Very disappointed in Patterson. This was silly and not a mystery. Too much time spent riding in a car, chasing a car, using a car as a pulley or tow truck. What crap!!!!!!!!!

Happy ending and all! Very fast moving action in a compact read. The new setting in South Africa is a definite selling point. Characters are well-written and strong. Hopefully there's more to come!

Bookshots get straight to the point while full length novels allow me to get immersed in the stories. Borh are perfect for whichever suits my need at the time.

A tad frenetic, and everything the good guy does turns to gold. The supposedly competent bad guy, isn't.

Joey Montague and Khosi Khumalo were partners in Private Johannesburg until Khosi’s death. Accepting a job as a bodyguard, he has no idea what Isobel Collins is up to when she hires him. Evading gunshots from a pursuing Audi, Joey and Isobel arrive at the coordinates she was given. They arrive at a mine which is being illegally mined and the workers are trapped. The miners are saved and Isobel is surprised when she finds her husband there. Even more surprised to find that he is mixed up in trafficking as well as illegal mining. Not your usual Patterson book and seems to have been written hurriedly.
