Publisher Comments:

You've been asked before, "Don't tell anyone the ending." With Honeymoon, don't tell anyone the beginning either.

All writers have a book that they know is their best book, ever. Welcome to James Patterson's Honeymoon.

How does it feel to be desired by every man and envied by every woman? Wonderful. This is the life Nora Sinclair has dreamed about, the life she's worked hard for, the life she will never give up.

When FBI agent John O'Hara first sees her, she seems perfect. She has the looks. The career. The clothes. The wit. The sophistication. The tantalizing sex appeal. The whole extraordinary package — and men fall in line to court her. She doesn't just attract men, she enthralls them.

So why is the FBI so interested in Nora Sinclair? Mysterious things keep happening to people around her, especially the men. And there is something dangerous about Nora when Agent O'Hara looks closer — something that lures him at the same time that it fills him with fear. Is there something dark hidden among the unexplained gaps in her past? And as he spends more and more time getting to know her, is he pursuing justice? Or his own fatal obsession?

With the irresistible attraction of the greatest Hitchcock thrillers, Honeymoon is a sizzling, twisting tale of a woman with a deadly appetite and the men who dare to fall for her. In his sexiest, scariest novel yet, James Patterson deftly confirms that he always "takes thrills to the next level" (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review).

Review:

"To be published on Valentine's Day, this solid and enjoyable but not exceptional thriller about a Black Widow killer has been selected by Bookspan as the '2005 International Thriller of the Year.' That's obviously jumping the gun, and probably has more to do with the unusual sales gambit by which Bookspan was allowed to sell the book prior to bookstore distribution than with the novel's quality. Still, megaseller Patterson, here writing for the first time with Roughan (The Up and Comer), again shows his usual flair for brisk narrative, strong suspense and genuine twists in tracing the story of how FBI agent John O'Hara tracks down serial killer Nora Sinclair. As the novel opens, beautiful Nora, an interior designer for the very rich, and already wealthy after having killed her first husband for his inheritance, is juggling an engagement to a hedge-fund manager in tony Briarcliff Manor in upstate New York and a marriage to a bestselling author in Boston. She intends to kill both, but chooses the hedge-fund manager first; after she poisons him, enter O'Hara, posing as a sympathetic insurance investigator but secretly working to nab Nora. In time, Nora seduces O'Hara, so his attempt to catch her is compromised by lust; there's also a major subplot involving a suitcase containing documents pointing to more than a billion dollars transferred to Cayman Islands banks, a subplot fully tied into the main plot only near book's end. O'Hara and particularly Nora stand as two of Patterson's most complex characters yet, but the narrative, while nearly impossible to stop reading, doesn't have the emotional pull of the author's Alex Cross novels or some of his Women's Murder Club titles. This is one canny thriller, though, and Patterson's millions of fans will be most pleased. Expect sky-high sales. Agent, Jennifer Rudolph Walsh. Major ad/promo. (Feb. 14)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

When rich men begin to die mysteriously, FBI agent John O'Hara is on the case. After a young writer succumbs to an apparent heart attack, John turns a probing eye to the man's ambitious widow.

Synopsis:

The honeymoon is over — now the murders can begin. America's #1 thriller writer returns with his sexiest, scariest novel ever.

If one reads this book, does the movie "The BLACK WIDOW" with Theresa Russell and Debra Winger follow the story line in the book as to make you wonder who is copying who?

This is another amazing novel by one of the masters of twists and turns. James Patterson keeps you guessing all the time. You absolutely cannot put this one down. But, please, if anyone has read this novel and figured out what was in the letter Olivia slipped into her daughter Nora's purse, I would love to know. Somehow this eludes me, and I can't figure it out!!!!
