This fabulous thriller is full of action and occasional humor, and just enough sex to make the heat rise when the book is closed. Give KILL ME IF YOU CAN a chance. You will not be sorry.

Synopsis

Matthew Bannon, a poor art student living in New York City, finds a duffel bag filled with diamonds during a chaotic attack at Grand Central Station. Plans for a worry-free life with his stunning girlfriend Katherine fill his thoughts--until he realizes that he is being hunted, and that whoever is after him won't stop until they have reclaimed the diamonds and exacted their revenge.

Trailing him is the Ghost, the world's greatest assassin, who has just pulled off his most high-profile hit: killing Walter Zelvas, a top member of the international Diamond Syndicate. There's only one small problem: the diamonds he was supposed to retrieve from Zelvas are missing. Now, the Ghost is on Bannon's trail--but so is a rival assassin who would like nothing more than to make the Ghost disappear forever. From "America's #1 storyteller" (Forbes) comes a high-speed, high-stakes, winner-take-all thrill ride of adrenaline-fueled suspense.

Even if their characters suck, their setting’s outdated, and their twist makes no sense at all, Patterson and Karp still could have saved this book... were it not for the fact that their entire premise is completely flawed.

In typical Patterson style, this is fast-paced, exciting and full of action. It’s different from some of his other books though in that its plot is less predictable
