But the shocking death of a young woman Shelley once helped protect puts those plans on hold. Betrayal. The police rule the death a suicide but the grieving parents can't accept their beloved daughter would take her own life. They need to find out what really happened, and they turn to their former bodyguard, Shelley, for help. Revenge. When the parents discover that their daughter had fallen into a dark and seedy world of drugs and online pornography, the father demands retribution against those responsible.

This is not your typical Patterson book. It is set in England and his co-author Andrew Holmes is either a native or has spent a lot of time there. All that said, the story is fairly interesting and the characters equally so. I finished it and enjoyed the ride. However, if you like Patterson's usual style, keep in mind this is a lot more like reading Ian Rankin (whom I like a great deal) than it is Patterson. You have to be ready for more character interactions, including conversations, and systematic progression through a crime story, punctuated by periodic "action" moments far apart.

I am a big fan of Patterson and realize that he doesn't author all the books that have him as the author. I am OK with that but this one was so bad that I can't believe he would allow his name to be stated as the author. Too many characters, many that were not needed. Patterson should be ashamed of himself and all the critics who praised it should share that shame.
