Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

While conducting a once-in-a-lifetime interview with a legendary baseball bad-boy, reporter Nick Daniels accidentally captures a key piece of evidence that lands him in the middle of an all-out war between Italian and Russian mafia forces.

Synopsis:

A TOUGH REPORTER WHO LOVES HIS WORK

. . . AND THE WOMAN HE WORKS FOR

After a dangerous assignment, magazine reporter Nick Daniels deserves to rest. But his editor, Courtney, asks him to conduct an exclusive interview with an infamous bad boy. It's an offer Nick can't refuse, and he will do anything for his beautiful boss . . . who's engaged to the magazine's wealthy owner.

ALL THAT STANDS BETWEEN THEM IS THE MOB, A BILLIONAIRE . . .

AND UNKNOWN PLAYERS WHO WILL DESTROY THEM

Nick's interview goes to hell when a man is viciously killed in front of him and he captures a key piece of evidence. The Mafia hit quickly triggers city-wide bloodshed. With the NYPD, district attorneys, and the FBI after them, Nick and Courtney are caught in a war for power that reaches the highest echelons of politics and crime. Trusting no one, Nick only knows that someone very powerful desperately needs him dead . . .

Silvers Reviews, September 24, 2011 (view all comments by Silvers Reviews)
Another masterfully-crafted Patterson (Roughan).... suspense, tension, surprises, twists and turns at every page.

“In the horror of those moments at Lombardo’s, as well as in the haze and commotion of the aftermath on the killing floor, I’d forgotten that I had already been recording when Vincent Marcozza and those cops were murdered.”“I didn’t get my interview with Dwayne Robinson. But what did I get? Page 66

Lombardo's? Really? How could this happen in Lombardo's restaurant in the middle of the afternoon. And to top it off with a reporter close by and a famous baseball player waiting to be interviewed....really?

Nick Daniels was the unlucky reporter who had been in the restaurant when the murders occurred...he actually had recorded it and didn't realize it....he hoped the murderer didn't realize it either....but could that really be kept a secret when it is common knowledge that reporters carry habitually-on tape recorders especially when they are planning to interview someone?
Restaurants, tape recorders, reporters, organized crime, a woman...all this wrapped up into one to make Nick's life miserable and dangerous, but thrilling.

Don't Blink was very fast paced (maybe in honor of its title?) and a gripping page turner....the author(s) left a thought hanging at the end of one section and immediately picked it up within two sentences at the start of the next chapter. Storyline was excellent. I really enjoyed the book. 5/5
