddenly for the length of the book. Didn't guess who the antagonist was, but didn't get why the person was the antagonist either.

Looking forward to books 2 and 3.

I did like the suspense and the new characters in this mystery novel. I did not, however, enjoy the F word about 600 times in a 300+ page novel.

A very quick read, definitely a page turner, but I was quite unsatisfied with the ending. Patterson has a knack for suspense, that's for sure. I think I prefer the character of Harriet's partner, Whitt, over Harriet Blue (unusual since I love books with heroines), and of course I simply have to find out what happens to her brother Sam... I'm guessing questions that remain (more raised than answered in this debut of the series) will be addressed in subsequent books so I'll have to keep reading. Another thing Patterson is good at...

Interesting story. It takes place in Australia. An intriguing plot - two other story lines are also introduced. Looking forward to the next one.

I read it and it took along time (usually get thru a JP book in a couple of days) and for the life of me cannot recall much about it except did not care for the lead character much. Disappointment big time

This book does not move quickly, too much background clutter and don't get me started on the non-ending. WTF....

Another garbage book from the Patterson mill. Did he even read this thing which is so full of holes and with such an obvious plot that I figured it out less than a third of the way through?
